“Clearly, biomedical engineering has a completely different synergy of operation than it did 15-20 years ago, and part of that is reflected at Memorial Sloan Kettering, where biomedical engineering is actually a clinical department interacting heavily with its clinical counterparts in various forms of treatment and therapy,” said Frisch. “As a result, we have a mechanical engineering department that works under biomedical engineering to help support radiation therapy processes and surgical processes.”
Any conversation about the future of healthcare would be incomplete without a mention of artificial intelligence, but discerning actionable insights in health technology management data is still in its early stages. Frisch attributed this to the kind of information its databases typically use.

“For repair and maintenance things you want mean time between failures and databases that are comprehensive enough to reveal these patterns,” he explained. “To be able to predict the life cycle of a device you need pieces of information; when you purchased, how long you’ve had it, failures, and so on. Typically, that type of information is segregated in the hospital, so biomed hasn’t always had access to it.”Back to HCB News
