The Impact Of Telehealth On Healthcare Costs And Quality

The Impact Of Telehealth On Healthcare Costs And Quality | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
 

Telehealth has yet to mature fully as a process and a system for controlling medical costs. However, the evidence documented in trials indicates that the impact of telemedicine on cost and quality of healthcare is positive. As a class of technology, telemedicine is not new; it has been around for many years, reflecting the communications technology of each era. Primitive forms existed in consultations for remote communities by telegraph and later by radio.

The interactive nature of digital has made patients more involved in treatment delivery and more responsive to playing a role in their personal health outcomes. The technology enables diagnosis, gathering clinical information, and developing treatment plans. The studies reported here show that telemedicine has produced results that are competitive with in-person care and at less cost

How wearables and apps are revolutionizing personal health | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
We’ve all heard about electronic health records, fitness apps for your smartphone, and wearable fitness trackers. Mobile health (mHealth) is no longer the new kid on the block. It’s here to stay, and now we’re moving into the phase where wearables are a part of the mainstream lifestyle.How many of your friends, family members or co-workers have a MapMyRun app on their phone, or are wearing a FitBit? Chances are, a lot of them. In fact, Forrester reported in 2015 that 20 percent of Americans have admitted to owning and using a wearable fitness device.

Why the NHS should prescribe wearable fitness trackers | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

It’s not yet clear whether wearable fitness trackers, such as Fitbits, Jawbones and Microsoft Bands, really do encourage us to become healthier over the longer term. They might make us move more and eat healthier in the first few days of strapping them around our wrists, but how long before the novelty wears off?

Deepak Chopra launches Jiyo, a wellness-focused mobile app

Deepak Chopra launches Jiyo, a wellness-focused mobile app | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Deepak Chopra, a leading figure in the alternative health movement, is moving into the mobile app business with the launch of Jiyo.

Chopra and his co-founder Poonacha Machaiah have been talking about Jiyofor a while, but today the app is generally available on iOS and Android.

We got a quick demo yesterday, with Machaiah explaining that one of the goals is “no typing”. Using data from the sensors in your phone and other fitness devices, Jiyo gives you tips for brief tasks that are supposed to improve your well-being, like doing a stretch after a long flight, or meditations and other routines that might improve your sleep if you haven’t been sleeping well.

The app includes social features, plus content from health and wellness experience like Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. Mark Human, Kimberly Snyder and Eddie Stern. In addition, Jiyo is partnering with Gallup to offer a StrengthsFinder that helps users identify and reinforce their personal strengths, and it’s partnering with Mindbody to offer access to a wellness-related classes and activities.

How Wearables Are Revolutionizing Healthcare

How Wearables Are Revolutionizing Healthcare | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
t’s estimated that wearables technology and remote patient monitoring technologies could cut hospital costs and save more than $200 billion.

The use of wearable technology is still in its infancy but is growing at a rapid pace. 1 in 5 Americans now owns a wearable tech device.  56% of those consumers believe that the average life expectancy increases 10 years due to wearables monitoring vital signs.

The future of wearables will not only help to cut healthcare costs for both consumers and employers, but can also provide numerous benefits for both insurance providers and subscribers.  Long-term wearable tech benefits include real-time payment adjustments, health lifestyle rewards as well as the ability to track recovery from medical procedures.
