The relative high cost and poor outcomes of the US healthcare system as compared to the rest of the developed world is well documented. In his first Inaugural Address, President Obama promised to “wield technology’s wonders” to improve the quality and lower the cost of medical care in America. This hasn’t happened. The benefits IT has brought to most every industry, hasn’t been witnessed in the medical industry. This may be because best practices for developing IT solutions simply don't take into consideration what needs to go into building successful medical products and treatment approaches.
I’ve seen this gap – and the consequences it can cause – while building and deploying hardware-based tools and software applications, including EMR and ERP systems, for a variety of industries.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 4th at 6pm EST, we discuss what needs to be done to bridge the gap between IT product development and the medical community’s need for evidence-based research and clinical trials.
We’ll also discuss a project I’m working on in researching Personal Health Records, or PHR systems, as an effort to tailor IT product development best practices to meet healthcare’s intrinsic needs from new products and treatments. If successful, the approach may change how Health IT solution are develop throughout the industry.
Join Us tomorrow @ 6pm EST right here! & Join the conversation on twitter @techtodayradio, our blog, or FB. Listeners are also invited to call us Live on Air @ 646-652-4385.
As I was looking into Liberty Health Share I wanted to know how they could keep medical costs down and reduce my out of pocket expenses, and yet stay solvent? Dale Bellis is the Executive Director of Liberty Health Share. He told me about the law of large numbers and computer algorithms.
And yes, he said last year every members monthly share fee that they pay dropped 50-dollars. For more on the 3 medical cost sharing programs offered by Liberty Health Share, go to liberty health share dot-org slash John Daly. Stay informed Not Inflamed.
ENVISION THIS: A technology that heats and cools homes, increases comfort, saves money, and benefits the environment all in one.
Our guest, Adam BarkerHoyt of Maine Alternative Comfort, sees the efficiency and savings offered by minisplit heat pump technology as something that can substantively benefit people, the environment and the economy. He and his team use their 40 years of combined experience in fields of energy, math, and science to educate customers, and training subcontractors to install the minisplit heat pumps.
Maine Alternative Comfort has installed 700 heat pumps in Maine homes, including that of the energy guru, Dick Hill, Professor Emeritus of the mechanical engineering department, and the governor’s mansion. Heat pumps are easy to install, easy to operate and save on energy costs. Adam says, “A typical homeowner in Maine spends roughly $3,000 per year in oil, kerosene, propane, or electric heat. But, a simple retrofit can cut these costs in half! With a savings of $1,500 per year and an initial cost of $3,000, Fujitsu minisplit heat pumps pay themselves off in 2 years... resulting in thousands of dollars of savings, increased energy security, and a greener environment.”
The best part is they can be installed in just a couple of hours and operated at the push of a button.
