Health consumers have to demand their care providers ACT to take "full advantage of the information & communications technologies that have revolutionized other industries." Consumers must speak up and tell providers to get "up to speed" or lose their business. That attitude changed the auto industry; it can reform healthcare.

Controlling Social Media: Current Policy Trends in K-12 Education | For Perfect Health | Scoop.it

The continual connectivity and direct communication made possible through social media tools is what has essentially changed communication forever. Therefore, while I may have a specifically guided professional site, that site is present in the digital world and, as such, can be searched, linked, commented on, and posted–it can be “webbed” and that is precisely why new tools of communication are so powerful and also why their implications for teaching and learning are so amazing.

More eyeballs means better quality | For Perfect Health | Scoop.it
The quality of our IT systems for health-care is pretty darn poor, and I think most people agree on that.

 

It’s an axiom that the more people looking at a problem, the higher the probability of finding flaws and then finding solutions.

 

In Europe there is a drive to have health-care IT solutions go through a CE process, which more or less contains a lot of documentation requirements and change control. So by doing this, the CE process certifies a part of the actual process to produce the applications.
This isn’t very useful.

Mark.Nactrib's insight:

The quality of our IT systems for health-care is pretty darn poor, and I think most people agree on that. There have been calls for oversight and certification of applications to lessen the risk of failures and errors.

Compassion instead of technology will improve healthcare

Compassion instead of technology will improve healthcare | For Perfect Health | Scoop.it
Collaborative medicine goes far beyond applying the latest medical device technology, tablets, smartphones, video conferencing and social media in order to help improve healthcare outcomes.

 

Everyone has alternatives.
We are predisposed to select alternatives based on the similarity of our friends and colleagues to ourselves. It used to be called “Keeping up with the Joneses”.
A business developer searching for a solution to improve patient care, will be influenced by the fact that her friends and colleagues at work all have an iPhone, or an Android, or a Blackberry and sometimes all 3.

Mark.Nactrib's insight:

Being healthier and improving the success of treatment is much more (and perhaps much simpler) than applying the latest medical device technology, tablets, smartphones, video conferencing and social media.

It's always difficult to take a decision under conditions of partial and possibly incorrect data. That is a fact of life for doctors and healthcare providers. It's certainly a fact of life for information systems designers and developers.
Mark.Nactrib's insight:

More is not better…

 

The approach taken by the information technology industry is to collect as much data as possible, accumulate the data into big data warehouses and use powerful computing resources to automatically analyze and diagnose the data and arrive at a conclusion. This basically means deferring decisions until enough data has been collected.

 

Conversely, doctors in life-threatening situations, triage patients, take decisions and defer data collection to later points in time. There is the notion in the healthcare industry that more information is better (the approach taken by Google Health (now defunct) and Microsoft HealthVault.

The elephant in the room: medical issues.

The elephant in the room: medical issues. | For Perfect Health | Scoop.it

When a doctor records his encounter with a patient, he records only planning, tests, therapies, and follow-up, but not the main entity, the “issue” since there is no place for it.


The next doctor that sees the patient needs to read about the planning, tests, therapies, and follow-up and then mentally reverse-engineer the process to arrive at which issue is ongoing. Again, he manages the patient according to that issue, then records everything but the issue itself.

Mark.Nactrib's insight:

f you look at the bottom of my little mock-up, you’ll see tabs that bring you to the old medication list, chronological records (old style EHR), referrals, lab, etc. But in general, you’ll be working in the “issue worksheet” for most of the time, only occasionally looking up information through the other tabs.

3ders.org: 3D scanning reveals caterpillars turning into butterflies

3ders.org: 3D scanning reveals caterpillars turning into butterflies | For Perfect Health | Scoop.it
How does a caterpillar turn into a butterfly? Scientists from the University of Manchester have taken 3D images of a caterpillar and watched the whole process using micro-CT scanning technology.

 

Studies of model insects have greatly increased our understanding of animal development. Until now, studying metamorphosing insects has mainly involved dissection. But as you might know, dissection destroys the specimen. So researchers were never able to follow the full development of a creature. So researchers came up with a new idea - using micro-computed tomography, or micro-CT scanning to get images of the insects. Two teams of scientists, Tristan Rowe and Russell Garwood from the University of Manchester and Thomas Simonsen from London's Natural History Museum use high-resolution X-ray computed tomography (CT) to overcome these issues, and three-dimensionally image numerous lepidopteran pupae throughout their development.

 

The researchers scanned nine painted lady butterflies in their chrysalis, over a period of 16 days. The study has revealed — in three dimensions at various stages in development — a number of the organ systems, principally the tracheae and portions of the gut. The insect's guts change shape within the body, but never disappear entirely. It also demonstrates early and rapid development of the tracheae, which become visible in scans just 12 h after pupation.

 

"This suggests that there is less remodelling of the tracheal system than previously expected, and is methodologically important because the tracheal system is an often-understudied character system in development." Note the researchers in their paper.

 

Researchers say that this form of time-lapse CT-scanning they've developed could allow faster and more detailed developmental studies on a wider range of taxa than is presently possible.

 

However, there are a number of limitations when applying micro-CT to insects. A number of tissues, for example, the muscles and central nervous system — are not resolved in the current scans due to lack of contrast. And ionizing radiation causes tissue damage and thus risks altering the development of the specimen when repeatedly scanned.

This technique doesn't drastically revolutionise what we knew about metamorphosis, but it does provide some small insights and gives scientists new options for their experiments.

Mark.Nactrib's insight:

There is a reason why the PC industry and now tablets have been so successful – standards.

Open, vendor-neutral standards enable an Indian doctor to buy a computer made locally in Mumbai, use software written in Redmond or buy a tablet made in China, use software written in California and and consume content developed in London – all delivered using vendor-neutral Internet standards for inter-connectivity.

Today (May 2013), you can buy a $99 tablet, manufactured in China, that uses a chip designed in California, runs the Amazon Kindle App for Android, download and begin reading the Steve Jobs biography withing a few minutes. If tablets used the same monolithic, enterprise software approach of current healthcare IT, this would be science fiction.

Crime or Care: The Limit of Coercion

Crime or Care: The Limit of Coercion | For Perfect Health | Scoop.it
Dr. Jan Bruckner wonders if health care professionals should coerce people out of harm’s way and urge them to be good citizens and productive members of society? What is the limit of good health care and who should make that decision?
Mark.Nactrib's insight:

For the uninitiated, Strawberry Mansion might invoke an image of a magic castle, an elegant manor house, or luxurious living. People who know Philly have other ideas about this neighborhood. When I got the referral on Patient B, any illusion of elegance melted away. The referral described a 21 year old male with “5 GSW” (gunshot wounds) to both legs. His history said that he had been shot in the stomach when he was 18 years old and I would later learn that he fathered a son, spent 2 years in jail, and had been released home 2 weeks when he had been shot point-blank in both legs.

 

I had an address but I knew that no street sign would guide me to this street and no house numbers would identify the house. When I called the night before to arrange my visit, I requested that someone meet at the house and that someone guard my car during the session. Patient B grunted approval to these conditions. As I turned into the street I saw a large young man lounging on the marble steps of a row house. He raised his chin at me so I pulled up to the curb. He tiled his head towards the door so I let myself in.
