The Medical community needs to unite
Every doctor has decisions to make in his hands, decisions regarding the life and death of his patients. Sadly, there is nothing like a perfect doctor or an all-correct diagnosis. There's always a room for improvement. In this era of science and information, correct diagnosis can be made possible with collabaration of medical data from all over the world. Error percentage can be reduced drastically with cooperative working of different hospitals from around the world. This can sometimes make all the required difference between life and death of a patient.,

Re: Platform
When it comes to medicine overcommunicating is far better then undercommunication. This idea is perfect.

Re: Platform
It is inspirational to know that the future of these kids are filled with hope, which perhaps would not have been there before such communications and technological advances.

Connecting the world
I think this is the start of a revolutionary step in the way medical treatment is approached.

I"m already envisioning a system that the entire world shares. Imaging that data from all hospitals, clinics, universities and research centers is all being pooled into a single hub of information, and being processed in a way that dots are being connected, leading to possible solutions to some questions.

I think that this is definitly something on the cutting edge of not only technology, but actually reaching out and helping people.

Ironic
It's ironic we're talking about better communications between healthcare providers and patients when physicians are dumping patients and telling them to walk. For instance, the recent guidelines to pediatricians telling them to eject from their care families that resist vaccination. Or the physicians who eject severely autistic patients because 1) they are hard to handle, and 2) they only have Medicaid, which pays little.

Essential to controlling costs, increasing efficiency
These types of communications platforms are exactly what is needed in healthcare to bring down costs and improve efficiency. Healthcare providers, researchers and caregivers need to be able to communicate effectively and quickly, and they should have the fastest, simplest access possible. While privacy issues are certainly a concern, the overriding concern must be getting the cost of healthcare controlled and helping those who provide healthcare throughout the entire ecosystem to do so as effectively as possible.

Re: Platform
I like the idea of caregivers and patients have a platform to collaborate through the platform of social media. I agree that better care can be a result of better communications. Hopefully, health care organizations will utilize technology for more effective purposes. We have a long way to go, but I guess baby steps are the beginning to making strides.

Re: Platform
@WawasAltaf,

we seem to talk a ton here on E2 about how behind healthcare often seems to be in adoptin such tools. Patients don't have access to the same kind of tools for monitoring their own healthcare that they do for looking up, say, dinner recipes, and that's a bit of a problem. Connectivity not only makes things more personable and more convenient, it makes them more effective and more efficient.

the cost and effort will easily pay for itself in 10 or 20 years if we make changes like this nationally/globally. Every healthcare organization should strive to make changes like this to how they use technology.

Better Care Through Better Communications
from a certain perspective, what we're talking about here are technologies that already exist. All the servers they're using at Tgen are ones Dell has already developed, and all the connecitity and information sharing services they're using are already in use in other fields. However, it's not enough for these technologies to exist, especially in healthcare - someone has to put in the work to make them the perfect fit and put them into action. These are the folks who are doing just that. It;s the kind of work we should all aspire to do.

Re: Platform
I totally agree Waqas - It will not only improve the patient's care with continous communication between the doctors, patients' reletives and researchers but it will also be very productive in foreseeing the future outcomes of diseases by continous monitoring and information sharing about patients' illness, its causes and the treatment followed. Indeed, it can save a life.
