What Will Replace Obamacare?

Posted by Niko Skievaski on Nov 10, 2016 1:08:48 PM

I had the pleasure of camping in the high desert Tuesday night as the rest of the world watched in horror, one jaw-dropping state at a time. In the morning I drove into town and turned on the radio to be shocked by the news, all at once. I began to race through the rhetoric of Trump's campaign, the policies he vowed to extinguish and the power he’ll have with a congress behind him: supreme court, trade policies, immigration, national security, social policy, healthcare—holy crap, he’s going to repeal Obamacare. As with much of his campaign promises, he vowed to remove legislation without a plan as to what would replace it. So what will Trumpcare look like?

Improving Diabetes Research & Treatment with Clinical Data Integration

Posted by George McLaughlin on Oct 24, 2016 11:48:15 AM

1 in 11 people worldwide live with diabetes. That’s over 415 million people suffering from a life-threatening disease that is also the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower-limb amputation. While decades of research and treatment have lead to enormous improvements in both prevention and treatment, the disease, which already represents 12% of the world’s health expenditure (~$673 billion!), is growing at a frightening rate. If advancements in prevention and efficiency gains in treatment aren’t made quickly, the world risks a staggering numbers of lives lost, as well as dire financial ramifications that could threaten the stability of countries worldwide.

3 Reasons Consumer Health Apps Are on the Rise (No, for Real This Time)

Posted by Niko Skievaski on Oct 19, 2016 10:08:16 AM

Patient engagement.

Some would say it’s a myth. Attempts to increase patient involvement in managing their health have been hurled from every angle, but it seems that until they are faced with a life-threatening illness, chronic diseases, or a broken bone, patients just can't be bothered to truly and proactively care about their health.

The Anatomy of A Facebook Page (for Digital Health Companies)

Posted by QuHarrison Terry on Sep 14, 2016 1:42:09 PM

Recently, I joined the Marketing team at Redox to help us digitally refine the way we grow who we are as a company and how we interact with our customers. I was immediately intrigued by how 20% of our all social traffic in 2016 came from our Facebook page... even though our current Facebook page is, to put it nicely, complete TRASH.

Companies That Play Together, Stay Together

Posted by Paige Goodhew on Aug 30, 2016 1:07:27 PM

Invisibilia, one of my favorite podcasts, started their second season with a story about the cultural transformation that took place on a Louisiana oil rig in the 90s. 

Oil rigs were very perilous working environments back in the 90s (and still are today, though to a lesser degree). Taking a job on an oil rig meant seriously risking your life every day.

The Connectivity Problem

Posted by Luke Bonney on Jul 19, 2016 10:57:59 AM

The healthcare industry is a complicated beast. Undeniably, it helps people lead better, healthier lives and breaks new ground every year in what medicine can achieve. At the same time, it's also plagued by issues that keep it from advancing at the rate it should.

My Water Broke, And You Should See This Sunrise

Posted by Niko Skievaski on Jul 13, 2016 9:51:58 AM

Nettie woke me up at 5am on Saturday, "My water broke, and you should see this sunrise!" She was a silhouette of orange and pink sky standing above a towel. We were six days past the due date and expecting labor to start. I struggled out of bed and prepped the hospital bag, made breakfast, tried not to freak out. It wasn't until noon when contractions started. Over the next few hours, they grew in intensity and progressed to around five minutes apart. They say not to go to the hospital until you hit around three minutes. I called our doula who came right over to begin her work. By nightfall, contractions had intensified but the frequency was still around five minutes. We decided to go to the hospital anyway.

A Love Letter to the Customer Success Team

Posted by Nick Hatt on Jul 5, 2016 11:30:00 AM

When I worked at Epic, I was asked to do many challenging and exciting things. The most challenging and least exciting thing, though, was being a project manager for integration projects. Since this role exists at Redox as the Customer Success (CustoSucc) team, I feel privileged to be working with people who are excelling in ways I never could.

In this post, I'll explain what an integration project is, why it's a project, and why Redox has a recipe for success.

Landing a Tech Job with Arts and Crafts

Posted by Nick John on Jun 27, 2016 11:00:00 AM

Oh, hi. I’m Nick John.

I joined Redox at the beginning of June as a Solutions Engineer. In reality, though, my relationship with Redox began a very long time ago: when I worked at Epic as the Director of Interface Implementation, I found myself on a number of projects with the founders of Redox, as well as several of the developers and Customer Success staff now working here, too. We each left Epic, one by one, to spread our wings and find new ways to help the world. I set sail for Portland to live the city life and climb its glorious mountains, while my friends set their minds to solving interoperability in healthcare.

Why we Meditate in Team Meetings

Posted by Niko Skievaski on May 25, 2016 11:43:34 AM

On Wednesdays we come together as a full team for our weekly meeting. We're geographically distributed, so the majority of us appear as a tiny box on a TV at the end of the conference room table. After the normal banter and AV woes are ironed out, the first thing on the agenda is silence—we sit and meditate together. This lasts about three minutes and is followed by a lap around the group to share your personal wellness intention for the coming week and assess how last week's intention went.
