Uncover Ways YOU Can Position Your Lab as a Strategic Pillar of the Healthcare Organization

darkdaily

In many healthcare organizations, the lab is often viewed as the black box orders come in, results come out. Reasons may vary from leadership not understanding the complexities of the lab, not understanding the breadth of accessibility or impact of the lab in other areas of the organization or simply because the percent revenue made from the lab or spend is not impactful. More broadly, laboratory leadership does not connect the critical activities of the lab to the strategic imperatives of the organization as a whole.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most common multifactorial diseases, including a range of abnormal cellular/molecular processes occurring in different regions of the brain. This disease is considered to be a major contributor to dementia in elderly people. The pathophysiology involves the accumulation of extracellular plaques containing the β-amyloid protein which is generated by the breakdown of the β-amyloid precursor protein (APP) in the brain. Another mechanism involves the formation of intracellular neurofibrillary tangles of hyperphosphorylated tau protein. The AD can be classified into two types, familial AD (FAD) and sporadic AD (SAD) based on heritability apart from this the early-onset AD (EOAD) and late-onset AD (LOAD) forms are based on the age of onset.

Nurses are expected to do more with less, to work long hours, and to deliver high standard of care. Government regulations, state laws and the threat of litigation lingering require that nurses remain knowledgeable of the latest and most current information that affects their clinical practice and be aware of the legal implication of documentation in the medical record regardless whether it is an electronic format or handwritten. Understanding the legal implications of health care is frequently stated Its not if you get sued but when you get sued.There has been an increase in the number of malpractice cases in part, due to an increased awareness of patients' and consumers' rights. Nurses have to bear heavy responsibilities. Failure to fulfill these responsibilities may result in allegations of negligence that can lead to malpractice lawsuits. Allegations of negligence can arise against a nurse from almost any action or failure to act that result in patient injury. This information addresses related laws and regulations, malpractice, and ways of preventing malpractice allegations by defining the relevant issues nurses are facing in health care on a daily basis.

Achieving Operational Excellence through Smart Manufacturing in Medical Devices

MedTech Intelligence

Medical manufactures, can access a specially tailored digital infrastructure from Siemens for the MD&D industry called “Operational Excellence through Smart Manufacturing”. This means to develop a digital infrastructure by using production digital twins to design and simulate manufacturing scenarios, schedule and execute production, enforcing routes, quality inspections to deliver high quality devices. This is also an approach for the small- to medium-sized businesses (SMB), the new emerging market leaders, aiming at creating the same digital infrastructure of their larger competitors to get their own innovation to market, rapidly, cost-efficiently and in compliance with high quality standards international regulatory authorities require.
