Mobile health winners will be those who help MDs

Mobile health winners will be those who help MDs | Technology news | Scoop.it

“Ten years from now, we’ll be talking about behavioral change methods, not the technology.”

 

That was a prediction Don Jones, vice president of global strategy and market development for Qualcomm Life, the healthcare connectivity division of San Diego-based telecommunications firm Qualcomm, made Friday at the University of Southern California’s seventh annual Body Computing Conference in Los Angeles.

 

For now, however, digital health is an industry area very much in flux, a young segment looking for its footing, as some other speakers suggested.

 

A lot of money is being lost today in companies that have interesting ideas but lack solid business models, said Wain Fishburn Jr., a partner in Palo Alto, Calif., law firm Cooley LLP. “Ultimately, a ton of money is going to be made on a few big winners,” he said.

 

Those winners will not necessarily be the most innovative in terms of technology, however. Instead, they could represent breakthroughs in process design. “Digital medicine and the approach it’s going to take to healthcare is simply going to amplify the technologies we have and disrupt healthcare,” said Fishburn, who advises Silicon Valley startups.

 

More importantly, according to Oklahoma City cardiologist Dr. David Albert, founder and chief medical officer of smartphone ECG maker AliveCor, digital technologies will help make clinicians more efficient in treating an aging population with conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder.

 

 

“We don’t have enough doctors, we don’t have enough nurses, to treat all of these cases of COPD,” said Albert. Sensors can help make COPD management more like diabetes management, with patients testing and monitoring themselves outside of the doctor’s office. “It won’t be easy,” Albert said, “but the outcomes will be better.”

Extend PostgreSQL and integrate the database layer into your development framework

Understand the extension framework of PostgreSQL, and leverage it in ways that you haven’t even invented yet.

Write functions, create your own data types, all in your favourite programming languageStep-by-step tutorial with plenty of tips and tricks to kick-start server programming.

In Detail

Learn how to work with PostgreSQL as if you spent the last decade working on it. PostgreSQL is capable of providing you with all of the options that you have in your favourite development language and then extending that right on to the database server. With this knowledge in hand, you will be able to respond to the current demand for advanced PostgreSQL skills in a lucrative and booming market.

“PostgreSQL Server Programming” will show you that PostgreSQL is so much more than a database server. In fact, it could even be seen as an application development framework, with the added bonuses of transaction support, massive data storage, journaling, recovery and a host of other features that the PostgreSQL engine provides.

This book will take you from learning the basic parts of a PostgreSQL function, then writing them in languages other than the built-in PL/PgSQL. You will see how to create libraries of useful code, group them into even more useful components, and distribute them to the community. You will see how to extract data from a multitude of foreign data sources, and then extend PostgreSQL to do it natively. And you can do all of this in a nifty debugging interface that will allow you to do it efficiently and with reliability.

What you will learn from this book

Write functions in the built-in PL/PgSQL language or your language of choiceExtract data from foreign data sourcesAdd operators, data types, and other custom elementsDebug and code efficientlyDecide what machine resources your process will useCreate your own data types, operators, functions, aggregates, and even your own languageFully integrate the database layer into your development

Approach

This practical guide leads you through numerous aspects of working with PostgreSQL. Step by step examples allow you to easily set up and extend PostgreSQL.

Who this book is written for

“PostgreSQL Server Programming” is for moderate to advanced PostgreSQL database professionals. To get the best understanding of this book, you should have general experience in writing SQL, a basic idea of query tuning, and some coding experience in a language of your choice

Table of Contents

Chapter 1: What Is a PostgreSQL Server?
Chapter 2: Server Programming Environment
Chapter 3: Your First PL/pgSQL Function
Chapter 4: Returning Structured Data
Chapter 5: PL/pgSQL Trigger Functions
Chapter 6: Debugging PL/pgSQL
Chapter 7: Using Unrestricted Languages
Chapter 8: Writing Advanced Functions in C
Chapter 9: Scaling Your Database with PL/Proxy
Chapter 10: Publishing Your Code as PostgreSQL Extensions

Expose local or remote data as Drupal 7 entities and build custom solutions

Overview

Understand and develop using the entity paradigm and entity metadata wrappersCreate, retrieve, update, and delete (CRUD) operations on all entitiesProgrammatically attach fields to entities and manipulate their dataExpose remote data in a non-fieldable or fieldable entity with support for the import and export of bundle configurationsThorough coverage of common core and contributed entity types along with custom data exposure

In Detail

Writing code for manipulating Drupal data has never been easier! Learn to dice and serve your data as you slowly peel back the layers of the Drupal entity onion. Next, expose your legacy local and remote data to take full advantage of Drupal’s vast solution space.

Programming Drupal 7 Entities is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with a thorough knowledge of Drupal’s entity paradigm and a number of clear step-by-step exercises, which will help you take advantage of the real power that is available when developing using entities.

This book looks at the Drupal 7 entity paradigm, and breaks down the mystery and confusion that developers face when building custom solutions using entities. It will take you through a number of clear, practical recipes that will help you to take full advantage of Drupal entities in your web solutions without muchcoding.

You will also learn how to expose local and remote data to give your legacy data new life as fully-fledged Drupal entities that can be used by other modules such as views, rules, and so on. In addition to this, you’ll learn to create, retrieve, update, and delete (CRUD) entities, their properties and fields, along with some programmatic wizardry to manipulate complex entities such as field collections. If you want to develop quickly and easily using Drupal entities, then this is the book for you.

You will learn everything you need to know to develop code and expose data using entities in Programming Drupal 7 Entities.

What you will learn from this book

Manipulate and utilize comment, file, field collection, node, term, user, and vocabulary entitiesAttach, manipulate, and utilize date, file, image, link, number, text, and term reference fieldsWrite type-agnostic code dealing with more types of Drupal data than ever beforeUpgrade a legacy Drupal node module to expose and utilize entitiesExpose your legacy database tables as fully-fledged Drupal entitiesBatch import remote data and expose them as entitiesGlean good coding practices for dealing with entities

Approach

The book follows a standard tutorial-based approach to create, retrieve, update, and delete Drupal 7 entities, their properties and fields.

Who this book is written for

Programming Drupal 7 Entities is perfect for intermediate or advanced developers new to Drupal entity development who are looking to get a good grounding in how to code using the new paradigm. It’s assumed that you will have some experience in PHP development already, and being vaguely familiar with Drupal, GIT, and Drush will also help.
