Remember when you forgot the exact details of the wellness plan your doctor made for you? Or that time when you skipped a day of your pills because you were too rushed in the morning and did’t have time? What if those had been your diabetes medication? Or the day you didn’t monitor your health led to further complications? These lapses in memory and unstructured medical plans have led to financially and physically costly results. This breakout demoed how our devices can make us adherent patients and empowered health promoters.
Erick Von Schweber is a theoretical physicist with a flair for fancy dress and using massively parallel processing for complex calculations for defense and government ops. SURVEYOR Health does even more complex stuff than that; it compares the trade offs behind thousands of drug regimens automatically. Erick demonstrated Medication Risk Maps, showing how drugs can be compared for both symptoms, costs, and side effects.
In Fall 2012 we curated expert developers to give advice, share lessons, and field questions about developing for health care – benefits, struggles and everything in between.
In 2010, with the increased complexity of moving data, technological solutions linking data in different systems while tackling the thorny issues of privacy, identity, and permissions became more important.
This panel displayed some of those leading solutions and the many unplatforms it needs to connect with, including a demonstration of the 2010 Health 2.0 Accelerator Apps Network, which combineed 7 different technologies to solve the problems of care coordination in and outside of the hospital or doctor’s office. (UnPlatforms comprise the next frontier in moving data between web/mobile/ubiquitous internet connected devices).
