Why Technology Is Set to Play a Larger Role in Life Sciences

Why Technology Is Set to Play a Larger Role in Life Sciences

Historically the life sciences industry has considered information technology to be a way of completing basic functions, rather than as an intrinsic or vital part of their work.

Over time technology is reaching into the life sciences world as patients become more engaged in their care and data collection and analytics become ever more useful.

Change In the Health Care Sector

The healthcare sector is swiftly being challenged and changed by technological advances. Healthcare providers are increasingly looking to offer new and different methods to provide healthcare to their users and healthcare users are expecting a more personalized service.

Current healthcare users expect their care to be clear to them at every step. They expect transparency, a smooth service, convenience and to be included in decision making at every stage in their healthcare journey.

Data analysis and service automation can lead to an increase in productivity for a life sciences company as well as allowing a more personalized service. With the addition of digital technologies, outcomes can be improved, and patients receive a more engaging experience. If a life sciences company wants to ensure that it is a leader in the healthcare industry, it must consider the service its users expect.

Digital Markets

Digital markets give access to vital data that can be collected, analysed, and used to create solutions for both life sciences companies and their users. Having technological solutions that link with the life sciences will allow the life sciences sector to develop clear strategies and solutions within their service.

Any life science company that wishes to be a leader in its sector would do well to fully embrace digital markets and all the advantages they can bring.

New Platforms

Modern technologies and new ways of looking at technology within the life science sector can allow a company to look at the basic technology they use and decide what needs to change to fulfil its true potential.

To future-proof themselves life sciences companies need to embrace the latest cloud-based technology and consider the newest platforms available. This will boost patient satisfaction while also streamlining operations for staff.

Opportunity Soars as Drone Delivery Services Take Flight

Opportunity Soars as Drone Delivery Services Take Flight

In the age of automation and same-day delivery, the race for companies to develop widespread, reliable package dropoff via drones has only just begun. With years of development tucked into the design and testing grounds, drone services are finally being implemented and utilized by the public. However, these tryouts have been met with varying degrees of success.

Reporter Timothy B. Lee in a piece for states, “Earlier this month, Google’s sister company, Wing, began offering a drone delivery service in the Dallas suburbs of Frisco and Little Elm. Wing drones take off from ‘nests’ in two Walgreens parking lots to deliver things like health products or ice cream to nearby customers. Wing describes it as ‘the first ever commercial drone delivery service in a major US metropolitan area.’”

So far, Wing’s drone delivery service has been an all-around victory. With successful safety measures, impressive speed both in flight and trade-off, and a high demand for the service, it’s no wonder that the company recently crossed their 200,000 delivery mark.

“Wing has obtained [a Federal Aviation Administration (FFA)] waiver allowing it to fly beyond the visual line of sight. That allows Wing to offer deliveries as far as four miles away from a drone’s home base. Wing’s waiver also allows flights over people. This allows drones to pick up a new package by hovering about 23 feet (seven meters) in the air and extending a tether down to the ground.”

From order to drop off, interaction with delivery workers or the drone itself is never necessary on the patron’s part, meaning service is quick, easy, and pandemic-approved.

Walmart’s “DroneUp” has seen similar success in its startup. Though the drones are slower and heavier than the ones from Wing, and the company has a harder time obtaining waivers from the FFA, their safety and satisfaction rate has been stellar.

“FAA regulations prohibit a drone from flying over people or moving vehicles. [Tom Walker, founder of DroneUp] says that DroneUp’s aircraft have ‘the ability to dynamically route around areas where [people and moving vehicles] might be, and also have sensors that let us know where people are on the ground.’ The drones also have multiple redundancies to help ensure that the failure of any one component won’t cause it to crash.”

Fast, smart, and safe, DroneUp is customer-approved and ready to grow their services. Walmart plans to expand the operation from 200 to 600 people this year, with a significant percentage of that new workforce being comprised of drone operators.

