VGM's Fourth Business Playbook Is Ready for You NOW

Published in Member Communities on December 26, 2018

By Lindy Zars, Director of Marketing Strategy & Communication, VGM & Associates

We are excited to launch Technology Snapshots: Innovative Solutions for the Future. This is the fourth edition in a series of comprehensive resources that highlight issues, trends, and opportunities facing the durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) community in the months and years to come.

As we bring the year to a close and enter a brand new year, we wanted to provide our valued members with a playbook chock full of trending technology topics and solutions for your business. You will see technology at the top of VGM’s list of priorities for you as it continues to evolve, new products continue to hit the market, and we all try to better understand how everything fits together in this DMEPOS technology ecosystem.

We called on our in-house thought leaders and our vast network of experts in the technology space to build the content for the 26-page resource. Seven of the 11 articles were written by VGM’s technology partners. From compliance to workflow to cybersecurity to the internet of things (IoT), you will find a comprehensive playbook to help you with all things related to your business from a technology standpoint.

Our relationship with our vendor partners is more than connecting our membership to their solutions. Together we strive to provide the resources, tools, and expertise to truly help providers understand the issues, trends, and opportunities facing the DMEPOS community for months, and even years, to come. This playbook certainly accomplishes that.

Technology Snapshots: Innovative Solutions for the Future is available online at playbook.vgm.com and is free to VGM members and vendor partners. For more information about VGM, visit www.vgm.com.
