  • Don’t Buy the Healthcare IT “Snake Oil”! Don’t Buy the Healthcare IT “Snake Oil”! Marion Jenkins, Healthcare Technology Partners Aug 25 2016 7:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Recently the president of the American Medical Association referred to healthcare IT as the “snake oil” of the 21st century. He referenced ineffective electronic health records, an explosion of direct-to-consumer digital health products, and apps of mixed quality.

    In this webinar, leading healthcare expert, Marion Jenkins, will cover the major causes of this sorry state of affairs, and discuss how healthcare technologies can actually help medical practices deliver better patient care.

    Major areas to be covered:

    1.Who is to blame? There is plenty to go around. Physicians? Healthcare IT vendors? The government? The solution must get past blame and address solutions.

    2.How can clinical users and executives “break through” the logjam of sub-optimal IT systems, poor implementation, and ineffective workflows?

    3.Is it possible to utilize new technologies to improve patient care, without breaking the bank and further hurting the clinician/patient experience?

    4.What are the necessary changes that enable technology to actually provide benefit in a healthcare setting?

  • Measuring the cost of the right interventions in diabetes Measuring the cost of the right interventions in diabetes John Grumitt, IDF/Diabetes UK, Prof Michael Trenell, Newcastle University, Dr Phil McEwan Sep 8 2016 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Diabetes is one of the most prevalent and most costly conditions worldwide – with a prevalence equating to 8.5% of the global population. Due to the complex nature of diabetes, with numerous co-morbidities and its asymptomatic nature, accurately modelling and therefore discerning which interventions are most effective, in terms of cost and patient impact is an equally complicated process.

    This webinar will explore the patient pathway and how effective modelling – when pharma works together with healthcare stakeholders – can improve outcomes for both patients and the healthcare system as a whole.

  • Transforming brain radiosurgery: clinical application of a novel tool Transforming brain radiosurgery: clinical application of a novel tool Dr Dheerendra Prasad MD, MCh, FACRO, medical director, radiation medicine, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, New York Sep 9 2016 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Medical doctor Dheerandra Prasad talks about clinical prospects and his clinical experience of the Leksell Gamma Knife® Icon™ for precise, frameless and frame-based stereotactic radiosurgery of the brain.

    Leksell Gamma Knife Icon combines the unprecedented accuracy of Gamma Knife with integrated immobilization, workflow and imaging technologies to provide even greater clinical flexibility for brain radiosurgery. This is due to a number of advancements, including on-board cone beam computer tomography, a thermoplastic mask system and an infrared-based high-definition motion-management system for patient tracking during treatment, which provide the opportunity to perform frameless and fractionated radiosurgery, as well as frame-based and single-session treatments, and to perform online adaptive planning.

    Based on his experience as a radiation oncologist and a neurosurgeon, Dr Prasad discusses how these novel features of Gamma Knife Icon have opened up the possibility of extending Gamma Knife treatment to more patients and new indications. He will explain how the on-board CBCT imaging capabilities of Gamma Knife Icon have improved imaging workflows for both frame-based and frameless treatments at his clinic, and how the thermoplastic mask system has enabled him to treat targets outside the range of frame fixation. He also will describe how the ability to fractionate treatments has allowed him to expand his case mix, for example to patients with tumours that are situated close to critical structures, allowing such patients to benefit from the superior dosimetry of Gamma Knife.

    Drawing from individual case studies and his personal experience, Dr Prasad will illustrate how Leksell Gamma Knife Icon is a valuable and flexible tool for brain radiosurgery and its role alongside linac-based stereotactic radiotherapy in today’s radiation oncology centres.

  • Genome Pricing Milestone Warrants New Strategic Positions for Service Providers Genome Pricing Milestone Warrants New Strategic Positions for Service Providers Christi Bird, Senior Industry Analyst Sep 15 2016 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Frost & Sullivan predicts the $100 genome will be achieved by 2024 should new technology launches continue at the current pace. This milestone will disrupt the services space both positively and negatively, as some customers will opt to bring sequencing in-house at that price point, while others that continue to outsource will greatly expand their large-scale sequencing projects. A new business model of answer-based sequencing services is likely to emerge in 10 years.

  • Quantitative Image Analysis and Emerging Applications on the ImageStream Quantitative Image Analysis and Emerging Applications on the ImageStream Brian Hall, Senior Scientist at Millipore Sigma Sep 21 2016 4:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The ImageStream is a multispectral imaging flow cytometer that generates high resolution images of cells at a rate of 1000’s of cells per second. This allows for the rapid acquisition of tens of thousands of images per sample. Using the IDEAS image analysis software, the system calculates features based not only on fluorescence intensity but the morphology of that fluorescence as well. With this novel approach the ImageStream is able to seamlessly combine the quantitative power of flow cytometry with the high content information associated with microscopy. The system can collect data on a wide range of applications including nuclear localization during a signal transduction cascade, measuring colocalization of two probes, or quantify features on the phagocytosed particles in macrophages.
  • The Fallacy of Using IOPS to Measure I/O Performance The Fallacy of Using IOPS to Measure I/O Performance Sushant Rao, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Sep 21 2016 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit. So, companies are desperately trying to improve their I/O performance.

    This brings up the question of what measure should IT departments use to evaluate storage products’ performance.

    The most common performance measurement is IOPS. But, is this the best metric? IOPS is dependent on a number of issues including, the type of workload being simulated, read/write percentages, sequent/random percentages and block size.

    Most importantly, IOPS doesn’t indicate the response time.

    So, what metric should be used to measure I/O performance?

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss Latency Curves, which show the response time the application sees as the storage product deals with more and more I/O (measured by IOPS). This measure will help you understand why some storage products can claim high number of IOPS but still perform poorly when they run into peak demand.
  • Pediatric Cancer and IHC Pediatric Cancer and IHC Jeff Gordon, Director of OEM Sales, Cell Marque Corporation Sep 28 2016 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Childhood cancer and pediatric cancer are general terms used to describe a wide range of neoplasms found in children and teenagers. Occurring in approximately 1 in 300 people under the age of 20, compared to 1 in 6 adults, pediatric cancers are more rare than adult cancers. Because less is known about pediatric cancers, diagnosis can be quite challenging for pathologists.

    This presentation covers the basic science, as well as facts and statistics about pediatric cancer. We will discuss how the utility of immunohistochemical testing along with the application of novel antibodies can contribute to accurate diagnosis and survival rates of pediatric cancer patients.
  • Understanding the Impact of GDPR on the Public Sector Understanding the Impact of GDPR on the Public Sector Andrew Joss – Head of Industry Consulting, EMEA Oct 6 2016 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins

Citizens will have significantly more rights and powers on how their data is used and consumed, with large fines available for any breaches of the regulation.

    Join this webinar to understand:

    - What GDPR is and what it means to Public Sector bodies
    - The potential impact of Brexit
    - The range of data challenges and opportunities the new regulation will create
    - What data capabilities agencies will need to consider
    - Learn what best practice approaches commercial organisations are already taking to ensure timely compliance
