The Award will be launched in November at the 2016 World of Health IT Conference (WoHIT) in Barcelona, which will gather top European healthcare stakeholders to address best practices, practical solutions and cutting edge developments in the e-Health ecosystem.

Established in 2013, the award has recognized over 60 projects from 57 hospitals across 11 countries from the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions, and has been extended to Europe to further highlight global innovations in healthcare.

All nominations will be reviewed by a diverse panel of judges comprising leading Chief Information Officers (CIO) and healthcare providers from different regions. They are: John Rayner, Regional Director for Europe and Latin America from HIMSS Analytics; Dr Peter Edelstein, Chief Medical Officer of Elsevier Clinical Solutions in the United States; Elena Sini from Humanitas Hospital in Italy; Giovanni Delgrossi, CIO at Vimercate Hospital in Italy; Philippe Kolh, CIO at the CHU in Liege, Belgium; Vicent Moncho Mas, CIO of Hospital de Denia in Spain, and Seamus Mac Suibhne, CCIO at eHealth Ireland, amongst others.

US American Chemical Society celebrates National Nanotechnology Day - 10 Oct 2016

The American Chemical Society (ACS) has launched a nano-focused microsite, highlighting the contributions of chemistry to this field in support of National Nanotechnology Day, which is October 9.

Nanoscience focuses on the truly tiny — science, engineering and technology at the scale of the diameter of a strand of DNA. Working at the nanoscale enables scientists to utilize the unique physical, chemical, mechanical and optical properties of materials that naturally occur at that scale to advance medicine, new materials and even personal care products.

The ACS microsite gathers resources in one place for multiple audiences. Among the resources appearing on the site are education tools for teachers, including lesson plans; ACS “Nano Nuggets,” video profiles of leading chemists sharing where they see nanotechnology going in the future, as well as other videos and podcasts; a white paper for policymakers offering insights about future directions for nanoscience and technology policy; and nanotechnology background information providing context about scientific developments and their societal implications.

Additionally, ACS is sponsoring an Edit-a-thon for Notable Chemists and Chemistry at WikiConference North America, a gathering being held in San Diego from Oct. 7-10. The Society encourages interested wiki editors and nano experts to improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries on nanoscience topics.

A joint project of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office and scientific societies, National Nanotechnology Day will feature a series of community-led events and activities on or around Oct. 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the related challenges and opportunities the future holds. The date pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10-9 meters.

US Outsell releases Information Industry Outlook 2017 report, with the key theme ‘All Data, Nothing But Data’ - 10 Oct 2016

Research and advisory firm Outsell, Inc. has released its Information Industry Outlook 2017 report, with the key theme All Data, Nothing But Data. From individualised medical treatment to targeted mobile ad buys, the burgeoning number of applications for machine driven data analytics solutions offer a revenue goldmine for the $1.5 trillion information industry, according to Outsell, Inc.

For the year ahead, the report highlights data monetization as the number-one growth opportunity for information, media, technology, and any enterprise — from GE to Boeing, Ford to Monsanto — in the business of information.

First shared during Outsell’s 10th Anniversary Signature Event, an off-the-record event for C-level executives, the report highlights 10 important industry trends, with data front and center.

From CivicScience, which produces a syndicated “poll of the day,” to Kensho Technologies, an unstructured data analytics provider in financial services, to Numisight, which helps identify anomalies in a blockchain, “rising stars” are already harnessing this trend and disrupting a broad range of industries. By combining big data with artificial intelligence, the internet of things, machine learning, and robotics, whole verticals like food/agriculture are reinventing themselves and so too are companies in the Fortune 500. Today, everyone is a data provider, user and maker. Outsell’s research and Outlook focuses on this now far-reaching phenomenon.

In recognition of the fundamental shift that data, big and small, is driving, Outsell will also produce its first annual DataMoney Conference February 1-2, 2017 in New York City. Interested parties may visit https://www.outsellinc.com/events/datamoney to register.

US MPIP publishes latest recommendations on improving transparency in clinical trial data disclosures - 10 Oct 2016

Medical Publishing Insights & Practices (MPIP) has announced the publication of its latest recommendations on improving transparency in clinical trial data disclosures in the online issue of The BMJ (doi: 10.1136/bmj.i5078).

Recommendations to Improve Adverse Event Reporting in Clinical Trial Publications: a Joint Pharmaceutical Industry/Journal Editor Perspective is the latest publication from the MPIP collaboration with leading medical journal editors and industry experts. It calls on clinical trial sponsors, authors, and editors to place greater focus on clinically relevant and informative adverse event (AE) reporting, including highlighting AEs of most relevance to practitioners and their patients, avoiding broad summary statements such as “generally safe” or “well-tolerated,” and presenting more detailed AE data (where appropriate) to offer additional clinically important insight.

These recommendations complement the earlier recommendations in the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) Harms Extension, addressing a critical gap identified by editors and authors for more specific guidance regarding clinically meaningful, informative, and transparent reporting of AEs critical for practical application in the clinical setting.

Although developed for industry-sponsored trials, the adoption of these recommendations would enhance AE reporting in clinical research publications regardless of the funding source and would facilitate better clinical decision-making.

Communicating drug AEs in a more transparent and clinically meaningful manner was one of ten key recommendations to improve the credibility of industry-sponsored publications. Industry experts, members of Medical Publishing Insights & Practices (MPIP), and journal editors from several journals came together in 2014 to discuss ways to improve the communication of AE data. This roundtable included editors from American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Annals of Internal Medicine, Canadian Medical Association Journal, Gastroenterology, Gastrointestinal Cancer Research, International Journal of Clinical Practice, Journal of the American Medical Association, Neurology, and The New England Journal of Medicine, as well as industry experts and MPIP members from Amgen, Astellas, AstraZeneca, Biogen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, ISMPP, Janssen Research & Development LLC, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Pfizer, and Takeda.
