Healthcare transformation requires us to continually look at new and better ways to manage insights - both within and outside the organization today. Increasingly, the ability to glean and operationalize new insights efficiently as a byproduct of an organization's day-to-day operations is becoming vital to hospitals and health systems ability to survive and prosper. One of the long-standing challenges in healthcare informatics has been the ability to deal with the sheer variety and volume of disparate healthcare data and the increasing need to derive veracity and value out of it. Demystifying Big Data and Machine Learning for Healthcare investigates how healthcare organizations can leverage this tapestry of big data to discover new business value, use cases, and knowledge as well as how big data can be woven into pre-existing business intelligence and analytics efforts. This book focuses on teaching you how to: Develop skills needed to identify and demolish big-data myths Become an expert in separating hype from reality Understand the V's that matter in healthcare and why Harmonize the 4 C's across little and big data Choose data fi delity over data quality Learn how to apply the NRF Framework Master applied machine learning for healthcare Conduct a guided tour of learning algorithms Recognize and be prepared for the future of artificial intelligence in healthcare via best practices, feedback loops, and contextually intelligent agents (CIAs) The variety of data in healthcare spans multiple business workflows, formats (structured, un-, and semi-structured), integration at point of care/need, and integration with existing knowledge. In order to deal with these realities, the authors propose new approaches to creating a knowledge-driven learning organization-based on new and existing strategies, methods and technologies. This book will address the long-standing challenges in healthcare informatics and provide pragmatic recommendations on how to deal with them.

Wound Healing Biomaterials: Volume Two, Functional Biomaterials discusses the types of wounds associated with trauma, illness, or surgery that can sometimes be extremely complex and difficult to heal. Consequently, there is a prominent drive for scientists and clinicians to find methods to heal wounds opening up a new area of research in biomaterials and the ways they can be applied to the challenges associated with wound care. Much research is now concerned with new therapies, regeneration methods, and the use of biomaterials that can assist in wound healing and alter healing responses. This book provides readers with a thorough review of the functional biomaterials used for wound healing, with chapters discussing the fundamentals of wound healing biomaterials, films for wound healing applications, polymer-based dressing for wound healing applications, and functional dressings for wound care.

Revealing the many roles of RNA in regulating gene expression For decades after the discoveries of messenger RNA, transfer RNA, and ribosomal RNA, it was largely assumed that the role of RNA in the cell was limited to shuttling the genomic message, chaperoning amino acids, and toiling in the ribosomes. Eventually, hints that RNA molecules might have regulatory roles began to appear. With the advent of genomics and bioinformatics, it became evident that numerous other RNA forms exist and have specific functions, including small RNAs (sRNA), RNA thermometers, and riboswitches to regulate core metabolic pathways, bacterial pathogenesis, iron homeostasis, quorum sensing, and biofilm formation. All of these functions, and more, are presented in Regulating with RNA in Bacteria and Archaea, written by RNA biologists from around the globe. Divided into eight sections--RNases and Helicases, Cis-Acting RNAs, Cis Encoded Base Pairing RNAs, Trans-Encoded Base Pairing RNAs, Protein Titration and Scaffolding, General Considerations, Emerging Topics, and Resources--this book serves as an excellent resource for established RNA biologists and for the many scientists who are studying regulated cellular systems. It is no longer a fair assumption that gene expression regulation is the provenance of proteins only or that control is exerted primarily at the level of transcription. This book makes clear that regulatory RNAs are key partners along with proteins in controlling the complex interactions and pathways found within prokaryotes.

Do you want to maintain your health and energy level as you age? If so, then it is essential that you replenish your declining hormones. In Hormones, Health, and Happiness, Dr. Steven Hotze reveals how restoring hormones to optimal levels using natural, bioidentical hormones enables women and men to regain their vitality.
Dr. Hotze discusses the frequently overlooked problem of hypothyroidism, which commonly affects women in midlife. Too often, women with all the signs of low thyroid are told that their blood results are normal. Find out why women should believe what their bodies are telling them rather than the results of a blood test.
The conventional medical approach treats symptoms with "anti" drugs, such as antidepressants, antihistamines, antispasmodics, anti-arthritics, and others, rather than discovering and correcting the underlying problems of these symptoms.
In Hormones, Health, and Happiness, Dr. Hotze discusses symptoms of women and men in midlife, which include fatigue, weight gain, headaches, depression, insomnia, hot flashes, joint and muscle pain, brain fog, loss of interest in sex, allergies, and recurrent infections, to name a few, and addresses their solutions. His comprehensive eight-point wellness program will help you strengthen your immune system, balance your hormones, and increase your energy level.
This program encompasses:
- Treatment of low thyroid
- Treatment of hormonal decline and imbalance
- Treatment of adrenal fatigue
- Treatment of yeast overgrowth
- Treatment of airborne allergies
- Treatment of food allergies
- Vitamin and mineral supplementation
- Nutritionally balanced eating program
Dr. Hotze demonstrates how many health problems can be solved safely, effectively, and naturally without drugs.
If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, then it's time to take charge of your health and get your life back. By following Dr. Hotze's recommendations you can begin your journey down a life-long path of health and happiness.
