It’s great to see that a team at AWS has made COVID-19 datasets readily available to the public (read here for detailed information). The datasets are accessible from a public S3 bucket to anyone with an AWS account. For healthcare providers and payers that want to begin or enhance their analytical efforts around the coronavirus crisis, the COVID-19 data lake can be a useful accelerator.
Robotic Process Automation – using bots instead of associates to perform processing tasks – can be an effective way to increase speed and accuracy while redeploying associates on higher-value processes and projects. RPA implementations are commonplace across financial services and healthcare, as both industries have a disparate mix of non-integrated systems and data-intensive processes. However, RPA as a solution has finite value and should be compared against more strategic solutions such as true machine learning, BPMS and microservices integration.
If you’ve been a privacy professional at any point in the last few decades, your head is spinning with the myriad of privacy laws and regulations in the U.S. and abroad. Some examples are the European Data Protection Directive of 1995, the strengthening of that directive in 2012, the French Data Privacy Law of 1978, Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) of 2001, and last but not least, the U.S. Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) of 1999.
