How to make the most of a medical conference: a personal reflection on EULAR 2013

How to make the most of a medical conference: a personal reflection on EULAR 2013 | Expertpatient | Scoop.it

Dr. Philip Gardiner (@PhilipGardiner) writes:

 

I have just returned from the annual European Rheumatology EULAR 2013 (#EULAR2013) meeting in Madrid. This massive conference was attended by about 14,000 delegates, with over 500 ‘posters’ per day and over 230 invited speakers. There were 10 concurrent oral sessions in the programme 4 or 5 times a day, often with very little time in between.

 

I can remember many conferences in the past where I felt that I hadn’t get much out of the conference, but I think that this one was better than most. Over the years I have learned that it takes a lot of preparation and focus to make the most of the experience. For what it’s worth, I’m going to share with you how a I went about my preparation this.

How pharma can build relationships with doctors and patients who are influential online

How pharma can build relationships with doctors and patients who are influential online | Expertpatient | Scoop.it

Alexandra Fulford (@pharmaguapa) writes: 

 

Pharma companies generally have a great idea of who their traditional KOLs are, but they have no idea about how active they are online (if at all) and they often have no real idea of who KOI (Key Online Influencers) are.  This is a big gap in a key knowledge area.

 

As more and more HCPs turn to digital the impact of KOI will become increasingly important.  Pharma companies need to start finding out which KOL are active online, and who the KOI are that they should be building relationships with them, just as they have traditionally built relationships with KOLs.

 

This is essentially just a new group of KOL and the process for KOL relationship development offline already exist – they  just need to be adapted for online.

Chris Rangel writes:

 

The best chance for a super-medical-Google-Glass-app will be as a new and novel way to enter information into an electronic medical record (EMR).

 

Data entry has always been an Achilles heel for EMRs. Keyboard entry is slower than phone dictation or even hand written notes and point and click EMRs can have significant deficiencies when it comes to the ability to enter clinical details.

 

Then there is the problem with the various devices used for data entry. Most mobile devices that can port EMRs such as laptops are cumbersome and intrusive to use in an exam room during a patient encounter. This can be mitigated – somewhat – by shrinking the EMR devices into tablets or smart phones but the trade offs are that data entry becomes more difficult without a full sized keyboard and smaller screens usually mean less data that can be displayed at any one time.

 

However, devices like the prototype Google Glass have the potential to display a full sized (virtual) screen of information for the clinician user to quickly reference while appearing not to deviate his or her attention from the patient. Data entry using Google Glass could come in the form of a point and click (or blink) structure or one combined with real time dictation at the point of care. Quite literally, the physician of the future would use eye movements to review a patient’s prior records and switch between data entry fields while dictating the relevant information into each field as the clinical encounter progresses.

 

Though this won’t happen unless and until data entry is perfected for Google Glass type devices. A physician attempting to review their patients’ recent CT scans on Google Glass can’t appear to be having a partial focal seizure or any semblance of confidence in the doctor wearing the funny glasses is going to be lost.

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically | Expertpatient | Scoop.it

Excerpt from review article by VentureBeat:
"Upload your script, choose some backgrounds, and magically created a professional-looking storyboard of your movie. Or the graphic novel version of your text-based anything.

Amazon Studios released Storyteller today to allow writers and filmmakers to quickly, easily — and cheaply — storyboard their scripts.

Roy Price, Amazon’s director of Studios said: “Storyteller provides a digital backlot, acting troupe, prop department, and assistant editor — everything you need to bring your story to life.”

You start by uploading a script to Amazon Studios — or by playing with one that’s already there. Then simply page through the script paragraph by paragraph. Storyteller will try to match up characters, props, and background with the words in each chunk of text, and it does a surprisingly good job.

But if you don’t like what Storyteller gives, you can choose from its library, or even upload your own custom background or characters. Currently, the software has a library of thousands of props, characters, and backgrounds..."

An ultrasonic body area network for implants

An ultrasonic body area network for implants | Expertpatient | Scoop.it

Researchers at the University at Buffalo aredeveloping a “body area network” using ultrasonic waves and sensors to wirelessly share information between medical devices implanted in (or worn by) people to treat diseases such as diabetes and heart failure.

 

“This is a biomedical advancement that could revolutionize the way we care for people suffering from the major diseases of our time,” said Tommaso Melodia, PhD, UB associate professor of electrical engineering.

 

The idea of creating a network of wireless body sensors, also called a “body area network,” currently links sensors together via electromagnetic radio-frequency waves — similar to those used in cellular phones.

 

Radio waves have drawbacks such as the heat they generate, and because they propagate poorly through skin, muscle and other body tissue, they require relatively large amounts of energy, he said.

 

Ultrasound may be a more efficient way to share information, Melodia said, because roughly 65 percent of the body is composed of water. This suggests that medical devices, such as a pacemaker and an instrument that measures blood oxygen levels, could communicate more effectively via ultrasound compared to radio waves.

 

“Think of how the Navy uses sonar to communicate between submarines and detect enemy ships,” Melodia said. “It’s the same principle, only applied to ultrasonic sensors that are small enough to work together inside the human body and more effectively help treat diseases.”

 

Another example involves connecting blood glucose sensors with implantable insulin pumps. The sensors would monitor the blood and regulate, through the pumps, the dosage of insulin as needed in real time.
