Phillips HealthSuite Interoperability is a fully integrated, cloud-enabled health informatics platform to meet diverse workflow needs in the imaging enterprise. Philips Enterprise Performance Analytics – Performance Bridge – now provides operational insights and in-depth analytics beyond radiology to the cardiology department to improve efficiency and help improve efficiencies at the point of care. Both innovations are part of Philips’ portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions [1]an integrated and scalable suite of innovative technologies, analytics and professional services, designed to help healthcare providers continuously improve their performance.

“Building on our deep expertise in medical imaging and our knowledge of enterprise IT, this latest expansion to our portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions will help drive lasting change in imaging services with a increased efficiency and better outcomes for patients and staff,” said Kees Wesdorp, Chief Business Leader of Precision Diagnosis at Philips. “At HIMSS, we will showcase a highly customizable set of data-driven solutions, delivering continuous improvement to meet clinical and business performance metrics with real-time insights.

Advancing precision care with integrated data for meaningful insights
Every second, an exponential amount of health data is generated and mined to gain valuable insights. Today, around 30% of the world’s data volume is generated by the healthcare sector [2]. Successful health data integration is complicated, with multiple user interfaces, complex systems, and slow retrieval of clinically relevant information, which impede workflow efficiency and delay precision care. These challenges have been further exacerbated by COVID-19. At HIMSS, Philips will showcase how the company’s new portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions are designed to improve care planning and coordination with clinical and operational analytics to help improve workflow efficiency. work, patient and staff satisfaction and outcomes.

Vendor-independent solutions support imaging modality data on a common platform
The portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions comprises two essential components. At HIMSS, Philips will highlight HealthSuite Interoperability, a fully integrated, cloud-enabled healthcare IT platform to meet diverse workflow needs in the imaging enterprise, connecting third-party systems and enabling seamless data workflows to streamline workflow. ‘efficiency. This new version of HealthSuite Interoperability will enable Philips to provide integrated IT solutions to help improve clinical workflow, improve patient care and optimize business management.

The platform will support all relevant data types and formats, including DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) images, genomics, pathology, laboratory data, HL7 (Health Level Seven International) standards , formats and definitions for electronic health record message interchange and development, and Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards. HealthSuite interoperability will also support all major electronic medical record (EMR) vendors. Its clinical data repository also offers customers the ability to store and manage granular data, and can be used to create value-added solutions such as health image exchanges.

Expand beyond radiology to offer new cardiology analyzes to improve workflow
Philips data management and interoperability solutions also feature the company’s latest enhancements in Enterprise Performance Analysis – Performance Bridge extend operational knowledge and in-depth analytics beyond radiology to the cardiology department to improve efficiency and help improve efficiencies at the point of care. Philips Enterprise Performance Analytics – Performance Bridge – gives healthcare professionals access to near real-time service performance data through an easy-to-use interactive dashboard. His operational knowledge has helped improve the performance of several healthcare systems, including the Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, where 100% of staff surveyed said Performance Bridge Patient Flow apps saved them time in their workday and improved teamwork and communication. [3]. Additionally, Kootenai Health in Idaho leveraged near real-time insights from Performance Bridge to improve operations in its cath lab. Over 3 years, they documented an increase in radial access rates associated with fewer complications, including major bleeding and mortality, from 9% to 42%, while improving patient comfort and shortening recovery times. recovery. [4].

With these latest enhancements, cardiology departments now have access to critical metrics to support operational performance monitoring in an invasive procedural setting such as the interventional suite, providing data on procedure volumes, utilization of the room, the duration of the procedure and the turnaround time of the laboratory.

Cardiology departments can also access key metrics designed to support operational performance monitoring in a non-invasive procedural setting such as cardiac imaging suites, including echocardiography, with access to procedures, modality/machine usage, number of study types, and report turnaround time. . This new release further demonstrates Philips’ commitment to bringing together the right mix of services and tools to measure and monitor key areas of improvement to contribute to the continuous improvement of radiology and cardiology services to optimize operations, improve workflow efficiency and improve patient outcomes.

