The data explosion in healthcare through digital health networks goes hand in hand with concerns of data privacy and security. The recent WannaCry ransomware attack impaired the smooth operation of several NHS hospitals in the UK; and led to burning questions about the state of IT security in healthcare on the individual or systemic level, […]

It was high time that the stethoscope, the symbol of the medical profession, was upgraded to represent the state of play in healthcare in the 21st century. Here, I reviewed the Eko Core digital stethoscope allowing the medical community to listen to lung and heart sounds crystal-clearly and digitize the results within seconds.

Although the medical tricorder will remain a dream to be chased by digital health innovators for the years to come, I collected the portable, digital health diagnostic devices currently on the market in case anyone is thinking about purchasing an effective gadget making the patient the point of care.

What Could CRISPR Do Tomorrow?

CRISPR is the newest, most efficient and most accurate method to edit a cell’s genome. We have to understand it and prepare for the medical revolution it brings upon us, so here I summarized everything to know about this genome editing method from DNA-scissors to currently unimaginable possibilities, such as having an army of gene-edited soldiers. Here, let me show you the myriad of wonderful opportunities as well as the frightening ethical challenges what the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing method could bring into healthcare in the future.

Did You Have A Genetic Test? Analyze Your Raw Data At Home!

Personalized medicine allows you not only to take genetic tests at home, but also to analyze your DNA in your living room. You do not need to install a mini-lab in your kitchen, just visit the websites and use the tools which I describe below.

Clinical Trials Future of Pharma

For How Long Will We Test Drugs On Patients?

Clinical trials today are long and expensive. Pharma companies spend billions of dollars and still, at the end of the day a drug might not become approved. On the one hand, this creates a huge risk for them to invest into innovation, on the other hand patients sometimes have to wait for unnecessarily long until a new drug reaches the market.

Futura Genetics Analyzed my Genome – Genetic Test Review

Through the rise of personalized medicine, carrying out genome tests at home became feasible. With a PhD in genomics, I’m always curious and excited to try out novelties in my field. This time, Futura Genetics offered me a genetic test, and I was happy to give it a try.
