Somewhere between physicians and patients is the truth about digital health and patient engagement

Somewhere between physicians and patients is the truth about digital health and patient engagement | All about health | Scoop.it
bigstock-People-Talking-25125962Physicians say they prescribe apps far more than patients seem to think they do, if a survey carried out by Nielsen and commissioned by the Council of Accountable Physician Practices is anything to go by. MobiHealth News reported that Nielsen talked to 30,007 U.S. consumers and 626 U.S. physicians for the poll.More than 50 percent of physicians said they had recommended that patients use a fitness tracking app in the past 12 months. About 40 percent said they recommended wearables to their patients and 45 percent of doctors said they had recommended biometric tools to track things like sleep or heart rate. Yet there was a sharp contrast with consumer numbers, as MobiHealth News observed.

Asthma app moves from research to reality

Asthma app moves from research to reality | All about health | Scoop.it

One of the first apps developed through the Apple ResearchKit platform is now being used as a clinical tool. Asthma Health was one of five apps unveiled alongside Apple's launch of ResearchKit in March. The enterprise-facing app is a companion to Apple's HealthKit platform, which targets the consumer.

Patients' insights: "More recently, Bridges said that in reviewing how asthma patients were using the Asthma Help app at Icahn, he noticed that many were just taking out their iPhones during a visit to the doctor's office and showing their phone to the doctor. That prompted LifeMap to modify the app to enable users to just push a button, thereby launching a dashboard that displays all the pertinent information for the doctor."

Patients with Chronic Diseases Want Mobile Apps to Communicate with Their Docs

Patients with Chronic Diseases Want Mobile Apps to Communicate with Their Docs | All about health | Scoop.it

A new study released by mobile engagement provider Mobiquityexposes the “gap between patients’ demand for taking control of their own health and the accessibility or availability of digital and mobile tools when it comes to the management of chronic health conditions.”

 

The study revealed that one third of patients with chronic diseases don’t currently use mobile apps to manage their conditions, but would like to start.

 

In fact, the report summary notes, one in four respondents feel that “wearable devices are the way of the future.”

 

Interestingly, almost 50 percent of patients believe they should bring information/digital tools to their doctor – rather than the other way around – reinforcing their desire to be actively involved in managing their health rather than trust their doctors to exclusively manage it.

When asked about the most challenging aspects of managing their conditions, 26 percent of respondents agree that finding direct means of communicating with health professionals presents the biggest hurdle. Other top challenges include:

 

Monitoring changes in health (25%)Remembering to take medication (20%)Keeping up to date with medical advancements, treatments, etc. (18%)

 

“It’s clear the potential for digital solutions is vast: 40 percent of respondents feel mobile tools play an important role in overall healthcare,” the report summary reads.

HIPAA is Helpless to Protect Our mHealth App Privacy!

HIPAA is Helpless to Protect Our mHealth App Privacy! | All about health | Scoop.it

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, a landmark 1996 patient-privacy law, only covers patient information kept by health providers, insurers and data clearinghouses, as well as their business partners. At-home paternity tests fall outside the law’s purview. For that matter, so do wearables like Fitbit that measure steps and sleep, testing companies like 23andMe, and online repositories where individuals can store their health records.

 

Advances in technology offer patients ways to monitor their own health that were impossible until recently: Internet-connected scales to track their weight; electrodes attached to their iPhones to monitor heart rhythms; virtual file cabinets to store their medical records.


“Consumer-generated health information is proliferating,” FTC Commissioner Julie Brill said at a forum last year. But many users don’t realize that much of it is stored “outside of the HIPAA silo.”

The Role of Secure Messaging in the Digital Health Revolution

The Role of Secure Messaging in the Digital Health Revolution | All about health | Scoop.it

While the world focuses on holograms and telemedicine, secure communication technology is making what could arguably be considered the most profound impact on the healthcare system. It’s less Sci-Fi than robotic surgery. Less Silicon Valley than a virtual visit. But secure messaging technology is addressing the most fundamental need within the healthcare system: effective communication.

This sponsored report by DocHalo explains the rise of secure messaging in healthcare, outlining some of the significant research findings that support its efficacy in care coordination.

Thinking algorithm ready to take on conventional medicine

Thinking algorithm ready to take on conventional medicine | All about health | Scoop.it
An algorithm built by a San Francisco startup soon will begin using images archived at operating at imaging centers to teach itself to spot the signs of disease. If it succeeds, medicine will never be the same.

Deep learning, a branch of artificial intelligence, could be in the medical mainstream in months.

San Francisco software startup Enlitic is preparing to send software engineers to about 80 medical imaging centers in Australia and Asia.  These “forward deployed engineers,” as company founder Jeremy Howard calls them, will install a deep-learning algorithm on IT systems, called Picture Archiving and Communications (PAC) systems. Once on board, the algorithm will begin learning how to interpret medical images, scouring tens of thousands of archived medical images, learning how to identify the signs of disease in every imaging modality in the center: MRI, CT, ultrasound, x-ray and nuclear medicine.
