    Vesta: A digital health analytics platform for a smart home in a box

    No full text
    © 2020 This paper presents Vesta, a digital health platform composed of a smart home in a box for data collection and a machine learning based analytic system for deriving health indicators using activity recognition, sleep analysis and indoor localization. This system has been deployed in the homes of 40 patients undergoing a heart valve intervention in the United Kingdom (UK) as part of the EurValve project, measuring patients health and well-being before and after their operation. In this work a cohort of 20 patients are analyzed, and 2 patients are analyzed in detail as example case studies. A quantitative evaluation of the platform is provided using patient collected data, as well as a comparison using standardized Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) which are commonly used in hospitals, and a custom survey. It is shown how the ubiquitous in-home Vesta platform can increase clinical confidence in self-reported patient feedback. Demonstrating its suitability for digital health studies, Vesta provides deeper insight into the health, well-being and recovery of patients within their home

    Fishes of The Cypress Creek System, Tennessee River Drainage: Historical Records, Recent Fish Fauna, and Index of Biotic Integrity Assessment - Geological Survey of Alabama Bulletin 190

    Cypress Creek is a northern tributary to the Tennessee River (Pickwick Lake) in Lauderdale County, Alabama, and Wayne County, Tennessee, with a drainage area of 214 square miles. Although repeatedly sampled for fishes such as Slackwater Darter, Etheostoma boschungi, Tuscumbia Darter, E. tuscumbia, and Flame Chub, Hemitremia flammea, over the past several decades, the last comprehensive fish survey of the watershed was conducted in 1971, and changes in the fish fauna and community composition may have occurred. Historical data (1845‐ 2019) containing 5,105 records was compiled for 109 species reported at least once from the Cypress Creek system. Samples from 2009‐19 (primarily in 2015‐16) at 83 localities were collected by seining, backpack electrofishing, and a limited number of boat electrofishing efforts. Community composition was analyzed for 39 collections using the Index of Biotic Integrity. One hundred thirty‐one collections yielded 2,453 records containing a total of 80 species, with a mean of 21 species per collection, including several species of interest. Multiple species (e.g., Pirate Perch, Aphredoderus sayanus) that were rare in historical collections were proportionally documented more frequently in this study when sampling appropriate habitats in select tributaries. The current fish fauna of Cypress Creek includes 99 species, which represents high species diversity for this relatively moderate‐sized stream, when compared to rivers and streams frequently referenced for their fish diversity. Index of Biotic Integrity scores varied among tributaries, suggesting differing anthropogenic impacts on fish community composition across the watershed. Future development within the watershed should be closely monitored to ensure the aquatic biodiversity of this stream is not compromised

    Is it Something We Didn\u27t Ask? Examining Our Faculty\u27s Motivation to Use Our University\u27s IR

    No full text
    How can we encourage faculty to deposit their scholarly works in our university’s institutional repository (IR)? What motivates faculty to self-archive, and participate in the IR? The who self-archives question can be easily answered, but the why questions involve more rigor to find answers and create solutions. While there has been considerable attention dedicated to the development, implementation, and the initial population of content into the IR at Montclair State, there has been no data collection used to evaluate the IR, in regards to faculty awareness, and motivation to participate, and continued participation, that can help to strategically influence outreach efforts. We will share the preliminary results of our research study which utilizes the value of collecting qualitative data to explore the wants and needs of the users, and intended users, of Montclair State University’s institutional repository

    Think Outside the Download: Growing IR Collections to Make Data-Driven Decisions

    Get PDF
    When institutional repository managers think about the impact of the IR, they typically consider download counts or other usage metrics. But what if our collections could be a pivotal data source for making important decisions across the university? Using the lens of faculty publications, we will discuss several strategies for uploading new submissions to ensure a thorough picture of the data. We will then consider examples for using this data, such as highlighting research for faculty promotion and tenure decisions and identifying where faculty publish to assist libraries in negotiating OA-friendly agreements with publishers

    Planning Next Season’s Harvest: A Deep-Dive on the DC Harvesting Tool with Scopus Integration & Beyond

    No full text
    Five months after the launch of the Digital Commons Harvesting Tool with Scopus integration, we’re seeing more and more examples of institutions finding ways to enhance their faculty publication workflows. Some are dipping their toe in and testing waters. Others have fully adopted the tool and are regularly harvesting Scopus metadata records. But what challenges remain? And how do we overcome them? This talk will review some of the latest in-depth functionality in the tool, and lead an open discussion on what enhancements in the future would most positively impact users’ support for their faculty and institutions. It will also contextualize the Harvesting Tool by placing it within the larger Digital Commons roadmap, whose other highlights and themes will be shared
