BOSTON, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CompuGroup Medical US (CGM) is proud to announce that CGM ENTERPRISE™, its ICD-10 enabled market leading practice management software suite for community health and beyond, has been selected as a software solution for the implementation of a healthcare quality collaborative headed by the San Jose Clinic in Houston, Texas. The collaborative, formally known as the Shared Quality Program is comprised of two other facilities: Christ Clinic and TOMAGWA Charity Clinic.
Funded by a Grant received from the Community Clinics Funders' Collaborative, the goal of the Shared Quality Program is to facilitate the capture and tracking of key healthcare quality indicators after metrics have been established for workflow processes and patient care. The collaborative was formed out of the necessity to achieve economies of scale by pooling the resources of the clinics together for the purpose of reporting on improvements, as they pursue the goals of the quality program. With over 90% of their income attributed to philanthropy, utilizing the expertise of a full-time quality project director based at the San Jose Clinic, across all three facilities serves as an added advantage.
As one of the nation's oldest safety net clinics and a leading provider of quality healthcare services for individuals and families in the Greater Houston area, the San Jose Clinic lends its expertise and reputation as a pioneer to the collaborative. Having benefited from the robust reporting tools that CGM Enterprise has to offer to practice management, the clinic recommended it as an appropriate solution to its collaborative partners. CGM Enterprise supports maximum practice management as well as billing efficiency and effectiveness. With comprehensive tools that meet several reporting requirements, this software solution demonstrates versatility, tailored to the needs of Community Health.
Paule Ann Lewis, President and CEO, San Jose Clinic said, "This collaboration means a lot not only to the clinics involved but also to our safety net system. It provides us with a great example of truly collaborating and streamlining operations among clinics that have limited resources. With CGM as our software partner, we are confident that this collaborative will be a success."
Commenting on the Shared Quality Program, CEO of CGM US and Senior Vice President North America, Norbert Fischl said, "Building on our strong customer base and market share in the community health segment, we are proud that San Jose Clinic has recommended our solution to its partners. It confirms our approach of being local and close to our customers, offering excellence in software solutions and services. We are thrilled that our practice management solution is contributing to the successful implementation of a quality initiative that will go a long way to improve efficiency of healthcare delivery and enhance health outcomes for vulnerable populations, the under insured as well as the uninsured. CompuGroup Medical is proud to serve these exemplary healthcare organizations as a health software partner."

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

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.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
