Tech giants support FHIR standard. Will that make a difference?

During a White House meeting about the new Blue Button 2.0 API for Medicare, six major technology players signed a joint statement pledging to work toward healthcare interoperability with a particular focus on the cloud and artificial intelligence.

The companies — Amazon, Microsoft, Google, IBM, Oracle and Salesforce — promised to support the goal of  “frictionless” interoperability using established industry standards, including the HL7 FHIR standard API. They offered a vision of a robust ongoing dialogue that would include every healthcare entity from payers to patients and application developers, according to a statement released by the Information Technology Industry Council.

Pushing the FHIR standard forward

The statement comes at a time when patient demand for easy access to healthcare data has never been greater. Large hospitals have responded with nascent efforts to improve data exchange based on the FHIR standard API, but there is widespread acknowledgement that healthcare lags far behind other industries when it comes to tech innovation and particularly interoperability. The idea of what could effectively be a consortium of mainstream technology companies working on this tricky problem and promoting the FHIR standard was received warmly by some this week and with a healthy dose of skepticism by others.

The fact that the statement called out cloud usage specifically, is telling, because, for reasons ranging from security to cost, a significant portion of healthcare organizations continue to avoid the cloud. A 2017 report from KLAS Research found 31% of hospitals either won’t expand their cloud efforts or won’t move to the cloud. “The cloud really is a double-edged sword,” said Kathy Downing, vice president of information governance,  informatics, standards, privacy and security at the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), in an interview. While the cloud might offer a more secure environment than some smaller health organizations could achieve, Downing isn’t convinced the cloud itself is pivotal to interoperability. “I don’t know that the cloud really has a dog in this interoperability hunt,” she said. “You want to think through the safeguards and do all the assessments. That’s more important than whether you’re using a server or the cloud.”

I’m not sure how any of these entities will solve the issue of semantic interoperability.
John Moorefounder and managing partner of Chilmark Research

It’s a positive sign for the healthcare industry that it’s attracted the attention of these major players, said Coray Tate, vice president of clinical research at KLAS, in an email. But the market has to be there for this to work. “We’re at the base of the mountain and early steps are the easiest,” he said. “It remains to be seen if the market will provide a business case that will sustain the long climb.”

And the business case may not be there because this group of tech companies isn’t in most hospitals in any significant way today, said John Moore, founder and managing partner of Chilmark Research, in an email. “As big and influential as these companies are their collective presence in healthcare is quite disparate and at the end of the day it is what a clinician is using in their workflow that matters,” he explained. “These companies are simply not there. I’m not sure how any of these entities will solve the issue of semantic interoperability.” To further complicate matters, most hospitals don’t want to share patient data with competitors, he said. “They have instead opted to let patients themselves take direct responsibility.”

Tech support potentially a good thing

Attention from tech giants, however, should be seen as a good thing as long as everyone is thoughtful about how to proceed, said Stan Huff, M.D., chief medical informatics officer at Intermountain Healthcare and co-chair of the Health Level 7(HL7) Clinical Information Modeling Initiative, which developed the FHIR standard API. “This is significant because it creates faith in HL7 FHIR and will encourage investment in FHIR development,” he said. “The thing I would want to encourage is that this group work with existing organizations like HL7, ONC, HSPC and CIIC to ensure they all implement the FHIR standard the same way so we get to true semantic interoperability at some point.”

The joint statement offered few details on future plans but stressed the need to get everyone involved, including the open source community. “I think we will need to wait a few weeks to hear specific projects to know what additional impact they will have,” Huff said.

The next wave of computing is the intelligent edge and intelligent cloud – The Official Microsoft Blog

YouTube Video

Take a look around your house, office or even the next store you visit, and you’ll start to notice that internet-connected devices are bringing us closer than ever before to a world of ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence. As these Internet of Things (IoT) devices become increasingly commonplace, people will start to expect computing to be more integrated into their lives, to anticipate, understand and seamlessly meet their needs. They will expect software to respond to spoken natural language, gestures, body language and emotion, and for it to understand the physical world and the rich context surrounding each user as they navigate their personal life, their work and the world around them.

This trend has more promise than just bringing additional convenience, productivity and connections to our everyday lives. Smart sensors and devices are breathing new life into industrial equipment from factories to farms, helping us navigate and plan for more sustainable urban cities and bringing the power of the cloud to some of the world’s most remote destinations. With the power of artificial intelligence (AI) enabling these devices to intelligently respond to the world they are sensing, we will see new breakthroughs in critical areas that benefit humanity like healthcare, conservation, sustainability, accessibility, disaster recovery and more.

We call this next wave of computing the intelligent edge and intelligent cloud. When we take the power of the cloud down to the device – the edge – we provide the ability to respond, reason and act in real time and in areas with limited or no connectivity. As Satya shared at our Build developer conference, it’s still early days, but we’re starting to see how these new capabilities can be applied towards solving critical world challenges:

