The weekly recap: February 22 | For the love of T-shirts

I’m a T-shirt kinda guy. Always have been, always will be.

But you can get carried away with the concept.

First, the news.

The Hyland Blog

  • This week, we were proud to announce that Hyland has been named to the 2019 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For List® for the sixth year in a row.

How do we do it? Kathleen Vegh – Hyland’s senior manager of employee experience – explains that we accomplish this amazing achievement by staying true to our core values, which have been guiding us for the last 25 years.

  • Growing up, Eric Patalinghug’s father worked in manufacturing, where he not only became proficient with tools, he also developed a passion for them.

Inheriting that same love for tools, Eric – Hyland’s program manager for point applications – wrote a great blog post this week about how software solutions need to be as durable as the Craftsman’s his dad gave him 20 years ago.

  • AI in healthcare. Ken Congdon – Hyland’s healthcare content marketing manager – walked into HIMSS19 a skeptic. Then, he attended a session that changed his tune.

While the immediate value of AI in healthcare may not be the futuristic applications you read about in magazines and newspapers, Ken notes, the experts on the session panel believe that these solutions are coming. And interoperability will play a big part.

  • Another HIMSS19 session left Julie Clements – Hyland’s healthcare solution marketing manager – encouraged about two big issues affecting healthcare today: Interoperability and paper-based documentation. To put it mildly, we need much more of one, and much less of the other.

Read Julie’s blog post to check out a great example of how connecting payers and providers allows for more efficient sharing of patient data and delivers better care.

  • Last week, Terri Jones – Hyland’s marketing principal and government guru – wrote about how digital transformation is all the rage in Australia – providing better experiences for both users and citizens.

This week, she follows up with the foundation for transformation. With a content services platform, government agencies get agile and repeatable components they can use in an environment that encourages sharing of expertise and data.

  • Recently, Jessica Jones had a little data incident when her office exploded. As in, kaboom!

Luckily, Ms. Jones is a fictional comic book heroine. But even though she’s not real, her hesitancy about the cloud is a reality. That’s because she’s too busy fighting the bad guys to realize that the right cloud hosting platform will have the kind of security and redundancies that will keep her data safe – even if her office explodes. Again.

Hyland’s own cloud heroine (and product marketing specialist), Tori Ballantine, sets her straight.

Fav thing of the week

  • It’s a timeless question: How many T-shirts can you wear at once? This week, a guy from Ontario, Canada, set out to find the answer. Turns out, it’s 260.

You know who else loves T-shirts besides this guy and me? Yanni. But if you’re wearing so many T-shirts they block your view of your synthesizer while gigging at the Acropolis, you have a problem.

That’s all I’ve got. Have a great weekend!

    Scoop – Being a t-shirt kind of guy myself (I have about 200+/-), I’d love to know what your favorite t-shirt is… Mine tends to vary with the seasons. I feel like everyone should have a good holiday go-to t-shirt, mine says “I’m on the naughty list”. I also like the one that says ‘Dear Santa, Define Good’. I have an exceptional St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt that says “Leprechaun inside”. I won it at a bar that had a Leprechaun look alike contest. I had no idea the contest was even going on I just showed up after work and was declared the winner.

    Best all around t-shirt “AD HD Where on the highway to hey look a squirrel”

    Hope all is well.

  2. My fav is a t-shirt that is more than 10 years old. A few tiny holes have appeared. It’s usually at this point that my wife will walk up, grab one of the holes, and pull. Then she says, “Well, that shirt is done, right?”
