2. Realistic 3D immersive visualization of a fetus

2.1. Description

2.1.1. This technology allows for a fetus to be created in a visual representation of the development of an unborn child. This technology is the combination of an ultrasound and a MRI.

2.1.2. This can be used in the clinical environment because it can see prenatal abnormalities and help assist health care providers see the development in a more accurate way. Providing a lot of information for the physician could be beneficial and also allow the necessary precaution of the fetus' development.

2.2. Triple Aim

2.2.1. Benefits mothers and expecting families.

2.2.2. Improves care by treating physical respiratory tract abnormalities.

2.2.3. Reduces cost by fixing the problem before any major problem occurs.

3. Live Cell Imaging via smartphone

3.1. Description

3.1.1. This technology allows the use of smartphones to record live data such as moving cells without the use of a expensive equipment

3.1.2. This can be used in clinical environment to use to see if any diseases are present. This can allow for possible faster results and also help research be more readily available

3.2. Triple Aim:

3.2.1. Benefits anyone in the hospital who needs testing.

3.2.2. Improves quality of care due to faster test results

3.2.3. Reduces cost for hospitals because a smartphone is a lot more affordable compared to other expensive equipment

4. New Drug Delivery system via magnet

4.1. Description

4.1.1. This technology involves a magnet in which will assist the drug delivery system to patients whom takes numerous medication and/or intravenous injections. It's worked by putting medication into the magnet that can be triggered to release the dose into the system. This will prevent infections of IV's and help the patient take their dosage.

4.1.2. This can be used in a clinical environment because it will be surgically done and administered into the magnet. It will provide a better alternative compared to being stabbed multiple times through intravenous injections.

4.2. Triple Aim

4.2.1. Benefits patients who need to take multiple medication

4.2.2. Improves the patients quality of life of preventing multiple medication and injections. This will prevent bruising in the arms

4.2.3. Reduces cost by giving better care. This will reduce doctor visits for medication and ensure the patient is taking the prescribed medication on time. Sometimes, people will not take the medication properly, thus become ill more frequently. This will make them return to the clinic and cost the healthcare system even more. If this option is eliminated, it will reduce the costs.

6. Legislation

6.1. MIPPA stands for the Medicare Improvement for Patients and Providers Act. This legislation was made in 2008 and helps improve patient care by using technology and e-prescribing (Hebda & Czar, 2013, p. 380). This demonstrates that this act has its guidelines and criteria that certain technologies are to be used. These directly affect the technologies upcoming. This is supposed to help patients improve their quality of life while also reduce cost. This is a beneficial act that guides new technological advances in healthcare.
