Shocking Statistics

Tis' the season to plan costumes, shop for candy, watch horror movies, jaunt through the local haunted house and simply get your scare gene tickled. In keeping with that theme, let's talk statistics, frightening stats that make you shutter!

It’s that time again - Spring Time.  Time to open the windows and breathe in the fresh air!

Who Do You Trust?

In our last blog we discussed “Buyers’ Remorse” and how making an educated purchasing decision helps one avoid stepping on landmines. Nowadays, we have the world at our fingertips to aid in our research. Google has fundamentally changed how we gather information and as a result we use the research we find online to guide our decisions.

 Ever noticed the different types of alarms in a hospital? Nurses and clinicians are exposed to thousands of alerts and alarms every day from a variety of systems. Over time, it is not surprising they get immune to the lights and sounds, causing them to easily ignore alarms instead of responding to their urgent call for action. Seem impossible? This seemingly impossibility has a name, it is called alarm fatigue. Alarm fatigue is a term that describes the mindset once nuisance alarms start getting ignored. Nuisance alarms are not to be confused with false alarms. 

Not So Bitter

September 24, 2018

“Wanna try?” My dad asked, extending his coffee mug my direction. I’d always watch my dad with unapologetic admiration as he sipped his cup of Yuban Gold. “What a man,” I thought privately. He had whiskers, watched the news, and drank his coffee black. A man I wanted to be.

Work and Ethics

June 28, 2018

A new family moved in next door this Spring.  Early on I met Dad and a short while later I met Mom and the boys.  Over the next few weeks I observed a family that was a very industrious team. They immediately got to work cleaning up last year’s leaves, mowing grass, trimming shrubs and opening the swimming pool, a major task in itself.  

Do You Remember?

To share the past 30 years and continue celebrating our 30th anniversary with you, I developed a timeline that walks not only through IMS’s past 30 years but also sprinkles in some pop culture happenings along the way.

Celebrating 30 Years...

February 12, 2018

It is hard for me to believe but just this week Innovative Medical Systems (IMS) is celebrating its thirty year anniversary, as we officially opened the doors in February of 1988.  Boy, have a lot of things happened in those thirty years.  My three children, who were all under 8 years old at the time are now grown and we have been blessed with three grandchildren and another on the way.  In that time IMS has grown from 3 to 51 employees.   IMS started by marketing in the State of Michigan and today are doing business to one level or another in about half of the 50 United States.  Five years ago we moved into our fifth location and the first purpose built building.  Over those 30 years, IMS has been blessed with good times and we have weathered some bad times but overall we’ve seen 30 years of success and growth, more than I ever dreamed.

Doing Business Differently - Culture, Change and Criticism

January 10, 2017

As the Marketing Communications Specialist, I could blog about what we do; We are a systems integrator for complex hardware and software solutions before, during and after the sale. But that does not convey WHO Innovative Medical Systems (IMS) is nor does it say WHY we are different and WHY it matters.        When I walked through the doors at IMS in June, like any new job, I had no idea what to expect about the culture, my boss, co-workers and more importantly would I find the work rewarding and challenging? What was evident on day one was that IMS was different.  Different in a way I have never experienced before in my 20+ working years. It starts with the IMS culture, how they approach business, their extensive product knowledge and the level of commitment they show their customers, partners and employees.  It is evident they do not take relationships for granted.
