How Google Confused Basketball Fans With Flu Patients #bigdata or #bigbusiness ;) ? #doctors20 | #DigitalHealth | Scoop.it

Denise Silber's insight:

Interesting piece in BusinessWeek.com providing what you need to know of an otherwise subscriber-only article in Science. First big example of bigdata error. Google's methods lead to inclusion of unrelated data and excess search (given that Google business model needs for there to be as much search as possible).

Emergency Rooms Are No Place for the Elderly

Emergency Rooms Are No Place for the Elderly | #DigitalHealth | Scoop.it
It’s hard to imagine a health care setting more ill suited for the elderly than today’s emergency rooms.
 
Denise Silber's insight:

If emergency rooms cannot handle complex cases, such as for the elderly, there is surely an opportunity for help through sensors, applications and other tools that can do multiple things at once.

Activity Trackers Don't Sense Everything #doctors20

Activity Trackers Don't Sense Everything #doctors20 | #DigitalHealth | Scoop.it
The devices can offer insight, but research suggests their accuracy is imperfect. And the larger issue of whether they improve long-term motivation to exercise more remains unresolved.

 

 
Denise Silber's insight:

Right in the middle of #SWSX I liked this  Wired Well article that brings perspective to activity trackers. What is their quality? What is our motivation to use them? We'll be talking lots about #quantified self at Doctors 2.0 & You Paris in June. You can "count" on it!

Marie Ennis-O'Connor's curator insight, March 4, 2014 6:21 PM

Not all healthcare conferences are created equal. Some conferences leave a lasting impact with stories that will stay with you as a fellow human being and insights that will empower you professionally. Other conferences can be just fine, but without anything particularly eventful. Many months later you can clearly remember the impactful moments from the great conferences, while rarely remembering the program of the uneventful. What determines this outcome? Do some conferences just have to be more boring than others, or can the outcome be greatly enhanced by how we design conferences?
