Technology

Problems we Address

Health Facilities Unaware Of Their Error Risks

Using outdated technology systems like DOS that is incompatible with any modern software, leaving hospital departments unable to communicate with each other. Not updating messaging systems, leaving staff trying to communicate with each other using 40 year old pager technology. Allowing the use of paper drug charts, when medication errors are such a dangerous problem.  More information

Governments, Insurers and Patients Unaware of Unnecessary Costs

Leaving patients to languish in expensive hospital beds for weeks, while denying funding for technology-based rehabilitation that could improve their recovery rates. Allowing expensive surgical treatments to be done that have little clinical value, while blocking innovative home services that successfully deliver acute medical services at a fraction of the cost. Refusing to implement national bed management software that can give real time updates, then allowing Emergency Department waiting times to blow out, leading to hefty fines.  – Learn more

Patients Unaware They Are Receiving Outdated Treatments

People with type 1 diabetes never told about smart devices and apps with algorithms that are able to predict and prevent life threatening conditions like hypoglycaemia. People with cancer never told that unsafe doses of chemotherapy are being given using paper drugs charts in some hospitals, while specially designed software to prevent this happening is used in other hospitals nearby.  – Learn more
