With that in mind let’s turn now back to the prevention of medical errors. This is a market that is exploding. A few short weeks ago I wrote an article, my second in this arena, that described nine products of this type. Two days ago I did a new Google search on this topic (okay, I was desperate for an article topic) and I found no fewer than 24 companies now offering these devices in the United States, Canada and England. Many of these devices are now being made in Taiwan and China and installed directly on the flash drives. They are coming in every shape, size and form but unfortunately with little or no functionality.

Yes, they all have some form of password protection and an emergency screen where basic information can be seen without the use of the password. They hold information such as living wills, organ donor cards, healthcare surrogate contracts, past medical histories, allergies, medications and a few hold greater levels of data. Two of them integrate with online personal health records but only one can import and export to electronic medical records.

None of these systems however have one basic piece that is required for credibility in the medical world. It is called change tracking and it is the ability for the healthcare professional reading the portable medical record to look at what changes have been made in the portable medical record and what existed in the record before the change was made. Change tracking is an internal audit of the system and ensures that there has been no tampering that could threaten a patient’s life.

This is truly something new and represents a second generation of portable medical record.

Where will this new medical device find a home?

As the water resistant or splash resistant USB devices these units are already finding a home on the wrists of scuba divers, sky divers, mountain bikers and others who enjoy high fun/ high risk sports.

But I envision a larger market. I envision a day when rather than receiving a flimsy paper wristband at the hospital or nursing home a patient has a portable medical record in a waterproof band around their wrist. When the nurse comes by with their wireless Tablet computer to chart she simply plugs the patient record band in and the records are immediately synchronized. The patient goes nowhere without their chart on their wrist.

When they go home the patient takes the band with them carrying the entire chart in miniature form. The hospital has its copy. The patient has their copy and their copy goes back to the doctor’s office.

In the event of an emergency the patient’s band is on their wrist and it does not matter what emergency room they go into, what EMS service picks them up all the important information is at the fingertips of those there to save their life.

I envision a day when my disaster medical assistance team (MDMS/DMAT-FL3) provides care in a Katrina like event after a natural disaster with subsequent flooding and places a USB flash drive wristband around the wrist of every evacuee. Information on federal assistance, registration for finding lost family members, their own personal information as well as a health record will travel with them from the moment of rescue until their final destination. If they already had a personal medical record on their wrist or in their pocket or around their neck as an independent we in the MDMS/DMAT-FL3 would be able to plug their device into our computers and upload the important information to help them recover their lives and help us treat their injuries.

This second generation of flash drive device holds tremendous promise not only for the transfer of information but even the prevention of medical errors by ensuring that the most basic information is in the hands of those who are making the most important decisions.

I am mohanchen read mathematics at Stanford and remained there for his MS. From 1998-1999 on researched in Evolution and in Animal Behavior in Camrbidge, UK. I was was then a professor in the departments of Anthropology and Biology, New Jersy College, USA. Now teaches at the department of Zoology. Carried out research in several areas of evolutionary biology, particularly in sexual selection and the comparative method.

 

When a patient reaches the decision to have surgery abroad, the easy part is behind him as now he must start the difficult task of deciding on the medical destination followed by choosing the hospital he will want to undergo treatment in.

There are a lot of factors one must take under consideration and look into while going through the process of finding the suitable place. The short version is that you must check countries, hospitals and doctors. The longer version will include looking into hospitals track records and facilities, doctors’ experience and specialties, countries political status and inner stability and of course, cultural and language factors as well as the physical proximity to your home country. When objectively looking into all these factors, patients will be able to find more than one logical location to choose from, they might even find 3 or 4 locations that will make sense, so which will they choose from.

You may not think of Israel, but it is a country that can offer much of what was mentioned when it comes to choosing a medical tourism destination for patients in western countries. Beginning with the medical quality and continuing to the culture and language factors, Israel may be a very logical choice for most.

Firstly, when searching to minimize language barriers, patients will find that the majority of the physicians and medical staff working in Israel are fluent in English. In addition to this, it is very easy to locate surgeons speaking Russian, French, and Arabic in the country. As to the Israeli culture, there will hardly be any “cultural shock” issues as Israel has been nicknamed more than once “The 51st state of the USA”.

Israel is just one direct flight away from most western destinations. Although not as close as Mexico is to US and Canada, it is just a 10 hour flight from the east coast and between 2-5 hours from most parts of Europe as most major cities fly direct to Ben Gurion Airport, just outside of Tel Aviv.

The strongest argument for Israel is its medical standards and healthcare quality. In a “World Health Organization” study published in 2000, Israel was ranked 28th best health care system in the world, while the United States was ranked 37th. The quality of the health care system is in Israel derives from the integration of government policy, health care insurance, doctor- patient ratio, medical technology and medical facilities, as Israel scores high in each of these categories.

In 2009, “Health system in transition” published that “Critical components of the Israeli health system include a sophisticated public health effort run by the Ministry of Health, high-level primary care services provided by the health plans throughout the country, and highly sophisticated hospital care”.

As an example of the Israeli healthcare excellence we can look at its hospitals, such as The Assaf Harofeh Medical Center (AHMC), just outside of Tel Aviv. As the third largest hospital in the country, AHMC is affiliated with the Sackler Faculty of Medicine in Tel Aviv University (The Israeli Medical Association’s Academic council for specialists) and is spread out on a 60-acre campus with more than 800 beds, state-of-the-art operating rooms and 3,400 employees (including physicians, researchers, nurses etc.)

Another example is the large Hospital serving the southern region of Israel, Soroka Medical Center located in the city Beersheba. The Soroka University Medical Center is a JCI (Joint Commission International) accredited medical facility and the largest employer in southern Israel with over 4,200 staff members, including 700 physicians and 1,500 nurses. This huge hospital is used to serving 188,000 patients a year, including 38,000 children providing all medical services available.

When looking into traveling abroad for medical care, one mustn’t discount any country until it checked the full scope of possibilities and services. Israel will be a very good choice as patients shouldn’t overlook it.

As medicine relies increasingly on mathematics, no clinician can afford to leave the statistical aspects of a paper to the “experts.” Many scholarly articles published in medical journals present findings in the form of numerical summaries, tables, and graphs. The goal of this presentation is to explain statistical terms which are frequently used in describing study’s design, statistical analysis, and presentation of the results. These include basic summary measures used to describe patient cohort, statistical hypothesis testing procedures and techniques used to establish the association between the outcome and certain patient’s characteristics. Recently published articles will be used to illustrate the usage, presentation, and interpretation of a broad range of statistical concepts.
