Blockchain Technology and Clinical Trials
Nidhi Bajpai - GROUP MANAGER | September 16, 2019
282 Views

Data hack, theft, or infringement are major issues which cannot be ignored when it comes to drug development. Trained professionals or hackers determine and manipulate vulnerabilities in a computer system and/or network to gain unauthorized access.

In principle, blockchain is a database which is decentralized. It may be regarded as a pooled set of information, which is shared, immutable and irrefutable – if changes have to be made, the database cannot be altered without the consent of relevant stakeholders.

Blocks are added to the blockchain in a chronological and linear sequence. Each block is linked to a preceding block and holds a timestamp. Also, blockchain eliminates the need to record the same data separately and thus eradicates the inadvertent errors that occur due to the need to capture duplicate records which are redundant.

Life sciences industry is looking for compelling use cases where AR can transform patient/customer engagement, make treatment delivery easier for healthcare professionals, and aid advanced research in pharmaceuticals. With its ability to accurately recreate complex scenarios, superimposing digital assets onto real-world surroundings, AR could change how we approach research, development, and delivery in life sciences.


The Rise of Personalized Medicine with Predictive Analytics
Pawan Sohi - AVP, Customer Advocacy, Life Sciences and Healthcare | April 30, 2019
944 Views

Predictive analytics has the potential to enhance value-based care for patients while also driving down costs for payers and providers. As value-based care becomes the norm, next gen enterprises need to leverage predictive analytics to improve patient experience, optimize population health, and reduce the per capita cost of healthcare. Combined with AI and ML, our ability to apply medical knowledge across vast population data sets can now generate valuable new insights. With greater insights into patient behavior and needs, healthcare will operate just like Amazon, Walmart or Uber does today.

Increasing the rate of clinical productivity and bringing the products to market faster remain the key focal points for the Pharma industry. This is especially true in these times of pricing pressures, hyper-competition from generics, and outcomes-based reimbursement contracts from payers. With the enactment of the 21st Century Cures Act in late 2016, the USFDA has led initiatives to accelerate medical product development to bring newer innovations and advances in drug development.

Artificial intelligence – Changing the role of medical devices in patient care
Partha Marella - Senior Vice President | March 13, 2019
711 Views

Traditionally, medical devices were restricted to giving a certain set of outputs for a complimentary set of inputs, which would be used as information by doctors to make decisions. The accuracy of decisions would be purely at the professional’s discretion.

But as healthcare becomes more specialized and complex, quality and attention to detail is struggling to keep up with patient requirements.The key to bridging this gap lies in medical technology (Medtech) and how AI, IoT and Analytics can be used to enhance the scope of traditional devices used by both healthcare professionals as well as patients.With intelligence powering Medtech, decision making becomes more certain, preventive care is more achievable, and patient centricity is front and center.


Potential Use Cases for Big Data and Analytics in Healthcare Payer Organization
Manmanth Kumar - Senior Management Trainee – Healthcare Sales Support | February 25, 2019
543 Views

The only way to find out how Big Data is making the world a better place is by tracing its uses in healthcare. As per HIMSS, the amount of healthcare data being generated is increasing at an exponential rate of 48% a year, hence, healthcare organizations are looking for ways to manage and leverage the same.

To better understand the impact of Big Data and analytics, we can segment the healthcare payer organization into three operational areas, i.e., front office, back office, and middle office.


Blockchain - A Panacea for Healthcare Systems
Shivendra Singh Yadav - Senior Product Manager – NGDC PMG | February 22, 2019
156 Views

Blockchain technology has already made its way to the healthcare sector, and this is only the beginning for future possibilities. Healthcare majors are still trying to figure out what this technology means for them.

There are some really interesting ways in which blockchain technology can improve healthcare operations. But they might not be a cure all for the industry today. Solutions like Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) came into the scenario to provide automation and healthcare process digitization, but gradually organizations realized the challenges of reporting and lack of collaboration in EMRs. These systems are designed in siloes, with no single protocol being followed by different EMR solution providers, resulting in a duplication of efforts.

While it is evident that technology is reshaping the healthcare domain, it’s good to keep in mind this is a marathon, and not a sprint. Organizations and entities are vetting how the technology can better support their operations, while future applications will certainly be discovered along the way. It’ll be a fascinating process to watch.
