Affordability, accessibility, and higher quality – these are the primary goals of the 2017 Digital Health Tools Symposium. The people behind the success of the event made sure that all participants, including stakeholders, researchers, and practitioners, among others, would be able to learn from each other contribution of knowledge and expertise. The said event lasted for two days, and speakers encouraged the participants to ask questions and interact so that the knowledge gap is decreased and there is an opportunity for novice and amateurs to collaborate for the improvement of health care.
In relation to this, here are some innovations that can help improve our healthcare system.
Drones Utilized For Sending Medical Supplies. The trial program, Flight Forward, has been discreetly delivering medications and pertinent tissue or blood samples to other hospitals. Because it succeeded, it has been recommended by 20 other hospitals around America for the next two years. Undoubtedly, Drone delivery of medical supplies will be one of the most significant health care innovations in history.
Diabetes Cure Through Stem Cell Therapy. When you have diabetes, it will be like therapy all over again, plus the incorporation of a healthy eating lifestyle. By using stem cells, Doug Melton, the innovator, created some type of replacement cells that can produce insulin in the body. This particularly rose the interest and the hope of the people, and eventually, it was sold for $950 million. Some say that if this is heaven-sent for people with diabetes, as soon people with diabetes will be able to eat and drink like those don’t have diabetes and there’s be no increased sugar levels.
Global BioBank. The 54-gene was developed to provide a resource of genetic material in the African continent. This is because clinical trials and studies are mostly targeted to the Caucasian groups, thus placing a blind spot in the research of drugs worldwide. Soon, medicines will be made based on African people’s DNA, thus creating equity drug development and research.
