Roche Italia schiera le sue forze e il suo network a sostegno del personale sanitario e delle istituzioni

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 14 marzo 2020

Lo fa per tutti coloro che sono in prima linea nel fronteggiare l’emergenza coronavirus, dei pazienti e dei giovani delle zone più colpite. Con una lettera inviata al Ministro della Salute e a tutti i Presidenti delle Regioni, l’azienda farmaceutica leader nella diagnostica, nel diabete e nelle biotecnologie, si è messa a disposizione del sistema in affanno.
“Come azienda che opera nelle scienze della vita, raggiungiamo ogni giorno milioni di italiani con farmaci e test diagnostici e in questa situazione di emergenza sentiamo ancora più forte la responsabilità del nostro ruolo sociale. Tempi straordinari richiedono sforzi altrettanto straordinari. Se vogliamo lasciare un’impronta, come Azienda e come persone, dobbiamo pensare in maniera diversa e mettere a disposizione del Paese le nostre competenze e le nostre risorse. Grazie all’ascolto di diversi interlocutori, abbiamo individuato quattro aree di bisogno alle quali vogliamo rispondere con interventi capillari su tutto il territorio”, sottolinea il Presidente e Amministratore delegato di Roche Farma Maurizio de Cicco che si fa portavoce anche dei colleghi di Roche Diabetes Care e Roche Diagnostics. Con l’operazione “Roche si fa in 4”, l’azienda ha deciso di rispondere innanzitutto al bisogno più urgente indotto dalla pandemia: la necessità di disporre di farmaci utili a contrastare l’aggravamento delle condizioni di salute dei pazienti positivi al virus SARS-CoV-2. Il gruppo si impegna a fornire gratuitamente per il periodo dell’emergenza, tocilizumab (RoActemra) a tutte le Regioni che ne facciano richiesta, fatte salve le scorte necessarie a consentire la continuità terapeutica ai pazienti affetti da patologie per cui il prodotto è autorizzato. Il farmaco, attualmente impiegato per il trattamento dell’artrite reumatoide, non è indicato per il trattamento della polmonite da Covid-19, ma la comunità scientifica sta dimostrando interesse al suo utilizzo dopo l’inserimento nelle linee guida cinesi. Oltre alla donazione del farmaco, l’Azienda ha dato la propria disponibilità ad AIFA per avviare uno studio clinico sull’efficacia e sicurezza di tocilizumab anche in questi pazienti.
Inoltre, fino alla risoluzione dell’emergenza, l’azienda mette a disposizione gratuitamente il servizio di telemedicina integrata per le persone con diabete che consente la comunicazione della cartella clinica Smart Digital Clinic e l’app mySugr.
Il secondo bisogno individuato riguarda l’onda d’urto che ha investito il personale sanitario, la Protezione Civile e le associazioni di volontariato che non hanno risorse sufficienti per arginare, gestire e indirizzare appropriatamente le crescenti richieste della cittadinanza. Roche vanta un personale altamente specializzato, circa 1.000 persone, il 50% delle quali opera capillarmente su tutto il territorio e possiede un titolo di laurea in materie scientifiche, un capitale umano che può essere, parzialmente e su base volontaria, messo a disposizione del sistema, per offrire supporto e consulenza telefonica collaborando con chi già svolge questo difficile compito. La terza emergenza cui Roche intende offrire un supporto concreto, riguarda le strutture sanitarie che operano con mezzi economici e dotazioni insufficienti rispetto all’entità del fenomeno. Roche, in collaborazione con Cittadinanzattiva e FIMMG, si impegna a erogare 1 milione di euro per l’acquisto dei dispositivi di sicurezza individuale, mascherine e occhiali protettivi, per i medici di medicina generale che in questo momento ne sono sprovvisti. Questa operazione include anche una precedente donazione di caschi per la ventilazione dei pazienti ricoverati in terapia intensiva.
L’isolamento sociale forzato è all’origine del quarto bisogno individuato, una condizione che richiede notevole dose di pazienza e resilienza emotivo-psicologica, soprattutto da parte delle giovani generazioni. Roche, in partnership con un importante editore, dà avvio alla campagna “Stai a casa, leggi un libro”, rivolta agli under 25 dei territori in cui opera: in collaborazione con gli Assessorati alla Cultura di Milano e Monza Brianza, regalerà un libro accompagnato da materiale informativo utile ad aumentare la consapevolezza delle giovani generazioni sul tema della centralità del senso civico individuale e collettivo in una fase di emergenza sanitaria.

