In a recent New Yorker article Atul Gawande, CEO of the Amazon, Berkshire, JP Morgan health initiative wrote about “Why Doctors Hate Their Computers.” He points to the soaring physician burnout rate and suicide rates that are nearly double (or triple for women physicians) the average population. The culprit, Gawande believes is the onset of complicated Electronic Health Records (EHRs), also known as Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and his article vignettes how various physicians are approach the problem, including the use of scribes.
Konica Minolta Precision Medicine Announces the Formation of its Inaugural Scientific Advisory Board
Konica Minolta Precision Medicine, Inc. (KMPM), a subsidiary of Konica Minolta, Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announced the formation of their inaugural Scientific Advisory Board. Founded in late 2018, KMPM is dedicated to the advancement of precision medicine that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle to more accurately predict, detect, treat and ultimately defeat disease.
Radiology patients are confident artificial intelligence will improve healthcare workflow and efficiency, but they’re skeptical of the tech itself and remain unsure of how AI will factor into the patient experience, according to a study published online March 14 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
Konica Minolta's Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR), has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration. DDR represents the next evolution in X-ray imaging with the ability to capture movement in a single exam and is a fundamental change in the way clinicians can utilize radiography.
DDR was shown at AAOS 2019 from March 12 to 15 in booth# 3113.

European Congress of Radiology 2019: Konica Minolta strengthens its position in Mobile Diagnostics Summary Hospitals and clinics are increasingly looking into ways to provide the best healthcare to all patients. Mobility is one such way to improve patient care; because sometimes care needs to come to the patient. Bedside exams may be needed in case patients cannot be moved due to the nature of their injuries. In those cases Mobile Digital X-ray is the right technology to use.
Diverse teams may help unlock 3D printing’s full potential. The enthusiasm for the technology and its adoption is expected to continue to grow at a rapid pace, and new medical applications are likely being imagined weekly.
An artificial intelligence (AI) system can interpret and prioritize abnormal chest X-rays with critical findings, according to a study appearing in the journal Radiology. This could potentially reduce the backlog of exams and bringing urgently needed care to patients more quickly.
First movers such as Mount Sinai, Fresenius and Houston Methodist are running AI pilots and enabling employees to work alongside machines.
This is an example of how artificial intelligence (AI) can help improve patient care by pulling together patient data from numerous sources n the elect if medical records that are specific to a patient’s diagnosis and treatment for a specific disease state. This is Siemens’ AI-Pathway Companion introduced at the Radiological Society Of North America (RSNA) 2018 meeting this week.
