Note From the President


BioUtah-Sponsored SB 263 Overwhelmingly Passes Utah Senate, House; STEM and USTAR Funding Renewed
 
In a significant victory for Utah's life science community, Senate Bill 263, entitled the "Small Business Innovation Research  (SBIR)" bill, successfully passed both bodies of the Utah legislature. The bill, which restructures the Technology Commercialization & Innovation Program (TCIP) and prioritizes matching funds for Utah SBIR recipients, passed the Senate 26-2, with one abstention. The vote in the House was 67 yes votes, 4 no votes and 4 abstentions. The bill was delivered to Governor Gary Herbert for signature on March 20, 2014.
 
This bill makes programmatic changes in the TCIP (Technology Commercialization & Innovation Program, administered by the Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED), the proper home for this entrepreneurial economic development. The $1.6 million currently in the program will now be open to small businesses outside the university system, and encourages prioritization of SBIR award recipients for TCIP awards. The bill also lays a strong foundation for prioritization funding for the TCIP program, including appropriations for SBIR matching, in future sessions.
 
The passage of SB 263 is a tremendous victory for Utah's life science community and for promising entrepreneurial companies in IT, aerospace and energy. Many, many thanks to our dedicated, highly respected sponsors, Appropriations Vice Chair Jerry Stevenson in the Senate and Majority Whip Greg Hughes in the House; to our extraordinary lobbying team of Rob Jolley, Chris Bleak and Jodi Hart; to Brandi Simpson of Navigen, Clark Turner of Turner Innovations, Kevin Jessing and Vince Mikolay of the Governor's Office of Economic Development for their great support and testimony; and to all others who made this victory possible.
 
In the end, all three of BioUtah's top-priority bills--the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) bill, STEM Action Center growth and USTAR renewed funding--successfully passed both the Senate and the House. This was an exceptional result for our young association, and more importantly for the life science community we serve. It would have not have happened without phenomenal support from truly great folks in industry, education and government.
 
More information, including the full text of SB 263, is available at www.le.utah.gov/~2014/bills/static/SB0263.html.
 
We invite you to play an active role in helping drive the legislative, regulatory and overall business agenda for Utah's life science sector through active participation in BioUtah.
 
All the best,
Kimball

How to Confuse and Confound Your Trainees in 10 Easy Steps!
by Jill Drummond, Director Training & Education, Blood Systems

 

 

On-the-job training is usually conducted one-on-one or in small groups so it can be challenging to confuse trainees; but fear not — when employees start a new job, they are usually a little nervous or apprehensive.  They want to make a good impression and they want to be successful in learning their new tasks.  This is when they are most vulnerable and they are easy pickings for total confusion.  Follow these simple steps and you will have your new hires running for the hills and totally flabbergasted and ineffective in their jobs. 

  1. Don’t bother to prepare.   You are an expert so why should you waste time reviewing the training materials and preparing the training area?  If you don’t have enough equipment, the trainees can always double up and reduce their practice time which will be an added bonus towards confounding them.
  2. Ignore the trainees or speak down to them.   Your time is valuable.  Don’t waste time building rapport or putting the trainees at ease by opening with a friendly greeting.    Adults need a supportive training environment to learn best, so being rude and speaking down to them will go a long way in confusing them. 
  3. Don’t let on why people are in your class.  If people understand why the training is important to the job, they might pay more attention.  So don’t connect the dots and explain how what you are teaching them is important or fits into the big picture.  This will only add context and make the training process much smoother. Let them wonder in a fog as to exactly why they are there. 
  4. Demonstrate the process when facing them.   Here is an easy one to try.  Teaching in reverse is a very simple technique for confusing your trainees.  Have your trainees try to follow the demonstration as a mirror image rather than demonstrating the tasks side-by-side.  It will be much more difficult for them to process the steps in reverse. 
  5. Don’t have trainees share personal experiences.  Adults learn effectively from each other and like to share their experiences.  Therefore, maintain your position as the “expert” and don’t encourage trainees to discuss or share during the training.  Besides, one of the best ways for people to retain information is to teach someone else, so be sure not to let that happen in your group. 
  6. Use lots of jargon.  Using lots of jargon in your explanations will make you look smart and will totally make your trainee’s head spin.  They will be so worried about trying to figure out what you just said that they will miss half of what you are instructing. Don’t use clear language and simple terms since those will be easily understood and the trainee may catch on quickly. 
  7. Read to your trainees.  Whether it’s an SOP or bullets directly from a slide, nothing will make your trainees go to sleep faster than you reading what they can read themselves.  This is all about you, why should they be involved in their own learning?  If you allow them time to read themselves, they may start to discuss with each other when they are finished.  This will only enhance their understanding so keep control of your group and read everything to them. 
  8. Let them know how dumb they are.  When you give feedback, don’t be specific, objective, or base your feedback on behavior.  This will only make the trainees more comfortable and cocky.  Positive feedback should be avoided at all costs; but if you absolutely must give positive feedback, make sure it is non-descript.  Tell them they are good, but let them figure why. Let them wonder about which part they did well. 
  9. Steam roll through your session.  Adults learn best when they know the agenda and have periodic breaks.  So cover as many topics as you can in your session. Taking fewer breaks and covering more topics in your session will leave your trainees dumbfounded.   This will also leave little time for practice, reinforcement, and transfer of knowledge. 
  10. Start the training late and end late.  This won’t so much confuse them as it will surely tick them off.  And when trainees are upset or untrusting, it is more difficult for them to stay focused and absorb important information.  Therefore, as a byproduct, they will be confused and angry, which is just a bonus. 

