RW Webinar: Rising demand for connectivity drives IoT advances in healthcare

first_imgWhat about HIPAA?A key component that must be integrated into any technology is data security that meets HIPAA requirements.Tom Rose, Director of Business Development, IoT Solutions, at KORE, believes the Internet of Things (IoT) brings smarter technology to bear on the unique challenges facing 21st Century healthcare. “IoT solutions support a customer-centric approach that cuts costs and scales according to need. Whether managing Help Desk inquiries or retrieving peripherals (such as insulin monitoring devices), solutions like KORE support smarter healthcare regardless of vertical.”The rising demand for connectivity cannot function effectively in the old siloed system. An integrated smart-tech approach to the problem brings healthcare into the homes of those who need it. Furthermore, any technology must guarantee data security that meets HIPAA requirements.“The future of healthcare is connected, integrated, and secure,” says Rose. “Whether putting tablets in the hands of patients, or improving health outcomes in the field, or tracking patient follow-through on post-operative instructions, IoT meets the increasing demand for connectivity.”To find out how to leverage IoT technology to power healthcare connectivity, join ReadWrite and KORE for a free webinar.During this free webinar, experts in the field of health IoT will discuss:The benefits of IoT in healthcareExample use cases demonstrating this innovationHow to implement connected solutions to power innovationHow data flow between devices, to the cloud, and to enterprise systems can be achievedSign up for this 60-minute webinar today and gain valuable insights into building an effective IoT strategy within healthcare:Our panelists:Tom Rose, Director of Business Development, IoT Solutions, KOREMarie Finnegan, Principal Portfolio Marketing Specialist, AllscriptsRachael Brownell, Webinar Manager, ReadWrite Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Tags:#HIPAA#Internet of Things#IoT#KORE#webianr Trevor Curwin Related Posts The U.S. Census projects that between 2012 and 2050 the aging population will almost double. Baby boomers account for the majority of this growth and present a unique challenge to healthcare providers. Unlike their predecessors, Boomers want to “age in place” and expect to manage acute and chronic illness, accessing their healthcare providers virtually as well as via traditional in-person appointments.By 2050, the population age 65 and older is projected to be 84 million, two times greater than 2012 estimates, says the U.S. CensusIt’s not just Boomers who expect to address illness from the comfort of their living rooms. Increasingly, consumer expectations of 24/7 access to care necessitate technological advances in healthcare. And monitoring and diagnostics technology are more than up to the challenge.Healthcare regulations are changing to accommodate treatment outside of the four walls of the hospital and clinic. With access to the right technology, data, and expertise, field service workers can provide care at a lower cost than their on-site colleagues.

Glimpse of a hero

first_imgI was overwhelmed to read about the way the Indian Army recaptured Tololing (“Taking Tololing”, July 5). It was thrilling to find how Lt. Vijayant Thapar of the Rajputana Rifles managed to keep the morale of his soliders high by playing songs from Border on his Walkman. For some strange,I was overwhelmed to read about the way the Indian Army recaptured Tololing (“Taking Tololing”, July 5). It was thrilling to find how Lt. Vijayant Thapar of the Rajputana Rifles managed to keep the morale of his soliders high by playing songs from Border on his Walkman. For some strange reason, I went through the story again and again. I peered at the photographs closely too and noticed that in the picture on page 29, one of the soldiers sported a name tag “Vijayant” on his chest. Two days later, I was stunned to hear that Thapar and some brave jawans had made the supreme sacrifice for their motherland.Datta S. Bagade, on e-mail from Aurangabadlast_img read more

More Than 500 Young Persons to Be Certified Through HOPE

first_img More than 500 young participants in the Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) programme are to graduate by the end of June.Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ on April 18, National Coordinator of the HOPE programme, Lt. Col. Martin Rickman, said the participants will receive certificates for having successfully completed their training and apprenticeship by the end of the second quarter of this year.“The initial training, which is referred to as core skills training, includes a values and attitudes component, followed by a basic skills training component, after which they serve as an apprentice and are paid a stipend,” said Lt. Col. Rickman.Upon completion, the candidates are assessed for certification by HEART Trust/ NTA, in accordance with the programme guidelines.The Coordinator further noted that certification carries dual benefits, as the person would have been certified as having served his country as well as being certified in a specific skill area.“They can then go on to use this certification to secure gainful employment later on, or to start their own business ventures, if they so choose,” noted Lt. Col. Rickman.According to Lt. Col. Rickman, a system of monitoring is currently being developed as a means of following up with graduates from the programme.“We want to track their progress for a few years to ensure they continue on the path that they have started,” he said.Meanwhile, the Coordinator indicated that there are currently 5,000 participants in the programme, and of that number, 2,500 persons are actively engaged in a number of specialised areas across various agencies and departments.“We have persons placed within organisations such as The National Housing Trust, Accountant General’s Department (AGD), Factories Corporation of Jamaica (FCJ), Urban Development Corporation (UDC), Port Authority of Jamaica, HEART Trust/NTA, the Ministry of Education, among others, and we are hoping to have some take-up within the private sector in short order,” Lt.
