Better Data for Better Decisions
With COVID (hopefully) in retreat, healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) can renew their focus on the Quadruple Aim of healthcare. Every HDO has thousands of medical devices used by thousands of nurses, and each costs thousands of dollars. By improving the utilization and management of these devices, HDOs can significantly lower the per capita cost of delivering care and enhance the quality of the work-life for their front-line care teams.

Advancing Life Sciences Research: Accelerating innovation in the age of cloud
For decades, high-performance computing (HPC) has played a crucial role in advancing healthcare. Enabled by techniques like next-generation sequencing (NGS), modern computer systems have helped us understand the biology of disease and helped facilitate the development of newer more effective drugs. While once deployed mainly in research, today HPC is edging ever closer to front-line clinical care supporting advanced diagnostics, genetic counseling, and personalized medicine.

Harnessing the power of Big Data and AI for faster, better, and more efficient studies
As more patients become connected, there’s a new data source that can help us understand and engage patients-- data collected passively through wearables, devices, apps and sensors. Envision being able to gather minute-level data directly from patients, monitor adherence to a protocol outside of brick and mortar walls, and enroll patients into a study within 24 hours -- all of these scenarios are possible in the digital era of medicine.

Strategic Challenges in the Bio IT Infrastructure Landscape
Genomics analyses have become much more affordable over the recent years. Creating a growth that makes the Life Science market projected to be worth 20 Billion US Dollars by 2020. In fact, research centers and hospitals specialized in the fields of Bio IT, Sequencing and other Life Sciences have acquired the latest technologies for their applications. As the demand for genomics analyses grows, these organizations are constantly creating new and more digital information. Therefore, IT managers are confronted with the impact of Big Data and must improve their IT infrastructure to respond to the needs of their workflows. Mr. Steven Rietveld, of NODEUM, will introduce this market and its related challenges during this podcast.

Cost effective bioinformatics solutions for high volume bacterial strain typing & quantification
As demand for NGS grows in research organizations, so does the need to store, manage and analyze NGS data. Historically this has been accomplished with complex hardware and software infrastructures — which generate challenges for maintenance, cost and turn-around-time, and user-friendliness. Our goal is to give full control of NGS data back to our customers, enabling you to focus on science. This is why we created the High Volume Sequencing Solution, a software platform that provides full control over your data processing for any data volume. During this podcast, QIAGEN Bioinformatics and Mads Bennedsen from Christian Hansen discuss Building an Automated High Throughput Genome Sequence Analysis Pipeline using CLC Genomic Workbench and CLC Genomics Server.
