  • Not Good Enough: The Need for a Patient-Focused Content Strategy
    Not Good Enough: The Need for a Patient-Focused Content Strategy Paul Perrotta and Scott Abel Recorded: May 17 2018 62 mins
    Being a patient in need of life-saving medical treatment can be cripplingly frightening—even the bravest humans often find their nerves of steel are no match for fear of invasive surgery or therapy for serious illnesses like heart disease or cancer. Many patients find themselves trapped on an anxiety-ridden ride made worse by the presence of poorly designed, ambiguous, frustrating and confusing healthcare content. Confusing jargon, misplaced focus, and a lack of empathy are common problems with information provided to patients during their journey toward healthfulness. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

    Join Paul Perrotta for a lively discussion with Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, about his recent battle with brain cancer. Scott will discuss the content challenges he discovered while attempting to navigate the disorganized, inconsistent, and often less-than-useful healthcare content provided to him by hospitals, doctors, laboratories, transporters, specialists, nurses, medical device companies, technicians, pharmacies, and insurance providers.

    We’ll hear Scott’s first-hand account of his experiences navigating brain surgery and cancer treatments and learn how adopting a patient-focused content strategy may help professional communicators improve healthcare information provided to those who need it. Come prepared to ask questions of Scott.

    One lucky attendee will win a free pass to Information Development World conference, November 27-29, 2018, in Menlo Park, CA. The theme of the conference is “Creating a Modern Online Technical Resource Center.”

  • Automatic Visualization with Driverless AI
    Automatic Visualization with Driverless AI Leland Wilkinson Recorded: May 14 2018 57 mins
    We wish to read datasets (text, logs, relational tables, hierarchies, streams, images, ...) and display interesting aspects of their content. The design to do this rests on the grammar of graphics, scagnostics, and a modeler based on the logic of statistical analysis. We distinguish an automatic visualization system (AVS) from an automated visualization system. The former automatically makes decisions about what is to be visualized. The latter is a programming system for automating the production of charts, graphs and visualizations. An AVS is designed to provide a first glance at data before modeling and analysis are done. AVS is designed to protect researchers from ignoring missing data, outliers, miscodes and other anomalies that can violate statistical assumptions or otherwise jeopardize the validity of models. This webinar will cover the theory and operation of the AutoViz implementation of AVS inside Driverless AI.

    Leland's Bio:
    Leland Wilkinson is Chief Scientist at H2O and Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois Chicago. He received an A.B. degree from Harvard in 1966, an S.T.B. degree from Harvard Divinity School in 1969, and a Ph.D. from Yale in 1975. Wilkinson wrote the SYSTAT statistical package and founded SYSTAT Inc. in 1984. After the company grew to 50 employees, he sold SYSTAT to SPSS in 1994 and worked there for ten years on research and development of visualization systems. Wilkinson subsequently worked at Skytree and Tableau before joining H2O.

    With the Internet of Things and applications such as wearable personal health trackers, we are becoming more the center of our active care management. The issues of privacy and security are foundational to the safety of our healthcare data.

    What is the possible function of blockchain, in our healthcare industry given the numerous players such as insurance, physicians, pharmaceuticals, researchers and above all the patient where transactions such as medical care records; drug trial results may be transacted immutably on a public ledger or perhaps a ledger that is hybrid, public-private? The speaker will articulate blockchain use cases that may be considered for application in the healthcare industry.

    There is work in progress in this space of healthcare and blockchain, however, what must be pivotal in the discussion is that the patient remain the center of this dynamically changing universe. Education will be critical and an opportunity for this industry!

    The key takeaways from this webinar are:
    1.Assess Blockchain and its application in the healthcare industry;
    2.Understand the polarity between regulation-privacy-security and transparency;
    3.Call to action re: Education for all players especially the patient

  • How smart manufacturing is digitally redefining the automotive industry
    How smart manufacturing is digitally redefining the automotive industry Paul Mairl, Chief Digital Officer at GKN Metallurgy Jun 6 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In an age where technology and cars have never been more intertwined, experts believe the automotive companies that are leaders in the smart manufacturing race will be the ones who benefit from competitive advantages in the future. A recent survey of automotive companies by Capgemini’s Digital Transformation Institute revealed that 49% of automotive companies have invested over $250mn in smart factory innovation.

    The ability to integrate currently siloed systems throughout manufacturing processes with smart manufacturing techniques is clearly a move in the right direction. And of course, the integration isn’t just about software and connectivity tools, it's about making better business decisions by using data to solve problems before they happen.

    However, the reality of integrating such innovative processes for many companies can be challenging—especially for large organisations. So how can you integrate smart manufacturing techniques, and what are the short, and long-term benefits of doing so?

    PatSnap is pleased to welcome Paul Mairl, Chief Digital Officer at GKN Metallurgy, to explore the barriers, and techniques of successfully integrating smart manufacturing processes into your business. Paul has worked in various roles within GKN for over 25 years and is now responsible for setting up GKN Metallurgy’s digital system in line with Industry 4.0.

  • Powering Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, and MongoDB
    Powering Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, and MongoDB Andrew Morgan Jun 7 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Organizations are building their applications around microservice architectures because of the flexibility, speed of delivery, and maintainability they deliver.

    Want to try out MongoDB on your laptop? Execute a single command and you have a lightweight, self-contained sandbox; another command removes all trace when you're done. Replicate your complete application for your development, test, operations, and support teams.

    This session introduces you to technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, & Kafka, which are driving the microservices revolution. Learn about containers and orchestration – and most importantly, how to exploit them for stateful services such as MongoDB.

    In this session, you will learn:

    - Why organizations are choosing to use microservice architectures, what benefits they deliver, and when they should - or shouldn't - be used.
    - Technologies that are used to build microservices – including containers, orchestration and messaging systems.
    - Why MongoDB is a good fit for microservices and what special steps need to be taken to make them work well together.
