How Whatsapp is being used for Telemedicine

How Whatsapp is being used for Telemedicine | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

If something is all the rage, you’re likely to see everyone falling over themselves to get their hands on it. Just look at the Scramble for Africa as an example. Fast forward to 2015 and it’s now the Scramble for Telemedicine. In Zimbabwe, several imperial corporate entities are competing against each other for a piece of this profitable pie.

Econet launched its dial doctor service. NetOne are also following suit. Some of these initiatives, like the NetOne service, are still in the pilot phases and have not yet broken through to  become nationwide or mainstream phenomenon.

This kind of gives the impression that Telemedicine is nonexistent in Zimbabwe.  However, I was recently surprised to discover that Telemedicine is very much alive and well, on a nationwide scale too! This may be shocking news but the most widely used channel for telemedicine may actually be WhatsApp.

WhatsApp has crept its way into aspects of our everyday life. It’s mentioned in songs, quoted in the news, talked about on the Mai Chisamba show and even cited as principal evidence in a criminal court case. It is responsible for many a marriage and ironically many a divorce. It’s therefore not surprising that doctors are finding it useful too.

Too simple you may be thinking, but Telemedicine has a broader definition that just paid doctor consultation over the phone. The World Health Organization defines it as

“The delivery of health care services, where distance is a critical factor, by all health care professionals using information and communication technologies for the exchange of valid information for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease and injuries, research and evaluation, and for the continuing education of health care providers, all in the interests of advancing the health of individuals and their communities”.

Based on that, one can begin to appreciate how WhatsApp is being used to improve patient outcomes by increasing access to care and medical information. Here are some of the ways it’s satisfying that broad definition.

1. WhatsApp groups-. Doctors in a firm are using it to remain connected through groups which enable better communication and coordination among team members. This is bringing efficiency in carrying out duties, which translates to better patient outcomes.

2. Within WhatsApp groups- Grand rounds are being conducted in which doctors exchange ideas about a particular case. These are meant to gather various opinions of possible diagnoses, treatment plans, and outcomes. Images of X-rays are being shared for discussion.

3. At the point of care – WhatsApp is being used for quick peer consultation to check a diagnosis or correct drug dosages. This is something that already established apps like Medscape or Epocrates can do. However, quick advice from a colleague just does it better. The health information apps managed to bring entire medical libraries into the palm of our hands, but the information doesn’t come in a quick ready to use format. That is where being readily connected to colleagues via WhatsApp becomes priceless.

4. WhatsApp is being employed in the decentralization of access to health particularly for remote areas where specialist services are nonexistent. There is a brilliant psychiatrist based in Harare who is using WhatsApp to communicate with doctors working in the peripheral hospitals advising them on the management of their difficult cases.

5. The recent nationwide strike by doctors was well orchestrated via WhatsApp! Being a social network, it is enabling medical teams to bond as they share both lighter and darker moments with each other. In a way, WhatsApp is already doing the job that apps like Doximity are being designed to do; to be a social network for doctors.

WhatsApp is saving lives. Being the only doctor on call, I was once confronted with a patient who was battling severe snake bite poisoning. Through a WhatsApp group, I managed to quickly consult several, distant colleagues who collectively gave me the information I needed to save his life.

WhatsApp has the potential to break down barriers between health personnel working in different departments for the building of the all important health care team. It has the potential to connect doctors to their patients and even a patient to other patients in a health support network.

Sounds too simple doesn’t it? Or it is complex through its simplicity? Whatever it is, Telemedicine seems to be alive and well in Zimbabwe.

Four top trends in healthcare data analysis

Four top trends in healthcare data analysis | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

HOSPITALS and healthcare service providers worldwide are focusing on using data to improve efficiency and provide better medical care to patients.
 
Innovations such as centralised record-keeping systems allow clinics and hospital networks to access and share treatment records such as diagnoses, treatment plans, scans and test results, so that doctors can better assess each case.
 
Data is also utilised in hospital administration to schedule equipment maintenance and upkeep, plan staff schedules, etc.
 
Hospitals also tap on patient satisfaction survey data to improve quality of service and track the progress of current initiatives.
 
The amount of data being gathered and shared within a hospital can be massive. Hospitals need to properly understand and interpret their data in order to make effective decisions that can improve quality of care and best manage resources.
 
Here is how you can leverage on the four top trends in healthcare data analysis today:
 
1) Implement dashboards on hospital floors
 
Hospitals want to provide patients with a positive experience, and offering efficient and effective care is crucial. One way to improve patient experience is minimising waiting time, and making effective use of time during the patient’s stay or visit to a hospital.
 
Hospitals can optimise the flow of patients through their hospital systems by providing select staff – doctors, nurses, administrators and shift coordinators – with secure access to dashboards.
 
