Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? - La Leva di Archimede (ENG)

Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? - La Leva di Archimede (ENG) | Health & Wellbeing | Scoop.it

For millennia, humans have survived and, absent war, famine, or other living conditions or practices that favor disease, thrived before the first 'vaccine' was introduced.

 

Moreover, the use of vaccination to provide disease protection is based on a theory, "the germ theory of disease", that does not explain, nor, until very recently, address the reality that human life depends upon our symbiotic co-existence with a variety of microbial organisms, some of which can also appear to be 'pathogenic' when, for whatever reasons, a given human body is 'sick'.

 

Unfortunately, to this day, the developers of vaccines do not understand exactly how the human immune system functions...

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, May 2, 2013 11:34 AM

This is an interesting paper by Paul King, PhD 

Analytical Chemist, who is the Science Advisor to, and the current Secretary for, the Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs. Dr. King documents, quoting the laws, that vaccines are not safe as they should be.

 

The US FDA is relinquent in their duty of assuring vaccine safety and the CDC compounds the problem by recommending wholesale vaccination.

Tips for integrating health apps and EHRs

Tips for integrating health apps and EHRs | Health & Wellbeing | Scoop.it

1. The integration must take into account each user’s day-to-day life and workflow, including patients, providers, IT staff, and additional caregivers. Some users will need access to a greater depth of information, while for others design and usability will be paramount.

 

2. The design should be interoperable and support the integration of multiple MITs into a single EHR. In particular, developers should make sure to eliminate redundancies between the systems, where app users and EHR users might enter the same data into different fields.

 

3. Multiple environments have to be secure, but their security can’t keep them from interacting with each other. Stakeholders WellDoc interviewed reported problems with competing firewalls in implementing the integration.

 

4. Both halves of the integration, but especially the patient-facing app, should work natively on as many mobile devices as possible. Patients are most likely to use a system that allows them to continue using their device.

 

5. The mobile health offering is subject to a limitation already standard for EHR apps: it must be able to run even when network connectivity is sparse or intermittent, as is sometimes the case in large hospital complexes.

 

6. It’s crucial to have a support team in place familiar with the technology  to help acquaint users with it.

 

7. Make sure the two systems adhere to common standards. Not only data interchange standards like HL7, but also making sure that measurements in both systems use the same units. If lab-collected blood glucose data in the EHR and patient-collected blood glucose data have the same unit, but one is potentially more accurate, the integrated system should easily identify and distinguish the two.

 

8. The team working on an integration should be ready for a more complex process than anticipated. A clear vision, good communication, and a steering committee are important for anyone attempting to integrate a mobile heath offering and an EHR.

Leverage user experience through social networking to improve health adherence

Leverage user experience through social networking to improve health adherence | Health & Wellbeing | Scoop.it

Patient adherence is an important factor in improving health outcomes. However, as one of the causes of increasing population with chronic diseases, low adherence has become a major health care issue globally. Often, due to deferred benefits of treatment or lifestyle recommendations, many fail to adhere to their treatment regimen or health plans given by care providers until their conditions deteriorate. As poor adherence remains a significant yet inadequately addressed problem of severe health issues, it is critical to create effective interventions as part of the solutions.

 

Previous studies have suggested that peer supports be effective to improve adherence, and social cognitive theories have indicated that personal realization and confidence enhanced through entertaining gaming elements could encourage behavior change. To understand how different motivation factors affect user experience through social networking, a health care adherence website with built-in behavior analyses was constructed to conduct experiments. Users' health adherence levels can be reported to the website and shared among consenting social members for discussion or competition. Key design and development components are illustrated through the case study, including a social gaming and learning portal, an engineering approach to supporting different application scenarios, and information interventions based on predefined rules to achieve effective adherence. The preliminary analysis showed that people using social media for health care adherence may be motivated differently and act strategically during their social interactions.