London Health Sciences Center will receive about $14.9 million and St. Joseph’s Health Care London about $2.46 million, the Ontario government announced Friday.

The LHSC will use its share to mitigate the costs of additional intensive care beds and other medical equipment, including ventilators.

“The funding will be well used to support some of the augmented service delivery that we have had to undertake during the pandemic,” LHSC President Jackie Schleifer Taylor said Friday.

“We will thoughtfully assess the full costs and work with the government to close this gap that no one could have foreseen at the start of the pandemic.”

LHSC’s budget from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021 was approximately $1.3 billion while St. Joseph’s was $508 million.

During the first weeks of the pandemic, and using their own budgets, LHSC and St. Joseph’s Health Care London equipped their joint laboratory with the equipment needed to process COVID-19 tests.

The pathology and laboratory medicine program has undergone additional expansions and upgrades to increase testing capacity at several times during the pandemic.

The LHSC has also increased its virtual care efforts and launched a COVID-19 outpatient clinic during the pandemic, while increasing critical care bed capacity.

Hospitals not only faced extra expenses during the pandemic, but also hit parking and food and beverage revenue due to visitor restrictions, Schleifer Taylor said.

The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance will receive approximately $2.3 millionFour Counties Health Services in Newbury $112,948 and Strathroy Middlesex General $471,343, Erie Shores Healthcare in Leamington $630,302, Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare in Windsor $1.09 million and Windsor Regional Hospital approximately $5.32 million.

“We have been working with hospitals over the past few months to determine, per hospital, how much money they need,” said Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton.

The LHSC reported 38 COVID-19 patients on Friday, with five or fewer in intensive care. Of the 38 patients, 15 are being treated for COVID-19. The others have tested positive but are hospitalized for other reasons.

COVID-19 hospitalizations at LHSC are a far cry from the peak of the Omicron wave in January, when the hospital had more than 160 positive patients.

“While there is some uncertainty as to what the next year will bring, we are beginning to embark on our journey to recovery,” said Schleifer Taylor.

“This means increasing our surgical capacity and tackling our backlog, reinvigorating our teaching and academic mission, and integrating our pandemic response into our regular operations.”

Global warming expected to increase health burden of hyponatremia Tue, 08 Mar 2022 18:17:23 +0000 Global warming is likely to increase the number of people requiring hospitalization due to extremely low blood sodium levels, a condition known as hyponatremia. A new study from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden predicts that a temperature increase of 2 degrees Celsius would increase the burden of hyponatremia on hospitals by almost 14%. The findings are published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

“Our study is the first to provide precise estimates of how temperature influences the risk of hyponatremia, findings that could be used to inform health care planning to adapt to climate change,” says Buster Mannheimer. , Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Clinical Sciences and Education. , Södersjukhuset, Karolinska Institutet and the first author of the study.

Climate change is expected to trigger an increase in average global temperatures over the coming decades, leading to myriad heat-related consequences for human health. One of these is hyponatremia, which can result from various diseases such as heart, kidney, and liver failure, as well as excessive sweating or fluid intake that dilutes the sodium concentration in the blood. .

Our bodies need sodium to maintain normal blood pressure, support nerve and muscle function, and regulate water balance in and around our cells. If blood sodium levels drop, it can lead to nausea, dizziness, muscle cramps, seizures, and even coma.

It is well known that cases of hyponatremia increase during the summer months. Yet data on temperature thresholds above which risks amplify are lacking, complicating clinical planning and predictions of health burden in future climate scenarios.

Women and the elderly at risk

In the current study, the researchers linked data on Sweden’s entire adult population to information on average 24-hour temperatures over a nine-year period. During this period, more than 11,000 people were hospitalized with a primary diagnosis of hyponatremia, most of whom were women with a median age of 76 years. Average daily temperatures ranged from -10 to 26 degrees Celsius.

