Leveraging mobile devices to improve healthcare | Mohammed Dalwai | TEDxCapeTown

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. More people have access to mobile devices than to clean drinking water in the developing world. Mohammed asks the question: Can we leverage mobile devices to improve healthcare?

Mohammed holds an MBChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) from University of Stellenbosch. He is passionate about the impact of medicine within the rural context having completed his Community Service at Manguzi – a rural community – in the Maputaland region of the KwaZulu-Natal province. This led him to join MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres – Doctors without Borders) as an ER doctor in various countries such as Pakistan, Libya and Syria. In 2012, the Mail & Guardian recognized Mohammed as one of South Africa’s Top 200 young and most interesting people specifically for his groundbreaking work around the South African triage score and its implementation across the world. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Emergency Medicine at the University of Cape Town.

In 2012 he co founded The Open Medicine Project, a non profit aimed at capacitating healthcare workers in the developing world using mobile technology. Their EM guidance app has been downloaded in over 145 countries and is being used by over 7000 health workers worldwide.
Mohammed believes in the accumulative value of individual contributions with the overall imperative of changing the world, one step at time

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)

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.

How to Build a Healthcare Startup

I’m going to show you the entire process I used to conceive, design, and build the prototype for a healthcare startup business! This app is called “Macy”, your personal Yoga Instructor. It uses a machine learning model called PoseNet to detect human poses and overlay a skeleton stick figure on top. I retrained posenet on labeled Yoga poses images so it could detect when a person correctly performs a certain pose, then i used speech generation to have the Flutter app guide your actions from pose to pose, just as a real Yoga instructor would do. The goal is to help a user reduce stress, anxiety, and depression through a series of guide meditative poses. I’ve integrated a subscription service and some interesting design schemes, but the app isn’t finished! There is still more to do. The point is to give you the starting template to start your own profitable business. Enjoy!

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.
