So a brilliant idea came to mind and I wish Google would use it! Not sure if others thought of it, possible, but hey: “Great Minds Think Alike!”

Why doesn’t Google (or any other providers for that matter) integrate with your mobile phone and phone book and if poeple call you, you can setup automatic email responses to them (granted you have an email of theirs on file). Ahhh! and voice-mails on your phone … NOW that would be sweet.

Come on Android! Come on Google

An interesting article and report! This is how information technology is helping transform healthcare systems: http://goo.gl/hYpr6. “The report was the result of three meetings held in the summer and fall of 2010, bringing together researchers, computer scientists, privacy experts, clinicians, healthcare administrators, health IT professionals, representatives of patient advocacy groups, healthcare policymakers, and other stakeholders.”

The goal is to bring about the “emergence of a digital infrastructure that allows data collected during activities in various settings — clinical, research, and public health — to be integrated, analyzed, and broadly applied (‘collect once, use for multiple purposes’) to inform and improve clinical care decisions, promote patient education and self-management, design public health strategies, and support research and knowledge development efforts in a timely manner.” – Anthony Guerra, InformationWeek

My friend, AWT, has pointed this out and Nakoolt has actually tried it! Way to go Google. This is pretty cool! Looking forward to more and more applications and life problems that Google Goggles will solve

I think Google have made the right call on naming this device the Nexus S 🙂 S for Super perhaps!

The phone is loaded with features that you can check out for yourself here (http://www.google.com/nexus/#/features) but once and for all, this marks the first phone with MEGA internal storage 🙂

The one thing I think this device will lack is the “quietly brilliant” HTC sense UI 😦 Excited for it nonetheless and Can’t wait to get Gingerbread on all other Android Devices!

I’ve tried to look it up on the bestBuy website, but I was blocked from my Kuwaiti IP address!! WTH. Anyways, if there’s a will, there’s a way and via using a U.S. based proxy service (CoDeen Network) I managed to get a peak.

It’s being sold at $199.99* with a 2-year contract with T-Mobile, but can also be purchased unlocked with no strings attached for $529.99.

iPhone, you’ve been warned!

An article my big boss at work wrote about how information technology and eLearning are shaping the future of medicine and healthcare.

“The first ten years of this century has seen dramatic changes in the approachto healthcare brought about largely by the introduction of technology”

Medic Mobile is out! I gotta say that I’m loving this great tool and platform and can definitely see the potential for it in rural and developing parts of the world. I would love to get my hands on a project to implement this. Here’s is what the development team has to say about it:

“Our approach is about tools that can be appropriated and adapted by health workers all over the globe, many of whom have little support from professional IT staff.

Mobile phones play an increasingly integral role in daily life in the developing world and some of our greatest global health challenges can be addressed through connectivity. Medic is seizing this opportunity by developing software, hardware, implementation strategies and impact analysis in mobile health.

The same team of FrontlineSMS with the same open source tools, have re-branded FrontlineSMS:Medic in their unique approach to mHealth.

Oh and it gets even better with providing a simple interface for an EHR, and it’s called PatientView

Big Shoutout to the team! You all are AWESOME 🙂

Dedicated to my “Dingee” friends! I think this is the trend moving forward and it seems a very interesting one when it comes to healthcare and delivering/sharing of health information.