The researchers found an almost tenfold higher risk of hospitalization due to hyponatremia on the hottest days compared to the cooler times. Women and the elderly were at greatest risk, with people aged 80 or older 15 times more likely to be hospitalized for hyponatremia during heat waves. The incidence of hyponatremia was largely stable at -10 to 10 degrees Celsius, but increased rapidly at temperatures above 15.

When the researchers applied the data to a prognostic model predicting global warming of 1 or 2 degrees Celsius, consistent with IPCC climate projections for 2050, they found that hospital admissions due to hyponatremia could increase by 6 .3% and 13.9%, respectively. .

Increased health burden

“We think these estimates are quite conservative because we didn’t take into account secondary diagnoses of hyponatremia, extreme weather events, or an aging population,” says Jonatan Lindh, associate professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine. , Karolinska Institutet, and co-last author of the study. “Without adaptation measures, this suggests that over the coming decades, rising global temperatures alone will increase the burden of hyponatremia on health systems.”

It should be noted that Sweden is in the continental climatic zone, with buildings suitable mainly for cold temperatures. Therefore, the thresholds observed in this study may be representative only of cold temperate regions.

The study was partially funded by Cebix Incorporated. Two authors report previous consultancy fees from Otsuka Pharma Scandinavia AB, outside of the submitted work.

Institute of Infectious Diseases of the Institute of Human Virology Thu, 03 Mar 2022 04:18:20 +0000

BALTIMORE, March 3, 2022—The University of Maryland School of Medicine Institute of Human Virologya Global Virus Network (GVN) Center of excellence, physician researchers played a collaborative role in the successful transplant last month of a genetically modified pig heart into a patient with end-stage heart disease by creating strategies for monitoring pathogens and developing an infection prevention strategy for this important, unprecedented medical advance.

“Complications from infectious diseases are always a concern in the field of organ transplantation, whether they are infections related to the recipient or the donor, which in this case remarkably happens to be a pig,” said Kapil Saharia, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and Chief of the Solid Organ Transplant Infectious Diseases Service at the University of Maryland Medical Center. “We are excited to work synergistically on this one-of-a-kind transplant by innovating in laboratory tests and protocols that enable monitoring of potential infections derived from pig donors. »

To reduce the risk of infection, the donor pig was raised in a disease-free laboratory environment and screened for many known porcine pathogens before being brought to the laboratory. Although all pigs are known to have the endogenous porcine retrovirus, researchers had not detected any transmission to humans or non-human primates in previous studies.

Procedures that transfer tissues or organs from one type of animal to another are known as xenotransplantations. The Cardiac Xenotransplantation Program of UMSOM, led by Bartley Griffith, MD, Thomas E. and Alice Marie Hales Emeritus Professor of Transplant Surgery at UMSOM, and Muhammad M. Mohiuddin, MDProfessor of Surgery at UMSOM, has tapped into the world renowned Institute to preemptively minimize any possible risk of potential infection.

“The quality of support from IHV for our experimental surgery has been of great help to us,” said Dr. Griffith. “Our preoperative preparation and postoperative pathogen monitoring has been a significant pathway to discovery and treatment.

Dr Mohuiddin said: “Although the evidence is lacking, there is real concern about porcine pathogens causing disease in humans. We will continue to follow the patient carefully with the help of the IHV for zoonotic diseases.

Robert C. Gallo, MD, Homer & Martha Gudelsky Emeritus Professor of Medicine and Co-Founder and Director of the Institute of Human Virology at UMSOM, and Co-Founder and International Scientific Director of the GVN said: “Nearly four years ago, the xenotransplantation group came to see us at the Institute of Human Virology for our expertise, in particular related to human retroviruses which are not unlike that of pigs. Dr. Gallo is world famous for his discovery of the first human retroviruses.

Using what other researchers have published on the porcine retrovirus, researchers at the Institute of Human Virology have developed an in-house PCR test that will be used to screen the organ recipient for the virus. The test will be used to monitor the exposure of healthcare workers to this retrovirus over the coming months. The test will also be used for research animal studies needed to advance this procedure to possible clinical trials. These infectious disease doctors will also monitor the patient for any signs of another opportunistic infection due to taking immunosuppressants.

