Healthcare is one of the most important industries to mankind, as it helps people live better lives in a multitude of fashions, ranging from less pain to simply living longer. As technology gets more advanced as each and every day pass, it’s certain that the field of healthcare will continually adopt brand-new technologies in the field. This will increase the function of healthcare nearly instantaneously, after initial bugs are worked out.


Here are a just a few of the most popular trends in healthcare information technology, and how they’re slated to shape the industry in 2018 and beyond.


Digital healthcare, obviously, is set to become far more popular in 2018 than it’s ever been before. Doctors, although they’ve already begun to do so in previous years, are increasingly relying on the power of mobile devices to FaceTime and otherwise video stream live feeds between themselves and patients in rural, remote areas from which patients typically can’t visit doctors because they either can’t afford to leave, have no means of travel, or are too sick to leave.

Drew Madden Knows What He Is Doing In The Field Of Information Technology Directly Related To Healthcare


Drew Madden has helped the consulting companies he’s worked for achieve lofty goals, including raising the annual revenue of Nordic Consulting Partners from a paltry-yet-respectable $1,000,000 to $130,000,000 from 2011 to 2016, an impressive leapfrog in just half of one decade’s time.


With Nordic Consulting Partners, Drew Madden reeled in several KLAS awards for excellence in the field of healthcare consulting, bringing home the number-one ranking for Epic Implementation Services in 2012, then again in 2014.


But that’s not it – while Mr. Drew Madden was serving Nordic Consulting Partners from 2010 to 2016, he increased the number people the company employed by a wide margin, up from just two handfuls’ worth – ten – to an astounding 725.

A recent news article posted on featured the topic of Native American culture being appropriated on the runway. A Lebanese designer named Zuhir Murah showcased his new spring/summer 2018 couture fashion line in hopes to “celebrate” Native American designs and artwork.

The title of the collection is called “Indian Summer”. There was seemingly a lot of effort put towards drawing inspiration from Native American culture in the display of the show. Though I’m not sure the designer was aware of what and how the people of this culture desire to express themselves in the modern age.

Even with all that misdirected effort, the designer didn’t appear to hire any Native American models to wear the clothes that were supposedly in tribute to their heritage. Some argued his use of feathers in the models’ hair was racist and stereotypical. I think it is very possible this designer created this fashion line with very pure intentions. He says he only wanted to show respect towards their culture.

I believe this is a chance to start a dialogue and educate ourselves on the way Native Americans wish and deserve to control their own narrative and image. As history shows, Native Americans have been persecuted for their cultural identities for centuries and forced to assimilate into American lifestyle. Of course, as the decades change, one’s cultural image changes with it. And so, is it not fair to allow Native Americans to take hold of how their identities and stories are shared with the rest of the world?
