    Baltimore AIA – Edge Harbor and City

    Designers from the Baltimore office recently completed an entry into the AIA Baltimore Edge Competition. The cities chapter put on the competition in concert with the spring lecture series that brought in academics, local experts, and nationally recognized designers to discuss Edges, and the inner harbor of Baltimore. The Edge: Harbor and the City had the prompt of asking if a built structure could be placed on the harbor’s edge to link the land and the sea, the city and the harbor. CannonDesign Baltimore, took the prompt further and explored along a long-buried historic waterway into the harbor: the Jones Falls. The competition limited the group to four images and...

    Last month CannonDesign’s Baltimore office opened its doors to students from the Baltimore Design School (BDS) for a new program aimed at providing a glimpse in a day of a designer.

    Earth Day 2019: What Will We Do In the Next 11 Years?

    It has been 49 years since our first Earth Day in 1970. Forty-nine years is quite a run. The passion and awareness ignited during those inaugural events in 1970 have driven significant positive change in our relationship with the natural environment. Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and many will undoubtedly hoist up that number proudly. This year, however, let’s focus on a different number: 11. According to a report released in 2018 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we must halve our emissions by 2030 to avoid a future defined by catastrophic climate change. That deadline is just 11 years away. CannonDesign knows...

    A Day With Baltimore Design School

    Our office is partnering with the Baltimore Design School for Designer for a Day. This is a program that will give students the opportunity to visit our office and see how their work in school relates to the profession. The Baltimore Design School is a public city school that has a focus on architecture, graphic design and fashion design.

  • Understanding the World of Telehealth Reimbursement

    Understanding the World of Telehealth Reimbursement

    Telehealth not only has the ability to increase convenience and improve care for remote patients, it also improves emergency department throughput, and ultimately can reduce potentially avoidable admissions. While telemedicine capabilities are some of the most exciting existing in healthcare today, inconsistent reimbursement standards continue to hinder successful program adoption. Challenges continue in navigating the state-level variability in regulations and capturing procedures to receive the appropriate compensation and reimbursement. Because of its potential, it is crucial for organizations implementing telehealth to work closely with legislators and insurance companies to ensure reimbursement occurs in a timely and effective manner. Fortunately, the growing interest in implementing telehealth solutions has prioritized reimbursement evolution....
