Google ‘se colará’ dentro del cuerpo humano | estusanidad.com | Healthcare, Digital and Social landscapes | Scoop.it

El gigante de Internet mira, cada vez menos de reojo, a la sanidad. Si en primer lugar anunció su participación en el proyecto de las ‘lentillas inteligentes’, ahora Google se ha propuesto cambiar el paradigma de la medicina basándola en la prevención, y no en el tratamiento. Ese es el objetivo de ‘Baseline study’ un nuevo proyecto en el que se pretende establecer los parámetros del paciente 100% sano, y a partir de ahí comprobar cuándo nos alejamos de esa condición. De esta manera se conseguiría anticiparse a la enfermedad, llegando al punto de detectarla antes de la aparición de los primeros síntomas. En este nuevo proyecto, que pretende adentrarse en lo más profundo del cuerpo humano, Google recopilará información genética y molecular que en una primera fase será de 175 personas pero se ampliará a miles más. Con él se espera realizar un cuadro sobre los aspectos que conformarían un ser humano 100% saludable sobre el que, a su vez, determinar una serie de patrones utilizando la capacidad para contabilizar de que dispone Google. “Es un salto a lo desconocido”, ha reconocido a ‘The Wall Street Journal’ el director del proyecto, Andrew Conrad, que tiene claro el objetivo de la iniciativa: adelantarse a patologías tan letales como el cáncer o las enfermedades cardiovasculares gracias a las diferencias en los parámetros genéticos y moleculares que se manifiestan antes de la aparición de los primeros síntomas. De este modo, la medicina se conduciría más a la prevención que al tratamiento de la enfermedad.

Emma Sands's insight:

The current target for wearables is the same as for gyms and sports clubs -  this leads to stats as commented in the article: "Less than half of people who own a wearable use it on a daily basis". Currently wearables are being treated as "add-on" to a healthy lifestyle, but form no real part of it. We need them to become "add-ins" (to coin a phrase), an integral part of health management within the home - the active-patient paradigm.

CEOs plan to boost IT spending and 20% to hire a chief digital officier via @Gartner

CEOs plan to boost IT spending and 20% to hire a chief digital officier via @Gartner | Healthcare, Digital and Social landscapes | Scoop.it

Chief executives increasingly plan to increase their information technology spending in 2013 and 2014 as they ponder digital strategies, according to a Gartner survey.

Gartner's survey, based on 390 senior business leaders at companies with $250 million or more, found that CEOs by a four-to-one ratio plan to boost IT spending in 2013. Indeed, 78 percent of CEOs said they can plan their 2013 and 2014 IT investments and business growth.

What's driving the IT spending bullishness? Gartner argues that companies are forming digital strategies. Fifty two percent of business leaders said they have a digital strategy to fuel e-commerce, mobile, cloud and social plans.

The return for these digital strategies may rhyme with Starbucks' master plan, which revolves around using its own brand to spend less on marketing.

Other key items from the Gartner survey:

19 percent of CEOs said they expected to employ a chief digital officer by 2014.17 percent of CEOs expected to hire a chief data officer.

The upshot is that CEOs appear to understand that existing IT budgets won't fuel growth. What's unclear is where the technology spending budgets will head. Chief marketing officers and line of business executives are expected to increasingly have their own IT budgets.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, April 19, 2013 8:40 AM

Digital transformations won't happen without money and IT budgets are not sufficient to fuel the growth. CMOs will spend more than CIOs by 2017 said Gartner last year. This gives rise to new concepts, from chief digital officers to chief marketing technologists. This is a very good thing as it will speed deployment of digital technologies. However, without a major transformation in the roles and responsibilities of CIOs - where they should play a bigger in architecture and data governance and less on server hugging - , this may lead to technology chaos. Interesting times ahead...

