Will Healthcare IT Trends Standardize?
As we all know, there are dramatic changes taking place in the healthcare market—changes that will impact all of us in the coming years. Whether it be new government regulations or patients pushing for access to their healthcare information, the fact is, these activities are driving transformation within the market. One such transforming solution is the PDF Healthcare Best Practices Guide. This “Best Practices Guide” describes the attributes of the Portable Document Format (PDF) and how it can be used to facilitate the capture, exchange, preservation and protection of healthcare information. This session will focus on the trends in today’s healthcare market, the challenges in overcoming these issues, and finally how to use best practices to improve patient care, enhance productivity and eliminate paperwork.
Viewers will learn about:
- Learn about the current trends in the industry and the challenges these trends create
- Learn how to use best practices to improve patient care, enhance productivity and eliminate paperwork
Learn how others are reducing processing costs, eliminating paper costs, shortening process cycle times and providing better, more coordinated care
Review successful implementations at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, St. Vincent’s Hospital and Lahey Clinic

A Google Approach to Universal Search for Life Sciences
Sponsored by Google
While life sciences is an information-intensive industry, finding information inside the enterprise is not always the simplest of tasks. Researchers spend considerable time looking for past experiment data, scientific names of drugs, clinical trials documents, and a myriad of other documents. Enterprise search is an emerging technology whereby researchers and other knowledge workers can instantly find any and all documents within the enterprise through a simple search. As the leader in search technology, Google has developed universal search for enterprises, which provides the ability to search all enterprise content – including intranets, file shares, databases, real-time business data, and content management systems –through one simple search box.
Viewers will learn about:
- Business needs of enterprise search within life sciences organizations
(Speaker: Jim Golden, Life Sciences CTO, SAIC)
- Google's approach to universal search for life sciences organizations
(Speaker: Amy Kim, Enterprise Sales Manager, Google Enterprise)
The Secret Life of Antibodies
REVEALED BY PROTEIN TOMOGRAPHY™
Sponsored by Sidec
WHAT WOULD IT MEAN to your antibody development project if you could actually see the real interaction between your antibody and the drug target both in vitro and in situ at the molecular level?
Sidec's research collaborators are doing just that. The advantages for mapping epitopes and for the progression of projects are significant. To find out more, watch our webinar and join the Sidec Executive Forum “The Secret Life of Antibodies” at PEGS 2008 in Boston on May 1.

Technology Leadership in High Content Analysis (HCA) with Definiens and Frost & Sullivan
Sponsored by Definiens and Frost & Sullivan
HCA data volumes can be astounding, demanding high throughput solutions that can deal with data variability and biological complexity. Because most HCA data is created as images, technologies that support and advance high content analysis through image analysis are a focal topic for discussion.
Join Dr. Collin Blackmore from Definiens and Jonathan Witonsky from Frost & Sullivan as they discuss the industry leading image analysis software for HCA offered by Definiens.
Join this webcast to hear:
Analysis from Frost & Sullivan concerning HCA technology leadership and approaches for dealing with data complexity in a high-throughput environment. How Definiens context based image analysis is supporting and advancing HCA at AstraZeneca, the University of Oxford, and MIT. You will also hear the latest analyst perspectives on high content analysis from Frost & Sullivan.

Challenges in Next-Gen Sequencing and Web 2.0 Storage Solutions
Sponsored by BlueArc Corporation and Illumina, Inc.
Next-generation sequencing, and the data that it generates, has presented an incredible data management challenge to the informatics community. Developing a data management plan that addresses both the sheer scale of the data and provides effective management of the data through the informatics pipeline is not easy. While next-generation sequencing holds great promise to make possible a vastly more complete characterization of the human genetic machinery, without a robust storage architecture and efficient data retention strategies few experiments will ultimately succeed. Please join Illumina, Inc. and BlueArc Corporation for a webcast discussion on next-generation sequencing data management strategies.
