West Health Institute demonstrates research advances in medical device interoperability that could lower the cost of health care

March 4, 2013

The West Health Institute demonstrated research for the HIMSS13 Annual Conference that enables seamless, standards-based communication between medical devices and information systems, and was featured at the HIMSS13 Interoperability Showcase™.

This demonstration of software-based interoperability is part of a collaborative research effort with Wind River, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, and the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to achieve interoperability starting at the patient’s point-of-care medical device’s interfaces all the way through to their electronic health record (EHR). The approach is expected to simplify health information technology (HIT) requirements and improve the delivery of care through a patient-centered network of connected and coordinated devices.

Leaders Talk Next Generation 911
at West Health Institute

June 14, 2012

Boyd Long, Assistant Chief of Police - San Diego Police Department

In June, West Health convened a “Next Generation 911” meeting that brought together more than 65 community leaders and representatives from various San Diego public safety organizations, as well as academic researchers, health practitioners, program specialists and representatives from government agencies to examine issues related to San Diego’s public safety network and future implementation of Next Generation 911 in our city.

The West Health Policy Center continues the work of the West Health Institute to bring together policymakers and the public and private sectors to discuss innovative solutions to our nation’s health care cost challenges.

Health Care Innovation Day (HCI-DC) is an annual series designed to accelerate the conversation about innovation and scaling solutions that will lower the cost of health care. It aims to bridge the gap between industry and government to build a thriving low-cost ecosystem. HCI-DC events have featured the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Federal Communications Commission.

The West Health Policy Center is pleased to promote the Care Innovations Summit, its latest HCI-DC event, along with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the West Wireless Health Institute, and Health Affairs. The event was held on January 26, 2012 at the Marriott Renaissance Hotel in Washington D.C.

The Care Innovations Summit brought together health delivery systems, innovators, policymakers, academics and investors to showcase care delivery and payment solutions already working in the marketplace. This event catalyzes the dialogue for scaling up successful solutions to lower the cost of health care. Visit HCI-DC Event Site

Dr. Joe Smith gives keynote address at BIOCOM DeviceFest 2012


Dr. Joe Smith, chief science and medical officer of West Health, delivered the keynote address at BIOCOM’s DeviceFest 2012 in Orange County on Aug. 22. Addressing a crowd of life science executives and members of the research community, Dr. Smith gave an overview of West Health’s efforts to address the cost crisis in health care and an overview of how technology can lower costs by helping to bring patients the right care at the right place at the right time.

“We have a remarkable cellular infrastructure that is totally underused for healthcare … We have really good systems to wirelessly monitor roads, bridges and cars. We need remote monitors for people too,” said Dr. Smith. “It’s now a viable business model to work to lower the cost of health care.”
