  • Hyper-converged storage is turning out to be the buzz phrase of the storage industry in 2015, one with as many confusing and contradictory definitions as there are vendors. In theory, the combining of server and storage tiers into a single entity should deliver better application performance and lower infrastructure costs. In practice, your mileage will vary.

    Join us for this webinar where industry expert Jon Toigo – chairman and co-founder of the Data Management Institute – will help to identify key criteria for making the right infrastructure decision for your business. Mr. Toigo will offer his key criteria in selecting a hyper-converged infrastructure model and he will survey the offerings of leading vendors to identify the “gotchas,” trade-offs and lock-ins of each option so you find the best fit for your company.

  • With data breaches and data leakage incidents becoming front page news, cyber investigations are taking on more importance within organizations. This calls for a new set of skills to be developed such as the ability to work with all levels of law enforcement, lawyers and attorneys and within the judicial system. Many of these investigations will call for the cybersecurity practitioner to be a witness and give testimony. What's the best way to do this to protect yourself and the organization, while also providing the information that will help law enforcement and the justice system to get the information they need? Join (ISC)2 on March 26, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern for our next "From the Trenches" webcast where we'll talk about what it means to be an expert witness and the best practices for serving as one.
  • 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, multi-lineage 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. Serum-free mammalian cell culture media, in particular, require optimization of the expansion protocols. Even subtle changes in routine handling can have a significant impact on 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, and seeding density. We will also discuss how users can select the correct conditions for optimized growth and functionality.

    Speaker Biography:
    Brian Posey is a Product Development Manager for cell culture media at Corning Life Sciences. Brian has over 10 years experience in cell biology and industrial scale cGMP manufacturing of both liquid and powder cell culture media. Since joining Corning in 2012, Brian has lead numerous innovative technology projects for the media business ranging from customer technology transfer for production scale-up to developing new serum-free media for industrial and stem cell lines.
  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.

    Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.

    Topics covered
    -------------------
    + How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
    + The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design
    + Best practice in moving from an application-centric to a data object-centric connectivity approach

  • Lync 2013 (soon to be Skype for Business) is commonly known as an instant messaging client that includes voice and video capabilities within the enterprise. However, its ability to cross enterprise network boundaries and reach colleagues, partners, and customers across the globe via mobile phones or traditional telephony systems is often overlooked. The natural progression in collaboration may start with a quick instant messaging conversation but often leads to picking up the phone and calling someone to attain resolution.

    Join us on Wednesday, March 25th at 2pm EST to learn about the capabilities of Lync Enterprise Voice, ways to implement it as a cost savings to your business, the impact of the launch of Skype for business and how the progression of enterprise voice collaborative tools are changing the way we run our businesses today.

  • NHS governance in a rapidly evolving landscape of health and social care May 22 2015 10:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Paul Stanton, visiting Professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at De Montford University, Leicester
    By the third week of May we should all know the composition of the next government. Whichever party or parties assume power, the next government will need urgently to confront a demand resource collision that threatens the continued existence of the welfare state and of the NHS itself.

    It has long been apparent that, as the House of Lords Select Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change made clear in 2013: "England has an inappropriate model of health and social care to deal with the needs of an ageing population ... By 2030 the number of people who are 85+ will have increased by 100%' compared to 2010".

    The argument for greater coherence and integration of health and social care commissioning and provision is driven as much by considerations of coherence and quality as it is by financial necessity. As the Five Year Forward View has already made clear there may be ‘local choice between radical options', but not a choice between the maintenance of the status quo and a radical option. For NHS commissioners and providers (across all specialisms) the challenge is to grasp the opportunity to shape new local forms of integrated commissioning and service development.

    The NHS organisations that survive and thrive in such a rapidly evolving and competitive marketplace will be characterised by proactivity, agility and their eagerness to embrace new forms of strategic partnership.

    This Webinar will consider the specific governance challenges that will confront Boards and Governing Bodies in an evolving cultural context where, as Stevens recently observed, “my institution right or wrong is not going to be what’s required from the service’s new generation of leaders".

  • The NHS Cost Recovery from Overseas Visitors and Migrants who use the NHS Recorded: Feb 10 2015 59 mins
    Sir Keith Pearson Government’s independent NHS adviser for the Cost Recovery Programme
    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.

  • Employment taxes risk for the NHS Recorded: Oct 13 2014 62 mins
    Gary Saunders, Senior Manager, PricewaterhouseCoopers
    The employment tax status of workers can be difficult to establish. Where non compliance with the tax legislation arises, it is the NHS organisation, not the worker, that is exposed to additional PAYE and National Insurance Contributions ("NIC") as well as statutory interest and penalties. With increased HMRC activity in this area and the financial as well as the reputational risk non compliance brings, this session will look to share some of the areas PwC is seeing in practice as concern to HM Revenue & Customs ("HMRC"). This will include individuals engaged as self-employed, as office holders, through Personal Service Companies and agencies. The session will also look at the interaction with the additional HM Treasury annual requirements for reporting off payroll payments.
