"Recommendations for cybersecurity while traveling abroad often sound like they were taken directly from the plot of a spy movie: use clean “throw-away” devices, accounts, and passwords; assume you’ll be compromised. Similar, although slightly less scary, recommendations abound for travelers going on vacation: don’t post your location online; don’t use public WiFi. In this presentation, the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) will provide insight into the targeting, theft, scams, and espionage that have driven the creation of these often-touted recommendations so you can intelligently choose which recommendations are appropriate for your next trip."

"Pharmacogenomics (PGx) studies the associations between discrete variants in single genes and the phenotype for specific aspects of a drug’s pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics. These associations are used to qualify patients for therapy (e.g., CYP2C19 and clopidogrel), to avoid drug-related adverse events (e.g., TPMT and mercaptopurines), and to optimize drug and dose selection (e.g., CYP2D6 and several antidepressants). However, clinical PGx testing based on single gene-drug associations has limited clinical utility when patients take more than one medication. For some drugs, limitations of single gene-drug associations may be mitigated by combining the testing of several pharmacogenes based on single gene-drug associations along with clinical and demographic factors. Emerging evidence shows the benefits of multi-gene panels in clinical PGx testing. This presentation will review examples of single and multi-gene PGx testing applied to drug therapy decisions."

"For healthcare organizations, overcoming challenges around clinical gaps in care, interoperability, data security and regulatory compliance are critical to success. Healthcare technology leaders need to leverage cloud-based solutions to create a unified data ecosystem and develop a well-defined data governance process, in order to make accurate decisions and enhance performance. However, building such solutions has its own set of technology, operational and economic challenges.
Join us for an interesting conversation on how Sentara Healthcare, a leading health system in VA, partnered with CitiusTech and Microsoft to build a robust Enterprise Data Warehouse on Azure, to address key data management challenges across the organization."Find out more »
"Despite years of effort in the pharmaceutical R&D informatics space, many organizations still process their screening data through Excel spreadsheets or home-grown data systems.These organizations likely own TIBCO® Spotfire® which has robust data analysis functionality, but, for various reasons, they do not use it for screening data.
Join our customer, Albany Molecular Research Inc and PerkinElmer to learn how you can overcome challenges with:
- Generating high quality leads fast enough
- Enormous amounts of data generated in different assay formats
- Administrative tasks that take time away from drug discovery"
"This presentation will describe the process and results of a recently completed formal practice analysis of Clinical Informatics conducted by the American Medical Informatics Association in collaboration with the American Board of Preventive Medicine and with the support of the American Board of Pathology. The aim of the practice analysis was to develop a comprehensive and current description of what Clinical Informatics Subspecialty physician diplomates do and what they need to know. The differences between the Clinical Informatics Subspecialty and subsequent Health Informatics practice analyses will also be compared and contrasted."
