Innovation, Vibrancy & Dynamism - 7 days in Silicon Valley

So…let’s be honest. How much do Scottish entrepreneurs really know about the Silicon Valley start-up ecosystem? As an innovative breed of human beings who are keen to push boundaries, one thing is for sure we’re certainly keen to know more! We’ve all heard talk about how great the “Valley” is and how companies can achieve multi-million dollar investments that are on an eye watering scale in comparison to what we generally see here in Scotland. As the MIME Technologies team spent seven days and seven nights packing our diaries in Silicon Valley (a prize won at Scottish EDGE Round 10 finals), we gained a...

Natural Language Generation in the health sector and its applicability for pre-hospital care

Let us introduce you…meet Alan and Sarah. Alan lives in the UK and his job is cabin crew for a European airline. 6,000 miles away, Sarah lives in Botswana. She works as a Park Ranger and spends her days providing safari experiences for international tourists.  Both Alan and Sarah share a common responsibility. They are first responders, not doctors, paramedics or healthcare professionals but someone with just a few days of first aid training. Should they face a medical emergency in their job, they are tasked with delivering best possible care and communicating the incident until such time that they...

A Letter from MIME Technologies

The Proclaimers once composed in their 1987 hit single 'Letter from America' about, "Lochaber no more, Sutherland no more, Lewis no more, Skye no more." You can just about hear the song as you read those words, and the lyrics became synonymous with the Freshers week melee at universities (probably still just as relevant in 3017 as in 2017), at weddings...at really any event that had some element of 1) 'disco' and 2) 'Scottishness', although not exclusively. It was a tremendous international success, and it was written around emigration as the theme. Emigration in modern times, due in part to...

Definitions of 'remote' - it's not just about distance, by Alasdair Mort

‘Remote’ – from the Latin ‘remotus’ (removed) Adjective 1.       Distant from towns and cities - “a remote Scottish glen” 2.       Having minimal relationship or connection - “The brother and sister’s relationship was always remote” 3.       A networked computing system - “Remote access is available through IP address 192.34.673.21”   Flick through your dictionary of choice and this is the sort of definition you will see for the word ‘remote’. It’s the type of description that most of us would think of instinctively, although I would guess that most people would imagine distance first. Your mind might drift to a...

Rural & remote digital healthcare: challenge or opportunity?

In a world where digital technologies are at the forefront of everything we do, how much of a disadvantage are our remote communities really facing? Globally, we increasingly see mobile devices being used as a healthcare hub; we store information on ourselves daily, like activities, diet, exercise and sleep.…this trend is only set to increase! Although few are currently integrated into our NHS, the future is most likely to see more sophisticated mobile health apps. We are even beginning to see drones being tested to deliver healthcare packages to remote locations. The key contributor to speeding up this process...

Increasing pressures on emergency services - a sustainable solution? UK Co-Response

Of course, in an ideal world, during a medical emergency everyone needing an ambulance should get one with perfect timing. Unfortunately, the reality is our NHS ambulance services remain under continuous daily pressure at a national scale. Being first on-scene can be extremely daunting and stressful….but it’s a vital and time critical role! Simply maintaining a patient’s airway CAN save a life. There is no doubt that properly organised response teams like fire fighters and police forces can provide support to ambulance services, often they arrive first on-scene for 999 calls. In the UK we now have an increasing number of collaborations...

Technology on the frontline: can digital health save our NHS?

Most of us dearly love our frontline NHS. It’s there when we need it from cradle to grave. But it’s an NHS in trouble, under unprecedented pressure of resource versus demand. English hospital trusts ended 2016 with a deficit of £2.45bn. That’s a new record, almost three times more than the year before. To boot, this year we saw winter pressure challenges high on the political agenda, with our NHS being advertised at breaking point. Every year our emergency services are under significant strain. Where are things going ‘wrong’? How can we better support our frontline staff? These are points...

Blog bites: Good luck to this weekend's Loch Ness marathon runners

This weekend sees the return of the Loch Ness marathon, with some of the most amazing scenery for this 26.2 mile route. The run may be hilly (as CEO Alasdair can attest to!) but there is nothing quite like it, with fantastic support from a number of agencies like the British Red Cross. We'd like to wish the runners all the best; get those PBs, eat those energy gels, but most importantly enjoy it!
