Frost & Sullivan Analyst on the Pain Points of Electronic Health Records

6322734819_a6c9748c49_zNeil Versel of Forbes recently wrote, “Electronic health records’ usability, or lack thereof, is the big talk this year in health IT, as federal officials get ready to contemplate the rules for Stage 3 of the Meaningful Use EHR incentive program. While Stage 3 will not begin before 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has indicated that it will publish draft regulations in the spring. The hope is to finalize the rules before the end of 2015 so vendors can update their technology and give healthcare providers plenty of time to install and adjust to the updates before they move to Stage 3.” Read more

Nova Spivack Weighs In On an Open Standard for Cards

9739012031_1fe744c999_nNova Spivack, CEO of Bottlenose, recently opined in TechCrunch, “Cards are fast becoming the hot new design paradigm for mobile apps, but their importance goes far beyond mobile. Cards are modular, bite-sized content containers designed for easy consumption and interaction on small screens, but they are also a new metaphor for user-interaction that is spreading across all manner of other apps and content. The concept of cards emerged from the stream — the short content notifications layer of the Internet — which has been evolving since the early days of RSS, Atom and social media.” Read more

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography Turns Ten

odnbDavid Hill Radcliffe of the OUPblog recently wrote, “The publication of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography in September 2004 was a milestone in the history of scholarship, not least for crossing from print to digital publication. Prior to this moment a small army of biographers, myself among them, had worked almost entirely from paper sources, including the stately volumes of the first, Victorian ‘DNB’ and its 20th-century print supplement volumes. But the Oxford DNB of 2004 was conceived from the outset as a database and published online as web pages, not paper pages reproduced in facsimile. In doing away with the page image as a means of structuring digital information, the online ODNB made an important step which scholarly monographs and articles might do well to emulate.” Read more

Mark van Rijmenam of Big Data Startups recently wrote, “Geospatial data is data that identifies a geographic location on Earth, such as natural or constructed features, oceans, and more. The data is generally stored as coordinates and topology and can be mapped. Geospatial data is all around us and it is growing at a staggering pace of 20% per year. McKinsey Global Institute estimated that location data level stood at 1 petabyte in 2009, excluding data from RFID tags. Geospatial data is created by a vast array of different applications such as satellites, digital cameras, wearables, smartphones, radars, sensor networks, cars, trucks, trains and other transportation. With trends such as the quantified-self, the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet the amount of geospatial data will grow exponentially in the coming years and you can harness this data to better serve your customers.” Read more

Alexandra Stevenson of The New York Times reports, “You may not admit that you want to watch ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ but Netflix knows you do. Using algorithms that use search data to predict what television shows people want to watch is one way in which companies are using Big Data to connect the dots. It’s captured the imagination of some of Silicon Valley’s most well-known venture capitalists, who have committed more than $10 million to a new early stage fund to help foster start-ups that analyze behavioral data to determine patterns and make predictions about social behavior.” Read more
