January is the month for fresh starts and challenging resolutions, and for 2020, our team has laid out an ambitious goal: When the Oregon Business Journal releases its 2020 ranking of Oregon’s best midsized companies to work for, we want to be in the No. 1 spot. For the last five years, TZ Medical has been rising steadily up the list, which splits 300 companies by size and then ranks them annually according to their company culture. The rankings are determined based on anonymous employee surveys, so it’s the satisfaction of our staff that has pushed us up the midsized company list from No. 62 five years ago to No. 2 in 2019. We’re incredibly proud of our company culture and have worked hard to create the positive, open, team-oriented environment that has propelled us into the No. 2 spot. That said, we know that we can do better. There are always additional steps to take for the health and happiness of our employees, and with that in mind, TZ owner Trent Tribou created the 100 Best Committee last year. In the months since its formation, it has made dozens of employee dreams a reality. “We formed the committee in 2019 with the goal of getting better each year,” Trent explains. “We invited one person from each department within the company to sit on the committee, and in March, we sat down with the entire company and went over the results of a survey we’d sent out asking for suggestions on improvement. Now, the committee meets each month, picks a suggestion or two, and tries to implement them to show teams that we’re listening to them and responding to their needs.” Lindsey Schaefer, a TZ customer service representative who sits on the 100 Best Committee, says those suggestions have run the gamut. These range from TZ Carez volunteer opportunities to team-building events like monthly potlucks, holiday parties, and even a company-wide personality quiz. One of the committee’s most successful innovations was a job shadowing week that gave our employees the opportunity to spend time in other departments.

“We have a long list of suggestions to work with, but we’re invited to talk to our different departments and see what they recommend, whether it’s different snacks in the break room or something more out there. Someone wanted a pajama day and put a suggestion about that in the recommendation box, and we made it happen!” Lindsey says. Thanks to the 100 Best Committee, in the last year, our team has bonded over water balloon fights, egg-and-spoon races, company-wide spirit weeks, and delicious barbecue. “It has been a big hit, especially the monthly potlucks,” Lindsey says. “They bring everyone together to eat, spend time talking, and even swap recipes. One of TZ’s owners, John Lubisich, is a mean grilling machine. He has brisket figured out, and that makes it feel like a big cookout. It’s great to be able to take an hour out of your normal lunch routine and spend it together. I definitely think it has helped boost morale!” We already know that the 100 Best Committee’s endeavors have paid off within the company, but we still hope to see all of their hard work reflected in the Oregon Business Journal rankings this year. Even when we hit No. 1, we’ll keep taking suggestions and laboring to make TZ Medical the best company it can be. If you have any thoughts on how to improve our company culture — or ideas regarding products we should resolve to offer in 2020 — we’d love to hear from you, too!

UNIQUE FOOD TRACKING APPS TO CHECK OUT IN 2020 YOUR DIET’S HIGH-TECH HELPER

If you’re the type to make New Year's resolutions, then there’s a good chance health and fitness goals are among your targets for 2020. According to the New York Post, more than 55% of News Year’s resolutions made by Americans in 2018 were health-related, covering topics like exercising more, losing weight, and eating more nutritious foods. It’s easy to set resolutions, but it’s much harder to keep them. Luckily, we live in an age where high-tech tools are at our fingertips. Having a diet and exercise assistant in your pocket (literally) in the form of a smartphone app can do wonders for staying on track, and these days your options go far beyond one-size-fits-all calorie counters like MyFitnessPal. Here are two apps to check out if you’re hoping to discover a new you this new year. MY MACROS+ Developed by weightlifters, this app is tailor-made for people who have serious fitness goals and want to track their macronutrients (macros) — carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. With more than 1.5 million food items to choose from, a weight-tracking component, and more, My Macros+ covers all

your bases. Reviewers rave about the app’s flexible goal-setting feature, which allows for intermittent fasting, calorie/carbohydrate cycling, and meal plans that include 6–8 meals per day. ATE Ate bills itself as a “visual, mindful, and non-judgmental” food tracking app. Unlike most options on the market, Ate focuses on feelings rather than numbers. Instead of counting calories, its users snap photos of their meals and input why they ate — whether they were hungry, stressed, or socializing — and how the meal made them feel. It’s an ideal strategy for those worried that too much data could trigger an obsession or disordered eating. Once you find a food tracking app you like, try pairing it with other tools that can help you meet your goals. Whether you need help shopping for healthier foods, making smart choices when eating out, or finding nutritious recipes with ingredients you have at home, there’s an app for that. Just pull up your phone’s app store and start searching!

