A Paris, le 10 novembre 2057, Alain Degas, qui a un peu trop arrosé son 37e anniversaire, est en retard. Il revêt en vitesse sa veste «intelligente», se précipite dans l'escalier et trébuche sur un robot aspirateur avant de passer à travers une baie vitrée. Une ambulance volante le transporte à l'hôpital. Diagnostic : sa moelle épinière est atteinte et son accélérateur cardiaque artificiel est endommagé. La technologie va-t-elle pouvoir le sauver ? Ce documentaire-fiction s'intéresse à l'évolution de la technologie dans les années à venir et imagine, à partir de données réalistes, le quotidien de demain en matière de santé.

Meilleure innovation: Umanlife Regrouper toutes les informations santé de la famille sur un seul outil, voici le défi d'Alexandre Plé lorsqu'il fonde Umanlife en 2012. Le carnet de santé intelligent centralise toutes les données santé (rendez-vous médicaux, examens, maladies, vaccinations, grossesse, hospitalisations) mais aussi les objets connectés via une application intégrée.
Surfant sur la tendance du quantified-self (mesure de ses données personnelles) et du marché des datas, Umanlife revendique son professionnalisme avec une ligne éditoriale validée par un comité d'éthique (composé de professeurs, chercheurs, médecins). L'offre du tableau de bord santé s'articule autour de plusieurs modules (sport, nutrition, addictions, sommeil...) et propose des outils tels qu'un annuaire de professionnels de santé. Présent au CES 2015 pour présenter son nouveau site et ses nouveaux services, Umanlife envisage un développement à l'international (notamment le Brésil et les Etats-Unis) pour 2015.

While we have all heard “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” the real fruit of the healthcare industry today is social media. Social media is a bridge connecting people, ideas and emotions to answers. Possibilities. Healthcare is growing at a rapid pace, but the sphere of influence driven by social media is growing even faster.
With the development of smart phones and high speed internet comes the need for instantaneous results, brand relationships and full-disclosure. This trend does not circumvent the healthcare field. The impact a strong social presence can have on healthcare providers and patients alike knows no bounds.
Consumers today are hungry for information… And they want it now.
Nearly 34 percent of consumers find themselves using social platforms such as online forums, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to find and share medical information (Source: Demi & Cooper). In fact, a recent consumer survey suggests 72 percent of patients in the U.S. searched online for health-related information before and after visiting their doctor.
What does this mean for healthcare providers?
Consumers cling to the most accessible data they can get their hands on, whether it is accurate or not. It is imperative in this day and age to be a reliable source for your target audience. Additionally, 54 percent of patients are comfortable with their healthcare providers seeking advice online to help treat their condition. In these situations, having high-quality information readily available can help you establish credibility not only with consumers, but among industry colleagues, as well.
Consumers today want to develop brand relationships.
As shocking as this might sound, consumers WANT to be brand loyal. It makes their lives much easier to know who they can and cannot trust in industries they care about. It just so happens the way consumers today build these relationships is through their online interactions.
Being a part of the conversation is crucial when fighting to gain credibility as an expert in the healthcare field.
“Early adopters of social media in the health sector are not waiting for customers to come to them,” Ed Bennett of the University of Maryland Medical Center told HealthcareFinanceNews.com. “If you want to connect with people and be part of their community, you need to go where the community is and connect before you are actually needed.”
Nearly 2,337 hospitals in the United States have already bought into this truth in one way or another. Whether they are pushing out educational content through blog posts or commenting on Sally’s Facebook status about her daughter’s successful transplant: they are joining the conversation, making themselves known and most importantly trusted in the social stratosphere.
Consumers today are willing to share anything and everything.
Social media has completely transformed the way consumers view transparency. Whether you are a doctor, a patient or a parent, you have unlimited access to data on the Internet.
A recent study shows that 30 percent of adults are likely to share information about their health on social media sites with other patients, 47 percent with doctors, 43 percent with hospitals, 38 percent with a health insurance company and 32 percent with a drug company.
Social media opens the door to deeper and more productive discussions about diseases, symptoms and treatments. Podcasts and real-time updates of major catastrophic events and procedures through social media platforms are becoming a huge way to bolster the reach of a message. Social media also has become an outlet for patients and families to find support and guidance during what can be a terrifying and confusing time in their life. This degree of authenticity has never before been seen in healthcare.
As a result, 60 percent of doctors say social media improves the quality of care delivered to patients.
What does all of this mean for you? Simply put, a social media presence is a game-changer for healthcare providers throughout the industry. If you are readily available when consumers need answers and are looking for someone to trust, your business can only sky-rocket.
Mobile is all the rage with physicians today, even inspiring new lab coats to accommodate their multiple devices.
Three out of four physicians are using mobile apps at work, according to a 2014 report by MedData Group. There are now more than 10,000 apps available in the healthcare category, as physicians use mobile to save time, lower costs, and improve their quality of care.
With "three screen use" (tablets, smartphone and PCs) becoming the norm to help physician's research new technology and access specialty-quality content, we wanted to know what the most important app features are for physicians. We conducted a survey to find out which functionalities were most important to them when using mobile apps to access their Elsevier journal content. This infographic includes results from that survey.
Our goal was to create a survey that covered many specialties, Elsevier titles, and competitor analysis. We received over 160 responses from around the world, including users from Scotland, India, Egypt and the Ukraine. They identified four key areas for improvement, and we will use these results to benchmark performance over time. This survey also complimented qualitative data that was gathered from user interviews.
Summary of resultsPhysicians are 250 percent more likely to own a tablet than other consumers, and 76 percent of physicians use mobile at work to access work related content. They say it helps them save time, lower costs and generally offer improved quality of care.The top three uses of journal mobile apps are:The ability to read journals anytime, anywhere, with or without online access.The ability to view and share images, including the pinch and zoom feature to get a closer look.To access and download PDFs.Medical journals remain the No. 1 source of information for physicians, and apps bring new advantages to the table and enhance the journal experience. For instance, mobile apps allow the user to watch videos or "pinch and zoom" on an image or chart/graph for a better look. The app also allows easy access to archival issues and includes search to physicians can read up on a particular topic that is of interest to them. With mobile apps, physicians can take notes and highlight articles, then share those articles and notes with colleagues, either via email or through social media. The ability to add rich interactive content, such as videos is another major advantage over traditional paper formats.The infographic
We created this infographic to help physicians who haven't made the switch understand why their colleagues are using mobile—and for those who do to get the most out of their mobile app experience.