Despite the success of Walmart’s DroneUp and Google’s Wing, not all big-brand drone delivery services have had the same smooth sailing with their debuts. Amazon has yet to create an approved drone, much less implement a widespread system. Heavy and unsafe, the online retail giant’s drones have not been able to meet FFA standards.

“An article in Wired last year described the turmoil in the UK branch of Amazon’s drone project. Amazon started testing delivery drones in the UK in 2016, but by 2021 people were telling Wired that the program was “‘“collapsing inwards,” “dysfunctional,” and resembled “organised chaos” run by managers that were “detached from reality,”’” recounts Lee.

Even if a widespread rollout of delivery drones hasn’t become reality quite yet, there is no doubt it will be soon with our rapidly evolving technology. And when those billion dollar retail giants call for skilled experts to design, built, test, and operate their drones, will you be ready?

Quantum-Charged Electric Cars

Quantum-Charged Electric Cars

Amidst the race for clean energy output, electric vehicles (EVs) are taking a favorable spin around the globe. As a greener option compared to diesel and gas powered engines, a new generation has popped up, preferring to drive solely on electrically charged engines.

However, the day to day maintenance of such an engine can be cumbersome. According to reporter Martin M. Barillas in a article, cars “may take as long as 10 hours to fully charge at home, while even superchargers at charging stations take 30–40 minutes to provide a full charge.”

With such a long wait paired against minimal driving time, the curve towards drivers who prefer electric vehicles remains stunted. However, brand new battery technology may soon put EVs back on the leaderboard as keys to a green future.

“Scientists at Korea’s Institute for Basic Science (IBS)… [have discovered] new quantum technologies that can quickly charge batteries. They drew inspiration from a 2012 study, which proposed the quantum battery concept and theorized that quantum resources such as entanglement may charge batteries at a vastly faster rate by charging all cells in a battery simultaneously,” the Newsweek article explains.

Currently, electric car batteries cannot be charged all at once, and the need to refill them one at a time is the main source of pacing issues. With the quantum batteries, not only would this issue be erased, but charging would be exponentially faster.

“A team of scientists from the Center for Theoretical Physics of Complex Systems at IBS… found that unlike classical batteries (e.g., lithium-ion batteries), where maximum charging speeds increase according to the number of cells, quantum batteries with global operation may achieve quadratic scaling in charging speed.

“[A]s quantum batteries increase in size, charging times become faster. For example, when going from 1 to 2, instead of increasing by a factor of 2, it increases by a factor of 4, and when going from 1 to 10, it increases by a factor of 100.”

With this supercharged factoring, a normal at-home charge would be reduced from double digit hours to just a few minutes, while wait times at public charging stations would go down to mere seconds. And if such technology succeeds, it could be utilized for purposes outside travel.

“Quantum charging may be used someday in consumer electronics as well as in fusion power plants, which need large bursts of energy for instant charging and discharging. However, the researchers caution that quantum technologies still need years of research before they can be introduced to revolutionize energy use and green technologies.”

It may take some time yet for quantum technology to be thoroughly researched and approved, but if enough dedicated people join the team to make it a reality, these batteries could come sooner than we hope.

Capitol Tech offers many opportunities in engineering, where you can join the pursuit to make electric car batteries sustainable and quick to power.

Why your customer health scores aren’t actionable for predicting retention

Why your customer health scores aren’t actionable for predicting retention

Key considerations for companies seeking a more predictive model to assess customer health

Key takeaways

  • Customer success functions, and the account health scores they create, are in the spotlight.
  • Health scores often focus on what is easy to measure, not what provides actionable insight into accounts.
  • Tech companies looking to use health scores to guide their decisions need to build that data on a more solid foundation.

Health scores should be derived from a balance of qualitative and quantitative data

In a subscription economy, the revenue focus of many technology companies has shifted from closing new deals to renewing subscription contracts and expanding sales among existing customers in order to continually grow accounts. Understanding how likely an account is to renew has become a core focus of company financials, making customer retention a hot topic. As a result, customer success functions, and the account health scores they create, are in the spotlight.

