"Many health systems leveraged on-demand virtual visits to triage patients and facilitate testing during the COVID-19 pandemic. But these organizations quickly realized that virtual care would also play a large role in providing ongoing care to existing patients. In this webinar, you’ll hear how two health systems rapidly scaled their telehealth programs to keep delivering care while brick-and-mortar locations remained closed.
Penn State Health, a multi-hospital health system in central Pennsylvania, onboarded more than 800 providers onto its virtual platform to provide ongoing care in several specialties. Norman Regional Health System in Oklahoma went from having one specialist using telehealth to nearly 200 and saw a threefold month-over-month increase in scheduled virtual visits."Find out more »

"Characterizing petroleum as it is found in the environment as Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) can take on a variety of meanings depending on the method used and how the TPH result is derived. Petroleum hydrocarbons comprise a vast array of chemical constituents and encompass several compounds classes, volatility ranges, and risk levels; many of which require specific detection and quantification techniques. Matching that complexity is the numerous ways in which TPH might be expressed, carrying designations such as: GRO, DRO, EPH, HEM, EPH, and/or VPH.
With a wide variety of analytical options available, covering the numerous classifications, it falls to the end user to determine which flavor is right for their particular project and which analytical solution will work best.
In this presentation we attempt to shift through the array of acronyms, methodologies, and TPH categories to provide the end users with a clearer definition of what TPH is, how it is defined, how it is measured and quantified, and provide insight into the complexities of characterizing petroleum releases as they relate to the environmental sample analysis.
A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation. At the conclusion of each webinar, you will be asked for your feedback and opinions for future webinar topics to be developed by Eurofins Environment Testing America (EETA)."Find out more »

"The rapid adoption of new technologies such as DevOps, IoT and Containers along with the further reliance on cloud infrastructures has created new exposure points for cyberattacks. The digital transformation initiatives being implemented to improve the patient experience leverage these emerging technologies, but comprehensive protection of the sensitive data at the core of these security solutions is lacking. Encryption plays a key role in any security strategy.
The defenses against a cyberattack will continue to be tested and the inevitable will happen. It’s not if, but when a data breach or theft occurs. Encryption provides that last line of defense and protects the data in whatever environment a new technology is deployed."Find out more »
"Microplastics in the environment are fast coming into focus as we are beginning to understand just how far these man-made products have infiltrated ecosystems and food chains alike.
Contamination in our waterways, air and food (e.g. bottled water) from these microplastics (1 micron to 5 mm in size) is gaining significant public interest due mainly to their emergence as an environmental and potential human health threat. While regulators are trying to understand the extent and toxicity of the problem, researchers and analytical methods bodies are working towards standardized analytical solutions to best characterize these particles.
Mid-infrared and Raman spectroscopy are fast emerging as leading techniques for this work. They are non-destructive and effective, and while they have benefits over traditional methods, neither method is fast or easy."Find out more »
