How to Avoid Big Mistakes in Big Data

How to Avoid Big Mistakes in Big Data | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
Businesses are eager to acquire the latest technology, but the hidden reality is that achieving intended goals is not guaranteed.
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

As a result, the rush to keep up with other companies can lead to fundamental mistakes that cause big data projects to go awry. A recent survey of IT professionals revealed that 42 percent had experienced a big data project failure.

 

Putting as much emphasis on obtaining the best data scientists as on obtaining the latest technology will provide you with a powerful capability that will return significant dividends on your investment. And it will create a competitive advantage your rivals will be unable to match.

French pharma growth restricted by generics

French pharma growth restricted by generics | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
New analysis finds country’s market value will grow only modestly in the coming years
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

Interesting shake up for French Pharma. Biotech in France however looks healthier I think. 
I suggest that a response would be greater customer engagement beyond the pill to create the value to the end user, as well as methods to prove efficacy and better outcomes.

The digital pill is where the creative French Pharmas will be taking their products and beating off the generics.

Technology drives safety and innovation for retail pharmacy

Technology drives safety and innovation for retail pharmacy | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
A growing number of retail pharmacies are looking to automation technology as they expand their businesses beyond lick, stick, and pour.
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

Opportunities to improve outcomes now implicate all players in the value chain from R&D, manufacturing,, distribution all the way to the pharmacy, and of course finally the patient themselves.

 

As we all become intrinsically part of this end-to-end value chain with measurable outcomes integrating all of the point solutions and technologies as well as managing all the many data points and their sources becomes the challenge.

 

Pharmacies are working their way into the health value chain more and more, and as the pharmacy redefines itself, it can also be the value-add component at the touch-point with the patient supported by technology.

Why Healthcare Reform Hinges on Data

Why Healthcare Reform Hinges on Data | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
Performance accountability has become a core element of healthcare reform, including a focus on measurement.
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

Today, healthcare providers' performance is measured in a variety of ways, including by regulators, peers and patients. However, as healthcare reform increasingly ties measured performance to accountability and payment, ever-increasing clinical measurements have added to the burden of assembling the information needed for reporting.

Data is the pivot point.

Independent Research Firm Names CSC a “Leader” in Managed Security Services Report | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
CSC has been positioned by Forrester Research Inc. as a “Leader” in its report, “The Forrester WaveTM: Managed Security Services: North America, Q4 2014.”
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

Security services are an area that can be outsourced to provide a much better level of service at less cost, by leveraging the infrastructure and capabilities of a managed service model. 

This is particularly pertinent for life sciences organisations where outsourcing and verticalisation is the trend and the need to protect assets most effectively is paramount.

FDA Issues Draft Guidance on General Wellness Devices and on Medical Device Accessories | The National Law Review

FDA Issues Draft Guidance on General Wellness Devices and on Medical Device Accessories | The National Law Review | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
On January 16, 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted a draft guidance document outlining the FDA’s proposed approach to the regulation of general wellness devices (D
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

This is important guidance from the FDA for those of us that are involved in the wider health spectrum and indeed any of our customers that are looking to open up their consumer businesses as part of the wider value chain in wellness. Their own summary is sufficient:

Key Takeaways

The Draft Accessories Guidance is notable in that the FDA indicates its willingness to apply a different level of regulatory scrutiny to certain medical device accessories—including, potentially, mobile applications that support, supplement or augment a parent medical device—than it does to the parent device itself.  The draft guidance does not provide any specific examples of how this process might apply to health IT products, however, and puts the onus on manufacturers to file a regulatory de novo petition with the FDA to seek “a risk-based classification of new types of accessories.”  Therefore, the extent to which the draft guidance heralds a change in the FDA’s regulatory position remains to be seen.
