New tools to market at Expo 2016

Creavo
This beauty could revolutionise the admission of chest pain. It can more accurately diagnose ACS AND unstable angina in just 3 minutes in the ED. It’s currently going through studies to validate it but I can see it being very successful as it’s price point is only around £100k and it could save NHS trusts millions.

Creavomedtech only just formed. Based in Leeds with a strong support structure, good corporate backing and strong technical expertise linked to the university I think this is one to watch!

Early Sense

This platform by early sense could be useful for patients with dementia as a way to monitor them remotely. However, there are lots of cheaper bed alarms. At £3500 a bed I think this products USP is the monitoring rather than anything else.

Vanguard

This is not a new technology but it’s beginning to scale. Portable theatres and endoscopy units could help some hospitals who have capacity issues. This polentally also has a role in major incident management.

Centrihealth

This is a context based health platform. More advanced than a normal EPR (electronic patient record) system. This uses AI to filter the data and produce a useful record. This tool is FANTASTIC, but they have not yet broken into the NHS because their marketing strategy is wrong. It took me ages to get what they are actually doing and I think thats why they are struggling here. THIS IS A PATIENT SAFETY TOOL NOT A ‘CONTEXTUALISATION’ ONE. If you read this then get in contact because I think I can help you.

There are many more innovative solutions here but these ones caught my eye. To see more visit the EXPO website.
