    I wanted to let you know that I added this information to my “Beneath your hospital bed” post on my eleven year old project blog that describes new ideas to help patients. The project blog is at: http://duanewyatt.wordpress.com. Thanks, Duane Wyatt

    We know about the “massage recliners and chairs” that are now available. It is time for this technology to be applied to hospital beds.
    The same laptop computers that are used in the distraction therapy techniques described in my “Beyond your hospital bed” post on this project blog could be applied to this “massage therapy” use also. The hospital bed manufacturer personnel could convene a panel of physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, internists, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, exercise physiologists, biomedical engineers and software engineers.
    This panel of experts would design the optimum levels, duration and locations of tactile pressure depending upon the patients’ clinical diagnosis and physical and mental conditioning.
    The hardware and software would then be designed based upon this research. The laptop computers would control the sensors located in the hospital bed mattress which subsequently control the roller plates (or perhaps precise air pressure technology from “next generation” air mattress technology) in this mattress.

    Collaboration amongst groups is the key, as I hear you state multiple times. Continuing to push ahead of the curve even when you feel you’re there is he key to long term sustainability, and adaptability within an industry.. Phenomenal vision.

    Maybe next time they can just add a whole day spa, for both families and the patients. That why they can de-stress and maybe help with some holistic cures also. I mean it cant hurt.

    Quality Improvement is exactly what it’s about. There are so many ways to find better and not only better but simply different ways of innovating new technologies, therapies, eating plans, exercise, etc…

    As an owner of multiple medical massage therapy clinics I know we as a company and as a team work daily to make small improvements and to always keep an open mind to new and exciting possibilities.

    Good to hear someone talking about an integrated health care system. However, it should not be presumed that only diverse technology be taken into account.

    Sometimes it is good to get back to basics. In other words exercise and wellness sessions can be organised for patients in order to keep them healthy or help them to return to health.

    By setting up sessions run by athletics coaches who understand the value of fun and gentle encouragement rather than boot camp style – many participants can enjoy a healthy life with more vigour.

    How do I know? I have set up such session with medical practitioners and nutritionists and the like.

    So I repeat: please do not turn your back on tried and tested ways that work without the help of vast arrays of modern technology. Employ the best of every health and wellness avenue.

    Regards, Alex

    I find it refreshing to know that people in the medical industry are actually trying to help improve the process of health care delivery.

    I think with all the latest innovations in technology and software development, the health care community should have the best and easiest to use systems, because complicating the process it takes to administer help further hurts the person who needs the help.

    What the best is, I guess, could be considered subjective, but I think each facility should always be looking for better tools to administer health care including the computers used and the software on those computers.

    Of course it would not be efficient to change hardware and software every 3 months to keep up with current trends, because education is required to learn the new systems as well as some form of financial investment. But, it would not be unrealistic to expect a general review every year.

    And. . .

    I think we have to ask ourselves, “What creates the greater cost: using old outdated systems that don’t perform up to standards and leave patients vulnerable to error, or using a more efficient system that employs the latest technology that minimizes error?

    The cost of technology can never be compared to the cost of lost lives.

      I agree with your sentiment, having better and fast health care is what this country needs. Better healthcare not just only for Senior Citizens.

    The Transform Symposium really looks like it is going to be a winner. The Medical Field needs to stay creative and solution focused.

    Also, there is no better place to host this event than at the Mayo Clinic – bravo!

    Hospitals beds like the kind you mostly see in ICU rooms cost anywhere from 30-40 thousand, yet they are so uncomfortable it’s unbelievable.

    I have a lot of faith in the Mayo clinic because they really do have an array of top-notch physicians and surgeons, and often are included in America’s best physicians and surgeons lists.

    As a massage therapist who is passionate about health care and helping relieve human suffering (even a tiny bit)…I find this truly to be an inspiring video from Dr. Rosenman.

    It’s what one could expect coming out of Mayo!

    Love how he said, “…some of the greatest innovations in health care come from when people from one health discipline and people from another health discipline talk to each other.”

    My son is in chiropractic school currently at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, and I hear them talking a lot about the intermingling and collaboration of various alternative and allopathic modalities.

    The health care system certainly needs improving, the private sector are great at innovation and overcoming huge problems. Maybe the health care system could pick up a few ideas.

    It’s nice to see the Mayo clinic is aware of this and they’re moving in the right direction to improve the system.

    A multi-disciplinary approach is one thing that is really missing in healthcare, so it’s great to hear of David Rosenman talking about the advantages of working this way.

    Thank you Dr Rosenman, we really like the transformation that is happening in the health care industry. As a company that is concerned about its clients and ever looking into ways to improve the services we give to our clients, it is pleasing to hear about these changes. We also appreciate the fact that other therapies similar to what we offer become more recognised.

    Sounds like a great conference. I like what you said about enhancing wellness, that is really up my alley. It would be great to see more patient centered informatics to measure wellness. I will plan to attend next year.

    Appreciate the efforts of Mayo Clinic on Health care. Has the institute got some resources on tele-medicine? Any major researches happening on this? I am particularly interested in exploring possibilities under tele medicine.

    Thanks for the informative article.

    “As the climate in health care has changed, we are learning that we’re gonna have to change too”. This is something that is not often said by representatives of the health care sector. And in global meaning. It’s funny that no matter where you come from the health care problem seems to be exactly the same: Insufficient capital to guarantee people health care of at least good quality.

    Being in direct mail marketing in these economic times, there are a lot of changes that need to be made. The demand for better healthcare would be great. The healthcare industry also affects the direct mail marketing industry.

    Thanks for the food for thought. The future of health care in our country is going to be dependent on cooperation between disciplines and a “for the good of the patient” moto, as opposed to “for the good of my pocketbook”; which seems to be the norm today.

    Presently, innovations in health care needs improvement. It is good that someone like Dr. Rosenman has initiated a “transformation” movement that can totally enhance the health care system. I had been an avid follower of Mayo clinic through the years. I really hope that this “transformation” can soon take effect and improve delivery of health care to individuals.

    Health care is such an important and critical issue for everyone. Not only in the USA, but elsewhere like Australia. The entire system obviously needs fixing, but there’s too much talk, and not enough action. But it’s good to know someone is trying!

  • Thornhill

    Health care transformation is badly needed. Primary care practitioners are too reactionary and need to work with other industries to prevent problems before they arise, instead of mostly continuing down the road of reactive medicine.

    The clinic started as a single, small outpatient facility, and later became America’s first integrated group practice, a model that is now standard in the United States. However, Mayo Clinic integrates the practice of over 1,700 medical doctors, making it much larger than the typical group practice of 3 to 100 doctors.

    Improving healthcare to me boils down to two things. First we must eat better but this is a challenging tasks when there’s a fast food joint on every corner. Secondly we must exercise more and this has been increasingly different in the age of computers as we are more sedentary than ever. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

      There has been a major lack of communication between allopathic physicians and other professions outside that immediate sphere. I think there is a lot that we can learn from interdisciplinary communication.
