The FDA reportedly told Apple in December that a wearable with a glucometer would be classified as a medical device and face regulation if it was marketed to diabetics as the ultimate tool for tracking glucose. However, if that same wearable were only intended to be used to measure glucose for nutrition, it would not be regulated.

Multi Atlas-Based Segmentation with Data Driven Refinement

The VISCERAL project organizes a benchmark to compare approaches for organ segmentation in big data. A fully–automatic segmentation method using the VISCERAL data set is proposed in this paper. It incorporates both the local contrast of the image using an intensity feature as well as atlas probabilistic information to compute the definite labelling of the structure of interest. The usefulness of the new intensity feature is evaluated using contrast–enhanced CT images of the trunk.

The growing influence of social media in healthcare

The growing influence of social media in healthcare | eHealth in Switzerland | Scoop.it

Social media has established itself as a powerful channel for voices in the NHS, whether it is to create professional networks, raise safety concerns or seek support in self-management of conditions. Participation is no longer optional, writes Claire Read

A recent episode of the BBC documentary series Business Boomers focused on the amazing growth of Amazon, tracking its development from garage-based small business to multinational giant.

It was filled with an array of interesting tidbits but arguably the most memorable was a clip from a 1994 episode ofTomorrow’s World.

In it, the earnest presenter - surrounded by a collection of very bulky and very beige computers - explained how “something called the internet” was set to revolutionise the availability of information.

It was a stark reminder of just how far digital communication has come in a short time; a reminder that is particularly important within healthcare.

A digital age

Those the NHS is recruiting today - the leaders of tomorrow - will never have known a world without the internet.

Paediatric and young adult patients will fall into the same category. And soon enough we will have a generation not only of “digital natives” but of social media natives.

‘Online networks seem likely to offer solutions to many of the current communication challenges the health service is facing’

It all means healthcare practitioners and organisations are likely to have no choice but to engage with social media. It is where their patients and colleagues will expect to have conversations, and so not to be there would simply not be sustainable.

The growing influence of social media in healthcare is associated with the sustainability of the NHS in a much broader sense, however.

Online networks seem likely to offer solutions to many of the current communication challenges the health service is facing, and provide an extremely positive reason for the growing influence of social media in healthcare.

 

Take sharing concerns. In the aftermath of the Francis report, much attention has been focused on ensuring staff can speak out without fear and safe in the knowledge that their worries will be suitably investigated.

Twitter provides a simple way to encourage this sort of open environment: a nurse tweeting his or her chief executive a concern seems far more transparent than other potential methods. It is no coincidence that Twitter has provided a natural home for the Nursing Times Speaking Out Safely campaign.

Online connections

There is also frequent talk of the importance of the NHS sharing knowledge and innovation more effectively. Here too social media networks are making a tremendous difference, allowing healthcare professionals to build connections both inside and outside their own organisations.

WeNurses is a tremendous example of this, bringing together nurses from across the world in Twitter conversations. Knowledge and views are being shared, and in some instances huge and valuable professional networks being built.

Let us not fall into the trap of thinking it is only healthcare professionals who are serving to increase the influence of social media in the NHS, however.

‘Patients have been the trailblazers, making electronic connections with fellow sufferers of a condition and coming together to raise concerns about standards of treatments’

In many ways, it is patients who have been the trailblazers (as our list of Social Media Pioneersdemonstrates). They began by making electronic connections with fellow sufferers of a condition, and continued by coming together to raise concerns about the standards of treatments at particular institutions.

Surely the next step will be for those working within the health service to fully employ social media to converse with service users?

This again will address many of the communication challenges currently being placed in front of health service managers: the question of how to build openness and a genuine dialogue with patients that is based on listening.

Twenty years ago, the internet was the new development. Few could now imagine our lives without it. It seems likely that, in 20 years time, we will be saying the same thing about social media. It has already influenced the health service - but it is only just getting started

Retraite alpine à Evolène pour des chercheurs en informatique

Après quatre ans de travaux autour de l’analyse et de la recherche d’informations médicales, les partenaires du projet de recherche Khresmoi se sont retrouvés du 2 au 4 juillet à Evolène pour imaginer les suites à donner à ce grand projet de recherche. Financé à hauteur de huit millions d’euros par la communauté européenne, Khresmoi est coordonné par Henning Müller, professeur à l’Institut informatique de gestion de la HES-SO Valais-Wallis. Les résultats du projet ont de bonnes chances d’être repris par des partenaires industriels et des associations. Et il n’est pas utopique de rêver à la création d’une start-up en Valais!

A l’occasion de la Keynote très attendue d’Apple lors de la WWDC de juin, la firme de Cupertino a présenté son nouveau système d’exploitation pour mobile iOS 8 qui comprend un nombre important de nouveautés. A l’heure où j’écris cette chronique, Apple étant toujours fidèle à elle-même, personne ne connaît encore la date de sortie du nouvel iOS 8.

 

Cependant, je ne pouvais pas passer à côté d’une des nouveautés d’iOS 8 qui surfe sur le Big Data dans le domaine de la santé : l’application Health, qui sera installée par défaut sur les iPhone, iPod Touch ou encore iPad via le nouveau OS.

Les données qui touchent à la santé sont de plus en plus nombreuses et prennent de plus en plus d’importance. Elles doivent être synthétisées et simplifiées pour qu’elles soient comprises et utilisées par la population, par exemple via des applications mobiles. C’est ainsi que le smartphone pourrait devenir rapidement un véritable «hub» pour traiter et recevoir toutes les informations santé des individus. Quoi qu’il arrive et malgré toutes les opportunités offertes par les nouvelles technologies et la santé numérique, le patient doit rester au centre des démarches. Tels sont les principaux constats qui sont ressortis de la 2e édition de la journée e-health, qui a eu lieu vendredi dernier au TechnoArk de Sierre.
