By Oscar Lopez6 Min ReadMEXICO CITY (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – As a transgender woman living in Russia, where LGBT+ people often face abuse and state repression, Chloe Golovleva said she felt like an animal trapped in a cage.“There was no life for me,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.Two years ago, Golovleva left Russia and sought asylum in Argentina where trans people have greater legal protections, but she still felt her co-workers did not accept her.“It’s very difficult to start a new life,” the 40-year-old said. “There’s transphobia and homophobia, just like everywhere else in the world.”Golovleva’s experience is common across the Americas, where conservative social norms often leave trans people locked out of formal work and pushed to the margins of society.But increasingly, LGBT+ advocates and tech entrepreneurs are teaming up to offer training and employment in one of the world’s fastest growing industries: information technology.With relatively well-paid jobs, a disruptive attitude toward traditional work environments and an emphasis on innovation, advocates say the tech industry offers opportunities for trans people often left out in the cold.“There’s a lot of trans folks … who are working in the …

Connecticut’s health information exchange will improve care coordination

connecticut’s health information exchange will improve care coordination

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Kristin Levine, a registered nurse, talks to a patient on the phone at Bristol Hospital.
As the state’s Health Information Technology Officer I am grateful for the CT Mirror story published October 15 about imminent activation of the state’s Health Information Exchange (HIE). The story included terrific comparisons with other states about how Connecticut providers can use the HIE to create efficiencies and improve healthcare treatment here.
Connecticut’s HIE will improve care coordination and make available critically important patient data under some emergency conditions, though it will never supplant the care provided by front-line healthcare workers who are putting themselves at risk every day.
The Office of Health Strategy acknowledges that the implementation of any data system will not in and of itself offer lifesaving capabilities – that remains the purview of well educated, trained, and dedicated healthcare professionals.
Connecticut’s HIE will soon provide front-line healthcare workers and other healthcare providers with relevant and timely data to assist with triage, treatment, and mitigation measures for patients requiring a broad range of medical treatment.
It is gratifying to know that data is flowing more generally in recent years to hospitals and clinics, the way it already flows directly to …
