As healthcare organizations become more adept at collaboration, data mining, and understanding the unique populations they serve, they are designing innovative care programs that involve higher risks and rewards.
For a non-profit enterprise seeking to design effective investment portfolios for its asset pools, understanding the role of each of those asset pools is a crucial first step.
The organization's goals and exposures can impact all parts of its portfolio construction process, from initial broad decisions on risk tolerance to more targeted decisions on asset-class exposures and investment vehicle preferences.
In October 2013, S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI) launched the S&P Healthcare Claims Indices (the indices). This new index series is designed to provide an independent, timely measure of the changes in healthcare expenditures and utilization for individuals enrolled in commercial health insurance plans in the United States.
S&P DJI developed these new indices in conjunction with healthcare professionals at Health Index Advisors (HIA), a joint venture between the premier actuarial and consulting firms Aon Inc. and Milliman Inc. S&P DJI combined its knowledge and experience in developing leading indices with HIA’s experience in the healthcare market to develop the first index series of its kind, based on actual healthcare claims data. These indices seek to increase transparency in the healthcare market and enable the analysis and tracking of changes in healthcare expenditures.

For many organizations, digital transformation (DX) is the most strategically important initiative for the
organization and may determine its ability to compete in the coming decade. IDC estimates that 60%
of organizations will have created and begun implementation
of a digital transformation strategy by 2020. These DX
initiatives are designed to take the organization forward as a
proactive, data-driven company that uses and monetizes data
to gain competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Technology plays a key role in online shopping, where online retailers gain a greater understanding of their customers through data from their browsing and purchasing habits. Today, when consumers shop in brick-and-mortar stores, they expect the same personalized and responsive service.
To help retailers achieve this level of service, a combination of hardware and software—Intel® Vision Accelerator Design products, cameras, AI deep learning video analysis technology— do the work for you.
Uncover how Advantech system uses the Intel Vision Accelerator Design with Intel Movidius VPU to drive
• Overall store performance such as the number of visitors and transactions, point-of-sale data, sales per shopper and the store’s ranking, and can distinguish traffic patterns by weather and time of day
• Traffic and sales analysis for better staff allocation and marketing-event planning
• Store heatmap analysis for more precise merchandise placement and product promotion
Robots play a key role in achieving manufacturing efficiencies and reducing labor intensive operations across diverse industries. Traditional machine vision has its limitations, however—typically, it can only conduct defect detection and classification based on fixed rules and work in fixed environments. To add on, the complexity of robotic system design poses challenges for many manufacturers to identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
The future of robot and machine solutions is a production environment where devices, machines, robots, and sensors are interoperable.
Find out how NexCOBOT integrates AI-driven vision capabilities into robotics to improve quality and accuracy over traditional machine vision—as well as providing an open and modular solution for users to develop a robot control system that best fits their particular application requirements.
The market for connected and embedded car navigation needs a kick-start. Lengthy design cycles and a fragmented supply chain have contributed to a sector that lags far behind consumer expectation and now sees Apple and Google as direct competitors for the in-vehicle experience space.

GSA and DHS developed the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation
(CDM) program in 2013. The program was designed to provide
agencies with quick access to automated network monitoring
and risk-assessment tools that are able to quickly prioritize and
remediate security vulnerabilities. DHS is authorized to pay for the
first two years of the program as an incentive for implementing
CDM. Agencies are making progress, but as Kent’s statement
suggests, there is still work to do.
