Dissecting the role of Apple Watch in wearable health innovation | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

A truly connected healthcare ecosystem will take longer to develop than most predict and it's not yet proven the Apple Watch will be the groundbreaking device that will change the mHealth industry, according to David Lee Scher, M.D. However, the health consultant still says digital tech will have a huge impact on healthcare.

Les objets connectés dédiés à la santé et au bien-être se multiplient.. colliers, bracelet, vêtements, puces, patchs, montres.. toutes les formes pour un impact encore à évaluer.

La montre d'Apple est elle un succès ? des ventes records en quelques semaines avec 3 millions de montres vendues aux USA et 15 à 30 millions attendues pour la première année de vente..mais quelle place peut elle prendre dans la santé? ouvre t elle la voie à un nouveau marché de la e santé?

Validation, évaluation, labellisation.. autant de besoins qui apparaissent face à cette déferlante et qui permettront de distinguer l bon grain de l'ivraie.

A New App To Make Life Easier For Diabetics, Using Instagram

A New App To Make Life Easier For Diabetics, Using Instagram | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

After an initial diagnosis, diabetes sufferers often experience a period of shock when they learn that everything has to change. Turkish mobile operator, Turkcell, and agency R/GA London have created an app to make adjusting to the necessary life changes much easier.


Instead of trying to persuade sufferers to adopt entirely new habits, tools and behaviors to monitor the condition, "healthmetre" deploys Instragram, a tool many people already use and taps into behaviors that people already have.


R/GA designed healthmetre to be a more human way to manage diabetes and help patients develop new, more healthy habits in a way that feels natural and thereby, helping them reach a level of consistency.


The idea is to make using the app as simple as possible, helping people stay motivated, complying with treatment and keeping the lines of communication with medical staff open.


Diabetes is an increasing problem across the world and Turkey has been particularly affected. The most recent statistics (2014) from the International Diabetes Federation show that Turkey has the highest rate of the illness in Europe, with an incidence of 14.7%, much higher than countries like, for example, the U.K. (5.4%) or mid-ranked Germany (7.9%).


The results of the 18-month trial are highly encouraging. Treatment compliance increased by 54%. Blood sugar levels decreased by 27% and complication forecasts decreased by 37%.

Health wearables: Early days

Technology companies are developing a myriad of wearable health devices that can track physical activity, monitor glucose and even sense if the user falls. What do consumers think about wearables? What are the implications for the health industry?

New app tells you when sicknesses get close to you

New app tells you when sicknesses get close to you | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

The worst part of a sniffle or a sore throat is wondering what it is you're coming down with


A new app, called HEALTHYDAY, comes from a division of Johnson & Johnson and uses sickness-searching algorithms to take the guesswork out of your hypochondria by warning you when the flu is overtaking your neighborhood or pollen is driving allergies sky-high. as a kind of subtle advertising for its products.


The basic health tips the app offers up don't outright tell you which medicines to buy — instead they are each "brought to you" by one of the company's over-the-counter brands, which include Zyrtec and Tylenol.


The app's algorithm syncs self-reported data from local doctor's offices, Google searches, social media mentions on Twitter and Facebook and user data from people who use the app, then funnels it down into easily digestible trends, blurbs and infographics, according to McNeil's VP of marketing Katie Devine.


In San Francisco, for example, the app warns of a particularly high risk of allergies and cold symptoms and a middling likelihood of the flu.

The team wants to expand the app's features with more ailments and information once it has a bigger user base.

To avoid digital health failure, we need to design for behavior

To avoid digital health failure, we need to design for behavior | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Patient engagement has been called the blockbuster drug of the century. In the booming frontier that is digital health everyone is trying to activate and sustain end users. Despite digital health funding and healthcare consumerism advancing at a faster-than-ever pace, abandonment statistics reveal that approximately 50 percent of people who start using a digital health device stop using it within six months. Certainly more efficacy data is needed, but why, with such a proliferation of digital health solutions, are engagement trends so poor?

Why 2015 is the pivotal year for #digitalhealth | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
While we don’t truly know what the future holds, we all know that health is personal—and will need to be handled accordingly to optimize the progress that is possible with digital health.  

The mainstream healthcare consumer in 2014 embraced the ALS Ice Bucket challenge and panicked (rightfully so) about the staggering wake-up call of the Ebola outbreak. While the politicians in US played the Obamacare ping pong game, and Brussels accepted its first applications for eHealth projects as part of Horizon 2020, there was also a major undercurrent in how digital health and health IT have penetrated our everyday lives.

Global wearables market skyrockets, but growth will slow without innovation

Global wearables market skyrockets, but growth will slow without innovation | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

The global wearables market is enjoying its eighth consecutive quarter of growth, with vendors shipping out 11.4 million products in the first quarter of the year, according to a report from research firm IDC.

Those 11.4 million products are a 200 percent spike compared to the 3.8 million wearables shipped a year ago. However, continued growth is tied to innovation and whether industry leaders, such as Fitbit, and newcomers realize the user expectations regarding services and use.

Fitbit's leadership is tied to several factors, such as device quality and user experience, Ramon Llmas, IDC wearable research manager, told FierceMobileHealthcare via email. Llmas said he hopes the company doesn't have a knee-jerk reaction to run into the smartwatch market, following the release of Apple's Watch
