Larkin Introduces @LarkinLabs, a "Moonshot into the Future"

South Miami based Larkin Community Hospital's next big project is the establishment of @LarkinLabs, which Dr. Jack Michel, President, says represents its "moonshot" into the future. @LarkinLabs is a transformative vehicle which will allow Larkin to pursue ideas to change the world. It plans to work to conduct multidisciplinary research, including social media, mobile technology and innovative wearables in healthcare. The goal is to enhance ability to understand and improve individual and population health behaviors, and outcomes through direct evidence-based interventions.
At the center of it all will be its proprietary artificial intelligence system, Hippokrates, which will analyze the data and help discover innovative solutions. "We're really excited about this development," says Dr. Michel. "Our vision is to bring cutting edge insight to the study of all aspects involved in daily life while analyzing the data to improve health. Our healthcare system in the U.S. is the most expensive and most inefficient in the world. We need to improve upon that. Hippokrates will allow us to gather data from patient encounters and determine what treatments result in better outcomes."

7th Annual ANF Group Tour de Broward to Benefit Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital
Cycling, running, and walking are regular Sunday activities for many South Floridians, but their physical efforts will take on extra meaning the morning of February 28, 2016.
That's when the 7th annual ANF Group Tour de Broward will take place at Miramar Regional Park and thousands will exercise to help children and families at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.
The community fundraiser, sponsored by ANF Group, consists of 50 and 100K bicycle rides, a 5K timed run, 3K walk, and the "Power of Play Kid Zone," a sports-themed, fun area for children 13 or younger.
