Globalization and Health | A call for a moratorium on the .health generic top-level domain: preventing the commercialization and exclusive control of online health information

In just a few weeks, the Internet could be expanded to include a new .health generic top-level domain name run by a for-profit company with virtually no public health credentials - unless the international community intervenes immediately. This matters to the future of global public health as the “Health Internet” has begun to emerge as the predominant source of health information for consumers and patients. Despite this increasing use and reliance on online health information that may have inadequate quality or reliability, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) recently announced it intends to move forward with an auction to award the exclusive, 10 year rights to the .health generic top-level domain name. This decision is being made over the protests of the World Medical Association, World Health Organization, and other stakeholders, who have called for a suspension or delay until key questions can be resolved. However, rather than engage in constructive dialogue with the public health community over its concerns, ICANN chose the International Chamber of Commerce—a business lobbying group for industries to adjudicate the .health concerns. This has resulted in a rejection of challenges filed by ICANN’s own independent watchdog and others, such that ICANN’s Board decided in June 2014 that there are “no noted objections to move forward” in auctioning the .health generic top-level domain name to the highest bidder before the end of the year. This follows ICANN’s award of several other health-related generic top-level domain names that have been unsuccessfully contested. In response, we call for an immediate moratorium/suspension of the ICANN award/auction process in order to provide the international public health community time to ensure the proper management and governance of health information online.

Medical device hack-attack issues resurface

Three medical-device makers have been identified by unnamed sources as having their products under review by an arm of the Homeland Security Department for possible cybersecurity vulnerabilities, according to a published report. But for the feds, providers and the devicemakers, the issue of vulnerabilities in medical devices is not a new one, industry experts say.

Nancy Gertrudiz's insight:

One of the ten recommendations set by the Commission encourages “Innovation through information and communication technologies (ICT) for accountability”.  The International Telecommunication Union along with the World Health Organization and the Innovation Working Group are partners in supporting this recommendation.

 

Recommendation 3 of the CoIA on eHealth and innovation:
“By 2015, all countries in the Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health have integrated the use of Information and Communication Technologies in their national health information systems and health infrastructure.”

Innovative Technologies | USAID ASSIST Project

Innovative Technologies | USAID ASSIST Project | El pulso de la eSalud | Scoop.it
Innovative technologies like mobile devices, electronic medical records, and interventions based on human performance technology are increasingly being deployed to respond to health care delivery challenges in low-resource settings. To ensure that technologies achieve the greatest impact, they must be designed to respond to important system gaps and their introduction should be grounded in strategies that strengthen essential health system functions like health information systems, service delivery, and provider performance.






The USAID ASSIST Project is testing and evaluating how mHealth and eHealth can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of care and support processes, enhance the performance of human resources for health, and improve coordination and communication between health system levels and with clients.  The project’s Framework for Leveraging mHealth and eHealth to Strengthen Health Systems highlights critical system and quality gaps and describes how improvement science can enhance the development and testing of technologies to improve information systems and data, health workforce management, service delivery, and supply chain management

New Algorithms Search for Signs of Consciousness in Brain Injury Patients | WIRED | El pulso de la eSalud | Scoop.it
After a severe brain injury, some people remain in a vegetative or minimally conscious state, unable to speak or move intentionally, and apparently unaware of the world around them. But in recent years, neuroscientists have found signs that some of these patients may still be conscious, at least to a degree. Now researchers have used a branch of mathematics called graph theory to search for neural signatures of consciousness.
