While Health Reform Debate Rages, Oracle Caters to Insurance Companies

first_imgsteven walling Tags:#enterprise#Products 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts center_img Timing is everything. That’s a saying that enterprise software giant Oracle has apparently not taken to heart, because today, in the middle of hysteria by both sides of the reform debate, the company has unveiled Oracle Revenue Management and Billing for Health Insurance. A B2B vendor might not care to tiptoe around health IT issues, since they don’t really depend on consumer opinion to gain customers. But Oracle is treading on dangerous ground by catering to the financial needs of insurers just when they’re everyone’s favorite target for vitriol. The new software is just one in a complete line of healthcare IT applications that Oracle offers. While most of these are basically the same as other Oracle products, today’s release is a rules-based application tailored to managing insurance billing and revenues.In a recorded webcast that accompanied the PR for the new product, Oracle representatives specifically mentioned increased spending on Medicaid and Medicare as something that the company wanted to profit from. If Oracle is intent on capitalizing on the attention that health IT is getting from the reform movement, this is probably the wrong way to go about it from a public relations perspective. Despite poor timing, Oracle’s offering might actually make things better for the customers of insurance carriers if it delivers on its promise of streamlining billing and payment operations. The less organizational overhead spent on activities than can be automated through the Web the better.However, Oracle is one of several big corporations on the member roster of the Heatlhcare Information Technology Standards group (PDF list), an industry-led organization that some prominent analysts have accused of stifling health IT reform. Whether there’s cause to be skeptical of Oracle or not, releasing a specialized software package for healthcare payers today is walking a fine line.

Best friend’s wedding? No sweat at all. A make-or-break business meeting? Panic attack! While you may consider yourself a makeup maven at other times, getting it right at the workplace can be quite tricky and leave even the best of us flustered at times. Over-the-top make-up is an absolute no-no but downplaying it too much can also earn you the ‘dated’ tag. Balance, therefore, is key. So why is the art of make-up such a big deal at the workplace?In today’s highly competitive environment, the professional world requires what might be called a ‘total package’. So while crunching numbers in your head at the speed of lightning and never failing to submit a report on time will certainly win you brownie points with your boss, completing these tasks while sporting garish make-up certainly detracts marks from what would have been an otherwise perfect impression. Remember, if you’re preparing for a job interview or an important business meeting first impressions do make a world of a difference. For high flying executives, regular media appearances have become quite commonplace too. Unlike filmstars it is quite odd for business women to be surrounded by an entourage of make-up artists and stylists. Follow these simple do’s and dont’s to ensure you look as good as your work does.DO’SUse a sheer foundation to even-out your complexionWear some colour on your cheeks to avoid looking washed-out.Choose high-quality, long-lasting products like waterproof mascarato ensure you look fresh all day. You don’t want to be rushing to the washroom to touch up your make-up all day.Well-manicured nails with subtle polish make a good impression.Shade your eyes and blend with subtle browns or greys. Finish off the look with a soft peach or pink lip colour.advertisementDONT’SDon’t wear bold or bright red lipstick. Unless you work in a creative profession such as fashion, advertising or the media.Ditch over-the-top eye makeup or smokey eyes. You do not want to be sporting that raccoon look at the end of a stressful day. A thin line of taupe eyeshadow and a black liner is ideal for everyday wear.Avoid glitters at all times. If you really must, save it for the annual office party.Never ever use fake eyelashes at the office and go easy on the eyebrow pencil. Brows that are too dark and heavy just look weird. Keep a safe distance from frosted and glitter lipstick.last_img read more

