Eve A platform designed to enhance the pregnancy experience for expectant mothers
Expectant mothers are often overwhelmed by the abundance of information made available to them. Eve has been designed to serve as a single source of truth by providing evidence based content to expectant mothers in a form which is easy to navigate, always available and tailored to the mother’s pregnancy. The tablet based application provides users with access to a variety of tools to monitor the health and wellbeing of both mother and baby, and transmits this data back to the hospital midwives in real time via the Midwife Portal. Eve has recently been piloted at Cabrini Hospital with a high level of success.
This project was submitted to the Australian Biomedical Engineering Innovation Awards, winning 2nd prize. The ABEIA link is:http://www.abeia.com.au/#/pages/winners
Discussion - Transforming HealthcareÂ With Blockchain Technology
The Technology that underpins cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin has the potential to transform many aspects of healthcare including the way we capture, store and report on patient data, manage the hospital supply chain and operate clinical trials. Smart contracts in healthcare will enable further automation and will play a role in reducing administration expenditure. We’ll cover off the fundamentals of blockchain technology and explore some of the innovative use cases in health.
