Mobile technologies like smartphone apps offer the promise of connecting millions of patients to immediate care, revolutionizing how we collect real time symptom data, and in many cases offering on the go and live health monitoring and support. But mobile technologies also offer serious security vulnerabilities, leaving sensitive patient medical information potentially in the public sphere.  There are several barriers including a lack of standards in how we collect passive data from smartphones (eg GPS, accelerometer, etc), how the data is transmitted and stored, undeveloped methods for processing this vast amount of data, and currently little discussion on the ethics of collecting such data from populations that may be cognitively impaired. Solving these challenges will be critical in brining the potential of mobile health to mental health.

As wireless becomes more and more prominent, VoIP services are being implemented in the home, and the push for the Internet of Things becomes the new norm, remember, don’t let your guard down.  There are more reasons to secure your networks than ever before.  With some simple tools that are freely available for download, hackers can gain access to your network allowing them to control your network devices and possibly steal valuable personal information.  This demo will remind us what type of information can be compromised when someone has access to it.

As in other disciplines, recent dramatic increase in biomedical data collection capability has resulted in a need to improve the capability to analyze large datasets not just for research but for current clinical use.

A few biotechnology applications that are driving this explosion of biomedical ‘big data’ include: clinical informatics, healthcare & public health management, bioresearch, wearable/implantable medical & monitoring devices, medical image processing and telehealth. In the case of clinical informatics one can broadly claim that to deliver what is popularly known as Precision Medicine (also referred to Personalized Medicine) the challenge will be not just to apply ever advancing ‘big data’ analytics but to also enable the exploration of an unique dataset in a manner that is accessible to both clinicians AND individual consumers. Perhaps, the Precision Medicine topic that has recently garnered the most headlines in the popular press is how understanding an individual’s genome will enable targeted therapeutics.

This technical meeting will outline how computational analytics are being used to enable the ‘actionable’ understanding of an individual’s genome for the purpose of delivering more precise treatment. While the examples of precise targeted treatments are few today, we will explore why there is strong likelihood that this capability will improve greatly within the next decade.Clinical genomics is a topic that will continue to advance through teamwork among a wide range of researchers as well as clinical, engineering and computer science practitioners; hence it seems like this is great topic for a joint meeting of chapters of the Computer Society and the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. The two main goals of the lecture will to be to present an overview of the biological challeng and then introduce the basic technical methods used to analyze a human genome. An attempt will be made to illustrate at least one current clinical application.

Pizza and soft drinks will be served. Please register so we can estimate the amount of food to order.

October 1st, the NH section of IEEE will have a section mixer for members and non-members alike!  Make some new connections, make some new friends, see some new technologies.  

Some members of Manchester's Maker movement will be there showing off their projects.  If you have a project that you would like to show at the mixer, please contact or Ed Nelson (Enelson@ieee.org).

This event will be held at The Yard restaurant in Manchester NH, and goes from 5pm to 9pm.  The cost is $5.  Appetizers will be served, and a cash bar will be open (the first drink is us!).
