WASHINGTON, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Partnership to Improve Patient Care (PIPC) and Bloomberg Government today co-hosted "Achieving Patient-Centered CER: Looking Ahead to 2013," a forum on how implementation of patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER) is progressing at the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). After opening remarks by PIPC Chairman Tony Coelho, Dr. Joe Selby, the executive director of PCORI, gave a keynote speech and Brian Rye, healthcare analyst with Bloomberg Government, moderated a panel discussion with healthcare leaders and patient advocates.
Bloomberg Government and PIPC held the forum to discuss how PCORI is developing a patient-centered CER program, with focused attention on how input from stakeholders, including patients and providers, is being incorporated in PCORI's research priorities. PCORI was established to produce and promote comparative clinical effectiveness research that is responsive to the research gaps identified by patients, physicians, and providers, with the ultimate goal of helping people make better informed healthcare decisions. The forum brought together key stakeholders to help provide PCORI with information from the patient perspective, along with insightful solutions on how to best achieve patient-centered CER.
"Since coming together in 2008, PIPC has been very vocal about our dedication to ensuring that patients are at the center of CER, especially patient communities that are often overlooked in research – such as people with disabilities, minority communities and the elderly," said Tony Coelho. "We have shown great support for PCORI and we continue to stay focused on determining ways to incorporate input from patients and providers that will shape PCORI's work in a meaningful way and produce research that patients see as most pressing."
Participants on the panel included Marc M. Boutin with the National Health Council, Donna R. Cryer, a patient advocate, Mark Horn with Target Health and David Introcaso, a healthcare policy consultant.
The Partnership to Improve Patient Care was formed in November 2008 to support proposals to expand the government's role in comparative effectiveness research that are centered on patient and provider needs; raise awareness about the value of well-designed CER; and promote the important role of continued medical innovation as part of the solution to cost and quality challenges in health care. Partnership members include a wide range of health care organizations representing patient advocacy, provider, and industry groups.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
