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.
“There’s no way you can move toward value-based care without incorporating patient-generated health data,” argues Danny Sands, MD, an internist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Read More
Who owns a patient’s medical records? While the answer might initially seem both simple and obvious, the truth has proven to be more complicated. While a patient is the subject of his/her medical information, it is customarily the physician who creates and stores a patient’s record.
Since first appearing in the 1960s, electronic health records (EHR) have been developed and adopted for the storage and retrieval of medical documents and clinical information.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), better knowns as drones, are being studied for various medical applications, from carrying disaster relief aid to transporting transplant organs and blood samples. When it comes to medical emergencies, each moment is critical to patient survival.
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.
Radio Frequency Identification is a technology that uses radio waves for data collection and transfer, often without human intervention—and it is being increasingly used by healthcare organizations to potentially reduce risk.
It is widely known that exercise and physical activity help combat chronic disease, and promote overall health & wellness; yet in the past decade, there has been a proliferation of specific devices and methods to promote more frequent exercise.
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.
