Organizations are increasingly turning to outsourcing for software development, in part, to control cost and lower the likelihood of project failure. However, application outsourcing is not without risk. Milestones coupled with gateway reviews are a common mechanism for controlling these risks. Yet, the benefit of milestones must be assessed in light of(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to compare the safety, diagnostic efficacy, and efficiency of multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) with standard diagnostic evaluation of low-risk acute chest pain patients.

a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t IT internal controls are an important component of an organization's arsenal of internal controls. Upon conceptualizing failures of operational IT systems, or what we call IT operational risk events, as signals of IT internal control weaknesses, we theorize about these events' impact on internal control objectives in(More)
Past research concerning information systems (IS) risk has mainly focused on development risk. However, the impact of any risk event that occurs once the system is operational can be far more extensive. Such events are due to what has been termed operational risk. Our research is concerned with operational risk that involves an IS – or IS-related(More)

BACKGROUND Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an effective option for treatment-resistant depression but requires prolonged repeated daily treatments for 4 to 6 weeks. Pilot studies have showed the possibility of accelerating rTMS safely and efficaciously but thus far only investigated high-frequency left-sided rTMS. We sought to(More)
The Multispecialty Occupational Health Group, as part of their work, have considered likely characteristics of the neurointerventional surgery operating room of tomorrow. Such rooms will be distinguished by certain architectural features and markedly increased information technology features. The novel architectural features will include system proximities,(More)
