DOCSF22: Spotlight on Interoperability

In this episode, Davide Vigano, co-founder and CEO of Sensoria Health, speaks about the importance of interoperability and personal health data for patient monitoring. He uses the discussion about patients owning their data as a jumping point to discuss data liquidity, collection, and quality. Davide shares lessons from his experience with the HealthVault Initiative at Microsoft and explains how companies like Sensoria Health are focusing on interoperability in the digital health space to reduce paper records and enable real data liquidity. Sensoria, like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, enables multiple devices in the internet of things to improve monitoring as self-reported patient data is insufficient or not accurate enough. Davide argues those devices with integrated soft robotics can collect quantified data that, combined with self-reported data, are meaningful enough to train AI and ML algorithms to help providers and patients. He gives an example of how this technology can digitize gait and optimize its analysis. Listen to Davide Vigano’s fascinating lecture on bringing technologists and clinicians together for better interoperability and data!

DOCSF22: Spotlight on Data

In this episode of DOCSF, we have a chat with Tate Gilchrist about interoperability and data.  This timely topic comes in handy because people in the ecosystem are needing to be interconnected with different software that manages health data. Tate has a lot of experience with different EHRs and has an exclusive perspective on the orthopedics side of interoperability. Today, there is a large variety of ways in which companies are managing data, especially when it comes to healthcare data, and Tate offers his thoughts on the ideal solutions for the future. What Tate recognizes as a common thread between these companies is the patient, which, in his opinion, will be the center of interoperability.  In the last 10 years, there’s been more legislation around the involvement of patients in healthcare data. HIPAA, TEFCA, and FTC regulations govern how patients and different healthcare providers can access and manage data. Tate exposes which other legislations are coming into play to help patients handle their data through a universal authentication pathway.   Join Tate in this two-part discussion about interoperability and data integration! Next time we will chat with Davide Vigano about this topic, don’t forget to tune in!

DOCSF22: Digital (Orthopaedic) Transformation: Human-Centered Design and System Thinking in Health Care

In this episode, Kenny O'Neill, partner, and principal of Digital Strategy, Transformation, and Innovation at EY Global, talks about human-centered design, how it then evolves into systems thinking, and its applicability. Kenny starts by talking about his experience as a pilot and the similarities between what he sees in healthcare and a plane cockpit when it comes to information being displayed to users. He then explains how human-centered design is building things for specific users, integrating the information into the system so that it can work effectively for the said user. This type of design requires engaging and empathizing with them, prototyping continuously, and always aiming toward extreme users to get the best possible performance for everyone.  Kenny goes into systems thinking at scale within healthcare. He argues it's about thinking about how human-centric design and technology connect to the broader, interconnected system. It’s innovating in the digital space and using platforms to aggregate and translate data that can better enable AI, machine learning, and robotics. He also speaks of taking behavioral and social ecosystems into account and the use of digital hospital practices, consultations, and primary care from smart homes. Kenny then foresees 15 years forward to envision healthcare’s future. He predicts out-of-hospital precision medicine facilities, more digital tools integrated into hospitals, and different bundled or episodic payment models. Listen to Kenny O’Neill talk about human-centered design in the future of healthcare. Learn about how it can evolve into systems thinking and how it can be applied for the better!
