Argentina

Annotation Argentina has reformed its public finance system and reversed years of economic decline and deficit spending. This study recommends policy options to speed the already impressive progress. These options would expand the ambitious reform program already under way. This study shows how to sustain balanced public finances over the medium term. It describes ways to sustain price stability and economic growth while providing a cushion against unexpected downturns. Also examined are ways to improve social services while reducing the size of government. Researchers discuss key reforms that could boost the fiscal surplus by as much as 1.4 percent of gross domestic product. They look at ways to build tax revenues, reduce provincial finances, and make social security more equitable. They review methods to cut defense spending and revive a moribund education system. Additional policy options offered are reforms for housing and welfare programs and pension fund investments. The study suggests ways to improve the legal framework for a stronger central bank. Also reviewed are ways to eliminate unnecessary administrative agencies and to privatize public enterprises. The government's new health insurance program is examined. This program offers universal coverage. It lets contributors choose providers and includes subsidies for those who can't pay. It also requires a minimum package of health care at a set price.

This thesis describes a telemedicine approach to a computer-aided healthcare system. NEMESIS is the Spanish acronym of New Electrocardiographic Medical Station with Information Systems. The application is a comprehensive tool set, structured around a main navigation bar, which leads to every sub-application. Those sub-applications are window based, user-friendly tools, comprising specific health tools for physicians, telemedicine/telematics tools and general-purpose tools. The whole application is built in a highly structured and modular way, which allows adding or excluding modules quickly. Portability is guaranteed and achieved by Java programming language, bringing independent platform software. All modules comply with international standards; namely, medical modules comply with European CEN TC 251 approved standards, since telematic modules observe the ITU standards. The present application release offers a specific medical module (for cardiology), videoconference, electronic mail, remote control, electronic healthcare patient record retrieval and knowledge database access. The prototype application is running at the Cardiology Service of the Hospital Clínico Universitario of Valencia, waiting for physicians to evaluate the usability, utility and functionality of the software. Esta tesis describe una aplicación de telemedicina desarrollada en la Universidad de Valencia. NÉMESIS es el acrónimo de Nueva Estación Médica con Servicios de Información Secundarios. La aplicación, producto de un tesis doctoral, aprovecha la reciente ubicuidad de redes telmática de fácil acceso y bajo coste para ofrecer herramientas de telemedicina. Parte de una barra de herramientas que aglutina y da acceso a los demás módulos de cardiología o telemedicina existentes. La aplicación se ha desarrollado en Java, tanto por su orientación a redes como por su portabilidad, cuidando además de respetar una estricta modularidad para garantizar la versatilidad de la aplicación. Todos los módulos cumplen los estándares existentes, tanto en informática médica (CEN TC 251) como en comunicaciones (ITU). En la presente tesis se han desarrollado los módulos de cardiografía, adquisición, videoconferencia, correo electrónico, control remoto, acceso a bases de datos hospitalarias de pacientes y acceso a bases de datos de conocimiento. Un prototipo de este programa será probado en el Servicio de Cardiología del Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valencia, para recger información de su utilidad, usabilidad y fiabilidad.

Monitoring the Performance and Operation of Cellular Radio Interfaces using Professional Measurament Tools.

Monitoring the Performance and Operation of Cellular Radio Interfaces using Professional Measurament Tools.

El presente libro ha sido diseñado para ayudar a los estudiantes del Grado en Ingeniería de Tecnologías de Telecomunicación en el empleo de las herramientas utilizadas en las prácticas de las asignaturas de comunicaciones móviles, y para mostrarles cómo analizar y entender los resultados que se obtienen con dichas herramientas. Para ello, en primer lugar el libro describe de forma didáctica cómo utilizar las herramientas de medida profesionales empleadas en las prácticas de comunicaciones móviles en la UMH. Dichas herramientas se emplean habitualmente por ingenieros de planificación radio para monitorizar en tiempo real el rendimiento de las redes de comunicaciones móviles mediante drive tests. Dicha descripción incluye una presentación detallada de la herramienta de testeo profesional Nemo Handy desarrollada por Anite. Dicha herramienta se incluye en un terminal celular en modo ingeniería, empleado para monitorizar en tiempo real el funcionamiento y rendimiento de las redes celulares, y tomar medidas para su posterior análisis. Dicho análisis se realiza empleando la herramienta Nemo Outdoor, descrita con detalle también en el libro, incluyendo ejemplos sobre cómo realizar los procesados más relevantes. Finalmente, el libro incluye y analiza una serie de medidas se han realizado en un sistema celular UMTS/HSDPA en activo en Elche. En particular, se explica el proceso seguido para realizar dichas medidas empleando Nemo Handy, y se analizan mediante Nemo Outdoor las principales funcionalidades de un sistema celular, como el establecimiento y finalización de llamadas, la selección y re-selección de celdas, el traspaso y el análisis de las descargas de datos y parámetros radio. This book has been designed to guide the students of the Bachelor's in Telecommunications Technology Engineering towards a clear understanding of how to use the laboratory tools, and show them how to analyze and understand the collected measurements. In this context, the book first introduces and describes how to use the professional measurement tools employed in the laboratory activities of the mobile communications course at UMH. These tools are commonly used by cellular radio engineers to monitor in real-time the performance of cellular networks through drive tests. The book first presents the Nemo Handy professional measurement testing tool developed by Anite. This tool is included in an engineering-mode cellular handset used to monitor in real-time the operation of cellular networks, and collect measurements for post-processing. Such processing is done using the Nemo Outdoor tool that is also introduced in the book, including examples of how to perform the most relevant processing actions. Finally, this book shows how to conduct some measurement and analysis processes using Nemo Handy and Nemo Outdoor. The measurements have been conducted over live UMTS and HSDPA networks in the city of Elche, and cover the analysis of important cellular functionalities like establishment and release of a call, cell selection and reselection, handovers, and analysis of data downloads and cellular parameters. This chapter shows with practical examples how to conduct the measurements using Nemo Handy, and how to interpret with Nemo Outdoor the exchanged cellular signaling messages in order to monitor the operation of cellular networks.
