Take a moment while enjoying the long weekend with friends and family to honor military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. We suggest flying the American flag to show your support, here are 10 quick rules for doing it with respect and gratitude...
10 Rules for flying the American Flag:
1.) The U.S. flag should always be flown above any other flag and should be larger than any other flag in a display.
2.) The flag should always be at full mast unless it's at half staff. When half staff is called for, the flag should be briefly raised to full staff and then lowered to the half staff position. On lowering, it should be raised to full staff briefly and then lowered completely. On Memorial Day, the flag is at half staff from sunup until noon and then at full staff until sundown.
3.) The flag should never be flown at night unless it's lit.
4.) The flag should never be allowed to touch the ground.
5.) When necessary, flag care such as flag cleaning or mending should be performed.
6.) If the flag becomes worn or faded beyond repair, it should be destroyed by burning in a respectful manner. American Legion, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts regularly provide dignified flag burning ceremonies, often on Flag Day (June 14).
7.) A flag should always be displayed with the union (blue star field) at the top, whether the flag is vertical or horizontal with the field to the observer's left. The only time it should be flown upside down is as a sign of distress.
8.) The flag should only be used as a drape or decoration on a casket with the union at the top left shoulder of the deceased.
9.) The American flag should always be displayed to the center or right of the bearer or speaker.
10.) When raising the flag, it should be raised briskly, and upon lowering it, should be lowered slowly.
We all face obstacles. Whether physical, spiritual, emotional or financial, we are all working to overcome a roadblock ahead of us.

Free Webinar: Using Automation to Optimize Healthcare Workflow courtesy of HIMSS Arizona Chapter - Wednesday, March 10th at Noon (MST)
In the face of rising healthcare costs, hospitals are looking for innovative ways to drive efficiency and reduce waste. Learn how new technology can automate administrative tasks like form completion, medical record transfer and claim submission. Workflow automation reduces cost and inefficiency by eliminating the need to manually open documents, search for required fields, and hand-key patient data. Instead, auto-indexing technology translates and pre-populates incoming data directly into the patient record.

Health systems are redefining their path to recovery by establishing Hospital at Home programs that provide pre-hospitalization, acute, post-acute and ambulatory care in a patient’s home - meaning care delivery is no longer confined to medical buildings or office hours. This shift requires various assets in a health system’s care ecosystem to align in new and meaningful ways. Join us to hear one organization's story about how to drive this important care transformation work.