Roadjob è il network creato da aziende, professionisti e scuole

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 9 febbraio 2020

Lo è a partire dai territori di Como, Lecco e Brianza, per promuovere una nuova relazione dell’industria con il tessuto sociale. Obiettivo prioritario: facilitare l’ingresso dei giovani nel mondo del lavoro, grazie a un’innovativa esperienza di orientamento e formazione: RoadJob Academy. RoadJob Academy è nata nel 2019 a partire dall’iniziativa di tredici industrie, collegate nel network Roadjob. A seguito dell’esperienza pilota dello scorso anno, il network vede collegate oggi già 14 imprese, per un totale di circa 7000 addetti.
Il network, concepito come aperto e in progressivo ampliamento, si propone di individuare e attivare soluzioni innovative alla ‘fame’ di profili tecnici specializzati, facilitandone concretamente l’ingresso nel mondo del lavoro. Per la prima edizione del 2019 sono state 27 le giovani risorse assunte e già oggi impegnate nelle imprese aderenti al network, su un totale di 53 che hanno portato a termine con successo il percorso. Per raggiungere questo traguardo, ragazze e ragazzi hanno seguito un percorso mirato di orientamento, formativo e professionalizzante fra le aule, i laboratori e le aziende (almeno il 35% del percorso si svolge in azienda). Dal 2 al 31 marzo, è possibile sottoporre la propria candidatura, per la prima delle due edizioni 2020. L’invito alle giovani risorse è a candidarsi attraverso il form dedicato su https://academy.roadjob.it/
L’Academy, riservata ai giovani fra i 18 e i 29 anni, intende essere una corsia preferenziale e agevolata al lavoro, coinvolgendo i giovani nella creazione del proprio futuro, facendo la differenza nelle comunità e diventandone protagonisti consapevoli.
Il punto di partenza di RoadJob Academy sono i bisogni reali delle aziende e i profili necessari alla crescita industriale, individuati da indagini ad hoc e specifiche richieste del settore. Le indagini 2019 di RoadJob Academy hanno rilevato come figure più ricercate: manutentori meccanici, elettrici e elettromeccanici, operatori macchine utensili, disegnatori meccanici, tecnici di automazione industriale, di produzione e attrezzisti. Ma non solo: tecnici commerciali, venditori con conoscenza delle lingue e tecnici della programmazione, della produzione e della logistica.Sono queste le premesse con cui RoadJob Academy propone i propri percorsi professionalizzanti, per la formazione di tecnici specializzati con competenze specifiche di PRODUZIONE, in particolare di conduzione di impianti e macchinari industriali; di MANUTENZIONE, per garantire l’efficienza di macchinari e impianti; di FUNZIONI DI STAFF, con elementi di orientamento alle vendite, conoscenza del prodotto e sicurezza sul lavoro. Il percorso di orientamento e formazione è studiato per massimizzare esperienza e apprendimento dei partecipanti, facilitandone l’accesso a un network industriale di eccellenza, anche grazie al rapporto attivato con le giovani risorse, a cui viene attribuita un’importanza fondamentale, per il successo del percorso. Centrale e particolarmente innovativa, in questo senso, è la figura del ‘Maestro d’azienda’. Si tratta ad oggi di almeno 25 tecnici specializzati ‘senior’ che, selezionati ad hoc nelle varie imprese, vengono formati e ‘certificati’, per accogliere e seguire i giovani nel loro percorso aziendale.Le aziende partner offrono ai giovani che concludano il percorso formativo la possibilità di mettere in pratica al loro interno quanto appreso nel percorso. Se l’esperienza risulta positiva, le aziende sono aperte a una concreta possibilità di inserimento nel loro organico.

