DUBLIN, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The “Electronic Health Information Exchange Market” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report examines the technology, technology providers, and market trends in Electronic Health Information Exchange (HIE) services.

This report evaluates the current industry trends in HIE products and services. It also identifies the key vendors and their strategies. The report also answers the basic questions: What is an Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR)?, What is an EHR database?, and Why is there a need for an HIE?

Simply stated, an Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. While many leading companies are increasingly moving towards digital retention of records via EHR databases, information is typically available only within a closed system. In other words, medical facilities that are not part of the same group often cannot exchange data between their EHR systems.

Productivity Commission claims wide-spread regtech adoption will lift compliance

An information paper by the Productivity Commission has highlighted how there is scope for Australia to adopt regulatory technology (regtech) beyond the financial sector, with the belief it can improve regulatory outcomes and reduce the costs of administration and compliance.

In its regulatory technology information paper [PDF], the Productivity Commission noted how Australia is “well-placed” to develop regtech solutions given its “relatively stable and sophisticated” regulatory systems, but currently, extensive use of regtech remains relatively low.

“Low awareness can dampen both demand and supply responses — business need to see value in changing their software so that developers see value in investing in applications, which in turn deliver the value businesses need to see,” the paper stated.

It went on to suggest that Australia could extend its existing use of “low-tech” solutions, including digitised data, forms, registers, and transactions to streamline business and individual transactions with government, as well as

Without Compliance, DeFi’s Napster Moment Is Doomed To Fail

When most people in the crypto universe imagine what a crypto trader looks like, they imagine a high-flying, government-fearing, algorithm-loving fanatic trading on a cutting edge DeFi platform. The trader wants to swap three ETH for some BAT to maximize investment yield based on an algorithm he believes is impervious to market trends. Unbeknownst to the trader, the major source of liquidity to the pool comes from the proceeds of the Mt. Gox hack, the sale of blood diamonds or heroin. Otherwise stated, the trader has accidentally stepped into a money laundering cesspool by accident.

Flash forward one year. The same trader, conducting the same transaction, has maximized his yield and now seeks to deposit his gains into a traditional bank that has started accepting crypto, or even, G-d forbid, a centralized exchange. Ultimately, the goal was always and continues to be to cash out

New method ranks contact-tracing apps according to their compliance with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

The UN’s criteria for individual rights and fairness form the basis for a newly-published critique of COVID-19 contact-tracing app guidelines for Europe, and of apps already being used by millions in Austria and Singapore.

Released today by researchers in Sweden and Denmark, the analysis is presented with a “scorecard” that rates the apps according to how they comply with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Among the three cases, Singapore’s TraceTogether app was ranked lowest in overall compliance with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that comprise the UN’s “blueprint for peace and prosperity.” Austria’s Stopp Corona, was ranked highest.

The real benefit of aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals is that by doing so, the apps will appeal to more users and get more downloads, says Associate Professor Ricardo Vinuesa, a researcher in the department of Engineering Mechanics at KTH Royal Institute of
