Electronic medical records can transform healthcare

Electronic medical records can transform healthcare | Global Insights | Scoop.it

Information technology is not an end in itself. An intelligent hospital must in the future deliver a personal, customised service to its patients, and provide the highest quality care both in the hospital and at home. To support accurate diagnosis and treatment, an electronic medical record (EMR) is essential, according to Dr Byung-Chul Chang, professor of surgery at Severance Hospital in South Korea. Dr Chang identified an urgent need to reduce adverse medication events and errors in hospitals.

 

In a transformational journey towards being an intelligent hospital, Severance Hospital looks towards a global future where every patient is connected to their mobile personal device, whether smartphone, tablet, ultrabook, or whatever device that future technology may bring, Dr Chang said.

 

In such a future Severance Hospital has a startling vision to achieve zero medical errors and adverse events. The transformation to quality care depends upon the correct identification of the right patient at the right place; the prescribed medication for the right patient in the right doses; a timely consultation with the right clinician; and patient care with smart monitoring and surveillance.

Key technologies driving healthcare

Key technologies driving healthcare | Global Insights | Scoop.it
We are witnessing a shift in the health sector to the seamless provision of healthcare. Many elements are coming together, such as more cost-efficient care delivery, intelligent analysis of patient information, more price-conscious and scalable software delivery models, and new methods of interaction between individuals and caregivers using mobile devices and social media in a way that has not been known before.

 

This is changing the fabric of healthcare and leading to a paradigm shift – it is no longer just about healing the sick. With more information becoming available, it is now also about prevention. More fundamentally, healthcare is moving from episodic, isolated patient care towards electronic health record-centric or patient-centred care, where the entire continuum of care is not just involved but also accountable for the patient outcome. To this end, healthcare is increasingly using intelligent tools to obtain smarter clinical information to improve patient outcomes.

D*Haus: Dynamically Responding to its Environment

D*Haus: Dynamically Responding to its Environment | Global Insights | Scoop.it
Conceived for the harsh, climatic extremes from ‘Lapland to Cape Horn and Aleutians to Auckland’ The D*Haus concept can respond dynamically to its environment by controlled adaptation to seasonal, meteorological and astronomical conditions.


D*Dynamic can ‘metamorphosize’ and transform itself into 8 Configurations, adapting from winter to summer, and day to night by literally moving inside itself. The thick heavy external walls unfold into internal walls allowing glass internal walls to become facades. Doors become windows and vice versa. The layout can be adapted to suit different living situations, as the design can change its shape and perspective both seasonally and throughout the course not only dawn to dusk but also twilight to sunrise....

One can rotate the house so that the user is in sunlight, while the house generates energy through solar panels. From a manufacturing point of view, the design deploys one set of materials to achieve so many possibilities...

 

'D*Haus designs are inspired by the philosophy of dynamic living: we truly believe in ideas that can help improve and inspire our daily lives. This can be done through flexibility, adaptability and originality.'

Using satellite images, young students learn about human impact on environment

Using satellite images, young students learn about human impact on environment | Global Insights | Scoop.it

With the help of satellite images fifth and sixth grade students at Mr. Tim Blum’s geography class at the University of Wyoming Lab School got a birds-eye view of how humans have impacted or modified their environments. Images acquired by satellites decades apart showed cleared forests, irrigated crop fields in the middle of the deserts, altered landscapes (new roads and water bodies), and urban growth.

 

SD: Geospatial technologies can sound daunting for teachers that don't feel that they are specialists. Yet there are simple ways to make sophisticated technologies very relevant to just about any grade level as this article demonstrates.

The next trend in higher education: Freelance Professors? | Global Insights | Scoop.it

"'Self-employed professor' could soon be an actual job title, thanks to two companies that are helping a small group of college professors market their own online courses, set prices for them and share the tuition revenue... Although online tutors are available to help, the company's course material is automated. With the new 'Professor Direct' courses, however, a pilot group of instructors will lead courses."

The Digital Promise in Education | Global Insights | Scoop.it

"There are few more urgent challenges facing America than preparing our students for successful careers and lives in the 21st century. Over the past several decades, educators, reformers, and policy makers have tried many approaches to help us meet this challenge, but the result is the same: test scores, imperfect but reasonable yardsticks of performance, are flat lining or showing modest growth. We must accelerate our progress to prepare all of our students to compete in the global economy."

What Teachers Really Think About Game Based Learning | Global Insights | Scoop.it

"Whether teachers are using jeopardy style questions to do test prep or bringing in online games like Minecraft to teach spatial reasoning, games have long been an effective way to engage kids. We Are Teachers, an online resource for educators, surveyed teachers about how they use games and found that 67% use traditional and digital games in the classroom. Just 22% said they didn’t have time to integrate digital games and 56% say they don’t have adequate access to computers for digital game time."

Many years have passed and plenty of milestones were met along the way, from the first PC clones in 1982, to the Internet revolution in the 90s and the so-called post-PC devices hitting the market today. We didn't want to let the occasion go by without paying our respects to the legacy that the 5150 brought. Here are some of the most important developments in the industry over the last 30+ years.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, September 22, 2014 3:11 PM

Rhode Island excels at having the lowest CO2 emissions. This makes a lot of sense when you consider the characteristics the State as it relates to pollution. Manufacturing is not a large part of Rhode Island's production, therefore CO2 emissions from factories is less than many other states. Furthermore CO2 from automobiles is low because of the small size of the state. Commutes for people working and living in Rhode Island are no longer than an hour each way. The minimal drive time for each person also cuts down possible emissions. 

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, November 1, 2014 8:41 PM

This fun and interactive map shows where each state excel and where they falter. Its interesting to see that in a state a small as Rhode Island, it has the highest rate of breast cancer in the nation. And the state of Colorado has the most avalanche deaths, which when you think of the state of Colorado, you wouldn't think of Colorado as a state with a lot of avalanches. What really surprised me  was Alaska as having the most airports per capita. One wouldn't think this of Alaska since it is a state covered mostly with snow. And it raises the question as to how many people travel in and out of the state. With all of the states surprises, one thing that shocked me a bit was how much organic food is grown in this land. That's one thing that is surprising. I once viewed this land as a of imports of just about everything, but looking at these two maps have changed my outlook of this land.

Brian Wilk's curator insight, January 24, 10:12 PM

Scary to look at the New England region as five of the six states are highest in a form of cancer.Is there a causal connection that should be investigated? Probably doesn't help we live next door to NY and NJ, highest in air pollution and most Superfund sites respectively. As a parent with a son who has autism, I feel for the folks in Ohio. Both California and Florida get the "duh" award for leading in smog and boating wrecks.