13° Conferenza Internazionale dell’European Healthcare Fraud and Corruption Network (EHFCN)

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 novembre 2019

Berlino è in corso oggi e domani la 13° Conferenza Internazionale dell’European Healthcare Fraud and Corruption Network (EHFCN) dedicata “Bytes senza frontiere: prevenzione e lotta contro la frode e la corruzione nell’era digitale”. “Attualmente ogni Paese europeo affronta le frodi e la corruzione in Sanità a livello nazionale. Al contrario, corruzione e frodi non conoscono confini nel mettere a rischio l’effettività del diritto alla Salute da parte dei cittadini di ogni nazione – ha detto Francesco Macchia, presidente dell’Istituto per la promozione dell’etica in sanità (ISPE), il soggetto che rappresenta l’Italia nel network – Questa conferenza internazionale è l’occasione per affrontare insieme le sfide sanitarie contemporanee dell’Europa. Si tratta di contribuire alla sostenibilità finanziaria dei nostri servizi sanitari e restituire ai cittadini la fiducia nell’integrità dei differenti sistemi. Se vogliamo far progredire la lotta alla corruzione in sanità, è necessaria una maggiore cooperazione all’interno dell’Unione europea e a livello internazionale, come dimostrano questi due giorni a Berlino. Significa mettere in comune dati e competenze, nonché prendersi cura della protezione delle informazioni sulla salute e della sicurezza delle tecnologie in uso. Solo se condividiamo le nostre conoscenze e scambiamo le nostre best practices, se lavoriamo in rete – in Italia così come in Europa – potremo avere successo”.“ISPE Sanità in questo momento ha una responsabilità importante all’interno di EHFCN – ricorda Laura Roberta Ferrario, Senior Researcher di ISPE Sanità – ci è stato infatti affidato il coordinamento della prima fase del progetto che vede i rappresentanti di tutti i Paesi del Network impegnati a scrivere le Linee Guida Europee per il contrasto di corruzione e frode in sanità. Ciò che ci proponiamo di realizzare non sono solamente delle linee guida generali ma dei veri e propri tool-kits pratici ed immediatamente adattabili nei diversi Paesi europei.”Alla rete antifrode e corruzione in sanità EHFCN partecipano, oltre ad Ispe, altri 150 esperti da tutta Europa. Il convegno in corso a Berlino è promosso da GKV-Spitzenverband, l’associazione nazionale tedesca dei fondi di assicurazione sanitaria.

Everstream, the business-only fiber network, has announced its expansion into the greater Milwaukee area with the construction of two fiber rings that encircle the western suburbs and touch the western part of downtown Milwaukee. The first 172 network miles will be lit in November. By the end of 2020, the network will encompass more than 560 miles, creating a dense metro network covering the greater Milwaukee area. The Milwaukee expansion deepens Everstream’s overall Midwest footprint. “Milwaukee was recently named one of the Top 50 Places to Start a Business by Inc. magazine and will soon host one of the largest gatherings held every four years — the Democratic National Convention,” said Everstream President and CEO Brett Lindsey. “These growing businesses and large-scale events need greater access to high-capacity fiber connectivity to be successful, and Everstream’s network was built from the ground up for businesses requiring reliability, speed and scale. Milwaukee companies are already excited to have access to another option for connectivity. This will provide these organizations, as they scale, with direct access to our more than 10,000 route miles of fiber and connections to dozens of data centers throughout the Midwest.”

