Twitter Reveals Redesign Plans

 

Twitter has revealed today its redesign and new look for the website.  Offering what seems to be a more simple experience, the social media website’s new design makes sharing in under 140 characters easier.

Navigation has changed on the social media site. Starting at Home, you can view most recent tweets and conversations from those you follow. Sectioned off in an angular design, the new Home tab keeps everything you want right at your fingertips. Photos and videos are now embedded within Tweets, for easier viewing. Additionally, a big change for Twitter is its consistency, displaying the same style across all platforms from computers and tablets to mobile phones.

Twitter’s new Connect tab simplifies following the conversation. Keep tabs on what’s going on. The Connect tab displays tweets that have recently mentioned, retweeted or favourited  account as well as new followers.

The Discover tab compiles content that Twitter believes you’ll be interested in, completely customized to your account. The tab allows for new content discovery—whether it’s someone new to follow, trending hashtags and more, the Twitter experience becomes more fruitful.

Your Twitter profile section is changing as well, putting your interests “front and center.” Find your lists, favourites, followers and direct messages on this new Me tab.

Finally, tweeting has never been simpler. No matter what tab you’ve selected, users can tweet at any point in their Twitter experience.

Launching soon, early adopters can download the Twitter for iPhone or Twitter for Android app to get instant access.

Following in the footsteps of Facebook’s constant redesign, Twitter’s last update was in September 2010. Will Twitter’s new design be accepted by those who frequent the site or rejected as adamantly as Facebook’s followers have before? In the end, design on the Internet has become much more simple in general. Those days of social media networks with clutter, such as MySpace, are clearly long gone.

Health Catalyst: An agile approach to healthcare data

How to get the most out of your investment in data with Health Catalyst

 

Healthcare Catalyst is quite literally a healthcare providers’ catalyst for change when it comes to their measurable, data-informed improvement in analytics, software and services.

Founded in 2008 in Salt Lake City, Utah, Health Catalyst is dedicated to enabling health care organisations to build a healthcare-specific, open, flexible, and scalable data platform and fully integrated suite of analytics applications.

This enables health system partners, including Northwell Health in New York which serves a population of 11 million, to realise measurable value within months. “Our customers have recognised the potential to use data, to meaningfully improve their clinical, financial and operational business performance outcomes,” said Mike Doyle, Chief Customer Officer.

Formed by a group of healthcare veterans – with a quest to develop a data warehouse that could handle the complexities unique to healthcare data – they revolutionised the clinical process models and use of analytics and discovered the solution now known as Adaptive Data Architecture, which is agile, flexible and can be implemented in a matter of weeks compared to a matter of years.

Today, Health Catalyst helps clinicians in more than 250 hospitals that care for more than 100 million patients each year.

Health Catalyst offers a solution in three parts:

Data Operating System

Cloud-based DOS is a healthcare-specific, open, flexible, and scalable that provides customers a single environment to integrate and organise data.

Analytics Applications

Analytics applications build on top of the data platform and allow customers to make measurable clinical, financial and operational improvements.

Services Expertise

World-class team of analytics and domain experts leverage technology to help customers shorten time-to-value and achieve sustainable, measurable improvements.

The fully integrated data platform and suite of analytics applications helped clients during the pandemic, in ways even Health Catalyst could never have imagined. Health Catalyst offered products and services to support customers’ agile response to the pandemic in four phases:

  • Prepare.
  • Prevent.
  • Recover.
  • Plan.

“By having the data operating system, our clients were able to take advantage of the integrated source of data to meet challenges that they were facing in their local geographies due to the pandemic in ways that we could never even have predicted,” said Doyle.

Doyle highlighted Health Catalyst’s Value Architecture group, which helps the company ensure that its technology and expertise are delivering measurable and meaningful value to our clients.  “I think another key differentiator is our open platform that our clients are able to use to accelerate their own integration of data, but it is customisable, configurable in ways that makes it unique for them in ways other cookie cutter analytics just can’t match. 

“We like to start every discussion by listening and understanding how we can help our customers avoid making mistakes and getting the most out of their investment in data.”

Speaking about their partnership with Northwell, Doyle said: “We're very grateful for this partnership and want to thank these visionary leaders who are able to envision a future using data that is light years beyond what we can think of today.”
