Yesterday Michael Dell shared his insights with healthcare executives on how information technology is being used to improve the efficiency and quality of care today and how IT can support future innovations in prevention, wellness and personalized medicine.
“Digitizing patient information and making it available in a secure and convenient way across our healthcare system are among the best opportunities we have to improve U.S. healthcare and create a better system for future generations of Americans.”
Speaking at the Health Evolution Partners Leadership Summit, Mr. Dell encouraged healthcare organizations to expedite adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and cloud computing to create new information-driven efficiency and care advantages. A longstanding advocate of preventative health, Mr. Dell said that a key benefit of solutions like EMRs is the correlation between higher-quality information and higher-quality care. Based on insights gleaned from working with healthcare organizations around world, he encouraged public and private healthcare leaders to:
1. Unlock Information
Enhanced digitization and the management and sharing of patient information will help eliminate information silos between patients, providers and payers.
2. Empower Caregivers
Mr. Dell said IT implemented at the point of care can empower caregivers and enhance their productivity, a growing

Technical Differences between Internet and Enterprise Search
We’ll first focus on the “easier” technical differences. We’ve broken them into “User Experience” at the high and low level, and a section on data and spidering issues.
User Experience: High Level
The way users interact with a corporate search engine may be quite different than the casual use of Yahoo and Google on the web.
Single Shot Relevancy – Over-Reliance in Both Markets
Long time readers will recall that we’ve warned before that an over-reliance on “relevance” can belie a flawed usage assumption, that ANY engine can find the “correct” answer for the typical 1 or 2 word search. On the Internet, when I type “bush”, how could the system know with certainly whether I’m referring to President George Bush, junior or senior, or the Australian outback, or one of the many beers or musical groups with “bush” in their name (with or without that exact spelling), or perhaps a shrub to plant in the yard. In the enterprise, terms like “resource” or “schedule” are similarly ambiguous.
Ironically, this first issue is something public and private engines often have in common. Which leads us to….
Bizcloud as part of its partnership with New Idea Engineering (NIE) will be featuring enterprise search and content management strategy under our technology blog. As Bizcloud is in process of greatly improving the user search experience we wanted to share the best industry expert advice on this topic. We have invited the team at New Idea Engineering to share valuable insight on search with our business community. As always it is through participation and questions that meaningful partnerships and opportunities develop. We will deliver on a engaging conversation around enterprise search technology with you and look forward to your feedback.
Documents vs. Data
Modern search engines employ “fulltext” search, looking for specific search terms in relatively unstructured text. The unstructured nature of the data is the key; it was assumed that most content would be composed of paragraphs of text, with very little formal structure, verses the more traditional fields in a database, with their more rigid INT, DATE and CHAR datatypes. About the only assumption made about a document’s “structure” was that it would probably have a Title of some sort. References to specific numbers, colors or geographic locations may be blindly treated the same as every other word in the document. (See also Entity Extraction.) Hopefully, if a term appears in the title, it will be given a bit more weight, but that’s about it in the basic world of documents.

Your business data is one of your company’s most valuable assets and keeping it secure must be at the top of your priorities. Small business owners often neglect protection of data, either because of the costs associated with it, or because they don’t have technical skills to employ necessary measures. Here are some simple tips that you as a business owner can follow to make sure your business data is secure and that your company is protected from financial damage that is caused by accidents or data security breaches.
