Assess the technology described in Suntec Singapore in the light of the latest technological developments for convention centres.
Suntec Singapore convention centre is a state of the art convention centre, that prides itself in providing modern facilities and technology to its guests and clients. The world has become a global community and large multi-national conference centres have to cater to all nationalities. Having this in focus, Suntec Singapore has implemented Digital Congress Network in their conference halls, where a team of interpreters sits in an adjacent room or sound-proof booth, listen to what the presenter is saying, through headphones, and translate everything into fourteen other languages. Their voice is then picked up by a microphone that transmits the sound signals to Infra-Red translation receivers, via infrared panels placed around the conference room. They use invisible light waves to distribute the signal throughout the hall. As the convention centre has several conference halls, using infra-red receivers rather than FM receivers ensures that the sound signals do not leak into adjoining halls as infra-red signals will only work if the receiver is pointed at the panel. Since there conference hall doesn’t have any obstacles or columns, there is no recognizable drawback of using infra-red receivers. For a conference centre, it is important to have the right seating system. Suntec, therefore, has employed portable seating system, which is easy to set up and retrieve. Not much is described about the ergonomics of the seating system, but in light of the recent developments, it should be easily adjustable and comfortable, so that each person can personalize it to their own comfort. Good comfortable seating for meeting and conferences ensures more participation and less bickering from the side of the delegates. Not much else is mentioned about the…...

...doctors who work at the hospitals. In choosing which systems to use, healthcare committees require feedback from all staff in what’s needed in the facilities to better care for patients. According to the Handbook of Informatics, the purpose for needs assessment is to see where the organization is presently at and what the organization needs to do for them to grow. Before an organization can setup an EHR they have to make evaluations of strengths and weaknesses within the organization. They evaluate the needs of the patients, how easy or difficult a patient can access their information, or what the organization can do to make it more convenient for the patients, in regards to treatments or facility visits. Needs assessment is the first phase of developing a more efficient way of making the organization stronger. It starts with the development of the steering committee, needs assessment are then developed, they identify systems requirements, and then the systems are weighed out to see which ones are in need and demand. “In the process of conducting a needs assessment, the nurse planner collects and analyzes data to determine where learner are now in relation to the desired outcome, where they need to be, and what educational approaches would be effective in bridging that gap”(Dickerson, 2013, p.104). When a needs assessment is determined it means being able to look into all areas of operation in the organization to analyze deficiencies, and how these gaps can be......
