Hospital / Clinic Communication Challenge

Symptom identification tool

creating a clear identifier of what the information is about and who it is applicable to. On many food menus there is a key informing the diner whether the food is vegan, gluten free, etc. To be able to target information best, and to not waste people's time reading information that is irrelevant to them, especially when time is precious, a nationwide / global key will indicate clearly what the information is. For example,... more »

Centralizing non-frontline resources

hospitals pooling certain non-frontline resources (back office) within a local area. By not duplicating these resources, hospitals can free up resources. For example, a group of hospitals can release joint statements ie use one press department to communicate with external media and another could be responsible for internal communications, HR - perhaps if one hospital is short of receptionists, cleaners, etc, another... more »

Public communication on talk shows

I don't think that communication between hospitals and clinics is necessary because those are the same doctors workings in hospitals and clinics during different hours of the day but when it comes to communicate with public, what I think is, weekly talk shows onaired live with live calls. so that people can talk with doctors in live programs. Weekly health talk plus doctors speak truely about the issue is sufficient and... more »

Symptom stickers

What if all people were sent “symptom stickers.” Color coordinated dot stickers that anyone going to a medical facility would wear that health Proffesionals would be able to immediately identify what was going on with each patient. Ie. red= fever blue=respiratory issues.....People would simply put the stickers on their wristband or simply their shirt (in a visible spot). Why would this help?? Well if someone doesn’t need... more »

Speed of information and education of public

So we have a couple things we'd need to solve: speed of information, education of the public and efficient data transfer. To address the speed of information in an industry that is historically slow to adopt digital, I'd suggest a platform similar to Twitter, but limited in nature. Invite only application to health care professionals, separated or with filtering options by field, industry, location or interest, with only... more »

A number of ideas

Let me discuss pointwise- * At initial every country should educate, their citizen and improve communication between them. Let's take an example- Italy/ USA, both come first in medical facilities, then also many people died. Why? The reason is they are prepared for the normal days, not for the worst times like today. Lack of medical equipment and bed. And due to that, they can't check 100% of its population. Instead of... more »

Status.io page for hospitals and clinics

a status.io page for hospitals and clinics to share the current status of different departments/areas of the hospital. Must be easily updatable by point people at the locations and be a crucial part of the web presence for that location. It can give green/yellow/red indicators about what's going on in different areas/functions of the hospital with some details about why they're in the different statuses. Data could be... more »

Machine learning to solve problems and find the source

by understanding the source of the problem and having clear outcomes, with the assistance of machine learning. In terms of the problem, large centralised databases present significant legal and ethical challenges in terms of patient privacy. Yet the data and knowledge contained in localised database systems are a wealth of information to international agencies and other healthcare centers, and not sharing such information... more »

Network of hospitals

This can be improved by creating a network of hospitals, especially those in areas with a greater volume of patients infected with COVID, to share best practices on how they are triaging and treating patients while minimizing exposure to healthcare providers and also minimizing exposure to patients not infected with COVID.

Reschedule elective surgeries

Creating a system that allows the ease of rescheduling elective surgeries or routine health appointments in order to free up much-needed resources at hospitals during times of medical crises. Hospitals will indicate if they need to free up beds/doctors, and through negotiated agreements with insurance companies, incentives can be given to patients who do decide to reschedule their routine appointments.

Emergency communication network

implementing a two-fold emergency communication network/service for use by medical facilities and practitioners. Not unlike the use of specific channels on radios used by first responders, medical facilities and practitioners could be provided with a secure, emergency network/platform where properly redacted information can be reliably shared during times of need - away from the congestion felt by common platforms such... more »
