The Covid Crisis Is Now a Garbage Crisis, Too

Overblown fears that the coronavirus could be transmitted through surfaces have created a stigma around handling nonhazardous trash, experts say. Some recyclable waste has been junked or burned.

Preventing Glaucoma Vision Loss with ‘Big Data’

Each morning, more than 2 million Americans start their rise-and-shine routine by remembering to take their eye drops. The drops treat their open-angle glaucoma, the most-common form of the disease, caused by obstructed drainage of fluid where the eye’s cornea and iris meet. The slow drainage increases fluid pressure at the front of the eye. Meanwhile, at the back of the eye, fluid pushes on the optic nerve, causing its bundled fibers to fray and leading to gradual loss of side vision.

Innovation through Imagination — Envisioning the Future of Technology-Supported Care

Part 2 of a three-part series discussing the importance of imagination. I’ve been thinking a lot about imagination lately and how essential it is for stimulating innovative approaches to complex problems. We need innovation in health information technology (health IT) now more than ever with what we’ve been through — a global pandemic, rising calls … Continue reading "Innovation through Imagination — Envisioning the Future of Technology-Supported Care"