TZ’S TEAM PLAYERS

HOW LESSONS LEARNED FROM SPORTS FORMS OUR COMPANY CULTURE

As you no doubt heard as a child, playing sports provides a plethora of benefits, ranging from better heart health to stronger interpersonal skills. The ability to work well on a team is often cited as the biggest perk of all, and here at TZ Medical, we owe a debt to sports for just that. Many of our employees come from sports backgrounds, and the values they learned in those pursuits have been instrumental in building our cooperative, goal-oriented company culture. “Through sports, I learned that paying attention to detail and active listening are important skills that are exercised daily,” says Dane Strength, a TZ inside sales representative who played football, basketball, and baseball in high school. “But most importantly, sports taught me selflessness and working together with others were the best ways to achieve a common goal.”

learned what it takes to be great, compete, work with a team, have a strong work ethic, be a leader, and not break when things get tough. I also learned that your team is only as strong as your weakest link, so you should build people up rather than tear them down.” Here at TZ, we do our best to encourage those traits and support our employees’ love of the game. We have an office softball team

and hold spirit days where everyone in the company is encouraged to show off their sports gear. Beyond that, our company culture draws inspiration from the best parts of sports culture. “At TZ, everyone takes ownership of their tasks, which allows us to challenge each other to reach our fullest potential and see results,” says Lois Ray, a lacrosse, soccer, basketball, and softball player turned mechanical engineer. Mechanical engineer and former baseball and soccer player Austin Ziegler adds, “Working on multiple projects at a time, I realized time management and leadership are huge. I have to prioritize my projects and trust that my team will complete their jobs to get the task accomplished on time.” Going into this new year, we’re incredibly grateful for all of the team players we have here at TZ Medical. We couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work and play with!

Garrett Bradd, another inside sales rep and basketball player, says, “Through sports, I

FROM CATH LAB TO CARDIOLOGY PRACTICE TZ MEDICAL EXPANDS ITS REACH WITH FULL-SERVICE CARDIAC MONITORING In recent months, TZ Medical has taken a big step: We’ve expanded our products to suit not only cath labs but also cardiology practices. Our hope is that this will allow our innovative technologies to reach more people and increase physician and patient comfort nationwide. Specifically, we’re offering cardiologists a full-service, in-office cardiac monitoring solution that provides the same level of care we’re known for in the cath lab. Our expansion includes three new devices — the Trident Holter Monitor, the Trident Pro 4-in-1 Monitor, and the Trident Holder Patch — all streamlined into a single workflow by the comprehensive, cloud-based platform ClearBeat. The platform can handle your practice's Holter, Extended Holter, Cardiac Event, and Mobile Cardiac Telemetry needs, helping you treat patients quickly, simply, and cost-effectively. The Trident Holter Monitor is designed for use in Holter and Extended Holter, while the Trident Pro 4-in-1 Monitor can be used in Holter, Extended Holter, Event Monitoring, and Mobile Cardiac Telemetry. Both devices offer three channels of ECG data acquired from surface electrodes that can be adhered to the body for up to 30 days of continuous monitoring and capture common arrhythmias with onboard detection algorithms. They also feature internal lithium batteries that can be charged while the devices are in use and onboard diaries with LCD color touch-screen displays for the direct recording of symptomatic events and current activity levels. Rounding out the trio, the Trident Holter Patch is an accurate, reliable, and user-friendly patch monitor designed to provide clear and comprehensive ECG results during Holter and Extended Holter studies. It can record three channels of patient ECG data using a single three-lead electrode patch for up to seven days of continuous recording. The Trident Holter Patch is discreet, comfortable to wear, water-resistant, and fully rechargeable for study durations lasting up to 30 days. Once the study is complete, monitoring data is uploaded via a USB connection, and the device can be restored to default settings for the next patient.
