A Brighter Healthcare & Lab Traning Future

Donald presenting at a CPR BLS training conference in Orange County Ca  several years ago.

This was a great event and lead us to Edward who now helps us with our publishing and newsletter distribution.

Here is an old medical data storage system we found in someones storage.

These brough back some old memories as Matt used to sell these in New York  decades ago, click now to see the new products


We are a group of current and retired healthcare technology experts that meet to review industry trends and technology. Our goal is to help others in our community buy providing insight and direction when it comes to CPR training and certification software and it's relation to medical staff hiring and turnover rates.

From dental assistants to EMT training programs, all of these medical tranining facilities require American Heart CPR certification as part of their student requirments. Can you imagine tracking these types a stats using a basic spreadsheet, it's a daunting task to say the least.


What we seem to run across most of the time are CPR training programs that depend on the student or office to remember when to renew their training certifications.

As you know, most medical facilities are busy with day to day healthcare and patient care, not really focused on tracking medical license or certificaiton renewal dates.

This can become a problem, as allowing CPR and other certifications to lapse can open up a massive door for lawsuites by clients in the event something negative occurs.

Recently, we had a board member researching lab information systems, like solutions from ASPYRA that helps a large number of medical facilities with ongoing lab process management and work. She  found out that most labs are stuck in theor old ways, but there are positive benefits to choosing a modern system that can run your lab in todays market. 

This raised several questions among the group, and we look forward to her research and presentation at our next meeting. This is an example of how we like to dig into technology. Someone from our board takes the initiative and we rotate the presenters at each software gathering we have.

We have been invited to speak on a few discussion panels, which affords us the change to share and learn from other industry experts. It's always great to meet up with those that share a passion for the healthcare industry. Now that we are in the age of automation, a comon conversation seems to be around  selecting laboratory information system software that helps streamline our members medical and testing labs.

Trade shows offer a large opportunity to learn more about new solutions in a single space, but the events can be tiring for some of the older members in our group.
