Infographic: Wearable Tech at the Intersection of Function and Fashion | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

From fitness trackers to smart watches, the trend in gear is tracking and customization. Once a status symbol for fitness-focused folks and tech geeks, wearable tech has become ubiquitous, as has the underlying concept of using passively tracked information for personal benefit.

 

 

 

 

But in sporting the new connected accessories, there's a fine line between looking sophisticated and helplessly nerdy. Fashion is as important to men as it is women—and the majority surveyed by Men's Health said they'd think twice before donning a connected coat.

14 Major U.S. Hospitals Now Using HealthKit as Apple Adds Health Industry Advisors

14 Major U.S. Hospitals Now Using HealthKit as Apple Adds Health Industry Advisors | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Fourteen major U.S. hospitals have rolled out their own trials of Apple's HealthKit tool, with the pilot program earning praise among doctors for its ease of use and advanced tracking of various health metrics, reports Reuters. 

According to the news agency, eight hospitals trying out HealthKit are on the U.S. News & World Report's Honor Roll which ranks the best hospitals, with the program seeing more of a positive reaction versus health tracking programs by Google and Samsung.


Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans has been working with Apple and Epic Systems, Ochsner's medical records vendor, to roll out a pilot program for high-risk patients. The team is already tracking several hundred patients who are struggling to control their blood pressure. The devices measure blood pressure and other statistics and send it to Apple phones and tablets. 

"If we had more data, like daily weights, we could give the patient a call before they need to be hospitalized," said Chief Clinical Transformation Officer Dr. Richard Milani.

E-Health Insider :: NHS launches mental health app library

E-Health Insider :: NHS launches mental health app library | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
NHS England has launched an online library of programmes and apps to support people with mental health conditions.

The library, launched yesterday, contains a list of digital tools endorsed by the NHS for use in clinical practice with an initial focus on depression, anxiety and improving access to psychological therapies.

It is available on the NHS Choices website and adds to the site’s existing health apps library, which recommends smartphone and tablet apps on healthy living, health information and several specific conditions.

NHS England said mental health was chosen as the first area of focus due to the growing evidence base demonstrating that online tools can be effective in mental health treatment, helped by the flexibility of online services and greater discretion for people who want privacy.

From beyond the pill to beyond the pixel: twelve digital health companies championed by Apple

As I watched the new “Strength” ad for the iPhone 5s, all the devices looked  like Apple accessories. Then I wondered how much the digital health companies  had to pay for such high-profile product placement. Finally I realized that  Apple would anticipate the “What app is that?” questions and have a list  somewhere.

Just as the company did with the April ad for the iPhone 5s – “Powerful,” Apple has a a  gorgeous “Explore More Apps from the Film” page listing all the apps  and linking to the App store. I have read press releases from many of these 12  companies. I have to say, it’s wonderful to see them get such a loud shout-out  from Apple.

Advertisement

Here are the companies whose products are shown in action in the ad.

Argus – Pedometer and calorie, nutrition and  activity tracker

Health Mate – Step tracker and life coach from  Withings miCoach smartball – Companion app for the $300  miCoach Smart Ball to improve soccer skills

Misfit Shine – Waterproof tracker made from  airplane metal and able to track running, walking, biking and swimming Nike+ Running – App to track your runs and help you  reach your goals

7 Minute Workout – A scientific, personalized  fitness workout in 7-minute intervals from Johnson & Johnson

Sprint Timer – Sports timer and photo finish app  that displays a finish line on the phone screen so you can see who crosses it  first

StrongLifts 5×5 Workout – Weightlifting app that  features three exercises, three times a week at 45 minutes per workout

TRX Force – Digital version of the 12-week  conditioning program used by the military

Wahoo Fitness – Running, cycling and fitness app  (in the ad it is shown timing a bike race) WeMo – App controls the WeMo Switch and WeMo  Motion, home automation devices (apparently this is what you need to start your  fitness routine in the morning) Zepp Golf – companion app for Zepp multi-sport  motion sensor, focused on analyzing a golf swing

Conveniently, the tagline from the “Powerful” ad fits this new ad as  well: “You have the power to create, shape and share your life. It’s right  there in your hand. Or bag. Or pocket. It’s your iPhone 5s.”

There was one digital health company in the “Powerful” ad, the Heart Rate Monitor by Azumio.

There have been many ongoing conversations about threats to pharma's visibility in digital environments emerging from outside the industry.

 

As hardware manufacturers align themselves with companies responsible for apps and peripherals compatible with their devices, another challenge to pharma's visibility and relevance in digital spaces has emerged.

Social Media is the Profound Change Fueling the e-Patient World

Social Media is the Profound Change Fueling the e-Patient World | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

This post is about an issue I plan to address during my visit at Mayo Clinic: the changing role of the patient and how that change is significantly powered by social media. Creating the best possible future for both patients and clinicians depends on our understanding this clearly and formally, so we can agree about what’s possible, and then practice health and care accordingly.

TransformationKnowledgeThe image at right is an updated version of a slide I’ve used for years. First published by MCCSM Advisory Board member Lucien Engelen – in 2010! – this visionary graphic illustrates how the internet has altered the flow of information.

When many of us were growing up, knowledge flowed within a truly closed system, but today it’s an open network of networks. Social media functions the way capillaries do in the body: information can flow around without centralized control. What was once never possible, is now essential. (See this simplified 50 second animated version of the diagram, first published by the BMJ.)

To understand this new future for patients and clinicians, we have to rethink things…and I don’t just mean technologically.

Most patients still don’t realize they can make real and valuable contributions, so, naturally, they haven’t worked at sharpening those skills. Nor do most clinicians realize that patient contributions and perspectives can be genuinely useful.

Still, there’s new and ever-emerging evidence that the medical establishment is accepting this movement toward enhanced patient collaboration. In 2012, in its report, Best Care at Lower Cost, the Institute of Medicine identified this as one of the four pillars of a learning healthcare system:

Patient/Clinician Partnerships
Engaged, empowered patients – A learning healthcare system is anchored on patient needs and perspectives and promotes the inclusion of patients, families, and other caregivers as vital members of the continuously learning care team.

And this is why I’ve announced my plan to kick off a formal project to explore a key question: Is it time for us to define a new science of patient engagement? More specifically:

Can we formally, methodically, rigorously identify what patients can now contribute to conversations about diagnosis and treatment that wasn’t possible or permissible in the past?
Can we figure out why in some cases patient engagement leads to real improvements in outcomes and costs, while in others it fails?
People have a tendency sometimes to speak of social media as if it were a magical universe inside of which amazing things happen, but nobody’s sure quite what or how.

I want to encourage people to think in concrete, specific terms about how valuable information truly flows to where it’s needed, because that is what makes new things possible – especially what makes possible the world of informed, empowered, engaged e-patients who truly are partners with the medical professionals.
