My first post for Volano (or any blog for that matter) was about Office Space. Rod and I have been looking for space for about a year now and we have finally, yes finally signed a lease. The building is two blocks south of where we currently are, which makes moving not so bad as long as we can roll the server rack down the street.
We are moving between May 1st and May 15th and there are a lot of things to get lined up before then: paint colors, business cards, phone and internet switch over, how to move the bar and should we stock it differently in the new space. Many important things.
Our new space is on the 8th floor of the Exchange building and the landlord who is also in the building is the AIM Institute. AIM has been great to work with so far and should be a thousand times better than a random from Alaska (nothing against Alaskans, just out-of-town developers).

The undertaking was large enough, so our team agreed it would be ideal to talk with […]

Wait. What’s the problem again? Several years ago I was working in Healthcare for a tech startup. At the time, healthcare systems could not bill patients until a chart was signed off and locked by a provider (MD, PA, or NP).
