Embracing big data – the future of healthcare | Willem Herter & Wouter Kroese | TEDxSaxionUniversity

Embracing big data for the future of healthcare, a radical transformation in the way patients receive treatment.
When you, as a patient, sit in front of a doctor, the doctor does not have access to the right information what treatment works for you. Digitization of the world gives us the opportunity to make health care smarter and much much better. With the use of big data Wouter and Willem support docters in choosing the right medicine for the right person. They radically transformed the way we learn what treatment will help you when you get sick.

Furthermore, Willem was a member of the voluntary board of the Dutch Cancer Society and has worked as data scientist for THNK: School for Creative Leadership.

Wouter Kroese has obtained a bachelor’s degree in Medicine in Utrecht and a master’s degree in Computational Logic at the University of Amsterdam. Wouter has worked at University Medical Center Utrecht and has working experience in management consulting.

Bridging the rural healthcare gap | Rubayat Khan | TEDxDhaka

The healthcare-delivery scene in rural developing world is unimaginable sitting in the big cities. Most of the people go to a ‘person who is not a doctor,’ when they are sick. They go to the trusted pharmacy owner around the corner, as often the nearest healthcare facility is miles away. Rubayat Khan, a Bangladeshi entrepreneur considers how technology and market mechanisms can help bridge these health care gaps tapping into unique alternatives.

Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare – It’s about Time | Casey Bennett | TEDxNashville

We need tools that can help us – both clinicians and patients – make better healthcare decisions. Yet in order to do so, those tools need to “think like we do” … and the key to natural intelligence is not simply X better than Y, but rather sequences of decisions over time. To best assist us, our clinical computing tools should approximate the same process. Such an approach ties to future developments across the broader healthcare space: cognitive computing, smart homes, cyborg clinicians, and robotics.

Casey Bennett is the Chief Scientific Officer for Faros Healthcare. He received his PhD from the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University. His work focuses on artificial intelligence in healthcare, including the areas of robotics, machine learning, clinical decision support, and personalized medicine. He was the lead designer for Centerstone’s award-winning organization-wide analytics platform (2010 TDWI Best Practices Award) and the national Knowledge Network Data Warehouse, the largest ongoing clinical mental health data repository in the country. His work has also been featured as part of IBM’s “Smarter Planet” campaign. He is currently working on projects using artificial intelligence to augment clinical decision-making in chronic illness, as well as utilizing in-home robots for therapeutic purposes with elderly patients.

The Impact of Residential Schools on Aboriginal Healthcare | Dawn Tisdale | TEDxComoxValley

What is Primary Health Care ( PHC )?

This is an animated video lecture on PRIMARY HEALTH CARE based on the PARK TEXTBOOK of COMMUNITY MEDICINE.
Hey guys…….welcome to abmbbs…..todays topic is PRIMARY HEALTH CARE…..now this is a topic which is quite complicated in the PARK TEXTBOOK but in this video we have condensed the chapter & given only the must know points.

First up…what is the definition of Primary Health Care??
Primary Health Care is the essential health care made universally accessible to individuals & acceptable to them , through their full participation & at a cost the country & community can afford.

Now, the definition in itself is pretty complicated & is bound to make you nauseous. But if you break it down to just the main points then it gets pretty simple……….Remember that Primary Health Care consists only of the bare essentials of our health care needs.It is the bare minimum which needs to be given in any medical condition………….Secondly Primary Health Care must be accessible to the people to whom it is being given.A big tertiary care hospital located 20kms away from the patients home cannot be considered as Primary Health Care…………Thirdly the Primary Health Care that is given must be acceptable to the patients.A rectal exam or a colonoscopy might not be acceptable to the majority of the population & hence should not be considered as Primary Health Care…………..The community to whom the Primary Health Care is being given must actively take part in the process.Without their full participation Primary Health Care cannot be truly given………………………..Finally,the healthcare that is given in Primary Health Care must be in accordance to the economic condition of the country.

Next we come to the Principles of Primary Health Care………..Number 1 is Equitable Distribution…….the majority of the healthcare services in India are concentrated in the towns & cities…. whereas the rural areas which need healthcare services more hardly have any…..Primary Health Care aims to redress this imbalance by focussing on the rural areas & bringing these services as close to people’s home as possible.

Number 2 is Community Participation …….As mentioned earlier, without the full participation of the local population, discharging healthcare needs is not possible…So Government of India is training village health guides & local dais from the local community itself…..these people, being localites, can overcome the cultural & communication barriers more easily.

Number 3 is Intersectoral Coordination…Government of India has realised that Primary Health Care cannot be provided by the healthcare sector alone.The different wings of the government must come together & work in an integrated fashion.

Number 4 is Appropriate Technology….
Now it goes without saying that the government spending on healthcare is extremely low & our our public healthcare institutions do not have the money for doing costly diagnostic tests & treatments…So Primary Health Care in India must rely on low budget technologies..One such technology is ORS…it is a low cost treatment for diarrhoea & dehydration..it can be stored anywhere & hardly has any side effects.

Next we come to the levels of Primary Health Care….First is the Primary level…it is the first level of contact between the healthcare setup & the patient.It includes Subcentre &….Primary Health Centre.

The secondary level or the 1st referral level is the Community health centre.
Finally comes the Tertiary level which is the 2nd referral level.It includes Medical colleges & hospitals.

So……now lets talk about Subcentre in detail….this one…It is the most peripheral & 1st contact point between the healthcare facility & the patient.It has 3 employees…..the health worker male, the health worker female & voluntary worker.Also the ministry of health & family welfare provides 100% funding for subcentres.

Guys….thank you for watching this video…Please do not forget to like , share & subscribe if you like our work….the abmbbs community is growing at a phenominal rate & we are truly grateful to you. We believe that medical education should be fun & free for everyone…….Bubyeeee……& happy learning..

The Keys to Private HEALTHCARE in SINGAPORE – VisualPolitik EN

Developed countries as well as many emerging countries, as in China’s case, are beginning to see the effects that demographic aging and many public services’ unsustainability can cause with increasing concern.

Along with pensions, health is another of the fields that generate the most uncertainties and fears.

An increasingly aging population and the emergence of new and expensive medical technologies have raised some very important questions:

Will we be able to pay for a quality health care system or will we be condemned to a precarious health situation that affects our life prospects? Is there a successful model that can lead the way? Are there alternatives?

Well, in this video we’ll look at the Singaporean system that we may more or less like, but which we should definitely know about and take into account throughout this debate.

We couldn’t have done this video without the invaluable help provided by Juan Ramon Rallo, Economist and Director of the Juan de Mariana Institute of Spain.

What if all US health care costs were transparent? | Jeanne Pinder

In the US, the very same blood test can cost $19 at one clinic and $522 at another clinic just blocks away — and nobody knows the difference until they get a bill weeks later. Journalist Jeanne Pinder says it doesn’t have to be this way. She’s built a platform that crowdsources the true costs of medical procedures and makes the data public, revealing the secrets of health care pricing. Learn how knowing what stuff costs in advance could make us healthier, save us money — and help fix a broken system.