As these customer health scores become increasingly strategic, many companies are realizing their current approach to calculating them leaves a lot to be desired—that was the topic of a recent Technology & Services Industry Association webinar sponsored by RSM US LLP. Health scores often focus on what is easy to measure, not what provides actionable insight into accounts, according to the TSIA, which has developed benchmarks to help tech companies more accurately measure customer health.

Growing AgTech in Greater Baltimore

Growing AgTech in Greater Baltimore

It often surprises people to learn that agriculture is the number one commercial employer in Maryland and an industry that statewide produces $2.2B in output each year. The Greater Baltimore region alone has over 3,750 farms spanning 430,000 acres and producing over $400M in output each year.

More widely known is the Region’s top rankings in the science and technology industry, with a #1 national ranking in workforce, and placing among the top three large metropolitan areas in density of workers in six of the most common IT job categories.

The continued growth of these two industries – Ag and IT – is central to the economic health of the Region as a whole. More importantly, over the last decade or so, these sectors have become integrated into a new sector due to the application of technology in farming to improve yield, operating efficiency and profitability for farmers and growers. 

AgTech is changing how agriculture operates due to advancements in technologies that are being adopted as “standard operating procedures,” including use of devices such as drones, sensors and AI. Today’s growers are using aerial imaging, temperature and moisture sensors, robots and GPS technology, resulting in operations that are more profitable, efficient, safer and more environmentally friendly. An example of the efficiencies that can be realized is the use of drones to monitor water levels and irrigation leaks or voids from the skies. A grower can identify these issues within a fraction of the time it would take to drive hundreds of acres of crops for a visual inspection.

Rising global population growth results in the need to increase food production. Overlaying the need to preserve natural resources and conserve both land and water results in a dynamic that stresses the very resource-intensive agriculture industry to produce “more and faster.”

Several technological adaptations to farming are focused on addressing this challenging dynamic with the goal of maximizing crop yields while conserving water and land:

  • Precision Agriculture:  applying artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) can provide farmers with more precise data that can help them adjust to often unpredictable variables that impact yield
  • Robotics and Automation: incorporating these technologies can reduce the manual labor needed for farming, resulting in cost savings as well as increased yield by minizine human error. As noted above, the use of drones to monitor irrigation in water-scarce regions can significantly reduce water usage.
  • Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA):  commonly known as hydroponics, the cultivation of plants indoors in a water-based solution instead of soil in a controlled indoor environment allows for food production anywhere, anytime, including in urban settings.

An example of hydroponic farming is Gotham Greensa fresh food and urban agricultural companyThe company opened a 100,000-square-foot greenhouse in late 2019 at Tradepoint Atlantic in Baltimore County. Gotham Greens uses hydroponic growing techniques which enable it to supply produce year-round to customers including retailers and restaurants. As reported by the trade publication Progressive Grocer in 2019, “Gotham Green’s produce is grown using hydroponic systems in 100 percent renewable electricity-powered greenhouses that use 95 percent less water and 97 percent less land than conventional farming.”

In Carroll County, Catoctin Hemp is a CBD growing and processing company working with many farmers to help dry, extract, and formulate hemp plants into retail-ready products. An important tech factor in their process is an automated Butane extraction (BHO) machine. With this, the company can set precise recipes and run consistent batches of biomass extraction. The extraction technology allows Catoctin Hemp to capture as much of the plant’s natural profile as possible, resulting in effective, quality products.

