Hospital ER: Why you need a realtime artificial intelligence solution
Hospital ERs are chaotic by their very nature as most of the visits are unplanned. The ER is also a significant gateway to admissions into most hospitals making it an ideal location for implementing a realtime artificial intelligence solution
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Hospitals Will Start with the Mundane
The most popular view of AI in hospitals is probably the vision of a machine augmenting the physicians and surgeons. However, there are other much more mundane aspects of hospital operations and administration that will likely start using Artificial Intelligence based programs much before the advent of the A.I. physician.
Voice Recognition: Want to Know Something in the OR or ED Just Ask
It's amazing to realize how our interactions with computer systems have evolved over the years. Starting with cards and keyboards and moving on to touch and chat it has become easier and more intuitive to interact with systems. Voice recognition takes that to the next level especially when it comes to the OR or the ED.
The Internet of Things, Healthcare and Talking to Fridges
Innovation comes in various flavors. Revolutionary, evolutionary and incremental. The connected web has been a revolution that is on par with any other innovation in the history of mankind.

8 Hospital Preparedness Lessons from Past Pandemics
Just as We Can Learn From the Art of Pandemics Past, so too can hospitals and healthcare organizations. The consensus is that given world overcrowding, global climate change and the high level of world travel, global pandemics aren't going away. So, what lessons do recent outbreaks such as Ebola in 2014 and SARS in 2003 offer and how might healthcare technology come to the rescue? Here are eight hospital preparedness lessons that come to mind.
EHR Interoperability For Actionable Healthcare Insights
We love data. Data represents the best means to ensuring a better patient journey. And, with EHRs capturing valuable patient data, the opportunity to put that data to valuable use is significant for improved outcomes. The challenge, though, depends on interoperability, so that EHR data can meld with other data to yield actionable insights.

How to Address Emergency Department Patient Flow Issues with Health IT
Emergency Departments (EDs) are one of the most challenging areas of any hospital to manage: High volumes of patients, often without enough clinical staff to care for them in a timely manner. The most critical cases need to be prioritized, without upsetting other waiting patients. Necessary equipment and care team members need to be located quickly, when they are needed most.
