  • I will use it in class teaching about knowledge management, and will add EPSS (electronic performance support systems - i.e. online help/internet search, pda search) to the far right, because unlike in a single book, you one FIND the information needed so much faster. p.s. great site.

    The Persistence of Memory.

  • Developed and a workflow/EPSS program - no 'learning' involved

  • Not to be too harsh, but to repeat the premise of the post, if we are not helping the managers on up with critical skills, we can talk all day long about performance support and just-in-time this and EPSS that, but we will still be sweeping up after the parade.

  • In the case of EPSS, instead of viewing a beautiful arc, the information obtained from these spectra tells us whether or not the esophageal cells we are viewing are dysplastic.

  • In its first pilot clinical test, conducted at the BIDMC Interventional Endoscopy Center, the EPSS instrument successfully guided the endoscopist in performing biopsies of the esophagus, detecting and mapping sites of numerous invisible dysplasia - which would have been missed by the currently used biopsy standards.

  • "We have established that this multispectral scanning technique, which we have named endoscopic polarized scanning spectroscopy [EPSS] offers great promise for the early detection of dysplasia in patients with Barrett's esophagus," explains inventor and senior author Lev Perelman, PhD, Director of the BISL at BIDMC and Associate Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School.

  • "When used to guide the endoscopist, EPSS appears to not only help to avoid unnecessary biopsies, but also to help the endoscopist to locate suspicious dysplastic areas that might otherwise be missed."
