Part 1: IBM's research labs are like a candy shop for technologists. In Part 1 of this 2-part series, we take a look at Artemis and Blue Spruce, tools used for healthcare analytics and real-time collaboration.
Fantastic applications and continued leadership by IBM to develop technology solutions.
I agree, danish.sultan, with your assessment. The only additional comment I would make about the physician use, is that as I see the application in an ICU, the physician would actually be supported by nurses and technicians that are currently reading the monitors. This would give more tools to them to alert the doctors proactively with changes in condition.
Thank for sharing this information. The Blue Spruce idea is very appealing. Although there are some other solutions of the same kind already in the market but IBM has come up with some really innovative additions. It is interesting to see options like adding on-the-fly comments and pointers (as he did on the x-ray).
For Artemis, I would say, while it looks promising and a step ahead, I am not sure if it is user-friendly enough to be adapted very easily. We cannot expect medical staff and doctors to be that much technologically minded to make great use of a system like this. That means there is plenty of room for improvement as far as usability is concerned.
