10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution

10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it

This year IBM dedicated its Five in Five series (an annual list of five technologies that are likely to advance dramatically) solely to sensors.

 

Digital sensors of the touch, sight,hearing, taste and smell kind along with their potential are all profiled by IBM Sensor technology is going through a renaissance as companies develop smart and innovative new ways to track data using them.

 

Sensor innovation is in-part driving the Digital Health Revolution as digital health companies find ingenius ways to integrate them in to apps, devices and other peripherals. The smartphone will play an increasing important role in all of this as they go from having six built-in sensors currently to having sixteen in the next five years.

 

If these predictions are correct then the next five years will be half-a-decade of sensor proliferation meaning the Digital Health Ecosystem will grow exponentially. In the meantime though there are already a plethora of digital health sensors in use or in the pipeline that are helping people improve and, in some instances, save lives.

Bitter Pill: Doctors Not Swallowing Social Media Fervor

Bitter Pill: Doctors Not Swallowing Social Media Fervor | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it


Want a doctor to treat you via social media?

Don’t hold your breath — unless you look good blue.

In June, a study by MedData Group found that 44 percent of U.S. physicians weren’t using social media sites for professional services.

If doctors are using social networking as part of their job, it’s profession-related sites that were the platforms of choice.

In a story posted at eMarketer, it was disclosed that “around one-third of respondents used LinkedIn, and 29 percent were active on online physician communities, compared with just 3 percent who used online patient portals.”

Doctors are not gravitating toward social sites that are popular among the general public. These experienced low engagement among physicians.

Why the hesitancy?

It’s not for lack of knowledge. Rather, doctors cite “patient privacy and a lack of time” as the leading reasons they stay away from using social networks for their doctoring pursuits.

Polling by Digital Insights Group revealed that the general consensus among physicians is that social just isn’t an important resource when it comes to doing their jobs. Only 14 percent of primary care physicians said that social networks were a somewhat or very important clinical resource, compared with 30 percent who said they “weren’t important at all.”

When doctors do turn to digital resources to make decisions, they’re most likely using search engines, according to April 2014 research also conducted by MedData Group. Among U.S. physicians surveyed, a whopping 78 percent said search engines were the online resource they used in the medical decision-making process. A mere 5 percent cited social media.

Excerpt: Health insurers are radically changing how they compensate physicians and hospitals, moving from an antiquated model which pays for the quantity of services provided – and does not consider quality or effectiveness – to a new model that rewards improving quality and lowering cost.

LinkedIn – hidden gem or health wasteland? | Klick Health | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it
If Facebook is the personal social network then LinkedIn is the world’s professional social network. This site boasts 259 million members worldwide and nearly half of those, 110 million are in the US. With one-third of the entire US population on the service it would seem like a great place for getting access to healthcare professionals outside of normal channels.
