BD Launches Enhanced Antimicrobial Stewardship Analytics Capabilities

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today announced its latest advancement in combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR) with new analytics integrated into the company’s connected medication management platform that identifies when an inappropriate and potentially ineffective antibiotic has been prescribed, based on a patient’s specific infection diagnosis.

There is a heightened focus on antimicrobial stewardship across the health care industry with new reimbursement standards released by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requiring hospitals to comply with certain infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship requirements.1,2 Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its updated “Threat Report” – noting antibiotic-resistant bacteria and fungi cause more than 2.8 million infections and 35,000 deaths in the United States each year.3 Despite public transparency, heightened awareness and financial penalties, hospitals continue to struggle with the burden of health care associated infections (HAIs) and AMR. To help combat these challenges, BD will unveil new antimicrobial stewardship functionality within the BD HealthSight™ connected medication management platform at this year’s American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Meeting being held in Las Vegas from Dec. 9-11.

BD HealthSight™ Clinical Advisor is a new functionality within the BD HealthSight™ connected medication management platform that aggregates disparate patient data to provide clinicians with the ability to receive near real-time medication stewardship alerts within the pharmacy workflow. These actionable alerts are delivered within the connected medication management process to help health care providers prevent not only the administration of inappropriate antibiotics, but also the potential waste of resources associated with compounding and preparing unnecessary medication for delivery. Clinical stewardship programs are also supported through customized dashboards, robust reports and the ability to automate the submission of antimicrobial utilization data for regulatory reporting.

“BD is uniquely positioned to deliver some of the most innovative strategies to address the systemic issues associated with medication management,” said Ranjeet Banerjee, worldwide president of Medication Management Solutions for BD. “We continue to develop actionable solutions to complex health issues that require a multifaceted approach, such as AMR and hospital drug diversion. Our latest advancement in antimicrobial stewardship is a fundamental example of our dedication to help health care workers improve patient outcomes.”

Since introducing the BD HealthSight™ platform in 2017, BD has expanded and strengthened its offerings of connected technologies, advanced analytics and expert services. This approach includes centralized enterprise-wide analytics, powered by artificial intelligence (AI) in specific use cases, across BD products and connectivity between BD Pyxis™ and BD Alaris™ technologies, in addition to connectivity into the electronic medical record (EMR). Added capabilities such as antimicrobial stewardship surveillance and analytics are the result of this truly integrated system, designed with the clinician in mind to help improve efficiencies and outcomes – with the goal of affording more time for health care workers to focus on patient care.

“One of the key weapons in the fight against the growing problem of drug resistant bacteria is effective antimicrobial stewardship in hospitals. Using available antimicrobials appropriately is the only way to maintain their effectiveness long term and avoid collateral damage, which in turn has the ability to help reduce healthcare associated infections,” said Dr. Fares Khater, system director of infectious diseases at Appalachian Regional Healthcare Corporation. “The ability to have near real-time visibility into medication stewardship alerts will enable our staff to make more informed decisions quickly that have the potential to improve patient outcomes by avoiding specific antibiotics when appropriate.”

BD’s AMR strategy addresses the need for a multifaceted approach to curbing the threat of AMR, including the immediate need for advancement in infection prevention and control practices, diagnostics and surveillance tools. BD engages in extensive cross-sector collaboration with leading health agencies, foundations and other organizations around the world to deploy training initiatives, information systems and medical technology that support programs in hospitals and laboratories, tailoring its approach to the stage of development and level of sophistication in each country’s efforts to combat AMR. These new integrated capabilities in the BD HealthSight™ platform are the latest in BD infection surveillance technology. Other BD infection surveillance offerings include data mining technology that creates an early warning system to detect infection anomalies before an outbreak occurs and tools for health care facilities to easily report infection data electronically to public health authorities for enhanced monitoring to identify local, regional and national trends.

BD invites conference attendees to visit booth #1637 to learn more about scaling medication management to the enterprise level with a comprehensive approach that links hospitals’ technologies, workflows, inventory and clinical decisions involved in medication therapies across the care continuum. For a complete list of exclusive BD in-booth speaking sessions, symposia sponsorships and other conference activities, please visit bd.com/ASHP2019 and follow BD on Twitter @BDandCo for live conference updates.

About BD
BD is one of the largest global medical technology companies in the world and is advancing the world of health by improving medical discovery, diagnostics and the delivery of care. The company supports the heroes on the frontlines of health care by developing innovative technology, services and solutions that help advance both clinical therapy for patients and clinical process for health care providers. BD and its 65,000 employees have a passion and commitment to help enhance the safety and efficiency of clinicians’ care delivery process, enable laboratory scientists to accurately detect disease and advance researchers’ capabilities to develop the next generation of diagnostics and therapeutics.

Political Campaigns Use Artificial Intelligence to Detect Emotion in Videos with CampaignTester™

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Leading technology companies will be meeting this week at the Campaigns and Elections Innovation summit on Wednesday and Thursday showcasing the latest trends and techniques for optimizing the effectiveness of political campaigns. CampaignTester™, will be demonstrating its mobile focus group platform that measures eight different emotions as well as “engagement” in each second of the videos being tested. Engagement is defined by the company as meaning that a person is actually facing the screen on their device with the volume turned up. The information is then consolidated into dashboard reports in near real-time.

