Antiquated approaches and resistance to change hampers patient access to quality care and inflates costs according to a new organization promoting the use of artificial intelligence and related technologies in healthcare.
Having a map of soybean genes is key for breeders, who work to develop varieties that farmers can use to help battle diseases and other environmental factors. For nearly a decade, only one soybean cultivar -- 'Williams 82' -- had been sequenced, but MU scientists led by Henry Nguyen now have succeeded in mapping two more, giving breeders access to a broader array of soybean genes.
The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) today launched the Clinician Well-Being Knowledge Hub, a comprehensive online repository for health system leaders, clinicians, and trainees that contains resources highlighting promising approaches for combating clinician burnout, such as research and news articles, toolkits, peer-reviewed literature, and reports.
Thanks to research, conformance procedures and standards developed primarily by NIST, the FCC is conducting its first-ever test to see if commercial broadband wireless users -- such as Nokia, Federated Wireless and Google -- can share a RF spectrum band with the military. Spectrum sharing could provide less-congested wireless channels for densely populated areas and more reliable connections for advanced communications needs such as 5G wireless and internet of things applications.
University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute officially opened the APOLLO trial today implanting the Intrepid transcatheter mitral valve replacement system on the first patient involved in the study.
