Intel® Technology Powers Healthcare Innovation
Women's Medical University Institute of Advanced Biomedical Engineering & Science uses Intel® RealSense™ technology at their brain surgery operating room. The gesture-based computer operation allows the surgeon to control images and other information without leaving the operating room, providing more accurate and safer surgery.
Inpatient systems efficiency, collaborative clinical workflows, individually customized care, and clinician productivity must all be advanced to improve the quality of care and minimize the amount of time, effort, and money patients need to spend seeking effective treatment.
We must aim to reduce the time patients spend waiting for diagnosis, testing, completion of documentation, clinicians on rounds, and for clinicians to communicate with one another. Collaborative clinical workflows and individually customized treatments that take advantage of all patient data, including genomics, can enable higher quality care, delivered more efficiently, for more effective healing.
Patient Engagement: Intel and Dell Collaborate with MEDITECH for Healthcare Cloud
Solutions from Meditech and Intel® processor-based Dell devices help improve patient engagement and outcomes while reducing costs. Accessing and making sense of personal health-related data allows people to obtain a "big-picture" understanding of what they can do to improve their own health, and accelerate the pace of medical research that could benefit us all.
Mobile healthcare teams use Intel-powered devices throughout their shift, from the dispatch center to the durable laptops and tablets, consolidating patient data. This includes scanning paperwork and patient information from the hospital or EKG strips. The ability to transfer patient information wirelessly to the hospital before the patient arrives can save precious minutes in life-or-death situations.
Personalized Medicine Will Revolutionize Healthcare, If We Don’t Get in Its Way
What is personalized medicine? It’s tailoring the medical decisions, practices, interventions, and treatments to the individual patient based on their predicted response or risk of disease. Said another way, personalized medicine is taking a patient’s health data and using it to treat them like an individual with unique health needs.
As we move into the world of personalized medicine, read about the four things every organization should work on to make sure they’re prepared.
