Healthcare is rapidly catching up with technology. There are several apps, devices, gadgets that provide various services to keep us healthy and transforming how health care is delivered. Connecting with patients, monitoring their health remotely has become more easy for doctors due to ubiquitous use of mobile phones and other technologies. This resulted in better service to patients and more business opportunities for hospitals , apps developers, wireless medical device developers etc. But adoption of modern technologies, apps by hospitals is very slow due to various reasons. One common problem doctors face is the accuracy of the results provided by the apps developed by people who are more technologists than doctors. These resulted in a attempt by MIT Media lab to create a common platform for allowing would be entrepreneurs Doctors and other field experts to collaborate and bring accuracy in diagnosis of patients. The above attempt also reveals that there is great potential for students, Medicos and app developers to check if they can create solutions that could lead them to start a company on their own. The MIT Media lab’s Hackathon allowed many such enterprising individuals to come up with various health solutions. Below links will guide you to start creating some on your own. Good luck and keep checking my blogs for more interesting and useful articles.
