Do Old People Want Digital Engagement? | e-Patient Experience

Do Old People Want Digital Engagement? | e-Patient Experience | medical mobile app | Scoop.it

But not for long, because the “boomers” are coming… and Pew says of those between 50 and 64, 77 percent of them are using the internet. And it’s growing. Here are a couple more stats:

42% of mobile phone owners 55 and older now have smartphones, according toNielsen. They are quickly adopting tablets too.
 Pew says seniors are the fastest social media adopters in the U.S. (jumping from 26% to 43% of those 65+ in the past 3 years)
 Accenture recently found that 67% of seniors surveyed say that access to their health information is important, but only 28 percent currently have full access to their electronic health records.

Oftentimes, as patients age, a younger caregiver is responsible for managing their health, and with busy careers and families, would appreciate the use of online tools for their patient. After all, 43.5 million adult family caregivers care for someone 50+ years of age, says the Family Caregiver Alliance.

If you ignore patient demand for online tools only because “Medicare patients won’t use it,” you’re catering to the minority, not the majority. And just a few years down the road, your Medicare population may become the most active users of these tools, so it’s better to get in front of this trend now.

It’s no longer a question of “if,” but “when” providers will need to adopt online solutions to help all their patients. The last thing providers want is to be seen as behind the times or as “old people” themselves.

Read how Butler Health System engaged a senior audience (total joint replacements) using online engagement in Becker’s Hospital Review.

Use of the Internet as a Health Information Resource Among French Young Adults: Results From a Nationally Representative Survey
Anna Koczorowska's insight:

Conclusions: The Internet is a useful tool to spread health information and prevention campaigns, especially to target young adults. Young adults trust online information and consider the Internet as a valid source of health advice. Health agencies should ensure the improvement of online health information quality and the creation of health-related websites and programs dedicated to young adults.

Twitter is your new migraine doctor! | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis

Twitter is your new migraine doctor! | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis | medical mobile app | Scoop.it
Twitter is your new migraine doctor! - Welcome to the new migraine attack manual - in 140 characters!

 

Deciphering 21,741 tweets, researchers have found that 74% women shared a real-time migraine attack on twitter, followed by 17% men.

The higher global peak of migraine tweets occurred Mondays at 14:00 GMT or 10 a.m. Eastern Daylight Saving Time, the study said.

It indicates a growing trend toward the cathartic sharing of physical pain as well as emotional pain on social media.

"As technology and language evolve, so does the way we share our suffering. It is the first known study to show the instant and broad impact of migraine attacks on modern patients' lives by decoding manually each one of their individual attack-related tweets," explained Alexandre DaSilva, an assistant professor at University of Michigan's school of dentistry.

During the study, DaSilva's team eliminated advertising, metaphor and nonrelated migraine tweets.

Further, they analysed the meaning of each individual migraine tweet.

"We sought to evaluate the instant expression of actual self-reported migraine attacks in social media," DaSilva noted.

The US accounted for 58% of migraine tweets followed by Europe at 20%.

Roughly 44% of tweets reported that migraine attacks immediately impacted mood.

The most common migraine descriptors were "worst" at nearly 15% and "massive" at 8%.

Results generated unique information about who suffers from migraines and what, how, where and when they use social media to describe their pain.

Constant Therapy rolls out mobile, personalized brain rehabilitation via the iPad

A Boston startup is launching a mobile brain rehabilitation program for speech therapists to use with traumatic brain injury and stroke patients.
Anna Koczorowska's insight:

Anantha demonstrates Cognitive Therapy’s app in May 2013

After a stroke or traumatic brain injury, many people experience difficulty speaking or understanding what others are saying. The good news is that the brain is able to repair itself to some extent, with the help of cognitive and speech therapy programs. The bad news is, the rehabilitation process is expensive and can involve weekly visits to specialty clinics.

A startup called Constant Therapy converted years’ worth of aphasia rehabilitation research at Boston University into a digitized cognitive-communication therapy program that patients can use on iPads from their home

In-Depth: 200 medical apps every hospital marketer should know | mobihealthnews

In-Depth: 200 medical apps every hospital marketer should know | mobihealthnews | medical mobile app | Scoop.it

About nine months ago — in September 2013 — the MobiHealthNews team published results from an exhaustive search of Apple’s AppStore and the Google Play store for apps that were developed by or on behalf of hospitals and healthcare systems in the US. At the time we found more than 200 health-related apps in this category.

This list of apps is particularly important for hospital marketing departments to be aware of — which healthcare facilities have experimented with, piloted, and launched patient-facing iPhone and Android apps? What sorts of features do these hospital-branded apps offer users?

For this week’s In-Depth, MobiHealthNews is releasing our September 2013 hospital apps data to the general public for the first time — previously it was only available to those who purchased our research reports.

Below is our list of more than 200 medical apps (in alphabetical order) that every hospital marketing department should know:

Physicians use their smartphones for drug info | | medical mobile app | Scoop.it

According to the Wolters Kluwer Health 2013 Physician Outlook Survey eight in 10 physicians use Smartphones in their daily practice and six in 10 use tablets. Over half (55%) use both smartphones and tablets in their daily practice. The top use of smartphones is for accessing drug information while tablets are used most to access medical research. In addition, mobile apps are being used by 24% of physicians, making these the top digital/social media channel used for work purposes.

Anna Koczorowska's insight:

BARCELONA, Spain — We hear a lot of talk about wearable tech being the future, but most of the solutions are devices that require leaping into a new usage context, a learning curve that many are reluctant to take on.

However, the new smart hearing aid from Resound Linx is that rare piece of wearable tech that is not only practical, but immediately usable by anyone with a hearing impairment. Officially launched globally on Monday, the wireless Bluetooth device was developed by Denmark-based GN ReSound.

Implantable biosensor monitors real-time metabolism of drugs

Implantable biosensor monitors real-time metabolism of drugs | medical mobile app | Scoop.it

Researchers and collaborators of the Soh lab at UC Santa Barbara have developed an implantable device to monitor real time concentrations of medications in the blood. The device, called the MEDIC (Microfluid Electrochemical Detector for In Vivo Concentrations), aims to address an increasingly identified problem in medicine – that people metabolize and respond to the same medication at the same dose in very different ways. 


A great deal of focus has been on identifying genetic polymorphisms and other markers that can be used to identify patients who are either resistant to certain medications or at risk for adverse effects – think HLA typing prior to initiating Tegretol therapy. This device aims to open new opportunities into the personalization of medicine.
