Agreed- a very nice read. - Dr. David E. 5 months ago

Yes, I agree with the thoughts shared in that article. In-fact visualization is a common building block for any responsive IT system. So in addition to Blockchain, AI and Visualization. I would also like to add IoT, which is going to be an important component for a holistic healthcare solution.

Any update on BC aggregators, writers and miners, speed, real security and accuracy, etc? This is vital in healthcare.

For example, the CC companies can transact hundreds-of-thousands of financial interactions per second; while my BC health miners tell me their EHRmax is 20-30. This just won't do in healthcare.

Now, I mean healthcare and not bitcoin transactions.

For example: The blockchain platform EOS has broken two major records in terms of transaction processing speed in the last 24 hours, first beating all other major crypto currencies at 2,822 transactions per second, then crossing the 3k transactions per second mark. This is very good news, but still not up to par for medicine.

Any thoughts?

the only news I got is that test results show a significant difference in actual performance versus reported performance. Timicoin is another interesting solution, it uses blockchain technology for storing and accessing medical records - Paolo 6 months ago
But, not interoperable!- - Dr. David E. 5 months ago

Totally agreed. Health care services will completely modified and restructure by the incooperation of AI, block chain and visualization. The service quality provided by the provider will be significantly different from today where even though health care could provide better time to diagnosis, optimum treatment and solution but the quality of patient contact, the objective of health care will drastically changes. Taking Health care Insurance as an example, they would be benefit from the Advent of technology where they would request more screen for their buyer and increase the premium one pays if the buyer have associated risk( which does not really translated that he or she will suffer from the disease). Hence the benefits would slightly tilt towards the insurance provider which defeated the real purpose of one buying a health insurance.

And as a result new providers are popping up. Not all the old ones are able to implement solutions including AI then they try to reach out to these startups. Implement AI is both time consuming and expensive as the right skills are needed - Paolo 6 months ago
Do you really want HI by a "NEW provider? - Dr. David E. 5 months ago

A.I. Everywhere AND Still Wrong!

DOJ Recovers Over $2.8 Billion in False Claims Act Cases in 2018

On December 21, 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced their recovery of more than $2.8 billion in settlements and judgments from civil cases involving fraud and false claims for fiscal year (FY) 2018. While 2018 marks the ninth consecutive year in which healthcare fraud settlements exceeded $2 billion, this year’s amount was the lowest recovery since 2009. Approximately $2.5 billion was recouped from the healthcare industry for federal losses alone, and included recoveries from drug and medical device companies, managed care providers, hospitals, pharmacies, hospice organizations, laboratories, and physicians. This figure, over 87% of the total recovery amount, far outstripped the $107.5 million recovered from defense contractor companies and the $259.6 million obtained from other industries such as banking.
