The Role of Information and Information Technology in the Management Control Function

Thus, control plays an important role in our daily lives and work. As a source of information, it largely determines decisions as power factor - promotes ordering livelihoods and social processes in a whole. Information technology will allow to realize the function of a control more effectively. Staff resistance control also will decrease if management information system is coordinated with current and strategic objectives of the enterprise. On the other hand, control will allow to improve the quality of information flows, increase their speed, reliability and accuracy.

Managing hemophilia: the role of mobile technology

Managing hemophilia: the role of mobile technology

Abstract: The ubiquity of mobile technology offers the potential for instantaneous and two-way transfer of information, as well as the potential for improving medical care delivery and extend- ing it to those in countries and regions with a less developed medical infrastructure. This review considers the role of mobile health (mHealth) technology in managing hemophilia. This is a disease area in which good record-keeping is an essential component of home-based hemophilia care. Health care professionals contribute patients’ data to national registries and databases and frequently interrogate those data for commercial and academic purposes. Only rarely are the data used to directly improve the care of the individual patient. Patient-focused apps designed to respond to an individual’s personal data may offer the potential to empower patients to live healthier lifestyles, reinforcing the care provided by health care professionals and offering a mechanism for peer-support and promoting adherence to an individualized management plan. Keywords: mHealth, hemophilia, peer-support, adherence

The role of technology in avoiding bias in the design and execution of clinical trials

The role of technology in avoiding bias in the design and execution of clinical trials

(CAPP) trial, which is an example of how selection bias can occur when technology is not used for the implementation of randomization. The purpose of the CAPP trial was to compare the treatment of hypertension by an angiotensin-converting- enzyme inhibitor (captopril) with the conventional therapy. Sealed and sequentially numbered envelopes were used to randomize subjects to the two treatment groups in the trial. However, when the data were analyzed, it was found that the treatment groups had small differences in some of the covari- ates recorded at randomization, including height, weight, and blood pressure. Although small, these differences had a sig- nificant effect on the results of the trial, causing the likelihood of stroke to appear greater in the captopril group. The fact that these differences in the treatment group occurred, combined with reports of violations in the randomization process at cer- tain sites, indicates that there was likely to have been multiple instances of selection bias, thought to have been due to the use of envelopes to randomize subjects.

Role of the latest endovascular technology in the treatment of intermittent claudication

Role of the latest endovascular technology in the treatment of intermittent claudication

Advances in EVT have prompted many physicians to consider more liberal indications of EVT for intermittent claudication with PAD. EVT can achieve effective symptom relief and a patency rate almost comparable with that of bypass surgery in patients with aortoiliac lesions. For femoropopliteal lesions, there is still room for improvement with EVT because patency decreases with increasing length, poor runoff, and diabetes. The use of new technology such as the DES, DCB, stent graft, and bioabsorbable stent seems promising; however, more lib- eral use of EVT for femoropopliteal lesions should be delayed until its efficacy and durability for treatment of intermittent claudication is demonstrated by large-scale studies. To date, multiple randomized controlled trials have shown no signifi- cant difference in effectiveness with regard to symptom relief between EVT and exercise therapy. EVT should be combined with exercise therapy and optimal medical therapies, including cilostazol and statins, which could offer the most effective and sustainable symptom relief for patients.

Current perspectives on the role of telemedicine in the management of Parkinson&rsquo;s disease

Current perspectives on the role of telemedicine in the management of Parkinson&rsquo;s disease

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is also being used to treat patients whose symptoms cannot be adequately controlled with oral medications. This technology delivers continuous impulses to specific areas of the basal ganglia that affect movement. The future of DBS may include devices that respond to a patient’s unique brain signals, delivering impulses only when needed and only to specific cells rather than to a specific area. A recent meta-analysis suggests that targeting the pedunculopontine nucleus specifically may improve postural instability and gait disorder, symptoms that have traditionally remained largely unimproved by DBS treatment. 82 Although it is safe to perform virtual follow-up

Update on the role of modified release mesalamine in the management of ulcerative colitis and Crohn&rsquo;s disease

Update on the role of modified release mesalamine in the management of ulcerative colitis and Crohn&rsquo;s disease

In summary, therefore, there is a significant body of evidence from randomized controlled trials of the efficacy of modified release mesalamine in both induction and main- tenance of remission in UC. This agent generally appears at least as effective as other 5-ASA compounds at comparable doses. Recent developments in 5-ASA delivery technology have not enhanced its effectiveness compared to traditional 5-ASA formulations, though the possibility of once daily dosing may impact on compliance and patient preference.

