Joe Biden Just Gave the Most Inspiring Speech You Will Hear All Year

Posted by George McLaughlin on Oct 24, 2016 3:17:56 PM

“To the clinicians in the room, how many times has a patient looked you in the eye and said:

‘Doc, can you just give me two more weeks? I want to walk her down the aisle.’
‘Can you give me another month? He’s graduating.’
‘My daughter’s about to deliver our first grandchild, let me see it, please let me be there.’

They aren’t asking to live. They aren’t asking to be cured. They’re asking for one more moment and it matters. It matters a lot. Every damn moment counts and every moment we delay matters.” 

- Joe Biden, October 24th, 2016, Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit


Improving Diabetes Research & Treatment with Clinical Data Integration

Posted by George McLaughlin on Oct 24, 2016 11:48:15 AM

1 in 11 people worldwide live with diabetes. That’s over 415 million people suffering from a life-threatening disease that is also the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower-limb amputation. While decades of research and treatment have lead to enormous improvements in both prevention and treatment, the disease, which already represents 12% of the world’s health expenditure (~$673 billion!), is growing at a frightening rate.

Patient engagement.

Some would say it’s a myth. Attempts to increase patient involvement in managing their health have been hurled from every angle, but it seems that until they are faced with a life-threatening illness, chronic diseases, or a broken bone, patients just can't be bothered to truly and proactively care about their health.


Blockchain in Healthcare: Hype or New Hope?

Posted by George McLaughlin on Oct 12, 2016 12:02:24 PM

If you bring up blockchain in a normal conversation, most people will immediately start thinking about bitcoin. They’ve probably never used it, but they’ve heard enough to acknowledge it as some “new kind of money”. If you fall into this category, (don’t feel bad, you’re in good company), I’d suggest you check out this quick explainer video before reading further, because this post about blockchain has nothing to do with money.
