Digital Healthcare Software - Marathon or Sprint(s)?

Digital Healthcare (software) applications are complex and delivery (MVP and surely Product), from inception to deployment, can be a long process, Marathon period if you will. But surely no one wants to run a Marathon length and find out he did not reach the finish line. One would prefer identifying distance signs (5km, 10km…) along the way (Sprints if you will), and not only that but also verifying on time, on plan and if he still feels his feet. So what would be the equivalent in execution of a digital healthcare software development? What would help you run well and toward the finish line (delivery)? And last but not least – how to do that under medical regulation? Moshe will take you through such journey, based on his experience (mostly successful but sometimes not and then you learn the most) of almost 100 such projects.

Challenges Facing Digital Health Startups: How the IIA Incubator Program Can Help

Israeli startups face even more challenges that startups in major markets like the US. Often far from their target market, it can be even more difficult to assess product-market fit, reach out to potential customers and partners, and to get funding. Working with an incubator in the Israel Innovation Authority program can help Israeli startups overcome a lot of these hurdles.

AI For Anomaly Detection in Medical Applications

Medical errors are among the leading cause of death. Continuous monitoring of drug prescriptions and administrations by means of AI algorithms can significantly improve patients' safety and all subsequent complications. Since they are rare by nature, medical errors can be treated as anomalies, and both machine learning and statistical methods can be applied to detect and alert on such errors. In this talk, we will give an overview of the detection and alerting framework we are developing to monitor possibly erroneous drugs' administrations in medical infusions pumps.
 

BIO:
Dr. Amjad Abu-Rmileh - Chief Data Scientist (CDS) - holds a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and Control Theory. During his Ph.D. research, he developed novel modeling and control approaches for the ‘artificial pancreas’ used to regulate blood glucose in diabetic patients and implemented them in preclinical trials. The results of the studies were published in highly ranked scientific journals. 
Dr. Abu-Rmileh was a postdoc researcher in machine learning and computational neuroscience at Ben-Gurion University, where he focused on the design of novel ‘co-adaptive’ brain-computer interface systems and studying the interaction between the human brain and machine learning algorithms. He also worked on new signal processing approaches for brain activity decoding during sleep, flight, epilepsy, and movement. 
Previously, Dr. Abu-Rmileh worked for Microsoft as a machine learning researcher and data scientist in the research group within the recommendation team, where he worked on different machine learning algorithms, recommendation systems, and deep learning architectures to provide personalized recommendations in ‘Windows Store’ and ‘Xbox’.

Technologies For Aging Well

Our society is facing two significant challenges that require attention and preparation. One being a significant increase in the elderly population in general and especially in the elderly over the age of 80. This trend is expected to affect the family and social structure as well as the social, financial and health services consumption layout; And the other, is the affect advances in computing and information technology have on all the aspects of our life - including on the health services ,home health care and home hospitalization.
Undoubtedly, covid 19 accelerated the assimilation of technologies within health systems and care services for older adults, but implantation of these technologies raises a number of challenges:
1. Should we choose active or passive technologies? To whom and when each one fits? How should we as services providers address the digital gap? 
3. Telemonitoring devices can capture vital signs, weight, or symptoms and report them to a remote provider- but can it monitor psychological signs? 
4. Is the technology really reduces the number of face-to-face interface/ visits, or because communication is available the number of referrals increases

 

BIO:
Currently CEO of Mediterranean Towers Ventures, a corporate venture capital program that invests in early-stage technology companies developing disruptive solutions for aging – the fastest growing population segment around the world.

Founding a Medical Device Innovation Hub Within a Hospital

Who is better qualified to identify unmet clinical needs than the clinicians themselves? The medical device industry is dependent upon the detection of these important needs, and the translation of these problems into solutions. In this presentation, Dr. Perl will share his experience of how he is translating the Biodesign method, taught at an American Ivy-League school, to the real world of a large public hospital in Israel. He will try to convince you that innovation starts at the patient bedside and must always be (physically) close to the ward, even if some of these innovative ideas are better left behind...
