Measuring Influence in Healthcare

Measuring Influence in Healthcare | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

In yesterday’s blog on social media measurement we alluded to the notion of influence in social media. Influence can be measured in many ways and means many different things to different people. How you define it and what criteria you use ultimately stems from the business need to measure influence.

At Precise we have done a lot of work around the theme of influence, more specifically in the pharmaceutical sector.

As pharmaceutical companies become more patient-centric there is a growing business need to understand who the influential e-patients are, what they think and how large pharma companies can integrate their voice into their organisations. Our previous blog around this (Are empowered patients influencing doctors today), demonstrated how the internet and more recently social media had empowered patients, transforming them into a customer, who has the power to influence doctors’ actions, therefore justifying the need to truly understand them.

 

An example of this was our work to identify the most influential e-patients for a particular chronic condition. Our client, from the Patient Advocacy team, wanted to develop a symbiotic relationship with a small group of highly influential individuals. Prior to identifying these influencers it was very important to get buy in from the client on our criteria and methodology. Our criteria focused on Reach, Relevance, Resonance and Activity. By looking across a wide range of platforms, and applying a variety of research techniques including qualitative, desk, network and engagement research, we were able to identify 40 influential e-patients. We prepared a detailed biog for each patient for the client to get to know these individuals, recommending that our client engage with the top 10. Identifying individuals, and being able to follow their activity thereafter, makes measuring the success for any future campaign easier and more tangible, for instance you will know whether they have engaged with your content by sharing or commenting on it.

The criteria and methods used for the healthcare sector can be adapted for other sectors. The key is to agree upfront on the ‘how’, the ‘how many’, the ‘why’ you need to know influencers and what you are going to do once you know who they are. Remember, the closer social media researchers are to business needs, the more actionable the research and measurement becomes.

Avec Pacifi, prendre la température de bébé n’a jamais été aussi facile.

Avec Pacifi, prendre la température de bébé n’a jamais été aussi facile. | Health around the clock | Scoop.it
Avec Pacifi, prendre la température de bébé n’a jamais été aussi facile.

Pacifi est la première tétine connectée qui permet de contrôler la température d’un bébé.

La tétine connectée

L’entreprise, BlueMaestro va lancer d’ici quelques mois une tétine connectée. L’objet en question a été inventé par Kirstin Hancock afin de pouvoir surveiller facilement la température d’un bébé.

Contrôler la fièvre

La tétine, connectée à un smartphone, contrôle la température du bébé grâce à un capteur intégré dans le silicone. Elle transmet les données sur le téléphone ou la tablette grâce à la technologie bluetooth. De plus, lorsque la température devient trop élevée une alarme se déclenche afin d’alerter les parents.

Localiser bébé ou sa tétine

L’autre atout majeur de cette tétine est le capteur de proximité intégré à l’objet. Celui ci permet de localiser le bambin dans un rayon pouvant aller jusqu’à 50m. Si l’enfant va au delà de ce périmètre, préalablement défini par les parents, alors une alarme se déclenche sur le téléphone.

 

Cette fonctionnalité permet aussi de retrouver la tétine à l’aide d’une alarme qui se déclenche si  le bébé la perd.

Les avantages

Pacifi est doté d’une puce “Low Energy”, ce qui limite les risques pour le bébé tout en assurant une durée de vie d’environ un an.

De plus elle permet aux parents de suivre les effets du traitement sur le bébé ou encore de transmettre les données à un professionnel de la santé. « On perd facilement le fil des différentes prises et des médicaments administrés (…) Pacifi simplifie tout cela pour que les parents soient plus sereins pendant ces périodes de stress ». (K. Hancock)

 

Pacifi sera disponible à l’automne 2014 au prix de 25 livres et devrait rassurer les parents inquiets quand bébé aura de la fièvre.

Telehealth Changing Doctor Visits

Telehealth Changing Doctor Visits | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

With flu season upon us, healthcare providers and patients alike are gearing up for a busy time of year in the office. As office schedulers know, trying to accommodate all the patients a doctor needs to see in a given day is tricky enough without the added stress of flu season – when doctors are likely to need to see even more patients and hospitals will no doubt see an uptick in admissions and emergency room visits.

