re: I'm rich and I hoard wealth


quote:

Across all disciplines 1 in 5 patients are diagnosed incorrectly.

Bull shite.

quote:

If computers can help get that number to 1 in 10 or 1 in 20 it would be well worth the investment IMO.

And if we can keep it at 1 in 20 with a few less doctors around to lower costs, so be it.

It will be a useful investment, if it assist us in out diagnostic capabilities. If we can do it with less doctors, great!!!!!!! We have a nationwide shortage that is only worsening by the year. I have to turn away pt's everyday. They will first have to help us meet current demand before we can be replaced.

The claim is diagnosed incorrectly or "incompletely" per IBM

Take it up with them if you want.

re: I'm rich and I hoard wealth


quote:

According to one expert, only 20 percent of the knowledge physicians use to make diagnosis and treatment decisions today is evidence based. The result? One in five diagnoses are incorrect or incomplete and nearly 1.5 million medication errors are made in the US every year. Given the growing complexity of medical decision making, how can health care providers address these problems?

I don't know if I buy the 20% number. I wouldn't have before reading this thread but you guys have done a pretty good job of convincing me of the artistic/instinctual/bull shite portion of your jobs so maybe it's not that far fetched.

quote:

Watson then mines the patient data to find relevant facts about family history, current medications and other existing conditions. It combines this information with current findings from tests and instruments and then examines all available data sources to form hypotheses and test them. Watson can incorporate treatment guidelines, electronic medical record data, doctor's and nurse's notes, research, clinical studies, journal articles, and patient information into the data available for analysis.


Good luck

Good for you. You probably wouldn't make a very good programmer though. You don't have the logical aptitude for it. Maybe you could be trained with time. But the IBM guys would make everyone in this thread look like morons.

Speak for yourself. We can start posting IQ scores if you want, but I'm pretty confident that I'm the smartest person in any room I walk into. Of course, I'm smart enough to know that they know more about computers and programming than I do. Actually mathematics is probably my strongest area, and I was far better than my wife in math. However, she does have a doctorate. So, I defer mathmatical topics to her. We do have some deeeeeeeep conversations about theoretical mathematics, abstract algebra and such. She has an IQ of 136 and she's the dumb one.

Yeah. I'm arrogant.



For someone that is so intelligent you seem oblivious when it comes to technology.

Luckily you're an old fart and won't be a victim of the robot apocalypse.

Right. And this thread pretty much proves that at least some of them are pretty average.

The OP doesn't really stand out as being intelligent around here if you ask me.

Doctors work their asses off and I have a ton of respect for them.

But, this thread shows how great of a bias Doctors really have. I would never want to be treated by a Doctor that claims to be the smartest person in any room they walk into.

I gave my daughter a nickel 3 years ago.

She now has a quarter.

And I don't recall the two of you ever in the same room together... so maybe you weren't wrong.

Meh..I made that up. I did take a couple computer science classes though. Enough to make me an expert according to your logic, so I gave myself an honorary degree.
