Local Company’s Product Speeds Vital Pacemaker Data
By Paul Sisson | January 7, 2015
Modern hospitals have high-tech scanners that can peer inside the body in seconds, yet checking out a patient’s pacemaker often takes 90 minutes or more and relies on a visit from an outside sales representative. Those are precious moments lost in the emergency room.
At a time when smartphones move data — even photos and video — more quickly than ever before, the process of gleaning information from implanted cardiac devices can be painfully slow.

IBM’s Watson Attracts Commercial Clients
By Steve Lohr | October 7, 2014
No one questions that IBM’s Watson technology is impressive. The question is: How much of a business can it become?
IBM will show off progress on that front on Wednesday when it officially opens Watson’s business home in downtown Manhattan. IBM is announcing that about 100 companies and nonprofit institutions are developing and beginning to offer software applications using the Watson engine.
Healthcare information systems company and Physician Resource Center member, athenahealth, is teaming up with technology giant Apple Inc. to build integrations to support Apple’s recently launched health service mobile app, HealthKit.
One of the ideas behind HealthKit is that it helps health and fitness services share their information with the app and with each other. A key feature is that HealthKit users may customize the extent to which their health information is shared.
For example, someone suffering from high blood pressure may want to allow the data from a heart monitoring app to be automatically shared with his/her healthcare provider. Another example would be allowing a fitness app to share data with a nutrition app to help calculate how many calories should be consumed based on activity level.
