HepCure: Free Hepatitis C App Available for Patients and Providers to Connect and Cure

HepCure: Free Hepatitis C App Available for Patients and Providers to Connect and Cure | "Patient empowerment worldwide through digital health | ehealth | mobile health | Connected health | Patient portals | EHR & EMR | Health IT | Digital hospitals | Digitally savvy healthcare providers" by VAB Traduction | Scoop.it
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that more than half of all people living with hepatitis C in the U.S. are unaware of their infection and only 9% have been successfully treated and cured, despite the availability of well-tolerated curative treatments for the past several years. A major priority of the Action Plan for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of Viral Hepatitis is improving testing, care, and treatment to prevent liver disease and cancer. Given the large number of patients with chronic hepatitis C (HCV) who have not yet been cured, there is an urgent need for more health care providers to treat patients infected with HCV. The HepCure initiative aims to expand the number of health care providers treating HCV infection, improve provider knowledge of HCV disease management, enhance patient engagement in the HCV treatment process, and improve the quality and outcome of HCV treatment.

Free Personalized Text Messages Remind Patients To Take Medications

Medical Research: What should clinicians and patients take away from your report?

Response: This study illustrates the important benefit of mobile technology in modern health practices. As more and more patients continue to use cellphones, simple solutions like text messages can be used to help a growing section of the population. It was found in this study that simple steps like repeated reminders can help to improve adherence to medications. One major advantage of the intervention developed for this study was that it was a computer program designed to send reminders to any type of cell phone, rather than an app, which is restricted to specific brands or types of smartphones. In essence, mobile technology represents an opportunity to develop interventions which are applicable to a wide range of populations while simultaneously having a significant impact on heart health promotion.

How does the FDA regulate mobile medical apps? - Public Health

How does the FDA regulate mobile medical apps? - Public Health | "Patient empowerment worldwide through digital health | ehealth | mobile health | Connected health | Patient portals | EHR & EMR | Health IT | Digital hospitals | Digitally savvy healthcare providers" by VAB Traduction | Scoop.it
Leaving the sexist nature of this terminology aside, we can see that the FDA takes a very clinical perspective on what types of apps they consider as falling in their domain. This approach is practical. It means that they a priori alleviate themselves of responsibility for the numerous health apps continually being produced, which allows them to focus on those apps posing the greatest risks to users. An app which intends ‘to affect the structure or any function of the body of man’ is potentially much more impactful than a simple diet tracking app. Or is it? And is it debatable whether diet and fitness apps intend to alter the structure or function of man?

Mobile Applications Help Boost Patient Engagement - News - mHealthIntelligence

Mobile Applications Help Boost Patient Engagement - News - mHealthIntelligence | "Patient empowerment worldwide through digital health | ehealth | mobile health | Connected health | Patient portals | EHR & EMR | Health IT | Digital hospitals | Digitally savvy healthcare providers" by VAB Traduction | Scoop.it
Getting patients to engage in their healthcare can be a challenge. Once they leave the doctor’s office or hospital, physicians need to assume that they will follow instructions to improving their health and following post-treatment instructions. As any medical professional will tell you, that is not always the case.

Patient engagement is critical as the push from fee-for-service to value-based care increases. If more individuals are taking an active role in their care - following treatments, knowing medical history, tracking symptoms - it is more likely that they will stay out of the hospital, be informed in healthcare decision making and avoid unnecessary tests and procedures.

An app will be developed to make it easy for healthcare professionals and the public to report suspected adverse drug reactions.

The project will look at the potential for identifying drug safety issues via mining of publically available social media data

An app will be developed to make it easy for healthcare professionals and the public to report suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to national and European regulators.

An EU initiative wants to widen the use of smartphones and social media for transmitting notifications about drug safety issues directly to patients, clinicians and caregivers. The three-year project, known as WEB-RADR, involves the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). It will investigate the potential of social media data and its value for pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiology.

Funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative, a public–private partnership between the European Union and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, WEB-RADR also aims to come up with recommendations for the medicines regulators and the pharmaceutical industry on how these new approaches can be integrated with existing systems.