If you master these few tips, you will routinely confuse and confound your trainees.  They will leave your training scratching their heads and probably not come back.  If, on the other hand, you want to be an effective trainer and ensure that your trainees absorb, retain, and can apply their knowledge and skills on the job, then do the opposite!

BioFire Defense NGDS Contract Award
BioFire Defense of Salt Lake City, Utah announced today that it was awarded the Next Generation Diagnostic System (NGDS) Technology Development contract by the US Department of Defense.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 20, 2014

BioFire Defense, LLC of Salt Lake City, UT announced today that it was awarded the Next Generation Diagnostic System (NGDS) Technology Development contract by the US Department of Defense (DoD) after 12 months of competitive prototyping. The 8 year $240M biodefense program is managed by the Joint Program Executive Office’s Medical Countermeasure Systems (JPEO MCS) office. The NGDS program will expand BioFire’s FilmArray diagnostic menu by developing Biothreat test capabilities for use across all four branches of the DoD.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to deliver the most cutting edge diagnostic system to our Warfighter,” said Kirk Ririe, CEO of BioFire Defense. “The motivated team at JPEO has pushed an aggressive schedule and a cost effective approach that will be met by exploiting our FilmArray’s commercial diagnostic capabilities, to provide for our Nation’s biodefense and improve DoD health care.”


Deployment of an mHealth Patient Monitoring Solution for Diabetes— Improved Glucose Monitoring Leads to Reduction in Medical Expenditure

 

Abstract:

 Although there is ample evidence that improved glucose control prevents long-term complications of diabetes, few reports have addressed the effect of improved control on short-term healthcare costs. Methods: A mobile health (mHealth)-enabled glucose meter combined with a disease management call center was deployed in 143 employees as part of an employer-sponsored diabetes disease management intervention. The program cost was approximately $50 per member per month over and above the cost of standard care. Results: Overall, on an intention-to-treat basis, this program was associated with an annual reduction of $1,595 (95% confidence interval [CI] –$2,827 to +$181) per person in incurred medical claims. A subanalysis documented that those who actively participated in the program (50 %) incurred a year-over-year claims cost decrease of $3,384 (95 % CI $643 to $5,149) compared with an increase of $282 among those who did not participate. Conclusions: These findings suggest that even partial improvement of diabetes testing adherence within an employed population may result in substantial attenuation of employee medical expense. The reduction in healthcare costs, even when considering those who did not comply, outweighed the program costs by several-fold.

Actavis-Forest Bid Shines Light on Valeant Next: Real M&A

Actavis Plc’s purchase of Forest Laboratories Inc. (FRX) accelerates a pharmaceutical merger wave that stands to engulf even more drugmakers.

The $21 billion transaction, which includes Forest’s net cash, is fueling the busiest 12-month period for acquisitions in the industry since 2009, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Generic-drug companies such as Actavis and Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (VRX) are boosting growth by crossing over into specialty medicines including skin-care treatments, birth control and remedies for digestive diseases.

