Future of Healthcare Needs Global Standardizaion of Care: Expert Panel at Davos

DAVOS, Switzerland and ABU DHABI, Saudi Arabia, January 22, 2017 / —

Healthcare leaders from the US and UAE discuss the Hospital of the Future at the World Economic Forum 

“The management and delivery of healthcare in the hospital of the future will be driven by big data and powered by artificial intelligence and this trend is going to get bigger and better,” according to the panel of experts that discussed the ‘Hospital of the Future’ at the concluding day of the 47th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum at the Congress Centre in Davos.

The panelists in the discussion included Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, Founder & Managing Director of VPS Healthcare; Sean Duffy, Co-founder & CEO of Omada Health; Dr. Elizabeth Nabel, President of Brigham and Women’s Healthcare; Thomas DeRosa, CEO of Welltower USA; Sarah Doherty, Co-founder & Chief Technology Officer of TeleHealthRobotics and Dr. David B. Agus, Professor of Medicine & Engineering at the University of Southern California.

Noting significant transformations affecting the world and the advances made in healthcare, the panel was tasked to find answers about the emerging technologies that would impact the way of healthcare delivery in the future. Dr. Shamsheer said, “As almost every expert agrees, data is the new oil, the new currency and healthcare industry is already using this and moving towards sustainable, accessible and affordable delivery model.”

With the advancements in technology, it is imperative that digital health records be standardized and the interoperability of data is going to play a major role in the future of healthcare delivery.

“We would like to take healthcare delivery systems as much in to the homes and in to the communities as possible because we believe we can deliver better care at lower costs. If you believe in value-based healthcare, the definition being patient measured outcomes defined by cost. We believe that outcomes will be better delivered in the homes and communities rather than hospitals,” said Dr. Elizabeth Nabel.

Healthcare industry has been a bit slower to embrace the digital revolution as compared to others. There is a lack of uniformity across technology systems and these self-created silos are creating confusion, errors, redundancy, missed opportunities, and waste.

“The healthcare industry is very risk averse because of the issues of quality and safety. There has to be some disruption in the industry but I believe the disruption in healthcare will come from outside the industry because we still tend to think very conventionally. We need to come up with new ideas, new technologies that will lead to disruptions else we won’t see a hospital of the future. We need a change across the globe, a change which can make things work,” added Dr. Shamsheer.

Digitization continues to be at the heart of change in healthcare delivery and has led to the introduction of complex technical systems across the globe.

“Privacy is going to be a big issue because of cyber security. We need to encrypt data. As we know, a single stolen EHR is valued at 100 times that of a stolen credit card, so we need to be careful about online security,” said Dr. Shamsheer.  

On the curative side, hospitals & clinics are becoming increasingly aware of the pivotal role of hospitality & service culture in the patient experience and the impact on the bottom-line. On the preventive & recovery side, hotels & resorts are increasingly improving their health & wellness services for their guests.

“It is an exciting time to be in healthcare. Medicine is becoming more democratized and patients are already pushing health systems to innovate and to collaborate with them,” said Sean Duffy.

“The hospital of the future will only be used for catastrophic care with individuals using the quantified self with sophisticated artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to create the best possible scenarios for their health. I for one, am excited to be a part of this brave new world and believe that a broad based revolution in healthcare is just on the horizon,” added Dr. Shamsheer.

eProseed to Support 11th MENA Regulatory Summit

eProseed will participate as a Supporting Partner in the 11th MENA Regulatory Summit on February 5th & 6th in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The summit will cover the main topical challenges faced by the regulatory authorities and the GRC community, a debate in which eProseed has a pivotal role to play as the publisher of FSIP, a comprehensive financial supervision solution dedicated to Central Banks, Financial Regulators and Supervisory Authorities.

Capellen, Luxembourg, January 22, 2017 –/– The 11th MENA Regulatory Summit will take place in Dubai, UAE, in association with the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) and under the patronage of H.E. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, the UAE Minister of Economy. Formerly known as the GCC Regulators’ Summit, the event has been renamed in an effort to ensure the utmost involvement of the governance, risk and compliance (GRC) community across the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region, and to expand the dialogue to neighboring countries that share the same topical risk challenges and regulatory outlook.