“In my 30 years in market research, CampaignTester is the most exciting development I’ve seen in qualitative insights. Emotion and sentiment data are on the forefront of content and message testing,” said New York-based industry veteran, Shelli Garson. “Any company that is currently doing traditional market research to digital messaging should really take a look at CampaignTester – which is a fraction of the cost and time required to get actionable data.”

The platform uses the company’s emotiontrac™ technology which measures facial micro gestures from the participant’s mobile device to determine emotion and engagement throughout each second of the video being tested. Each person “opts-in” to participate in the test to comply with disclosure and privacy policies and can receive a gift card for participating, similar to survey research.

“CampaignTester is not just for the political and advocacy marketing initiatives,” said company COO, Bill Lickson, “We’ve had interest from movie producers, record labels, ad agencies celebrity influencers and companies from a variety of industries that want to add this unique data to their business intelligence.”

The 2nd East Tech West Forum Kicked off in Guangzhou’s Nansha

GUANGZHOU, China, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Over 300 most influential global industry leaders convened in the Nansha district of Guangzhou, China from November 18 to 20 for the second East Tech West, a global forum organized by CNBC. Its focus is on the innovation and development of such industries of 5G and smart city, AI, transportation, fintech and healthcare. Executives and sci-tech innovators from IBM, NASDAQ, Huawei, JD.com, Ant Financial and other companies shared their insights at more than 35 fireside chats, panel discussions and workshops. Not only has the sharing allowed all to imagine the upcoming global technologies and the future, but also put Nansha in the world spotlight as it pools innovation resources for quality development and innovative ecosystem.

The 2019 Global Innovation Index published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) this July ranked China 14th after four years of climbing. In WIPO’s analysis, global innovation is in the ascendant and major economies like China moving up the list has delivered a new global innovation landscape despite a world economic slowdown.

As China’s forerunner of opening up and innovation, Guangzhou is creating a sound environment for innovation to facilitate the free flow of innovation factors and gather high-end technological elements from across the world. Beyond that, it has emerged as one of the leading global sources of innovation by leveraging the opportunities brought by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

At the event’s sci-tech section, the LED chips, smart robots, carved products and others promoted by such Nansha-based high-tech firms as APT Electronics, Dorabot and Bona Robot took attendees’ fancy.

“We have seen innovation resources cluster at a faster pace. Two major sci-tech innovation platforms-Nansha Science Town and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou)-broke ground on September 26. On top of that, more than 170 AI companies, over 140 life health firms, and NEV projects by Toyota and Evergrande have been inaugurated in Nansha, which is also home to the unicorns of CloudWalk and pony.ai,” said Cai Chaolin, secretary of CPC Nansha District Committee at the opening ceremony.

By speeding up progress for pooling innovation resources worldwide, Nansha is seeing a thriving cluster of emerging industries, incessantly unleashing innovation vigor to the world.

According to a spokesperson from the People’s Government of Nansha District, besides sci-tech innovation companies, a host of platforms ensuring quality development for enterprises have contributed to an improved climate for innovation and coordinated development of industries, academia and research institutes in Nansha. Multiple major platforms for sci-tech innovation,
including South Marine Science and Engineering Guangdong Laboratory, National-level Headquarters Base for Combustible Ice Research, IPV6 International Root Server, Guangzhou International Institute of Artificial Intelligence, and iFlytek South China Institute of Artificial Intelligence, are laying solid groundwork for the development of sci-tech innovation in Nansha.

Nansha has immense potential for growth and holds a key position in the building of the Greater Bay Area with an advantageous geographical location, said Max Raven, senior vice president of CNBC Catalyst. On the day leading up to East Tech West 2019, the home port for Nansha International Cruise started operation. It is thus fair to say Nansha is at the center of the sea-land-air transport system.

With a blend of innovation resources and prime location, the environments for doing business and promoting innovation in Nansha become better. The recent launch of an AI platform in Nansha has ensured the face-scanning service to be offered in government services, transportation, travel, consumption and education. After the pioneering reform of business registration and confirmation system, it takes just ten minutes to complete business registration, rivaling New Zealand and other countries and regions with highest efficiency in this regard.

Innovation plays the most fundamental part in the development of Nansha while driving its future growth. In a third-party assessment’s simulation ranking, Nansha will be listed top 25 globally this year in terms of business environment.

The building of the Greater Bay Area is now in its full swing. Nansha, as a state-level new area and pilot free trade area, has been on a mission to develop a demonstration zone for comprehensive cooperation among Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, which will bring about significant development opportunities.

According to CNBC International’s president KC Sullivan, this year’s event not just continued the tradition of discussing fintech, AI, 5G and smart city, but paid special attention to the development of the Greater Bay Area. He was hopeful that more and more global companies could share their development opportunities.

LOUIS, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — FinLocker, a financial data and analytics company, announced today the approval of its fourth patent, leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) and rules based algorithms.
