Are you struggling to manage your health condition?

 

Why update your technology?

Does your startup understand their competition?

Maybe your team members don’t care. But your financial backers will.

Software that follows up patients discharge with social media style reminders and alerts is great. But what if the market is already crowded?

How useful is data from blood pressure, pulse and ECG monitoring devices, without the patients age, medical history and daily weight?

There’s a world of difference between glowing write ups in the startup media and venture capital funding, and being able to break into the health market place.

Is it bed block caused by delayed discharges, not enough staff, or the health funding favouring hospital admissions over community beds?

What sort of solutions does Wikihospitals promote?

Emergency Department bottle necks and bed shortages
Delays and inaccurate diagnosis of epilepsy
Patients looking up medical symptoms on 'Dr Google'
Stable ventilated patients stuck in Intensive Care for months on end

Abuse in Nursing Homes

Abuse is more common that most people realise. Aged care training courses are paid to accept AND pass students, no matter how unsuitable they are. The health bureaucracy blocks complaints and hides information on reported errors. The victims are elderly and frail patients.
