Disruptive Innovations to Integrate Health Systems: Onil Bhattacharyya at TEDxStouffville

The Canadian health system faces rising costs and an increasingly complex patient population. Low and middle income countries are finding frugal ways to provide care to over 2 billion people living on less than 2 dollars a day, despite an aging population and the rise of chronic disease. A range of disruptive innovations can help us rethink health care delivery by better connecting providers across our system and exchanging with emerging markets.

Sharrock's insight:

After learning about some of the challenges of radiology diagnostics including noise of initial scanning, I wondered if photography companies that excel in digital imagery enhancements and image stabilization and other error corrections, have gotten involved in the healthcare fields, especially in that area. This is one company, so there are probably others. So, students interested in the healthcare fields might enter the field from digital processing, math/informatics, computer graphics, as well as from the the standard healthcare majors. 

 

Keep an eye on these companies as they begin to work with additional digital image innovators (or buy them).

Fifteen Influencers Shaping Digital Health | Bionic.ly

Fifteen Influencers Shaping Digital Health | Bionic.ly | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it

The digital health ecosystem is advancing at a rapid pace and it’s an exciting time to be on the cusp of a health revolution. Like all revolutions, a revolutionary – or revolutionaries – are required to challenge the status quo and bring about change to the system either through brute force or, in digital health’s case, doing things better, cheaper and more innovatively. While the list below is totally subjective it’s a good start to identify those that are making a difference in health by merging the worlds of biology and technology together.

In no particular order.

Sven Awege's curator insight, February 25, 2013 4:17 AM

Social media and HIT combined can bring the behavioral changes, but as usual it will take time, more time than the pioneers expect.

The good thing is that it will definately happen, and will democratise health along the way.... slowly!

Alex Butler's comment, February 25, 2013 2:08 PM
I agree it will take time Sven, the interesting thing for me is that we have moved so quickly already. In a short space of time we have gone through the the democratization of information, into the even more powerful connectivity to each other and are coming out of the other side looking at big data and artificial intelligence shaping personal health management on a scale unimaginable 15 years ago. Technology becomes revolutionary though when it is no longer exciting but mundane and ubiquitous.
