  3. 3. 1.are Revolutionizing the Health Industry How Collaborative Tools
  4. 4. Like a stem cell, a tablet, computer, smartphone can evolve into almost anything, from a personal desktop to a globally-connected communications center.
  5. 5. That versatility, coupled with today’s new healthcare technologies, will soon enable your tablet to, for instance, read vital signs in real time.
  6. 6. 2.is Always In At Last the Doctor
  7. 7. The move to digital devices in the healthcare industry is already dramatically improving efficiencies, lowering costs, and providing higher quality patient care and outcomes. -$
  8. 8. By combining new communication and collaboration services with digital health systems, providers and their partners can greatly improve costs, care, and products.
  9. 9. These technologies have been deployed in a wide variety of healthcare settings.
  10. 10. They’re enabling hospitals to extend the reach of their continuing medical education courses.
  11. 11. 3.A Hospital without Borders Case Study:
  12. 12. An excellent illustration of how the new healthcare technologies are being used is the genial OPENPediatrics platform, created by Boston Children’s Hospital and IBM.
  13. 13. The platform has digital and video social network capability for collaboration and knowledge exchange as well as curricular pathways for training clinicians on essential concepts.
  14. 14. The core values of the platform read like a guide to best practices for the new healthcare continuum: Develop and promote sharing of high quality educational materials for the international exchange of information. Educate
  15. 15. Transform the current paradigm of medical education through the development of noveltechnologies to enhance learning worldwide. Use social technology to enable the sharing of information among healthcare providers worldwide. ShareInnovate
  16. 16. Work together with partners worldwide to enhance the capabilities of a knowledge exchange platform. Conduct and share innovation research to increase understanding of medical learning behaviors around the world. ResearchCollaborate
  17. 17. 4.Digital Healthcare The Tools to Build
  18. 18. In the past, technology was bought and amortized over time, but today, Cloud and SaaS allow organizations to “rent” services that are scalable and automatically updated when necessary.
  19. 19. In the communications arena, UC&C (Unified Communications & Collaboration) will play a critical role in enabling healthcare professionals to support the complex relationships within and without their organizations.
  20. 20. The greatest advantages from UC&C will be gained by people and processes with wide networks that need to connect frequently, and often in real-time.
  21. 21. They’ll benefit from highly-requested services such as immediate status of availability, ease of coordination, and rich tools for collaboration.
  22. 22. 5.Tomorrow Digital healthcare
  23. 23. For the first time we can digitize humans. We can remotely and continuously monitor each heart beat, moment-to-moment blood pressure readings, the rate and depth of breathing, body temperature, oxygen concentration in the blood, glucose, brain waves, activity, mood – all the things that make us tick. - Eric Topol, cardiologist and geneticist, “The Creative Destruction of Medicine” “ ”
  24. 24. Once the entire healthcare continuum is globally connected,
  25. 25. think of how many lives will be saved, how many illnesses will be prevented, how many unnecessary procedures, tests, hospitalizations and other medical expenditures will be avoided, and how much medical care itself will improve, even in the most remote parts of the world.
