“Unnamed Sources” Hit Healthcare

Asian equities were largely off on lower volumes ahead of the Fed announcement today though Japan, Taiwan and Korea managed small gains. Investors will wait for guidance from the Fed on its tapering pace. Hong Kong, and to a lesser degree China, was hit with negative political news. The US Commerce Department is expected to update its export technology ban list on Thursday with several private companies being added, such as drone maker DJI. The Financial Times reported, according to “people familiar with the pending action,” that the updated list will include biotech companies, sending the Hong Kong healthcare sector down -11% and China healthcare -2.92%. If this article proves false the companies should sue the Financial Times in my opinion. Wuxi Biologics (2269 HK) lost -19.24% on the “news”. Wuxi is a great company that employs people globally including in the United States. Hong Kong internet stocks were off on the negative sentiment.

How Automation Is Transforming Healthcare Jobs

All jobs are vulnerable to some degree of automation, including those in healthcare. The specter of automation delivers a quick stab of panic for many as they imagine their future. The Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter described this process as creative destruction. Automation captures two sides of a single coin: promise and threat. History teaches us that technological advancement produces more opportunity than it eliminates. But tell that to the switchboard operator or gas station attendant. Replaceable You "Not me — not my job," you say? Well, yes, many people believe that their job is not on the proverbial chopping block. The list of reasons is long: You’ve got extensive training. You have a list of degrees behind your name. You're creative. You're smart. You work in a booming industry. You're an essential worker, for crying out loud! But the data wizards from McKinsey tell a different story: Half of our current work is subject to automation using the technologies we now have. And this means a wholesale transformation of the workplace is well on its way.

AI May Cure The Ills In Healthcare Tech

As our healthcare system struggles toward a model in which consumers are at the center of the equation, technology is playing a rapidly increasing role in smoothing their way through the ecosystem. Consumers are demanding a better healthcare experience, but there’s a massive collision coming between the exabytes of global health data and consumer health and insurance illiteracy. “Interoperability” describes a set of American regulatory initiatives that are in play right now and will drive change in the industry for years to come. As president of a healthcare technology company, I believe them to be as significant as any changes to the system made in this century, including the introduction of HIPAA privacy regulations and the Affordable Care Act.

120 GP practices deploy X-on telephony tools

Practices across Stockport and North Central London CCG have deployed X-on’s telephony solution, Surgery Connect. The company has announced the completion of the two deployments, spanning 120 GP practices across the areas, delivering its cloud-based system. It means practices can access multiple telephone lines, manage call queues, report on trends and call volumes, tailor messages, and utilise call centre support during busy periods. X-on now cites an estimated 11.2 million patients are served by 1,170 practices in England and Wales using its tools. Hardip Kahlon, Senior Programme Manager at North Central London CCG, said: “The technology has made day-to-day practice management easier, and also for doctors when they want to dial out to contact a patient as they no longer have to work around a limited number of phone lines. Patients are benefiting too as they no longer experience an engaged line when trying to book a call at a busy time for the practice, but can retain their place in the queue by getting a call back for an appointment.” Paul Bensley, Chief Executive Officer at X-on, added: “In the last twenty months primary care has faced its own particular challenges in meeting the healthcare needs of patients, requiring it to be highly adaptable and versatile. “Implementing a cloud-based telephony system that draws on innovative, contemporary technology is an essential component in providing a modern, flexible, multi-function platform that enables patients and practices to communicate quickly and effortlessly.” In August, HTN welcomed X-on for our first Digital Primary Care conference. The company held a session to discuss how to support GP surgeries with call demand. The talk focused on how cloud telephony can support primary care providers with managing call demand, as well as remote consultations and other services. You can watch the session back here.
