Advancing Health With Information Technology in the 21st Century

Conclusion In the Information Age, to advance the care of patients, new technologies including wearables, remote monitoring, text messaging, apps, and social media are being added to the 'black bag' of tools carried by physicians and other health care providers including the blood pressure cuff, thermometer and stethoscope. This technology-shaped shift in health care, if implemented with innovation and evaluation, could potentially help reduce the rate of re-hospitalizations, allow for earlier diagnosis and intervention, promote prevention, reduce costs, and improve chronic disease management in communities across our country and world. While more research is needed to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of e-health interventions and solutions, they hold great promise for health system transformations and innovation in the 21st century.

Authors: Yoon HJ, Kim JH Abstract Diagnosis and evaluation of early gastric cancer (EGC) using endoscopic images is significantly important; however, it has some limitations. In several studies, the application of convolutional neural network (CNN) greatly enhanced the effectiveness of endoscopy. To maximize clinical usefulness, it is important to determine the optimal method of applying CNN for each organ and disease. Lesion�-based CNN is a type of deep learning model designed to learn the entire lesion from endoscopic images. This review describes the application of lesion-based CNN technology in diagnosis of E...
