Digital Scribes

Posted on: Thursday, December 14, 2017

Stanford Medicine recently has announced that it is working with Google Research on a “digital-scribe.” Traditionally, a medical scribe is a person who specializes in charting physician-patient encounters in real time, such as during medical examinations.

A digital-scribe could save physician time, lessening the need to enter data. It could also improve the visit for patients, who would again have the full attention of their physician. Doctors will wear a microphone and record the visit. Researchers will then use machine learning algorithms to detect patterns from the audio recordings that can be used to automatically complete a progress note, which is the primary electronic health records document that describes the office visit. Progress notes include everything from vital signs and symptoms to a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Alexa and Healthcare Technology

Posted on: Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Recently, healthcare content provider WebMD and Amazon announced a technology and marketing program that enables users of Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Amazon Fire TV to access WebMD’s library of healthcare content, and get answers to questions about conditions, treatments, drugs and other topics such as symptoms. Those answers also can be sent to a user via an Alexa app.
 

Voice-activated tools have the potential to become a major way patients deal with doctors and hospitals. They could become a common way for patients to schedule appointments, access and update personal medical records, and refill prescriptions. They can also be used to help providers more closely monitor patients at home such as by voice activation tools being used for medication reminders.

It will be interesting to learn in the coming years how these new technologies will aid medical professionals and patients alike.

MEA Glaucoma Surgeons Now Offering XEN Stent Surgery

Posted on: Thursday, December 07, 2017

Recently approved by the FDA and now covered by Medicare, the XEN is a tiny gelatin tube inserted through the wall of the eye to drain fluid and reduce the eye pressure. It is indicated for almost any type of glaucoma and can be done as a separate procedure or combined with cataract surgery. Once medical and laser glaucoma treatments fail to control glaucoma, we as glaucoma surgeons recommend surgery to lower the eye pressure. For patients with earlier stage glaucoma, minimally invasive surgical procedures in the angle of the eye, usually combined with cataract surgery, may be sufficient to control their disease. But for those with more severe or advanced disease, a much more invasive and riskier procedure such as trabeculectomy is indicated.

XEN is the first glaucoma device that may offer similarly high effectiveness with less risk. It is a minimally invasive procedure, it usually takes only several minutes to perform, and the recovery is much quicker than with standard glaucoma surgery, such as trabeculectomy.

In my opinion, the XEN gel stent is an excellent option for patients with more advanced stages of glaucoma. We are learning quickly from our own experiences and from our glaucoma colleagues around the country on how this procedure can benefit patients. I believe it will greatly reduce the need for us to perform more invasive trabeculectomy and tube shunt procedures.
