How Healthcare Technology Can Impact Operations

This month, our COO Melissa Powell writes for Healthcare IT Today,

“More and more, best practices in the business world are intruding into the healthcare industry, which should come as no surprise, given that many of the issues are the same. How can resources best be allocated? How can the customer (or patient) experience be maximized? And how can efficiency be improved?”

The Allure Group celebrates Nurses Week 2022

The Allure Group celebrated Nurses Week this month and was able to publicly recognize many of our nurses and the hard work and dedication that they give our residents and patients all year!

See the spotlight series below that we put together to honor some of our nurses across all of our centers:

Please join us in recognizing Allure’s Chief Clinical Officer, Faina Kaganov. Faina’s extensive background in cardiac ICU and critical care nursing has made her a shining example to the clinical staff that she leads at Allure. Faina also proudly served as a Director of Nursing herself for many years prior to joining Allure. Thank you to Faina for her tireless commitment to not just our patients, but our nursing teams as well!

Our next Nurses Week 2022 honoree is The Allure Group’s VP of Clinical Reimbursement, Sofia Yakubova, RN RAC-CT. Sofia is a true testament of the Allure ambition, starting her career as a Unit RN prior to being promoted to Nursing Supervisor. After several years, Sofia moved into the MDS department where she soon became a Director before ultimately ascending to her current role as the organization’s VP of Clinical Reimbursement. Please join us in saluting Sofia for all that she does for Allure!

What’s Next for Telehealth

This month, Joel Landau writes in Healthcare Business Today, “What’s Next for Telehealth”

“Just as many of us began working from home at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a significant number of people also nixed in-person doctors’ appointments in favor of telehealth consultations with their physicians. While virtual care was originally conceived as a low-cost means to avoid expensive emergency room or urgent care visits for basic ailments such as colds, flu, and rashes, during the COVID-19 shutdown, doctors began using telehealth to see patients remotely for a variety of conditions.”

National Administrative Professionals Day

We celebrated National Administrative Professional’s Day this month. Behind every successful facility is a hardworking and dedicated administrative team. Thank you to our Allure Group teams for keeping our facilities running smoothly and efficiently!

Big Tech’s incursion into healthcare: What does it all mean?

This month, Joel Landau discusses how healthcare technology can humanize medicine in his latest piece in Business Journals Leadership Trust.

“Technology is transforming the healthcare industry, whether through the use of wearable devices that allow healthcare providers to monitor patients’ conditions or the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud platforms to provide healthcare companies with better data analytics.

So-called Big Tech is focusing on innovations in digital health to improve individuals’ health and wellness in a myriad of ways: by preventing disease, allowing patients to monitor and manage chronic conditions — thus tailoring medicine more specific to their needs — and ultimately lowering the cost of providing healthcare. During COVID19-related shutdowns, virtual healthcare, or telehealth, became a highly effective way for individuals to access physicians and other healthcare professionals — and the trend continues.”

How Healthcare Technology Can (Believe it or Not) Humanize Medicine

This month, Joel Landau discusses how healthcare technology can humanize medicine in his latest piece in Newsweek,

“On its face, it admittedly sounds incongruous: Healthcare technology can humanize medical care? But how?

Wouldn’t the opposite be true? Wouldn’t tech’s incursion into this sector make medicine more impersonal? Wouldn’t the use of such things as telehealth platforms, which have become more prevalent during the pandemic, put more distance between the provider and patient than ever before?

Not really. The argument now is that technology allows for an ever greater connection—a connection that is constant and consistent.

Blockchain is making its presence felt in healthcare

In his most recent piece, our Founder and President Joel Landau writes for New York Business Journals,

“Blockchain is, on a far larger scale, a tool that helps to deal with the massive amount of patient data circulating within and among healthcare facilities: How can it be used to a provider’s best advantage? How can it be stored, analyzed, interpreted and shared so that it can ensure the best possible outcomes?

That is an ongoing challenge, as healthcare information systems are notoriously fragmented.”

Celebrating our Doctors

The Allure Group wished to recognize and celebrate outstanding medical professionals, so we invited members of the Brooklyn community to nominate their doctors for recognition.

Participants submitted letters expressing their appreciation for all that their physician had done for them, or to a special senior in their life. Many included heartwarming stories of the doctors’ outstanding dedication. We created beautiful gift packages for each doctor and included the letters their patients had sent. We delivered the packages earlier this month, and the doctors were deeply touched by this show of gratitude.

At The Allure Group, we know firsthand the hard work involved in providing outstanding care, and we are committed to continue playing a role in promoting the interests of the community as we work together towards outstanding healthcare for everyone.
