Connected Health And The Digital Age Of Medicine Case Study
Speaker note: Through the use of the body-worn sensor, a health status of the patient such as disease symptoms, biomedical tests, and feelings of the patient will be shared, stored and analysed among healthcare workers and the patient, which will help …show more content…
“NantHealth is a transformational healthcare company converging bio-molecular medicine and bioinformatics with technology services to empower physicians, patients, payers, pharma and researchers to transcend the traditional barriers of today’s healthcare system”(Nanthealth, 2016). It helps to provide targeted and personalized care through the object and voice recognized supercomputing and highly network system (Nanthealth, 2013).
Technological Innovations To Connect Patients, Providers, And Insurers Across The Care Continuum
1. Cancer Genom sequencing
Speaker note: “Cancer genome sequencing, which runs by a super computer to find every single genetic mutation that could cause cancer. A biopsy can be done by taking the tissues of all kinds of cancer patients and only takes a day to provide all the health information including personalized information of each patient on cancer browser genome. The device also shows how a patient respond to the treatment, which helps a provider to choose a best possible treatment option”(Hudson, 2016) video.
2.Deviceconx: It is a medical device that ensures critical information, which will be available for the patient and the provider at home or the point of need (Monegain, …show more content…
2. Less invasive and more accurate tools for diagnostic and treatment
3. 3-D printing
5. Electronic health records
6. Computerized physician and provider order
Genetics and Genomics: it helps to identify the type of gene mutation to treat cancer, cystic fibrosis, sickle- cell anemia, and others. It also helps to diagnose the disease or abnormality in a pre- natal stage. Genetic and Genomics will improve the diagnostic and interventional medicine (Huston, 2013).
Less invasive and more accurate tools for diagnosis and treatment: Many diseases and diagnostic tests will be conducted without invasive procedures such as, there will be a new blood test to diagnose heart disease, which will eliminate angiogram (Huston, 2013).
3-D printing: Prosthetics will be developed similar to the natural body parts for instance, in order to replace the human ear, genes will be taken to match the tissues and organs and 3-D will print the similar skin, tissue and organ (Huston, 2013). Robotics: Robots will be used to provide direct care to the patients. Also, they will be used to deliver the medical devices, medications and others, which will allow humans to provide patient