As a prerequisite for emergency clearance from the FDA, the team developed a hospital infection prevention plan for the University of Maryland Medical Center. The doctors who designed the program included Dr. Saharia, Anthony Harris, MD, MPH, professor of epidemiology and public health and division chief of health care outcomes research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine; Surbhi Leekha, MBBS, MPH, associate professor of epidemiology and public health at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and medical director of infection control and hospital epidemiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center; and Michelle Harris Williams, director of infection prevention at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

“Given that this xenotransplantation was performed as part of life-saving surgery, it was difficult to develop workflows to minimize risk to our healthcare providers and hospital staff, as well as other patients. “, said Dr. Saharia. “We have no precedent for xenotransplantation in a clinical setting, so we worked closely with our own infection control epidemiologists to develop a plan that was safe for everyone involved.”

The infection prevention plan used disposable equipment where possible and rigorous disinfection protocols. Additionally, healthcare facilities are instructed to use enhanced contact precautions when caring for the patient, which includes wearing gloves, gowns, and proper hand hygiene, as well as face masks and eye protection due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. To further reduce risk, patient specimens are hand-delivered to the laboratory and handled in the same manner as other highly infectious agents.

“We are happy to be part of a team led by Drs. Mohiuddin and Griffith over the past few years. This is certainly a milestone in the history of organ transplantation,” said Shyam Kottilil, MBBS, PhD, Professor of Medicine, Director of the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine and Director of the Division of Clinical Care and Research at the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and Senior Scientific Advisor to the GVN. “We will continue to work hand-in-hand with the team to ensure safety and improve clinical outcomes for this patient and others in the future.”

Anthony Amoroso, MD, The Professor of Medicine, Associate Chief of Infectious Diseases and Head of Clinical Care Programs at the University of Maryland Medical School Institute of Human Virology, said, “It’s very exciting that we can work in collaboration to support a pioneering achievement. of Drs. Griffith and Muhammad bringing xenotransplantation into the clinical arena.

Dr. Gallo added, “I would like to congratulate my colleagues in the Department of Surgery, its manager, Dr. Christine Lau, and the other people who contributed to the success of this transplant. Also, in particular, I congratulate the team of our Institute of Drs. Saharia, Kottilil and Amoroso and their colleagues, for their unwavering commitment to supporting this important program and their continued contribution to this unprecedented infectious disease control and detection program, especially in the face of a challenging immunocompromised clinical environment.

Dr. Nyle Fort discussed many topics with SUNY Fredonia students during a Zoom conference last week. Photo submitted

Students at the State University of New York at Fredonia and interested community members had the opportunity to learn about critical race theory, protests, democracy and other issues in the Dr Nyle Fort. Fort gave a Zoom talk titled “Black in America” last week, and shared stories and insights from his experience growing up.

Fort began by telling the story of his mother, who is an undertaker in New Jersey. He said his mother would come home every night, after a day of comforting grieving families, and sneak into Fort and his brother’s room to tell stories. The stories his mother told influenced Fort and provided him and his siblings with an escape from their reality.

“I doubt my mother followed the unemployment statistics, she knew that in our neighborhood if you are young black and poor, it is easier to find a gun than a job”, Strong said. “But in my mother’s stories, we were free to dream, free to be, free to fly above the turbulent winds of racial injustice. During the day my brother and I might be considered statistics, but at night we were free.

Although Fort wasn’t sure his mother knew how protective she was of them, she knew how difficult the struggle could be. Fort, who graduated from Princeton, came prepared with statistics. He said the United States was about 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of the world’s prison population. Fort also said that every 28 hours a black person in America is killed by a police officer or vigilante.

“She knew not to let me out of the house without warning me 15 times to be careful,” he said. “I just turned 32 and every time I leave the house she always tells me to be careful.”

But the story that matters most is the story this country tells, according to Fort. A number of states have introduced bills that tell teachers how to teach racism, but some states are also expanding how to teach racism, which comes down to critical race theory.

