Heathcare Process

In the healthcare field the computer programs and record keeping process has been very difficult to get a good system working.

The process I would like to change would be the process of getting the diagnosis and course of treatment through a website.

Right now when you go to the doctor to get checked out because of an illness, or just for your yearly check up, chances are you will receive a lot of  information on how to improve your health, and any issues you may be experiencing. Typically they  will relay this information through words and expect you to remember and know what they are talking about, and if your at all like me, you’ll be listening take everything in, then on the drive home completely space on everything they had discussed with you. You can call the office and ask for a recap of what was discussed, but that just makes it seem like you weren’t paying attention.

If I could change this I would want there to be a website so the doctor while visiting can click on certain cues that would have treatments and recommendation coded in. That way once you leave the office you can log into the website under your name or your child’s name and review the information without having to feel like you are forgetting or missing something.

I am a freshman in this college this year and my major is Industrail Design. The reason why I chose this major is that I like art since I was in primary school. Luckly, my father is also an artist who does oil painting. Fine Art is hard for me, so I decided choose design as my major. Also, I like cars, including both the design of cars and the power that a car can have. For me in the future, I really hope that I can join a famous car company like Pagani or McLaren. I know that this might be one of the most difficult thing in the world, but I would like to try. So what I need to do in my college life is to prove everything relate to design drawing technique, manipulative ability and also my thought of design. Actully I’ve been working on this since I was in high school. I think the education in college can improve me into a higher level. If I fail join those campanies in the future, I think I might will change goal to design something relate to technological stuff, like computer or some brand new stuffs in the future. Who knows that. Nevertheless, what I can do right now is still try my best to study and improve myself

Walk ins Not Welcomed

When it comes to the field of Computing Security people may tend to believe that the job revolves around sitting at a computer and monitoring traffic on a network or analyzing threats that may happen to a computer from another computer. The problem of in person “hackers” stealing information is often overlooked, this part of the Computing Security field can be very important to the safety of the company or entity that you are working for or even yourself. As a Computing Security student I have realized how easy it is to have information stolen off of a person or even probing to see what someone is doing or how skilled they are using technology just by looking at what they are doing on their phone or computer. The problem doesn’t stop at stealing information from one person by giving them a USB with malicious software or going dumpster diving to find information. Another big problem is a person who acts and looks the part of someone official but instead is trying to get access to information within a company, for instance acting the part of an IT guy to sneak into a room that may have servers or other information that could be stolen.

It is important for the safety of the company that keeping information secure from all threats including a lone shark probing for information, but often you can see how easy it is to get where you’re not allowed simply by acting the part. One instance of this could be seen as a 17 year old was able to gain VIP access at a Democratic debate and shake hands with Hillary Clinton just by acting the part as a staff member then eventually ending up taking Bill Clinton’s seat and talking to Bernie Sanders wife. If this student had been planning something malicious something very devastating could’ve happened at the event.

Company’s need to start having more strict security when it comes to services being provided from outside of the company to prevent theft of information. Company’s need to figure out a way in which to keep the security tight around these providing company’s potentially by having separate verification for these workers that are handed out to the providing company by the company in which the service is taking place such as an authenticator. This could prevent information from being stolen from the company and if more companies become knowledgeable about the security that should be taking place at the front desk a lot of money and information could be saved in the long run.

Five blogs I followed are Digital Inspiration, MaxiApple, 4CAST, Comp Talks and All PC Tips. The reason why I chose these blogs is that I am interested in computer stuffs and new technology. Most of these blogs talk about these things, such as some tips on computer using, like the blog All PC Tips, the developing of new tech, like the blog called MaxiApple, and some useful apps.

Did you plug it in?

Networking is a big part of what I do as an I.T student and its a big part of our world as a whole. See technology has gotten to the point where the software makes things easy to use without the user having any knowledge about the product works. This is a problem for me since then as soon as the product stops working people freak out and ask me. Now that may be my job but what im talking about are those people that look at the monitor and call it the computer; their questions are the worst .

The computers in the grand scheme of things isn’t very smart. People make it seem like this scary all knowing void when in reality its just a box that cant do anything unless you tell it to. When a computer “breaks” usually its the consumers fault because they didn’t “talk” to the computer in a way that it understood. The problem then falls to which layer did the communication break down.

  1. Physical
  2. Network
  3. Internet
  4. Transport
  5. Process and Application

I.T covers these 5 layers however that doesn’t mean I would be able to help you with your problem. See depending on which company you work for you maybe I.T help for the company that runs your physical and network but not the transport and/or the App. That’s where we run into a problem see when people call they want to be able to get there thing fixed and when they find out that they called the wrong place they get mad and confused. This process needs to stop and there are two ways that we could stop this.

The first idea is to be able to have open communication with all the companies running your computer service. This way after describing your problem I can easily transfer you and your problems. This would be a very efficient way to take the existing system and make it better. We could probably switch to a system where the company would monopolize all the layers however make it so that there were multiple  companies doing it so it was fine.

The second idea is people start familiarizing themselves with the computer and teach themselves the different layers and problems so they know who to call. Its exactly like how everyone should learn how the inside of a car works that way if it breaks you dont get scammed over by the mechanic. In the end I think people should learn how technology works.
