79% Of People 18-44 Have Their Smartphones With Them 22 Hours A Day [STUDY]

Via Giuseppe Fattori, Nikos Papaioannou
eMedToday's insight:

The Smartphone is the 24/7 health assistant. All parties to the health system need to recognize this reality and develop services to match this fact. 

 

79% of smartphone users have their phone on or near them for all but two hours of their waking day; 63% keep it with them for all but one hour. A full quarter of respondents couldn’t recall a single time of the day when their phone wasn’t in the same room as them.

MIT finger device reads to the blind in real time

MIT finger device reads to the blind in real time | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
“ Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are developing an audio reading device to be worn on the index finger of people whose vision is impaired, giving them affordable and immediate access to printed words. ”The so-called FingerReader, a prototype produced by a 3-D printer, fits like a ring on the user’s finger, equipped with a small camera that scans text. A synthesized voice reads words aloud, quickly translating books, restaurant menus and other needed materials for daily living, especially away from home or office. “ Reading is as easy as pointing the finger at text. Special software tracks the finger movement, identifies words and processes the information. The device has vibration motors that alert readers when they stray from the script, said Roy Shilkrot, who is developing the device at the MIT Media Lab. For Jerry Berrier, 62, who was born blind, the promise of the FingerReader is its portability and offer of real-time functionality at school, a doctor’s office and restaurants. ‘‘When I go to the doctor’s office, there may be forms that I wanna read before I sign them,’’ Berrier said. He said there are other optical character recognition devices on the market for those with vision impairments, but none that he knows of that will read in real time. Berrier manages training and evaluation for a federal program that distributes technology to low-income people in Massachusetts and Rhode Island who have lost their sight and hearing. He works from the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, Massachusetts. ‘‘Everywhere we go, for folks who are sighted, there are things that inform us about the products that we are about to interact with. I wanna be able to interact with those same products, regardless of how I have to do it,’’ Berrier said. Pattie Maes, an MIT professor who founded and leads the Fluid Interfaces research group developing the prototype, says the FingerReader is like ‘‘reading with the tip of your finger and it’s a lot more flexible, a lot more immediate than any solution that they have right now.’’ Developing the gizmo has taken three years of software coding, experimenting with various designs and working on feedback from a test group of visually impaired people. Much work remains before it is ready for the market, Shilkrot said, including making it work on cellphones. Shilkrot said developers believe they will be able to affordably market the FingerReader but he could not yet estimate a price. The potential market includes some of the 11.2 million people in the United States with vision impairment, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates. Current technology used in homes and offices offers cumbersome scanners that must process the desired script before it can be read aloud by character-recognition software installed on a computer or smartphone, Shilkrot said. The FingerReader would not replace Braille — the system of raised dots that form words, interpreted by touch. Instead, Shilkrot said, the new device would enable users to access a vast number of books and other materials that are not currently available in Braille. Developers had to overcome unusual challenges to help people with visual impairments move their reading fingers along a straight line of printed text that they could not see. Users also had to be alerted at the beginning and end of the reading material. Their solutions? Audio cues in the software that processes information from the FingerReader and vibration motors in the ring. The FingerReader can read papers, books, magazines, newspapers, computer screens and other devices, but it has problems with text on a touch screen, said Shilkrot. That’s because touching the screen with the tip of the finger would move text around, producing unintended results. Disabling the touch-screen function eliminates the problem, he said. ”Berrier said affordable pricing could make the FingerReader a key tool to help people with vision impairment integrate into the modern information economy.

I would love to have this little item. With COPD, I'm monitoring 02 and Heart Rate quite often. On the treadmill, it's constant monitoring. 


And when taking a walk or working around the house, if I'm not wearing 02-- I'm monitoring the need for it. 


When you have an illness of any sort, monitoring vitals is definitely important.  And the ability to send a quick message to friend or family member for help when trouble arises-- is imperative. http:///ginghamcountry.com/living

PerfectServe DocLink: Talk and text in real-time

PerfectServe DocLink: Talk and text in real-time | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
To contact another physician, users launch the PerfectServe mobile application or dial the toll-free 855-DocLink number. The only information they need to initiate communication is the name of the colleague the user wishes to reach. PerfectServe DocLink allows individual contact status control, so users can select the following settings based on how they prefer to be reached during certain days of the week or throughout the day: available for real-time calls and secure voice and text messages; available for secure voice and text messages only; or unavailable — voice and text messages stored without notification. Market positioning (responses provided by PerfectServe DocLink): How does this technology enhance the physician experience or business operations within a small-medium sized practice? Using PerfectServe DocLink, a small or midsize practice can establish a private and secure communications network that connects all medical staff member users by allowing both real-time conversations and secure text messaging in a HIPAA-compliant environment, resulting in significantly improved physician workflow. With PerfectServe DocLink, physicians connect with one another quickly without having to search for phone numbers or navigate through switchboards, answering services or front-office staff. PerfectServe DocLink provides one-step access to every referring physician and medical staff member — which means better quality of care.What makes PerfectServe DocLink unique in the market? It enables both secure text messaging and real-time conversations. Sometimes physicians want to send a text. Other times they need to have a conversation. With PerfectServe DocLink, physicians choose the best communication mode for each clinical situation. What attributes interest your physician clients the most when it comes to messaging technologies? The ability to take nurses and staff out of the consult process by providing one-step, secure, real-time access to every referring physician and medical staff member (which speeds up cycle times). Other appeals include managing HIPAA-compliance risk across every communications mode; alerting multiple people simultaneously (which provides backup and quicker response time); determining how to receive different types of calls, giving personal control over how physicians are reached to the physician; automatically filtering all ePHI from the body of messages sent to non-secure mobile devices (e.g., pagers, email and SMS text); fewer interruptions for routine matters (nighttime messages can be held for morning delivery); and private phone numbers, which are kept private — an office caller ID can display instead of a personal cell number for patient calls.What are your development goals for this technology from now through the next two years? PerfectServe’s development goals are confidential but we continue to gather feedback from our users to guide our roadmap.Founded InWebsiteTwitterHeadquartersPricing1997Knoxville, TNN/AWant more?
