This post is long overdue. I actually left financial tech 3 months ago, but I've been caught up in a number of projects. The more interesting your life gets, the less time I have to blog. I'm trying to find the time by cutting down on Netflix time. Reading is now done entirely on the … Continue reading I Left Financial Tech… Here’s what I do Now
A couple of years ago, a Google company Deepmind worked with the Royal Free Hospital to produce an app for managing acute kidney injury. At the time I was working, and sitting exams so I never really gave it much thought. Somebody in the A and E where I was working told me that they … Continue reading Google’s app Streams shows that the NHS is damaging its future
The exam period is finally over for the year. Many a time I found myself sitting in an exam hall cursing my bad memory as details slipped away from the clutches of brain...... If only I had my notes. 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.
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. Now there's a growing community of clinicians who can code. The interesting thing is that they are now saying, if only other clinicians understood tech. I don't mean that … Continue reading Surprisingly clinicians also hold back tech innovation
For me I love the Apple operating system. The bash command line is so useful when installing modules and just general coding. I had to invest in a Windows laptop so I could run the hardware of a dynamic vision sensor for my surgical robotics project. This just reminded me how spoilt I was running … Continue reading Time for clinical to embrace tech diversity
The community of doctors and nurses who code continues to grow. This is exciting! Not only is there 90+ members in my coding meetup group, multiple doctors are contacting me and others with business ideas which utilise the boom in big data and coding languages. However, this field is still new which means that there … Continue reading 5 signs of a fraudulent clinical “tech leader”
Hp has released the new elite X3. This is a phone with 4gb RAM, up to 2 Terabytes of storage (with an SD card) and a Snapdragon 820 processor. This is pretty powerful for a phone but it's more than that. It runs Windows and can be plugged into a dock for a desktop experience … Continue reading What do 3 in 1 computers mean to clinical innovators?
Over the last couple of days I have been speaking to clinicians who have ideas for tech. They want to see clinicians lead tech innovation and they want to see more of it. Sound exciting right? However, there seems to be a naive way of looking at tech. There are clinicians out there who want … Continue reading Tech is it’s own speciality, clinicians “dipping into tech” is not effective
Sitting down with a coffee whilst skimming through my LinkedIn and Twitter feed has become a morning ritual for me. It's a great way to get pumped for the day. Many clinicians and NHS academics share articles about big data, coding and how the future of clinical innovation with bright with tech. But before you think … Continue reading Clinicians innovating with tech is like teen sex, everyone’s talking about, few do it.
