Does Digital Health Technology Know Women?
The majority of period tracker apps fail women, fitness trackers, and wearables fail pregnant women terribly. They were most probably designed and developed by men, and most likely not consulted by future users. We looked around on the women’s health and “femtech” market and found that digital health technology has yet to live up to female expectations. So far, the area is under-researched, underfunded and not understood.
China Is Building The Ultimate Technological Health Paradise. Or Is It?
How could a country keep around 1.4 billion people healthy when the system struggles with corruption, lack of resources and an aging population? China, the emerging giant with a strong central leadership fostering technology and innovation, places its bets on artificial intelligence, telemedicine, cloud-based hospitals, and WeChat. While that could sound like an ultimate technological paradise, the question is, what are they going to do with the vast amount of data or to what interests are they going to leverage their state of the art A.I. systems? Generally, how will we speak about digital health in China: a healthcare dystopia or a system in the service of the greater good?
Where Is Digital Health Heading In Denmark?
After reading the Danish digital health strategy, one of the most forward-looking examples of a government-supported objective to adjust the medical arena to the 21st century, we looked around what real-life projects aim to transform patients’ and doctors’ lives for the better in the Scandinavian country. Our findings are thrilling: the newly established Danish National Genome Center strives to have at least 60,000 whole-genome sequenced in the next 5 years, while the Copenhagen Healthtech Cluster wants to set up a network of data registers updated so fast that it might enable helping doctors real-time – perhaps even in the OR.
Top Smart Algorithms In Healthcare
As artificial intelligence tools have been invading more or less every area of healthcare, we made a list to keep track of the top smart algorithms aiming for better diagnostics, more sophisticated patient care or further sighted predictions of diseases.
The Age of A.I. Will Value Compassionate Care More Than Ever
While modern medicine created the professional, efficient, metric-driven medic alienated from the patients, the need for compassionate care is more urgent than ever. However, that’s not only up to the physician but also the organization, because individual attempts might result in burnout symptoms. Adoption of A.I. could change the situation for the better in the future, as it would create space for doctors and nurses to spend more quality time with patients. The question is, are doctors ready for it?
Could A.I. Turn The Tables On The Physician Burnout Epidemic?
There’s an urgent need to lower the staggering levels of physician burnout around the globe as it results in reduced quality of life for the medical community, decreased levels of patient care – and a worsening human resources crisis in the long run. While technology, especially EHRs, are often considered as an essential factor contributing to physician burnout, we expect artificial intelligence to significantly reduce the administrative burden an improve medical professionals’ work experience in the future.
