Los 10 hospitales más activos en Twitter | Healthcare, Digital and Social landscapes | Scoop.it

Un análisis de Vicente Nadal sobre los 10 hospitales con más actividad en Twitter revela que los centros sanitarios cada vez están más activos e interactúan más con sus seguidores. Llama la atención que de los 10, 6 sean de Barcelona, 1 de Valencia, otro de Navarra, otro de Mallorca y sólo uno de Madrid, la Clínica CEMTRO, uno de los que más recientemente ha entrado en las redes sociales pero que en poco tiempo ha conseguido convertirse en una referencia online, como ya lo era offline.

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.

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.

A transatlantic eHealth roadmap has been agreed between the European Commission and the US Department of Health and Human Services.

It aims to strengthen transatlantic cooperation in eHealth and health information technologies (IT) and will prioritise two areas over the next 18 months.

The first is the development of standards for electronic health information and communication technology that will allow 'interoperability' between different countries' systems.

The second priority will be to develop and expand a skilled health IT workforce in Europe and the US.

"Lacking any sort of formal guidance from the agency [regarding regulation of digital media], the only peek into FDA’s point of view is to examine enforcement patterns," says Senak. "So I have used the data base to compare enforcement patterns vis a vis digital communications."

Los pacientes empoderados ahorran costes pero no todos pueden serlo

Los pacientes empoderados ahorran costes pero no todos pueden serlo | Healthcare, Digital and Social landscapes | Scoop.it

Los pacientes empoderados ahorran costes al sistema público sanitario, ya que visitan menos al médico, consumen menos fármacos y aprovechan mejor su visita, según recoge esta infografía de TheKingsFund basada en datos del Reino Unido. Sin embargo, no todos los pacientes tienen acceso a la salud 2.0. Algunos no disponen de acceso a Internet, bien por falta de recursos económicos o porque no saben (aunque la brecha digital se va desplazando a segmentos más mayores). No obstante, acceder a una web no implica aprovechar el potencial de la salud 2.0. Así, vemos en esta infografía que aunque la mayoría de los médicos pueden mostrar a sus pacientes su historial clínico sólo un 1% lo hace.

 

Se completa el cuadro con las aplicaciones en salud, que muestran un avance imparable, en especial en lo ligado al ejercicio físico y al bienestar, y con las posibilidades del "crowdfunding" (@mlalanda me perdone) o recaudación de fondos a través de plataformas de pacientes.

Image Sharing Reducing Repeat Scans

Image Sharing Reducing Repeat Scans | Healthcare, Digital and Social landscapes | Scoop.it

Logistics are time-consuming when patients want to share an image with two or more doctors or track down older images so a new doctor can compare them with current results. Typically, patients receive copies of a medical image on a compact disc, which can easily be lost, damaged or even contain someone else's information. And because competing vendors sell incompatible equipment, one doctor sometimes can't view another's image on a CD without a long conversion process.

 

As a result, scans and other images are often repeated, piling up health-care costs and exposing patients to additional and potentially harmful doses of radiation. Though Medicare has clamped down on medical imaging expenditures in recent years, the federal agency spent about $10 billion in 2010, compared with about $6 billion a decade earlier. An estimated 10% to 20% of those costs are duplicate exams.

 

Now, several state and regional health-information exchanges have begun sharing images electronically, and a number of companies sell image-sharing technology directly to hospitals and radiology clinics to help transfer test results among doctors, who can view them on a tablet or smartphone if need be.

 

A growing number of providers, including some participating in a federally-funded program called Image Share, are offering patients a way to share their own images directly. The Radiological Society of North America, under contract with the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, is overseeing the Image Share project, with pilot sites including Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, the University of California, San Francisco, and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
