However, it's here to stay, and it's getting better. This change has given clinicians an opportunity that they have never had before. They have access … Continue reading 6 options if you want to analyze clinical data in 2017
The other day I had a meeting with an emergency medicine trainee who wanted to develop an app for his quality improvement project. I've known this guy for a while and I know that he's smart and motivated, however, he himself acknowledged that he misjudged the approach. There were things that he just didn't take … Continue reading why you should simplify your med tech idea
This blog is mainly aimed at clinicians wanting to learn how to code or innovate with tech in health. However, last night I found myself sitting on the tube surrounded by long faces as there had been a terror attack roughly an hour earlier. So today I will be writing about a particular part of this … Continue reading Uber rising prices in terror attack
Machine learning is coming to medicine. Even though I am a fan of computing even I have been shocked at the speed of the advancement of machine learning in medicine. We can discuss the ethics, we can proclaim that it’s not fair, however, this will not change the fact that machine learning is coming. A … Continue reading 3 ways you can beat machine learning
The summer sun has brought the heat and I'm feeling it. The extra weight I put on over exam period aids in my overheating as I walk down the road and sit on the tube.

It was this desire that struck me with a realization as to why I see computing … Continue reading Competing with computers? You’re looking at it wrong.
Exams have been strenuous. On the day of my birthday, I found myself sitting in an exam hall trying to work out the derivations on non-linear acoustics in ultrasound and feeling like the stupidest guy on earth. For a birthday celebration I met up with a friend and we walked along the river before I went … Continue reading Were you really in a startup?
The start-up enthusiasm has seemed to have taken the NHS by storm. It's exciting to see so many people coming up with ideas and trying to make them work. Sadly I've got to be frank, a fair number of the ideas that are pitched to me are just not practical. Whilst I have come across … Continue reading 3 reasons why clinicians should dabble in code
I remember falling in love with the idea of big data and computational modeling 5 years ago. Back then I was isolated. I was starting my physics degree and working in A and E. Both were good in themselves but they never crossed. When I spoke to doctors about big data and number crunching they simply … Continue reading The split: techy doctors/traditional doctors
We've all been there. We've all used a piece of equipment or clinical software and thought, if only the developers and engineers understood how a hospital worked.

I don't mean that … Continue reading Surprisingly clinicians also hold back tech innovation
