Can social tools create social silos?

File:Victory Silos.JPGBy embedding social tools into common enterprise applications (such as CMS and ERP), you bring the social enterprise to workers where they work. However, since not everyone in a multi-disciplinary team uses the same applications to get their work done, tools can contribute to the creation of social silos rather than fostering collaboration. Most social enterprise tools have APIs or other building blocks to create a social layer that binds applications and company together into an agile and collaborative enterprise. Via CMS Wire.

 Ultrasound tool, dubbed the ‘new stethoscope,’ to monitor critically ill patients
Vanderbilt cardiothoracic anesthesiologists and surgeons are  pioneering the use of a tool that many in the cardiac field are calling  the “new stethoscope” when it comes to monitoring critically ill  patients.
Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a diagnostic procedure that  involves feeding an ultrasound probe through a patient’s mouth and into  their esophagus to evaluate heart function. Because the esophagus is  close to the heart, TEE can generate high-resolution images as the organ  pumps. TEE is invaluable in locating cardiac blood clots, masses and  tumors and can detect the severity of valve problems, congenital heart  diseases and aortic tears.
Vanderbilt’s cardiothoracic anesthesiologists have more than 15 years of experience using TEE for patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Now, smaller, disposable TEE probes are  being used to monitor the hearts of critically ill patients in intensive  care units for as long as three days.
