Why did this image of a crying doctor go viral? Here's why. | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
Outside of a hospital, an ER doctor grieves the loss of his patient. He's a true hero.
Art Jones's insight:

Excerpt:

Health care is a life of fighting, defending yourself, sacrificing yourself, working weekends, missing holidays, and sometimes things like losing a patient makes you want to throw up your hands and say, “Fuck it, I’m out.” But you can’t. You do it because you love it. You do this thankless and unappreciated job because you want to. I can’t believe I’m in 6-figure debt and gave up the nights and weekends of my 20s so I could voluntarily do it. But I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.”

Internet Of Things To Change The Face Of US Healthcare

Internet Of Things To Change The Face Of US Healthcare | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things is already revolutionizing our lives. Endowing "things" with better-than-human eyes and ears (sensors) and the ability communicate is leading to improvements in our personal lives and business productivity in countless ways.

The IoT is, however, still a nascent paradigm, and has just begun to penetrate into some sectors such as healthcare. The IoT promises a veritable plethora of time and money-saving innovations for healthcare, including remote patient monitoring, telehealth and behavioral modification platforms that will dramatically improve  chronic disease management and reduce costs.

FDA approves wireless contact lens sensor

FDA approves wireless contact lens sensor | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
A single use contact lens that has a tiny sensor embedded to wirelessly send eye pressure data for up to 24-hours has won US approval.

The FDA granted a marketing licence to the Sensimed's Triggerfish system, which measures tiny changes or fluctuations in an eye's volume.

The Swiss firm's contact lens sensor transmits data to an adhesive antenna worn around the eye, and this in turn sends the information to a portable data recorder worn by the patient.

Completing the information chain, the recorder can then transfer the data via Bluetooth to a clinician's computer.

The FDA said the device may help healthcare professionals identify the best time of day to measure a patient's intraocular pressure, elevated levels of which are often associated with the optic nerve damage characteristic of glaucoma.

William Maisel, acting director of the Office of Device Evaluation in the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said: “The Triggerfish gives the clinician 24-hour continuous monitoring of changes in IOP patterns that otherwise could not be obtained.

Is Healthcare Up Shift’s Creek?

Is Healthcare Up Shift’s Creek? | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
Healthcare organizations have no clue (or paddle) for navigating the seismic disruption in service delivery models resulting from the ‘Internet Of Me’
Art Jones's insight:

"Healthcare’s greatest challenge is getting out of its own way—coming out from the shadow of fear and casting new light on  new methods, new ways, new technologies. No longer can it afford to simply talk about change, but rather it must embrace it. Right or wrong, success or failure—we will never know the outcome if we don’t try. And if we aren't failing at times when deploying some of the new we all fear, then we aren't succeeding."