<p>The perspectives of patients and physicians on the role of pharmacists in improving medication adherence in type 2 diabetes: a qualitative study</p>

Pharmacists in Kuwait, New Zealand and Nigeria consid- ered lack of private counselling areas as a major barrier to providing education and counselling to patients. 13,60,62,64 The need to improve pharmacists ’ therapeutic skills and knowledge of pharmacotherapy has also been mentioned repeatedly by pharmacists. Although they showed positive attitudes towards diabetes management, pharmacists from the US, Canada, New Zealand, Nigeria, Kuwait and Jordan indicated that they need special training in patient educa- tion, because they feel uncon fi dent about undertaking new pharmaceutical care responsibilities, such as medication- related care issues and the importance of tight glycaemic control. 8,13,14,56,60–62,64,71,72 In Ethiopia, the majority of pharmacists stated that they lack knowledge and up-to- date information on medications. 73 Even pharmacists who offered diabetes-related services to patients said that further training and education were required to further develop services. 58 Regarding the use of technology to improve mediation adherence, pharmacists in Kuwait reported their readiness to enhance application of health technology in healthcare systems. 62

The Role of the Arab World in the Liberation  War of Bangladesh

The Role of the Arab World in the Liberation War of Bangladesh

Nay, Colonel Muammar al Gathafi, the steadfast opposer of Bangladesh, after discussing with Bangabandhu in the same summit, started to pray willfully for the well-being of Bangladesh. Independent Bangladesh was, indeed, a reality in terms of time and geographical location. But, this truth could not be realized by the Arabs. They wore the glass of tin on their eyes and cotton in their ears. So, it was quite impossible to let them know the news of genocide and discrimination in Bangladesh. It is easy to wake up a sleeping man, but it is very difficult to wake up a man who took the pretend of sleep. In the age of science and technology, it is not believable that there was ‘information gap’ between the facts in Bangladesh and hearing in the Arab world. But, Dr. Syed Anwar Husain says that it was proved some days later that Muslim world was the victims of Information gap slightly. 70 The Actual fact is that after

The Effectiveness of the Role of Universities in Building the Entrepreneurial Community in Indonesia

The Effectiveness of the Role of Universities in Building the Entrepreneurial Community in Indonesia

However, the development of small industries is not always run smooth. Various obstacles often faced by perpetrators of Small Medium Enterprises, such as the limitation of capital, low awareness of trying, the difficulties of marketing, procurement of raw materials is limited, lack of skills or experience, a business location is not precise and wide range other problems. In addition, Small Medium Enterprises are also faced with various challenges in the global era, such as the market opportunity was wide open, the influx of new technology, efficiency and productivity, as well as competition with new players which is very strict. It is these factors which make the empowerment of SMES is not just a concern of the Government, but also other sectors such as higher education.

The Influence of Transformational Leadership on Innovation of Universities: The Mediating Role of Trust in Leader

The Influence of Transformational Leadership on Innovation of Universities: The Mediating Role of Trust in Leader

The rapid changes in the economic environment in the field of science and technology, the phenomenon of globalization and its challenges, the changing demands of customers, the work in unstable markets, and the increasing competition on products all have forced the organizations to improve their performance for competition [33]. This has made innovation in the product and process as one of the basic concepts of today. One of the most important prerequisites of contemporary administration is that it is no longer enough for organizations to do their work in traditional ways. This leads to failure in many cases, so organizations that strive to succeed need to make innovation and change as distinctive features for them. Many definitions have been introduced for the concept of innovation by researchers; for instance, [34] presented a definition that reflect innovation as the organization’s introduction of new or developed products and methods for marketing. Another definition by [35] indicates that innovation is the process of applying new knowledge by an organization in order to improve and produce new products or services. Accordingly, there are various definitions for the concept, but they all agree on that innovation means to reach something new, whether in idea or in products or services.

