http://otechimg.com • Herman Oosterwijk, President of OTECH, Inc., presents Part II of a seminar on Digital Healthcare Enterprise: Concept & Requirements. This part describes the architecture, its interfaces and core functionality as well as the major requirements. The digital health care enterprise is known under many different terms, HIS, EMR, EHR, and others. Its functionality and architecture is similar for most institutions, even although the implementations differ. However, each one has a set of key components and requirements which are discussed in this series.

What is THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER? What does THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER mean? THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER meaning - THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER definition - THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), sometimes referred to as thermoplastic rubbers, are a class of copolymers or a physical mix of polymers (usually a plastic and a rubber) which consist of materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. While most elastomers are thermosets, thermoplastics are in contrast relatively easy to use in manufacturing, for example, by injection molding. Thermoplastic elastomers show advantages typical of both rubbery materials and plastic materials. The benefit of using thermoplastic elastomers is the ability to stretch to moderate elongations and return to its near original shape creating a longer life and better physical range than other materials. The principal difference between thermoset elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers is the type of cross-linking bond in their structures. In fact, crosslinking is a critical structural factor which imparts high elastic properties. It was not until the 1950s, when thermoplastic polyurethane polymers became available, that TPE became a commercial reality. During the 1960s styrene block copolymer became available, and in the 1970s a wide range of TPEs came on the scene. The worldwide usage of TPEs (680,000 tons/year in 1990) is growing at about nine percent per year. The styrene-butadiene materials possess a two-phase microstructure due to incompatibility between the polystyrene and polybutadiene blocks, the former separating into spheres or rods depending on the exact composition. With low polystyrene content, the material is elastomeric with the properties of the polybutadiene predominating. Generally they offer a much wider range of properties than conventional cross-linked rubbers because the composition can vary to suit customer needs. Block copolymers are interesting because they can "microphase separate" to form periodic nanostructures, as in the styrene-butadiene-styrene block copolymer shown at right. The polymer is known as Kraton and is used for shoe soles and adhesives. Owing to the microfine structure, the transmission electron microscope or TEM was needed to examine the structure. The butadiene matrix was stained with osmium tetroxide to provide contrast in the image. The material was made by living polymerization so that the blocks are almost monodisperse, so helping to create a very regular microstructure. The molecular weight of the polystyrene blocks in the main picture is 102,000; the inset picture has a molecular weight of 91,000, producing slightly smaller domains. The spacing between domains has been confirmed by small-angle X-ray scattering, a technique which gives information about microstructure. Since most polymers are incompatible with one another, forming a block polymer will usually result in phase separation, and the principle has been widely exploited since the introduction of the SBS block polymers, especially where one of the block is highly crystalline. One exception to the rule of incompatibility is the material Noryl, where polystyrene and polyphenylene oxide or PPO form a continuous blend with one another. Other TPEs have crystalline domains where one kind of block co-crystallizes with other block in adjacent chains, such as in copolyester rubbers, achieving the same effect as in the SBS block polymers. Depending on the block length, the domains are generally more stable than the latter owing to the higher crystal melting point. That point determines the processing temperatures needed to shape the material, as well as the ultimate service use temperatures of the product. Such materials include Hytrel, a polyester-polyether copolymer and Pebax, a nylon or polyamide-polyether copolymer.
CDCR Chief Information Officer Andrea Rohmann discusses best practices and driving operating efficiencies with IT at the Government Technology Conference (GTC) West. May 10, 2011
Studenten der FH Joanneum Graz aus dem Masterstudium "eHealth", Jahrgang 2012, entwickelten eine Software zum Abgleich von Level 2 und Level 3-Informationen in HL7 CDA-Dokumenten.
In this episode there are brief mentions of HL7, openEHR and ISO 13606. The focus though is on the Concept Constraint Definitions (CCDs) used in MLHIM semantic interoperability. We cover, line-by-line an example of a CCD for Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP). This week we covered the header and metadata sections. Be sure to join us next Tuesday (2013-07-09) for the definition section of this CCD. Just follow MLHIM at http://gplus.to/MLHIM and watch for the event announcement.

The 70's are very special to me, every song from that time seems burnt into my saturday night fevered little brain. Every song with a beat made me wanna move my feet. The pop charts and top 40 FM radio supplied me with tons of danceable and memorable music. This one is a true delight, a relentlessly upbeat, hook filled rock tune that put out the universal call to come and get it! Not too many people resisted, it still sounds super great today! Redbone first came to my attention with their "Witch Queen Of New Orleans" a 1972 swamp rock tune that peaked at #21. Inspired by friend Jimi Hendrix to put together a Native American rock band, brothers Lolly and Pat Vegas along with Tony Bellamy (born Anthony Avila) and Peter DePoe, secured a record contract with his help and their debut LP, "Redbone" was released in 1970 on Epic Records. Their first charting single, "Maggie", from their second LP, "Potlach" peaked at #80 for two weeks in December, 1970. The name Redbone was chosen since it meant a mixed race person in Cajun, which paid tribute to their Native American roots and the mixed races of the band members. The duo had already released an album, "Pat & Lolly Vegas at the Haunted House" in 1966, and also composed "Niki Hoeky" a #23 pop hit for PJ Proby in 1967. Their third LP, "Message From A Drum" contained "Witch Queen Of New Orleans" and paved the way for the runaway #5 pop success of "Come And Get Your Love" from their fourth LP, "Wovoka". It made me swell with pride at my own native american ancestry, being born a full blooded Huron Indian and having them to look up to. At the time, the plight of the American Indians and the injustices they suffered throughout the development of the United States was making headlines. "Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee", written by Dee Brown was about the massacre of the Lakota Indians in 1890 had became a flashpoint in 1970 and opened the eyes of many Americans to the price that was paid for the birth of the United States. Redbone released a song entitled, "We Were All Wounded At Wounded Knee" as a non album single to commemorate the needless death of nearly 500 men, women and children of the Lakota. US radio totally ignored the politically charged song because they felt that the subject matter was distasteful and controversial, with several radio chains banning the song. Sadly, Redbone lost their radio magic and never charted again. "Come And Get Your Love" was given an updated arrangement by Real McCoy in 1995 and that version peaked at #19. They experienced another resurgence in 2014 when their signature hit was included in "The Guardians Of The Galaxy" movie and soundtrack. The song benefited from the expert hand of Gene Page who arranged the strings here, and on most of Barry White's productions. Genius indeed! Bellamy passed away on Christmas Day, 2009 succumbing to liver failure and Lolly Vegas died the following year due to lung cancer. Pat continues to perform with Redbone to this day.
