“The value of Current was demonstrated in our very first patient – a chronically unwell patient who suffered a decline in oxygen saturation, which Current detected sooner than standard care would have caught it, letting us intervene earlier and in the patient’s home,” said Neil Perry, the trust’s chief information officer. “With Current, we’ve seen the ability to deliver intervention at a far earlier point and prevent hospital readmission.”

“We’re focused on how we make meaningful sense of the large amounts of real-time health data we’re collecting from patients, turning it into an action that can be taken by a patient, a doctor, in order to preventively manage a deterioration — before it becomes a deterioration.”

“We hope and expect to see further moves by CMS to incentivize innovation in the future. As our population gets older and suffers more chronic diseases, it will place increasing strain on an already strained system. Only through innovation, such as remote patient monitoring, can we truly change health care delivery and properly prepare it for the future.”

“The session will talk about how most medical after care these days happens at home, from post-operative care to maintaining medications. In addition, around the world, many people in need of care cannot get physical access to medical services. Solutions to these problems might lie with the IoT in the form of remote patient care and streamlined communications. Delegates in this session will learn about how this can work, and how the IoT enables and secures these remote solutions.“

“In most hospitals, 90% of patients still have their vital signs collected manually and repetitively by a nurse. In 2015, approximately 75% of hospitals adopted an EMR driven by the financial incentives of the HITECH Act. Yet an article in JAMA illustrates the potential for patient harm due to poor user experience in some EMRs. The Medscape National Physician Burnout and Depression Report 2018 showed that two main drivers of physician burnout were too many bureaucratic tasks and the increasing computerization of their practice, such as EMR integration.“

“I went to a difficult school, with very low levels of academic achievement. I never felt like I fitted in, so at 16 I left and went to study computer science. Glasgow, Scotland, is not Stanford or Silicon Valley. Building companies is not the norm here — going to work for large corporations, particularly investment banks, is. In our final year, we are meant to spend the number interning and I had an offer from one of these large banks. I turned it down to start my first company.“
