Kudos for Stanford Hospital’s many technical innovations

A host of new technology at Stanford Hospital has earned the Healthcare and Life Sciences Eye on Innovation Award from Gartner, a research and advisory firm.

Author Mandy EricksonPublished on December 3, 2020December 3, 2020

Arriving at Stanford Hospital to have knee replacement surgery, a patient (let’s call her Sara) is welcomed and guided to her room.

Sara already has Stanford Health Care’s MyHealth app on her phone — she uses it to renew prescriptions, check test results and email her physician — but now that’s she admitted to the hospital, new features appear.

She clicks on an icon and sees photos of the nurse, physical therapist, surgeon and other members of the team who will care for her. She also chooses her brother, at whose home she will recover from the surgery, as her proxy: He will receive all the health information she receives.

Recognized for innovation

The app is one of many intelligent features that earned Stanford Hospital a Healthcare and Life Sciences Eye on Innovation Award from Gartner, an international research and advisory firm.

“By making the entire hospital operation ‘smart’ — from automated patient check in to pharmacy robots — Stanford …

Nutanix Inc. today announced upgrades for two of its storage products, Objects and Files, that will enable companies to take better advantage of the public cloud in their operations.
Publicly traded Nutanix is a major provider of software for managing information technology infrastructure. Objects and Files are two services that companies can deploy atop their Nutanix-managed infrastructure to provide object and file storage capabilities for their applications, respectively.
The Objects service is receiving a cloud tiering feature that will enable companies to shift data from their on-premises hardware to Amazon Web Services. Nutanix positions the feature as a way to reduce the cost of storing archived records, or information that is infrequently accessed if at all but still needs to be retained for legal or other purposes. Nutanix customers using Objects can now move their archived records to AWS to take advantage of its S3 service’s low-cost object storage pricing, which starts at well under a cent per gigabyte per month. 
Files, the other service updated today, is also receiving a boost to its hybrid cloud capabilities. Notably, customers can now deploy the service on AWS and use it to manage their off-premises file repositories. The AWS deployment support …

Federal Effort Aims to Standardize Addresses to Improve Patient Matching

federal effort aims to standardize addresses to improve patient matching

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

A federal initiative launched Dec. 1 could help achieve a goal long sought by health technology experts by establishing a better standard for data to accurately link patients’ medical records across the various facilities where they receive care.
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), the federal agency that oversees electronic health records (EHRs), announced its “Project [email protected]” initiative to develop a health care-specific format for one piece of information that is essential for connecting medical records: patient addresses. This effort—which will involve collaboration among the leading health care standards development organizations—builds on research that shows that use of a consistent format for recording mailing addresses can lead to markedly improved patient matching rates when records are shared across different health care providers.
Previous work by Pew and Indiana University indicates that using address formatting guidelines from the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) would boost match rates by 3%, enough to potentially link tens of thousands of additional records every day. Although such progress would not completely solve the problem, address standardization can help improve record matches in the near-term with data that is collected and used.
In fact, the clear value of standardizing addresses …
