Australia uses Japanese “snow” to treat heart patientsToo often, medical errors result from clinical staff having insufficient or incomplete information about their patients. Austin Health in Melbourne, Australia is working with Shimadzu to build a new digital system called Yuki that will provide precise, real-time information about patients undergoing heart procedures, alerting staff of anticipated problems.
“ 'Yuki' means 'snow' in Japanese. Snow is like a blank canvas, which is how we felt when we started this project,” says Dr. Horrigan.
