2013 brought us great improvements on existing products—iPhone5s, Xbox One etc. However, we see 2014 as a groundbreaking year for not only new products, but ideas all over the technology realm. 

We gathered together some of our favorite predictions from across the web and threw in a few of our own hopes for the year of 2014.

Best Responsive Websites in Healthcare

December 11, 2013

As I was researching for this article I noticed that Responsive Web Design was not really incorporated in the Healthcare field. Most websites I came across were information based and purely functional. However, there were some healthcare websites that were designed for all screens and had some features that we enjoyed.

10 Boston Organizations with Awesome Responsive Web Design

Our favorite local websites

November 07, 2013

Responsive Web Design (RWD) is one of our favorite design approaches when creating a website. It’s programmed to adapt to any sized screen so that users always see the same information without having to scroll to get to the content.

We think these 10 organizations absolutely rocked it.

A developer’s view on what went wrong with HealthCare.gov

Last minute changes rarely work to your advantage.

October 29, 2013

If you’ve listened to the news over the past two weeks, you’d know the rollout for Healthcare.gov, the Federal health-insurance exchange for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), has been far from smooth. From crashes to lost information, it’s clear the site has significant architectural issues.

Top Five Sources for Design Inspiration

Our favorite sites for inspiration and innovation in design.

October 14, 2013

How we design interactive experiences has changed so much in the past few years that it’s a challenge to keep up. With all the magazines, blogs and resources that exist out there, we asked a few of our designers and developers to share their favorites.

Why Apps Reign Supreme

The word “app” gets tossed around, but there’s much more to them than the mozzarella sticks you order before dinner. Here’s our take.

September 03, 2013

The term “APP” has become so common, we forget to acknowledge it was a specialized term generally only used in corporate environments five years ago. How and why have it become the dominant everyday technology term?

Goodbye to American Medical News

AMN has reported doctors' perspectives on practice, policy and pay since 1958.

August 21, 2013

Providing unique doctoral insight since 1958, American Medical News chronicled trials and tribulations of the healthcare institution. The Health Care Blog’s “What the Death of American Medical News Says About the Future of American Medicine” explores AMN’s history, and what led to its demise.

To Hack, or not to Hack, that is the Question

Hacking could improve medical device quality and security, but in the face of jail-time, trying isn’t so appealing.

August 16, 2013

The word “hackers” makes us think of identity thieves and friends posting embarrassing statuses on one another’s Facebook. But the hacking community could also save lives.

Medical device applications have seen their share of shortcomings, and hackers can expose flaws more easily than you’d expect. Computer World’s "FDA asks hackers to expose holes in medical devices, but many researchers fear CFAA & jail" explores the turmoil of those trying to help in an unconventional way.

There's an App for That

Medical apps may be running wild, but not if the FDA has its way.

August 06, 2013

With growing concerns over patient safety, app effectiveness, and compliance to other laws, notably HIPAA, the FDA is stepping in. The Verge’s "Side effects may vary: the growing problem of unregulated medical apps” poses the question, “Can the FDA crack down on phony medical apps without killing innovation?”

Responsive Design to the Rescue

The rise of the mobile device means every company should ask-- What is Responsive Design, and do I need it?

July 29, 2013

There’s nothing worse than finding a great site on your desktop, trying to open it on your phone, and all of a sudden it’s gone haywire. You want to read a compelling article, but need to scroll after every 6 words. Try to browse the menu, but it’s completely out of order (and you still have to scroll!!!) And the pictures that were placed so perfectly are in a crazy collage. Now that article has become unreadable, and you’re never going to that site again.

Luckily, there’s a fix for that.

The Price is… Huh?

Discrepancies in medical billing costs are baffling, and patients pay the price—literally.

July 25, 2013

“How much is this going to cost?” It’s a simple enough question, unless you’re asking about your upcoming surgery. Between doctors, billers, insurance companies, and hospitals themselves, no one seems to be able to give a straight (or correct) answer.
