Reflecting On 2021 

For all of us here at Raintree, the theme for 2021 was perseverance. As we started the year continuing to battle COVID, making decisions on vaccinations, travel and social gatherings, we were challenged to be good citizens. For many of us that meant masking, social distancing, waiting anxiously for COVID test results and for some, attending funerals.  

While this continued to wear down our hearts and minds throughout the year, nobody was prepared for the ultimate challenge that we faced together - losing our founder and my husband, Richard Welty. The devastating manner in which we lost him had a profound impact on us all.  

However, throughout this loss, my guiding light was Richard’s constant and persistent focus on the wellbeing of our clients, employees and product. Even up to the night prior to his passing, we discussed how to deliver better training, how we could provide better revenue cycle management services and our planned expansion with the conference center. He truly and deeply wanted a brighter future for us all.

The basic function of our lungs is fairly simple: take in oxygen from the air and release it into the bloodstream. During a normal day, the average person breathes nearly 25,000 times, but for those suffering with lung disease, drawing those breaths can be difficult. Unfortunately, lung conditions are a common problem, so much so that the World Health Organization estimates seven percent of all deaths worldwide are due to chronic respiratory issues. That's why raising awareness of the prevalence of pulmonology helps people understand how to prevent these diseases and live healthier lives.

Every healthcare organization should leverage technology-enabled solutions in order to effectively handle the unique complexities of day-to-day clinical tasks as well as maximize security, promote engagement and optimize efficiencies.

Still, one question is especially prominent: where are we now and when will this end? While the answer is unprecedented, we can expect healthcare to continue evolving with tools like telehealth and remote patient monitoring. Click here to read more about how COVID has redefined engagement.
