The Rise of Scrubs with No Pockets
28 Jun

I’ve been working in the customer service department for over 14 years, and it seems like there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t learn something new. Recently I had a customer ask, “when are you going to start providing clean scrubs, especially warm-ups?”  The term “clean scrubs” baffled me.  We provide inter suits in our Worklon line; they look sort of like regular scrub tops and bottoms but are worn under cleanroom garments. However, apparently this wasn’t what she had in mind.

A Millennials Approach to Healthcare
03 Aug

Major retailers like Nike, Apple and Coca-Cola have all chosen to change the way they market to millennials and now healthcare providers are jumping on the band wagon as well.  This year Millennials overtook the Baby Boomers as the largest living generation, that’s a whopping 75.3 million people that will need a healthcare provider during their lifetime.  Similar to making a retail purchase, Millennials like to do their homework before choosing a healthcare provider.  But the Millennial approach

The Ever Changing World of Healthcare
27 Jul

I recently visited a Doctor’s office that for years had been independently owned and operated by a group of physicians. They were recently acquired by a very large hospital in Ohio. The changes were quite radical and it took quite a while for the staff to get acclimated with the new computer system and all of the new procedures that this hospital implemented. Of course this is to be expected when changes are made in protocol and systems that the staff had been used to and used for years prior. The same could be said with any changes that affect a job or a schedule that we are used to.
