The coronavirus pandemic has caused significant alterations in how people work, travel and enjoy leisure time. COVID-19 also brought about numerous healthcare compliance changes, temporarily put in place to increase provider flexibility and access to care. Here are four of them.
If there's one constant throughout the coronavirus pandemic, it's a universal feeling of uncertainty. Internet services like cloud storage have become essential for many companies, but this raises some questions as well. As quarantine continues, how will it affect cloud solutions and home networks?
Few people called the reliability of the cloud into question before the pandemic. The unprecedented surge in internet use brought on by quarantine may cause some to doubt the resilience of these systems. Networks and data centers haven't seen a test of strength like this before.
The internet is essential to carrying businesses through this time of remote work. Will all the new stress affect things like network strength and cloud solutions?
The supply chain is the backbone of many industries. A disruption at any point in the logistics process can send a ripple effect throughout the business, leading to lost profits and even lost customers. Supply chain risk mitigation is essential, and an often-overlooked aspect of this process is data management.
Almost two-thirds of businesses don't use technology to monitor their logistics performance. This figure means that at least two-thirds of supply chains are likely not managing risk as effectively as they could. Using available technology to manage their data, companies can significantly reduce supply chain risks.
Healthcare has made enormous strides in recent years, thanks to technological breakthroughs. Advanced treatment methods and detection tools allow doctors and nurses to provide better care faster, but medicine is still far from perfect. Big data can help improve it.
Business analytics and similar practices could make healthcare more accurate, more affordable and more effective. Though the methodology is still in its initial stages, big data examples in healthcare demonstrate significant promise.
No matter what kind of business you have, it's crucial to stay abreast of what's happening regarding security authentication. Updating your practices helps keep your data safe from hackers while ensuring that only the appropriate parties can see information associated with your company.
Here are four security authentication updates that are likely to shape 2020, as well as remain prominent for the foreseeable future.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being implemented into medical devices. That innovation could bring about ground-breaking changes in patient care. However, it also comes with relevant concerns about cybersecurity.
Researchers from Germany and Hawaii demonstrated how communication from outer space—yes, outer space—is inherently untrustworthy. In their paper, they demonstrate how in the time and effort taken to decipher the extraterrestrial “hello,” we may miss alien malware that is completely foreign to us. They recommend completely destroying any complex message from space in order to avoid all risk.
Centralized data systems allow information to exist inside one mainframe but remain accessible from numerous points. The content gets collected, stored and managed in one place, but centralization does not impact the ability of an authorized user to access the content from anywhere in the world.
Here's a look at centralized data in health care and why this approach is so advantageous for the industry.
