Shifting advanced medical care from hospital to home

Shifting advanced medical care from hospital to home
Healthcare is evolving and even where clinical care is delivered is changing. Fifty years ago, patients stayed in the hospital for weeks after an appendectomy. Today they go home the same or the next day. Some patients nowadays stay due to common problems: for DVT prophylaxis after surgery, for physical therapy, for antibiotics and serial CBCs to monitor the progress of infection, and so on. But as technology evolves, some of these clinical tasks could be done at home.

Understanding medical conversations with Google's deep learning tech

Good documentation helps create good clinical care by communicating a doctor's thinking, their concerns, and their plans to the rest of the team. Unfortunately, physicians routinely spend more time doing documentation than doing what they love most — caring for patients. Doctors often spend ~6 hours in an 11-hour workday in the Electronic Health Records (EHR) on documentation. Consequently, one study found that more than half of surveyed doctors report at least one symptom of burnout.