“Critical Race Theory goes beyond understanding race as individual prejudice and instead shows how racism is a social construct, impacting all aspects of American society,” he said. “Including housing, education, health care, the economy and the criminal justice system.”

Fort went on to tell the story of Dr. Martin Luther King and how the Dr. King who is taught in schools is not close to the Dr. King who actually existed. He then gave more statistics detailing the injustices black Americans face, using financial numbers from his home state of New Jersey.

“The average net worth of a white family in the state of New Jersey is $270,000, the highest in the country,” says Dr. Fort. “According to the same report, the average income of a black family is $5,900. You might have heard these stories… Black people don’t work hard, it’s our culture, it’s the hoodies, it’s the music, white people are just more frugal with their money. The only problem with these stories is that they are just stories.

As for how white people can help the cause, Fort said the first step is realizing that supremacy is bad for everyone. Fort said people often think racism is only bad for black people, but that’s not the case, and more people realizing that’s not the case will be key in how society evolves beyond the current structure.

“Politically, most white people don’t benefit that much from white supremacy,” he said. “If you look at the history of racism, there’s a reason Italians, Irish and Jews weren’t considered white at one time in this country. Part of the need for these European ethnic groups to become white was that the potential for black and European ethnic communities to build solidarity against the elite was a dangerous possibility. So what are you doing? You graft them into this category of whiteness… There are a lot of poor white people, and you know who they vote for every four years? Someone who does not help them.

Dr. Fort ended his talk by encouraging participants to evaluate the stories their lives tell and to dream of the world they want to see grow in the future. “What story does your life tell? What story does our life tell? What will people say about us when we’re done? » he said. “Are they going to say we drove great cars and graduated from the best schools? Will they say we have been eloquent but silent on the most pressing moral issues of our time, or will they say we have spoken truth to power and stood together in the most vulnerable times?

“Dreaming of a world where Ahmaud Arbery can jog in peace, where Tamir Rice can play in the park and George Floyd can live to see his daughter grow up”, He continued. “A world where Muslims, Jews and Christians can live and pray in peace. Dream of a world where queer and transgender people can safely walk the streets and use the restroom of their choice. Dreaming of a world where women are not subject to less pay for more work. Dream of a world where black lives matter and every life matters. Dream of a world where walls are built to house the poor and not to criminalize poverty.

David White, manager of SUNY Fredonia’s Multicultural Support Services in Fredonia, was grateful that Fort was able to speak to school students and community members, as the topics discussed are always prevalent with what is happening in the United States. United.

“Dr. Strong, Inspiring, Enlightening,” said White. “We thank you.”

HEE report shows diagnostics lead in NHS use of AI Mon, 21 Feb 2022 06:50:23 +0000

Image source:

Diagnostics has become the most common use of artificial intelligence in the NHS, according to the first roadmap report on the subject by Health Education England (HEE).

The report aims to identify the AI ​​impact workforce and comes with the launch of an interactive dashboard showing the distribution, use case profiles, spread and view of set of technology.

Among the key findings of the report are that diagnostic technologies, such as those used in imaging, pathology and endoscopy, have so far provided the most common use of AI in healthcare (share of 34%), followed by service automation/efficiency, P4 Medicine (predictive, preventive, personalized, participatory), telemonitoring, therapeutics and others.

In addition, large-scale deployments of 56 technologies are expected to occur within a year, with 77% used in secondary care, 23% in primary care, and 7% in community care.

The roadmap highlights the need for this to be supported by a holistic, cross-organisational strategy to adapt education on the use of AI in the NHS. It also highlights the need to monitor the spread of AI to ensure equitable access to new products across all regions, points of care and site types.

Another finding was that a total of 155 workforce groups across 67 clinical areas were identified as using AI technologies, with the most affected groups being clinical radiology and general medicine physicians as well as non-clinical administrative staff.

Support the workforce

Dr Hatim Abdulhussein, Clinical Lead of the Digital Technologies, AI and Robotics in Education (DART-Ed) Program at HEE, said: “It is important that we achieve transformation through emerging technologies, helping scalability to improve patient care across the country, and can understand system, journey, and user impact.

