Excellent telehealth video: Hebrides Telehealth

16 minutes
“It would be a step backwards to work without telehealth now” says one of the nurses in this excellent overview of telehealth as it implemented now, in the Hebrides islands off the north west coast of Scotland. (Also has a passing reference to telehealth in Sheffield – not in the Hebrides) Nice work by the video’s maker, Ged Yeates.

Video: Take healthcare off the mainframe Eric Dishman (Intel)

17 minutes

Eric Dishman gave an impassioned presentation at TEDMED in November 2009 but the video has just been released. He focuses on the need to bring much of healthcare out of the hospital and into the home by illustrating the research that Intel has been doing for the past 10 years. The video is an informative – and possibly inspiring – 16 minutes, after which you might want to go to the TEDMED site and scroll down to read the comments. Some are pertinent, some miss the point and at least one is decidedly cranky. They are a useful reminder of what we are up against.

The Innovator’s Prescription (video)

Essentially the same presentation as his week-earlier keynote at last October’s Connected Health Symposium (see this editor’s report here), but you can now see this important presentation for yourself:  from ePatient Connections, Jason Hwang, M.D. on disruptive innovations in healthcare decentralizing care, and the historical futility of cramming new technology into old business models.  Dr. Hwang is Executive Director of the Innosight Institute and co-author of The Innovator’s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care, with Professor Clayton M. Christensen and the late Jerome H. Grossman.  Thanks to Paul Sonnier of CommNexus (San Diego) for bringing this to our attention (and Kru Research for posting on their site).
