Healthtech’s most popular tweets in Q3 2021: Top Five

1. Christopher Longhurst tweets on New York to expand the digital vaccine platform Excelsior Pass

Christopher Longhurst, chief medical officer and chief digital officer of UC San Diego Health, shared an article about New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to launch Excelsior Pass Plus, an expansion of the digital vaccine platform Excelsior Pass. Launched in March 2021, the platform provides a digital version of a Covid-19 vaccine or a negative test result through the SMART Health Cards Framework developed by the international consortium called the VCI.

The article highlighted that the expanded Excelsior Pass Plus platform will enable New Yorkers to securely view their vaccination details while traveling interstate and international. Furthermore, the SMART Health Cards Framework enables the uploading of vaccination details to the VeriFLY platform and US Airways travel to various countries including Greece, France, Spain and Germany. Longhurst noted that the launch of the expanded platform signals the emergence of a national standard for digital vaccines.

2. Glenn Gilmore’s tweet about a drone ambulance that could save lives

Glenn Gilmore, director of digital marketing and consulting firm Gilmore Business Network, shared a video of a drone ambulance that could save lives by increasing emergency response times. Designed by Argodesign, the drone has the ability to fly and land anywhere. It was developed to deal with slow emergency response times that result in the loss of approximately 1,000 lives per year.

The drone is about the size of a small car and can accommodate a passenger and an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). The patient will be stabilized by EMT before being taken to hospital by drone. The ambulance drone design is more expensive than a conventional ambulance, but less expensive than medical helicopters, according to the video.

3. Brian Aher’s tweet about how AI is changing healthcare

Brian Aher, chief health IT engineer at technology company MITER, shared an article about how artificial intelligence is transforming healthcare in the future. This technology can be integrated into wearable devices and health monitoring sensors, increasing the efficiency and accuracy of ultrasound diagnostics, medical imaging, and cancer diagnosis and treatment.

For example, the health monitoring wearable Oura Ring has collaborated with the Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute to create an AI-powered model that can detect symptoms in people even before they have the flu. The first study using the model revealed that Oura’s ring detected common Covid-19 symptoms three days ago with 90% accuracy using light-emitting diodes (LEDs), accelerometers, gyroscopes and body temperature sensors.

Likewise, AI can be deployed in diagnostics to improve accuracy. For example, medical device startup Exo has developed a diagnostic that combines ultrasound and artificial intelligence to improve imaging in patients. The instrument is equipped with sensors and nanotechnology, which is used to visualize any area of ​​the body and convert it into a 3D image that enables doctors to use ultrasound in real time.

4. Ian Weissman tweets a 3D-printed vaccine patch developed by scientists

Ian Weissman, a radiologist at Milwaukee Veterans Affairs Medical Center, shared an article on a 3D-printed vaccine patch developed by scientists from Stanford University and the University of North Carolina. The vaccine patch is made of polymer and measures 1 cm in length2 in size. Includes 100 3D-printed microneedles, 700 µm in length. The needles can pierce the skin and inject the vaccine.

When the patch was tested on mice, it generated an immune response 20 times greater than a conventional intradermal vaccination. The researchers reported that the patch could address the need for easy and painless intradermal vaccinations. It can also help reduce vaccine frequency for people with needle phobia. Micro-needles can also tackle manufacturing challenges as they can be 3D printed and customized for different conditions including influenza, measles and Covid-19.

Rasu Shrestha, chief strategy and transformation officer and executive vice president of healthcare company Atrium Health, has shared an article about digital health provider Xealth securing $24 million in a Series B funding round to improve its digital health offering. Funding was led by Advocate Aurora Enterprises, a not-for-profit healthcare system, and included participation from health systems such as Banner Health, ChristianaCare, Cone Health, Memorial Hermann, and Nebraska Medicine.

The new funding round brings the total funding that Xealth has raised so far to $52.6 million. The Xealth platform is available to more than 10,000 physicians who can include digital health tools in their workflows that can also be integrated with electronic health records (EHRs). It provides a 50%-80% reduction in integration and deployment costs, while improving patient interaction with digital assets. The platform also allows patients to register in health programs and share information with care providers through electronic health records.