Las farmacias se apuntan a la telemonitorización

Las farmacias se apuntan a la telemonitorización | Healthcare, Digital and Social landscapes | Scoop.it

Las farmacias están incorporando las tecnologías aplicadas a la salud (TIC) para mejorar su atención a los pacientes en su casa, según un artículo que recoge El Global. Los Servicios de Ayuda Domiciliaria (SAD) puestos en marcha por diversos colegios farmacéuticos, por los cuales las farmacias acreditadas entregan directamente en el domicilio del paciente, principalmente dependientes, los denominados sistemas personalizados de dosificación (SPD), ya están plenamente desarrollados desde hace años en diversas regiones de España. Este sería el caso, entre otras, de País Vasco o Galicia.

 

Sin embargo, la 'presencia' de las farmacias en los domicilios puede ir mucho más allá de la entrega de SPD. En este sentido, las nuevas tecnologías abren un nuevo universo por explorar en el campo de la asistencia farmacéutica domiciliaria. Por ejemplo, servicios como la telemonitorización pueden resultar desconocidos a día de hoy para farmacéuticos y pacientes, pero cada vez son más voces las que hablan de ellos como una de las herramientas que acercarán todavía más, en un futuro próximo, la oficina de farmacia a casa.

 

La telemonitorización debe ser vista como "un complemento de los SPD y, de manera especial, de gran utilidad en pacientes que requieren un control periódico de otros factores que influyen en la evolución de su patología además de su tratamiento, como los hipertensos", indica Josep Arasa, farmacéutico especialista en Farmacia Industrial y Galénica y director de la empresa Sistemas de Dosificación de Medicamentos, que oferta servicios de este tipo.

 

 Características del servicio

 

¿En qué consiste la telemonitorización? "Cuando el paciente se toma la medida de temperatura o tensión desde su domicilio, los resultados son enviados directamente a un servidor por dos tipos de vías: por teléfono móvil (a través de una aplicación creada para tal fin) o por vía bluetooth, si el dispositivo que se le ha facilitado al paciente en la botica para sus mediciones dispone de este sistema", explica Arasa.

 

De forma paralela, "el farmacéutico tiene acceso permanente a este servidor vía Internet para conocer los resultados de todas las mediciones realizadas por el paciente. Incluso, el propio servidor tiene establecidos unos márgenes de control que avisan al profesional cuando los resultados no se sitúan dentro de los parámetros normales", concreta este experto. En función de los resultados de estas mediciones, sobre todo si los mismos son negativos, el boticario actuaría en consecuencia: comunicándose con el paciente, informando al médico...

 

 Experiencia en hospitales

 

La telemonitorización puede considerarse un servicio de futuro para mejorar la atención domiciliaria desde las boticas. En cambio, ya es una realidad en otros ámbitos asistenciales. Por ejemplo, la Generalitat de Cataluña ya utiliza este sistema en algunos de sus hospitales y, en concreto, en pacientes que han recibido el alta pero sobre los que se requiere mantener un control en la posterior hospitalización domiciliaria. "También este servicio ha llegado a las boticas de varios países europeos", recuerda Arasa.

 

No obstante, como en tantas otras situaciones, su implantación en las farmacias españolas tiene actualmente un principal enemigo: la crisis económica. "Requiere de la inversión del farmacéutico y del propio paciente (alquiler de los dispositivos), pero está demostrado que la telemonitorización reduce los ingresos hospitalarios y, por tanto, genera ahorros a la Administración", precisa Arasa. Por ello, como beneficiaria de este sistema, la Administración tendría mucho que decir en el objetivo de adelantar este futuro al presente.

COM SALUD's curator insight, April 23, 2013 8:23 AM

La liberalización del sector farmacéutico, que se está estudiando por el Ministerio de Sanidad a instancias de la Unión Europea, traerá consigo cambios en la manera en la que las farmacias se relacionan con los pacientes. Aquellas farmacias que innoven y ofrezcan servicios de valor añadido restarán cuota de mercado a aquellas que se limiten a dispensar de manera presencial. 

Unesco Telemedicine's comment, May 9, 2013 5:46 AM
Resulta peligroso considerar a las farmacias en el entorno de las UNIDADES TRANSVERSALES o Cuidado Integral del paciente salvo para la accesibilidad a medicamentos. El resto requiere una estructura sanitaria especifica.
