Your Doctor Visits May Remain Virtual, Long After Coronavirus Pandemic
BOSTON (CBS) – In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the number of virtual doctors’ appointments has skyrocketed. Between 60 and 70 percent of outpatients at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital are now scheduling telemedicine appointments rather than traditional in-person visits.

Best Practices for Human-Centric Design of Medical Devices
Medical devices designed to accommodate human variability present a growing opportunity for the healthcare and life sciences industries. Historically, medicine has solved many of the “simple” issues first: how to fix a broken leg has been known for centuries! But today we have treatments that didn’t even exist a generation ago, such as the use of stents and replacement valves for heart disease. These devices address a more limited cohort of people and are most successful when designed to be patient-specific. The cohorts themselves must also be further defined to account...

Texas A & M researchers help give robotic arms a steady hand for surgeries
(Texas A&M University) Steady hands and uninterrupted, sharp vision are critical when performing surgery on delicate structures like the brain or hair-thin blood vessels. While surgical cameras have improved what surgeons see during operative procedures, the 'steady hand' remains to be enhanced -- new surgical technologies, including sophisticated surgeon-guided robotic hands, cannot prevent accidental injuries when operating close to fragile tissue.

Discussion The purpose of measuring temperature is to monitor the health of the individual and evaluate for a potentially abnormal physiological state such an ambient hyper/hypothermia or infectious disease. Rectal and esophageal temperature are considered the two most reliable measures for the gold standard of core body temperature. Oral, axillary and inguinal temperatures are common alternative measurement sites but do underestimate core body temperature. These sites often use digital/electronic temperature measurements and contact with the patient’s skin which is not helpful for high volume screening locations. An...

New Developments in FDA Regulation of AI
CONCLUSION On the whole, FDA seems very enthusiastic about the possibilities for AI to improve healthcare.  That’s gratifying to see. While progress in the development of a new regulatory approach is slow, that’s also not all bad. It would be worse in many ways for FDA to act precipitously.  These are complicated issues, and it will take time to develop an appropriate approach, in part because it will take time for FDA to acquire enough expertise. And most likely, whatever new approach we come up with will require new statutory authority. That said, it is incumben...
