What Makes America the Greatest Country in the World?

My son Dave bought the DVDs with the first season of the HBO’s series “The Newsroom”, and we watched the first episode today. In the beginning, they showed a press conference, where a journalist asked a TV anchor, “What makes America the Greatest Country?”. He could not give a decent answer, which got me thinking, “How would I answer this question?” I live in the USA for twenty one years. Before that I lived in the USSR. I’m an American citizen. I don’t have any other citizenships. I can compare. I can observe. I can speak up freely. To put it short, the USA is the most wanted country in the world. That’s why it’s the greatest country in the world. Of course, not 100% want to relocate to America. But most of the people do even if they say otherwise. People vote for America by putting the money (or lack of thereof) where their mouth is. People find any possible way to ... (more)

Power Your Patient Portal with the Latest Advances in Data Science

By Eugene Borukhovich With U.S. agencies mandating that healthcare providers engage their consumers through patient portals, data science may be the secret weapon for physicians and health care organizations to not only comply with that mandate, but provide a level of service that bonds them to patients under their care. Combined with electronic health records (EHR), patient portals allow physicians and patients to collaborate, providing a means for patients to meaningfully participate in their care. This is especially important when managing and treating chronic conditions such as asthma, hypertension, diabetes and obesity. While mandated patient portals can be viewed as a check-the-box effort to comply with Meaningful Use requirements, the opportunity is to supercharge portals with data science to improve access and quality of health care. Data science is changing... (more)
