Blog Post Written by Shannan Vance with Liaison Healthcare
Gary Palgon is a walking book of knowledge. Regardless of the topic, he has a beneficial reference either on the tip of his tounge, or in one of his large quantity of folders nicely organized on his desk. It amazes me how he can find a reference to just about any topic that comes up in conversation.
Personally, I just don’t have the memory to put my hands on anything quickly, let alone spout out an educational response on the spot. I find myself quite envious of his expertise in cataloging all the articles, books, webinars, and conversations in his mind – maybe Russel Crowe’s character in ” A Beautiful Mind” is based on Gary himself. Let’s just hope he doesn’t get schizophrenia anytime soon! We wouldn’t want his brilliant mind to every become blurred! Liaison would just never be the same!
That being said, Health Management Technology picked up one of Gary’s brilliant predictions for Healthcare in their “Eyeing Tech Development in 2020: Visual acuity no match for creative ideation in high-tech world“ written by By Rick Dana Barlow in January 2014.
Take some time to check out Health Management Technology’s artical andGary’s section entitled: HMT: What are two significant technological developments that you foresee being used in healthcare organizations in 2020, and will these technologies enhance or replace what exists today and why?
