  • Finally -- Evidence-Based Best Practices For Using UV Disinfection Equipment Finally -- Evidence-Based Best Practices For Using UV Disinfection Equipment Dr. William Jarvis MD, Dr. Thomas Kelley MD Recorded: May 25 2016 62 mins
    You wouldn’t operate a ventilator or administer an IV without knowing there are scientific studies that back up your procedures. You learned best practices supported by scientific research.

    We have the science and consensus to support UV disinfection best practices. Best practices that have resulted in infection rate reductions in real hospital environments.

    Your discussion will be led by esteemed experts Dr. William Jarvis and Dr. Thomas Kelley.

    William Jarvis, MD is a world leader in infection prevention. Among many other accomplishments he worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 23 years, and has published over 450 peer reviewed papers. Recently it was said of Dr. Jarvis, “His decades of service and uncompromised commitment to [infection prevention] has lead to changes in how infection control is administered and has saved many lives.”

    Dr. Jarvis will discuss:
    -Most recent CDC and SHEA guidelines, and the metrics involved
    -A review of the science available on UV technologies in the market
    -What to look for when evaluating a UV technology

    Thomas Kelley, MD is Chief of Quality and Clinical Transformation at Orlando Health. He is a practicing primary care physician in Florida and has been a champion of quality improvement his entire career. He developed the first quality improvement council for the residency program when he was a faculty physician training residents at Atlanta Medical Center, and has continued to give his time and expertise to the causes of patient safety and quality care ever since. Colleagues say, “Dr. Kelley is a true champion for quality.”

    Dr. Kelley will discuss:
    -An integrated disinfection program with pulsed xenon enlightening best practices
    -Review of the results from a system-wide deployment of pulsed xenon light technology
    -How they achieved a $3.8M cost avoidance from HAI rate reduction in 12 months
  • How U.S. hospitals Enhance Patient Care with PCoIP & Imprivata technology How U.S. hospitals Enhance Patient Care with PCoIP & Imprivata technology Chris Smith, Imprivata & Patrick Mauro, Teradici Recorded: May 25 2016 61 mins
    Today, hospitals and healthcare organizations are under increasing pressure to revamp the way doctors and clinicians work and the how patients are treated ̶ IT based solutions across medical units work to make patient treatment and medical professional work more efficient and effective.

    Join us for an informative session and hear how leading hospitals have reduced IT costs and increased clinical staff productivity.

    This webinar will share how three medical facilities in the U.S. have successfully:
    •Streamlined clinical workflows with “no click access”
    •Ensured the protection of patient information and compliance requirements with “tap in and out” user authentication and highly secure PCoIP® Zero Clients
    •Increased staff and doctor satisfaction with a consistent user experience that follows them no matter where they need to work
    •Reduced operational costs by deploying PCoIP Zero Clients, PCoIP Management Console Enterprise Edition and Imprivata OneSign® Single Sign On (SSO)
  • In Vitro Characterization of Species Difference of OATP In Vitro Characterization of Species Difference of OATP Na Li, Ph.D. Recorded: May 25 2016 52 mins
    Organic anion-transporting polypeptides (OATPs) play an important role in hepatic uptake of a variety of clinically important drugs. The significant differences in OATP/Oatp-dependent drug transport between human and preclinical species presents a challenge for interspecies extrapolation of drug pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. The assessment of the difference in hepatic uptake between species using an in vitro model is highly desired to support mechanistic studies and to understand the differences observed between species in vivo.

    The Corning® TransportoCells™ model has demonstrated significant value in terms of supporting in vitro assessment of drug interaction with SLC transporters in drug discovery and development. Recently, several animal species of Oatps were introduced into the Corning TransportoCells portfolio. This webinar will focus on the development of the newly available animal species and characterization of the differences in OATP/Oatp in substrate specificity and kinetics using this "thaw and go" model.
  • Care Delivery Transformation Through Telehealth – Growth Opportunities in APAC Care Delivery Transformation Through Telehealth – Growth Opportunities in APAC Natasha Gulati, Kiranjit Kaur Recorded: May 25 2016 51 mins
    Demand for telehealth is on the rise in APAC as healthcare industry stakeholders across the region seek to address challenges of an ageing population and rising healthcare costs.

  • Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with many important functions in the body, such as immune-system stimulation, growth and repair of tissue, cardiovascular health, bone health and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Recent science has highlighted its potential health benefits, reaching far beyond its antioxidant function for which vitamin C is primarily known. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce by itself, it must be obtained from the diet or from supplements. Yet, although vitamin C is a common constituent in most fruits and vegetables, many people are still deficient worldwide.

    Join us on May 16th, so that you can be one of the first to see our new webinar on the role of vitamin C in human health and disease. The session will be presented by Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. Together, they will discuss the science behind vitamin C, provide examples of its key known functions, as well as share the potential health benefits of consuming it in higher doses. If you miss the first showing, don’t worry - the webinar will also be made available on demand.

  • Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyper-converged Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyper-converged Sushant Rao, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: May 18 2016 38 mins
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyper-converged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.

  • Imaging Analytics: Archived images can help identify and manage patients at risk Imaging Analytics: Archived images can help identify and manage patients at risk Charlotte Hovet, MD, MMM, CPE; Medical Director for Dell Services and Mitchell Goldburgh, Global Solutions Manager Recorded: May 12 2016 41 mins
    The rich data in your imaging archive is a resource that has largely been untapped. But now, Dell’s Clinical Cloud Services can help you tap that resource to impact population health and predict hidden risks in your patient population. Using automated machine vision medical image analysis, this new technology identifies patients at risk for chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease and other conditions, possibly well ahead of overt symptoms. Think of the value this could bring to patients and the advantage it would offer to a healthcare organization in a value-based reimbursement environment. Using existing prescribed imaging studies, Dell’s Imaging Analytics Platform selects appropriate studies that are analyzed for indications of disease presence. The platform makes the results available as reports, which are shared via HL7 or as DICOM objects. These reports are used by primary care physicians and care management program coordinators to provide follow up with patients on diagnostic tests and preventative care programs.
