Healthcare
We've been hearing about how healthcare online is a thing. This has mostly been our vision trying their hand at doing some telehealth during the pandemic. Others have been niche medical areas like pain management and some mental health support. I encountered an ad for One Medical on YouTube and I checked out their channel and even found they have a two-person provider office near where I live. I find the idea of having access to good medical advice on my phone or computer a positive thing. As I think through the use cases of going to a physician, I find it's always a heavy lift. Each person has a different tolerance level of going to a physician and many are driven by financial decisions.

Phones are the gateway to both RPM and remote wellness. Over ten years ago I was the person responsible for my parents' tech and buying and configuring a phone was as challenging as any work project requiring a deep analysis on tech, usability, costs, and future proofing.

I'll say that this particular Amazon product is a privacy nightmare. But what I'm interested in is the tech it shows us that will be available in service to seniors and the family that cares about them. America had a lonely senior population problem. Not all but a significant number. This leads to depression and isolation.

Getting the job done is always the priority. How do you set up people working from home without them ditching the main structure you rely on for security. Many places I worked had a silo for security with no mind to productivity. I am guilty of past transgressions in the name of delivery.

We are social creatures. We depend on each other in physical and emotional ways. Technology is a challenge to that and there’s a big divide based on these technology differences. One of the things that we are doing in our work is finding new ways to incorporate and integrate wellness into what we do every day.

There is a lesson when looking at all the public security beaches. The biggest problems are lax processes. Big companies have them all the time. The security company talks about what a larger org can do but many of these have parallels for small practices.