Nearby, Catoctin Mtn Growers is a wholesale producer of bedding plants, vegetables, perennials, fall mums, poinsettias, and house plants under a  23-acre, state-of-the-art glass greenhouse. With grant funding from TEDCO, the company recently partnered with a LED lighting company in Maryland to install over 200 LED fixtures in their young plant propagation house. The improvement will allow Catoctin to grow more young plants and increase the quality of more light sensitive plants. They are also developing an outdoor boom to use on late spring annuals and fall mums. An irrigation boom offers many advantages to a greenhouse, but outdoor irrigation booms are a little more difficult and less readily available in the industry. The system Catoctin is developing will have automated irrigation schedules, belts for plant transport, and frost protection in early spring.

AgTech has been amplified in Harford County through the work of Dr. Sharon Stowers, Harford Community College‘s Scholar-in-Residence, in HCC’s agriculture project: Gathering at the Community Table: Celebrating Harford’s Farms and Food. The project created a collation of farmers and nonprofit agencies – the Farmers and Community Partnership of Harford County – to discuss and implement programing and projects for the community. Special projects include a GIS web-based interactive map, The Harford Farm Finder, that allows the public to locate farms in the county and what products they are producing and selling, and the film “Rooted in Agriculture.” In the film, Rick Holloway, of Holloway Brothers Farm, explains how he uses technology to farm: view the film here (film credits: directing and producing: Sharon Stowers, Ph.D., RD; production: Sympatico; film sponsored by: Farmers and Community Partnership of Harford County).

Across the country, investors are taking note of technology advancements that are making inroads into the Agriculture industry. Bloomberg reported that as of the end of 2021, investors had poured a record $7.8 billion into AgTech deals in 2021. They predict that the growing demand for climate-friendly investments, food security and productivity gains will continue to drive investment in start-ups as well as established companies focused on developing tomorrow’s technologies to address today and tomorrow’s food production challenges.

It is clear that Greater Baltimore is well-positioned for the growing AgTech sector to thrive.

May is Older Americans Month: Definitive Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease Helps More Americans Get the Support They Need Sooner

May is Older Americans Month: Definitive Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease Helps More Americans Get the Support They Need Sooner

First autopsy-validated, highly accurate, and minimally invasive DISCERN™ test is now available to support a clinician’s definitive diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease versus other, possibly curable conditions, giving individuals an opportunity to get the right treatment plan sooner—while giving families greater peace of mind. 

May is Older Americans Month (OAM) and a great time to focus on the needs of older Americans to better help them remain in their homes and live independently for as long as possible. Optimal health is an important concern for many older adults, especially for those facing the symptoms of dementia.

When dementia symptoms develop, it’s important to know if an individual is exhibiting Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or some other condition that can be curable or managed with different interventions. An early diagnosis of AD can help to alleviate worry for older Americans and get them on the right AD therapeutic journey sooner.

Fortunately, there is good news: the first highly accurate, minimally invasive skin test supporting a clinician’s definitive diagnosis of AD versus other forms of dementia, even in early disease, is now available. This test is designed to accurately assess the loss of synaptic activity in the brain, where memories lie, due to AD.

Right Diagnosis

Typically, AD can take years to diagnose. The condition tends to progress slowly and affects people in different ways. On average, a person with AD lives four to eight years after diagnosis, but can live as long as 20 years, depending on other factors.

Without a definitive diagnosis, many families are left with a frustrating and expensive uphill battle in the care journey.

Early Diagnosis

An early AD diagnosis allows patients to get treatment sooner, saving time, money and the hopelessness that patients and caregivers often feel when they don’t know what to do. Early diagnosis also gives patients the chance to have a say in their care.

Now that there are more treatment options becoming available for people with AD dementia, having an accurate diagnosis of AD earlier in the disease journey is of growing importance to older Americans.

During Older Americans Month, we hope that more people will take the time to consider how to improve quality of life for the older people in their lives, including new ways to help them age in place and get the best possible healthcare.

5 Common Cloud Computing and Connectivity Challenges

5 Common Cloud Computing and Connectivity Challenges

According to Gartner, spending for enterprise cloud platforms will increase 14% by 2024. One reason is that, especially for small to medium sized businesses, cloud computing is proving to be 40x more cost effective than having in-house IT systems and data centers. The public cloud (as opposed to a private cloud) is easy to use, cost-efficient, and scalable. Yet migration is not a simple task and success is not a given, especially when organizations encounter unanticipated obstacles.

