The Medical Patient Experience Done Gone Digital!

I just got done reading a very informative eBook (Care Delivery Goes Digital: 6 Trends Impacting Healthcare and 2017 Predictions) on the effects technology is having on the medical care industry. If you have not already done so, you can access your free download by clicking the tablet image.

Mentor Mate Reports on a Digital Wave in Medecine

The eBook shares six trends that validate the effects of a technological world on patient care and its evolution. The article is an easy read and should spark valuable conversation (a gracious bow to Sarah Rockholt and other contributors to the study behind the article at Mentor Mate), but that third bullet of the six summarized by Sarah stood out for me because of a service I am personally familiar with in the network marketing arena.

The third bullet got my attention...

As a techie person (that happens to also market a healthcare product that utilizes tech-based solutions), I am intrigued by this new wave of tech-based services and tools that are helping to bring down the cost of medical care. This can revolutionize an industry that, more times than not, regularly impacts the bottom line of any family or small business. I'll let you read and share the article as I am doing, but one thing that I appreciate is how this kind of study and its published findings encourages thoughtful change and forward mobility. Some quotes that caught my attention were:

  • Page 10: “…the context of care adapts to fit the consumer…”
  • Page 11: “…patients now have more options…” (which led to predictions that care options will diversify and that even tele-medicine will be disrupted as the current primary consumer-centric solution it is today)
  • Page 35: “…there is a need to solve the Gordian knot of authenticating user health data on consumer devices…”
  • Page 37: (paraphrased) “…it's really about you – a “people-centric” healthcare system, not just tech and data…”

That's all for now! Just wanted to share my excitement about how this could be a benefit to my readers.

Till next time,

Good Goobly Goo, I’ve Gone Green!

"The old business card is being recycled!"
“My old business card is being recycled!”

No, no, no! Not as in money green! (Who knows what color money is going to be soon anyway?) It's OK to have that thought at first. Besides, “What's money got to do with it?” won't be a hit song any time soon!

Nope. I'm talking enviro-green! Yep, I ditched some paper to preserve the landfill space for something more important than a 3.5 x 2.0 card with my picture and selfish words in print! Although my contribution to environmental preservation may be small, don't laugh yet (or please stop laughing, OK?). Estimates are that over nine billion (yes, illion with a B), cards are printed each year, or close to 30 million a day!

But I also read somewhere that analyst are predicting this paper product to go the way of other non-digital paper-based dinosaurs as more tech-savvy users demand modern sharing options (MSO's – no, that's not an official acronym, I just made it up to be techie, but I'll use it since this is my post and I can almost say whatever I want!).

So yes, I went green with a MSO! See, that worked! Oh, alright, I'll cut to the chase and we'll be done in a flash.

I got myself a Virtual Business Card (yes, a VBC, and that is official)! It's quite simple: it's a business card that can be shared on any smart device from stationary computers, to mobile phones, to mobile tablets, etc., etc. Via text marketing (another topic that deserves a new future post), a very simple non-graphic text-only business card can quickly transfer your information to an interested prospect. In addition, you will collect contact information allowing you to share your product or service too.

An enhanced version (the one I opted for) gives a visual to your prospect and allows them to connect to multiple social media sites to learn more about you and/or your products and services. I also like the fact that now with a single click on my VBC, my information is downloaded into the prospects address book without scrap paper, copy/paste, or mistyped information!

Go ahead, check out my go-green contribution here. The card tells you and others how to get your own free VBC, thus making your contribution to the Go Green Initiative (which happens to be a real initiative, but GGI, unofficially, of course)!

Enjoy till next time!

By the way, just in case you're not taking my VBC by clicking above, you can also Text L390488 to 55255 for instructions on getting your own VBC.

 

Technology Fuels Essential Services (and you can benefit)!

Essential Services equate to time and financial freedom!Yes, I am veering from my normal topic for a quick “off-the-cuff” second.

I am writing this right now, real fast, so stick with me on this thought (and please forgive any typos)!

I often provide minor consultations on technology for network marketers and home-based business folks, but today I want to clarify that such consults are not why I am excited about my financial time and money freedom. The key to my calm (even if a recession hits at full force while you are reading this) is that I AM AN INDEPENDENT 5LINX REPRESENTATIVE!

In case you missed it, I just smiled real big! 🙂 🙂 🙂

I'm in the best of both worlds because of my initial career, based in the heart of modern technology (engineering and software), and because I am presently established in the essential services arena, which is largely fueled by the rise of technology in our daily lives!

