mHealth and Where It’s Heading with Alan Portela

We also dive into the current EHR market and where it’s headed. Plus, we talk about FDA regulation and its impact on mobile health and what its impact on mobile health and EHR will be in the future.

Eric Topol and AliveCor on NBC’s Rock Center

Last night, digital health finally went mainstream. The ever popular Eric Topol was featured on NBC’s Rock Center. It’s great that more people will learn about what’s happening in Digital Healthcare. I particularly like near the end of the video Dr. Topol talks about the need for patients to be more involved in their health. Plus, it was fun to see the AliveCor device in action on network television. I’ve embedded the full video of Eric Topol on Rock Center below.

MyCrisisRecords EMS Webapp Demo Video

I recently wrote about the MyCrisisRecords system for providing critical personal health information during an emergency on our other blog, Smart Phone Health Care.  The following video is a demonstration of their EMS Webapp.  EMS is one area of healthcare that seems to be getting somewhat overlooked, but that could benefit greatly from recent improvements in technology.

In an emergency situation seconds can mean the difference between life and death, and new technological advances could save critical seconds for people who need it.

Daniel Kraft of Stanford Discusses Technology in the Future of Medicine at TEDxMasstricht

 

The future of healthcare will be heavily dependent on technology.  There are already amazing things being done on so many different levels.  This video delves into the amazing technologies that are being worked on for the future.

It discusses numerous devices that will aid in curing disease, as well as preventing it.  Some of the pictures and video shown blew me away with what they are accomplishing.  The things that Daniel Kraft discusses will give hope to those who may have lost it.

 

 

For those who do not know what TED and TEDx are here is the description that was given with the video:

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani,Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMaastricht, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMaastricht event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
