Hospitals have thousands of things constantly going on at any one moment. However there is hope for order in this chaos! The companies in this session have developed and designed 5 essential products to keep hospitals running smoothly.
Alan has been working with Emerge.MD for several years and it’s now a significant platform for medical collaboration. It leverages cloud and crowd and has been deployed in 3 of the 7 largest health care systems in the US. But Alan’s going to share both his personal story and how the technology is improving hospice care in Arizona.
First introduced two years ago, the Unmentionables covers those topics that aren’t talked about in health care and has quickly become one of our most popular sessions. That first year we covered childhood exercise, divorce and personal relationships. In 2011 we highlighted sleep, caregiving, money, suicide and work stress, with demos from Zeo on sleep, Mindbloom on community and mindfulness with GravityEight to bring it all together. This year we’ll visit even more unmentionables including an overview of the Vulnerability Index, poverty, sex and end of life issues.
Alan Pitt, NeuroRadiologist, emerge.md
Alan talks about workflow and practice at the Barrow Institute, and how he’s advising emerge.md to help patients with problems and help doctors find patients. emerge.md allows patients to register with specific health issues to allow physicians to find them.
The “Health 2.0 in the Hospital” panel took place the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 conference.
Alan Pitt, Neuroradiologist & Clinical Informaticist, Emerge.MD & MiHospital
He’s shown us Emerge.MD but now Alan, from the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Arizona, is back to demo MiHospital, a customer satisfaction and clinical tool. MiHospital tracks patients once they leave the hospital and allows for instant quality assurance feedback. MiHospital has already won a $100,000 innovation prize from Catholic Healthcare West. This demo was given during the “Health 2.0 in the Hospital” panel at the San Francisco Health 2.0 conference in 2011.