“With increasing demands from many international regulatory bodies, financial supervisory authorities are required to monitor the compliance of their financial institutions against numerous new national and international requirements. In the MENA region, the recent macroeconomic developments have also triggered an unprecedented demand for collection of high precision data at high frequency from all financial institutions to support a better risk based supervision,” comments Geoffroy de Lamalle, Chief Executive Officer of eProseed.

MENA: an increasing role in global compliance and combating financial crime

The 11th MENA Regulatory Summit will be attended and supported by regional and international regulators, financial services professionals, law practitioners, advisors and market players. The participants will highlight the recent macroeconomic developments in the MENA region including the US election, Brexit aftermath, regional regulatory responses to the financial crisis, the digital revolution in financial services, block chain technology, and crowd funding.

The speakers will set the landscape for international anti-financial crime trends, FATF perspective on terrorist financing and emergent types of financial crimes, and the dangers of withdrawal of correspondent banking relationships. Panelists will also discuss trade-based money laundering and trade finance activities, compliance culture, business conduct, business ethics, and compliance conflicts.

Online Women’s Community Opening Its Doors

(1888PressRelease) January 22, 2017 – Portland, OR, USA – A new concept in online communities will soon be accepting applications for membership. BeFab Revolution (http://www.befabrevolution.com), the online community for women age 50 plus, will open its doors to founding members between January 25 and February 1, 2017. Membership will be open world-wide during this period for any woman meeting the age requirements.

“This is the first community to offer members direct access to credentialed experts (doctors, authors, speakers, industry insiders) on the many topics that women over 50 care about,” says BeFab Founder Gretchen Asher. “Finally, as a woman you have one reliable place where you can get real answers from a bioidentical hormone doctor, watch a webinar about re-coding your brain to achieve your dreams, and discuss what you learned about dealing with a younger boss– all from your sofa.”

Experts for the community have emerged from around the globe, providing an international and multicultural experience for members that is also unique. While currently member resources are available only in English, the community welcomes women from all over the world.

BeFab Revolution is already using language to change the narrative. The tagline, “We are not our mother’s generation” speaks to women who live in the new millennium, who have been found to be the healthiest, wealthiest and most vibrant generation of women over 50 ever. Yet BeFab and fans believe that even now, misinformation, underhanded marketing, and the perpetuation of the classic narrative pervade society. Writes fan Deirdre, “Fabulous Gretchen! Such important work empowering these women to show up in their magnificence. I love it. So much wisdom to be shared with the world. And you are the one to facilitate that now. Yuhooo!” Deirdre, like many women, is ready to show up.

The community itself is billed partly as a celebration of how wrong the old narrative is and how important it is to find knowledge and positivity. Gretchen blogs of her own experience with a marketing executive who once told her women over 50 are irrelevant and not fabulous. “We are fabu-LOUS, not fabu-LESS” is a central tenet of the community, and there is laserfocus on loving- or learning to love- this stage of life. Writes one enthusiast on social media, “Turning 51 in April. Need all the advice I can get.”

“Gaining knowledge from experts and having my questions and concerns addressed makes me feel very empowered,” Gretchen notes. “In this Third Act of life, we still have so many new directions to take and opportunities to reinvent ourselves. We ARE fabulous!”

In line with the latest paradigm in self-sustaining socially-responsible business, BeFab will charge a nominal fee to cover costs. Founding membership is set at $18 per month, and the price will be locked in as long as a member remains in good standing. After February 1, membership will be closed until later this year, when membership fees will increase in accordance with the additional content available.

Founding members in this new online community concept will also get a special opportunity: Setting the tone for the community as it blossoms. This can be anything from seeding the discussions on the secret Facebook group to taking the opportunity to ask questions of the experts who present to them via webcast. “As the first members from the public, founding members will have a big say in the directions BeFab will take,” says Gretchen.

New York, NY, January 20, 2017 –(PR.com)– WAVELENGTH II: New Consumerism
Fashion x Art group exhibition
On view at 312 Bowery Street, New York, NY 10012
Thursday, February 9, 2017 – Wednesday, February 15, 2017

WAVELENGTH II proudly presents the recent work of 18 contemporary artists and designers active in the US, Europe and China. By bringing together conceptual fashion pieces, visual arts, jewelry, sculpture and multimedia installations, the exhibition illustrates a global trend in consumerism and lifestyle – the integration of Art, Fashion and social life.