Audio Network Partners with Musiio to Harness the Power of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 7 settembre 2019

Audio Network Limited, one of the world’s largest independent creators and publishers of original high-quality music for use in film, television, advertising and digital media, continues its focus on technology by partnering with Musiio to explore the power of AI to improve customer service and delivery.This industry first will equip the global music company with an added interface to their existing search platform, to make their catalogue of over 170,000 tracks even more discoverable, whilst keeping the human touch that Audio Network has always been known for.
Singapore-based Musiio provides a new way of “listening” to music at scale, easily searching up to one million tracks in under two seconds and supercharging a team of music researchers to increase their efficiency in responding to music briefs.“AI has been on the fringes of the music industry for the last few years, with talk of labels signing algorithms. But recently, more commercial and practical uses of this powerful computing technology have begun to surface,” explained Musiio CEO and co-founder Hazel Savage. “This deal demonstrates how AI and technology companies like ours can work with a company like Audio Network to protect everything that is great about the music industry, the personal touch, the knowledge of experts and also to create tools that let the team step up to the challenge of a huge and fast-growing industry.” Being able to search an entire catalogue of music in seconds lets a company like Audio Network keep up with demand. In addition, searching deeper within a catalogue helps maximise track usage, to bring an added layer of opportunity to the artists and composers creating the recordings.

Cyberbullismo: è Instagram il social network più colpito

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 agosto 2019

Milano. È Instagram il social network più colpito dal fenomeno del Cyberbullismo. A confermarlo i dati del Centro Studi di ReputationUP, società specializzata nella gestione della reputazione online,Il cyberbullismo è un fenomeno che negli ultimi 15 anni è drammaticamente cresciuto, come dimostrano anche i dati delle ricerche effettuate su Google per l’argomento “Cyberbullismo”.Per elaborare i dati sul Cyberbullismo, il Centro Studi di ReputationUP ha utilizzato un software proprietario di Intelligenza Artificiale che monitora la rete in base a determinati hashtag o parole chiavi.Oltre al monitoraggio, e quindi al numero di menzioni, il software di ReputationUP (reputationup.com/it) è anche in grado di calcolare il sentimento (positivo, negativo e neutrale) e le emozioni (gioia, sorpresa, tristezza, rabbia, disgusto, paura) di tutte le interazioni che avvengono intorno alla parola chiave o hashtag.Il Centro Studi ha poi confrontato i dati da loro ottenuticon quelli dell’Istat, del Miur e del Ministero della Famiglia, per ricavarne un’analisi quanto più accurata, specifica e attendibile possibile.Dal monitoraggio di ReputationUp si evince che Instagram è il social più afflitto dagli episodi di cyberbullismo, con il 42% dei casi, a seguire Facebook con il 37% dei casi, Snapchat con il 31%, Whatsapp con il 12%, Youtube con i 10% e infine Twitter con il 9% degli episodi di bullismo online.
Le conseguenze del Cyberbullismo sulle vittime sono devastanti, come evidenziato dalla approfondita ricerca di ReputationUP.Il bullismo via internet provoca enorme ansia sociale nel 41% dei casi studiati, fenomeni depressivi nel 37% dei casi, pensieri suicidi nel 26% dei casi, poi l’autolesionismo al 25%, stop dell’utilizzo dei social nel 24% degli episodi interessati. Infine il bullismo via internet provoca assenze scolastiche nel 20% delle volte, disturbi alimentari nel 14% dei casi e abuso di alcol e droghe nel 9% dei casi.

Public consultation on the European Observation and Data Network

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 maggio 2019

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) contributes to the EU’s integrated maritime policy. It was set up as a flagship project to prepare a seamless multi-resolution digital seabed map of European waters by 2020. Following the Green Paper “Marine Knowledge 2020” It had been estimated that public bodies in European countries were spending over one billion euro a year in observing the seas and oceans including work by hydrographic organisations, geological surveys, scientists and environmental agencies. However, scientists and engineers who wanted to use the data had encountered that they were difficult to find and were hampered by restrictive usage conditions and poor interoperability. Data from different sources had different baselines, different formats, different nomenclature and different standards. The Commission Communication on “Innovation in the Blue Economy” set out a roadmap for replacing the fragmented, inaccessible and inhomogeneous repositories of marine data in the EU by a sustainable process whereby data are easily accessible, interoperable and free of restrictions on use. EMODnet is now operational.

