Surgical Automations

You're Not Crazy - If You Feel Your Workplace Is Toxic and Out To Get You.

This presentation will validate clinicians, especially those who hold intersectional and unique identities, experience harassment, discrimination, and retaliation in the U.S. workplace. The frequency of the abuse of power leveraged against talented high achieving clinicians is presently unknown because reporting abuse is fraught with reliving the primary trauma and is compounded by the harms incurred from institutional retaliation for reporting, often leading to job and/or career loss.

AnesthesiaGo: Smarter Daily Scheduling

Traditionally, anesthesiologists are assigned to cases the night before surgery by a senior anesthesiologist who is given a list of cases and a pencil/pen. This process usually takes about an hor and is often riddled with inefficiencies, double-bookings or undesired pairings. AnesthesiaGo was designed to disrupt the current process of making assignments. This software utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to automate this process and lessen the time it takes to produce a functional schedule.

Putting a Dent in Diabetes

The worldwide burden of diabetes is approaching half a billion people, making it the single greatest threat to humanity in this era. The root cause of metabolic disease in the majority of people can be attributed to our diet. We now have the tools to give people personalized, real-time insights into how different foods and lifestyle factors are interacting with their metabolism using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) analytics.

Ken Gordon, Co-founder & CEO, VALR VALR: non-invasive blood lactate monitoring for consumers

Consumer spend upwards of $10B per year on wearables for helping them train smarter, but nothing today delivers the critical need: accurately determining training zones! Life is unfair, the best training zones are barely perceptible experientially, and the worst ones are incredibly satisfying psychologically. VALR is deploying innovations in non-invasive blood lactate sensing into an integrated training suite, to help consumers actually get the benefit from their hard work, and love doing it.

How You Can Shape the Next Generation

Many medical students, when asked, stated that they would like to participate in medical education. However, only around 20% of the physician population is in academic medicine. The reasons are many but the solution is here. Now, any licensed physician can utilize our crowdsourced marketplace to easily post their site, earn CME, and generate revenue while contributing to the next generation of medical learners.

Food Allergy Toothpaste Mediated Oral Mucosal Immunotherapy - Landscape and Potential.

Oral mucosal immunotherapy (OMIT) for food allergies is Intrommune’s novel drug delivery platform. It is based on delivering therapeutic agents by embedding them in a fully functional toothpaste. Thus, allergic patients can conveniently administer their daily treatment at the same time they brush their teeth. OMIT is based on the principle of allergy immunotherapy or “desensitization,” a technique that allergists have used to treat the underlying cause of respiratory allergies for over 100 years. Allergy sufferers are exposed to tiny, carefully controlled amounts of the substance they are allergic to, like peanut or shellfish proteins. Over time, their immune system learns that the substance is safe and allergic reactions become milder. Intrommune’s OMIT platform is intended to reduce the burden and anxiety experienced by food-allergic individuals and their families. OMIT leverages the unique ability of the lining of the mouth to retrain the immune system (sometimes referred to as “desensitization”) and thus reduce allergic reactions to foods like peanuts over time. Daily use of OMIT toothpaste gradually increases the threshold of allergen that would normally trigger food allergy symptoms – to the point where an allergic person is protected against accidental ingestion of these foods. Research suggests that long-term, daily maintenance therapy is necessary to achieve and maintain this protection. Intrommune’s great-tasting, cavity-fighting OMIT toothpaste makes that easy to do.

Scaling behavioral healthcare with remote patient monitoring devices

Lief Therapeutics shares a novel wearable medical device that tracks and improves a key biomarker of mental health. In a world where providing behavioral healthcare at scale is often challenging due to provider shortages, lack of adequate reimbursement and no quantitative biomarkers to assess disease progression, Lief has innovated a new class of mental health-focused remote patient monitoring device to market.

Effecting Communication, Reducing Sedation and Delirium for Intubated Patients with VidaTalk.

Critically ill, mechanically ventilated (MV) patients, when not provided an effective means to communicate, suffer from anxiety, unrecognized and untreated pain and other symptoms, being unaware of what is happening as well as having a lack of knowledge of their own progress. Providers who substitute communication for sedation propagate a healthcare crisis with skyrocketing delirium rates which weigh more heavily on the most vulnerable patient populations (e.g., older adults, critically ill.

Why is the opioid crisis going on 22 years

The opioid crisis is a symptom of the mental health crisis that we have not addressed well. Have you locked up your opioids today. 1 of 4 opioid overdose involves children & teens. The problem today is uncontrolled access to controlled substances. In hospitals and pharmacies, opioids are locked in a secure location. Patients take these same opioids home and store them in an unsecured medicine cabinet where anyone can have access to them. 73% of teens get started on opioids by raiding the med.
