Futuristic Medical Care System
Explain your idea in details:
Owing to the fact that diseases and accidents are unforeseen circumstances, management and services within medical organizations should be flexible, yet, practical towards the situation. The main objective of the Futuristic Medical Care System is to strengthen the medical care system through the use of AI. Medical services will be indeed affordable, accessible, and convenient to the patients of all ages while concurrently enhance the financial and system stability throughout the medical organizations without violating medical ethics. Elderly patients who are not familiar with the system will get help from medical practitioners. The system management will be divided into two: the data and operational management. Each will consist of AI which will support its activity. 1) DATA MANAGEMENT 1.1)SELF CHECK-IN & OUT KIOSKS 1.2)MEDICAL APPLICATIONS: Including medical consultation at self-pace location ( for less severe symptoms or pre-health consultation), Symptoms-to-diseases matching app, and Self Check-in & Out via smartphones 1.3)DISEASE SCANNING & ANALYZING MONITOR: Pairs up with Biodegradable disease-detecting microchip for real-time disease analysis. The function of Disease scanning & analyzing monitor is to enable detection for diseases within an inaccessible area. 1.4)AUTOMATIC DISEASE PREDICTING SOFTWARE: calculates the incidence of diseases and gives medical advice based on patient's blood sample and data (from the kiosk). For instance, possible ____% having cancer, if consume ____g of ____. Possible growth rates of ____/ month. 2) OPERATION MANAGEMENT 2.1)WIRELESS SURGICAL OPERATIONS: Including hololens/ robotic surgery and medical 3d printing. This method allows surgical operations to be delivered to remote and other inaccessible areas (ie. airplanes, warzone, and caves) 2.2)SELF-SERVICE PHARMACY: vending machine-like monitor which allows patients to scan their barcode/ face/ fingers to receive their medical prescriptions. 2.3)SMART MEDICAL SOLUTION DISPENSER (WIRELESS) 2.4)MEDICAL DRONES: delivering vaccines and medical equipment to remote areas and emergency sites. 2.5)SMART LIFE-SAVING EQUIPMENT (WIRELESS): includes automatic hemostasis and CPR device
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Since my concept is life-related, I believe that every sustainable development goal can be pursued either directly or indirectly. The futuristic medical system will aim to achieve a sustainable development goal by aiming at obtaining these five impacts: 1). Social Impact: With hospitals and medical organizations being interdependent, Futuristic medical system will be able to promote partnerships between various stakeholder in the medical field. As a result of the usage of live-saving aspect, we will promote peace as well as enhance equality in accessing medical treatment. 2) Efficient environmental impact: This medical system involves the utilization of wireless medical operations, medical services, and equipment which will then be transferred without using up resources for distribution such as fuel. Also, with medical kiosks, applications, and other innovations that support medical activities, paperwork will be reduced; therefore, we will be able to reduce paper consumption. Thus, this medical system will be able to protect the environment in and out of the healthcare facility. 3). Economical Outcome: We will aim at reducing medical costs for the patients by stimulating the economic activity of the medical-related business itself by medical trading between medical organizations and medical tourism. 4). Physical Outcome: Futuristic medical system with the use of artificial intelligence will ensure patients get affordable, convenient, and effective medical services and precise diagnosis and this will result in people being able to live a healthy life in a way that they expected and contribute what they plan. For example, the use of advance HoloLens imaging to help in detecting diseases in an inaccessible area in the body. 5). Technological Outcome: With the integration of artificial intelligence into the concept, we will promote, enhance, and stimulate technological advancement by putting it into actions and a result, improve technology in the medical field.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The model of this concept is the blending of medical, technology, and business principles where hospitals, medical-related organizations, and medical-related businesses will be interdependent and connected through the use of artificial intelligence in order to produce qualified medical services. Being a fusion of artificial intelligence and medical principles, first, the medical staff would require training to be informed on the element of usability of the system. The training session would be conducted regularly to healthcare providers on how to use and integrated the system to their daily practices. It would be done by specialists and IT department of the healthcare facility. Then education will be conducted in various ways, including the use of social media to the patients on how the medical would help in the treatment and diagnosis process. They will also be trained on how to download and use some of the mobile application on their electronic devices. Staff will be readily available to respond to queries and concerns regarding this system. Also, during the implementation process, medical organization and hospitals interested to join and use this medical system will conduct partnership agreements based on the medical and business ethics of how to use and sustain the system. This collaboration will develop ways of financing the implementation of the system. Also, there will be a collaboration between developers, biomedical engineers, and programmer which will work on researching how each medical technology, which integrates the use of AI, works. Also, collaborations with the governments will help to provide protection and resources (ie. funding and international relations) for the system and patients. With the help of the medical organizations, medical personnel, government, and surrounding organizations, mechanisms of production and integration will be made.
My name is Kanokluck Thongkalya, I'm 20 years old, and I'm from Bangkok, Thailand. Currently, I am a premedical student, majoring in Biology, in the United States. Also, I am expecting my minor in Neuroscience and second bachelor's degree in Chemistry. As a person who was born prematurely, I've been struggling with constant sickness throughout my life. This might be a blessing in disguise, I discovered how meaningful life is and what my encouragements are. I felt that recovering isn't just about living, but it's about getting back the opportunity to pursue something we haven't done, to make up for our mistakes, and to pass on meaningful things to others. My own sickness has always been my inspiration on my medical path. Instead regret being born with weak immune system, I appreciate this condition that it enables me to truly experience what the patients experienced, understand the struggles the patients received, and identify the obstacles the patients faced. It is indeed a heart-breaking thing that our life and death were verdict from what we have, but not from who we are. I personally feels that currently, many systems were being concerned and adapted to the 21st condition. However, the system that our life and death rely on is still struggling with inequalities that the system itself created. Human is the main factor that drives our world's activity. Our life is an indicator of our world's existence. Therefore, life is so priceless that we need to exterminate all the obstacles that bind us from receiving quality medical services. For this reason, my intention is to strengthen the medical care system, using the 21st-century method. By joining the Best Ideas 2019, I believe that I will be able to create awareness and contribute something meaningful to others.
