Innovate to save lives and improve well-being

The possibility of accessing medical care from your mobile phone at any time and in any place is possible through several projects such as GoDoctor. Matija MassottI am convinced that to start a business you have to think about Argentina as a trick game, a popular Argentine game. And so, disruption comes from considering the cards you have and how to play them. He envisions a world where we don’t have to treat diseases, but rather technology detects them before they occur and we can prevent them. To do this, you need to collect information and have an easy-to-use platform for everyone involved.

How to integrate policies and public, private, non-profit entities and persons without legal identity in order to find improvements for health? Alexandra Garcia, Deputy Director of Innovation at the National Center for Health Information Systems (CENS) in Chile, inspires by explaining the design of her organization to make this happen. And of course it is possible; this is demonstrated by the success stories emerging from CENS.

Without leaving CENS and dealing with the case of Lumi in Entre Ríos, led by Santiago Romero Ayala among others, who take care of people so they can do their jobs cleaning all that “bug” – I dare say it that way because I am not a doctor – when entering the workplace.

Sometimes these “bugs” are not biological, they are circumstances that create stress, that generate a state of tension that we can introduce with augmented reality into a person who experiences a pleasant situation. The Neural Health teams, led by Eduardo Cornejo, also use artificial intelligence to make methods and results more efficient.

Who hasn’t had to get a blood test done at some point in their life? Who knew that tubes containing blood had to be handled with care? Not only due to bumps and knocks, but also due to temperature and other factors. That sample should arrive as stable as possible in the laboratory or the area where it will be analyzed. If these samples go into a container that makes all this happen, like the one developed by Javier Cuello and his partners at H+Trace (including sensors, IoT and data intelligence), then the quality of the results and the medical conclusions will be much more accurate. .

Sometimes these blood tests are preliminary to a surgical intervention where anesthesia is necessary. Did you know that this application must comply with certain quantities and times? And that the assimilation of said anesthesia is controlled in every case. The ability to have a team 3 times cheaper than usual and checked with greater accuracy via mobile phone in your pocket is something that Nerbio has achieved. And Christian Sapunar speaks with emotion: he knows that health brings efficiency.

Can these situations be prevented? That. MIND Health does, among other things, with AI powered by information from patients and situations that feed analysis and they provide notifications so that each of us can know if we need to review, review or just improve the habit. Gustavo Daquarti leads the team that applies AI and has interesting anecdotes.

It would be very beneficial for everyone to access these cases, to understand the wonderful resources that exist to improve well-being or health. How to communicate all that? When? Whom? What’s better than going to a team as experienced in awareness campaigns as Grey? All the more so if Denise Orman tells us about it, who with her team devised ways of provoking in order to attract attention and understanding.

These are some of the projects that inspire, that motivate us to understand that all drops are wet and that we can all be a drop, a bucket, a wave that pushes the impact on health.
