Le géant de la recherche a pris une initiative intéressante à l'occasion de la 4ème édition de la semaine internationale de prévention du suicide. Elle pourrait prévenir certains suicides en France, pays durement touché par ce phénomène.
Les services web disposent de quelques outils pour dissuader des personnes de mettre fin à leurs jours. Le géant américain vient de mettre en place une nouvelle onebox renvoyant les internautes identifiés comme suicidaires vers des services d‘écoute de personnes en difficulté.
Si un internaute tape une requête du type « marre de la vie », « envie d’en finir », « se tuer rapidement », «suicide » sur la version FR de Google, il se verra alors proposé les coordonnées téléphoniques deSOS Amitié : « Si vous avez besoin d’aide, appelez en France le 01 42 96 26 26. SOS Amitié ». Un résultat qui se déclenche de manière automatique pour 600 requêtes. On s‘étonnera toutefois que le message ne s’affiche pas lorsqu’on tape « se tuer ».

Millions of words have been written over recent years across media channels about the relative performance of pharmaceutical companies in social environments. This site has contributed a few thousand of its own, it should probably be noted at the outset.
No aspect of the management of the portfolio of presences of companies has been deemed to be too small to analyse in detail.
As the novelty wore off, we have for the most part managed to emerge collectively from the pleasure palace of social with our sanity intact, our humanity undiminished, and our sights firmly set on using social technologies to do things differently.
Somewhere along the way, a pharma social hegemony appears to have been established...

L'industrie pharmaceutique vient de conclure l'exercice 2012 sur un bilan contrasté. Si certains groupes ont su encaisser l'impact de la perte de leurs brevets phares, d'autres ont été sérieusement ébranlés par la concurrence des génériques.
Parmi les acteurs qui se distinguent le suisse Roche, qui affiche des résultats qui tranchent sur ses concurrents, avec des ventes en hausse de 4 % et des résultats qui progressent de 13 %, à 18,7 milliards de dollars. La recette ? Trois produits majeurs en cancérologie dont les ventes annuelles ont dépassé les 6 milliards de dollars et qui continuent à se développer (de + 6 à + 11 %). Aucun autre groupe ne dispose actuellement d'un portefeuille avec un tel potentiel à court terme, même si l'américain Merck a bien encaissé la perte de brevets grâce à la montée en puissance de plusieurs autres produits (baisse des ventes limitée à 2 %, à 47,3 milliards de dollars, et hausse de 6 % du résultat, à 6,7 milliards de dollars).

The first mobile health device invented in 1975 is credited to the work of Gregory Lektman at Biosig Instruments. He collaborated with several companies included Polar Electro of Finland, which in 1977 introduced the first commercial wireless heart rate monitor. Healthy people - running and cycling enthusiasts - were able to train and perform better knowing more about their personal and physiological performance. The infection spread and Finland may well be the birthplace of today’s mobile health industry.
As more and more companies introduced heart rate monitors, the technology behind the product was fueled by a parallel technology progression across numerous industries. Boundaries disappeared and sensors became more available, sophisticated, smaller, implantable, injectable, and even tattoo-able. The integration between smartphones and sensors has sprung to life moving medicine, fitness, wellness, and human productivity to new levels, possibly as one industry.
Kevin Kelly and Gary Wolf collaborated in 2007 with users and tool makers who shared a common interest in self-knowledge through self-tracking. This was the start of the Quantified Self Movement. Mobile health took a quantum leap forward and Quantified Self lead to Participatory Health, Health at Home and Hospital at Home. In essence the ability to deliver care anywhere.
Do you remember doctors making house calls? Well, this medical practice has returned because mobile technology has eliminated the physical and time barriers between the patient’s home and the hospital. And, mobile health incubators growing new mobile health companies are further enabling the collaboration and communication between doctor and patient that is further fueling the new consumer-centric healthcare ecosystem.
The 45th International Consumer Electronics Show took place this past January in Las Vegas. Over 175 companies exhibited their mobile healthcare products, most of which were not traditional healthcare companies. The rapid consumer and physician adoption of mobile health devices is real and potentially considered the future of healthcare. But the device is only part of the solution. The data is proving to be more important, and the experience of wearing a device a key driver. Doctors and patients alike are adopting and craving the next best medical or health gadget or app.
Explorations of the health potential of Microsoft's Kinect gaming system have so far tended to focus on how it could be used to help rehabilitate patients.
But a new study suggests the Kinect could make a major impact in telemedicine, potentially cutting healthcare costs and reducing patients' hospital visits – and consequently the associated risk of infection.
The study's headline claims focus on the cost-saving benefits of the Kinect, which uses sensors to track body movements and register voice commands, but the technology could have wider-reaching benefits over existing telemedicine systems.
Writing in the International Journal of Electronic Finance, University of Arkansas' Janet Bailey and Microsoft's Bradley Jensen said gaming technology could be used to "teleport" the knowledge and skills of healthcare workers to where they are needed.
"The Kinect allows doctors to control the system without breaking the sterile field via hand gestures and voice commands with a goal of reducing the direct cost of healthcare associated infections to hospitals and patients," they wrote.

eHealth Initiative (eHI) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to drive improvement in the quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare through information and technology. We believe that advances in medical technology, such as electronic health records, patient portals, mobile health applications, and telemedicine, have the potential to fundamentally transform healthcare for patients. To this end, eHealth Initiative is dedicated to identifying, researching, and sharing innovative uses of health information technology with healthcare providers, hospitals and health systems, insurance companies, patients, and other members of the healthcare system at large. In 2012, eHI brought together leading experts on health IT and cancer care as a National Council on Cancer and Technology. The group met frequently to identify, discuss, share, and learn about the ways health IT can be used to improve cancer care. The Council created the following guide to the types of tools and technologies that patients and their families, caregivers, and support networks can use to make understanding, treating, and coping with cancer a little bit easier. While not an exhaustive list of every tool out there, we feel that this guide provides a strong overview of the kinds of technology resources that are currently available. The guide is divided into five categories of tools:
Tools for Decision Making: Decision-making is often one of the most difficult aspects of cancer care. Multiple treatment and therapeutic options are typically available for a particular cancer, and preventative measures, such as self-examination, can raise questions about whether an individual should consult with their doctor. Resources for decision-making support patients in choosing the options most relevant to their individual care needs. Common decision-making resources include tools for risk assessment, self-examination and cancer prevention, identifying clinical trials, and selecting among treatment alternatives.
Tools for Education: Cancer is a highly complex disease, with causes that may not be readily apparent to most individuals. Tools for education support patients in learning about and understanding the underlying causes of cancer and its treatments. These tools offer glossaries, lists of common questions and answers, cancer facts, and links to other resources or content.
Tools for Information and Treatment Management: Once a patient begins treatment, the combined physical, emotional, and psychological effects can make coping with cancer almost impossible. Managing these effects, and keeping track of medications, appointments, test results, and other aspects of cancer care can be a tremendous undertaking. Tools for information and treatment management help patients input, store, and track personal information related to treatment.
Tools for Social Support: Not only is cancer a particularly frightening diagnosis, the symptoms and side effects of treatment can be debilitating. Tools for social support connect patients with family, friends, and others struggling with cancer to lend assistance during treatment, alleviate fears, and/or provide words of support and encouragement.
Tools for Lifestyle Management: Though there is no definitive way to prevent developing cancer, certain lifestyle choice can increase your risk. Tools for lifestyle management can help patients make healthy decisions that can prevent cancer, such as losing weight, exercising, or quitting smoking.
