Internet Of Things To Change The Face Of US Healthcare

Internet Of Things To Change The Face Of US Healthcare | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things is already revolutionizing our lives. Endowing "things" with better-than-human eyes and ears (sensors) and the ability communicate is leading to improvements in our personal lives and business productivity in countless ways.

The IoT is, however, still a nascent paradigm, and has just begun to penetrate into some sectors such as healthcare. The IoT promises a veritable plethora of time and money-saving innovations for healthcare, including remote patient monitoring, telehealth and behavioral modification platforms that will dramatically improve  chronic disease management and reduce costs.

New Poll Shows Two-Thirds Of Doctors Reluctant To Share Health Data With Patients

New Poll Shows Two-Thirds Of Doctors Reluctant To Share Health Data With Patients | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it
The polling question was simple. Should patients have access to their entire medical record ‒ including MD notes, any audio recordings, etc...? For many, the response by over 2,300 physicians came as no real surprise. 49% ‒ Access to all records should only be given on a case-by-case basis 34% [...]
Art Jones's insight:

What follows is excerpted from the article, I share it here because it represents the minority position, which suggest open access to patients health data.


Excerpt:

An opposing view (by a doctor who does share all his patient data ‒ including clinical notes) was a compelling rebuttal.


"It profoundly changes the nature of the relationship. If the record (or visit note) is written explicitly as a shared document, it is no longer possible to maintain a relationship based on asymmetric power. I can no longer keep secrets. If there is an issue or potential issue impacting care, I have to address it with the patients. This is often what clinicians find objectionable. The thinking is “how can I document that I think the patient is being unreasonable or that depression is contributing to their pain or that their report of symptoms is exaggerated if they will see it?”


This is exactly why I think it is so important. Hiding these issues and using them to alter care without involving the patient is manipulative and paternalistic and keeps the patient from being fully autonomous.

Apple's ResearchKit opens millions of iPhone users to healthcare innovation - MassDevice

Apple's ResearchKit opens millions of iPhone users to healthcare innovation - MassDevice | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it

In March of this year Apple added another arrow to its quiver of mobile health innovations: the ResearchKit. The cousin to the previously released HealthKit, ResearchKit does for medical research what Apple has done for communications, entertainment, application distribution, music and more: it completely changes the game with simple, efficient, easy to use tools.To run a medical study today, researchers reach out to potential participants via everything from ads to letters and emails to posters and flyers. The yield from those efforts are typically low. As one researcher pointed out in a ResearchKit promotional video, “We have sent out over 60,000 letters. Those 60,000 letters have netted 305 women.” [1] The next step involves meeting with each and every participant to go over risks and benefits and other paperwork which can take up to 30 minutes per participant.

Art Jones's insight:

"The apps turn the iPhone into a medical data collection tool for self-reported input such as energy levels, cognitive abilities and mood (for a post-chemotherapy study on breast cancer survivors) or iPhone sensor input for balance, memory and gait (for a study on the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease)."

Wearables And Nanotech: The Future Of Healthcare

Wearables And Nanotech: The Future Of Healthcare | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it
Today, massive technological shifts – driven by Big Data, mobility, security and cloud computing – are rapidly transforming business and society. Entire industries are being completely transformed ...
Art Jones's insight:

Excerpt:

In today’s health-conscious world, tools like Fitbit and other personal monitoring tools are becoming ubiquitous, allowing us to track our fitness activities, sleep patterns, blood pressure and caloric intake.


The trend to track these lifestyle variables has changed the dynamics of the traditional patient-doctor relationship and has opened the doors to more advanced forms of treatment and care through remote monitoring, telemedicine, etc.


In-clinic diagnostic treatment is giving way to virtual consultation and homecare might replace hospital care very soon as we move to turn patient/doctor relationships into virtual ones. Last year we witnessed widespread adoption of telemedicine across healthcare facilities in the U.S, while the field has become even more accessible with healthcare retail giants like Walmart, Walgreens and CVS stepping into the telemedicine game.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 14, 12:46 AM

While applications and tools are enabling self-monitoring of health, more sophisticated devices and technologies are also capable of delivering the data generated to healthcare professionals, who can process it to predict and prevent bigger health concerns in the future.

Wearable devices are playing a major role in transferring actionable data from patients to doctors and caregivers, even employers. As a recent example, Google X Lab has partnered with Novartis to design contact lenses that track glucose levels in the wearer’s tears and transfers that information to a mobile device that the doctor uses for monitoring.  Another Google X project is the use of nanotechnology for detecting cancer. This project aimed at developing the nanoparticles Pill, which when ingested will run through the bloodstream, detects any abnormalities that suggest the presence of cancer. The data generated will be transmitted to doctors through a wearable device. It may be a revolutionary innovation for detecting and eradicating life-threatening diseases in their early stages.

The way disruptive technologies are creating seismic shifts in the healthcare landscape, it’s not hard to predict that we are in the midst of a healthcare revolution that empowers us more than ever to manage our lives to perform better on the field, at work, or in our home.

Another Uber-style startup launches in Nashville, this time for health care - Nashville Business Journal

Another Uber-style startup launches in Nashville, this time for health care - Nashville Business Journal | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it
In the past few months, several companies connected to the so-called "on-demand" economy have rolled out in or announced plans for Nashville, offering options for delivery of groceries (and other stuff), lawn care and even recruiting. Add to that list Dose Healthcare, a Nashville-based startup that brings an Uber-like approach to Nashville's biggest industry.
Art Jones's insight:

"Founded by Cole Hawkins and Jade Preis, Dose offers users in-home appointments with nurse practitioners that they can request online (or with an old-fashioned phone call). The service costs $129 a visit from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., or $199 for overnight visits. Users can also opt for a subscription model, which is $39 a month and then $35 a visit."

Art Jones's insight:

Jawbone’s wristworn devices’ return to the Apple Store is some much-needed good news for the company, which has had a rocky start to the year.


Just a few weeks after one of Jawbone’s main competitors, Fitbit, filed for an IPO, Jawbone sued Fitbit. Jawbone’s suit alleges that Fitbit poached employees who downloaded sensitive data about Jawbone before leaving the company.


And, although Jawbone finally announced that they would start shipping the much-delayed UP3 device last month, it couldn’t get the waterproofing right, so the device won’t be for use by swimmers as originally intended.