Health Net Joins Manifest MedEx Health Data Network

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 18 aprile 2019

California is taking another step toward a modern medical information infrastructure with the addition of Health Net, LLC (Health Net) to the state’s largest nonprofit health data network, Manifest MedEx (MX). Health Net has more than 3,000 employees and 85,000 providers in its network, serving more than three million members in its commercial and government-sponsored health plans. The addition of Health Net follows the recent announcements of AHMC Healthcare, Heritage California, Hill Physicians, Scripps Health, and Stanford Health Care as MX participants.Manifest MedEx is a utility-style network for health information across the state. The data securely delivered to health organizations means providers are notified when their patients are admitted or discharged from the hospital, can track lab values across various facilities, and can proactively reach out to patients requiring additional support. As the health sector transitions to value-based care, the availability of this kind of information is increasingly crucial.Health Net was recently recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, earning four out of five stars in its annual Star Ratings report. The report includes dozens of quality-of-care measures and member experience ratings for Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan enrollees. In addition, the National Committee for Quality Assurance elevated Health Net’s accreditation rating from “Accredited” to “Commendable” for two of its plans: Health Net of California, Inc.’s commercial HMO/POS health plan and Health Net Life Insurance Company of California’s commercial PPO health plan.Manifest MedEx is working quickly to help California providers access a new $50 million pool of state and federal funding to help cover the cost of participating in health information networks in the year ahead. The nonprofit network has newly rolled out an upgraded technology platform with a focus on scalable data services for the rapidly growing network of 200+ participants.

PayTipper, con PuntoPuoi network, cresce nel settore cartolibraio

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 novembre 2018

Il tema della sicurezza e dell’affidabilità delle piattaforme web per servizi di pagamento rimane cruciale per il futuro dell’economia digitale. Molti operatori del settore stanno investendo risorse nel knowledge e nelle attività di sviluppo, poiché il mercato appare sempre più sensibile alle innovazioni tecnologiche e alle loro applicazioni pratiche.Si inserisce in questo trend di mercato la campagna di affiliazione di PuntoPuoi, la rete dell’Istituto di Pagamento PayTipper, che permette agli esercizi aderenti di offrire al cliente finale alcuni servizi a valore aggiunto. Tra questi, si segnalano: il Pagamento di Bollettini postali e Freccia, avvisi di pagamento PagoPA, MAV e RAV; l’Acquisto di Ricariche delle maggiori compagnie telefoniche, di pay Tv e Tv digitali, e di gift card; il servizio di Spedizioni in Italia e in Europa, erogato tramite una piattaforma comparativa dei principali vettori; il servizio Visure per accedere ai prospetti della banca dati della Camera di Commercio.In una logica di confronto e di interazione con gli altri operatori e con gli utenti, PayTipper e PuntoPuoi hanno deciso di presentare le opportunità per gli esercenti del mondo della cartoleria e della cartolibreria a Big Buyer – la manifestazione annuale B2B di riferimento per il settore – che si terrà presso il quartiere fieristico di Bologna il 21, 22 e 23 novembre.Far parte del network PuntoPuoi significa avere accesso a una piattaforma web, sicura e semplice da usare, che consente di usufruire di alcuni servizi, a completamento dell’offerta alla clientela.

