Pediatric Cardiologists Turn to Clinical Analytics -- InformationWeek

Pediatric Cardiologists Turn to Clinical Analytics -- InformationWeek | Medical Equipment | Scoop.it

A group of highly specialized healthcare providers has engaged an analytics firm and a systems integrator to build a national patient registry in hopes of speeding the development and adoption of best practices for treating critically ill patients with pediatric and congenital heart ailments.
The Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium (PC4) will tap the expertise of ArborMetrix, an Ann Arbor, Mich.-based vendor of analytics technology for acute and specialty care, and CardioAccess, Inc., which runs an international cardiology clinical outcomes database, to custom build the new national registry. PC4 was formed in 2009 with the help of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant, and includes experts in pediatric cardiac critical care, cardiac surgery, and cardiology from across the U.S. and Canada. PC4 aims to improve the quality of care by collecting data on clinical practice and outcomes, providing clinicians with timely performance feedback, and fostering a culture of continuous improvement through analytics and collaborative learning. The PC4 registry will focus on capturing data from each patient's medical record, then applying analytics to make patient-specific recommendations for treatment, said PC4 executive director Dr. Michael Gaeis, a pediatric cardiac intensivist at the University of Michigan's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital Congenital Heart Center.


"Data serves as the foundation of providing high-quality care to any population," Gaeis told InformationWeek Healthcare. "But data by itself is not enough." Many registries are good at collecting data, according to Gaeis, but there often is no "actionable arm." PC4 wants its registry to offer actionable ideas.
"Registries don't matter if you can't take the data and help patients," Gaeis said.

 

ArborMetrix will provide real-time access to information in the CardioAccess database and help identify high-performing pediatric critical care cardiology centers. "We [will be able to] disseminate information widely and provide targeted improvement to lower-performing organizations," Gaeis said. He said the registry also will help PC4 member institutions set up collaborative learning opportunities. "The research component is a real critical piece of it," he said.
PC4 is modeling its registry after those of the Northern New England Cardiovascular Study Group and several registries ArborMetrix has worked on in its home state, including the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative and the Michigan Bariatric Surgeons Collaborative. "I think it's a pretty tried-and-true blueprint," said Gaeis.
The University of Michigan is hosting the data coordinating center, supported by the university and residual NIH funding, according to Gaeis, and PC4 will be looking for ongoing funding.
The system is in alpha testing and should move into beta in January. Gaies said the consortium hopes to have 10 centers operational by the second quarter of 2013, "then rapidly expand." This early group includes Children's Hospital of Atlanta, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, the University of California-San Francisco Benioff Children's Hospital, and the recently renamed Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. The registry will be offered to all PC4 members, although each site will have to sign its own contracts with the vendors, according to Gaeis.

10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution

10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution | Medical Equipment | Scoop.it

This year IBM dedicated its Five in Five series (an annual list of five technologies that are likely to advance dramatically) solely to sensors.

 

Digital sensors of the touch, sight,hearing, taste and smell kind along with their potential are all profiled by IBM Sensor technology is going through a renaissance as companies develop smart and innovative new ways to track data using them.

 

Sensor innovation is in-part driving the Digital Health Revolution as digital health companies find ingenius ways to integrate them in to apps, devices and other peripherals. The smartphone will play an increasing important role in all of this as they go from having six built-in sensors currently to having sixteen in the next five years.

 

If these predictions are correct then the next five years will be half-a-decade of sensor proliferation meaning the Digital Health Ecosystem will grow exponentially. In the meantime though there are already a plethora of digital health sensors in use or in the pipeline that are helping people improve and, in some instances, save lives.

Nine health wearables for your head | mobihealthnews

Nine health wearables for your head | mobihealthnews | Medical Equipment | Scoop.it

Google Glass may or may not be on its way to catching on with the consumer crowd, but, if nothing else, it shows that Google doesn’t think consumers will have a problem wearing a computer on their head. As wearable health real estate goes, the head is a contentious spot for a sensor, but a number of companies are making a go for it. Brainwave sensors, like Emotiv, which has already raised $400,000 on Kickstarter, need to be on the head to function. Other sensors, like the activity-tracking swim goggles from Instabeat or the smart cycling helmet from LifeBEAM, are built into headgear that athletes are already used to wearing.

Smartphone biosensor app + cradle can (obvz) run basic diagnostics, but also detect food toxins, bacteria, water contamination

Smartphone biosensor app + cradle can (obvz) run basic diagnostics, but also detect food toxins, bacteria, water contamination | Medical Equipment | Scoop.it

A new smartphone biosensor may provide particularly helpful point-of-care possibilities for medicine in remote locations and developing nations.

 

Researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaignare developing a smartphone app plus cradle device that can take food samples and determine whether they have toxins or allergens. It can also detect bacteria and contaminated water, according to a university press release. And, of course, no new biotech app would be complete without claiming to also check medical diagnostics. But all these features combined provide interesting point-of-care possibilities.

 

And they’ve received a National Science Foundation grant to expand that potential–maybe in the direction of iron deficiency testing in expecting moms.

 

According to the release: “Having such sensitive biosensing capabilities in the field could enable on-the-spot tracking of groundwater contamination, combine the phone’s GPS data with biosensing data to map the spread of pathogens, or provide immediate and inexpensive medical diagnostic tests in field clinics or contaminant checks in the food processing and distribution chain. . . .

 

“The entire test takes only a few minutes; the app walks the user through the process step by step. Although the cradle holds only about $200 of optical components, it performs as accurately as a large $50,000 spectrophotometer in the laboratory. So now, the device is not only portable, but also affordable for fieldwork in developing nations

Mayo clinics approach to telehealth and the wealth of insight from the monitored patient data

Mayo clinics approach to telehealth and the wealth of insight from the monitored patient data | Medical Equipment | Scoop.it

Inside the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation in Rochester, a new initiative is taking shape: the development of Mayo’s Center for Connected Care.

“This is a major initiative of the Mayo Clinic across all of its campuses,” says Dr. Bart Demaerschalk, director of the Mayo Clinic’s telestroke and teleneurology program and a vascular neurologist with the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. The vision is to “provide virtual care to patients regionally, within states that are historically Mayo Clinic territories, but also nationally and globally.” And not just in Demaerschalk’s specialty of stroke diagnosis and treatment.

“We imagine that Mayo Clinic can provide telemedicine across every medical and surgical discipline that our institution provides service for,” he says.

Mayo, like many other health care systems, is already engaged in virtual care on a number of fronts: in radiology, dermatology, infectious diseases, and other fields. Demaerschalk’s work in Arizona six years ago helped pave the way.

He and colleagues used technology to improve the speed and effectiveness of communication between Mayo’s stroke neurologists in Scottsdale and the emergency room teams at Arizona’s small regional hospitals. The telestroke platform’s audio, video, and digital connections put a Mayo specialist in the ER virtually, able to talk with patients, see and be seen by them, monitor vital signs, and use diagnostic tools. It was a big improvement over the norm of simply doing consults with emergency physicians on the phone, or transferring the patient to a stroke center. The result, in a clinical study, was a 14 percentage point increase in the accuracy of diagnosis and emergency treatment for stroke.
