  • The Role Of AI In Mitigating COVID-19 Confusion

    Much like the pandemic itself, debates surrounding the medical nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to fester, with much media fanfare.

  • The True ROI Of SSO And VDI

    To protect PHI, healthcare organizations often build a system of usernames and complex passwords. But why are we still relying on usernames and passwords when solutions such as single sign-on (SSO) have a measurable benefit of giving time back to clinicians, which is everything in healthcare.