Pranav Kondala, solutions architect for Hughes, identified some of the most common challenges enterprises experience when it comes to cloud computing and connectivity in a recent discussion. These include:

  1. Lack of knowledge and expertise. Many businesses launch cloud computing initiatives without realizing they do not have the right talent available in-house to support their digital transformation. Additionally, Mr. Kondala notes, “with cloud architecture expertise in high demand, finding talent in this market has challenges of its own.”
  2. Visibility. Moving workloads to the public cloud means losing many of the controls an enterprise once maintained with on-premises solutions. Cloud providers do not grant their customers direct access to shared infrastructure and traditional monitoring infrastructure will not, in many cases, work in the cloud. While cloud providers may provide log files detailing workload activity, without also having access to data packets, analysts or operations teams can’t use these log files to investigate alerts, identify root causes and remediate threats. Lack of packet data will also limit their ability to investigate performance issues in complex cloud environments.
  3. Data protection and privacy. When it comes to securing data in the cloud, it is important to understand subtle differences between on-premises versus cloud security approaches. It is a myth that the cloud is always more secure than on-prem capabilities. Even though the cloud service provider may assure data integrity, it is always the enterprise’s responsibility to understand what the provider is doing to protect against intruders and keep up to date on the latest security fixes, as well as the steps they’ll take in the event of a breach. “Having the right security posture from Day 0 is critical for any cloud migration effort,” stressed Mr. Kondala.
  4. Secured connectivity into the public cloud. Especially for the distributed enterprise with hundreds of locations, secure connectivity to the public cloud is complex and relies on so many different providers – all of which have unique infrastructures, capabilities and costs. It is also time and resource intensive for IT teams to manage multiple providers.
  5. Performance may vary. As with any scenario involving service providers, an enterprise may experience performance variances between or within vendors. Yet when network performance suffers due to cloud connectivity, so does the user experience. Mr. Kondala advises paying careful attention to network issues, such as latency, packet loss, and congestion, which can undermine cloud application performance.

One of the greatest ways to mitigate these and other challenges is to invest in training and certification for the IT team members responsible for managing the cloud strategy and implementation. Another option is to turn to a Managed Network Services Provider (MNSP), like Hughes, that offers deep bench expertise to address these and other challenges and optimize cloud performance once the shift is complete. An MNSP can lead transition efforts or supplement an internal IT team’s activity, providing the resources needed to efficiently grow a business’ capabilities.

“The cloud environment and data center are incredibly different footprints. It is important that your teams are trained to embrace and understand what is required of a realistic cloud strategy. Whether you are just starting off with cloud computing or are in mid-migration, finding the right talent is critical and can save a lot of money and trouble in the long run,” Mr. Kondala said.

About HIV
According to UNAIDS, approximately 37.7 million people worldwide live with HIV/AIDS. In the United States, government statistics show 1.2 million people have HIV and estimate that 34,800 Americans were newly infected with HIV in 2019. Across the globe, UNAIDS estimates that approximately 1.5 million individuals were newly infected with HIV in 2020. The Washington D.C./Baltimore area is often cited as a ‘hot spot’ for HIV, with Washington, D.C., having the highest rate of infection at nearly 46 cases per 100,000 population and Baltimore City having rates of 17 cases per 100,000. Maryland also ranks sixth among U.S. states and territories in HIV diagnosis rates, with more than 900 new cases in 2019 alone, according to the Maryland Department of Health.

Since the late 1980s, antiretroviral drugs have restored quality of life to persons living with HIV and, in some cases, have even been used to prevent new infections. However, no approved treatment has demonstrated the ability to cure HIV. AGT is committed to addressing this unmet medical need.