Consumers are reassessing their priorities and reflecting on their lifestyle: what they truly value through the act of purchasing. Many artists and designers, as opinion shapers, have actively involved in this wave of revolution.

“WAVELENGTH II” depicts for the increasing prominence of aesthetics, sustainability and authenticity. It reveals a trend evolving towards the elimination of boundaries between art and design – “the work” is treated as a vehicle of concept regardless of functionality or categorization. Garments and jewelry pieces are indistinguishable from sculptures or installations, rising above the status conveyed by “label” or “possession.”

Meanwhile, the exhibition is infused with daily life aspects. Applicable technologies such as biochemistry, digital rendering and facial recognition have been incorporated into creation process. Artists reveal their fascination in everyday objects and pop culture, embracing, ridiculing or simply making observations of consumerist society. Nothing concludes better than a large scale embroidery made entirely by hand with traditional French technique, yet full of emojis and contemporary art references.

Apart from artwork display, “WAVELENGTH II” consists of a pop-up store space within the gallery and a week of events including panel discussions and workshops. Bringing together Art and Fashion exhibitions, designer boutiques and social gatherings, it creates a sensational experience for future consumers to whom art appreciation is an integral part of life.

Cohosted by CUBE NYC and VO Art Union, the exhibition will tour to Beijing in summer 2017. Being accommodated in Times Museum, it will openly discuss the exchange between different cultures against the backdrop of a global trend.

Qualcomm Comments on Apple Complaint

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — “While we are still in the process of reviewing the complaint in detail, it is quite clear that Apple’s claims are baseless. Apple has intentionally mischaracterized our agreements and negotiations, as well as the enormity and value of the technology we have invented, contributed and shared with all mobile device makers through our licensing program. Apple has been actively encouraging regulatory attacks on Qualcomm’s business in various jurisdictions around the world, as reflected in the recent KFTC decision and FTC complaint, by misrepresenting facts and withholding information. We welcome the opportunity to have these meritless claims heard in court where we will be entitled to full discovery of Apple’s practices and a robust examination of the merits,” said Don Rosenberg, executive vice president and general counsel, Qualcomm Incorporated.

Continuing the Struggle of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Now is the time for a new, peaceful American Revolution. Join us.

A UMass study found that 38% of Americans can’t meet basic needs, about double the official poverty rate. But African Americans have been most severely disadvantaged by an economic system serving well a small elite at the expense of the majority. 27.6% of African Americans live in poverty, 12.8% in deep poverty. 38% of African American children live in poverty. African Americans have 1/20 the per capita wealth of whites. Unemployment rates in black communities rival those in the Third World.
N FT MYERS, Fla.Jan. 20, 2017PRLog — The election of Barack Obama to the presidency was an important milestone toward racial equality, but this milestone is blocking our view of how far we still have to go.


High levels of poverty are intrinsic to the process resulting in extreme income and wealth in a small elite. 400 Americans’ total wealth equals that of the least wealthy 195 million. We are all harmed by this degree of inequality. It would not exist in a truly democratic republic. Our “democracy deficit” is quantified: A three-decade, 1,779 policy issue study on the influence on policymakers of average American’s policy change preferences, including those that would reduce inequality, found it is zero.

Dr. King was dedicated to the struggle for justice, not just racial justice, and he viewed economic inequality as one of the most important issues of his time. Since his time, economic inequality has substantially increased. Dr. King based his actions on the words he expressed below. How many of us can see it is even more important to do so now as passionately as Dr. King did?

“Most of us are too poor to have adequate economic power … Necessity will draw us toward the power inherent in the creative uses of politics.”

“Injustice and waste go together and endanger stability.”

“We have so energetically mastered production that we now must give attention to distribution.”

“When evil men conspire to preserve an unjust social order, good men must unite to bring about the birth of a society undergirded by justice.”

“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable … Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle, the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”

34 public policies can lift tens of millions of Americans out of poverty; substantially improve the standard of living of tens of millions more; fundamentally improve our election and lobbying systems; enhance democracy with an innovative, new democratic system; create a $500 billion annual federal surplus; increase GDP by $1.8 trillion.
