Now this is a really interesting and novel concept up North. Looking for ways to combine several data sources in the Health/Wellbeing domain. Will have to read more about this to put it in perspective on our own national situation.

Data gedreven gezondheidsorganisaties gebruiken Big Data analyse met grote voordelen.

Inleiding

De globale gezondheid industrie staat onder aanzienlijk druk om kosten te reduceren en meer efficiënt om te gaan met resources terwijl ook de patiëntenzorg nog verbeterd moet worden. Daarnaast spelen groei van het aantal chronisch zieken, vergrijzing, veranderende klant verwachtingen over hoe men zorg wil inkopen en ontvangen en toenemend toegang tot sociale media en mobiele technieken die de manier waarop zorg wordt verkregen en geleverd wordt transformeert.

Betaal modellen en zorg systemen in veel landen evolueren van een fee-for-service toepassing naar een resultaat gebaseerde of verantwoordelijke zorg toepassing die leunt op toegang tot meer accurate data om resultaten te documenteren en te monitoren.

Om te bloeien, of zelfs te overleven, in deze tijden van massale veranderingen, moeten zorg instanties data-gedreven worden. Zij moeten data als een strategische aanwinst gaan behandelen en processen en systemen instellen die ze in staat stellen de juiste data te benaderen en te analyseren om beslissing processen te informeren en actie gerichte resultaten te sturen.

Historisch gezien hebben zorg instellingen geopereerd gebaseerd op onduidelijke of incomplete kosten en zorg metingen, waarbij ze niet het uitgebreide beeld van klinische of operationele processen hebben, nodig voor het identificeren van de gebieden ter verbetering. De zorg industrie is pas recent begonnen met het kijken naar data en analyse op de manier die gebruikelijk is in andere industrieen die vertrouwen op digitale informatie om services te verbeteren en kosten te reduceren.

IT does drive and enable business. It’s time for IT Leadership to drive that point home. Innovation and IT-generated efficiencies likely motivated most of your staff to enter IT in the first place — for the idea that there is a better, faster, more efficient way of doing things, and that IT can make that happen. Yet somewhere along the way, we lost track of the connection and reduced their influence.

New Moby MED tablet looks to challenge iPad in healthcare

Some of the most common criticisms of Apple’s new iPad are that it lacks a camera, doesn’t support Flash technology and that the memory is not expandable. A new product from Santa Clara, Calif.-based Marvell could offer an alternative for the healthcare market.

Called Moby MED, the planned tablet computer line will feature a camera that can capture 1080p high-definition video, supports Flash, has a built-in microphone and can accommodate external memory cards. It also supports multitasking in side-by-side windows, 3D graphics and can serve as a mobile wireless hot spot for as many as eight devices.

“Marvell’s Moby MED tablet platform is designed to allow physicians to consult with patients remotely in real-time, allow consumers to manage their own health histories in a highly secure, encrypted environment, make it possible to send and read high-resolution diagnostic imagery and give consumers access to online medical information in a light-weight, long-running device,” Marvell explains in a press release. Company co-founder Weili Dai goes so far as to say, “I believe the Moby MED solution could ignite a telehealth revolution in America.”

Stepping back from the corporate hyperbole, MedGadget calls the Moby MED “mildly reminiscent of the Apple iPad.” What’s unclear is how it might differ from Intel’s Mobile Clinical Assistant platform.