The most active dealmaker among its North American peers, Valeant may make a competing bid for Forest, according to Piper Jaffray Cos., which also sees Mylan Inc. (MYL) as a target or acquirer after so far having been largely left out of the consolidation. Valeant, the $49 billion company that’s aiming to more than triple its market value by the end of 2016, could merge eventually with the new Actavis-Forest, Stifel Financial Corp. said. Or Valeant may opt to buy Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (TEVA), which would be a better fit, said Aegis Capital Corp.

Utah doctor helps craft attack plan for hepatitis C
Health reform » Utah liver specialist on national panel guiding doctors in using revolutionary treatments.
By Kirsten Stewart | The Salt Lake Tribune

A revolution in treatment for the 3 million people in the U.S. chronically infected with liver-damaging hepatitis C has driven doctors to take unusual steps to speed patient access to emerging and expensive therapies.

Hepatitis C is the leading cause of liver cancer and liver transplants. The current treatment — a mix of injectable medicines and a pill — can take months and cause debilitating, flulike symptoms.


Two Utah cities among best for business

SALT LAKE CITY — A recent report from the Milken Institute ranked the Provo-Orem area as No. 2 and Salt Lake City as No. 5 on its list of the Top 25 Best-Performing Large Cities for business.

Rankings for the study were based on data from both long- and short-term growth in jobs, wages, salaries and technology output. Provo-Orem moved up five spots from last year’s ranking, due in part to the growing technology sector and high job growth rate, according to the report.

Salt Lake City ranked No. 5 on the Milken list due to a diverse, consistently growing economy with a positive outlook for the future, the report stated. During 2012, Utah's capital city added 2,600 professional, scientific and technical services jobs — a gain of more than 7 percent from the previous year.

Company that makes medical equipment for kids hit hard by Obamacare
 By Patrick Howley 

The world’s only company specializing in making orthopedic equipment for children is slashing its product development budget and freezing hiring as a result of Obamacare’s medical device tax.

“We are a company that is not yet profitable. We’ve only been in the market for 5 years. This is a very burdensome tax because it is based on sales, not profits, and the only way we can pay a tax like this is to cut expenses,” OrthoPediatrics CEO Mark Throdahl told The Daily Caller.


Obamacare medical device tax led to loss of 33,000 jobs, report says

33,000 laid off or not hired

 

By Tom Howell Jr.

 

-

The Washington Times

A new survey says Obamacare’s tax on medical device manufacturers forced companies to lay off or avoid hiring 33,000 workers last year — adding another arrow to the GOP’s quiver as Republicans aim to portray the health care law as a job-killing program.

The report from the Advanced Medical Technology Association, or AdvaMed, underscored the latest line of attack against President Obama’s signature law, as Republicans also trumpet the potential harm of the law’s insurance rules on employers and a new report suggests government-subsidized health plans will prompt more than 2 million people to work less or leave the workforce.


New medical device group seeks to cut red tape
Will target devices with the potential of aiding organs
By Nick Clunn - Tech Page One February 19 2014


Manufacturers who design and test new medical devices have long complained of the complicated approval process, a time-chewing and costly procedure that delays access to cutting-edge medical technology.

But a consortium of public and private medical experts is working to simplify the process, with the goal of enabling manufacturers to get products to physicians and patients much more quickly.

The Medical Device Innovation Consortium, a nonprofit public-private partnership with the federal Drug and Food Administration and LifeScience Alley, a biomedical science trade association, will fund projects to help simplify the approval process. It will receive input from industry, government and other nonprofit organizations.

Exel White Paper Examines How U.S. Healthcare Impacts Medical Device Supply Chain

WESTERVILLE, OhioFeb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A new white paper commissioned by Exel, the North American leader in contract logistics, and its sister company DHL Supply Chain, the world's leading logistics company, examines how changes to the U.S. healthcare sector are impacting supply chain models. The report, "Transformation of the U.S. Medical Device Supply Chain: An Evolution in America's Healthcare," explains what changes medical device supply chains must undergo in order to survive in today's new healthcare environment.
 
America's healthcare environment is changing rapidly due to a number of factors. With the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and a 2.3 percent federal excise tax on medical devices, medical device companies are seeking ways to cut costs to remain profitable. Shifted buyer behavior and dispersed supply chain delivery models call for improved efficiencies while maintaining high product quality. As a result of these changes, companies must reevaluate their current supply chain models to meet the demands of the industry's new environment.

