Health IT

  • The first in a trilogy of webinars focussed on the topic; Unlocking the value; the economic equation and part of the IMS Health Practical Insights series.

    While it remains the gold standard, the feasibility of large scale randomised clinical trials within a pipeline that is ever more focused on niche and personalised medicines is decreasing – particularly in the fields of rare diseases and oncology. Within the changing landscape of drug development, payers need robust evidence in order to accurately assess the value and efficacy of innovative treatments for both smaller patient populations and increasingly expensive medicines. Answering this paradigm is where real world evidence can step in.
    Topics covered include:
    •The HTA landscape – the challenges of assessing rare disease and cancer medicines
    •How regulators consider RWE in HTAs
    •Learnings from best practice in global markets
    •Recent case studies – successes and failures
    •The role of the regulator in the Cancer Drugs Fund
    •How RWE can assist market access
  • Train like you fight. Fight like you train. We could do well to heed this old military axiom and regularly drill for a variety of incident scenarios in the most realistic means as possible. During this (ISC)2 roundtable, we will explore the role of incident management simulation and testing from the world of critical infrastructure and provide some concrete and immediately actionable methods you begin incorporating into your own preparedness program. As the saying goes, “No plan survives first contact with the enemy,” so please join us On February 11, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern in learning how to become a more resilient organization in the face of disaster.

  • The new EPA METHOD 325 for sampling Volatile Organic Compounds from Fugitive and Area Sources was promulgated in September of 2015. The petroleum refineries have 2 years to comply with the new ruling. Benzene emissions are the focus of the new ruling, but other VOC’s can be monitored using the same sampling tube. The air samples are collected using thermal desorption tubes that are deployed along fenceline of the property and remain deployed for 14 days. The samples are collected passively, without the using of an air sampling pump. After sampling the diffusive endcap is replaced with a metal storage cap and sent to a laboratory where they’re analyzed by thermal desorption gas chromatography. This is the first of a two series presentation that focuses on the analysis side of the workflow. It provides users the steps required to comply with the new EPA fence line regulations and what is needed to optimize the method for high sample throughput. Refineries and testing laboratories will benefit by gaining valuable information on the optimum techniques to perform this method and what it takes to comply. An introduction to the theory and operation of thermal desorption will also be included.
  • Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) forms part of the NHS Five Year Forward View and is a joint initiative with the Local Government Association, ADASS and Think Local, Act Personal.

    IPC aims to give people with complex needs, more choice and control over their care; giving a better quality of life, fewer crises and an enhanced quality of life. This will entail a shift in control of resources with the option of a personal budget covering an agreed range of services spanning health, social care and education where applicable.

    IPC builds upon the work done within Personal Health Budgets, Personal Budgets for Social Care and the SEND reforms to develop a more coherent and wider ranging offer for the following groups:
    •Children and young people with complex needs
    •People with long term conditions who have complex needs
    •People with learning disabilities with high support needs
    •People with significant mental health problems.

    IPC also links with, and supports, work on the Better Care Fund, expanding Personal Health Budgets, New Models of Care, Transforming Care and many other systems change programmes.

    The webinar will give an overview of what IPC is and how it fits with current organisational and national priorities.

    Topics covered will include:
    •What is Integrated Personal Commissioning?
    •How IPC fits within the commissioning framework
    •The link with the 2016/17 Planning Guidance

  • According to the European Commission and NIHR Clinical Research Network, between 2007 and 2011, delays for launching clinical trials rose by 90%. And with approximately one third of the clinical trial timeline spent in patient recruitment, delays in launching clinical trials will increase costs and drain resources.

    As our industry moves to become fully and demonstrably patient centric, there is much focus on the materials and media which are often the key liaison with the patient populous. As important as what we are saying and where these conversations are taking place may be, it is only part of the conundrum. Developing, maintaining and managing content is a continuous challenge, made all the more taxing not only by strict internal deadlines but the cultural, linguistic and regulatory challenges that go hand in hand with managing global communications.

    Working with our expert partner SDL , we present a live webinar which will deliver insight and guidance on this topic, look in depth at one of the more traditional areas of patient liaison – trial recruitment – and bring you advice from the ‘frontline’ on what works in tackling these content challenges.

    On this latest live webinar, we’ll be discussing:
    •How to develop patient-centric recruitment content that REALLY communicates
    •Best practices of how to handle the linguistic, cultural and regulatory challenges often faced with creating multilingual patient-centric content
    •How simple content management best practices can help you become more patient centric with your content
    •Recent case studies: we’ll be discussing recent successes of global pharmaceutical businesses that have optimised and streamlined recruitment processes with relevant, accurate content development in the right language.
  • By now you've probably heard about new ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypts your data and demands payment to unlock it. These threats are delivered via malicious email attachments or websites, and once they execute and connect to an external command and control server, they start to encrypt files throughout your network. Therefore, spotting infections quickly can limit the damage.

    AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the hackers’ command and control server. How does it all work? Join us for a live demo that will show how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean up time by limiting the damage from the attack.
    You'll learn:
    How AlienVault USM detects communications with the command and control server
    How the behavior is correlated with other signs of trouble to alert you of the threat
    Immediate steps you need to take to stop the threat and limit the damage

  • This webinar will review most significative challenges Nuclear Medicine physicians find in early diagnosis of neurological diseases using Positron Emission Tomography. Imaging quantification offers the possibility to identify subtle features unnoticed for the human eye. Qubiotech's first product, IQBrain, offers to Nuclear Medicine physicians help to diagnostic neurological diseases as Alzheimer, epilepsy, dementia and others by merging PET and RM images and quantifying hemispheric differences in brain function. Quantitative information is given as statistical significative differences between patient brain metabolism and a data base of healthy individuals. Furthermore, PET and RMI images are merged into a single multimodal image the physician can interact with.
  • It's an infosecurity department's worst nightmare. There's been a breach and information is missing. After determining what's been compromised, you need to discover how the data was accessed and exfiltrated from your enterprise. Threats vary from system to system and include malicious insiders, organized crime and accidental disclosure. Data involved can include customer and/or employee information, intellectual property and financial records. Join Intel Security and (ISC)2 on March 17, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern for a look into Intel Security's recent Data Exfiltration Study and discover how data is being stolen, what the bad guys are focusing on and what detection and prevention technologies might be working.
  • Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and women, and is the second leading over all cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Each year, the CDC reports that approximately 135,000 people are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and over 50,000 succumb each year to the illness. The National Cancer Institute cites a decline in the mortality rate of colorectal cancer due to advanced screening and early diagnosis. Immunohistochemistry has served as the catalyst for these advancements in colorectal cancer diagnosis. This presentation covers many of the basic science, facts, and statistics of colorectal cancer, as well as the utility of immunohistochemical testing with markers such as cadherin¬17, CDX¬2, SATB2, and the mismatch repair proteins in the accurate diagnosis and survival rates of colorectal cancer.
