  • Designing Successful Workplaces for an Unknown Future

    Designing Successful Workplaces for an Unknown Future

    Our workplaces must keep up with the fast-paced world of business. The traditional model of signing long-term leases, committing extensive capital to an inflexible solution, and then calling it a day is no longer viable. The technology, labor and workplace disruptions ever-present in our business climate have rendered this approach inadequate. This recognition echoed as a dominant theme during Bisnow’s recent NYC Office & Workplace of the Future event, featuring leading speakers on new and emerging office dynamics. I was fortunate to attend the event and spend the day immersed in future-focused ideas on how organizations can design workplaces to respond to and thrive amidst this rapid evolution. While there...

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

    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...

  • 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....

  • Decoding the Recipe for Success for Your Ambulatory Strategy

    Decoding the Recipe for Success for Your Ambulatory Strategy

    While the major shift from inpatient to ambulatory care is allowing healthcare systems to remain at the forefront of medicine, it also creates significant challenges with respect to reimbursement, revenue, and patient volume. Exacerbating those challenges, there isn’t a “one size fits all” ambulatory strategy. Just as there is no single type of consumer, there is no single right or highest use of an ambulatory facility. Every patient is unique in how they want to interact with a health institution. And technology, digital solutions, experience, and patient expectations all play a role in their interactions. In order to build a successful ambulatory strategy, health systems need to approach ambulatory care...
