Children's Hospitals Today - Winter 2017 - 19


INNOVATION / FEATURE

TECHNOLOGY
1 | ECMO
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)-the use of a
machine to take over the work of the lungs, and sometimes the
heart, as a rescue therapy-has given patients a second chance at
life over the last 25 years. "It has brought many children who were on
the verge of not surviving back to life and helped them lead healthy
lives," says M. Narendra Kini, M.D., M.H.A., CEO, Miami Children's
Health System. "If you were to ask me the singular most impactful
innovation in terms of incorporating technology, as well as making
impact on survival, I would have to say in the top 5 would be ECMO,"
says Anthony Chang, M.D., MBA, M.P.H., chief intelligence and
innovation officer, Children's Hospital of Orange County and founder
of the International Society for Pediatric Innovation (iSPI).

2 | Telemedicine
With the growing use of tablets,
smartphones and even home
robots, telemedicine is changing
the way people access care and
engage with providers in real time.
"It keeps patients closer to home,
so they don't have to make a trip
to their children's hospital to get
specialty care," says Kelly Wolfe,
public policy director, Children's
Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
"With a medically complex
population, it's about finding ways
to meet patients where they are."

3 | Electronic
medical records (EMR)
Digitizing a patient's medical
history so it can easily follow him or
her across all health care settings,
EMR has advanced diagnosis and
treatment of patients. And now with
mobile-enabled EMRs, providers
can access patient records at a
moment's notice-any time. "I
have access to all patient records
wherever I am," says Michael
Docktor, M.D., attending physician
in gastroenterology; clinical
director of innovation; director of
clinical mobile solutions, Boston
Children's Hospital.

4 | Digital engagement
Apps monitor and deliver health
care and engage patients and
families. From apps that enable
families to access urgent care wait
times and check test results, to
easy check-in and discharge, the
era of smartphone convenience has
permeated every part of life.

5 | Big data
Big data in pediatrics is a massive combination of EMRs, patientgenerated data sources and biospecimens aggregated from multiple
institutions and thousands-if not millions-of children. With the
increasing focus on evidence-based medicine in pediatrics, aggregating
individual data sets into big-data algorithms is giving clinicians much
more robust evidence on which to base care decisions-faster than ever.

diverse, more informed
and more financially
responsible for care.
Because of these
drivers, the location,
methods, technology,
and composition of the
care team will evolve."