No end in sight to federal pressure on medical device companies
By 

You can excuse Tom Sommer, head of the state group that advocates for medical device companies, for sounding more than a little frustrated with the federal government of late.

He's worried about the twin pressures under the Affordable Care Act — including the Medical Device Tax and the new reporting burdens under the Sunshine Act — and the sequester, which has prevented U.S. regulators from spending money that could help speed up the approval process for new devices. Sommer said that times have been tough for the members of MassMEDIC.


 

New Emergo Group Medical Device Industry Study Shows General Worldwide Optimism

The Emergo Group recently published itsMedical Device Industry Outlook for 2014 — a comprehensive study that polls corporate leaders and influencers in the medical device industry worldwide to gain an overarching view of how the previous year concluded for the industry and what the general consensus is for the future of the industry in the new year. After compiling results, Emergo has found that there is general agreement among the industry that the outlook is positive on a global scale, with certain regions expressing more optimism for 2014 than others.

Emergo’s new report is based on the feedback taken from nearly 4,000 medical device industry professionals from around the world, which covered all of the top level issues that are important to the medical device industry, including business and regulatory challenges, sales performance, market growth potential, and effects of the U.S. Medical Device Excise Tax, a major fixture of Obamacare and  point of political contention in 2013. The results indicate the U.S. and Europe remain cautiously optimistic about the industry for 2014, with developing markets in the Asia-Pacific rim and South America showing the highest optimism and growth potential.

Dear 900+ STEM Education Advocates:
 
This may be the shortest message from me you’ve ever gotten. We just found out that the Legislature has produced a preliminary, but likely  funding list that appropriates $20 million to the STEM Action Center for the coming year; $15 million one-time and $5 million ongoing.
 
This funding is a direct result of your involvement in Utah’s STEM efforts. You are the heroes making a difference every day. What’s more, in addition to the Math Digital Learning project which will now be K-12, we are embarking on a revitalization of our Jr. High School and High School CTE offerings and are providing Elementary and Secondary STEM endorsements for teachers. This is the first time in a long time the legislature has funded CTE and Professional Development.
 
The scope is 3 to 4 times greater than last year and the funding is doubled so we have a lot of work to do, but with your help and a team of highly qualified and motivated people, we can do it just like this past year.
 
In addition, the private sector has now pledged almost $2.4 million to our STEM Media Campaign to encourage students, parents and teachers to embrace STEM education. The partnership between public education, higher education, GOED and the private sector is already paying dividends.
 
Sincerely,
 
Stan Lockhart

March 3, 2014 

Dear Utah Legislature:

We need your help! There is a serious talent shortage with thousands of high-paying STEM jobs waiting to be filled right here in Utah with over 600,000 K-12 students who could expeditiously be 
prepared to fill these jobs, if you embrace the most innovative Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education initiative in Utah history. Using widely-used best practices that have been successful around the world, Utah will be poised to compete for tomorrow’s jobs in a fast-changing digital world. 

The business community respectfully requests $23.5 million to align Utah’s educational outcomes with workforce needs. This request is endorsed by a growing group of Utah business associations and businesses. 

As business leaders, we know that elevated performance in STEM is critical to our children’s future success in their professional careers. Frankly, a strong STEM background is increasingly becoming a requirement for many jobs. 

 Accompanying this email is a link to the December 2011 National Governor’s Association STEM recommendations: http://www.nga.org/files/live/sites/NGA/files/pdf/1112STEMGUIDE.PDF. We are following several of the best practices recommended in this study. 

 Last year, most of the focus was on Digital Learning in Math. We have had incredible results as about 100 teachers in 40 schools piloted a variety of products with 5,772 students. Outcomes were 7% to 18% higher for students using Digital Learning than without. 

This year, we extend Math Digital Learning to K-6, focus on STEM endorsements providing high quality training for teachers, principals and district administration that creates a more active, engaged classroom environment and invest in revamping CTE in Jr. High School and High School to help students discover aptitude in STEM through project based curriculum and to connect students to cool STEM curriculum, vocational certificates and STEM jobs. 

Please help us by endorsing HB 150.
