Innovative care partnerships .. new engagements for collaboration between healt care and health industry

Innovative care partnerships .. new engagements for collaboration between healt care and health industry | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
As the health service grapples with the need to provide quality care while containing spiralling patient care costs (something all stakeholders will need to do for decades to come), the ability to manage care in a holistic, safe and cost effective way is a priority for commissioners. Choosing the best healthcare partner to deliver these often complex and detailed healthcare requirements is high on the agenda for many commissioners and with the recent changes to NHS commissioning and the publication of the Homecare Medicines Review guidelines, this task has become even more important to get right first time round. So what can you do to ensure the right partnerships are formed that best meet your individual service objective needs? First of all, the healthcare partner should offer a broad and integrated range of services such as medicines distribution/logistics, clinical homecare, medicines support, dispensing services, medicine preparation and clinical trial support. Not only does provision of these cohesive services avoid the need for other external partners and contracts, but it also creates the flexibility to add-on future services as end-to-end patient healthcare needs develop and expand. In addition, this fully integrated approach has a greater potential to lead to service efficiencies, flexible service delivery and improved patient care. .. The healthcare partner must help patients make better use of the medicines and therapies they are prescribed and by doing so, the NHS can be supported to deliver the demands of the Government's QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention) agenda .. .. Most importantly, a partner should be able to demonstrate a strong track record of patient-centric care that supports patients throughout their care journey... An aspect which is perhaps given less weight is the existence of shared values and complementary multi-disciplinary expertise between stakeholder organisations. In my opinion, evidence of this is critical to engender mutual trust and respect between both organisations, as no doubt the ability for co-operative working will be tested under the current challenging and changing healthcare environment. Ultimately, the true measure of success will be the strength of the relationship between the healthcare provider and partner as they work together in the pursuit of mutual goals to deliver the best possible care for their patients.

Google Co-Founders To Healthcare: We're Just Not That Into You

Google Co-Founders To Healthcare: We're Just Not That Into You | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
“Generally, health is just so heavily regulated. It's just a painful business to be in. It's just not necessarily how I want to spend my time. Even though we do have some health projects, and we'll be doing that to a certain extent. But I think the regulatory burden in the U.S. is so high that think it would dissuade a lot of entrepreneurs.”

Is Wikipedia’s medical content really 90% wrong?

Is Wikipedia’s medical content really 90% wrong? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

The journal article by Hasty et al. published on 1 May 2014 claims that most Wikipedia articles on important medical topics contain a large number of errors. The claim is based on a study of ten articles as they appeared on 25 April 2012. In nine of these the authors noted differences from a peer-reviewed source. The popular press, including the UK’s Daily Mail and BBC News, and the US-based Advisory Board, fueled by interviews with Hasty, has taken this to mean that as much as 90% of Wikipedia's medical content is wrong. However, we found that Hasty et al. used an unvalidated test of content quality and applied it to Wikipedia alone. Additionally, there were significant errors in study design and data analysis, and the authors' conclusions are not supported by the results.
