If you’re trying to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you know quick fixes like fad diets and risky cleanses aren’t worth your time — but that doesn’t mean everything has to be such a long slog. Something that’s worth your time (and doesn’t take much time anyway): keeping a food journal. New research published in the journal Obesity found the tried-and-true practice of logging what you eat is key to losing weight. In the study, people who recorded calories, fat and portion sizes were more apt to be successful in their weight-loss goals than those who didn’t maintain diet diaries. The biggest finding: The effort took less than 15 minutes per day.

All of us have seen these 'data driven' insights. Some close friends have asked if I have been analyzing the COVID-19 datasets. Yes, I have been looking at these datasets.

The term, “The Cloud,” has become so commonplace that one might ask: “What does it mean and what value can it bring to a healthcare organization’s electronic health record (EHR)?” Without getting too technical, Cloud is a model for delivering IT resources. According to the National Institute of Standards, “Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources … that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.” That is a straightforward definition. There are in fact three service layers, five essential characteristics and four deployment models inherent to the definition. Most healthcare organizations would use the “Private” deployment model. Cloud is a natural evolution in computing brought about by evolving improvement in connectivity and data storage capabilities as a result of improvement in technology. Cloud computing is not new and has existed in many forms over the past 40 years. Remote job entry was the definition in the 1970s and in the 1990s it became “outsourced infrastructure.”
