5 Reasons Pharma Should Care About Apple Watch

5 Reasons Pharma Should Care About Apple Watch | Healthstartup.eu | Scoop.it

For months and months speculation was rife about the Apple Watch (or iWatch as was the expected moniker) and the possible implications and applications for healthcare. Then we had the 9th March launch event in San Francisco and theApple Watch seemed to sink like a lead balloon in the minds of health technology enthusiasts. This was aided by articles such as the one in the Wall Street Journal that claimed much of the exciting health sensor technology had been scrapped and asked: What Exactly Is an Apple Watch For? (Subscription required)

 

I believe that technology only becomes socially interesting when it becomes technologically boring. We can only really impact health at scale when we utilise technology that has true mainstream reach. However I feel there are still a number of key reasons the Apple Watch is worth thinking about for healthcare broadly, and pharmaceutical companies specifically. Here are five reasons pharma should care as we approach the April 24th Apple Watch launch date

Daiki Urata's curator insight, March 26, 2:53 AM

Artificial intelligence helps doctors to reduce medical errors. They can remember a huge amount of patient's data and make a decision what illness is expected by analysing those data. 

Patrick Bolter's curator insight, March 27, 3:54 AM

Medicine has always been a fast growing field in technology, the better it is, the higher the quality of life for humans becomes. Artificial intelligence could one day be the answer to error free medical research and application.

Geoff Ahloy-Martin's curator insight, March 27, 5:14 AM

Artificial intelligence seems to have its uses in all different industries of work, with the health field being no exception. This article shows that AI can work to grant doctors precision that previous technology have not allowed them to grasp. The result of such a technology means that doctors will be able to accurately administer treatment to patients with reduced risk. 


However, how will this fare for issues such as accountability? In cases where patients are not treated properly, who can be faulted? What if there are problems in the system?

Evena’s point-of-care Eyes-On system is the first vein detection device to deliver clear, anatomically accurate, real-time imaging in a wearable, easy-to-use, hands-free and cart-free system. The system has telemedicine capabilities to share images remotely and interfaces with a hospital’s EMR systems for seamless documentation.

Brandon Y's curator insight, March 10, 1:00 PM

This article discusses the use of multispectral lighting to highlight the deoxygenated hemoglobin within a patient's veins in order for nurses and other medical care assistants to find veins easily. This reduces much of the patient's uncomfort as it can take multiple tries to apply an IV or administer a drug. It also speeds up the process, allowing for faster more efficient treatment. I'm interested in how new technology such as this can allow doctors and medical assistants to treat patients better. I would want to help develop or work with technology such as this in order to help in the medical field.

Samsung app helps Alzheimer's patients remember their families

Samsung app helps Alzheimer's patients remember their families | Healthstartup.eu | Scoop.it

If you've seen Still Alice, you know how important a smartphone can be for an Alzheimer's patient -- it helps jog memories that might otherwise be lost. Samsung is clearly aware of this, as it just released a dedicated Backup Memory app to stimulate the memories of early-onset patients. The Android tool uses Bluetooth to detect when friends and family running the app are nearby. If they are, it'll both identify the person and show user-uploaded photos and videos that recall past events.

Healthcare Providers warming up to mobile health

Healthcare Providers warming up to mobile health | Healthstartup.eu | Scoop.it

The use of electronic health records has come a long way since 2010, but EHRs cannot stand alone, warns a PwC report. The next challenge is integrating mobile health devices into the EHR and the provider–patient relationship.

 

The consulting company interviewed 1,000 physicians and physician extenders—nurse practitioners, physician assistants—to discover how they use digital technology and some of the concerns they have about incorporating it into clinical practice (http://tinyurl.com/digital-study).

The number of providers using smartphones and tablets is increasing. For example, in 2010, about 1 in 8 (12%) used mobile devices to check medical records. In 2014, the survey found that almost half (45%) do.

Using electronic records is so much more efficient than the old style of millions of folders and files. While it is much easier to search and find specific files electronically, there is also the possibility of losing records or being hacked.

Stephen Frew's curator insight, February 4, 3:21 PM

This may be a tool with potential good uses, but it also has the potential for massive privacy breach downsides.  I personally would be very concerned on turning this system lose on patient EHRs unless the patient had affirmatively OPTED-IN to participate.  There is also an issue on whether or not the healthcare providers and hospitals included this in their notice of privacy practices when they joined the system.
