Innovator of Handheld Digital Medical Records

At the Cambridge University Pitt Building, in a program led by Omobono Digital Services, we viewed show and tell presentations by some of Cambridge’s most promising start-ups. Among several good ideas was a great one presented by Dr. Al-Ubaydli. Conversion to digital medical records has been an American national quest for the past decade and a priority for the Obama Administration. Dr. Al-Ubaydli has been working with the Feds (NIH) for the past six years to bring his hand-held medical records download program to fruition. He suggested that University of Cambridge is a great incubator to work from and he collaborates with doctors and engineers in the States and elsewhere to bring the technology to market.

Great example of global technology development, incubated in university labs, solving big problems through collaboration of doctors, hospitals, governments, and industry.

    Thanks so much for the kind words Jeff, and for some very interesting after-dinner conversation. I hope that our next meeting will be in Bahrain.

    In the meantime, this September Patients Know Best – www.patientsknowbest.com – will launch with the University of Cambridge’s Addenbrooke’s Hospital’s patients and clinicians as the first users.
