The latest news and information about innovations in healthcare.
Hi there ! 😁
Alaedine’s here. I hope that you and your family are safe 💪
➡️ This week has been mainly covid-focused regarding the news. It happens that the coronavirus rases four types of concerns/thoughts :
  1. Detection: it’s all the discussions around testing and tracing.
  2. Treatments: all the scientific papers around drugs like Remdesivir, Hydroxychloroquine, etc.
  3. Vaccine: when and how.
  4. The after: will we come back to a similar before-covid state? Or can we change for the best?
▶️ We triied here to summarize some of the main news. Google just released a publication about the use of a Deep Learning system deployment. Another publication, in Heart Rythm, underlines the importance of wearables in cardiology. The last article shows an algorithm that can (more or less) predict the next disease of a patient based on its EHR.
Wish you great week 🎊,
What about science?
Each week, we curate some scientific articles that introduce a disrupting innovation or a worth-reading opinion.
A research by a Google team. Very interesting to read!
Doing AI is good. Making a product is great. Integrate it successfully to the clinical workflow is the best.   •   Share
