You may also be thinking that the government’s mandatory implementation of “Electronic Health Records” (EHR) has made it easier for your doctor to access important data for consideration in your treatment. If you made that common and seemingly-obvious conclusion, you would be wrong. And you are certainly NOT in the minority. Most of your doctors agree with you!

In contrast, the advent and mandate of the EHR, especially in its current, initial phase, has created extra work for many healthcare professionals as they often “double document” information using a hybrid of paper-n-pen plus technology. Migration of so many institutions to a new workflow process has proven more difficult than many anticipated. . . which brings me to my point.

I came across a jewel today, courtesy of spōk℠. According to the company’s website, spōk℠ is “a leader in critical communications for healthcare, government, public safety, and other industries.”

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 2.47.19 PMThe company released a report today titled, “BYOD TRENDS IN HEALTHCARE: AN INDUSTRY SNAPSHOT.” (BYOD=Bring. Your. Own. Device. – computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.). The report surveyed more than 450 U.S. hospitals to draw some conclusions about the healthcare industry’s use of personal devices for work purposes.

Download the spōk℠ report HERE, or jump to my Top 5 Takeaways (below): 


  1. 73% of the 450 organizations surveyed allow some form of BYOD. This high percentage likely means that your physician or an administrator has use of a “hospital-approved” computer with a USB drive. If your physician balks the first time you try to share info from your #TMWF USB, keep pushing – even citing this reference material if necessary. You should be able to update your own medical file with information that is necessary for consideration in your treatment.
  2. 91% of physicians and 79% of administrators are “allowed to participate” in their institution’s BYOD program. Again, if the doctor says, “No, I can’t take your information,” ask an administrator instead.
  3. 52% on institutions allow a BYOD environment for ease of communication among members of a care team. 35% allow a BYOD environment because they want greater access to patient information. With your #TMWF Medical USB Bracelet, you’re enabling your care team to access the information they want, and your #TMWF USB easily enables transfer of information from your device to theirs via a very widely-adopted technology: The USB Drive.
  4. Of the hospitals who do not currently allow a BYOD environment, 35% report that a BYOD program is a “future initiative” for the hospital. Just tell them you’re helping them to be ahead of the curve!
  5. Summary: Don’t stop at one, “No – we don’t allow that.”

YOUR #TMWF MEDICAL USB fits right in with the current hybrid system of electronic and paper data. 

Entrepreneurs have developed apps and softwares targeted to the personal healthcare professional which attempt, and often succeed, at improving workflow and communication across care teams, and as a result, patient outcomes. The mammoth industry we call “Healthcare” is struggling to keep protected health information (PHI) secure while allowing professionals to use these emerging technologies from/on their personal devices.

Hospitals and large practices don’t quite know what to do with the problem of allowing use of personal devices in tandem with their long-standing processes for communication and documentation between healthcare professionals and with patients. In conclusion, it’s likely that your physician has access to his own laptop or computer at his/her workplace. If your physician really wants to work as a team with you, he/she will adopt the attitude of “Where there’s a will; there’s a way.” And if your physician doesn’t adopt that attitude, I suggest you find another physician.

In the meantime, you’ll fit right in to the data-driven migration with your #TMWF Medical USB Bracelet. Order yours by filling out the form at the bottom of this blog post: #TMWF – OUR BIG FAT GEEK GIVEAWAY!

  1. I have had two bladder revisions, my first one iwas n 1987, and over the years my pains remained. The bladder leakage left, but the pain remained. After about 7 years the leakage returned in a flowing fashion. So I returned to the doctor, but this time I lived in another state. Once again, I needed another revision. I again had another mesh implant, but to no avail, this once was worse than the first. I ended up with the erosion on the outside of my cliterous along with the mesh. I returned to another doctor. I have now had an entrocel and an eroctocel, along with phylops and an internal hernia. After my surgery, I was left on a walker for over 9 months, then to a cane. I am now diagnoised with Caude Equine Syndrome, where I am on pain meds and my last report, I am told I will surffer with this for the remainder of my life. So as you can tell, I am not a happy camper. Thank you for hearing me out and I pray each of us will be compensated for just being in pain. No amount of money will ever give me back my quality of life. GOD BLESS! A.E.
