2013 IEEE Point-of-Care Healthcare Technologies (PHT)

A special topic conference focused on point-of-care technologies for global healthcare issues is proposed. The proposed conference will bring research presentations and technology discussion forums on recent technological advances and global issues on implementation of POC technologies. Though the challenges of providing high-quality healthcare in developing countries are different than those in developed countries, there is a common goal to provide access to health monitoring and assessment technologies to people with limited or no healthcare facilities. While the developed countries may find POC technologies as effective means for reducing healthcare costs and improving efficiency, POC technologies are critical in responding to essential healthcare needs in countries with large populations or rural areas. The developing countries in the eastern part of the globe accounting for more than 2/3rd of the population of the world face the basic challenge of providing minimal healthcare to all people.

Equivalence testing the easy way

V. Luzar-Stiffler; C. Stiffler ITI 2002. Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Information Technology Interfaces (IEEE Cat. No.02EX534), 2002

The purpose of the article is to demonstrate an equivalence testing software application written under SAS Institute software designed for use by pharmaceutical and other medical research professionals. Besides making the entire equivalence testing procedure easier and more efficient, the application "EquivEasy" offers three main advantages over similar software: (a) testing for 3×3 in addition to 2×2 crossover designs, (b) ...


Simulation Studies of Multi-armed Bandits with Covariates (Invited Paper)

Nicos G. Pavlidis; Dimitris K. Tasoulis; David J. Hand Tenth International Conference on Computer Modeling and Simulation (uksim 2008), 2008

We evaluate the performance of a number of action-selection methods on the multi-armed bandit problem with covariates. We resort to simulations because our primary concern is the speed with which the different methods identify the optimal policy, and not their asymptotic behaviour. The experimental results show that the performance of the ε-greedy methods is robust, while the interval estimation strategies ...


Simulated fall detection via accelerometers

Justin Boyle; Mohan Karunanithi 2008 30th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2008

We have derived a fall detection algorithm with high sensitivity and specificity from a single accelerometer device worn at the hip. A small clinical trial to obtain accelerometer data corresponding with actual falls experienced by elderly patients failed to provide a statistically significant number of fall events from which to develop an algorithm. Consequently, the detection algorithm was based on ...


Representation of domain knowledge needed to define relevant study variables for clinical trials in urology

W. D'Hollosy; P. F. De Vries Robbe; N. J. I. Mars; W. P. J. Witjes; F. M. J. Debruyne; H. Wijkstra Proceedings of 18th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1996

An important aspect of clinical trial design is to define which study variables are relevant. This describes the data that have to be collected during the conduct of a trial. An underestimation of this aspect of trial design may lead to problems in the later data management process. The authors examined the knowledge needed to determine relevant study variables. This ...


A low-cost biomechatronic system for the restoration and assessment of upper limb motor function in hemiparetic subjects

S. Micera; P. N. Sergi; F. Zaccone; G. Cappiello; M. C. Carrozza; P. Dario; E. Guglielmelli; R. Colombo; F. Pisano; G. Minuco The First IEEE/RAS-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics, 2006. BioRob 2006., 2006

Quantity, duration, content, and intensity of training sessions are very important in order to increase the efficacy of neurorehabilitation. Unfortunately, when traditional therapy is provided in a hospital or rehabilitation center, the patient is usually seen for few hours a week. Robot-mediated therapies could improve this situation. The aim of this work was to verify the possibility of improving motor ...

  • Future Technologies for Medical Applications

    The modern age of surgery began at the end of the nineteenth century because medicine discovered the Industrial Age, with its wealth of revolutionary technologies such as anesthesia, asepsis, microscopy, and new materials. At the close of the twentieth century, the Information Age diffused into medicine, and a revolution of even greater magnitude occurred. To understand the change it is necessary to look outside of medicine to society as a whole and find the underlying principles, and then apply them within our discipline. The medical record is now becoming electronic and nearly all of our imaging has changed from film (atoms) to digital images (bits). Medical education is using computer-aided instructions, CD-ROM, and VR to simulate and supplement cadaver and animal models. With the new research in robotics, even our hand motions are being changed in to electronic signals and being sent from one place to another. The future of medicine is no longer blood and guts, but bits and bytes. A commonality of information enables us to tie together a whole new concept of how medicine could evolve, like an entire medical ecosystem, whereby discoveries in micro-sensors permits new imaging devices, which in turn enable new forms of image-based surgery. It is an upward spiral, one discovery providing a giant step forward toward the next technology and escalating the whole changing system logarithmically. This could help explain why we are all so overwhelmed by the rapidity of our changing profession. Yet the younger generation of physicians-to-be are not so uncomfortable with the rapidly changing technologies. One of their fundamental tools is the ability to understand the world in the form of three-dimensional (3-D) visualization. There is a speculative scenario that can be used as a framework to illuminate the integrating power of this concept. It is referred to as the doorway t o the future and extrapolates to 20, 50 or perhaps 100 years into the future. As a patient visits her surgeon for a consult, she passes through the office door and, just as scanning is performed today by airport security, she has multiple imaging modalities scanning her (perhaps CT, MRI, ultrasound, and infrared). The data are all collected and then displayed as a 3-D image of her (looking like the Visible Human) but with not only correct anatomic structure but also all the biochemical and other data added to the correct organ systems. If an abnormality is seen, such as a colon mass, a virtual colonoscopy can be done on the image by flying through the colon with the same view as an actual colonoscopy. If a lesion is found, the image can be used for patient education, illustrating to the patient exactly what her specific problem is. At the time of surgery, an image can be imported onto the video monitor of laparoscopic colon resection, and with data fusion the two images displayed simultaneously as an intraoperative navigation tool (stereotactic navigation). At the postoperative follow up visit, the patient is scanned again, by comparing the postoperative with the preoperative datasets and using digital subtraction techniques, the difference between the two datasets is automatic outcomes analysis. Because the record is a dataset, it can be stored on a credit card (the U.S. military is using a prototype card called the MARC card) or kept on a Web server to be distributed worldwide over the Internet for consultation. The purpose of the this scenario is to provide an explanation of and rationale for why it is so important to understand how information can empower us, to show the looking glass through which the next-generation surgeon will be viewing the world. To bring the scenario out of the speculative and rhetorical and into the real world, the technologies that these views are presented in this chapter must be held accountable to the scrutiny of science. Only when these new discoveries are properly evaluated with rigorous testing and clinical trials can ...

    Part II of Health Care Engineering begins with statistics on the occurrence of medical errors and adverse events, and includes some technological solutions. A chapter on electronic medical records follows. The knowledge management process divided into four steps is described; this includes a discussion on data acquisition, storage, and retrieval. The next two chapters discuss the other three steps of the knowledge management process (knowledge discovery, knowledge translation, knowledge integration and sharing). The last chapter briefly discusses usability studies and clinical trials. This two-part book consolidates material that supports courses on technology development and management issues in health care institutions. It can be useful for anyone involved in design, development, or research, whether in industry, hospitals, or government.
