How Facebook Is Transforming Science and Public Health | Wired Business | Wired.com | Doctors 2.0 & You | Scoop.it
Facebook has encompassed many things in its nine-year run. From a subtler version of a dating site to a gaming platform and a messaging hub.

 

 
Denise Silber's insight:

Title is exaggerated because FB use in healthcare has not yet scaled but it got people's attention. And the article stays on the surface, including examples that are not from healthcare. However, the fundamental point is there. There are indeed beyond what author notes already examples of images on Facebook contributing to medical diagnosis, of donors finding donors, doctors finding doctors, and that there's a big number of people waiting to participate in studies for medical good. However, it is somewhat disappointing from Wired...Hey guys, I'm here to write the longer version.

Health apps 'useless' says health app expert #mhealth #digitalhealth #doctors20

Health apps 'useless' says health app expert #mhealth #digitalhealth #doctors20 | Doctors 2.0 & You | Scoop.it
Amid claims that healthcare applications from Apple and Samsung will assist in propelling the health hardware industry to be worth $3 billion by 2019, an Australian expert in eHealth systems has described recent health apps as ‘useless’.
 
Denise Silber's insight:

The title of this article a bit misleading - Apps could be useful but they are not, according to the author, because the data is not connected to physicians. The author doesn't address what could be a different major challenge to apps- sustainability of the interest of the user, and what about the efficiency of the activity itself... (PatientView pointed this article out)

Two new studies make a case against too much medicine

 

 
Denise Silber's insight:

From "not enough" to "too much",  while modern medicine has singularly participated in the extension of our lifespans, there is always progress to be made. Oxford and BMJ are in the midst of a conference about this, hence the TIme magazine article. Hello to Doctors 2.0 & You speaker Tessa Richards from the BMJ who is involved in this subject.

The Woman With the Bionic Eye #digitalhealth #doctors20 | Doctors 2.0 & You | Scoop.it
What is it like to see again after years of blindness?
 
Denise Silber's insight:

This article from the Atlantic is of course well written and recommended reading, but the subtitle is a bit of an overpromise.  1) The person receiving the bionic eye is no longer totally without sight, but she is not seeing in the conventional definition. There is a learning curve. 2) And this technique will only work in certain cases.

PatientsLikeMe Develops Patient and Scientific Advisory Boards #doctors20 #hcsm  #digitalhealth | Doctors 2.0 & You | Scoop.it
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PatientsLikeMe has formed its first-ever, patient-only Team of Advisors to give feedback on research initiatives and create new standards that will help all researchers understand how to better engage with patients. The company also named three new members to the Scientific Advisory Board for Open Research Exchange (ORE), a PatientsLikeMe platform where researchers design, test and share new measures for diseases and health issues. ORE was created with support
 
Denise Silber's insight:

As the word spreads that the patient voice is to be respected, more conferences include or feature patients, and new actions like this one at PatientsLikeMe, or recently at BMJ occur. (Our Doctors 2.0 & You event, was born with the idea of bringing patients, physicians, and all stakeholders together without hierarchy.)
