Manufacturing: Communications Buying Guide

Published By: Motorola Solutions     Published Date: Nov 29, 2018
When it comes to worker safety, mitigating downtime, and boosting productivity, nothing is faster than right NOW. Organizations across various industry segments — construction, food and beverage, chemical and industrial, and transportation equipment manufacturers — are juggling a mix of communication devices, slowing response times. Gaps in coverage, poor battery life and aging equipment reduce your ability to safely and efficiently meet production deadlines. The power of NOW puts instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because when communication slows, production slows. Manufacturers today are under immense pressure to produce goods safely, efficiently and profitably. Meeting these goals requires reliable, clear voice and data communications. So the production line is always moving. So well-executed logistics exceed expectations. So materials and operations are tracked to maintain efficiency. So your most valuable assets — your people — are safe and connected. Unified tea

Strategia e architettura delle API: un approccio coordinato

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Apr 10, 2018
L'avvento delle API (interfacce di programmazione delle applicazioni) rappresenta al contempo un'opportunità di business e una sfida tecnologica. Per i leader di business, le API sono un'occasione per generare nuovi flussi di ricavi e massimizzare il valore offerto ai clienti. Ricade però sugli architetti aziendali la responsabilità di creare API che consentano di riutilizzare i sistemi backend in nuove applicazioni web e mobile. È fondamentale che tutti gli stakeholder comprendano la stretta correlazione tra gli obiettivi aziendali e le sfide tecniche di un programma API. Spetta ai manager del programma la responsabilità di comunicare con chiarezza gli obiettivi di business primari delle API proposte agli architetti che poi realizzeranno materialmente l'interfaccia.

Does the Quality of a Patient’s Wristband Really Matter?

Published By: Zebra Technologies     Published Date: Jun 20, 2018
Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry. At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care. H

Smarter Operations Chapter Three: Additive Manufacturing in Production

Published By: UPS     Published Date: Nov 09, 2017
The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

Making Real-World Evidence Real White Paper

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Jun 27, 2019
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
