Working on energized equipment is one of the more dangerous scenarios technicians face in the field. As a result, there’s been a concerted industry effort to improve the understanding of electrical shock and arc flash hazards. I believe one of the most important standards in this safety push is the restructured language within the 2018 edition of the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA’s) 70E “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.”
In the past, the standard addressed electrical hazards and risks holistically when considering energized electrical work. But today’s latest guidelines now identify hazards and risks independently and include recommendations for a thorough risk analysis that considers the hazard, the planned work task and potential human error. Together, the changes result in a clearer understanding of energized work and help reduce electrical incidents.

Being able to monitor and respond to patient inquiries quickly and effectively is critical to creating a positive clinical experience and delivering successful products. But compiling and monitoring this data to address customer concerns in a timely way is a challenge when you have disparate sources and systems, global teams, and multiple patients.
Read how a top 10 global pharmaceutical company worked with Slalom and AWS to design and implement a unified and globally distributed event and inquiry data reporting system. By combining three types of requests into one solution, the company has improved the customer experience and increased call center and data input operational efficiency by 50%.

Rehab programs will experience a major infux of medically complex patients, including those with neurological conditions, in the coming decades. The drastic increase is being spurred by an aging population. For instance, stroke prevalence is expected to rise by 21% by 2030, and more than 1.2 million citizens are projected to have Parkinson’s disease.
This leaves rehab leaders with one signifcant question: What can be done to prepare for the increase of medically complex patients? By evolving to meet the needs of this changing population, rehab programs can successfully meet the challenge, providing patients with the highest level of care while achieving greater performance standards.
In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the three areas that drive the greatest impact on treating medically complex patients: • Clinical staff • Tech innovation • Patient and family member experience

Customer identity and access management (CIAM) is increasingly important for brands to deliver the seamless, secure digital experiences demanded by empowered consumers. As part of its Identity and Access Management Playbook, Forrester Research provides guidance to build a customer-obsessed IAM team that has the technical skills, business influence, and interpersonal attributes to architect a CIAM strategy and roll it out across functional groups.
Read the full report to learn critical considerations to make your CIAM team effective. Report highlights:

In this January 2019 report from Forrester, you’ll learn how leading technology companies must engage their customers consistently while learning from their changing needs. To make this happen, IT leaders must offer technical platforms that enable agility and end-to-end integration. This report will show you:
• Why tech leaders must embrace technology that engages and adapts with customers
• The importance of building tech platforms that deliver speed and flexibility
• How to automate and scale Zero Trust security throughout your environments
In the quest to understand how a therapeutic intervention performs in actual use – in real medical practice outside the controlled environment of clinical trials – many life sciences organizations are stymied. They rely on one-off processes, disconnected tools, costly and redundant data stores, and ad hoc discovery methods.
It’s time to standardize real-world data and analytics platforms – to establish much-needed consistency, governance, repeatability, sharing and reuse. The organizations that achieve these goals will formalize their knowledge base and make it scalable, while significantly reducing turnaround times, resources and cost.
Learn the seven key components for putting that structure to real-world evidence – and four ways to take it to the next level.
Imagine: Your pharmaceutical or medical device has been tested in carefully designed
clinical trials and shown to meet required standards of efficacy and safety. It has gained
regulatory approval and has gone to market. Now you want to know, does it measure
up to its promise when used in the real world? Does it materially improve patient
outcomes? Does it outperform alternative therapies? Does it achieve these outcomes at
an appropriate value? Do you know which patients are most likely to benefit from it?
Can you prove it, with statistical rigor?
As the health care system moves toward a patient-centric, value-based approach,
questions such as these are getting heightened scrutiny from all angles – from regula-
tors, payers, providers and patients. And they should. Real-world evidence (RWE) can
provide new insight into the benefits, risks and cost effectiveness of medicines and
medical devices in actual use – evidence that can enable life sciences companies to
develop better therapies
The health care world is changing. And data has a
role to play in that change.
Traditional health care systems are becoming more
accessible and convenient, while also offering lower
priced options. Proactive care — rather than reactive
— is expected, including a shift from disease
management to disease prevention. Likewise,
a greater emphasis on personalized delivery,
including understanding populations, has led to
increased precision in holistic care management.
Combining conventional data sources with
data from previously untapped data sources —
such as electronic health records, wearables,
social determinants, social media, genetics and
diagnostics — creates new possibilities for
understanding the patterns, relationships, and
predictors of wellness and health.
Keep reading this e-book to discover how health
care leaders are generating new opportunities for
innovation and transforming how care is delivered.

Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications
service providers (CSPs). Ovum's recently published 2018 ICT Enterprise survey saw almost all CSP
IT executives interviewed identify delivering personalized customer experience as one of their three
most important business challenges for the next 18 months. This trend emphasizes the high priority
CSPs place on how customer relationships are managed. However, several factors have an impact on
CSPs' ability to identify and then deliver customers' core needs. These include understanding the data
sets they should focus on; collecting, cleansing, and consolidating these data sets; and having the
right expertise to mine the data sets.
The cloud is ubiquitous. Whether we think about it consciously or not, almost all of us are using cloud services. That could be a music service such as Spotify, storage such as Dropbox, communications via Gmail, or a software-as-a-service application such as Salesforce. Cloud services touch all of our lives.
The business landscape is changing fast. That much is obvious. Business models are being disrupted, industry mainstays unseated and old certainties upended on a near-daily basis.
Technology is unlocking new possibilities. But it’s also creating new expectations - especially at work.
By 2020, Gen Y will make up 35% of the workforce. This generation has grown up with open communication platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Now, they’re bringing that same expectation of openness to work.

Cyber-attacks targeting technology and telecommunications firms represent the most significant threat to their sensitive customer data and invaluable intellectual property. When successful, such attacks cost these firms dearly, not only in terms of immediate loss of revenue but also in the form of subsequent reputational damage.
Technology firms that provide digital services or house vast quantities of user information are particularly at risk, as demonstrated in the Uber breach that exposed the personal information of more than 25 million users. Regulations around personal data, such as GDPR, increasingly require technology firms to adopt a robust cyber defense strategy that can detect cyber-threats at an early stage.
Cyber-attacks aimed at technology firms with lucrative IP have also become a fact of life in the Information Age. Often perpetrated by nation-state actors with advanced capabilities, these attacks are now remarkably subtle and stealthy, with some of the latest examples b
