I've always thought that it would be the mobile OS owners such as Apple and Google who would crack the universal EHR conundrum in a way that legacy vendors have spectacularly failed to do, but who knows? Maybe Amazon could do it first.

Mayo chief residents name Dave deBronkart as Visiting Professor in Internal Medicine | mHealth | Scoop.it

Wikipedia says "Participatory medicine is a movement in which networked patients shift from being mere passengers to responsible drivers of their health, and providers encourage and value them as  full partners.”

 

That movement gets a big boost in credibility today: the Chief Residents at the Mayo Clinic have invited SPM co-chair Dave deBronkart, a.k.a. “e-Patient Dave” to be their Visiting Professor in Internal Medicine next March.

 

The announcement is being made today, during the patient panel at Mayo’s sixth annual social media summit.

Apple will reject any wellness apps that store private health data in iCloud | mHealth | Scoop.it

Given recent events surrounding the security of cloud-storage accounts, Apple is keen to reassess any updates to iOS. The company has revealed that any Healthkit apps storing a user's private wellness data in iCloud will be flat-out rejected from the App Store. That same info, gathered by apps using the Healthkit API, is under even further restrictions when it comes to advertising and data-mining, as well.

Apple, con sus restricciones a las aplicaciones de salud para su nuevo sistema operativo, empieza a poner orden en un mercado que está desregulado, salvo en Estados Unidos, donde la FDA ya ha incluido indicaciones sobre dispositivos y aplicaciones destinados a diagnóstico y tratamiento.

#Telehealth only lead to modest improvement of #Diabetes management in this trial over 12 months. | mHealth | Scoop.it

The Whole Systems Demonstrator was a large, pragmatic, cluster randomised trial that compared telehealth with usual care among 3,230 patients with long-term conditions in three areas of England. Telehealth involved the regular transmission of physiological information such as blood glucose to health professionals working remotely. We examined whether telehealth led to changes in glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) among the subset of patients with type 2 diabetes.

The technology is new and patients need more than 12 months to make life-style behavior changes that lead to better, more effective management of the condition and reducing its effects.

The #Selfie Syndrome – Is Social Media Making Us All Narcissistic? [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter | mHealth | Scoop.it

The selfie, a very modern phenomenon where users take pictures of themselves that they then submit to one or more social media sites, seems harmless enough. After all, what’s wrong with sharing a photo showing us off at our best?

And sharing selfies is something that many of us like to do: hundreds of millions of self-shots get sent and exchanged on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat each and every day. But what if this is all indicative of something more troubling? What if the selfie overload points to a growing narcissism in our culture?

Check the infographic below for all the details, which comes courtesy of The Best Computer Science Schools.

The ethical imperative of diabetes interoperability

The ethical imperative of diabetes interoperability | mHealth | Scoop.it

Amy Tenderich writes:

 

The fact is, a handful of manufacturers currently have a stronghold on our diabetes data. Their systems collect this vital health data for us, but are designed to withhold it so that we rely on their products exclusively to access it, share it, or analyze it.

 

More and more patients are finding this intolerable, and are fed up with waiting for the Pharma industry to embrace long-overdue open standards.

 

I’m a bit obsessed with this issue myself, and made it the crux of this year’s DiabetesMine Innovation Summit event. And I keep hearing about patients who are taking matters into their own hands.  One of those is Benjamin West, a thirty-something type 1 software developer who lives in San Francisco and works at the networking company Meraki (they do the wifi for Motel 6 and Peet’s coffee). In his free time, he’s creating a web-based “sandbox” and recruiting other tech-savvy PWDs to help him crack the code on diabetes data sharing. No kidding!

 

“The pump is attached to you and is performing therapy on you. You have the right to know and have access to those medical records. But for some reason, pumps and glucose meters don’t operate that way. The only way to get those records is to go through the vendor. I think there’s a real ethical imperative here, an ethical wrong,” Benjamin says.

Sounds a lot like the ePatient Movement’s rally cry, “Gimme my damn data!”
