Genuine Relation and Politics

It is inevitable for many people to hold politicians in constant suspect. This is due to the fact that politicians are, most of the time, superficial in dealing with their constituents or with anybody in general. While this view is normal especially for non-politicians, such perception can affect the politicians themselves, especially those that are honorably serving the people. Although there are many politicians that are ego-centric, a much more number of them are there to serve their people as best as possible.Politics is the attempt to balance varied values and opinions to effect collective betterment of the state. People who are adept at playing the political game can effectively gain the support of the people and obtain positions of authority. The sad part of politics dwells on the way people in power maneuver or manipulates others to retain or reach a level of authority. However, it does not mean that you cannot establish genuine friendship if you prefer a more straight forward approach when dealing with people.Since politics is all around us, even in your office politics is an ever present reality. No matter how big or small your office is, you  are constantly in a political situation. The dynamics of politics in an office setting include the ambition of your colleagues, managers, and superiors that all bounced together, which in turn create friction. The interactions of everything in everyone in your workplace composed the totality of the political situation. You need to be aware of this interaction and how to place yourself in their midst if you want to have a better grasp of the situation. Personal relationship in a business setting has an effect when decision is made. It is common to see people going out of their way just to befriend their managers or senior partners. It is never easy to negotiate the tight rope of interpersonal dealings and at the same time trying to maintain a professional distance. The good news is however difficult it is not impossible.  Job security, which many people encounter in their career, is about performance, but also about politics. Totally focusing yourself on performance may isolate yourself from the rest, which can become unproductive if you are aiming the support of your colleagues for promotion. There must a healthy dose of engagement with your officemates as well as proper time to keep a distance from them to attain success in your career. It is always important to maintain a positive attitude towards others while at the same time keeping a professional distance. A good “politician” in the office should let his colleagues know he is fair, but can be ruthless to attain that fairness. You must be warm to everyone at all times. This does not mean that you should be superficial.  Being warm does not mean you are fooling others so you will gain their favor. However, there is nothing wrong with having the necessary awareness that political beings will always seek mutually beneficial cliques and secret pacts. It is just natural to seek assistance whenever you are in a tight situation, whether in political or business circles. Tight situations are perfect opportunities to measure true friendship. Those that stick with you even in situations that are not favorable for them can be your true friends, although in a business scenario, this rarely happens.The same is true in politics. People tend to stick to those with stable political parties or those with strong political standing so be sure to filter them out. An excellent example is election times such as the coming Australian Federal Election. Such events can test the loyalty of friends, especially if their political survival is at stake.

The Increasing Need for Healthcare IT Solutions

As medical advances in patient treatments emerge, healthcare IT needs to keep pace. IT solutions must deliver readily available and secure electronic medical data, such as Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS). Innovative treatment options, like Telemedicine, require reliable and robust IT infrastructures. And the overall IT environment must comply with stringent government regulations.Now more than ever, healthcare organizations require secure, reliable and compliant IT solutions to deliver quality patient care.A Safe and Secure Healthcare IT EnvironmentCompromised security can significantly interfere with healthcare’s ability to care for patients. Healthcare IT threats pop up everywhere. Computer viruses, hackers, human error and disgruntled employees can be a significant threat to mission critical applications and patient data. Therefore, rock-solid physical and network security becomes a top priority for all data center service providers.SAS 70 Type II audited processes ensure a provider’s operational procedures, security, and controls are working effectively to safeguard and protect your data and equipment. A safe and secure healthcare IT network contributes to quality patient care, enhanced productivity, increased mobile point of care access to information and reduced costs.In addition, healthcare IT solutions require up to five levels of physical and electronic systems working 24/7 to protect your equipment. These systems include around-the-clock monitored closed circuit televisions, onsite support and security teams, biometrics security systems and/or military-grade key cards, and various alarms and sensors tied to fire and police departments.Reliable Healthcare IT Solutions with 100% Guaranteed UptimeWith life or death decisions at stake, downtime is not an option. Your medical and healthcare IT infrastructure must guarantee 100% availability. In addition to guaranteed uptime, service level agreement should cover key elements and service metrics like power, temperature and network availability.Healthcare IT solutions should eliminate any worry about your critical healthcare IT infrastructure experiencing issues or downtime. Redundancy and reliability built into data center operations, including critical power and cooling infrastructure, can ensure fast, easy access to patient information for your healthcare personnel.Healthcare providers must maintain uptime even in the event of a disaster. Data center solutions need to provide hospitals, physicians and other healthcare providers with cost efficient disaster recovery facilities, systems and infrastructure. In addition, yourcritical data must be backed-up and safe.Finally, your healthcare business must adapt quickly to changing technologies, regulatory requirements and patient needs. Data center solutions must provide scalable infrastructures to easily address any changes in your operations.Meeting the Challenges of Regulatory ComplianceHealthcare providers are challenged with conforming to legislation and guidelines that govern the security and confidentiality of stored information. The Health Insurance and Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) mandate the safeguarding of Protected Health Information (PHI). Information breaches can result in millions of dollars of lost business, penalties and fines.IT shares the responsibility for HIPAA protection of all medical electronic records and patient information. With the recent HIPAA enforcement actions, it’s becoming increasingly important that health care IT operates in a secure, audited data center.The HIPAA Security Rule applies to all health plans, health care clearinghouses, and to any health care provider who transmits health information in electronic form. The following is a more specific list of who needs to be HIPAA compliant:
Covered health care providers (hospitals, clinics, regional health services, individual medical practitioners) that carry out transactions in electronic form
Health care clearinghouses
Health plans (including insurers, HMOs, Medicaid, Medicare prescription drug card sponsors, flexible spending accounts, public health authority, in addition to employers, schools or universities that collect, store or transmit PHI, or electronically protected health information, to enroll employees or students in health plans)
Their business associates (including private sector vendors and third-party administrators)
Many healthcare organizations struggle with IT issues related to security, reliability and compliance. They strive to ensure their IT infrastructure is able to support all of their healthcare applications. Your healthcare IT solution should combine extensive clinical best practice knowledge with innovation, business sense, technological expertise and a thorough knowledge of the healthcare industry to help optimize your patient services.
