Technological Healing: Automatic (Vitals Monitoriing) for the People

Technological Healing: Automatic (Vitals Monitoriing) for the People | Medical Devices | Scoop.it

Much of the enthusiasm for bringing the information revolution to medicine reflects the assumption that more information means better health care. Actual data offer reasons for caution, if not skepticism. Take telemonitoring, in which today's mobile apps and tomorrow's nanosensors would measure blood pressure, respiration, blood glucose, cholesterol, and other physiological indicators. "Previously, we've been able to assess people's health status when they came in to a doctor's office, but mobile and wireless technology allow us to monitor and track important health indicators throughout the day, and get alerts before something gets too bad," says William Riley, program director at the National Heart, Lung & Blood Institute and chairman of a mobile health interest group at the National Institutes of Health. "Soon there won't be much that we can't monitor remotely."


So goes it... one day we will all know our vitals every day, all day. I for one, welcome our sonogram app iPhones.

Unconnected medical devices will soon become obsolete, conversation with Qualcomm Life VP Rick Valencia #mHS11

Unconnected medical devices will soon become obsolete, conversation with Qualcomm Life VP Rick Valencia #mHS11 | Medical Devices | Scoop.it

"Qualcomm's 2net Platform looks poised to make a major impact on medical device connectivity and allow for the creation for new kinds of health applications and businesses."


Qualcomm Life's recent interview with a number of bloggers suggests that medical devices not connected to IT infrastructure (or the cloud) may be obsolete in years to come. While that may not be totally believable, there is an interesting snippet in the interview:


"In the long run, we think the value will shift to the informatics. It is not an area we have spent a lot of time on yet nor yet have a lot of expertise in. But for right now, and for a number of years to come, this is about getting devices on the net followed by new health software as connected to that medical device data."


So, we have millions of patient monitoring devices churning out petabytes of data... the next step is analyzing that data across populations. Follow the data, follow the money.