Falcons William Moore Arrested on Battery Charge

admin no comments

William Moore, the Atlanta Falcons’ starting safety, was arrested and booked into Fulton County Jail on a battery charge on Thursday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.WSB-TV reported that Moore was involved in a dispute with a woman and allegedly grabbed her shoulder.“We are aware of the situation involving William Moore and are in the process of gathering more information,” a Falcons spokesperson said in a statement released to the AJC. “Because this is now a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time.”Moore was due in court Friday morning.The Falcons signed Moore to a five-year, $30 million contract extension just before the 2009 second-round pick out of Missouri was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Moore’s deal included $14 million in guaranteed money, including an $8.25 million signing bonus and a fully guaranteed base salary of $2.25 million for the 2013 season. Moore’s $3.5 million base salary for 2014 is guaranteed for injury only.While it is still very early in the legal process, a suspension under the league’s personal conduct policy could void those guaranteed salaries.After missing all but two games of his rookie season due to a hamstring injury, Moore has started 38 of 40 games over the last three seasons, totaling 201 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 11 interceptions and 25 passes defensed. Moore had four interceptions in 12 games and was added to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster as a Super Bowl replacement. read more

Oculus Quest and Rift S available for preorder both at 399 shipping

John Kim/CNET Oculus ignited people’s interest in virtual reality when it announced a Kickstarter for the Rift headset in 2012, promising high quality VR for $300.  Fast-forward seven years, after a more than $2 billion acquisition by Facebook and the 2016 release of the Rift, and Oculus is preparing to launch its next-generation VR headsets.  They’re called the Oculus Quest and the Rift S, and both will cost $399 (£399 in the UK; Australian pricing is TBA but the UK price converts to about AU$740). But they’re rather different headsets.  The Oculus Quest is self-contained, working without a computer to power it or any extra sensors set up around a room to track where you’re moving. The Rift S, meanwhile, offers better visuals while still connected by wire to a computer, but it also ditches sensors around a room. “Now, getting into VR is as easy as gaming on a console,” Facebook said in a statement. The new headsets come as Valve, whose Steam store and Half-Life first-person shooter series have made it a household name among gamers, prepares to release its first headset, the $499 Valve Index. And that’s not including other competitors, such as Sony’s $299 PlayStation VR, HTC’s Vive and headsets from Lenovo, HP and Samsung that’re powered by Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality technology. 58-oculus-questEnlarge ImageThe Quest is a wireless self-contained headset, offering a middle ground between the low-power Oculus Go and high-power Rift S. Sarah Tew/CNET The Quest is a new device Whereas the Rift and Rift S rely on an outside computer connected by a wire to power the virtual world you see, and the $199 Oculus Go is designed to be a wire-free self-contained entry-level VR device, the Oculus Quest is meant to be somewhere in the middle.  At its heart, the Quest is meant to offer higher-end games designed to work with the Oculus hand controllers, like the music rhythm game Beat Saber and the boxing game Creed: Rise to Glory. But it’s also self-contained, running a powerful, yet small, computer in the headset. To pull off that trick, developers say, the Oculus Quest isn’t as capable as its beefier cousin, the Rift S. Its screen doesn’t show as many details, it’s not able to pack as many characters on the screen at a time, and apps made for it can’t assume they’ll always be connected to the internet. (Sometimes people might take this on a train or on vacation). The Quest still uses the same controllers as the Rift S Though the Quest and Rift S won’t always be able to play the same games, the Quest will have the same controllers. That’s a step up from the entry-level Oculus Go, which had a simpler, wandlike controller that wasn’t capable of doing as much as the more full-fledged hand controllers Oculus offers. Oculus Quest is fully mobile VR They’re both $399, go on preorder Tuesday and ship May 21 If you’re already convinced, you can preorder the devices on the Oculus website, at Amazon and elsewhere.

A recent survey from industry tracker IDC, which was sponsored by Sony, found that headset sales in the US, UK, Germany, France and Japan rose 60% in 2018 to 3.9 million headsets, up from 2.4 million in 2017. But that’s still small compared with the hundreds of millions of video game consoles Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have sold since 2013. Here’s everything to know about the Quest and Rift S so far. The Rift S is a refinement  Oculus says the Rift S will offer more-detailed and sharper-looking visuals than the original Oculus Rift, which shipped in 2016. But the real change is to the cameras mounted on its sides. There are two in the front, one on each side, and one on the top, all designed to track the outside world using a technology called “Oculus Insight,” so that the headset knows when you’re leaning one direction or another or suddenly duck to avoid something. Those cameras work in concert with the company’s hand controllers too. See it CNET Review Oculus Quest The standalone VR headset earns our Editors’ Choice.
