We all know that America is in the midst of a public health crisis and that we will face a shortage of up to 95,000 physicians by 2025. The good news is that there are many technologists out there who see the problem and are actively creating solutions to fix it.
Caredove, for example, is an e-referral platform that is connecting infants with screening programs in order to identify and stop the development of life-altering diseases. Boston Children’s Hospital, too, created an Alexa-based ICU tool that helps streamline clinical operations, freeing up hospital bandwidth. Similarly, Cloudticity offers data interoperability solutions that collect, manage, and analyze data, allowing healthcare, life science, and genomic companies to spend less time trying to make sense of their data and more time actively helping the world.
