    ​To make the See-Shell, researchers digitally scanned the surface of the mouse skull and then used the digital scans to create an artificial transparent skull that has the same contours as the original skull. During a precise surgery, the top of the mouse skull is replaced with the 3D-printed transparent skull device. The device allows researchers to record brain activity simultaneously while imaging the entire brain in real time. Read More

    ​Focus on delivering value — Most importantly, organizations must be committed to helping their participants put this health data to work. The vast network of health data has no value if providers can’t extract signal from the noise. In large systems, that means securely delivering raw feeds of health data to connect directly into existing EHR, notification, and population health management systems. In small practices, that means delivering easy-to-use real-time hospitalization notifications with just the details providers need to act and a suite of free analytics tools to help with simple population health and risk modeling searches.
