  • With the advent of proprietary video calling services like Apple's FaceTime, Microsoft Skype and Google Hangouts, more people are adopting video calling in their personal lives. But they're quickly discovering that these "free apps" often aren't good enough for business! Discover why all HD video conferencing is NOT created equal. Industry expert and video evangelist Simon Dudley shares his insights on this webinar recording.

    Topics discussed in this webinar include:
    - Are Skype and Google Hangouts opposite ends of the same problem -
    - Why is this presentation not a video conference
    - What matters about human connections
    - The power of Metcalfe’s Law – The utility of a network increases at the square of the number of nodes within it
    - A quick comparison of Skype and Hangouts
    - Where all these different technologies fit
    - Why all solutions are not the same
    - Who really should be scared of Skype and Hangouts
    - Considerations when thinking of this technology
    - The future of video communications

    Video communications technology need to be above a certain subjective level of quality before it can actually be considered a useful replacement to meeting people in person. Skype and Hangouts are valuable tools, but fulfill a different role than what Lifesize is meant for.

    For the ultimate quality of experience, use professional grade video conferencing. If you want to disseminate data to large groups with limited interaction, Skype and Google Hangouts can work.

  • The NHS Cost Recovery Team is leading work to improve systems for identifying and charging overseas visitors and migrants who use the NHS. This programme of work, though led by the Department, is being co produced with delivery partners in NHS England and the wider NHS, the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), the Home Office and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
    We aim to support and reinforce the principle of fairness by ensuring that everyone who can should contribute to the cost of the NHS.

    To support the recovery of costs from chargeable non-EEA visitors and migrants (i.e. patients who are charged directly) we will be introducing a new mechanism in April 2015 (subject to Parliament). It will share the risk of unpaid debt to provide a direct financial incentive to encourage trusts to invest in identification and cost recovery processes. This will deliver a major step change in behaviour and process.
  • With the US and other nations on high alert for anyone running a fever (AKA: "presenting symptoms"), many healthcare facilities are merging electronic health record (EHR) systems with travel history, looking to "flag" patients who might be at risk.

    - How does this information impact medical personnel workflow?
    - How is the "mashup" of this information impacting privacy and security concerns?
    - Should this information be shared if collected (and with whom)?
    - Are these travel and EHR systems up to the task?

    Join (ISC)² and several healthcare infosecurity practitioners on February 5, 2015 at 1:00pm as we discuss this hot button topic.
  • Financial services firms are facing a rapidly changing and evolving set of business challenges such as the rise of APIs and apps, the battle over mobile services and the increasing complexity of omni-channel delivery. In an era where digital innovations are used widely by consumers and have come to be expected, there is a greater push for financial institutions to deliver a highly personalized and convenient experience that stretches across mobile, social, and digital channels. Traditional “brick and mortar” financial institutions struggle to keep up with the pace of innovation, held back by massive investments in physical locations, legacy technology, and large employee bases.

    Join us as we discuss how organizations can taking a holistic view toward digital transformation across APIs and apps, mobile services, and omni-channel delivery have an opportunity to optimize their innovation initiatives across the organization.

    Get the answers to these questions:
    - What are the key challenges compelling firms to undertake digital transformation initiatives?
    - How can financial institutions shorten deployment cycles, save costs, and improve ROI of digital projects?
    - How does a two-speed approach to digital transformation ensure security, reliability and control for systems of record while offering an agility layer for innovation projects?
  • COPD is a widespread, costly and largely preventable condition which affects over 300 million people worldwide and is recognised as the ‘third-leading’ cause of death in most countries. Adherence rates among patients with the condition are seen to be low, despite evidence that shows appropriate use of medication and sensible lifestyle changes can reduce mortality by 60% and hospital admissions by as much as 42%.

    Given the proven increase in quality of life when adherence occurs, and yet the persistence of non-adherence globally, there is clearly a disconnect. So why is poor self-management so prevalent and what can we do about it?

    In conjunction with self-management and behavioural change specialists Atlantis Healthcare, we present a multi-stakeholder webinar and debate, which will combine real world patient needs with expertise from healthcare, pharma and patient advocates to look at the challenges to successful self-management/adherence and ascertain what the industry can do to better support patients in achieving optimum outcomes.

    The webinar is comprised of 15 minutes of presentation and 40 minutes of live debate - which you can participate in, sending questions to the panel.

    A live tweetchat (#rwCOPD) will follow the webinar, enabling full interaction across all stakeholders to further delve into this topic and explore some of the issues and solutions raised during the webcast.

    This is the second webinar within the Patient Insights Summarized series.

  • Abstract:
    There is a great interest in application of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) in cell therapy and tissue engineering due to their self-renewal, multilineage differentiation, immunomodulation, and trophic potential. One of the challenges faced in the clinical application of hMSCs is the need for efficient expansion of these cells in vitro without altering their capacity. In particular serum free mammalian cell culture media require optimization of the expansion protocols as subtle changes in the routine handling can have significant impact to the cells potential. This seminar will cover the variables that can influence the desired regenerative and differentiation properties including medium selection, vessel surface treatment, impact of the cell source, seeding density, and discuss how users can select the correct conditions for optimized growth and functionality.

  • It's been said that defensive driving is about "driving for the other cars on the road." The same can be said for setting your organization's security strategy and "to think like your enemy". It's a sound practice which focuses on infosecurity practitioners putting themselves in the shoes of their attackers and anticipating where the next threat may be coming from.
