Great Success in Combating Cargo Theft

According to a news, there’s 2 companies decided to decrease the cargo theft. The main method or to install an automated system on the truck. Let’s see whether it’s working or not. [Source : http://gobytruckne ws.com/lojack-tomt om-join-forces-to- combat-cargo-theft / ] Here goes the other news following the former news. It will tell the outcome of this new technology: FreightWatch International reports there were a total of 199 cargo thefts in the United States from December 2012 through February 2013. That represents a significant 20 percent decrease when compared to the previous three months. In addition, the average value per load stolen was $133,711, a 39 percent drop from September to November 2012.Overall, cargo theft numbers for 2012 dropped half a percent from 2011, with a total value of $174,298. In 2009, the average value per load stolen was a staggering $500,000. [source: http://gobytruckne ws.com/cargo-theft s-drop-in-most-rec ent-quarter/ ] The news doesn't show what the technology looks like, so I share a video about this. You’ll see the truck turning into a transformer with the new technology.[Visit: http://goo.gl/E8M7 AT ] These news sound quite amazing right? If our company has kept bothered by such this problem, maybe it time to come to this new technology.  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #1)

Medical Computing Everywhere?

Hi, I wanna share some medical-tech related article here. If you’re interested in this topic, check here. According to an article from Intel,2012 , there are more and more hospital embracing medical computing system. The reason is that this system can provide accurate data and remote control for hospital staff which allows them take care of patients much properly and accurately. Here goes a part of the article: Healthcare providers are relying more and more on computers to access medical data such as electronic patient records. A good example of this is where healthcare practitioners are utilizing mobile pointof-care (MPoC) solutions to improve nurse/doctor workflows throughout the hospital. By permitting nurses and doctors to access clinical information systems at the patient bedside in real-time, MPoC solutions can facilitate better nurse/doctor workflows. This in turn has positive impact on patient care and potentially can reduce the length of hospital stays. Medical Clinical Assistants (MCA) and other tablet devices are also being added to the healthcare practitioner toolbox, leading to the widespread computerization of the hospital and helping to improve patient treatment. [source: http://goo.gl/DVup 10 ] After one year, there’s a study about the same topic. It seem this system has proved itself. I think this’s not only a trend in medical industry, but also a good news for all of us! Here is the study: Overall, given the degree of adoption of these computerized systems in the U.S. in 2008, medication errors decreased by 12.5% overall. That meant that during a 1-year period there were an estimated 17.4 million fewer errors, the researchers reported online in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association. "The Institute of Medicine estimates that at least a quarter of all medication-related injuries are preventable, and recommends electronic prescribing through a computerized provider order entry system as one way to reduce medication errors and patient harm," Radley and colleagues observed. These systems typically provide support with alerts for drug dosages and interactions and guidance on clinical decision-making, but their actual impact on medication errors has not been fully determined. Therefore, the researchers conducted a two-part analysis that included a systematic review of the literature to compare error rates with and without the computerized systems….

Smart Technology in Retail Industry

Hi, here’s an article talking about new technology applied to retail industry. It seems will be a trend of using smart technology which can bring a huge change to us. And I think the main point is that the smart touch technology will enhance engagement with our customers! Here goes the article. Source: http://www.theguar dian.com/media-net work-partner-zone- ebay/technology-re tail-industry eBay recently commissioned Conlumino to explore what the future of shopping might look like over the next two years. All of the areas we have explored are rooted in the here and now: they are things retailers are looking at or, in some cases, are already employing. These are interactive television, in-store technologies, augmented reality, image recognition, and smart devices. ( Here’s the case study which share a same view point of this article http://goo.gl/0iXV gM ) Just looking at these five new technologies as driving change in the way we shop, collectively these will be contributing around £2.4bn worth of sales to retail by the end of 2013. Perhaps even more significant is the total influence that new technologies will exert. Last year, we estimated that they contributed influenced retail sales worth £0.3bn; by the end of 2014 they will influence sales worth £9.1bn, some 2.7% of retail. In the future what will matter more is an understanding all of the various ways in which a consumer engages with a retailer – basically the points at which a consumer 'touches' the retail brand. Some of these touch points may be direct sales channels, others will play a supportive role, but all will form part of a wider ecosystem which ultimately drives the top line. How do you feel about this article?  (Aug 15, 2013 | post #1)

Medical device trend

Here I’d like to share two article about medical device trend. The first article starts from global analyze and the second article will talk about 9 specific trend. I want to ask you to notice the potential growth in China mentioned in both article General analyze: http://goo.gl/Zh8o 8U The industry is highly fragmented, and North America dominates with 46% of the global market. High competitive rivalry prevails with low to moderate barrier for entry into the industry. Increased global competitiveness and government regulation and a lack of qualified manpower related to medical devices are some of the challenges facing the Medical Device industry. As perthe study, technological advancements may lead to nanotechnology applications and use of surgical robots as a new segment entering the medical device industry. These new segments are expected to improve the prospects for the market. Infrastructural development such as construction of hospitals and clinics and urbanization is expected to drive the growth of the medical device industry to new horizons. APAC is projected to lead the market and grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. India and China are expected to be the driving countries. The cardiovascular segment is anticipated to witness growth due to an increase in the number of heart patients. Surgical and infection control and general medical Devices are the most lucrative segments for companies in APAC. Second Article http://goo.gl/LnWX sN 3. China emerging as a medical device player. There is an expanding market for medical devices in China. Chinese companies are acquiring FDA-approved products to bring back to China and sell. They may also be manufacturing products to introduce in the U.S, particularly medical diagnostic equipment, or acquiring U.S. manufacturing "know how" to help increase the quality of their production in China for Chinese and other developing market distribution, according to Mr. Kinsella. "Some medical device manufacturers in China are interested in gaining a foothold in the U.S.," Mr. Kinsella says. "I think this will increase competition for the acquisition of US contract manufacturing operations, as well as the orthopedic and spinal branded product IP holders and marketers." He notes several examples of Chinese manufacturers acquiring U.S. manufacturers and says the influx of Chinese companies in the medical device industry brings about the realization of a global medical device market. "I'm not persuaded that we will see orthopedic implants imported on a large scale from China into the US, but I think we will see Chinese business acquirers increasingly coming into Europe and the U.S to make company and product line acquisitions, " he says. Here’s the case study of Guangzhou Overseas Chinese Hospital which keeps updating high-tech medical equipment. http://goo.gl/Qhz3 tb  (Aug 12, 2013 | post #1)

Early Glance: Health Care Equipment companies

Keyboard technology is moving fast. If current trends in the U.S. continue, computer keyboards will soon become standard equipment in patient rooms. Already on the market are workstations on wheels (WOWs) and wallmounted units, increasing the number of places where a keyboard is used. When it comes to keyboard contaminants, the philosophy of “bringing technology to the patient” may bring a key source of infection to the patient instead. if you are interesting this info.
