US Elsevier publishes updated version of Foodborne Diseases and announces four additional food science books - 17 Feb 2017

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of an updated version of Foodborne Diseases, edited by Christine Dodd, Tim Aldsworth and Richard Stein. The foundational reference offers a practical understanding of diseases to help researchers and scientists manage foodborne illnesses and prevent and control outbreaks. Also, Elsevier has announced four additional food science books.

Foodborne Diseases, Third Edition, covers the ever-changing complex issues that have emerged in the food industry during the past decade. It includes new topics such as bacterial, fungal, parasitic and viral foodborne diseases; chemical toxicants; risk-based control measures; virulence factors of microbial pathogens that cause disease; epigenetics and foodborne pathogens; nanotechnology; bioterrorism and the use of foodborne pathogens; antimicrobial resistance; and antibiotic resistance.

The five new food science titles include: Foodborne Diseases, Third Edition by Christine Dodd, Tim Aldsworth and Richard Stein; Cereal Grains: Assessing and Managing Quality, Second Edition by Colin Wrigley, Ian Batey and Diane Miskelly; Wine Tasting: A Professional Handbook, Third Edition by Ronald S. Jackson; The Vitamins: Fundamental Aspects in Nutrition and Health, Fifth Edition by Gerald F. Combs, Jr. and James P. McClung; and Nutraceutical and Functional Food Components: Effects of Innovative Processing Techniques by Charis M. Galanakis.

In order to meet content needs in food science, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. The new books, which will educate the next generation of food scientists, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

US Wolters Kluwer moves 175 customers and migrates nearly 1M procedure notes from EndoWorks to ProVation MD - 17 Feb 2017

The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced that its roster of EndoWorks conversions to ProVation MD® for Gastroenterology (GI) continues to grow exponentially in advance of Olympus' departure from the endowriter market. Among the 175 healthcare organisations that moved from EndoWorks to Wolters Kluwer's gastroenterology structured reporting software in 2016 was Tampa General Hospital, whose 25 GI physicians are benefiting from streamlined documentation and accelerated workflows.

More than 260 healthcare organisations have transitioned to ProVation MD for GI, including successful migration of nearly 1 million historical procedure notes, since being named by Olympus as a preferred replacement for its endowriter software. That designation makes Wolters Kluwer one of just two vendors able to license an Olympus-developed export utility to seamlessly migrate data from EndoWorks to ProVation MD, which played an important role in Tampa General's decision.

A 1,011-bed private not-for-profit hospital, Tampa General is one among the largest hospitals in Florida and serves a population of more than 4 million. It is the primary teaching affiliate of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine. Approximately 8,000 procedures are performed at its GI facility every year.

ProVation MD will be featured among Wolters Kluwer's point of care solutions in Booth #1543 at the HIMSS17 Annual Conference and Exhibition, taking place February 20-22 in Orlando, Fla. It is the only dedicated structured reporting and coding solution that provides clinically relevant, intuitive software for more accurate and complete documentation of procedures. It allows physicians to efficiently capture robust detail from even the most complex procedures, then automatically generates clear, complete procedure notes and appropriate reimbursement codes, quickly, easily and without dictation. By automatically applying the reimbursement codes and disseminating critical procedural information, ProVation MD ensures appropriate payment, reduces costs and streamlines quality reporting while improving clinical communication and care coordination.

ProVation MD offers more precise reporting, which for Tampa General translates into the capture of a greater number of billable codes. Further, because the software can be customised to suit physicians' specific needs, documentation and patient through-put are accelerated.

UK Loughborough University London receives research funding from UKIERI for development of healthcare Internet of Things platform - 17 Feb 2017

Loughborough University London has been awarded research funding from the UK-India Education Research Initiative (UKIERI) to build a secure Internet of Things (IoT) platform for use in healthcare.

IoT platforms connect devices, allowing them to collect and use data. Examples include smart fridges that alert owners when food supplies are running low or thermostats that learn about heating habits in the home in order to conserve energy.

The three-year UKIERI award, led by Yogachandran Rahulamathavan of the University's Institute for Digital Technologies (IDT), will enable IoT platforms to be created that interact with people who need round-the-clock assistance, using sensors to measure movement, location and body functions such as breathing, heart rate and blood pressure.

An initial pilot testing phase will see patients in care homes from the states of West Bengal and Orissa (renamed Odisha in 2011) in India recruited in order to study chronic diseases, with IoT services tailored to respond to the socio-cultural differences across regions.

The framework will be extended to analyse real-time physiological data from patients equipped with wireless devices whilst travelling in ambulances, before focusing on the development of a secure infrastructure for data collection and an interface which empowers users and protects the privacy of participants.

The project is a collaboration between the Institute of Digital Technologies and IIT Kharagpur, supported by City University of London, eSmart Saving Ltd UK and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

US NISO publishes updated version of ResourceSync Framework Specification - 17 Feb 2017

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has announced the formal publication of an updated version of the ResourceSync Framework Specification (ANSI/NISO Z39.99-2017). Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), this 1.1 revision improves a web standard that details various capabilities that a server can implement to allow third-party systems to remain synchronised with evolving resources. Such synchronisation is important in the current landscape where Web-based content-not only the metadata about the content-is constantly changing.

ResourceSync was first published as ANSI/NISO Z39.99 in 2014. The standard, also known as the ResourceSync 'core' specification, offers a range of easy-to-implement capabilities that a server may support in order to enable remote systems to remain more tightly in step with its evolving resources. It also describes how a server should advertise the facilities it supports, and presents plentiful examples and use cases that offer guidance for implementation. The recent revisions to the standard, which is pull-based, reflect changes to fix problems related to the conflation of last modification date of a resource and the datetime of notification of a change to the resource.

The ResourceSync specification and video tutorials on using the ANSI/NISO Z39.99-2017 standard are available on the NISO website at www.niso.org/workrooms/resourcesync/.
