Tech Health #4: Reducing diagnostic anxiety with ambient technology.

For episode #4 of the Tech Health podcast we talk to Patrick Lerou, Senior Business Development Manager EMEA at Philips Healthcare Experience Solutions about how Philips are using ambient technology to keep people calm during scans.

Using a combination of lighting, visuals and sound, they create an immersive ‘in bore’ experience that keeps people occupied (and helps kids stay still too!).

We also take a look at recent healthcare news, including the Fancy Bears hack and its impact on healthcare data storage, the winner of the Mayo Clinic’s Think Big Challenge and a study which pits sedatives against iPads.
