Adorable Photos of Animals and Their Mini-Me's | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

As if cats weren't popular enough on the internet, redditor SteveV91 has uploaded some of the most adorable photos of the house pets hanging out with their nearly identical kittens. Whether simply lounging around or clawing at hard-to-reach places, the kittens are literal copycats of their larger counterparts. The series of seriously cute photos are also joined by images of other animals with their miniature companions. Each pair is sweetly interacting with or mimicking the other. So cute!

75 Percent of Patients Want Digital Health Services, Survey

75 Percent of Patients Want Digital Health Services, Survey | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

According to a survey of thousands of patients in Germany, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, the adoption of digital health services remains low because existing services are either low quality or not meeting patients’ needs. 

 

Some executives in healthcare believe that, due to the sensitive nature of medical care, patients don’t want to use digital services except in a few specific situations; decision makers often cite data that point to relatively low usage of digital healthcare services In fact, the results of our survey reveal something quite different.

 

The reason patients are slow to adopt digital healthcare is primarily because existing services don’t meet their needs or because they are of poor quality.”

 

 

One of the more common myths about healthcare is that only younger generations want to use digital services. The survey also shows that patients from all age groups are more than willing to use digital services for healthcare. In fact, older patients (those over 50) want digital healthcare services nearly as much as the younger generation.

 

The result from the latest survey also indicates that the enthusiasm for mobile health has perhaps waned a bit over the years. Mobile health—the practice of healthcare supported by mobile devices—is often considered as the future of digital services in healthcare.

How Twitter can be used to address specific health issues

How Twitter can be used to address specific health issues | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

A new study led by Jenine K. Harris, PhD, examined the use of the hashtag #childhoodobesity in tweets to track Twitter conversations about the issue of overweight kids.

 

The study noted that conversations involving childhood obesity on Twitter don't often include comments from representatives of government and public health organizations that likely have evidence relating to how best to approach this issue. The authors think maybe they should.

 

Twitter use is growing nationwide. In its 2014 Twitter update, the Pew Research Center found that Twitter is used more by those in lower-income groups, which traditionally are more difficult to reach with health information.

 

While younger Americans also are more likely to use Twitter, it is used equally across education groups and is used more by non-white Americans than whites.

 

This, Harris said, is one of the reasons Twitter is an avenue that the academic and government sources with accurate health information should consider taking advantage of in order to reach a wide variety of people.

 

"I think public health so far doesn't have a great game plan for using social media, we're still laying the foundation for that," she said. "We're still learning what works.

 

"Public health communities, politicians, and government sources -- people who really know what works -- should join in the conversation. Then we might be able to make an impact," she said.
