GE Healthcare Introduces New Edge Technology Designed to Give Clinicians
Rapid Access to Critical Data
CHICAGO -- October 14, 2020
GE Healthcare today introduced Edison HealthLink, new edge computing
technology designed specifically for the needs of healthcare providers, that
allows clinicians to collect, analyze and act upon critical data closer to its
source. With 10 applications already available through Edison HealthLink –
including TrueFidelity image reconstruction, Mural Virtual Care and CT Smart
Subscription – the solution gives healthcare providers another entry point
into the Edison ecosystem.
While COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of cloud technology, analyzing
data from a distance can pose various risks to operational efficiency and
patient care. Concerns around bandwidth, network and latency challenges remain
when a matter of seconds could determine the outcome for a patient. For
example, time is critical when diagnosing and treating stroke—around 2 million
brain cells die every minute^1 until
New site features dynamic search of technical reports and access to information on sustainability
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Prospector, a search engine for the mining industry, has launched a new website that provides a more advanced and free search capability for its revolutionary platform, complete with more information and advanced ability to search through a percentage of the thousands of mining technical (43-101) reports accessible within their portal. The Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of mining investment company Analog Gold, believes this new site provides a glimpse into what subscribers can find in the Prospector Portal.
Prospector is an AI-enabled technology platform built to modernize the way investors and researchers search for and access information about mining. Prospector draws data from various public exchanges such as TMX Datalinx, which operates the Toronto Stock Exchange and represents nearly 50% of publicly traded mining projects globally.
On Monday, the US Department of Justice signed on to a new international statement warning of the dangers of encryption and calling for an industry-wide effort to enable law enforcement agencies to access encrypted data once a warrant has been obtained. The US was joined in the effort by officials representing the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, and Japan.
The statement begins by acknowledging the value of encryption in protecting free expression across the world, citing a 2017 report from the UN Human Rights Commission. But the statement quickly pivots to the ostensible problems posed by the technology.
“Particular implementations of encryption technology, however, pose significant challenges to public safety,” the statement reads. “We urge the industry to address our serious concerns where encryption is applied in a way that wholly precludes any legal access to content.”
The Justice Department has a long history of anti-encryption advocacy. In 2018,
Epic sued Apple in August, accusing the technology giant of violating laws that restrict anti-competitive behavior. The suit, filed in federal court for the Northern District of California, alleges Apple has harmed both game-makers and payment processors and asks the court to compel Apple to grant easier access to the App Store.
Apple denied the allegations.
With the case grinding its way toward a scheduled May 2021 trial, Epic in August asked the court to issue a preliminary injunction making Apple open the App Store to Fortnite on a temporary basis. To prevail, Epic had to show both that it would suffer irreparable
(MENAFN) In a way to support member states building back more effectively in the period of post coronavirus recovery, Volkan Bozkir, president of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), demanded this Friday a re-adherence to equal access to technology.
“We need to recommit to equal access to technology. This is particularly crucial for SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) 4: on Quality Education,” stated the president of the UNGA as he was communicating with the Second Committee of the UNGA.
“We must consider the potential of technology as an equalizing force,” the president affirmed.
“As it stands, the digital divide in urban and rural areas, and between developed and developing countries, continues to exacerbate inequalities,” he added.
Volkan Bozkir stated that, affairs like trade, debt, information technology and inclusion all have further meaning and earnestness within the context of the pandemic for the 75th session of the UNGA.
Multidisciplinary tumor boards are vital to cancer treatment plans, bringing together clinicians from different specialties to guide patient treatment and improve outcomes. However, compiling the relevant data for each case is time-consuming and requires contributions from multiple team members. To optimize the process, researchers at the MU School of Medicine partnered with Roche Diagnostics to evaluate a cloud-based product called NAVIFY® Tumor Board that integrates all relevant clinical data for a tumor board into a single digital dashboard accessible to everyone. During a 16-month clinical study of the dashboard, researchers found NAVIFY Tumor Board significantly reduced the amount of time doctors and nurses across multiple specialties spent preparing for 227 tumor board meetings involving 1866 patient cases.
“In addition to saving time, the NAVIFY digital tumor board solution resulted in less variability in preparation time,” said Richard Hammer, MD, professor of pathology at the MU School of Medicine and vice

The classic definition for sexual harassment is unwanted conduct of a sexual nature which happens at a place of employment or in the exercise of work. Sexual harassment can manifest itself physically, psychologically, and various mediums can be manipulated to create a hostile and uncomfortable work environment, for example via use of technology and social media.
If the form of harassment is physical, leading to rape, indecent assault, and aggravated indecent assault in accordance with the Criminal Code, access to medical assistance is critical. It is encouraged that survivors of all forms of sexual violence seek medical attention as there is a lifespan within which the medication is effective.
If a person seeks medical attention within 72 hours, they are highly likely to prevent the spread of HIV and other forms of sexually transmitted infections through the post exposure prophylaxis. Additionally, women are administered the emergency contraceptive pill to prevent
VALENCIA, Spain, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Technology will be critical to ensure water supply in emerging countries around the world in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, explained Chema Nebot, Head of Business Development at Spanish Water technology company Idrica.
