"Cytokine storm syndrome (CSS) in an umbrella term for a potentially fatal immune response associated with a variety of conditions and triggers. It is known by many names, including macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) when associated with rheumatic diseases, or familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) as a genetic condition that most often affect infants. Many common forms of CSS are often triggered by infections, particularly viruses, of which Covid-19 appears to be included. In this webinar, Dr. Randy Cron will discuss criteria for identifying CSS in patients, complications, and available treatments which include glucocorticoids, but also targeted therapies that dampen pro-inflammatory cytokines like interleukin-1 (IL-1) and IL-6."Find out more »

"Over the past few months, there has been an explosion of analytics across healthcare. The COVID-19 crisis created an extreme urgency for insights from analytics in virtually every healthcare organization. Health systems and hospitals have been grappling with how to get basic reporting of operational statistics such as screening test results and ICU census. Analytics departments struggle to create predictive models of patients most at risk for needing an ICU bed or other advanced care. And staffing and supply chain analytics became more of need than ever before to prepare for focusing capacity needs.
The immediacy of the needs and diversity of interest creates an analytics chaos. To create clarity, healthcare organizations must accelerate the need to move analytics workloads to the cloud and couple it with data governance to truly provide value."Find out more »
"In the June 2019 ANIA webinar Expanding Nursing Faculty's Informatics Competencies Dr. Elkind and Dr. Mayhew discussed the need for professional development for nursing faculty throughout the curricula. It is essential that it be incorporated across all levels (undergraduate and graduate) to meet the challenge of preparing nurses to function safely and effectively in our contemporary, high tech healthcare environment. Then along came COVID-19, which has necessitated nursing faculty to use innovative technologies and new strategies in course design. Faculty must seek out emerging resources, available technologies, and engage in professional development. During this webinar we will explore how to keep the momentum going to meet the evolving nursing educational challenges presented by COVID-19."Find out more »
Struggling to manage the data in your laboratory? Can’t easily find the data you need? Thinking of moving from paper to an on-line system? This webinar will answer many of your questions about what a laboratory informatics management system (LIMS) is, and how it can transform your laboratory and efficiency.
Key discussion points include:
Despite LIMS solutions being available for over 30 years many smaller laboratories, as well as new start-ups, still use paper and pen to record test results and report on them. This webinar will show you how you can start small with a LIMS and extend it as your business grows. Sign up today.

"Patient privacy is brought to light when we talk about Machine Learning (ML) in Healthcare. The main reason for that is the large data demand of ML models. How should we deal with these issues? Data de-identification is much more probabilistic than binary. What other tools do we have at hand to deal with these issues? Among many other tools, Federated Learning (FL) is one of them. At its early stages, FL and differential privacy can help move the field forward.
After attending this webinar, the attendee should be able to:
* Understand the concepts behind federated learning and differential privacy
* Describe how Federated Training is setup
* List the limitations of this technique"
