They have the memory, they have the analysis, they have the intelligence.”With Facebook reaching two billion users, he noted that the degrees of separation between users has fallen from 5.3 to 3.5, adding that Facebook is a bigger community than any country in the world.A major challenge for the industry is handling the dramatic explosion of data, which he said requires more and more bandwidth to get the data back to servers in order to make sense of it.“There are something like 12 to 16 million photos uploaded every minute and 60 million text messages sent every minute,” he said.

Vermont Business Magazine Rutland’s OpenEMR, the most popular open source electronic health records (EHR) and medical practice management solution, announced today that OpenEMR version 5.0 has achieved Complete ONC certification, through Infogard. This certification is vital for medical practices in the US to comply with MACRA and participate in Medicare’s Quality Payment Program.The Complete Meaningful Use Certification was the result of a community effort that spanned several years, involving over $200,000 in effort and code contributions. The number of enhancements brought into OpenEMR was expansive and includes standardization of patient medical information, coordination of care, patient privacy, patient engagement, security, public health and automated calculations of metrics and clinical quality measures. The list of direct contributors to this effort included ZH Healthcare, Ensoftek, Visolve, MI-Squared, Brady Miller MD, EMR Direct, Jan Jajalla, Sunset Systems, Columbia University Certification of Professional Achievement in Health IT, Jeff Guillory NP, Ray Magauran MD, and John Tenny MD, among others.The OpenEMR 5.0 release boasts many features unrelated to meaningful use. Modernization was the theme, which includes a new logo and website, www.open-emr.org(link is external). A major enhancement in this release is the sleek user interface, geared towards efficient workflow. “I have used OpenEMR for seven years. The new user interface makes the life of providers simpler and easier, with fast retrieval and entering of patient information in a single screen, while supporting a robust feature set,” said OpenEMR user Dr. Arnab Naha MBBS.Another enhancement is a feature-packed Ophthalmology/Optometry module, designed and built by Ray Magauran MD, a practicing Ophthalmologist. “As ophthalmologists, we need a product that matches our workflows, doesn’t slow us down or cost an arm and a leg. My clinic is now paperless. We have moved into the cloud,” said OpenEMR volunteer developer, Ray Magauran MD.This release brings enhancements in the patient tracker, reporting, scheduling, billing, security, and form validation modules. Internationalization of OpenEMR was enhanced by adding support for right to left languages to the already included 33 languages. Enterprise use of OpenEMR was strengthened by upgrading the MySQL database engine to InnoDB. Accessibility for OpenEMR developers was improved by migrating the codebase repository from Sourceforge to Github, which allows for efficient, coordinated development.The OpenEMR community remains committed to continued support and improvement of the OpenEMR product. “The last year has been a golden age for OpenEMR with increasing active development and a broadening community of developers, users, volunteers, professionals, and OpenEMR champions. As OpenEMR continues to improve and needs for OpenEMR increases, I expect OpenEMR’s successes to continue into the future,” said OpenEMR project co-administrator Brady Miller MD.About OpenEMR OpenEMR was originally released as an open source project in 2002 and is maintained and supported by a vibrant community of volunteers and professionals.

