AVID Design is thrilled to be participating in this year’s annual NACCDO/PAN Conference (National Association of Cancer Center Development Officers / Public Affairs Network), taking place May 5 – May 8, 2015, and hosted by the Yale Cancer Center at Yale University.

Throughout the week, AVID will be engaged in discussions with other creative and likeminded marketing, public affairs and development professionals. We’re excited at the opportunity to meet with and network amongst industry experts from around the country to constructively exchange ideas on a wide variety of topics. Some of these topics include industry best practices, innovative marketing strategies and methods, and creative, real-world solutions to the industry’s common pain points.

The event will feature seminar speakers during the course of the week who are also top-tier professionals from across a multitude of disciplines, such as media relations and marketers from some of the largest and most successful hospital systems, individual media relations and marketing firms, philanthropists and health writers from prominent publications.

AVID Design developed the NACCDO/PAN mobile app, available to download for Android and iPhone users. The app includes the conference’s agenda along with descriptions of the events and a short bio of each guest speaker. The app also offers a survey for you to provide feedback on each event to help improve the experience for next year.

AVID will be covering the event on Facebook, Twitter (@AVIDDesign) and LinkedIn using the official hashtag, #NACCDOPAN. Be on the lookout for some very interesting, informative and entertaining updates!

The Healthcare Industry…Strong Collaboration in a Crisis

As every healthcare provider across the globe focuses on Ebola – seeking the most up to date information and updating emergency preparedness protocols, this is when competitors become comrades within the healthcare industry. We work together and we share resources – all for the greater good.

We have heard the news reports and moment by moment updates from the CDC, but what we would really like is open dialogue with  the community – the people we serve every day. At AVID Design, we so value our partnership with GRHealth and Georgia Regents University and we’re happy to pass this helpful information along to the citizens of this area. GRHealth is hosting a Community Ebola Forum on October 21st – an opportunity to learn more and get answers to questions.

By continuing to share improved processes and more advanced treatment solutions, we stand stronger, together.

Your Video Games Are Getting Into My Healthcare…Wait, What?

If you didn’t know, last Fall Microsoft released a motion-sense video game controller for Xbox 360 called Kinect. While it’s gotten relatively mixed reviews in the gaming world, other industries are seeing a different use for it as a new technology interface.

Could Kinect have real-life practical use in the healthcare industry? Microsoft says so.

Kinect and Healthcare

Microsoft recently brought Kinect to the Pacific Health Summit in Seattle and showed how it could actually have a practical, real-life application.

The demo involved a video-conferencing interface that created virtual 3D avatars for each user. The avatars could correctly match significant facial expressions. The application that Microsoft suggested was based on anonymous group therapy sessions.

Immediately, healthcare providers started seeing the potential for this technology for remote patient monitoring and tele-health applications.

To help patients communicate with doctors and vice versa, you soon may start seeing protypes in:

• Hospital rooms

• Nursing homes

• Patient homes

At the end of the day, Kinect is not just a novelty game controller but a completely new computer interface that has the potential to become uniquely user-friendly and lend itself to new industries.

I think there’s something really wonderful about the innovation of the healthcare industry and its constant search for better solutions for communications between doctor and patient. What do you think? Tell us, we’d like to know.