The Improvement Of The Technology Of Winter Wheat Grain Production For The Purpose Of Energy Saving

The Improvement Of The Technology Of Winter Wheat Grain Production For The Purpose Of Energy Saving

To divide the unwinnowed heap into grain and chaff, the high-performance aspiration and screening separator ÌN230 (Canada) can be used, which has a throughput rate of 100 t/h. The technology of unwinnowed grain harvesting has been developed in our country for many years by the All-Russia Research Institute for Mechanization of Agriculture (VIM), the All-Union Institute for Agricultural Machine Building (VISHOM), etc., but this technology has not become a frequent practice because of the bulkiness of the stationary processing unit. Currently the availability of the series-produced and tested MN230 separator easily solves the problem of unwinnowed grain harvesting 2,3 .

Impact of Macroeconomic Policy on the Development of the Construction Market  Study of the  Example of Bulgaria

Impact of Macroeconomic Policy on the Development of the Construction Market Study of the Example of Bulgaria

Fiscal actions of government in Bulgaria in the period of the global economic crisis are not very different from those in other countries [8]. The fact is that within the EU, Bulgaria has one of the lowest levels of profit tax and income tax so no changes can be expected in this direction to reduce them for economic incentives. Regarding the state expenditures, there is an active involvement of the state in providing financial resources for the construction of large-scale infrastructure sites. As a relative share of all budgetary expenditures, the expenditure on these activities has more than tripled in the period 2012-2014, compared to 2010. Due to budget constraints in a currency board economy, on the one hand, and on the other, the requirements for the size of the EU budget deficit, the objective is that the funds invested in infrastructure be mainly from European funds and the corresponding co- financing (between 15-20%) from the state. In other words, in times of crisis, with the dwindling activity of private investors in the residential (residential and non-residential) construction market, 80% of orders in the sector come from a single source - from one source - the state funded by EU funds. This situation proves the absence of other alternatives for construction companies and the exclusive role of the state as the sole contracting authority, through fiscal policy, to stop the decline and provide a revival in the construction market. Any reduction in government spending (as well as delayed absorption of EU funds from the state and municipalities) leads to a reduction in the value and volume of public procurement in the sector. This slows down the implementation of a number of large-scale infrastructure projects that, in times of crisis, ensure the work of large firms and the survival of smaller construction firms working as contractors and subcontractors.

The role of <em>calgranulin B</em> gene on the biological behavior of squamous cervical cancer in vitro and in vivo

The role of <em>calgranulin B</em> gene on the biological behavior of squamous cervical cancer in vitro and in vivo

In the present study, the differential transcription of cal- granulin B gene between HPV-positive and HPV-negative cervical cancers and the expression of calgranulin B protein in different squamous cervical cancer cell lines were inves- tigated. Subsequently, we used recombinant adenoviruses or RNA interference to overexpress or downregulate the expres- sion of calgranulin B, respectively, in cervical squamous cell carcinoma, in order to elucidate the role of calgranulin B expression on the biological behavior of squamous cervi- cal cancer. We also investigated the relationship between calgranulin B gene and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) genes in cervical cancer using The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database. Additionally, we assessed whether cal- granulin B would affect the growth of the xenograft model of cervical cancer in nude mice subcutaneously injected

The Image of the Region Element Based on the Activities of Pedestrians

The Image of the Region Element Based on the Activities of Pedestrians

Merdeka and Tugu Area areas has caused changes in visual characters to the image of the area in both public spaces. However, not many people are interested to visit those areas. This shows that the image of the region is less supportive in increasing visitor interest. The image of the public spaces can be assessed based on the views of pedestrian lane users as it has a role as an image booster of the public space. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the image perception of public space elements according to the users with their own types of activity on the pedestrian pathway. The results of the study demonstrated that there are similarities in the parameters and indicators of image of the public space elements from the perception giver based on the type of activity.

