NI IIoT technology platforms, such as NI InsightCM, DIAdem and CompactRIO, include distributed sensor measurement, edge processing, analytics and open communication and data management.

We like that it natively supports multiple data sources, such as accelerometers, thermocouples and Modbus, plus common analysis and display capabilities. And, as providers of monitoring systems, we especially appreciate the extensive customization features and use of open standard data files. Now, when our clients ask for any unique features, we can modify NI InsightCM directly. The combination of extensive features and openness to configurability makes NI InsightCM an ideal machine monitoring platform,” says Jim Campbell, president of Viewpoint Systems, Inc.

This online fleet-wide monitoring solution is ideal for a variety of industries, including oil and gas, power generation, mining, rail and industrial manufacturing. Companies that need to reduce maintenance costs, improve machine performance and maximize uptime can benefit from NI InsightCM.

Savers Just Outnumber Fun-lovers, Internationally

leave a comment »

NUREMBERG, Germany /PRNewswire/ —

Internationally, people with a save now mindset just outnumber people with a have fun now mindset.

GfK asked 27,000 internet users across 22 countries to say how strongly they agree or disagree with the statement “I want to enjoy life today and will worry about savings and investments later”.

Internationally, a third (34 percent) of online consumers say they agree – made up of 12 percent who agree completely and 22 percent who agree somewhat. The numbers who disagree are slightly higher, standing at 38 percent overall – including 14 percent who disagree strongly and 24 percent who disagree somewhat. A quarter (25 percent) neither agree nor disagree.

Women more inclined to be savings-minded; men are evenly divided

A third (33 percent) of women agree with enjoying life now and worrying about saving later, but a greater number (40 percent) disagree. Men are more evenly divided with 36 percent agreeing and 35 percent disagreeing.

Twenty-somethings beat teenagers on percentage of fun-lovers

Online consumers aged 20-29 years old have the highest percentage of fun-lovers of any age group, with 41 percent agreeing with having fun now and worrying about saving later. Teenagers (15-19 years old) and those aged 30-39 years old come almost equal at 37 percent and 36 percent respectively. And a quarter (26 percent) of people aged 50-59 years old and 60+ years old also agree with living for today.

On the other end of the scale, the numbers showing a more ‘save now’ mindset increase fairly steadily with each age group. This starts at a third (34 percent) of teenagers and 20-29 year olds who disagree, and peaks at 43 percent of 50-59 year olds and 42 percent of those aged 60 and over.

Hong Kong only region where the majority favors saving today

Hong Kong stands out as the only region where over half of the online population show a ‘save now’ mindset. In this country, 54 percent disagree with the idea of enjoying life today and worrying about savings and investments later. The Czech Republic runs second with 49 percent, followed by Brazil with 45 percent.

These findings give financial service brands a top-level picture of the appetite across different countries, age groups and genders for savings and investments products, versus products that support a more ‘live for today’ mindset, such as instant-access accounts.

Sotera(R) Wireless To Highlight The Power Of Patient Surveillance At IRRS 2016

leave a comment »

SAN DIEGO /PRNewswire/ — Sotera Wireless, a leader in the drive to make healthcare safer through continuous multiparameter patient monitoring, today previewed its clinical presentations the 12thInternational Conference On Rapid Response Systems and Medical Emergency Teams being held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center on May 2 and May 3, 2016.

Among the featured events is an educational session sponsored by Sotera “Surveillance Monitoring Using the ViSi Mobile® Monitoring System,” which will take place on May 2 from 1300 to 1315 local time in Room 104. Dr. Ben Kanter, Sotera chief medical officer and a nationally recognized physician leader in the use of health information technology, will lead the discussion along with Gary Manning, Sotera vice president, sales and market development. Dr. Kanter will highlight how hospitals are using the ViSi Mobile System to reduce failure-to-rescue situations and adverse events among non-ICU patients. In addition, he will discuss benefits derived from the system’s advanced interoperability capabilities and analytics.

“It is a privilege to speak at the 2016 IRRS Conference,” said Manning. “This clinician community is dedicated to improving worldwide patient safety through early detection of patient deterioration in the hospital setting. We value their insight and have applied it in our drive to provide technology that enhances the effect of the rapid response system.”

Dr. Kanter will also present in a general session on May 2 from 1600 to 1615 local time in Room 103. The abstract “Multiparameter Alarm Management and Distribution on the General Care Unit” describes a study exploring whether continuous multi-parameter physiological monitoring could be used to better track patient deterioration and trigger rapid response without causing significant alarm fatigue or alarm issues. The study, conducted at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston Salem, N. C., employed an integrated system comprised of the ViSi Mobile System, electronic health record, clinical communication and collaboration tools, and cutting edge mobile technology to manage alarm distribution.

The ViSi Mobile System will be highlighted in an additional session “Response to Patient Deterioration in the Afferent Limb: Effectiveness of Continuous Vital Sign Monitoring” to be held on May 2 from 1645 to 1700 local time in Room 2. Presenters Koh Mei Jiao and Wei Ling Ling of National University Hospital, Singapore, will discuss a study evaluating the utility of the ViSi Mobile System and the efficacy of vital sign parameters in the detection of serious complications. Rosemary Kennedy, Sotera chief nursing officer, served as the primary study author.

The ViSi Mobile System is a wireless, wearable platform that continuously monitors all patient vital signs and communicates data to clinicians. The system aligns with evidence demonstrating that the highest-specificity indicator for at-risk patients is a combination of heart rate, respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure and change in mental status. The ViSi Mobile System measures heart rate, respiration rate, and continuous non-invasive blood pressure (cNIBP), along with SpO2, pulse rate, and skin temperature.

About Sotera Wireless
Sotera Wireless, Inc. is a San Diego-based healthcare technology company dedicated to a new generation of comprehensive vital signs monitoring. Sotera’s mission is to improve patient safety by empowering clinicians to detect early signs of deterioration in virtually any care setting and enable early intervention and rapid response, all without limiting the patient’s freedom of movement.
