‘Smart bandage’ detects bed sores before they are visible to doctors

‘Smart bandage’ detects bed sores before they are visible to doctors | e-Pharma ,e-Health & Social Media | Scoop.it
SOURCE March 17, 2015 (Nanowerk News) Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, are developing a new type of bandage that does far more than stanch the bleeding from a paper cut or scraped knee. Thanks to advances in flexible electronics, the researchers, in collaboration with colleagues at UC San Francisco, have created a new "smart bandage" that uses electrical currents to detect early tissue damage from pressure ulcers, or bedsores, before they can be seen by human eyes - and while recovery is still possible. "We set out to create a type of bandage that could detect bedsores as they are forming, before the damage reaches the surface of the skin," said Michel Maharbiz, a UC Berkeley associate professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences and head of the smart-bandage project. "We can imagine this being carried by a nurse for spot-checking target areas on a patient, or it could be incorporated into a wound dressing to regularly monitor how it's healing."The

Silicon Valley Turns Smartphones Into Mobile Health Clinics

Silicon Valley Turns Smartphones Into Mobile Health Clinics | e-Pharma ,e-Health & Social Media | Scoop.it

Silicon Valley companies are creating more mobile health apps and getting more financial backing than ever before. You can now use your phone to help diagnose an ear infection, and even monitor a diabetic child's blood sugar.


"It's the next big thing, no question about it,” Vital Connect CEO Nersi Nazari said of mobile health. Vital Connect in Campbell just launched the HealthPatch MD. It’s a patch that sticks onto the skin and provides constant heart monitoring and tracks pulse, respiratory rate, and other health metrics. It’s the first device of its kind and available for doctors or loved ones to track someone with a heart condition.

How to find new evidence to back digital health initiatives

How to find new evidence to back digital health initiatives | e-Pharma ,e-Health & Social Media | Scoop.it
The development of clinical evidence proving the effectiveness of various digital health systems and devices lags well behind the hype and adoption that surrounds the digital space, many health technology experts agree. More and better research would ensure that providers are making evidence-based decisions, and not hastily wasting money or harming patient care, they reason.

Using Twitter to study pharmaceutical drug side effects

Using Twitter to study pharmaceutical drug side effects | e-Pharma ,e-Health & Social Media | Scoop.it

Recent data from the CDC has indicated that 50% of Americans are taking one prescription drug, and 10% are on 4 or more prescribed medications as well. Taking into consideration the aging population and the movement towards primary prevention with medications, it is likely a larger shift will occur in the next decade.

 

Coupled with this is the increasingly large role of social media in the daily lives of the social schema of many Americans — and we may have a new form of Drug Surveillance. It comes as no surprise that many patients report their daily status of health online, and include their experiences with their medications as well. But recent data has come out from researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital that Twitter alone could be a treasure trove of data.

Keith McGuinness's curator insight, September 15, 2014 7:21 PM

This is where app developers need to think more like like clinicians and patients.  Weight loss requires only an interruption of habits; weighing less requires new habitsAn app that helps people weigh less will produce outcomes like better blood pressure control and better blood glucose control. This would be a mobile behavioral health (mbHealth) app.  Clinicians, patients and consumers would flock to it.


But measuring a quantitative health outcome derived from the use of a behavior change app is tricky, because an app's effectiveness depends on the UX and UX is a moving target that depends of ever-changing technology and a measure of art.

Why mHealth and Patient Engagement are Critical to the Future of Healthcare

Why mHealth and Patient Engagement are Critical to the Future of Healthcare | e-Pharma ,e-Health & Social Media | Scoop.it

In the health IT industry, a lot of the focus on mobile health (mHealth) lies on the provider side—specifically how digital health tools are helping clinicians be more “mobile” within their workflows. In fact, this was precisely what HCI Senior Contributing Editor David Raths wrote about in this year’s Top Ten Tech Trends. This perspective is undoubtedly exciting and fascinating, and worth a read if you haven’t seen it already. But there’s another angle to mobile computing that has perked my interest lately—that being the care management side to mobile health tools, and how patients, in addition to providers, are using these technologies to improve their care.

Are Online Platforms Killing Wellness?

I have high hopes for technology in general, and well conceived, expertly implemented wellness platforms in particular. But until we accept the tools for what they are, not the panacea to make all wellness management dreams come true, we’ll continue to miss out on the real opportunities to help people improve health and quality of life.

Unless we measure health outcomes continuously (we can do this now), how do we know whether our wellness platforms or apps advance targeted health outcomes.  It is quite possible today that these "tools" distract the consumer from a more effective course of action?

If this is what facebook's healthcare initiative is, it isn't going to work

If this is what facebook's healthcare initiative is, it isn't going to work | e-Pharma ,e-Health & Social Media | Scoop.it

You may have seen a sketchy news item on the feeds this morning about facebook’s possible plan to make something approximating to a structured intervention into the millions of healthcare discussions that take place on its platform every day.

 

Currently, the social behemoth is very much on the outside of these discussions.

 

However, it would appear that facebook would like to turn this state of affairs around and become an active participant in the innumerable, vibrant interactions addressing every aspect of health in diverse languages across geographies on its platform.

 On the basis of what we know so far, it isn't going to work.
