Here’s a special announcement from LeAnn Thieman, our Keynote Address Speaker for #NNBA2018. All nurses and healthcare workers have stories to tell…and LeAnn Thieman wants to hear them! As author of the New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup for Nurses Soul series, she is now collecting stories for her third edition of SelfCare for HealthCare™.

An important reminder! NNBA Members Web Page: NNBA members can have their own web page to promote them self and their business. Business owners that have a website will benefit from backlinks to your site, increasing your SEO. For nurses that don’t have a website, a web presence is a must in today’s digital age. People have to be able to find you, learn about your business, the products and services you have to offer. This benefit alone is worth well more than double the cost of membership. Just fill out the Web Presence Application form and within 3-5 business days, your webpage will be up!
Last week Apple announced that patients at 12 national health systems will soon be able to access their medical record data on an iPhone or iPad. It went into beta testing on January 24th and officials expect it to be available as a free download soon. Cedars Sinai’s Health in Los Angeles, Penn Medicine in Philadelphia, and Dignity Health are a few of the health systems mentioned.
I heard a great quote recently, “Habits eat good intentions for breakfast”. It resonated with me because habits are so much stronger than intentions. 5 Habits to Grow Your Business Fast offers some great advice. Two of the articles of interest below deal with impressive software applications and telehealth. Telehealth Lends a Helping Hand to Senior Fall Prevention has evidence of shortening recovery times and compelling seniors to remain more active after joint replacement surgery. One of things you will find interesting are the challenges that Physical Therapists face with an ability to practice across stateliness and reimbursements issues, are very similar to what nursing is facing.
