This WPF video shows how current biosensors look and operate when they are in pill form. The pill sensors highlighted in this video are designed to be swallowed so they can then detect and report on a person’s body temperature to devices such as smart phones. This video is part of WPF’s High Tech Health series.
The Healthy Cities Project in China is one where mobile devices, mobile health mini-hubs, and sensors are the key way that patients, doctors, government, and enterprises can input, monitor, and access vital health statistics and other information in the cloud. Twenty million people already use this system. Healthy Cities is important for study, because it is a fully established infrastructure in those cities in China where it has been deployed. In the US, the Healthy Cities project is being studied by academics to see how it could be replicated in the US marketplace.
Telemedicine is rapidly advancing. The Mayo Clinic, Kaiser, and other health providers are already in testing to see how doctors can use sleek, rolling telemedicine robots to conduct remote patient interactions and allow for better visual diagnosing. In this video, the company Double Robotics walks us through how the robots look, move, and operate (via an iPad) and how they are already being used in clinical settings today.
From advanced biosensors to healthy cities in China to robots and telemedicine, this is WPF’s video capture of the key trends and technologies at the 2015 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas. This video was premiered at Georgia Tech/Academy of Medicine on Data Privacy Day, 2015.
This video is part 9 of a 14-part video series on health privacy and health information exchanges Video: Now that I know about health information exchanges, how do I know if my doctor or hospital is sharing my information? Not all health files are automatically exchanged in HIEs. To find out if your doctor or
