7 Healthcare Technology Predictions for 2017
While almost every industry stands to be transformed by emerging technology in 2017, we believe few will feel the impact as significantly as the healthcare industry. Nearly every emerging technology can have a direct impact on the way healthcare providers and wellness organizations operate. More importantly, the technologies we already use on a daily basis will become tools for enhancing the healthcare experience and exploring entirely new methods of treatment. 2017 is sure to be a ground-breaking year for digital transformation across this important industry. Let’s take a look at some of the most disruptive trends we see now, as well as how to handle new technologies that may come into play this year.
Apple is Cleaning House, is Your App at Risk?
In a move to improve quality standards, Apple has announced a purge of the App Store by removing apps that they no longer deem as up to date, or of the quality standards expected in the store.

The Value of UX: Get the Right Gift for My Mom
User Experience is the umbrella that encompasses all things related to the interaction of a brand (in our case, digitally) with its users. Almost every criticism of an app relates to a UX issue: "The application is too slow." "I don't understand where to click." "I can't read. The font is too small." "I don't like the way this page looks." "I'm always on my phone, but the site isn't responsive"... the list goes on.

There is no question that Pokemon Go is a huge success. I really enjoy playing the game when the servers aren’t down. This article focuses specifically on how the launch was managed. Let's take a journey to explore not the game but the launch of Pokemon GO. We will discuss four key lessons that may help you maximize initial ROI on your company’s next major app launch. For anyone new to the game, we’ve added a short tutorial at the conclusion to get you started.
Is CraftCMS Right for You?
Web developers have a lot of tools at their disposal, one of them being Content Management Systems (CMS). There are many different flavors of CMSs. Some cost more and are mainly used for enterprise clients like Sitecore, and others are free, open source options like Wordpress. If you're looking to get a blog up and running quickly, Wordpress is probably the right tool for the job. It's especially good for the nontechnical user. However, if you're looking to manage a wider variety of content by using relationships or having a more flexible custom layout, other options may be a better fit. One of these options is CraftCMS.
