Call for Nominations: 2013 TripleTree iAwards for Wireless Health

TripleTree and the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance (WLSA) announce a “call for nominations” for the 5th Annual TripleTree iAwards for Wireless Health.

The growth and popularity of the iAwards has become synonymous with how healthcare is being shaped by connected health solutions encompassing wireless, cloud, and social technologies.

Online applications for the 2013 iAwards will be accepted from companies and their financial sponsors through March 29. Twelve finalists will be named in April, and three winners announced at WLSA’s 8th Annual Convergence Summit May 28-30, 2013 in San Diego, CA.

iAward nominees will be evaluated on a range of criteria including the uniqueness of their solution; marketplace traction; clinical, operational or consumer relevance; size of addressable market and international presence across three categories:

  • Operational Effectiveness
  • Clinical Effectiveness
  • Consumer Engagement

The twelve finalists will be invited to present and exhibit at the Convergence Summit, which annually attracts over 350 healthcare executives, innovators, thought leaders and investors from across the globe.

TripleTree founded the iAwards in 2009 to recognize innovation, insight, and initiative in digital health. Past TripleTree iAward winners include Homecare Homebase, Silverlink, Telcare, BodyMedia, Cambridge Temperature Concepts, and Phreesia.

Online applications can be accessed at the TripleTree (www.triple-tree.com) and Wireless Life Sciences Alliance (www.wireless-lifesciences.org) websites. The application fee is $250.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
