Business Meet in Boston, US

Communicating with clients in this technological world has become one touch and most of our meets with clients around the globe is through chat/calls/video calls. This helps to stay in touch with clients on daily basis and they can also actively participate in Scrums with the team members and deliver their recommendations too.

Altogether remote communication has no longer been a hindrance and has enabled quick responses and verification. Still, face-to-face communications are a more effective way for better understanding of the client out the project work too that helps to build long-term relationship and trust.

smartData believes in repeat culture and to maintain its longevity personal interactions are an important part and smarTians drive this engine.

Smartphone Digital Assistant

When consumers look at the latest smartphone, they are in perplexity to play with the functionality of the device. That moment an intelligent virtual assistant application/software can make the path easy to answer the question. Global Market Insights Inc. came up with recent stats on Intelligent Virtual Assistant app Market to grow at a CAGR of 34.9% from 2016 to 2024. Based on the new research report on Dec. 21, 2016 Intelligent Virtual Assistant Market size is expected to exceed USD 11 billion by 2024.

The majority of the big companies reaching with advanced technology development in terms of virtual assistants applications like Apple has Siri, Amazon has Alexa, Microsoft has Cortana, and Google has the new and refreshed Google now. It’s deployed on mobile devices, enterprise websites, and social media to enable them to have communication with the user. The virtual personal assistant has gained widespread acceptance among the smartphone community.

The consumer can ask their virtual assistant search for a dry cleaner that picks up and delivers, temperature, to make a call, write an email, schedule an appointment and so on. Smartphones are becoming smarter to spontaneously respond to given command. In some ways, Google Now is already performing functions and in the next couple of years, the ability of the virtual personal assistant would expand.

Microsoft Cortana is a wild card, which has received mixed feedback on the weak track record in smartphones. Cortana runs on iPhones and Android devices by integrating with Skype permit millions of Skype users to parlay to book flights, hotels, and more.

Healthcare Practice Management – EMR & EHR

Small wonder that the idea has been promoted by the Obama administration, with strong nonpartisan and industry support. The government has given $6.5 billion in incentives, and doctors and hospitals have spent billions more.

EMRs would make healthcare safer, better, and more efficient, assert the IOM, and if every person’s complete medical history was stored on computers and linked crosswise the country. Clinicians anywhere could view a patient’s every hospital stay, blood test, and X-ray. The smart software would guide diagnoses, prescribed drugs and doses would be computer-vetted against each patient to forestall life-threatening medication mistake. The medical community’s general reaction: great idea, but expensive and difficult. As the years passed, hospitals did slowly adopt computerized physician order entry for prescriptions, but otherwise, the wedding between computers and healthcare largely took place in billing departments and other back offices.

Electronic Health Record (EHR)

An EHR is a digital collection of patient health information compiled at one or more meetings in any care delivery setting.

According to 2014 EHR Governance Study

1. Only 60 percent of respondents have a formalized EHR Governance structure in place.
2. 63% of formalized EHR governance structures involves a multi-disciplinary, cross-functional advisory board or committee
3. Physician/clinician engagement and adoption are biggest EHR Governance challenges.

According to the US department of health and human services

Percentage of office-based physicians with EHR systems: United States, 2001–2013 is

cdc

1. In 2013, 78% of office-based physicians used any type of electronic health record (EHR) system, up from 18% in 2001.
2. In 2013, 48% of office-based physicians reported having a system that met the criteria for a basic system, up from 11% in 2006. The percentage of physicians with basic systems by state ranged from 21% in New Jersey to 83% in North Dakota.
3. In 2013, 69% of office-based physicians reported that they intended to participate (i.e., they planned to apply or already had applied) in meaningful use. Around 13% of all office-based physicians reported that they both intended to participate in meaningful use incentives and had EHR systems with the capabilities to support 14 of the Stage 2 Core Set objectives for meaningful use.

How to estimate the cost for building a mobile app

After intense thought process of an idea, customers are looking for a reliable team who understands their business objectives with budget constraint. smartData knows how this business specification will transform the living standard of consumers. Keeping clients’ budget constraint in mind we develop their business idea into the functional application.

If anyone aligns two developers to estimate one project, it is most likely that they will give two different estimates because each developer anticipation for developing an app would be based on their experience and expertise. We permutate and combine the essential features of the application which in

1. Develop a wireframe- Wireframe is like the blueprint in the house analogy. The business specification is put into blueprint which gives a clear understanding of the developed application. Detailed design for any application is very important during the estimation phase because it gives a wholesome view of the application. We follow many parameters for wireframes: low-fidelity wireframes, high-fidelity wireframe, interactive prototypes, designs. Lo-fi wireframes are created before high-fidelity.

2. Specification understanding- Firstly, we understand by asking a lot of questions about the business specification, what functionality they want to embed, what would be their technical preference for the application. We then validate the concept to determine the reasonable timeline and cost.

3. Features list- To estimate the timeframe for an application, we create a detailed functionality, complexity, and integrations. To get the bare idea into the uniform state, it’s essential to create the features list that makes the project descriptive.

4. Quotation- Quote is shared once the clear functional objective of the application is mutually agreed.

Our end goal is to develop a system to make the application functionally strong with an economic cost. To know about our process, you can contact us.

SmartHome is changing the real estate industry

Residential properties are taking a shift keeping in mind the state of the art of technology which will ensure the data of the home activity. New technologies are designed, developed and used to make a secure place for everyone. Talking about home automation, users are becoming informative to take precaution for unexpected damages. Homes are the biggest market for new technology being developed. Researchers envision a future information society stemming from the convergence of ubiquitous computing, ubiquitous communication, and intelligent environments, especially residential environment. In the next two years, homeowners will have hundreds of smart devices in their homes. Is would be a big leap for those who are unknown to smart home apps which include:

-Garden and lawn irrigation apps that read the weather and automate care.

-Smart refrigerators that help with grocery shopping.

-Remote temperature control.

-Remotely controlled locks and home security.

What is Meaningful Use?

The “Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health” Act (HITECH Act) outlined the intended plans for the adoption of electronic health records through meaningful use (MU). CMS Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive programs have evolved into three stages of meaningful use with their own goal, priorities and their own final rule. Meaningful use means “providers need to show they’re using certified EHR technology in ways that can be measured significantly in quality and in quantity.

Meaningful use sets specific aim that eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals must achieve to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs.

Stages of Meaningful Use

Stage 1

Stage 1 of the CMS EHR Incentive Program began in 2011, it sets the fundamental functionalities for Electronic Health Record (EHR). The requirements are focused on providers capturing patient data and sharing that data either with the patient or with other healthcare professionals. Eligible hospitals, Eligible professionals, and critical access hospitals will successfully attest to two stage 1 reporting periods before moving to stage 2.

Stage 2

Stage 2 of the CMS EHR Incentive Program begins in 2014. Uses advanced clinical processes, in which requirements are focused on health information exchange between providers and promotes patient engagement by giving patients secure online access to their health information.

Stage 3

Stage 3 of the CMS EHR Incentive Program is scheduled to begin in 2016 but the rule has not yet been finalized. Policy and Standards committees are developing recommendations to continue to expand meaningful use objectives to improve health care outcomes.

smartData Enterprises has been developing Healthcare applications from the past 15 years and understand all aspects of the meanigful use criterion. Request a quote for free and if you have any questions or queries, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to be of assistance!