A workshop to launch the scheme will be held at the European Medicines Agency at the end of October 2014.

“The growing use of smartphones and tablets by patients and healthcare professionals creates a need for reporting forms to be provided on these platforms to ensure regulators receive ADR reports that are easy to access and complete,” says Mick Foy, from the MHRA’s vigilance and risk management of medicines division.

“[T]he recent growth of social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and the many specialist sites and blogs, has given rise to many people sharing their medical experiences publically on the internet. Such data sharing, if properly harnessed, could provide an extremely valuable source of information for post-marketing surveillance for suspected adverse drug reactions and safety monitoring.”

Digital health and its role in the changing health care landscape

Digital health and its role in the changing health care landscape | "Patient empowerment worldwide through digital health | ehealth | mobile health | Connected health | Patient portals | EHR & EMR | Health IT | Digital hospitals | Digitally savvy healthcare providers" by VAB Traduction | Scoop.it

The digital age of medicine is upon us.  Recently at the opening plenary session at the annual Heart Rhythm Society meetings, we heard Dr. Eric Topol and others tell us that we must embrace social networking in order to engage patients and improve care.  The Affordable Care Act has now changed the landscape of medical practice in the US: We must do more to focus on preventative care and work harder to curtail costs.  More patients are insured and a primary care shortage is upon us (according to data from the AAFP).

In fact, it is estimated that we must create an additional 65 training spots in primary care every year for the next 10 years in order to keep up with the demand, assuming that the AAFP estimate of a 25% growth in workforce will be needed to meet the growing pool of insured Americans.  In addition, preventative services will require frequent follow-up, patient engagement and support services.

Patients are more connected than ever: Most patients now go to the internet to prepare for office visits and come armed with lots of information.  Office visits are already now dominated by keyboards and EMRs and it only seems logical that the next step will be virtual access for physicians and patients.  With growing primary care shortages and an increasing pool of patients needed access to care, telemedicine is likely to play a much larger role in the future.  The concept of telemedicine is not new: Remote areas and hospitals have been utilizing telemedicine consults in order to provide specialist support for primary care physicians with limited access.

The Wall Street Journal recently reported on the growing telemedicine business: Doctors seeing patients via computer portals from nearly anywhere in the world.  Several web based companies are now regularly hosting virtual doctor visits online where physicians and patients interact via phone and Internet.  Patients describe symptoms and discuss issues with their virtual doctor and are then prescribed therapy: all for a cost of only 40-50 dollars.  Most visits are completed within 15 minutes and no travel is required for either doctor or patient.  Advocates argue that for simple straightforward problems telemedicine visits are much more cost effective and also provide high quality efficient patient care.  Critics have voiced concerns over the quality of care, lack of doctor-patient relationship and the over-prescription of antibiotics.  Some argue that when a virtual visit occurs, diagnosis is made more difficult due to a lack of physical exam.  In addition, data obtained by the Wall Street Journal from Rand Corp., indicate that virtual visits are more likely to result in the prescription of an antibiotic.

 

As you may expect, guidelines from regulatory agencies and medical boards are currently in the works.  Virtual physicians will be held to the same standards as in person office visits and continuity of care is being encouraged by allowing patients to choose their virtual doctor rather than have the provider randomly assigned.  In addition, the Federation of State Medical Boards is now recommending that all virtual doctors are licensed in the state in which the patient that is treated resides.  However, this particular requirement for licensing does not really make good sense if the objective of telemedicine is to provide care to those with limited access to physicians.  Virtual medicine has the potential to meet significant primary care needs in remote, rural and underserved communities and may be an alternative to in person treatment of simple, straightforward medical problems.

As we continue to reform the U.S. health care system, many challenges must be met and overcome.  Providing affordable, high quality, efficient care to a growing number of insured Americans is a significant task.  With the advent of digital medicine and advancements in mobile technologies, it is now possible to provide care to patients who may otherwise remain unserved.  Wearable sensors, mobile devices that can obtain real time electrocardiograms and other technologies in development make it possible to receive diagnostic data from remote locations.   In order to be successful, we must embrace change and utilize the digital tools that are now available to provide care to those who so badly need it.
