Patient Twinning: The Future of Healthcare Healthcare Perspectives

    • Science

The pursuit of precision medicine using technology has given rise to the idea of creating patients' digital twins. The successful development of digital twins of individual organs has set the stage for its development. However, the quantity and quality of data required to create a functional patient twin is an obstacle that is yet to be conquered, as are legislative and regulatory challenges.
Today, Peter Schardt, Siemens Healthineers’ Chief Technology Officer is joined by four guests - Dr. Ulrike Attenberger, Professor and Chair of the Department of Radiology at the University Hospital in Bonn, Germany. Tobias Heimann, Head of Artificial Intelligence at Siemens Healthineers Germany. Siobhan Graham, Head of Radiotherapy at Barking, Havering, and Redbridge University Hospitals in Essex, UK, and Nikki Akar, Lead Chemotherapy Nurse at the same hospital.
Stay tuned to find out what a patient twin is, how it can be created and the benefits it could offer patients and medical practitioners. You’ll learn more about the cloud-based software as a service, Noona, which can be seen as a first step towards a disease-focused version of the digital twin, and how it is used by cancer patients as their 24/7 companion on their journey.
What You’ll Learn in This Episode:

How a digital twin of the liver is used in medical research (03:49)How digital twinning can help advance precision medicine (04:45)The requirements for building a patient’s twin (07:52)How Noona is used at Barking, Havering, and Redbridge University Hospitals in Essex, UK (10:44)The impact that Noona is having on the provider-patient relationship (13:56)What would need to be done to collect enough data to create patient twins (19:39)
