S.M.A.C.W.L. stands for Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud, Workflow, and Language, the big six technologies diffusing throughout healthcare, upending traditional health IT vendors, and creating opportunities for others. The first four tech trends have already been "acronym-ized" as SMAC. I added Workflow and Language. SMAC is really a new platform for creating and delivering health information management services less expensively to a wider audience of clinicians and patients, and everyone else who supports that relationship. But I believe it is the workflow and language technologies, which SMAC will deliver to the point-of-care and point-of-health, that will make possible smarter, more efficient, and more flexible digital health.

Also, many thanks to TEDMED and The Hive for the first subset of S.M.A.C.W.L. profiles: TEDMED “The Hive” Companies and The Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud, Workflow and Language Technologies.

The Empower "Cognitive Graph":
Empower’s online interfaces for individuals and clinicians are driven by the underlying content collections and end user data storage. As individuals use the system, their data is stored in the cognitive graph, enabling ongoing analysis and customization. The data from the system use is fed back into the graph, providing new insights on each program component.

Fact: The average time from sign up for the Ovuline Smart Fertility Process to pregnancy is 56 days.
How Ovuline Helps: Users who follow the process are able to accurately predict their fertility window and time intercourse when it is most likely to lead to conception. Users also learn about other activities they can do on a daily basis to increase their chances of conceiving.

RxAnte targets, manages, and evaluates medication quality programs. By predicting each patient's likelihood of being adherent to specific medication, RxAnte can deliver proactive, patient-level intervention recommendations to enable population-level improvements.
From How Predictive Analytics Lets The Health Care Ecosystem Do More For Patients Who Need Help at the Strata conference:
This session will include practical stories from the field about how new predictive analytics used to “hotspot” the specific patients at the greatest risk of non-adherence can fundamentally change how health plans and delivery systems think about this problem and how they interact with patients. We’ll share early results and suggest new directions in how predictive analytics combined with new incentives in health care can usher in new care delivery strategies and innovations – along with new technologies – in improving how we take care of patients.