These challenges have developers and healthcare providers teaming up with patients to develop technology that could alleviate some of this stress. Using computers, smartphones, tablets and video conferencing programs like Skype, the race to create telehealth solutions is on. In healthcare, integrating telehealth faces some unique challenges regarding patient safety and security. In an era of notorious breaches, hacks and fraud, protecting patient information within telemedicine needs to begin at the outset, while the programs are still in development. Major consideration needs to be given to these features, in addition to usability and data management.

Challenges aside, virtual office visits are popping up in doctor’s offices nationwide. For nonurgent conditions, the use of video chatting programs like Skype can allow doctors and patients to connect without having to take the time necessary for an in-office appointment. Not only would the utilization of video appointments free up doctors, but their staff and office-based resources, too. There’s plenty of cost savings to be had if you’re cutting down on the number of patients you have to treat in the office – and for patients, not having to come in to the office when they’re feeling the sickest (and are most likely to be contagious) is not only good for their health, but for the population’s health too. That being said, of course there are times when video-based diagnosis wouldn’t be possible or advisable, which is why no office is likely to ever completely shift to telehealth, but in the case of a brief consult, video and internet based visits are no doubt the new frontier of patient care.

For practices that see a fair amount of younger patients, and for those that expect to be around long enough to treat the next generation of young adults, establishing an online presence for the practice isn’t just advisable, it’s necessary. More than any generation prior, millennials rely on their connectedness to expand their social and career horizons as well as their health. Apps that help users track progress toward health goals are booming, and management of chronic conditions like diabetes has already established a huge app market. If physicians tap into these data reservoirs, they will have real-time data on their patients right at their fingertips – especially in the younger population of patients who uses this technology proficiently.

Insurers, too, are aware of the telehealth trend and they are jumping at the chance to get their stake in the market. Many major insurers, like Cigna and Aetna, have already partnered with telehealth companies and are nurturing those relationships and developing technology alongside them. Beneficiaries of plans that have partnered with these companies will be among the first patients to have access to the new models of telehealth care.

But even for the uninsured, there are telehealth options that are available for a small fee and an internet connection. Online programs that assemble a group of credentialed doctors to chat with patients and provide a limited scope of answers to health questions are becoming more and more prominent, though it can be difficult for the average consumer to suss out which websites are legitimate and have vetted the doctor’s credentials. It is within this realm especially that HIPPA considerations are of the utmost importance. Online databases that store any patient information, even online question and answer sessions, must have strong encryption in order to comply with HIPAA regulations for patient privacy. Creating a safe environment such as this online is no small feat, and the future of telehealth and telemedicine will depend on the expertise of web developers and database managers who can create tightly sealed programs that are all but immune to outside interference. Of course, as the technology advances, so to do the skills of the hackers responsible for breaking into the systems. That’s why it’s vital that the developers stay ahead of the game and remain open to ever-evolving technology, especially in healthcare.

Those of us who work with patients on a regular basis know all too well that there often just isn’t enough time in the day to see everyone and meet their needs accordingly. Trying our hardest to accommodate everyone, most of us would welcome new technology that could allow us to be there for our patients in whatever way is best for them.

23 notable FDA clearances for digital health apps, devices so far this year | mobihealthnews

23 notable FDA clearances for digital health apps, devices so far this year | mobihealthnews | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

MobiHealthNews has been tracking FDA clearances for smartphone-connected medical devices and standalone apps for many years. So far 2014 has had its fair share — about two dozen digital health-related FDA clearances have been secured this year. Here’s a roundup:

New York City-based Kinsa Health received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Kinsa smart thermometer, which can be used, orally, under-arm, or rectally. The device transmits data to a companion smartphone app.

Samsung’s S Health app received 510(k) clearance from the FDA as a cardiology signal transmitter suggests that the clearance will allow S Health to interface with additional connected medical devices in the United States.

Waltham, Massachusetts-based EarlySense, which makes a passive and contactless bedside monitor that continuously measures respiration rate, heart rate and motion, has received a new FDA clearance for a sensor designed to work with not a bed, but a chair.

Alere Connect, formerly known as MedApps before it was acquired by Alere, announced FDA clearance for its latest home health hub, HomeLink.

