Driverless cars are just one popular example of machine learning. It’s also used in
countless applications such as predicting fraud, identifying terrorists, recommending
the right products to customers at the right time, and correctly identifying medical
symptoms to prescribe appropriate treatments.
The concept of machine learning has been around for decades. What’s new is that
it can now be applied to huge quantities of data. Cheaper data storage, distributed
processing, more powerful computers and new analytical opportunities have dramatically
increased interest in machine learning systems. Other reasons for the increased
momentum include: maturing capabilities with methods and algorithms refactored to
run in memory; the

This paper is the first in a four-part series examines the ways that wireless technology and mobile communications can enhance the efficiency and quality of institutional healthcare, improving the processes through which doctors, nurses, specialists and support staff members deliver medical treatment. Part One offers an overview of the current healthcare situation and suggests ways in which wireless technology solutions address healthcare challenges.
Dr. Scott Boden, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Director of the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center, has a deep understanding of what it takes to run a successful medical practice that provides optimal patient care in today’s complex health care environment. A lauded physician and researcher–he discovered a gene that triggers human bone growth–Dr.Boden gained this insight while treating thousands of patients each year.
Creating a highly efficient, consistent, and cost-effective way to evaluate and treat patients is, according to Dr. Boden, central to success. He also places a high priority on gathering comprehensive data on patient outcomes, while easing the burden of medical documentation.
In 2010, Queens Pediatrics began evaluating Electronic Health Record (EHR) solutions to improve access to patient records. The practice’s affiliation with North Shore LIJ prompted it to evaluate solutions from Allscripts. North Shore LIJ is the largest user of Allscripts system and provides a financial subsidy to its affiliated practices that adopt the solutions.
The challenge for Queens Pediatrics was the small size of its offices, which didn’t provide enough room for multiple workstations or to move mobile computer carts through the hallways. “There were only two options. The physicians either had to use a laptop or we had to have a PC in each room, and that doesn’t work well in a pediatric office,” said Janette Finn, the Practice Manager at Queens Pediatrics.

There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats.
Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as
Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.
This white paper discusses how IBM InfoSphere can support the integration and governance of Big Data in healthcare. The white paper reviews three case studies including predictive analytics with Electronic Medical Records, time series data in a neonatal intensive care unit and predictive pathways for disease.

Besides wages, helping pay for health care is the most valued benefit that businesses can offer their employees. Even small businesses with modest benefit budgets can help their workers pay insurance premiums or medical bills with several options that offer tax benefits both to the employee and the company.
This white paper outlines a number of employer-offered benefits to help employees cover health-care expenses.
Employers of choice are committed to providing their employees with a rich benefits and compensation program while trying to decrease or maintain operating costs. Our 2015 survey - with over 3,000 participating organizations - covers everything from high-level questions about organizational priorities and benefit strategies, to current and future tactics related to medical and pharmacy benefits, wellness, work-life balance, retirement and employee communications.
