Actually, compacts devices using ultrasound cost 50 times less than using machines in healthcare centers. For instance, virtual reality helps speed healing while artificial intelligence can improve spotting lung tumors more effectively than medical experts. There are a lot more innovations revolutionizing medicine at a rapid pace.
Supplying medicine using drones
Since March, UPS has been carrying out a campaign named Flight Forward, in which autonomous drone is used to deliver important medical samples such as blood and tissue between two hospitals. According to the CEO of UPS, they are looking forward to adopting this UPS Flight Forward into the operation of their company. The device is able to deliver urine, blood and tissue samples together with other important medical things such as drugs and transfusable blood. Currently, UPS is not the only pioneer when it comes to air deliveries. Wing, which belongs to the company Alphabet of Google, received similar approval from FAA to bring about deliveries for both Walgreens and FedEx.
The biggest big data
There are around 7.5 billion people and billions of us are monitoring our health using such wearable devices as smart watches or conventional devices like monitors measuring blood pressure. If there were a method used to aggregate all that data from people and turn it into an anonymous and searchable resource, medical researchers would have a chance to utilize such a wonderful appliance to develop drugs, lifestyle studies and so on. The big data company named Evidation, which is located in California, has also made such a similar tool, with information from 3 million people volunteering to offer a huge amount of data. Evidation partners with other companies including Sanofi and Eli Lilly in order to work on that data. As a result, there have been a lot of studies conducted, on such subjects as sleep and diet to cognitive issues. From one of projects of Evidation, the Christine Lemke has a rare genetic disease causing regular back pain and the company is collaborating with Brigham as well as Women’s hospital on that project.
