TIS Weekly (#76): eHealth — Digital Applications In Healthcare

[November 20th, 2016]

As an avid practitioner of rugby, chances are that once in a while you end up in the emergency room. Last week, it was my turn. Nothing serious, just a few stitches. But the full waiting room got me thinking, how many of these people could be helped with eCare? It would be cool if eHealth solutions could prevent full waiting rooms and traffic to the hospitals. A consult via Skype, telemonitoring of heart patients or in my case a stitching-robot controlled by a specialist? And check out this nifty Ketchum mHealth Mintor infographic.

The IBM Watson Health Cloud

The Health Cloud is a centralized cognitive system that is able to analyze a vast amount of data (including real-time patient’s data measured with wearables). It translates that information into knowledge that can help the healthcare professional in his decision-making process.
