LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 07/24/14 -- New Eyes, a comprehensive eye care practice with locations across southern Nevada, has recently seen a year of change: a move to a new facility; consolidation with another established practice, Eye Care Associates of Nevada; and the addition of new staff members. Dr. Helga Pizio, an ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon as well as the founder of New Eyes, says these changes, along with the practice's commitment to enhancing the experience of each patient, are very important for one's overall treatment experience. "With the addition of three doctors, we have achieved excellent clinical coverage for the Las Vegas Valley. With more physicians at New Eyes, we are able to provide patients with greater access to eye care specialists."
But that's not all, says Dr. Pizio. In a recent blog entry on the practice's website titled: "Enhancing the Patient Experience," Dr. Pizio explains that excellent care by an eye doctor is only one part of what she feels patients need when visiting an ophthalmologist:
"If you are a 'top-notch' doctor, then your patients expect that your practice will provide them with a 'top-notch' experience. This includes not only great medical and surgical care but also that you have a well-trained, efficient, and courteous staff, your phones are answered by a caring, live person, magazines in the waiting room are current, you play trendy selected music in the waiting room, and that you have large screen TVs with interesting content."
Not to mention excellent materials available for patient education, says Dr. Pizio. In a second post on New Eyes' website discussing enhancements to patient care, she writes that providing accessible, high-quality videos for patients to view on the site and on iPads at the practice serves as a critical component to a patient's experience. "[The videos] make the best visual tools to aid our patients in understanding their condition, the surgical details, and what advanced vision correction options are available to them."
For a practice that offers an extensive range of eye care services, from LASIK laser vision correction and cataract surgery to corneal transplantation and dry eye treatment, Dr. Pizio says having a modern, comfortable facility staffed by a communicative team of doctors and assistants, in addition to comprehensive educational options for patients, are all part of giving patients the best possible treatment. "We strive to elevate our patients' experience to reflect the quality of our patient care."

Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud platforms and applications and that nearly half of large enterprises will have cloud deployments by the end of 2017. The benefits of the cloud may be clear for applications that can tolerate brief periods of downtime, but for critical applications like SQL Server, Oracle and SAP, companies need a strategy for HA and DR protection. While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