A British company, Camntech, has received FDA clearance for a motion-tracking wristband and a wristworn electronic diary, likely for use in clinical trials. The devices are called the MotionWatch 8 and PRO-Diary. 

Carestream received FDA clearance for VUE Motion, a mobile radiology viewing and reading software that can be accessed on iPhone 4s, iPad 2, Galaxy Note and Galaxy S III mobile devices.

Remote patient monitoring company HealthInterlink received FDA 510(k) class II clearance for Beacon 2.0, a mobile-centric software system that integrates data from various home health devices. Beacon was previously classified as a class I medical device (MDDS).

The FDA disclosed 510(k) clearances for about a dozen digital health apps and devices during the second quarter of the year.

Propeller Health, formerly Asthmapolis, received FDA clearance for a platform that includes a new smart inhaler and is geared for patients with either asthma or COPD.

In June San Francisco-based Qardio received FDA 510(k) clearance for its connected blood pressure monitor, called QardioArm. The device went on sales for $99 on Qardio’s website and in select stores the following week.

New Zealand-based medical device company Nexus6 received FDA clearance for its smartphone-connected inhaler, SmartTouch, as a class II medical device. The new SmartTouch device has been cleared as a prescribable Metered Dose Inhaler (MDI) with a handful of intended uses: in clinical trials; in clinical practice, and for patient self-management.

Atlanta, Georgia-based health device maker CardioMEMS received FDA clearance for its CardioMEMS HF System, which monitors pulmonary artery pressure. The clearance was only for patients who have experienced New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III heart failure and have been hospitalized for heart failure in the previous year.

Alberta, Canada-based Calgary Scientific announced that it received a new FDA clearance for its diagnostic medical imaging software, called ResolutionMD, that enables providers to use the mobile software for all imaging modalities, except mammography.

McKesson secured clearance for a mobile medical app called McKesson Cardiology ECG Mobile. The web-based version of McKesson Cardiology ECG has been around for a few years and it enables clinicians to analyze and review ECG waveforms captured by a variety of vendors’ ECG devices.

InTouch Health received clearance for an app that would allow auscultation from digital stethoscopes in near-realtime. InTouch says that up until now digital stethoscopes have relied on store and forward technology, but InTouch’s CS App transmits live from a patient to a doctor at a remote location.

Reflectance Medical secured a 510(k) clearance for a tablet-based version of its Multi-Parameter Mobile CareGuide 3100 Oximeter system. The original device offers a “non-invasive assessment of hemoglobin oxygen saturation and pH in a region of skeletal muscle tissues beneath the oximeter sensor,” according to the company.

Vital Connect received FDA clearance for its Vital Connect Platform, which is the system that supports the company’s peel-and-stick, Bandaid-like vital signs monitor HeartPatch. The wearable device captures single lead ECG, heart rate, HRV, respiratory rate, skin temperature, body posturing (fall detection), steps, stress, and sleep staging. The company also received FDA clearance for the system’s use in the home.

Gauss Surgical announced that it has received de novo FDA clearance for an app that uses the iPad’s camera to estimate the amount of blood lost during a surgery and captured with surgical sponges. The system is called the Triton Fluid Management System.

Entra Health Systems, one of the earliest entrants into the smartphone-connected glucometer space, received clearance for the MyHealthPoint telemedicine manager, an online and mobile software offering that would collect and store biometric data from a variety of sources. It measures vitals including glucose, blood pressure, weight, body composition, activity, body temperature, ECG, and pulse oximetry.

So far, the third quarter of the year has produced a handful of FDA clearances for digital health devices and apps, too.

Another clinically-focused, activity tracking wearable has now been cleared by the FDA, this one aimed specifically at the monitoring and treatment of Parkinson’s disease. The Personal KinetiGraph, from Melbourne, Australia-based Global Kinetics Corporation, “offers comprehensive, automated reporting of a Parkinson’s disease patient’s movements so that neurologists and other physicians can more easily identify changes in movement symptoms to assist in decisions to optimize therapy,” according to the company.

Otoharmonics, a startup out of the Baker Group supported by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, received FDA 510(k) clearance for an iPad or iPod Touch application that treats a medical condition called tinnitus.

