Health Tech Buzzwords Explained – Fun Friday

Far too often we take things that are complicated and make them worse or we take things that are simple and make them complicated. I guess that’s why I loved this list of tech buzzwords that were simplified in a humorous way.

The last 2 kind of fell flat for me, but the AI, Blockchain, and Cloud ones were great. I wonder if there some that could be applied to healthcare.

Patient Engagement – A way to get paid easier

Interoperability – Sharing data with my competitors

HCAPHS – Finally paying you for what you should be doing anyway

I’m sure you can come up with even better ones. I’d love to hear any ones that you come up with in the comments or on social media.
