The Design of You: Maximizing Your Inner Tech


When I ask my Grio teammates, “where do you live,” they all give slightly different answers. Some will say “San Francisco” while others say “the Bay Area.” Some say “the United States” while others say “Mexico.” While our answers may all be different, we do have one thing in common: There is only one place we will each live for the rest of our lives. That place is our bodies. 

In this blog, I’ll discuss how our modern lifestyles impact our “inner tech” and look at some of the physical and ergonomic solutions we have to keep our bodies in tip-top shape. 

Examining How Brain Computer Interfaces Will Shape the Future


We are not strangers to the unprecedented ways that new technological devices can reshape society. In the last decade, we have witnessed how things like smart phones and social media have dramatically altered how we, as humans, interact.

One of the major technological advances that will likely continue to shape our human interactions is brain computer interface (BCI) technology. In this post, I am going to delve into the history of the BCI and look at some of the current developments happening in the realm of BCI technology.

EMR Interoperability and the cost of Healthcare


Healthcare in the United States costs far more than in any other country in the world, and yet the quality of the care Americans receive is rated 11th among first world countries. The high price of healthcare burdens employers, increases the national debt, and historically has left many without access to healthcare. We all want cheaper, better healthcare, but it is difficult to agree on specifics of how to get there. Why is healthcare so expensive? 

Beacons in Healthcare


Thus far, IoT technology has had a minimal impact on the healthcare, consumer goods, and transportation sectors. Healthcare in particular is rife with opportunities to take advantage of IoT. Of the many classes of connected devices, beacons hold the most promise to have an immediate impact on hospitals and care centers in the coming years.
