Healthcare Analytics: Build-Versus-Buy Quandary A Hurdle

The most obvious thing for any Health Care Organization (HCO) to do is to develop in-house infrastructure to manage its healthcare data. That’s simpler said than done, though. Setting up an Enterprise-grade data warehouse not only involves additional hires, there’s some amount of capital expenditure as well as operational costs involved.

Here’s what’s needed – an investment in the right personnel and the right…

How Data Is Changing the Future of Smart Health Technology

“Many products and applications exist today that can help us take steps toward healthier living." - Ben Bajarin

Big data is everywhere. Yes it’s true that it has always been there but, we are just recently finding ways to best utilize it. All industries are being disrupted with the collection and analyzation of data and medtech is no different.

An Analysis of Opioid-Related Facility Visits in New York State

What are opioids?

Opioids are medications used to treat moderate to severe pain that may not respond well to other pain medications. They reduce the sending of pain messages to the brain and reduce feelings of pain.  They include codeine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine and oxycodone.   Hydrocodone medications are the most commonly prescribed for conditions such as dental and injury-related pain.  Morphine is used before and after surgery for severe…

Algorithmic Sensitivity to Social Phenomena Using Fractals

I took only a single biology course during my years in university. My environmental toxicology professor explained that when testing for the LD50 (the dose that kills 50 percent of a population) a certain percentage will probably die right away; on the other hand, some might be able to tolerate unusually high exposure levels. There is a distribution of responses. A related principle applies to stress. People respond differently to stress: some might flee from their stressors (avoid or evade)…

Thermometers and scales to measure weight appeared in retail outlets long ago. Blood pressure monitors perhaps came later. Pedometers and heart-rate monitors seem more recent - possibly closer to my time. I saw several devices while doing this blog intended to electronically record among other things hours of sleep; these are designed to be worn on the body all the time. A couple of weeks ago, I bought something to give the heart rate and blood oxygen saturation level. I consider it a real…

The Algorithmic Man - Epic Battle Against Headless Apparitions

There was a television interview of a man who had to deal with severe breathing problems through much of his adult life.  He underwent various procedures although he found little relief.  In fact, the adverse impact to his body was long-lasting.  So he was surprised to discover how he was extremely allergic to his breakfast cereal, something that he ate almost without fail.  When he stopped eating the cereal, his breathing problems disappeared.  I am sure that many people would regard the…
