In a 32-bit computer, data buss size is 32-bits wide, wherein buss size gets doubled in a 64-bit computer, so 64 bit computer is capable of carrying twice the size of data around the system elements.
- 64-bit machines are having more advanced security features like Kernel Patch Protection
- 64-bit device drivers are digitally signed to avoid random crashes.
- Context to web surfing it may not demonstrate significant difference but heavy graphics processing and scientific calculations will be more efficient in 64 bit computers.
- Strongly recommended for graphics applications ie: photo, video, games, CAD, etc.
- A 64-bit OS allows you to run greater memory wherein 32-bit restricted to maximum of 4 GB RAM.

Diagnostic is the key element of health treatment process; Even experts need patients’ diagnostic done to identify disorder precisely. In the present scenario, abundance of labs doesn't guarantee precise diagnostic as all the samples might not under go testing as quickly as taken from patients, and tend to loose its veracity. Also, there are many chances for samples not reaching to diagnostic equipment in original form, so results can always be challenged.
There are many reasons for lack of precision in lab reports:-
• Poor collections logistics and process.
• Quality and advancement of technology usage.
• Intention behind test recommendation.
More than 80% diagnostics ordered by physicians turn out with negative results! Isn’t it big surprise? My mind is trying to disentangle few questions-
1. Aren't Physicians qualified enough in triage process?
2. Is Physician’s intention restricted to precise diagnostic?
3. Does lab test charges includes Physicians’ commission as well?

Graphics registers faster than textual information, so dashboards speak an international language. Study after study, experiment after experiment has proven that information in visual forms have superior precision; even researchers claim- visual information quickly affects both cognitive and emotional system of a human.
Communication do exist since birth of human civilization. Information through representational elements like images and graphics are deciphered simultaneously by human brain while language is decoded in a linear and sequential fashion.
Context to decision making process, quick availability of actionable information is key for all the business enterprises. Performance Dashboards are designed specially for business executives to visualize business performance and make decision for next course.
Dashboards are highly effective business intelligence tools, nonetheless there are basic slip-ups made while designing a dashboard, which leads to unrewarding intelligence as well as ineffective practice.
Some points to keep in mind while designing a executive dashboards:-
1. Lets not clutter the information – Make sure it provides at-a-glance views of KPIs
2. Designers to wear executive shoes - Focus on information sequence.
3. Right chart for information precision– Its not Rangoli to be designed, so usage of charts to be objective.
4. Remember your car Dashboard– Limit overview in just a single page.
Every executive would like to see their business performance of each products & services on various time scales, and further drilldown to region, locations, entity level. They would also be interested to learn ROI on each specific product and service in entity level and data aggregation back to top.
Psychologist Albert Mehrabian demonstrated that 93% of communication is nonverbal so dashboards should have information synchrony and reciprocity between business and executives. Business performance dashboards should be made discrete using interactive maps drilling down to region, location, entity levels.
Dashboards should provide visibility to critical business activities and a complete overview business activities with easy-to-read interface along with historical trends of an business KPIs (key performance indicators) to enable instant and appropriate decisions at a glance.

On a lighter note- Isn't office cannibalism to be a required subject in college course? It can be better framed in beautiful titles like "corporate attitude" or "real keys to corporate success" or so on... for effective POS!– Education evangelists to give it a thought!
Submissive Note - Lets not put label of ‘Explorer’ or ‘Soldier’ or ‘Aghori’ on ‘office cannibalism/ politics’ experts in corporate land :)

Realizing the roller-coaster practice with the use of forces in healthcare space over the past two decade impart an important context for deliberations of likely future advancements in the nature of competition in healthcare IT market. The vision of integrated healthcare services to enable medical information exchange context to patient care is buzzword in Gen “Y”-healthcare ecology. But the greatest potential and larger role lies in consumers’ education and their act to apply pressure on providers to improve the quality of care.
However health education and patient care has become simple with the advancements of healthcare information technology in the developed countries over the last one decade. We must view the advancement in healthcare informatics as a blessings rather than a challenge to medical administration even in Indian milieu. Advancement in healthcare information technology would be taking healthcare to the most remote corners of the country to serve millions of diffident and ignored populace. Educated class is expected lending a hand to others through the transitions of healthcare informatics to strengthen upcoming generations.
To make healthcare IT customary in India, it may be helpful to prioritize the education approach - provider or consumer - to focus on first. Although, there is no definitive - right or wrong approach here, one might want to look at advancement from a provider perspective and another from consumer centric. Healthcare providers can well educate consumers about new systems, so a smooth transition on the consumer side can take place.
One particular daunting aspect of healthcare IT adoption amongst the medical fraternity is direct impact over their business norms, especially in the Indian context. Adoption of any system should proportionate the size and scope of the business endeavor. IT usage in healthcare space will affect every one - both provider and consumer. Such opportunity - electronic medical records of consumers and efficient administration of healthcare functions - two purposes squarely in the bulls-eye of healthcare IT advancements in India.

India accounts for the highest number of child mortality (child death under five years of age) in the world at 1.95 million per year. With over 240 million children under the age of five, India contributes 25 percent of the world’s child deaths. It is evident that a major turnaround in India will ensure a significant impact globally!. “More than 1 million child deaths in India can easily be prevented every year.” – UNISEF. What is baffling is that a vast majority of these deaths could be easily averted. Simple measures like exclusive breast-feeding for six months can prevent child deaths by a good 16%. Proven strategies and interventions such as keeping the newborn baby sufficiently warm, neonatal resuscitation, micronutrient supplements such as vitamin A and zinc and antibiotics for sepsis, pneumonia and dysentery are expected to be discussed.
Almost 10.5 million children, under age of 5 years die every year in the world. Nonetheless visible progress has been made since 1970, when the count was more than 17 million. These reductions did not take place uniformly across time and regions, but the success stories in developing countries demonstrate clearly that low mortality levels are attainable in those settings. The effects of such achievements are not to be underestimated. If the whole world were able to share the present child mortality experience of Iceland (the lowest in the world in 2002), over 10 million child deaths could be prevented each year. Fifteen other countries, mainly European countries but including Japan and Singapore, had child mortality rates in 2002 of less than 5 per 1000 live births.
Research and experience show that most of the children who die each year could be saved by low-tech, evidence-based, cost-effective measures such as vaccines, antibiotics, micronutrient supplementation, insecticide-treated bed nets, improved family care and breastfeeding practices, and oral rehydration therapy.
“The main causes of death are pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, measles, neonatal fatalities, and HIV.” –WHO. 1 child dies every 5 seconds as a result of hunger, 700 every hour, 16 000 each day, 6 million each year - 60% of all child deaths. Children are at greater risk of dying globally if they are poor. Socioeconomic differences contributes major part in child mortality; malnutrition and the lack of safe water and hygiene contribute to half of all these children’s deaths.
Your voice counts- Help to educate neighborhood to save precious lives.
