How can hospitals increase capacity without expanding building space, improve physician productivity without adding to work hours, and minimize patient wait-times while increasing the number of incoming patients? A growing number of medical centers claim to have found these solutions through a new, innovative form of digital management: hospital command centers.
Is science reality starting to resemble science fiction? Recently, researchers from multiple universities wrote a paper in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience that purportedly showed how AI can predict people’s personalities by studying their eye movements.
Recently emerging innovative technology could dramatically change how millions of people monitor their blood sugar levels: an approach that utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) and radar technology, including high-frequency radio waves to monitor blood sugar levels without the need for finger pricking.
Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have come up with a new technique based on artificial intelligence and machine learning that allows clinicians to acquire higher quality images without having to collect additional data. In a paper appearing in the journal Nature, this technique is referred to as AUTOMAP (Automated Transform By Manifold Approximation).

Ochsner Health System in New Orleans has teamed up with Epic and Microsoft to determine if technology can be used to find out which patients will code before they suffer a cardiac or respiratory arrest.
According to a study, “take-home” robots could be instrumental in helping patients recover from illness in their home environment.
After being discharged from the hospital, a robot could help patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) manage their condition.
The Journal of Medical Internet Research reported that socially assistive robots can help patients stick to their medication and exercises. The test was conducted with patients suffering from COPD.
There is a growing new field of medical health technology called digital phenotyping. It puts forth the theory that a person’s use of all digital media—social media posts, phone use, etc.–could reveal the person’s physical and mental health status.
The 2018 Security Metrics Guide to HIPPA Compliance is a great source of security tips and regulatory insights on how to protect patient data from attack. It provides benchmark data on what other institutions are doing.
