You probably came here from my blog 'Hi-Brow Perspectives'. I am the CEO & Founder of ReSurfX, Inc. (@ReSurfX - resurfx.com). I am a Mechanical Engineer turned Biotechnologist recently transformed to my new avatar as an entrepreneur with the goal of ‘Building an Efficient and Healthy World’. In my quest to combine my various exposures and interests I am starting off my capitalistic pursuit with better data-based decisions in Pharma and Healthcare.
In the recent nine months we have been reading about the impact of sequestration on various aspects of life – from defense spending to basic biomedical research. Some articles highlight dramatic consequences. I write this from the region of the USA (Boston/Cambridge area) that attracts the most amount of research funding from governmental sources per capita.
Healthcare is undergoing a major overhaul. The costs are ballooning and we are resorting to Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), remote monitoring and care, quantified-self enabled by smartphones, wearable devices, etc. to gain better understanding of cost control and sources of wasted resources. This post refers specifically to changes happening in the USA.
