Based impacts impacts the Medic Mobile projects achieve, could we replicate these to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in particular regional , remote and discreet communities?

A community health worker in a rural setting can now enroll a pregnant mother or a newborn baby into essential services, continuously monitor and report on their condition, notify clinics of observed danger signs, and receive advice and assistance.Preliminary data from a Medic Mobile project in India has shown an increase in immunization coverage by more than 20% by sending mothers an SMS notification when their children were due for vaccination.Tools have been deployed to help districts manage the stock levels at rural outposts and respond faster when supplies are low.

5 Medical Technologies Revolutionizing Healthcare

5 Medical Technologies Revolutionizing Healthcare | Student Requests | Scoop.it

A deeper look at five technologies that are currently advancing exponentially and radically reshaping healthcare. In other words, for the long suffering, there is plenty of hope to go around.


3-D printing 


3D printing is already making its presence felt in medical device world. Ninety-five percent of all hearing aids are today 3D printed. This tech is also pushing into prosthetics. There are custom-made back braces for scoliosis patients and casts for broken bones (perforated with holes so people can finally scratch through their casts) and, in the latest development, 3D printed facial prosthetics (noses, ears, etc.).


Artificial Intelligence

It started with IBM’s Watson. After besting humans on Jeopardy back in 2011, Big Blue sent their thinking machine to medical school. Now loaded up with everything from journal articles to medical textbooks to actual information culled from patient interviews, the supercomputer has remerged as an incredibly robust diagnostic aid that is already being used for everything from training medical students to managing the treatment of lung cancer.


Brain- Computer Interfaces

We’ve been hearing about BCIs for a little while now. The tech originated out of the desire to help paraplegics and quadriplegics control computer cursors with only their brains. Of course, these developments will continue apace, bringing far more liberation to the disabled then ever before possible, but the bigger news is in BCIs that can control robotic limbs or even restore function to paralyzed limbs.


Robotics:


The robots are coming, the robots are coming, the robots are, well, here. Whether we’re talking the da Vinci Surgical System—which has performed over 20,000 operations since its 2000 debut—or newer developments like the nanobots swimming through our bloodstream and scraping plaque from our arteries, robots are already deep into the healthcare space.

Point-of-Care Diagnostics


In medicine, one of the major promises of technology is patient empowerment—especially when it comes to diagnostics. Suddenly, patients no longer have to go to the doctor’s office or hospital. Instead, in the comfort of your home, a system called the  Tricorder will analyze data, diagnose the problem, and send that information to a doctor who, quite possibly, can treat you remotely. In the developed world, where doctors make diagnostic errors 10 percent of the time, this will make a significant difference in quality-of-care and significantly reduce the roughly $55 billion spent annually on the malpractice system) In the developing world, this will make healthcare far more accessible.

Ellie Kesselman Wells's comment, December 21, 2013 9:26 PM
Re Point of Care: in the developed world, machines will make diagnostic errors a lot more often than physicians. And in the developing world, yes, access to care would improve but that doesn't address the other issue, which is paying for required treatment, whether pharmaceutical or otherwise. I'll go complain in the comments for the original post at Forbes, not here, as it isn't your fault! Thank you for sharing with us; I don't intend to seem ungrateful.

8 Types of Technology That Will Be Essential in the 2015 Workplace

8 Types of Technology That Will Be Essential in the 2015 Workplace | Student Requests | Scoop.it

"If technology continues to evolve at the current rate, the 2015 workplace could look quite different from today's office spaces -- and may even involve less traditional office space with the rise of telecommuting. From a company's hiring process to sharing knowledge with employees, technology has the ability to change the way we all work.

 

What technology will be essential in the 2015 workplace, but doesn't exist yet?" from: http://www.huffingtonpost.com

 

NOTE: This short post has 8 thought worthy services and technology that would prove mighty helpful in this digital world that is more complex every day. I like the info for "Learning Academies to Keep Up With New Knowledge" (aka Lifelong Learning).

Bahrain Information Technology Report 2013 : RnR Market Research | Student Requests | Scoop.it

 

BMI View: The total size of the addressable Bahrain IT market in 2013 is forecast by BMI to beUS$372mn, up from an estimated US$346mn in 2012. BMI forecasts a CAGR of 8% for 2013-2017.

Global IT trends such as cloud computing, virtualisation and convergence willcontinue to gain ground in the Bahraini market.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer hardware sales: US$219mn in 2012 to US$233mn in 2013, +6% in US dollar terms.Forecast in US dollar terms upwardly revised due to macroeconomic factors and the release ofWindows 8 should provide a boost to replacement PC purchases.

Software sales: US$41mn in 2012 to US$44mn in 2013, +7% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollarterms downwardly revised due to macroeconomic factors but there are evolving opportunities in thefinancial sector.

IT services sales: US$94mn in 2012 to US$91mn in 2013, +8% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollarterms downwardly revised due to macroeconomic factors but emerging areas such as cloud computingand virtualisation will drive investments.

Risk/Reward Ratings: Bahrain's score was 48.3 out of 100.0. Bahrain remained in seventh place in ourlatest MEA RRR table, behind regional peers Qatar and Kuwait, but ahead of Oman and Lebanon.

Women in Science: Who's Encouraging Them?

Women in Science:  Who's Encouraging Them? | Student Requests | Scoop.it

A young woman entered college, full of the dreams she’d been holding tight since early grade school: dreams of being a doctor.  But then...


Excerpted:


Then...

She entered college in pre-med as a biology major. The biology part of pre-med went just great. But the chemistry was tough, and, in the middle of her sophomore year, when she saw she’d gotten a “D” in organic chem lab, that was that. She dropped out of all her science classes, switched over to History and tried to forget that she’d ever wanted to be a surgeon.


______________________
   
...what if she had not let that one “D” chase her out of her science major?


And why did no one try to encourage her to keep plugging away?

    

______________________
    


...after 34 years in radio and TV, Cynthia Canty still finds herself wondering what if she had not let that one “D” chase her out of her science major? And why did no one try to encourage her to keep plugging away?


So when the New York Times Sunday Magazine recently ran a long piece by writer Eileen Pollack titled “Why Are There Still So Few Women in Science?” it struck a very personal chord.

As Eileen finds, women are still underrepresented in the STEM classes and careers that are so crucial to our country’s future prosperity.


...The University of Michigan is working hard to find ways to nurture and support women students and faculty in the sciences.
