  • Acuity-adaptable rooms, where hospitals keep a patient in the same room from admission to discharge, regardless of acuity level.
  • Insertable cardiac monitors that interface with a smartphone to detect and report atrial fibrillation and record the heart’s electrical activity if the patient is experiencing chest pain or syncope.
  • Virtual reality for pediatric patients to help reduce pain and anxiety during procedures.
  • Microneedles for nearly pain-free blood draws.
  • Intraoperatively delivered brachytherapy for brain tumors.
  • Microhospitals to help increase access to healthcare in fast-growing areas.
