Providers embrace Apple's push into healthcare | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
More healthcare providers are turning to Apple products to help patients access medical records and improve engagement, a shift that is likely to grow given the company’s expanding interest in the healthcare industry. Health systems like Cedars-Sinai Health System in Los Angeles, Parkview Medical in Colorado and Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans are integrating iPads and Apple Watches into their system, giving patients new insight into their care by allowing them to easily access and transport their medical records.

How do young adults engage with online health information?

How do young adults engage with online health information? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Social media, from blogs and wikis to sites such as Facebook or Twitter, are now common features of everyday life for many people. They provide the opportunity to share experiences of illness and to learn from the shared experiences of others, and previous research has shown this is particularly the case for people managing long-term health conditions.

The authors of this recent study (Fergie et al, 2016) wanted to explore not only how young adults with chronic conditions engage with health information they find online, but also how they contributed as ‘producers’ of that online information.

A fifth of consumers say they'd swap doctors for one that offered telehealth services, American Well surveys say | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

American Well, a telehealth company that partners with dozens of health systems nationwide, said according to the results of their 2017 Consumer Study, 20 percent of respondents would switch their primary care physician to another one in their area if they offered telehealth visits. That amounts to 50 million Americans, American Well said.

Wearable sensors can tell when you are getting sick, study shows | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Wearable sensors that monitor heart rate, activity, skin temperature and other variables can reveal a lot about what is going on inside a person, including the onset of infection, inflammation and even insulin resistance, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. An important component of the ongoing study is to establish a range of normal, or baseline, values for each person in the study and when they are ill. "We want to study people at an individual level," said Michael Snyder, PhD, professor and chair of genetics.
