Dr. Raffi Hovsepian of Beverly Hills, CA is a Five-Time Patients' Choice Honoree

The Patients' Choice Award is based on patient-provided online ratings

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Only a small percentage of the nation's physicians are ever honored with a Patients' Choice Award. But Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Dr. Raffi Hovsepian belongs to an even more selective group of doctors who are being honored this year as five-time Patients' Choice honorees, marking the award's fifth anniversary.

Of the nearly 900,000 active doctors and dentists in the U.S., just five percent earned the consistently high patient ratings on Vitals, UCompareHealthCare, and other sites in 2012 needed to qualify for the Patients' Choice Award. Even fewer U.S. doctors - only one percent - earned Dr. Raffi Hovsepian's achievement: award-worthy patient praise for five consecutive years (2008 through 2012).

Each year, millions of patients rate their doctors on various critical aspects of their care, including: diagnosis accuracy, time spent with the doctor, bedside manner, and follow-up. Vitals analyzes these ratings annually, along with other quality measures, to identify Patients' Choice Award winners.

Dr. Raffi Hovsepian commented on the recognition: "I'm grateful that so many patients have gone out of their way throughout the past five years to rate my care - and rate it so highly! It's wonderful to be recognized in this particular way. Thank you."

The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway.

This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...

With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

Cryptography has become one of the most underappreciated, misunderstood components of technology. It’s too easy for salespeople to dismiss concerns with three letters that nobody wants to question. ‘Yes, of course, we use AES.’ But what exactly are you trusting to be the ultimate guardian of your data? Let’s face it – you probably don’t know. An organic, grass-fed Kobe steak is a far cry from a Big Mac, but they’re both beef, right? Not exactly. Crypto is the same way. The US government require...
The speed of product development has increased massively in the past 10 years. At the same time our formal secure development and SDL methodologies have fallen behind.

Copeland will outline the bigger picture of where Docker fits a...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use c...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.
