La loi de modernisation de notre système de santé, promulguée le 26 janvier 2016, est complétée par de nombreux textes d’applications, dont plusieurs ont été publiés au cours de l’année 2016. Parmi eux, plusieurs textes apportent des précisions sur les modifications apportées au régime de droit commun du partage et de l’échange des données de santé à caractère personnel, tout en clarifiant la notion d’équipe de soins. A l’occasion d’une réunion de l’Association française des correspondants à la protection des données à caractère personnel (AFCDP), Florence Eon, directrice juridique de l’ASIP Santé, fait le point sur ces nouveautés.
Many people think of social media as a place to waste time. Users log on to check out a friend’s vacation photos, let the world know about their relationship status and catch up on some news. And hopefully not the fake kind.
But can social media be used for a greater good? Could it save lives? The short answer is “yes.”
From providing emotional support to suffering patients to training of first responders to education and encouraging wellness, social media provides health benefits galore. So while Facebook can’t drive you to the hospital yet, there are many signs of hope within social media channels.
First responders and emergencies
Those connected to their county government, elected officials and utility companies via social media are often the first to learn of emergencies. Officials typically share road closings, power outages and weather updates first via these easy communication channels.
Social media can help medical professionals, specifically first responders, improve how they respond to emergencies. These communications also go both ways, allowing first responders to use social media to expand their informational reach.
Patients connect with online communities
When diagnosed with a disease, patients have tons of questions and fears. They think, “If only I could talk to someone who has been through this already.”
Social media sites facilitate those suffering from particular diseases create a community unlike any other. Patients Like Me is a site that connects patients based on their diagnosis, providing online communities for those with Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, epilepsy and more.
There are also social components to many healthy eating and exercise apps. Take My Fitness Pal, which allows you to connect with friends or post your progress to your social media pages. This type of social wellness activity encourages accountability and solidifies healthy habits.
Mental health warnings
Cyberbullying is prevalent in today’s society, and it can lead to the tragic outcome of suicide if not stopped. Parents and teachers are using social media to look for signs of bulling, violence or other threats so that they can intervene as early as possible.
For example, a school district in suburban Los Angeles, California, hired a technology firm tomonitor students’ social media usage as part of an effort to increase student safety. During the pilot phase of the project, the firm saved a student’s life when they picked up their social media postings, allowing the school to intervene.
Wisely using social media
Of course, social media doesn’t come without drawbacks. For example, violations of privacy are becoming more common as health care workers post patient stories and photos online. Even if done anonymously, it can deter patients from receiving care out of fear of violations of privacy.
This isn’t just speculation. A high-profile example of technology use gone awry came to light during the inquest into legendary comedian Joan Rivers’ death. Investigations eventually revealed that her doctor allegedly took photos of an unconscious Rivers during her procedure.
While we should use technology wisely and cautiously, it has the potential to help both patients and health care professionals.
Social media can help inform emergency responders so that they have the most up-to-date information and it can provide a community to those diagnosed with life-threatening diseases. It can also encourage healthy habits. By connecting patients and professionals, social media can actually save lives.
As patients have better access to health information through the Internet and expect to be more engaged in health decision making, traditional models of the patient-provider relationship and communication strategies must be revisited to adapt to this changing demographic.
Physicians often don’t have the time to explain the complex world of medicine to patients. While more people are going online for health information the Internet can be like a jungle with many false trails to supposed health information. For the most part, it’s up to online health seekers to determine what is “real” and ‘trusted” as opposed to false and fake. Within lies a great opportunity for pharma companies.
Une instruction de la direction générale de l'offre de soins (DGOS) publiée le 18 janvier lance un appel à projets auprès des agences régionales de santé (ARS) pour développer l'usage des messageries sécurisées de santé comme support de la lettre de liaison et des résultats d'examens de biologie médicale.
Let’s take a look at what you might call one of the real frontiers of health information exchange: emergency physicians (EP) on Twitter.
Some might consider this a rather random, almost frivolous, corner of the HIE landscape to focus on, what with all the debates about how best to improve intra-institutional HIE that directly impacts current patients.
But in a recent study out of the University of Washington, researchers reviewed the rapidly expanding community of EP who have taken to Twitter to share observations and the latest research related to emergency medicine.
In explaining their decision, the researchers observed, “In 2009 there were 672 emergency physicians (EP) on Twitter, and in January 2016 there were 2,234. According to one survey, more than a quarter of emergency medicine (EM) faculty use Twitter.”
Despite the social medium’s popularity, the researchers wrote, Twitter is still widely considered “untested” as a repository of serious information. Nonetheless, they noted, “dissemination of information on Twitter can be rapid and viral, and is heavily influenced by important opinion leaders. Ideas flow from mass media to opinion leaders and then to the rest of a community. Opinion leaders have a wide and loyal audience, have the power to influence the decisions of others, and disproportionately impact the spread and credibility of information . . . As such, they have the potential to influence the conversation and the content significantly more than their less influential counterparts.”
In many ways, this study is a preliminary work, designed to identify and compile a list of the most influential EPs on Twitter, which “will help us better understand the intricate relationships of EPs on Twitter and lay the groundwork for future scientific inquiry.”
As for the results, of the 2,000+ plus EPs currently active on Twitter, the UW researchers dubbed 61 of them Twitter Influencers (TI). “Rigorous analyses of the 61 TIs will move forward our understanding of the way Twitter is used for content, conversation, and professional development,” they wrote. “For example, in-depth content analysis of the tweets of the 61 TIs would give insight into the EM subjects with the most weight on Twitter. . . . Understanding the balance of content on Twitter may help EM practitioners and educators make informed decisions. Finally, and most importantly from a research perspective, analyzing the veracity of the content disseminated by the TIs would help further shine the light of evidence-based medicine on EM social media.”
There’s no shortage of pros and cons to the exploding role of social media across society. But as that debate isn’t likely to be settled any time soon, studies like this one can help stakeholders get a sense of how, if not to tame the social media frontier, at least to make the best use of it as it inevitably keeps expanding.
