The next big leap in healthcare for rural India | Dr. Kanav Kahol | TEDxGateway

Swasthya Slate developed by Dr Kanav Kahol of the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is able to carrying out 33 different tests and give instant results.

Picture this – you are unwell and your doctor orders you to get a battery of tests done. You spend the next few days going to different labs and then few more days waiting for the results. Once again you are back to the doctor for a diagnosis. Now, here is a kit that lets you do around 33 different kind of tests at one go, ranging from haemoglobin test to ECG and gives you the result instantly?

Dr. Kahol completed his PhD from Arizona State University. Dr Kahol works towards technology that can enable patients to become co-designers of their health by actively being participants in designing their health programs and prevention programs. Dr Kahol was an assistant professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering in Arizona State University and an assistant professor adjunct in Mayo Clinic, USA. Broadly, his research in healthcare encompasses a wide spectrum of state of the art information technology, mobile technology and sensor technology for public health. It includes applications such as simulation and games for training and education, social networking tools, and feedback and monitoring systems that involve wearable sensors and mobile computing.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Improving Healthcare: Straight from the Heart | Sanjay Saint | TEDxUofM

Approximately 2 million Americans develop infections in hospitals every year despite fast-paced innovation in medical equipment and procedures. Despite the deadly nature of many of these infections, they can often be prevented with simple hand washing techniques. Dr. Sanjay Saint argues that the social learning that guides our behavior in institutions like grocery stores can be used to improve the quality of healthcare in our hospitals.

Sanjay Saint, MD, MPH, is the George Dock Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan and Chief of Medicine at the Ann Arbor VA Medical Center. His research is focused on preventing hospital-aquired infections, as well as implementation science and medical decision making. As a leader in the healthcare space, Dr. Saint is a Special Correspondent to the New England Journal of Medicine and a frequent contributor to other publications, including the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.

Health Predictions: the future of healthcare (ISCF – Ageing Society)

In the latest of our Predictions series, we take a look at what the future of healthcare will look like.

Could artificial intelligence and smart technology improve every stage of our lives?

We look at how the future of healthcare will affect us from birth including wearable tech and the internet of things to capturing baseline health data we can use to monitor our health as we grow older.

£300 million for landmark ageing society grand challenge

10 million Brits alive today can expect to reach 100 and funding will ensure the UK leads the world in healthy ageing.

As part of the government’s plan to build a Britain fit for the future, £300 million will go towards developing the innovations and new technologies of tomorrow.

From womb to tomb

Health scanning and data will become ever-present in our lives – even from the very start of life. Before birth, scanning will take place in the womb which will create a basic profile of a person’s health and create treatment plans from the very start. Predisposition to certain diseases or disorders will be recognised, and a way to live a healthy life based around this will be created for people to follow throughout their day-to-day lives.

During everyday life, as they grow and age, people will be constantly monitored and have data fed back to update their health records – driven through innovation in wearable technology and the Internet of Things. This data will be used to create a baseline set of data for when we are healthy, and then alert us should an illness or poor health be spotted due to a change in this information – allowing illness to be caught early; and perhaps even reminding us should we be living an unhealthy lifestyle.

But what will happen when we do eventually fall ill?

A trip to the doctors

Going to the doctors will be radically different. Medical scanning will be efficient and simple – with a full body scan akin to walking through an x-ray machine at the airport, or even a breath sample will be enough to detect illnesses. These advancements and automation will free up a doctor’s time to focus on where it is needed most.

Using the data collected from the patient’s everyday life, and then comparing it to more in-depth scans from check-ups will allow much-improved analysis and monitoring, and will be especially effective against chronic diseases like diabetes and tracking the progression of dementia.

If a health issue is spotted it is at this point a doctor could be alerted, or the patient could be prescribed a bespoke medicine based on their healthcare records and developed by AI, which is then 3D printed at the patient’s bedside as a single pill.

Even a trip to the hospital will be more automated. Robots will be used to carry out more physical tasks such as moving patients around or creating sterile environments, discreet wireless sensors will allow instant notifications of change, while algorithms and AI will be used to diagnose and treat patients.

These innovations will allow doctors and nurses to be freed up to do the more human parts of the work and spend more time with patients one-on-one.

What Americans dont understand about Public Healthcare

Public Healthcare, or as Americans call it: Social Healthcare, is an issue of contention almost every single U.S election. And the 2020 presidential elections won’t be any different. Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Elisabeth Warren, and Bill de Blasio already voiced their support during Democratic primaries. However, what every election cycle in the United States also has in common is that the candidates who support public healthcare never actually present any plans for how the system would work or what it would even look like. Additionally, many American advocates of public healthcare don’t seem to know much about the social sacrifices, reforms and additional health measures that come with public healthcare to ensure a healthy society. In this video that will be discussed and several American misconceptions about public healthcare will be talked about.
