Patient Engagement Is A Physician-Patient Communication Challenge…Not A Health Information Technology Challenge

Patient Engagement Is A Physician-Patient Communication Challenge…Not A Health Information Technology Challenge | Health and Biomedical Informatics | Scoop.it

Physicians, hospitals and other providers are being misled by  industry pundits claiming that more health information technology (as in EMRs, PHRs, Smart Phone apps, and web portals) is the key to greater patient engagement.   It’s not.

 

If health information technology were all that was needed to “engage” patients then patient and member adoption rates of provider and payer web portals offering Personal Health Records (PHRs) and Electronic Health Records (EHRs) would not still be hovering around a disappointing 7% (with several notable exceptions Kaiser, Group Health and the VA).*

 

Part of the misunderstanding concerning the role of HIT comes from how the discussion about about patient engagement is being framed. According to the pundits, patient engagement is the physician or hospital’s responsibility… and like everything else these days…we can fix it if we just throw more technology at the problem. Can anyone say Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements?

Envisioning the future of health technology

Envisioning the future of health technology | Health and Biomedical Informatics | Scoop.it

Technology is the ultimate democratizing force in society. Over time, technology raises lowest common denominators by reducing costs and connecting people across the world. Medical technology is no exception to this trend: previously siloed repositories of information and expensive diagnostic methods are rapidly finding a global reach and enabling both patients and practitioners to make better use of information.

This visualization is an exercise in speculating about which individual technologies are likely to affect the scenario of health in the coming decades. Arranged in six broad areas, the forecast covers a multitude of research and developments that are likely to disrupt the future of healthcare.

The Promise of mHealth

The Promise of mHealth | Health and Biomedical Informatics | Scoop.it

Swedish research firm Berg Insight recently released a report finding that about 2.2 million people worldwide were using remote health monitoring devices by the end of 2011.


The Berg Insight report also found that the number of home health monitoring devices with embedded cellular connectivity increased from 420,000 in 2010 to 570,000 in 2011. The report predicts that the number of such devices will reach 2.47 million by 2016

Smartphones play leading role

 

A burgeoning market for healthcare peripherals and increasing smartphone processing power will result in the number of patients monitored by mobile networks to rise to 3 million by 2016, finds Juniper Research’s latest report on the mHealth sector.

 

Remote patient monitoring, using the smartphone as a hub, will also lower the cost of mHealth services by reducing the need for costly tailored devices

Digital health data will improve care and spur debate

Digital health data will improve care and spur debate | Health and Biomedical Informatics | Scoop.it

Francis Koster writes:

 

In 1854, Dr. John Snow started treating victims of cholera in London. More than 500 people died in the first week the disease surfaced. Desperate to figure out what was causing the epidemic, he worked round the clock for days to hand-draw a map containing the location of all the homes of the sick and dying, and he realized that everyone who was sick got their water from the same well. He persuaded local officials to remove the well pump handle, and the epidemic stopped.

 

Today, a high school student using Google Maps could probably draw that same map in a few minutes by combining death notice addresses and well locations readily available on the Internet.

 

Data mining of accumulating electronic health records across platforms will reframe the healthcare debate.
