She asked Hwang to come to Maryland to be a part of President Barack Obama's "tech surge," the call-to-arms to fix the Healthcare.gov disaster.

How to design a 'smart' hospital
Healthcare Design
To respond to a technologically driven environment of care and prepare for its evolution in the future, healthcare providers must consider bolstering the patient experience both inside their facilities and out through a keen focus on connectivity, communication and access to information. Healthcare architects and designers have a unique opportunity to unite architecture and technology by creating dynamic and engaging settings that cater to the individualized needs of patients and identifying opportunities for staff and administrators that broaden treatment options as well as where that treatment is provided.

Simulation manikins keep it real for nursing students
Seton Hall University
A group of nursing students leans over a six-year-old child to listen for breath sounds. Nothing. They call a "code" and start chest compressions. Soon, the child's gurgling and crying assure the students that the child has revived. In another room, a group of nursing students is dealing with a man who is having a seizure. They assess his condition. His pupils are dilated. He is sweating and shaking, and his blood pressure is rising. They administer anti-seizure medication and the crisis is over. While these may sound like scenes from the latest emergency room drama on TV, they are being played out in Seton Hall lab rooms with nursing students. Thanks to a generous grant from The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, the College of Nursing purchased two state-of-the-art simulation manikins, SimMan 3G and SimJunior by Laerdal.

A link between blood and plasma trace metals in Alzheimer's disease?
By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia in the elderly, with a rapidly increasing prevalence. In the past three decades, we have witnessed remarkable advances in our understanding of AD, both in terms of the disease course and its symptoms. About 20 genes have been identified to be associated with an altered risk for late onset AD, which could potentially serve as new therapeutic candidates. However, the risk variability and limited power of allelic risk candidates have led to the conclusion that there must be other factors, such as toxic exposure and environmental factors.

CMS says no to additional meaningful use and ICD-10 delays
By Pamela Lewis Dolan
Despite pleas from organized medicine, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says there will be no delays to Stage 2 of the meaningful use incentive program.
