Japan’s Healthcare Innovation Goes Hand-In-Hand With Quality Of Life

Japan’s Healthcare Innovation Goes Hand-In-Hand With Quality Of Life

Faced with the most elderly population in the world, Japan is applying its technological know-how to coping with the problems that arise from this social phenomenon, particularly in the area of healthcare. Technology is helping to make life as long as possible, but the value of life isn’t just a question of how long people can live. Quality of life is equally important and Japanese technology is making great strides in this area as well. The award-winning Syrinx is a wearable electrolarynx that gives a voice to people who have lost theirs through illness, while optical examination device imo opens up new possibilities in diagnosing glaucoma and other eye diseases. Giving People Their Voice Back As a scientist specializing in electricity engineering, University of Tokyo graduate student Takeuchi Masaki is well aware of how technology can contribute to the modern world. But with a deep interest in social welfare, he also recognizes the importance of applying his knowledge to improving people’s lives. “In order to actually meet people who have lost their voices, in the summer of 2019 I visited an organization called Ginreikai in Tokyo,” Takeuchi says of the group that helps people who have lost their voice. Many people who have lost their voice use an electrolarynx to communicate. This is a vibrating, stick-like device that users have to hold near their throat. In combination with movements of the tongue and mouth, the electrolarynx echoes through the mouth to produce actual words. In this way, these people can communicate, but the downside is they have to hold the “stick” to their throats and the voice that is emitted is very robotic.

Six Customer Experience Lessons Businesses Can Learn From The Healthcare Industry

Six Customer Experience Lessons Businesses Can Learn From The Healthcare Industry

As I research and study different industries, I’m often surprised at how strategies in one industry can be identical in another. I recently participated in a Twitter “tweet chat” with VisitPay, a company that is creating an improved patient experience with better finance and payment solutions for the healthcare industry. The chat included 10 questions. If the questions didn’t include the word healthcare in them, most of them could have been appropriate for just about any industry. So, let’s dive into a few of the answers and comments and learn what we can from the way healthcare manages the customer—make that patient—experience. Healthcare is competitive, just like any other business. Healthcare professionals have learned the importance of delivering an excellent patient experience. Their future business depends on it. While nobody wants to go to the hospital or visit a doctor because they are sick or need a procedure, the choices patients make are for competitive reasons. Why do they prefer one hospital over another, or one doctor over another? It’s for the same reasons why someone prefers one automobile manufacturer over another. Or one retail store over another. Typically, there are competitive reasons that have to do with quality, service and experience. What follows are some of the main concepts from the tweet chat: 1. The product must work: Doctors or medical centers must do what they are supposed to do, which is to make people well. That’s a given. It’s like buying a car. You expect it to start when you put the key into the ignition.
