Our COO, Daniel Kivatinos, was part of a Health 2.0 last week called “Fixing the Clinical User Experience”. His presentation was focused on a recent integration. While much of our work at drchrono focuses on providing doctors with a seamless EHR experience, we also recognize that patients are in charge of their health in ways never seen before. Passively receiving health stats and records has become a thing of the past for patients. In fact, […]

At their Spring Forward event on March 9, Apple unveiled a newly redesigned laptop, the Macbook. The new Macbook offers a glimpse into the future of personal and professional computing. The new Macbook has been completely redesigned to create a notebook that weighs only two pounds and measures 13.1mm thick, lighter and thinner than the Macbook Air. It also comes with a 12” retina display, the thinnest display ever used on a Mac. Additionally, […]

Technology is rapidly changing the way we manage healthcare. Mobile technologies like smartphones and tablets put tools that can have a positive impact on patients’ health management right at their fingertips. We’re all spending a lot more time on these technologies, after all, so it makes good sense to find ways to use them to make substantial changes in every patient’s health outcomes. Not only that, we believe that it is our job as healthcare […]

Think that the US is falling behind? Or is it just an intelligent waiting move? Sometimes being patient pays off. Being first mover with an uncertain technology has often disadvantages. Recently, the European Medicines Agency recommended the approval of a gene therapy drug, called Glybera, for the treatment of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency. Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency is a genetic disorder affecting 1 to 2 persons per million, caused by mutations in the gene that codes the LPL enzyme. This enzyme […]

Designing a winning product is difficult. From the definition of Product Design, a successful product entails more than the product and its customers, but also its market analysis, concept definition, and effective implementation. With social media on the rise, personality and storytelling is becoming more integrated in the life of a product. However, there is one thing about product design when it is being applied in the healthcare industry that defines its success: the users. […]

Can you live without a heart? Literally. The answer is Yes. Take a look at this documentray that will shake your beliefs of human physiology forever. When Drs. Billy Cohn and Bud Frazier from the Texas Heart Institute diagnosed Craig Lewis’ amyloidosis condition, they knew he will die within hours. The only option for them was to cut out his entire heart and replace it with a centrifugal pump. Lewis then left the hospital and returned to his wife. Conventionally and theoretically, Craig […]

In our previous post, we showed you an external device to help diabetics automatically control their insulin levels, however this next technology could replace a failing organ forever. In the U.S. alone, each year 570,000 people suffer from chronic kidney failure. However, in 2011 there were only 16,812 kidneys available, leaving 92,000 patients on the waiting list, which is life-threatening. Scientists at UCSF with 9 other labs are working on an artificial kidney that can […]

From our previous post, now let’s go back to the future. This time to 2011. At the 2011 TEDxMaastricht, Daniel Kraft gave a great speech in which he shows us an overview of the emerging trends and technologies which are going to play a great role in how medicine develops in the coming decades. In fact, many of these technologies are already here. Mobile platforms, 24 hour at home monitoring, artificial intelligence, social networking, massive data […]
We have written about the emerging medical technology trends, in which we tried to predict where the next Steve Jobs will come from. But instead of telling you about it, we will show you this time. Let’s use a time machine and go back to 2009, where Eric Topol, a leading cardiologist and director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute in California, tells us about the upcoming wireless technologies that will impact healthcare. Topol states that we […]

Today I got my Fibit from drchrono. I requested it not only with the goal of learning about emerging medical technologies, but also to fulfill a personal interest: hacking it to see how it works. Healthcare is a 4.5 trillion dollar market with huge room for improvement. There is one specific market that still remains relatively untapped: healthcare consumer electronics. If someone can predict where the next Steve Jobs will emerge, it will probably come from this arena. Convergent Technologies […]

Picture this scenario, a scenario we all find ourselves in on a fairly regular basis: You’re a customer shopping numerous options until you choose the company that provides the product you want. More times than not, you do your due diligence and vette out the best from the less desirable offerings of the same product or service. You cross shop. You talk to sales reps. You look for flaws. You’re careful. After going through this […]
