Jorge Moll Neto is the President of the D’Or Institute for Research and Teaching. He talks about how innovation is leading to major advances in healthcare worldwide. Today, this is especially true in the Silicon Valley along with its neighborhoods as the advances in digital technology have now overflown into healthcare. This has opened new horizons for this industry.
Dr. Albert Chan, is the vice president of innovation, Sutter Health. This is the second largest healthcare network in the US. He went to Brazil to promote the use of new technologies into its routine.
He showed how new technology could transform the way in which patients are cared for. This means that a routine appointment will allow the doctor to retrieve all the information about the patient with a single voice command. Google Glass has also been used for this purpose.
Using this technology allowed for a more efficient as well as humanized interaction between the doctor and patient. It ensured that 100% attention was focused on the patient, as the doctor did not have to devote time to consulting files or taking any kind of notes. This also allowed for higher safety as well as depth in medical evaluation. After the consultation, all the information gets structured and reviewed by the specialist remotely. This leads to increased productivity and improves upon the patient experience. Watch this video on youtube.com.
Jorge Moll talks about smartphones being integrated into medicine. The users can access their medical history and make appointments online, rather than going through a “call center.”
All these initiatives reflect the future of medicine. The various health sectors of Brazil, such as hospital networks, besides entrepreneurs, startups, as well as individual developers, and venture capitalists, along with private and public institutions of teaching and research will be engaging and be collaborating more. This will lead to rapid advances in medical innovation in Brazil. Jorge Moll stresses upon the need to cultivate this kind of partnerships that will accelerate the process.
This is not an option anymore, but the need of the hour. Hence Jorge Moll suggests incorporating all this in the field of medical care. Follow Jorge Moll on Linkedin.
