AI leads as Pharmaceutical Technology lists five of the most popular healthcare tweets in the first quarter of 2022, based on data from GlobalData’s healthcare impact platform.

The best tweets are based on the total commitments (likes and retweets) received from tweets from more than 150 health technology experts tracked by GlobalData’s Healthcare Influencer platform in the first quarter (Q1) of 2022.

1. Eric Topol’s tweet about the applications of AI in healthcare and medicine

Eric Topol, founder and director of the Translational Institute Scripps Research, shared an article on how AI can be applied in healthcare and medicine. The article shares findings from a biennial review of the development of medical AI, including studies aimed at demonstrating the usefulness of medical AI systems. The use of AI tools in medical practice is currently low, despite several studies showing their effectiveness.

The effectiveness of AI systems in healthcare has been tested in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that include settings in which people receive help from AI to verify the accuracy of technology and other indicators. Studies show that the help of AI helps to improve the sensitivity of clinical experts, although their specificity is reduced. In addition, the help of AI has benefited less experienced clinicians than experienced clinicians.

Technical aspects such as the accuracy of AI play a key role in determining the usefulness of the technology in clinical settings, the article notes. Incorrect predictions, for example, can interfere with clinical presentation, although correct predictions are helpful. In addition, the use of AI medical systems faces a number of challenges, including consumer confidence, high cost and regulatory issues. Artificial intelligence systems used for image analysis, for example, require additional equipment to capture images on entire slides, which is often not available in health systems. In addition, regulatory issues such as accuracy, ethical data use, and bias also influence the implementation of AI in health and clinical settings.

2. Brennan Spiegel’s tweet on the IBS / VR virtual clinic program developed by Cedars-Sinai

Brennan Spiegel, director of health research at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, shared an article about the nonprofit health organization that is developing the Virtual Irritable Bowel Syndrome Clinic (IBS / VR). The new VR program is aimed at strengthening the cerebrospinal fluid axis of patients and improving their quality of life. IBS patients can use the virtual clinic to learn and practice IBS behavioral methods from the comfort of their own homes.

The virtual clinic includes various areas where patients can navigate to learn about IBS, such as an examination room, a relaxation room, a reduction room, a pain relief room and a trophy room. The emergency care area, for example, can help patients with acute IBS symptoms, while the skills center can support long-term management of IBS by improving cognitive behaviors and learning new approaches. IBS / VR is currently being tested with patients with IBS, the article points out.

3. Daniel Kraft’s tweet about eHealth wireless patches developed at the University of Osaka

Daniel Kraft, president of the XPRIZE Pandemic & Health Alliance, an alliance created to develop solutions for Covid-19, shared an article about researchers at Osaka University in Japan who are developing a wireless patch for eHealth that does not require recharging. The ultra-thin patch monitors heart rate and other vital signs and can help doctors monitor the health of their patients on a regular basis.

The patches contain a ferroelectric substance that can be powered by converting natural movements into small electric charges through the piezoelectric effect. Researchers claim that the patches can generate up to 200 millijoules each day from normal movement if placed on a joint such as the knees or elbows, thus providing enough power to regularly monitor a patient’s cardiovascular variables.

The patches are almost invisible due to their thin material, which makes daily health monitoring less intrusive and inconvenient. The data collected from the patches can be monitored using a smartphone or computer, the article points out.

4. John Nosta’s tweet about the need for further innovation in telemedicine

John Nosta, president of the NostaLab Health Trust, shared an article on the need to transform telemedicine into a more advanced and transformative technology. Telemedicine has the potential to serve as a tool for ongoing and ongoing commitment that physicians can use to improve care, rather than simply providing an alternative to office visits. Telemedicine visits can be made more interactive and productive for both the patient and the doctor by combining available technologies with consumer education, the article says in detail.

Real-time patient data and analysis, for example, can be integrated with other digital health solutions currently available to provide a unique and relevant view of their daily lives. The article details that the general public now has access to medical services and instruments that were previously available only to physicians through a number of accurate and inexpensive consumer technologies, such as the electrocardiogram (ECG) test. According to the article, patients and physicians will need to incorporate these innovations to develop long-term modalities.

5. Glen Gilmore’s tweet on the Metaverse platform, which makes healthcare more accessible

Glenn Gilmore, director of consulting and digital marketing firm Gilmore Business Network, shared an article on how the Metaverse platform can make healthcare more accessible and effective. Telecommunications company AT&T stressed that augmented reality (AR) and VR technologies can help with medical training for complex procedures. Technology can help learners acquire the skills they need by creating low-risk virtual learning settings that allow them to succeed in practical use without putting patients at risk.

In addition, AI is used by healthcare providers to quickly diagnose and analyze medical problems, supporting effective identification, preventive care, and potential treatments. The technology is expected to provide new wellness opportunities for Metaverse users and healthcare professionals through consumer consent, the article said.
