The pMD Blog

Welcome to the
pMD Blog...

where we cover interesting and relevant news, insights, events, and more related to the health care industry and pMD. Most importantly, this blog is a fun, engaging way to learn about developments in an ever-changing field that is heavily influenced by technology.

Weekly Byte: My Virtual Tech Conference
At pMD, we have a small development team. Although there are a lot of advantages when you work in a small team (efficient communication, no red-tape, speed), one of the disadvantages is that you sometimes feel isolated. One way to feel like part of a larger community is by attending conferences, but finding and going to your favorite tech conference in Fiji is sometimes impractical. In these cases, you can often create your own virtual conference with your dream list of speakers all from the comfort of your own home. Recently, I made my own list. And although they don’t exactly have to do with charge capture or medical software, a lot of the themes are directly translatable to what we try to accomplish every day. I hope these are inspirational, and I would love to visit others' virtual conferences (someone should make an app for this!)

This is a mind opening view of what data really is, independent of the storage medium.

Closing Remarks:
