The article lists technologies to look out for in 2019, according to Bill Gates. After analysis of the MIT Technology Review’s yearly content around emerging technologies, he was able to select 7 of them with the most impact. These special applications have a future in healthcare because they come from none other than the maestro himself.
Bill Gates besides the selected bunch of applications wrote:
“We’re still far from a world where everyone everywhere lives to old age in perfect health, and it’s going to take a lot of innovation to get us there.”
“For now, though, the innovations driving change are a mix of things that extend life and things that make it better.”
Healthcare IT makes the use of technology for better outcomes. Such applications will facilitate the reimbursement process and providers in general. P3, as a MIPS consulting service, assimilates with technology to report on behalf of the providers and value-based care will only benefit from these technological marvels. Please follow us on LinkedIn for a vitalized experience and find the latest information on the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
The revolution is in their essence, and, nobody will be able to deny their absolute magnificence once the benefits rollout in public.
1. The $10 Blood Test
We attribute this invention to the bioengineer, Stephen Quake of Stanford University.
What does it do?
Physicians will be able to identify women who are set to deliver before time.
Extraordinary, as it sounds, it will ease the pain of the parents, especially the mothers. Children born prematurely have a less chance of survival, but, due to this test, the survival rate is going to increase, big time!
When we talk in terms of MIPS Quality measures, such creations can improve, the mortality rates and reveal better population health outcomes. Patient satisfaction levels will go up while keeping healthcare quality-driven.
2. Screen Environment Enteric Dysfunction (EED) Disease
The probe developed by Guillermo Tearney, MD, Ph.D., and a professor at Harvard Medical School, physicist and pathologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is going to show you evidence of this degenerate disease.
What does EED do?
It slows down or stops the absorption of nutrients.
Furthermore, the probe will replace the expensive endoscopy used in gastrointestinal cases.
Amazing, isn’t it?
The third world or poor countries have a reminiscent amount of EED patients. Therefore, this goes out to you – time to heal is soon, very soon.
3. German Cancer Vaccine
The next invention comes from Germany, and, it is against cancer that has spun the world over its head. In 2019, BioNTech and biotech giant Genentech are having clinical trials for the first cancer prevention vaccine. It is going to destroy cells with cancerous elements attached to them.
Tremendous achievement, as it is, we are one up against the illness, and, now cancerous growth will find a legitimate challenger to stop things from going south.
4. Reduce Greenhouse Gases
The next invention is going to reduce greenhouse gases and slow down the process of climate change. Intense weather conditions, too much heat or too much cold are weather conditions attributed to climate change.
David Keith, Ph.D., a climate scientist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts implements ways to store carbon dioxide from the environment and convert it to synthetic fuels. Public health has only one way to go, and that is up!
5. Toilets with Cleaner Outputs
Time has come for toilet wastes to stay away from disposal into water resources. Energy-efficient toilets are in focus as an effort to stop contamination of the environment. One of these models comes from Tampa, University of South Florida and the other from sanitation enterprise Biomass Controls.
The two toilets are self-sufficient and don’t need water to move fecal waste to the disposal site.
Water contamination causes the disease to spread from one population to another.
Nevertheless, with the help of these innovative waste stations, we will be able to process waste without using water and put an end to water-borne illnesses.
6. Alexa – The Amazon’s Marvel
Despite intense marketing campaigns for the device, Alexa proves to be a helpful companion for real. The voice-enabled assistant has features which benefit hospitals and practices to understand speech in both emergency and normal situations.
The artificially intelligent gadget can be the difference between sickness and wellness, expanding its role in patient care.
We would love to see you come up with healthcare inventions we’ve missed in the comments below.