Chikungunya cases in the Caribbean top 33,000The Caribbean chikungunya outbreak grew by 3,499 cases in the past week, reaching 33,260 suspected, probable, or confirmed cases, according to an update today from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). The case count is up from 29,761 in the agency’s Apr 22 report.Martinique continues to report the largest numbers, with 17,630 suspected (up from 16,000) and 1,515 confirmed or probable cases, the ECDC said. Guadeloupe reported the second-most cases, with 6,000 suspected and 1,328 confirmed or probable cases. The French side of St. Martin is third, with 3,030 suspected and 793 confirmed or probable cases.Also reporting cases are Dominica, 1,063 suspected and 98 confirmed cases; the Dominican Republic, 767 suspected and 17 confirmed cases; St. Barthelemy, 480 suspected and 135 confirmed or probable cases; the Dutch side of St. Martin, 301 confirmed cases; French Guiana, 36 confirmed locally acquired and 18 imported cases; Anguilla, 33 locally acquired confirmed cases and 1 likely imported; British Virgin Islands, 9 confirmed cases; St. Vincent and the Grenadines, 3 cases; and Aruba, St. Lucia, and St. Kitts and Nevis, each with 1 confirmed case.The chikungunya outbreak is the first known in the Americas and began in December 2013 on the French side of St. Martin. So far 6 outbreak deaths have been confirmed, 3 on the French side of St. Martin, 2 on Martinique, and 1 on Guadeloupe.Apr 28 ECDC update Scientists propose alternate origins for 1918 pandemic flu virusThe 1918 H1N1 pandemic influenza virus may have originated from reassortment between a human flu virus lineage and an avian flu virus, researchers speculate today after conducting a phylogenetic evolutionary analysis. The findings run contrary to previous estimates of the virus’s evolution.US and UK researchers analyzed full-length gene sequences from human, bird, and swine viruses over the years involving H1, H2, H5, and N1 subtypes, according to their study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Their results indicate that human H1 (the “H” is for the hemagglutinin [HA] protein) emerged from an avian source well before 1918 but after 1895. They also noted that the classic swine flu lineage is nested completely within the 1918 genetic diversity of human H1 but the seasonal human H1 HA line is only distantly related to the pandemic 1918 HA.”This pattern indicates that the swine influenza lineage emerged directly from the human pandemic virus but that postpandemic seasonal H1N1 did not,” they write. “Rather, there is strong phylogenetic evidence that it descended from a distinct H1 lineage that shared a common ancestor with the 1918 pandemic ~1907.””These results are consistent with an avian-to-human movement of H1 in the first decade of the 20th century,” the authors conclude. They say their theory fits with the age-related pattern of extensive morality in 20- to 40-year-olds, because people that age would have been primarily exposed to an H3N8 virus, which would afford little cross-immunity.Previously, predictions that the 1918 strain was of avian origin and did not reassort with a human strain have predominated.Apr 28 Proc Natl Acad Sci abstract CIDRAP overview on pandemic influenza, which includes 1918-origin theories
AUBURN — The “Rhino package” may be no more.The tackle-heavy personnel group, which utilized Gabe Wright and Montravius Adams at end for the season opener with Arkansas may not rear its head again as Auburn closes the season with Samford, Alabama and a bowl game.“We may have to at some point in time but right now it’s the depth at tackle,” Auburn defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said. “We got them rotating in there at tackle, (Jeff) Whitaker’s been out the last two weeks and feel like that four-way rotation’s more important to us.”Wright and Adams have each been more productive while on the inside. Whitaker has a “nerve issue” in his back and his status moving forward is unclear.Johnson said ends DaVonte Lambert and Elijah Daniel each did pretty well against Georgia, though Auburn is still searching for pass rush.“We’ve got four ends right now that have been playing pretty consistent so we haven’t moved (Wright and Adams) back out there,” Johnson said. “But it’s a double whammy; if we move them out there we’re losing some depth at tackle.”

It’s been a banner week for two Nelson Minor Hockey grads, Reece and Dryden Hunt.Reece Hunt, playing this season with the Okanagan Hockey Academy, was named to the shortlist for the Team BC Female U18 Canada Winter Games Team while older brother Dryden earned an assist for the Florida Panthers during Monday’s NHL game in Ottawa against the Senators.BC Hockey released the shortlist of players for the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, February 23 to March 3, 2019. Hunt, one of 26 players chosen to attend the camp in Penticton December 20-23, was part of Team BC at the 2017 National Women’s Under-18 Hockey Championships in Quebec City. The players invited based on their performance at the 2018 Female U18 Provincial Camp held in August in Shawnigan Lake, BC and in-season evaluations.“We are excited to announce the 26 players selected to continue the process for Team BC,” says Female Program of Excellence (POE) Coordinator Whitney Juszkiewicz. “Every year the skill and competition for Team BC has improved, which is a testament to female hockey in BC and the Yukon.”Meanwhile, in the Nation’s Capital, Hunt recorded his second assist of his NHL career when he tossed a high pass to a streaking Jared McCann to give the Panthers a 3-1 lead in a 7-5 victory.Hunt was recalled Monday by the Panthers from Florida’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Springfield Thunderbirds.Hunt, 22, has appeared 15 games with the Thunderbirds this season, registering 12 points (8-4-12). The 6-foot, 191-pound Nelson Minor Hockey product is ranked second on the Thunderbirds in goals and led the team with four power-play goals.He played in 11 career NHL games with Florida (2017-18), registering one assist before Monday’s helper.Wednesday, during a 7-3 loss to Tampa Bay Lightning, Hunt saw more than 10 minutes of ice time.
