This webinar will feature real-world cases of patients who presented to an urgent care center or an emergency room—only to return days later for further care for the same complaint.
From basic sorting algorithms to sophisticated neural networks, AI and its offspring continue to generate buzz throughout medicine, business, academia and the media. Much of the chatter amounts to no more than hot air. The most farfetched imaginings are usually easy to spot and dismiss.
Yet accounts of real-world AI deployments—applications with strong potential to improve patient care while cutting costs—are amassing into a category of medical literature in its own right.
Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc., a provider of medical imaging systems and healthcare IT, along with Shimadzu Medical Systems USA announced a collaborative agreement that will accelerate the commercialization of Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) in the US healthcare market. Konica Minolta, Inc. and Shimadzu Corporation collaborated on the development of DDR incorporating Konica Minolta’s new advanced image processing and Shimadzu’s RADspeed Pro radiographic imaging system.
Covera Health has joined with Walmart in a multi-year, strategic collaboration aimed at helping patients receive the right quality of care and avoid inaccurate radiology diagnoses that can lead to misguided and unnecessary treatments.
Intelligent machines are becoming a more central aspect of our lives on a daily basis, with AI having already ingrained itself into how modern hospitals and healthcare providers deliver positive patient solutions. Despite the fact that AI is more important now than ever before, however, many in the public still now very little about how these intelligent machines are coming to deliver personalized healthcare that's specifically tailored for you.
The proportion of fixed general X-ray systems in the U.S. equipped with digital radiography (DR) technology has risen to over 80 percent of the installed base, according to the IMV 2019 X-ray/DR/CR Outlook Report.
Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. announced that its Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) technology, introduced at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The company says 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.
The fax machine was initially introduced by Xerox in 1966, revolutionizing everyday communications. By the 1980s, this technology was ubiquitous, a fax machine in offices and homes worldwide. Almost 40 years later, the communications industry has significantly evolved, the fax machine is obsolete and Xerox is a non-player in the communications world. The Xerox example provides an important lesson to the technology industry.
Uniting the Full Continuum of Care for the Individual: Why Digital Technologies Must Embrace Holistic Patient Engagement
More than half of healthcare professionals believe digitization is transforming the healthcare industry. Of adults 55+, 85% believe technology will improve healthcare in the next five years by delivering faster and more accurate diagnoses, curing diseases, and predicting and preventing diseases and conditions before they happen. However, 35% of seniors feel their health plans do not use any technology to improve access, information, or care, and they want more tech-enabled solutions.
Clinical decision support (CDS) software may reduce particular scans by about six percent. That’s the assertion made in a new, randomized study by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) seeking to address concerns about the overuse of powerful and expensive diagnostic imaging exams.
