Android TV systems provide low-cost interactive care
Video systems can streamline hospital care in all sorts of ways from displaying messages (“Quiet time is 1 to 2 PM today”) to taking patient surveys, showing patients their X-Rays, and helping patients view their records from their beds. But most of these systems lie outside the budgets of small and rural hospitals. Healthcare Information is halving the costs of the systems, largely by deploying Android in their sets, and is selling them to smaller healthcare institutions that could not afford them before. The use of Android also permits hospitals to choose among the hundreds of thousands of standard apps available in App Stores.

If you haven’t seen it, I recommend you watch Andy Bechtolsheim’s keynote at the recent Mysqlconf. We covered SSD’s in our just published report on Big Data management technologies. Since then, we’ve gotten additional signals from our network of alpha geeks and our interest in them remains high. I had a chance to visit with Dataspora founder and blogger Mike Driscoll, an enthusiastic advocate for the use of the open source statistical computing language, R.
Our belief that proficiency in managing and analyzing large amounts of data distinguishes market leading companies, led to a recent report designed to help users understand the different large-scale data management techniques. Our report on Big Data Technologies was the result of interviews with over thirty experts, including research scientists, (open-source) hackers, vendors, data analysts, and entrepreneurs. I recently sat down with my co-author, Roger Magoulas (Director of Research at O’Reilly), who agreed talk about our report and Big Data in general.
