After EHR Frenzy: Health IT's Next Priorities

Although most healthcare organizations are now focused on getting their electronic health records (EHR) systems running properly, many are also setting their sights on the technology needed to meet ICD-10 compliance, support accountable care organizations (ACOs), and maintain systems that will reduce hospital readmissions, according to Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts.


Giving his assessment of the healthcare IT market during Allscripts' Nov. 3 third-quarter financials conference call, Tullman said technology has taken center stage as an important tool that can address challenges facing the healthcare sector.

How might mobile technology improve your utilization of EHR? | pharmaphorum

How might mobile technology improve your utilization of EHR? | pharmaphorum | healthcare technology | Scoop.it

Few areas of mobile health captivate and frustrate like the integration of electronic health records (EHRs). As mHealth rapidly evolves so, too, has EHR, making for a multidimensional moving playing field of competing and often incompatible technologies. Medical computing expert Scot Silverstein of Drexel University has criticized most medical records systems as being overly complicated, difficult to use, and prone to glitches, a perspective substantiated by IT behemoths such as IBM and Microsoft that have discovered highly lucrative revenue streams helping hospitals integrate and extract data from disparate and unwieldy software systems.

Smartphone Camera Detects Breathing Rate, Pulse and Blood Oxygen Saturation | healthcare technology | Scoop.it

Both the iPhone app store and the Android market have their fair share of heart rate monitors, which use either the microphone or in some cases the camera to detect your heart rate, with varying levels of accuracy. A researcher from Worcester Polytechnic Institute wanted to take this idea a little further and has developed a smartphone app that measures not only heart rate, but also heart rhythm, respiration rate and blood oxygen saturation using the phone’s built-in video camera.

Social media starts the patient dialogue with doctors and nurses

A patient apologized to me for asking so many questions. There is no need to apologize, I said to the patient; it’s wonderful that you have so many questions concerning your health care. I mentioned to her that she is an “empowered and engaged patient,” and that is a good thing.

 

It’s no secret that health consumers are turning to the internet for health information.

Three Approaches to mHealth: Open Government at HHS

There are more wireless devices being used in the U.S. than there are people (CTIA, 2011)! Over 50% of U.S. adults are using wireless devices, such as cell phones, to access the internet, with 78% of wireless device users searching online for health information ( Pew Internet and American Life Project, 2010).

 

Over the next few months, we will be highlighting HHS mobile health (mHealth) activities, initiatives and programs in a series of blogs. Following the September 2011 blog by Todd Park that highlighted the HHS Text4Health Task Force recommendations, this blog examines three different approaches to mHealth programs using cell phones, providing examples of HHS programs for each approach.

FaceTime calls are encrypted, HIPAA compliant

FaceTime calls are encrypted, HIPAA compliant | healthcare technology | Scoop.it

This isn't the issue from last fall, but Apple addressed questions regarding FaceTime security to ZDNet. An Apple representative assured the site that the FaceTime conversation stream is encrypted from end to end, and each FaceTime session has unique session keys for each user.

 

What this does is make FaceTime HIPAA compliant as long as the wireless network being used utilizes WPA2 Enterprise security with 128-bit AES encryption. HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is the U.S. standard for electronic health care transactions designed to keep these records secure and protect patient privacy. With the protocols being followed, those in the healthcare industry can apply for grants for Apple gear since HIPAA compliance is required.

Methods of Maximizing the Utility of mHealth Apps

Methods of Maximizing the Utility of mHealth Apps | healthcare technology | Scoop.it

     Mobile health digital applications [apps, or as I have proposed, meddis (see http://davidleescher.com/2011/09/26/why-mhealth-apps-shouldn%E2%80%99t-be-called-apps/)], are discrete programs or platforms that are usually designed with one goal, whether it be for the maintenance of health, the utilization of a diagnostic method, or the achievement of a therapeutic goal. Ultimately, these apps (I will call them apps for the remainder of this article for convention) will change the way healthcare is both viewed (pun intended) and, I wouldn’t say delivered because of the one way connotation of the word, but experienced. However, the technology as it is being developed now is very disjointed and not intuitive with regards to clinical workflow or patient management (I will, for the remainder of this article, be referring to people with chronic diseases or post-hospital discharge, not people seeking help with wellness).
