first_imgThe move to electronic health records (EHR) is underway, albeit not as quick as some would like.  While the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reports that over 114,000 physicians and hospitals have registered for the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs, and thousands of physicians have moved to using EHRs, the adoption rate still remains fairly low.Somewhere in the range of only 15-20 percent of physicians have moved to EHRs.  Compared to some countries, like Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands where more than 90 percent of physicians have adopted EHRs, the US still has a lot of catching up to do.But momentum for EHRs seems to be building.  A report by Frost and Sullivan found that the Total market revenue for EHRs is expected to hit $6.5 billion in 2012, which is more than a sixfold increase from the $973.2 million posted in 2009.  Physicians are being motivated by both the incentives and the penalties associated with complying with the US federal government EHR incentive program.  The widespread use of tablet computers is also accelerating the move by physicians to EHRs — by one estimate more than 75 percent of physicians own a tablet device, like the iPad.The biggest monetary incentive to physicians is the HITECH Act of 2009 which allocates around $30 billion towards providing incentives and encouraging improvements to the use of IT in medicine.  But along with the incentives, there are penalties too.  For example, there are federal rules that now dictate electronic data interchange (EDI), patient privacy laws (HIPAA), and disease classification and coding (ICD-10), and compliance with these rules dictate the need to improve medial IT practices.   Other regulations, like Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010, are designed to improve health insurance and access to health care.Nancy Fabozzi, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan, said that “The Hospitals absolutely understand that they have to have a new business model and EHRs are at the heart of that change.  It’s about collecting, analyzing and exchanging data–they can’t do that without an EHR, which is why for hospitals the adoption of an EHR is inevitable.” is designed to reform health insurance and improve access to care for millions of Americans by 2014.”Meredith Ressi, president of Manhattan Research, said that “growth in access of electronic health records by patients has been remarkable in the last year.  There’s been strong pent up demand from consumers over the years, but only now has the supply side caught up as a result of the government mandate. This is the beginning of a real shift in care delivery and patient engagement.”last_img read more

first_imgTags:#Autonomous car#Britain#Internet of Things#IoT#LUTZ Pathfinder#LUTZ project#Pod Zero#pods#RDM Group#Self-Driving#UK Related Posts RDM Group, the firm responsible for the LUTZ Pathfinder –  a single seat autonomous car that drives on paths – plans to launch multiple new pods at this week’s Automechanika event.The firm will launch three new driverless pods that fit two, four, and eight people, according to the Coventry Telegraph. See Also: Will Tesla go fully self-driving before the Model 3?Unlike other automakers that are attempting to build autonomous systems into pre-existing models, RDM Group went for a striking redesign with the PathFinder. We should expect a funky design for Pod Zero, which RDM claims is perfect for airports, shopping centers, and theme parks, where transport is limited. “This is a massive day for our company and puts us right at the forefront of driverless pod manufacturing,” said David Keene, chief executive of RDM Group. “Pod Zero represents the next generation of pod and features different drivetrain, steering systems and a new striking interior that is dominated by video screens that can play adverts, information videos or showcase the view from outside.”Looking for revenue from…ads?RDM is banking on advertising to be the money maker for its driverless project. Instead of the person sitting inside the pod focusing on the road (or path), it wants them to interact with the iPads during their journey.“We have taken learning from the LUTZ project and moved it on significantly so we now have a manufacturing process that could be ramped up to meet more than £15m of anticipated new orders,” said Keene. The LUTZ project was part of the UK Government’s Transport System Catapult Autodrive project. The new pods will have a range of 60 miles, not great when compared to cars, but enough for short trips in public places. It has a top speed of 15 mph, which should allow Pod Zero to remain on the pathways. RDM has also ensured that the pod is accessible for disabled people and has provided wheelchair access. Pods might be one of the emerging technologies that we’re just starting to see enter the market. We’ve already heard that disabled and old people will benefit the most from self-driving, and the pods could be another way for people with difficulties walking long distance to get around easily.  IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… 5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle…center_img For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… David Curry Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and…last_img read more

first_imgTaking an exception to Wipro Chairman Azim Premji’s questioning the priorities of the government in view of the huge money spent on the Commonwealth Games, Sports Minister M S Gill on Sunday said the industry should look what it was doing for sport, before criticising.Premji in a recent article in a leading national daily had said that the thousands of crores of rupees being spent on Games could have been used for building schools and improve infrastructure in the poor parts of the country like Bihar.Gill was obviously not pleased with what Premji wrote.”Let (Indians) industry look what they are doing. The sportsperson of the country need money. My (message) for big captains (of industries) is that they should come forward,” Gill said on the sidelines of the National Sports Awards ceremony here.Sports Minister M.S. Gill.Premji, who heads India’s one of the largest software development companies, is the currently second richest person of the country with a personal wealth of USD 17 billion.The Sports Minister cited example of Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates for his charity works for USA and asked the Indian industry to follow suit.”I do wish to say that the Industry should contribute towards promotion of sport and spokespersons. I look at Bill Gates. He is doing so much, lot of charities and things which interests him for America,” he said.Initially the budget of the Organising Committee was 655 crore but the total spending now is estimated to be Rs. 11,494 crore.advertisementAnd it will be close to 28,000 crore if the additional amount of Rs. 16,560, spent by Delhi government for the development of infrastructure in the capital is added.”Is this drain on public funds for the greater common good? How can we forget that we could have established primary schools and health centres in tens of thousands of villages? Can we ignore this splurge the next time a malnourished child looks at us in the eye?””India needs more schools, and the existing schools need better infrastructure and more teachers. To not have this, and to instead spend on a grand sporting spectacle sounds like we have got our priorities wrong,” Premji had written.Gill on his part, spoke about industry houses like Tata Steel Limited, who were presented ‘Rashtriya Khel Protsahana Puruskar’ for their contribution in development of sport in the country.”We have started recognising, from last year, to recognise the industry houses (who are doing something for sport). Tata got their second award today,” he said.last_img read more