“We need to ensure the workforce is ready to support this goal and the ideas in this roadmap will focus our efforts on education and training to achieve this.”

The roadmap was developed in cooperation with healthcare analytics and evaluation specialist Unity Insights, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, the NHS AI Lab and the NHS Accelerated Access Collaborative.

It was produced to build on the legacy of the 2019 Topol review, which focused on preparing the NHS workforce for the increasing use of digital technology in healthcare.

The dashboard allows the user to explore the research data behind the report by filtering by technology type, service point, clinical area, workforce group, and geographic breakdown.

The research reflects the growing consensus that AI will play an important role in future healthcare. HEE released report and scorecard closes NHS Business Service award of master supply contract for use of technology in stroke treatment, NHS England prepares pilot project on stroke assessments algorithmic impact and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has published a set of principles for medical devices using AI or machine learning.

AIISH organizes a national meeting on communication Sat, 19 Feb 2022 13:14:41 +0000
  • More than five million people have speech and hearing impairments, says health mission director
  • Prestigious prayer distinctions awarded

Mysore/Mysore: A two-day 53rd National Conference of Indian Speech Language and Hearing Association (ISHA), Mysuru Chapter, has started in All India Institute of Speech and Hearing (AIISH), Manasagangothri campus this morning.

The event, titled ISHACON, started at AIISH’s Knowledge Park and is organized by the Mysuru Indian Speech Language and Hearing Association (MyISHA). Over 1,300 delegates are attending the event which will feature over 16 plenary lectures, 36 oral presentations of research papers and 115 poster presentations.

Vikas Sheel, Additional Secretary and Mission Director (National Health Mission), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), New Delhi, opened the conference in virtual mode. In his address, Vikas Sheel said that more than five million citizens have communication disorders.

“However, this number was underestimated in the 2011 census. Many conditions that cause disability are not captured in the census classification for disability. Therefore, the estimated number may be much higher than the national census figures,” he said.

It also shows the breadth of issues that speech-language pathologists and audiologists need to focus on to meet the needs of those who require your health care services. “In fact, the 2017 WHO report shows that people with disabilities do not have access to quality health care due to inadequate infrastructure or inadequate skills of the health care provider. These people need and deserve the same quality of services as other non-disabled people because the added disability impairs their daily functioning,” noted Vikas Sheel.

There are many opportunities to expand services, research and design, innovations and advocacy in the field of speech-language pathology and audiology. Over the next few decades, this profession will flourish as an epicenter of groundbreaking research and rehabilitation services. The government is promoting the development of indigenous technology and entrepreneurship through the “Start Up India” and “Make in India” campaigns, the director of the health mission said.

In his keynote address, Dr. M. Jayaram, former Dean of NIMHANS and Speech-Language Pathologist who served as Director of AIISH for six years, explained how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the education sector and training in lifelong learning. speech and hearing.

“It has irrevocably damaged the training of students in the clinical field. Students not being on campus to do their clinical work and the continued decline in the clinical population present almost to the point of disappearance, has affected the clinical training of students,” he noted.

“Training institutions in India should conduct short intensive clinical training programs in areas where they have greater expertise, to help students. National institutions like AIISH need to show leadership. Affected students should also make visible efforts to redress the situation,” he added.

On occasion, Dr. Jayaram assumed the office of ISHA President from Dr. Y. Krishna, Professor, MAHE, Manipal.

At the conference, three eminent personalities in the field of speech and hearing were honored with prestigious oration awards in recognition of their contribution to the field – Dr. M. Pushpavathi, Director, AIISH, received the Dr. N. Rathna Oration award, Dr. U. Ajith Kumar, Professor of Audiology received the Prof. S. Kameswaran Endowment Oration award and S. Rajapandian received the Prof. RK Oza Oration award. Dr. Kalyani Mandke, Director, Mandke Hearing Services, Pune, received the ‘Bharat Award’ in recognition of her service as President of ISHA in 2011-12.
