Teenagers and Seniors Look to Social for Healthcare Answers

Teenagers and Seniors Look to Social for Healthcare Answers | Health Tech News | Scoop.it

When it comes to medical advice, “I do as much as I can to get it on their phones, because that is what they live and die for,” says Dr. Natasha Burgert, pediatrician from Kansas City, Missouri. Dr. Burgert is one of a growing number of physicians and medical centers relying on social media technologies to communicate with a sometimes-elusive group of patients—teenagers.

Nearly 25% of physicians use social media | Health Tech News | Scoop.it

Nearly one-fourth of physicians use social media on a daily basis to scan or explore medical information, according to a recently published study in the Journal of Medical Internet Research. They found that, whereas just 24% of physicians use social media to “scan or explore” on a daily basis for those reasons, that number jumps to 61% when measured on a weekly basis.

Inaccurate EHR info can spoil research, public health efforts

Inaccurate EHR info can spoil research, public health efforts | Health Tech News | Scoop.it

Data entered incorrectly in electronic health record systems can render not only that patient's record inaccurate, but also can adversely impact the results of research based on that data, according to a recent blog post by Anna Lembke, M.D., an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford's School of Medicine.

 

Lembke, writing on the school's blog Scope, points out that one of the benefits of EHRs is to use their information for "big data" purposes and that EHRs are being data mined to make "important decisions" about clinical care and health policy.

 

However, "if data-mining is based on inaccurate information, then the whole operation is a house of cards," she points out.

 

For example, one physician Lembke knows is required by his EHR to identify the ethnicity of all of his patients. Since he believes that this information isn't necessary, he quickly tackles that chore by listing them all as Albanian, since that is the first ethnic group listed on the EHR's pull down chart. As a result, more than 90 percent of his patients are identified as Albanian, even though they aren't, which falsely skews information about the population in his California county.

 

"Misinformation in electronic medical records, whether accidental or otherwise, has far-reaching consequences for patients and healthcare policy," Lembke warns.

EHR implementation: How common blunders can alienate your patients - amednews.com | Health Tech News | Scoop.it

Many practices are adopting an EHR for the first time, with various surveys finding 70% to 80% putting in systems, double the rate of three years ago. Almost every health IT implementation comes with hurdles and blunders. It can be frustrating when blunders affect the patient experience, but many are common and can be prevented by learning from the mistakes of other physicians.

Legislative Interference with the Patient–Physician Relationship — NEJM

Sounding Board from The New England Journal of Medicine — Legislative Interference with the Patient–Physician Relationship...

 

TMA's view: The ability of physicians to act in their patients’ best interests must not be compromised by outside – and sometimes competing – economic, political, and social pressures. Yet lawmakers and other nonphysicians progressively are inclined to delineate the details of the interaction between physicians and patients. Physicians will increasingly face nonphysicians’ attempts to mandate what tests, procedures, and treatments they must – or must not –provide to their patients.