The role of crisis prevention from the perspective of the biggest polish companies and public relations agencies on the basis of expert research

The role of crisis prevention from the perspective of the biggest polish companies and public relations agencies on the basis of expert research

that clients come for support in the area of crisis management too late. Only 7% of the respondents concluded that the dominant trend is a situation, when a company wants to cooperate with an agency to appropriately prepare for the risk of emergence of a crisis and to work out an optimum prevention system. In light of the above, actions following the rule that it is better to prevent than to treat, is a rarely used strategy of activity on the market of public relations services. Definitely more often cooperation with entities specialized in crisis management fits in the framework of implementation of impromptu solutions (improvised management of an existing crisis and extinguishing a crisis) — 44%. What is also worrying is very high percentage of responses pointing to cooperation which has been forced by severe consequences of image crises. Up to 32% of the surveyed agencies concluded that companies mainly ask for help in working out a protection system under influence of the negative effects of experienced crises (hindsight is 20/20). The remaining 17% of respondents don't notice a common denominator in the actions of companies looking for crisis-related support.

Update on the role of trabectedin in the treatment of intractable soft tissue sarcomas

Update on the role of trabectedin in the treatment of intractable soft tissue sarcomas

The role of trabectedin as first-line chemotherapy of treatment-naïve patients with non-L-sarcoma has also been investigated. A multicenter, randomized, prospective dose-selection phase IIb superiority clinical trial (TRUSTS trial) compared the efficacy of first-line trabectedin using 2 different schedules (3- and 24-hour infusion) with that of doxorubicin in 133 patients with metastatic STS. The study was initially planned as a combined phase IIb/III study. Preliminary data revealed a lack of superiority of either tra- bectedin schedule over doxorubicin in terms of ORR, PFS, and OS. Based on these results, the study was discontinued after the phase IIb part of the research. 63

The Pragmatism of the Court of Justice on the Detention of Irregular Migrants: Comment on Affum

The Pragmatism of the Court of Justice on the Detention of Irregular Migrants: Comment on Affum

A relevant development of the Affum case is the adoption of a rather pragmatic approach towards the issue of detention of irregular migrants. The Court decided to address the issue of the detention of irregular migrants with a purely procedural argument: among penalties, detention (or imprisonment) is surely the most afflictive for the return proce- dure, and consequently, it should not be applied to persons who have not committed any violation of the law, except for their own illegal presence within the territory of the Mem- ber State. The Court declined to use other arguments: in particular, those based on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights or on the working documents produced by the EU Fun- damental Rights Agency 23 on the use of detention as a last resort. 24 The choice seems to

The Effects of Touch Screen Technology on the Usability of E-Reading Devices

The Effects of Touch Screen Technology on the Usability of E-Reading Devices

By the end of September 2010, 11 million Americans were expected to own at least one digital reading device (Fowler & Baca, 2010). U.S. e-book sales grew 183% in the first half of 2010 compared with the year-earlier period, according to the Association of American Publishers (Fowler & Baca, 2010). E-reading is a trend. There are many advantages associated with an e- reading device; for example, you can carry an almost endless number of e-books with you, or you can search the e-book for keywords to locate information quickly. Two different types of e- reading devices are prevalent: dedicated e-book readers (such as the Nook Reader, the Kindle Reader, the Kobo Reader or the Sony Reader, which all use e-ink screen technology) and tablets. E-ink technology has low power consumption, thereby increasing battery life and allowing for a more lightweight device. For example, the new Kindle reader can run up to a month with one battery charge. Another advantage is that e-ink devices can be used outside without glare being a big issue. E-ink displays almost look like printed paper. However, e-ink screens have some disadvantages, most of them are black and white and the pages do not refresh as quickly as devices with an LCD screen. E-ink screens are not illuminated, which means you cannot read in the dark, and you must depend on an external light source. E-ink e- readers are specialized e-reading devices, and they are limited to reading. By contrast, tablet- PCs (tablets) are small computers; their use is not limited to reading. The LCD screens found on all tablets (and the Nook Color e-ink reader) are color displays. But those advantages have downsides: The reflective screens on LCD tablets have higher power consumption, most of the devices are quite heavy, and the glass-like display surface makes it hard to read in bright light. However, it has been reported that under artificial light conditions that are often present in offices or living rooms
