Up to 100,000 Americans die each year as a result of some form of medical mistake. And this is just the reported number of deaths. The total number of deaths and other disabilities is estimated to be triple (or more) of what´s actually reported. This book takes you behind the scenes to expose heartbreaking stories of medical malpractice, careless misdiagnosis, and downright neglect on the part of health-care personnel across the country. Victims are young and old, healthy and infirm, who innocently entrusted their lives to those who took an oath to ´´do no harm´´. Yet doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, and other medical professionals cover up mistakes every day. This is the complete story of the breadth and depth of medical mistakes. Gibson puts real names and faces to the countless that suffer and die every day because of ineptitude, poor quality, and lack of management in a system that is badly broken. Doctors and nurses also provide first-hand accounts of what actually goes on behind the curtains, describing the mistakes that do happen, but also how terrifyingly close every practitioner is, every moment, to disaster. 1.

The job of an IT manager is constantly changing. The technologies that we used to use are now gone. The technologies that we use today will eventually go away. This means that we need to make sure that we are constantly aware of what new technologies are coming our way and what our teams will be able to do with them. What you´ll find inside: Big data requires IT managers to think about big databases Three questions that every IT manager should be asking about clouds Why IT managers can´t believe all that they read about security breaches What every IT manager needs to know about the Hadoop database solution The arrival of big data has turned the world of IT upside down. As our companies struggle to decide how they are going to make use of this new type of technology, we as IT managers need to make sure that we understand what types of databases we can use to handle all of this data. The way that we build the networks that our teams and our company use has been forever changed by the arrival of cloud computing. This means that we need to take the time to make sure that we understand what this means for us as well as any new security risks that comes along with it. The new technologies that we´ll be using in just a few years take on a number of different forms. It could be the analytics that we´ll all be using to process that big data or perhaps it will be the Hadoop database that we may end up implementing to store all of that data. We need to keep in mind that storing data is one thing, backing it up may be something completely different. All databases are not created the same. The arrival of NOSQL technology has made the choice of what database to use that much more difficult. One thing that we can do to try to make good decisions is to take a look at what other firms, perhaps in healthcare, have done and learn from their mistakes. 1. Language: English.
