Healthcare is moving towards a new paradigm. Hospitals are being encouraged to reduce the need for prolonged hospitalisation. For general practices and surgeries, the focus is on improving efficiency and reducing missed appointments – did not attends (DNAs). Securing a reduction in real estate costs and developing a more sustainable system, which overall results in an improved quality of life for everyone, are key goals. Technology is being used in ever increasing ways across many disciplines, such as diagnosis, care, assistance, test results, rehabilitation, and for patient management and information systems.

Firstly, lets establish what the GDPR is, and why it’s important to Aculab and its customers in the EU region, and also for our non-EU customers who use Aculab Cloud for their customers who reside in the EU.
We’ve been busy in the background recently at Aculab with a major website refresh. Aculab has evolved over decades (40 years this year!) from a vendor supplying hardware to a much more software-centric product company.

Way back in 2007, while presenting a seminar in Prague, someone asked me for my prediction on when SS7 would no longer be in use. My answer was suitably vague, but something on the lines of, “at least 10 to 15 years.” Ten years on, I wasn’t wrong. Still, I may not be right. SS7 is showing its age, but it’s not about to draw its pension just yet.
You might think that fax would be as extinct as the Martinique Parrot. That parrot vanished in the 17th Century. Fax was invented two hundred years later, by the Scottish clockmaker, Alexander Bain. It took a while though, until the late 20th Century, for facsimile machines to become popular. However, if the lack of commentary by the majority of today’s technology observers is anything to go by, you’d be forgiven for thinking it too had died out. The truth is that it remains extant, and it shows little sign of going the way of the Martinique.