These dashboards can offer the staff with access to real-time data, number of patients coming in through A&E (accidents and emergencies), waiting time at triage, bed availability in the wards, and the queue at the pharmacy.
 
These dashboards can also be assigned based on user profiles so that assignment or role-based views can be set. This helps to provide useful information to the right staff and manage appropriate access to private health information.
 
All this real-time information allows hospital staff to determine bottlenecks and assign resources accordingly to reduce waiting times.
 
These dashboards can also give doctors or nurses secure access to a patient’s information, allowing them to quickly assess the patient and make better informed decisions, and make treatment plans based on the patient’s medical history.
 
2) Finding a ‘single source of truth’

 

Data collected across the hospital can come from multiple sources. For example, a hospital’s financial data may be on sitting in one platform while its medical inventory data on another.
 
This means that hospital staff will need to access different platforms in order to access the information.
 
It would be much more effective if hospitals are to adopt a single business intelligence and data analytics solution that allows users to blend the data coming from different sources.
 
This way, they can merge the data and conclude at a ‘single source of truth.’ This approach allows all key decision-makers to base their decisions on a centralised platform where all crucial information is available.
 
The standardisation also means that staff need only be trained on the use of business intelligence tool.
 
Additionally, it is important for hospitals to choose a platform that is easy to learn and use, as staff will have varying skill level and technological competency.
 
3) Centre on the patient
 
Taking a patient-centered view can help doctors and medical care professionals to better coordinate care. This leads to reduced costs, improved quality of care and better outcomes.
 
One way to do this is to provide staff with a visual dashboard that can offer fast insights into a patient’s previous treatment records and medical history. Data analytics tools can also be used to provide medical staff with information on similar cases, treatment plans and outcomes, or any other information that can help them determine the best course of action.
 
Such a system would require a business intelligence solution that can access disparate data, often from varying sources, without writing back to the original source.
 
Medical data can be complex and varied. Imagine accessing data like CT scans, MRIs, X-rays, prescription medicine, blood test results, surgery outcomes, etc. all from a single system.
 
It is important to select an analytics tool that can quickly absorb high-level information, while also providing the option of accessing more detailed data.
 
4) Embrace healthcare’s social side

           

Social medicine is the new frontier in healthcare. Today, patients are increasingly expecting to interact with their care providers on their social platform of choice.
 
For healthcare service providers, social media is another channel where they need to pay attention to if they want to enhance patient experience. It is also a cost-effective way to help improve patients’ experience and their impression of the hospital.
 
Social media is especially useful for behavioural health applications, such as encouraging people to lead an active lifestyle and keep to healthy diet habits.
 
For example, the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and other hospitals in Singapore have been actively encouraging people to lead a healthy lifestyle, promoting healthcare forums that they are organising, etc. on their Facebook pages.
 
Interactions over social media can offer healthcare service providers with valuable data that helps them gain insights into patients and the public’s health concerns and challenges.
 
Healthcare service providers can tap on social media to conduct surveys, get feedback, and better understand their target audience. They can then use this information to schedule relevant posts or tweets to address specific issues or queries.
 
Healthcare service providers can select an analytics solution that can link to social media data with transactional data already stored in the system to identify the most influential channels. The solution should be able to aggregate and extract data when it makes sense for more efficient analysis.
 
A flexible tool with a robust roadmap and strong commitment to improvement is also important as social media landscape is probably one of the fastest changing one, and a popular platform today may be abandoned by users in a matter of months.
 
The right analytics tool also means one that can adapt to change fast.
 
Data-based approach
 
The use of data analytics will become even more prevalent in the healthcare industry as service providers continue to drive towards efficient operations, patient satisfaction and quality care.
 
It is important for hospitals to select suitable data analytic platforms that can best suit their requirements.
 
Effective use of data analytics tools means empowering caregivers. It also means taking a data-backed, fact based approach to medical and patient care.

Les patients insuffisants cardiaques télésurveillés approuvent l'individualisation du suivi | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

En Midi-Pyrénées, 592 patients souffrant d'insuffisance cardiaque, sur un total prévu de 870, sont désormais télésurveillés dans le cadre du projet Optimisation de la surveillance ambulatoire des insuffisants cardiaques par télécardiologie (Osicat), lancé en mai 2013. "Les inclusions seront finies avant la fin de l'année", souligne le Pr Michel Galinier, cardiologue au CHU de Toulouse et l'un des instigateurs de l'étude. Le calendrier établi devrait donc être respecté. Les participants doivent être suivis pendant 18 mois, ainsi "les premiers résultats sont attendus pour le début de l'année 2017", annonce-t-il. L'objectif est d'évaluer l'apport médical et économique de ce programme avant son éventuelle généralisation.
