Eye-phone

Eye-phone

For the first time in Turkey, an eye hospital is giving patients instant online access to personalised advice and information. With World Eye Center’s chat service, it’s possible to connect to its corporate website at any time of day or night and click on “CHAT NOW” to ask questions about eye health.  

Why it matters

Online services are increasingly replicating the human relationship reserved for face-to-face contact, but with the benefit of 24/7 access. Is the health industry another industry where online personal assistance will start rivalling the traditional service touch points?

Detecting cancer thanks to an app

17-year-old Brittany Wenger from Florida has won the Google Science Fair Grand Prize for developing an app that helps doctors diagnose breast cancer. She developed a program that learns from patterns and mistakes in data sets taken from “fine needle aspirates” samples, a minimally invasive procedure that - on its own - is rather inaccurate at detecting breast cancer. Wenger’s program, however, has 99.11% accuracy.