What are you talking about Jon? Listen. This is very simple. It's how the big boys and girls (large corporations and insiders) make money. EVERY month when you pay your bills, they get some — YOU DON'T. I used to be in that boat, till I found out how I answered many questions like, “Do I know anyone that uses cell phones? or Do I know anyone who powers their home to turn on lights, or provide heat for bodies or other appliances? or do I know anyone who watches television, or surfs the Internet, or uses smart devices like tablets and/or businesses using the same, or credit card processing?” I had to answer the question, “Do I swipe debit/credit cards?” There were more questions asking if I used text messaging, or was concerned about protecting my identity or credit score, or even if I needed (or knew anyone who needed) to save on healthcare services?

I could not say NO to anything (for me or others I knew). WOW! Were these just luxuries or were they morphing into essential necessities? I knew that technology was important, but I discovered it is fueling everything we do. So, naturally, I welcomed news that the essential services used by me, and everyone else I knew, could also fuel my wallet at the same time!

Yes, I am a Super-excited Independent 5LINX Representative, making money and helping others save and/or make money on all these essential services, whether I'm consulting on technology or not.

There is nothing special about me. You can do it too. Yes, you can benefit too!

No worries, I'm not going to try to sell you anything, but if you want to see how the progression of technology fueling essential services can also fuel your financial portfolio AND buy back some of your time freedom for things you really want to do, hop over to http://jonlonon.com/5LINX and watch the video on the Opportunity tab, then click the Sign-Up Now button at the top of the page. Don't delay if you want to join because the team we're building is also using technology to fuel our rapid success. Why not invest for residual income on what you already do! As explained why in the video, be sure to choose the IMR starting position, and if in Canada, first click the Canada button.

Sometimes High-Tech Is A Real Handshake!

Jon after a "high-tech" handshake with JBudd in San Diego!
Unstoppable Entrepreneur Jon Lonon knows that “High-Tech” is not just connecting to things, but also to people!

Ok, time to shift gears…

As I am getting set at the starting line of more frequent updates to my blog, I got to thinking about how some technology is already “wired” into us as human beings. We simply need to check the box in our brains to enable it…and appreciate results we may not see instantly.

For example, “handshaking” is a common engineering term to suggest that two devices, similar or not, are establishing a connection or a bond.

I won't make this complicated. All I'm saying is that yes, there are many high-tech methods we can use to reach out and “touch” our prospective customers and business partners (e.g., smart phones to text or call, social media to chat, video to see and be seen). But what beats getting out there and shaking some hands? That's right, flesh to flesh, with an added SMILE!

That's high-tech (not low-tech) because it has a powerful effect on the best technology you possess – your brain! That “handshake” sets you on fire to run fast like that signal between those two electronic devices! (OK, maybe not that fast!)

That's all, just a quick thought to share. Now get out there and engage that high-tech handshake and that high-tech smile. It's been proven to enhance businesses everywhere!

In this picture I shook hands with arguably the leader in Internet Marketing, the guru himself, Mr. Jonathan Budd. Notice that I practice what I teach! Gotta run… 🙂

True or False: A Link Exists Between Technology, Non-Profits, and Network Marketing?

OK, Jon…what brings this true/false quiz to the table? =)

So glad you asked! You see me in this picture with four amazing professionals who were in attendance at the Working For Good Conference 2012 at Clark Atlanta University, where I presented on “Building Technological Capacity: The Technology Advantage for the Non-Profit“.

It was lots of fun! I met some amazing people! I heard about some amazing community and business programs!

In fact, a brief time before the event I heard one of my business mentors say that Network Marketing is basically “building a relationship network” and “marketing something of value.” I got to thinking, wow, that's exactly the formula to have success in the non-profit arena today! What better way for any non-profit to network and market, than via current technologies?

As a non-profit director myself, as well as a technology aficionado, I was honored to provide a few tips that would ensure success if acted upon in the early stages of a non-profit launch, but especially when considered on a consistent basis – regardless of the age of your non-profit. I touched on hardware, software, social media, and advanced tech-based business tools for marketing your cause more effectively.

Based on the response and engagement it was well received, so although I'll go ahead and tell you the answer is TRUE, there is a link between technology, non-profits, and network marketing, I will take it one step further and share with you Part 1 of my presentation slides and notes — for FREE! =)

That's right, I have an unabridged version of my notes in PDF format to give you so that you can see for yourself how the truth about this link can help you advance your cause.

There is one catch! To ease getting this into your hands, you must request to join a brief webinar on Part 2 of my presentation (yes, also FREE) which shares a fundraiser program that is bringing thousands of dollars into non-profit organizations all over the USA and Canada! (And YES, any involvement in the fundraiser is also absolutely FREE – ALWAYS – NO QUOTAS!)

So, when you request Part 2 at the web page below, you will be emailed a link for downloading my notes.

Go to http://jonlonon.com/raisemorefunds to request Part 2 of my presentation and get your free PDF copy of Part 1!

I hope it will help you grow your non-profit and fulfill your mission!