Australian company dorsaVi received FDA clearance for its ViMove sensor system. The sensor tracks movement as well as muscle activation, and is intended to be used in a clinical setting or with athletes in training.

AliveCor has received an additional FDA 510(k) clearance, this time for an algorithm that allows its smartphone ECG to detect atrial fibrillation — an abnormal heart rhythm that isn’t always detectable to the patient, but if left untreated can lead to stroke or congestive heart failure — with high accuracy.

New York City-based medical device maker Philosys received FDA 510(k) clearance this week for its smartphone-connected glucose meter, Gmate Smart.

La télémédecine doit miser sur la relation patient médecin pour s'imposer

La télémédecine doit miser sur la relation patient médecin pour s'imposer | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

Si la télémédecine simplifie l'accès aux services médicaux à distance aussi bien dans les pays développés que dans les pays émergents, une crainte a longtemps persisté quant aux barrières qu'elle dresse dans la relation patient-médecin. En effet, la multiplication des outils tend à automatiser les rapports, voire à les faire disparaître. On pense notamment à des applications telles que Gogohealth qui informatise les prescriptions pour éviter les rendez-vous médicaux en cas de symptômes minimes ou Mango Health, qui ludifie la prise de médicaments et informe sur les interactions médicamenteuses sans avoir à consulter son médecin. Mais ce que l'on peut retirer de ces initiatives, c'est qu'elles ne visent pas à remplacer le médecin en général. Elles visent à accélérer certains processus qui ne nécessitent pas forcément la prise d'un rendez vous. Reste que cela inquiète encore, ou rend frileux. 

Des médecins inquiets, des patients méfiants

Ainsi, l'année dernière PwC Global Healthcare dévoilait que seuls 27% des médecins proposaient à leurs patients d'utiliser des applications de e-santé. Et du côté des patients, le constat semble être le même : 39% des Américains sondés par Cisco se disent réticents quant à l'idée de partager leurs informations médicales personnelles sur internet. Mais la tendance semble toutefois se modifier : toujours dans le même rapport, on apprenais que trois quart des Américains préféreraient, s'ils avaient le choix, recourir à un service de télésanté. Et pour 70% d'entre eux, ce serait pour contacter leur propre médecin et ainsi renforcer leur relation. Il semblerait donc, si ces relations dématérialisées gardent du lien, qu'elles convainquent les individus comme le corps médical.

De futures applications plus tournées vers la communication

Ce constat est notamment valide en France. C'est en effet ce que semble l'indiquer un rapport de TNS Sofres pour LauMa Communication et Patients & Web, pour qui 58% des Français estiment que le web renforce leur échanges avec leur médecin. Chose qui devrait donc attirer dans les mois à venir les créateurs d'applications. C'est en tout cas déjà le cas pour des applications tels que Practice Fusion. En effet, bien que ses créateurs aient choisi de proposer un énième service de prise de rendez-vous médicaux en ligne, le site permet également aux cabinets médicaux de se créer un profil et d’interagir avec leurs patients en ligne, comme sur un réseau social. Une manière de toujours garder le contact et de renforcer les liens.

Who owns Healthcare data on Social Media? | Health around the clock | Scoop.it

Some patients wanted access over his or her clinic/ hospital records (EHR or paper based). Others, want total control over it. The rising trend of sharing healthcare data in social media fueled fears of healthcare data privacy breaches. In this age of smartphones and social media, who owns healthcare data?

What constitute healthcare data? Who owns it? Who has complete control over healthcare data?

Let me describe first the two general types of health data:(Wikipedia)

A personal health record, or PHR, is a health record where health data and information related to the care of a patient is maintained by the patient.

An electronic health record (EHR), or electronic medical record (EMR), is a systematic collection of electronic health information about an individual patient or population

Patients have total control over their PHRs.  Although an EHR maybe co-created by both the HCP and patient, it generally resides and is maintained within an institution such as a clinic or hospital.

In countries with paper based systems of recording healthcare data, the same type of healthcare data “ownership” may be inferred. The patients have total control of their personal health record while the healthcare institution, over hospital/clinic records.
