Teleretinal imaging enables detection of diabetic retinopathy in primary care settings

Change is required to eradicate diabetic retinopathy as a leading cause of severe vision loss and blindness. Teleretinal imaging in primary healthcare settings provides an option to improve early detection of diabetic retinopathy in patients living with diabetes.

  • With early detection, 95% of vision loss can be prevented.1
  • Achieve 90% compliance with diabetic retinal exams in one year.2
  • Improve value-based quality measures and population health management
  • Preventive intervention is key, as diabetic retinopathy is often asymptomatic; many patients are not even aware of their condition until it is advanced. Early detection in primary care settings helps to ensure vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy is identified early enough to prevent blindness.

Strings Management Manifesto

The effect of text strings on the User Experience is undeniable, but not many companies have the time or resources to spend on perfecting UI content. When the responsibility to write, edit and update text strings falls on engineers, it is tough to spend adequate time on content strategy and optimization - not to mention the drain on already time-constrained developers. The ideal solution is one that enables both engineers to manage strings more effectively and non-technical product team members to manage them without reliance on developers. Learn how to centrally manage your strings, automate UI content updates and elevate your product content with the help of AI and emotional tone analysis.

You Had me at Hello

How big of an effect do the words in your UI have on your users? Is the effect positive or negative, does it encourage engagement and continued use or cause frustration and dismissal? If the words in your product aren’t yet a priority, they should be. Words are four times more likely to convert a user to action than design elements, but the effort required to make even simple UI content changes prevents most companies from digging in and spending time on this critical driver of UX. That can change, when text strings are brought out of source code and into the light of day, or really, a single platform where non-technical team members can edit and update at will. Learn more about the impact the words in your UI have on UX and how a strings management platform can help you take product content to a new level.

Vienna Scientific Cluster’s The Immersion Supercomputer: Extreme Efficiency, Needs No Water

The Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC), created to satisfy the demand for High Performance Computing (HPC) of a consortium of five Austrian universities, released a competitive tender to build the most powerful supercomputer in Austria. However, this was not your regular competitive bid process where systems that meet the minimum requirement compete purely on the bid price. The VSC took a long-term perspective towards cost and performance, they defined very specific targets and tests that reflected the long-term cost of the system. GRC came together with ClusterVision, Intel, and Supermicro to create a custom solution that came out well on top of the competition.

This paper will explore how GRC’s technology helped dramatically reduce the upfront cost and energy consumption of the system. Thereby allowing reallocation of capital towards more computing power