  • Increasing the world’s food supply: The world will need 70 percent more food according to the U.N., to feed a global population of 9.6 billion in 2050. Farmers like Sean Stratman in Carnation, Washington, are using the intelligent edge to do precision agriculture with real-time intelligence on soil, even in remote areas with unreliable connectivity. Using Microsoft’s FarmBeatssolution, which combines intelligence trained in the cloud to run on a drone, Sean created a heatmap of his land that served as a guide for him to plant the crops that will best perform in specific locations.
  • Ecological research and conservation: The intelligent edge creates opportunities to collect more accurate data in our research of natural disasters and threatened habitats. Smart sensors can collect data and act on events as they happen, providing researchers greater fidelity in their models and enabling them to take specific actions and make predictions that could improve conservation efforts. Disney Animal Kingdom is leveraging the intelligent edge to study the purple martin bird. They worked with Microsoft to develop hundreds of tiny “smart houses” in Disney’s Animal Kingdom to learn more about the species and help inspire a new generation of conservationists in the parks. The scientists have unprecedented insight now into the nesting behavior of the purple martins.
  • Reducing waste and improving safety in energy: The world depends on natural resources to produce energy for the world.  Because these resources are limited, it is also critical that energy companies leverage technology to increase efficiency. Schneider Electric is using the intelligent edge in oil fields to monitor and configure pump settings and operations remotely, only sending personnel onsite when necessary for repair or maintenance when, for example, intelligent pump monitoring indicates that something will go wrong. This contributes to overall worker safety and improved resource management.

We need to give all organizations and developers the tools to build these kinds of increasingly ambitious solutions that span the intelligent edge and intelligent cloud.  Moreover, these tools must give developers strong security foundations and help them to place security at the very core of their solutions. Devices on the edge handle some of our most sensitive business and personal data in our homes, workplaces, and sometimes in physically remote places.

To protect data wherever it lives, security needs to be baked in from the silicon to the cloud. This has been one of the central design principles of Microsoft’s intelligent edge products and services. Azure Sphere is our intelligent edge solution to power and protect connected microcontroller unit (MCU)-powered devices. There are 9 billion of these MCU-powered devices shipping every year, which power everything from household stoves and refrigerators to industrial equipment. With more processing power than traditional MCUs and a holistic security approach, we believe Azure Sphere will make our increasingly connected world safer. In addition, Azure IoT Edge enables you to run cloud intelligence directly on IoT devices and includes security from device provisioning and management to hardware and cloud services that run on top of the devices. Azure Stack, just one of our many tools to power hybrid scenarios, offers customers the flexibility to securely deploy in the cloud, on-premises or at the intelligent edge.

In the past three months, we introduced Azure Sphere at RSA; announced a powerful application developer experience with Visual Studio for Azure Sphere to accelerate innovation at the outer edge, as well as new IoT edge capabilities and partnerships at Build; and shipped Azure IoT Edge general availability last month. This is all part of our commitment to intelligent edge innovation and our broader $5 billion investment in IoT to empower our customers and partners. We have more exciting updates around the corner and look forward to seeing what our customers and partners build.

Currently i can’t find any invoices for anything apart from the Google home mini and Phillips Bulbs as these were bought recently. All come with boxes. Water cooling kit has been cleaned out with distilled water, however it has been sat in a box for months, so make sure you flush out any dust on the inside as i have just cleaned the outside before boxing them up again. Will be some more bits and bobs as i’m still clearing out and hopefully i can find some invoices.

Update i have found the invoices for the pump, water block, fittings and radiator. All purchased from Overlockers around May 2017. Reservoir was purchased from ebay, so i would expect any warranty with this, but then again its just a tank.

Constant offensive cyberattacks approved by Pentagon

In a move with no publicity and reportedly little input from the White House, the Pentagon has allegedly approved the U.S. Cyber Command to perform offensive cyberattacks.

The Pentagon approved the use of daily and constant offensive cyberattacks in the spring of this year, according to the original report by The New York Times. The offensive cyberattacks would aim to take pre-emptive action against malicious actors before damage could be done to the U.S.

The planned actions would fall “short of war,” although experts have previously argued there may not be a consensus definition of what constitutes an act of cyberwar. In 2016, the Senate introduced a bill to have then-President Barack Obama clarify the definition of an act of cyberwar, but that bill never passed. 

According to The New York Times, the decision to approve offensive cyberattacks was not formally debated inside the White House, and it is unclear what concessions may have been made to address the potential risks, which include the possible need to invade an ally’s network or how to handle escalation in counterattacks.

The mission statement of the U.S. Cyber Command had been to take a more defensive role and protect the Department of Defense networks. There was leeway in that mission to perform offensive cyberattacks, but only in the effort of preventing harm to the U.S. or its allies.

Leo Taddeo, CISO at Cyxtera Technologies, based in Coral Gables, Fla., and former special agent in charge of cyberops for the FBI’s New York office, said enterprises are likely to take collateral damage as a result of this change.

If the U.S. begins to conduct constant and disruptive activities in foreign computer networks, private enterprises here should expect to be on the receiving end of the return fire.

“If the U.S. begins to conduct constant and disruptive activities in foreign computer networks, private enterprises here should expect to be on the receiving end of the return fire,” Taddeo said via email. “This would not be a positive development for organizations that are already struggling to address the cyber threat.”

Andrea Limbago, chief social scientist at Endgame, based in Arlington, Va., said the Cyber Command’s action plan likely focuses on maneuvering between defense and using offensive cyberattacks as part of a deterrent strategy.

“The United States has largely done very little publicly in response to cyberattacks, generally avoiding discussing any kind of offensive capabilities or objectives for decades, and still has only publicly attributed a handful of cyberattacks to foreign governments,” Limbago wrote via email. “It is essential to keep that point in mind, as the cyber domain is not siloed from other domains, and so we must move beyond a focus on cyber tit-for-tat when discussing offense and defense.”

“Perhaps the greatest takeaway from this ongoing debate about offense and defense is that both are crucial components of any larger United States cybersecurity strategy, which still is lacking and desperately needed,” she continued. “If and when that is released, we’ll have a better gauge on concrete priorities in the cyber domain.”
