There’s a price to all that free stuff on the Internet. They make your end user device do very funky and annoying things.
Who said something to the effect “if it’s free, you are product.” That is an absolutely brilliant and spot on statement. FB is free because it delivers more or less, 850 million humanoids to advertisers. Google, the same. Freeware developers are selling you and me.
A new chapter is about to open in the tablet market, but will the challengers to Apple’s iPad be good enough?
Competition to Apple’s iPad is inching up ever so anemically. Gartner, according to an Associated Press story earlier this week, says the iPad owned fully two thirds of the tablet market in 2011 and while it forecast that dominance to drop a few points in 2012, iPad unit sales will almost double to 73 million this year.
Great question, Kathleen. EHRs will help in terms of information accessibility and efficiency. But there are many caveats. I went through the medical mill this summer and was horrified at how lackadaisacally my records or more specifically tests results - slides and image disks - were handled. Or mishandled. One disk was mailed to a complete stranger in an unmarked enveloped who had the wherewithal to track me down. Another sample completely vanished.
My take is patients should have the option to manage their own records because the medical infrastructure is so swamped, it cannot accurately, efficiently and legally handle records (my privacy was violated several times). That extends to x-ray and MRI disks, film, slides, reports etc. which were more the problem than my basic info records. And something has to be done about the layer below the docs who handle this material - one admin kept referring to the patients who recieved the disk in error as "Mr. and Mrs. Dodge."
This scared me to death and shook my confidence to the core. And it rattled the other patients with whom we swapped notes.
I believe in EHRs, but they are only as good as the integrity of the data, reports and images they contain.

“I want to do private cloud because I want to be more agile and because I want to be much more efficient at IT operations”.
Um. Private cloud will most certainly help you with the first objective – it will stand up development, test and production environments (i.e. server/storage/network and middleware and dev, test and production applications) much more quickly. And it will “cut IT out the loop” allowing users to have their requests actioned without humans holding up the process.
We in HP Software have created a new HP Software Cloud presentation. I"ve posted two versions. The first has a voiceover (only about 10 minutes). The second is a PDF created from showing the slides and the notes I created for each slide.
I was explaining to my teenage kids the other day what I did. I talked about how our
software products ensured that IT infrastructure was reliable. Blank look.
"What is IT infrastructure?", they asked. I said, "it's like the
power or water or sewage".
