As we round the last corner of 2016, end-of-the-year holidays upon us, we are reminded of the pervasiveness of technology in our lives. Quick personal reflection will surely confirm that your holiday shopping, travel, and entertainment are all thoroughly driven and sculpted by tech. Yes, there’s an app for (all!) that.

Alongside the holiday color and buzz there is, importantly, ample opportunity for reflection and gratitude. And certainly some of the folks who are most deserving of our thanks are the healthcare professionals all around us.

Healthcare professionals understand the great value of our dependence on technology; our medical devices, electronic health and medical records, and medical research programs are core examples of this. These professionals further understand that our dependence on digital systems demands that those systems meet the highest standards of quality and reliability. In this context system performance is mission-critical because the stakes are so very high: patients and their families place great trust in healthcare providers, and healthcare providers rely upon technologies to deliver life-improving and life-saving services.

TestPlant is proud to support and equip our customers across several healthcare initiatives. We are truly grateful for your excellent work, and we remain eager to help you in your mission to improve lives and create healthier communities.

So this holiday season, here’s to all our health, and to the great people and systems that support it!