Verizon’s 5G Home network, providing 5G broadband internet service, is officially live today for consumers in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento. Installations of 5G Home began this morning for “First on 5G” customers in those cities, with a resident of Houston, Clayton Harris, becoming the first 5G customer in the world.
Built on Verizon’s proprietary, pre-standard 5G network, Verizon 5G Home is the next generation of home broadband internet service that blankets your entire house in super-fast Wi-Fi.
“The world’s first commercial 5G service is here,” said Ronan Dunne, President, Verizon Wireless. “We’ve formed incredible partnerships with many of the world’s leading technology companies, the international technical standards bodies, public officials, developers and our own customers to drive the ecosystem 5G forward, faster than most had predicted. And now, actual customers. It’s been an incredible journey . . . and we’re just at the starting line.”
“First on 5G” members – early adopters of 5G technology – get exclusive perks including 5G Home service free for the first three months (after that introductory period, current Verizon Wireless customers with a qualifying smartphone plan will pay $50 per month for the service, while non-Verizon Wireless customers will pay $70 per month), free white glove installation and equipment, and early access to new services, including 5G mobility. 5G Home customers will also get YouTube TV free for the first three months and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra device at installation.
Verizon has led the technology industry with our clear focus on bringing 5G service to consumers as quickly as possible. That’s why our 5G Home service is built on our proprietary 5G TF standard; we are able to deliver results and a 5G network faster than waiting for the formal 3GPP 5G NR standard to be incorporated into network equipment, devices, chipsets and software. As our 5G technology partners bring that hardware, software, chipsets and devices to market on the 3GPP 5G NR standard, we’ll upgrade First On 5G Members to that equipment at no charge. When new network equipment is available and introduced, we’ll expand our 5G broadband internet coverage area quickly and bring 5G to additional cities.
To find out if your home is 5G ready, visit FirstOn5G.com and sign up for all the benefits of being a “First On 5G” Member. You can also receive updates on when 5G is coming to your area and stay up to date on 5G-related news and offers, including the launch of Verizon’s 5G mobility service.

Niman Ranch to Double Farmer Network in 10 Years

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 12 settembre 2018

Niman Ranch, a leader in sustainable agriculture and humane livestock practices, today celebrated the 20th Annual Hog Farmer Appreciation Dinner in Des Moines by pledging to double their network and add more than 750 independent family farmers and ranchers in the next ten years. The company committed to supporting 1500 sustainable family farms in the next decade. The announcement will be followed by a recruitment effort to add additional farmers.“It took us 20 years to get here and now we’ll double it in ten. We have the opportunity to break away from being captive to the commodity markets,” said Jeff Tripician, general manager, Niman Ranch. “We’ve always said, ‘One farmer at a time’ and that is and was a victory for every rural community. Now we’ll do more. The market is ready and there are farmers out there that are ready for the stability that a premium meat company like Niman Ranch can provide.” As part of the announcement, Niman Ranch will begin a recruitment effort and unveiled a first of a kind Gilt and Boar Gift program for young farmers, recent college graduates and those that have served in the military. More than $300,000 in sows have already been made available to qualifying individuals who are looking to get started in farming, grow their herds, improve their genetics and ultimately make more money. The Gilt Stocking Program was part of 16 reasons to Be a Niman Ranch Farmer Partner that was unveiled before the dinner. Niman Ranch is currently paying independent family farmers approximately double the market and promising to do much more in the decade to come.“In a time of depressed hog prices, tariffs, trade wars, and a slow outlook for hog futures, we are going to grow,” said Tripician. “Our market is stronger than ever, our customers are more committed than they have ever been, and we must keep up with consumer demand.” Niman Ranch began hog production in 1995 with one farmer, Paul Willis, from Thornton, IA. Since that time the company has expanded to 629 hog farmers in 12 states. Today, the Niman Ranch farmer is significantly younger than the national average. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the average age of farmers has steadily increased to 58-years old over the last 30 years, contrary to the Niman Ranch farmer’s average age of 47.Part of the ongoing partnership between Niman Ranch and the farmer is a yearly scholarship for farm families and their children to go to college without significant debt so they can return to the farm. This year the Next Generation Scholarship Fund became a formal 501C3 and raised more than $150,000 from more than 60 donors – giving out scholarship awards to more than 32 students. Two of the students received $10,000 as part of a special Phyllis Willis Pioneer Award and the original Dave Serfling Scholarship.
