Wearables 2015: Defining digital medicine

Wearables 2015: Defining digital medicine | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Digital medicine is poised to transform biomedical research, clinical practice and the commercial sector. Here we introduce a monthly column from R&D/venture creation firm PureTech tracking digital medicine's emergence.

 

Technology has already transformed the social fabric of life in the twenty-first century. It is now poised to profoundly influence disease management and healthcare. Beyond the hype of the 'mobile health' and 'wearable technology' movement, the ability to monitor our bodies and continuously gather data about human biology suggests new possibilities for both biomedical research and clinical practice. Just as the Human Genome Project ushered in the age of high-throughput genotyping, the ability to automate, continuously record, analyze and share standardized physiological and biological data augurs the beginning of a new era—that of high-throughput human phenotyping.

 

These advances are prompting new approaches to research and medicine, but they are also raising questions and posing challenges for existing healthcare delivery systems. How will these technologies alter biomedical research approaches, what types of experimental questions will researchers now be able to ask and what types of training will be needed? Will the ability to digitize individual characteristics and communicate by mobile technology empower patients and enable the modification of disease-promoting behaviors; at the same time, will it threaten patient privacy? Will doctors be prescribing US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared apps on a regular basis, not just to monitor and manage chronic disease but also to preempt acute disease episodes? Will the shift in the balance between disease treatment and early intervention have a broad economic impact on the healthcare system? How will the emergence of these new technologies reshape the healthcare industry and its underlying business models? What will be the defining characteristics of 'winning' products and companies?

 

These are just some of the questions we plan to ask over the coming months. In the meantime, we introduce here some of the key themes shaping R&D in the digital medicine field and focus on what they might mean for the biopharmaceutical and diagnostic/device industries.

The Top 3 Medical Device Applications for 3-D Printing

The Top 3 Medical Device Applications for 3-D Printing | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
SOURCE May 5, 2015 What are the best uses for 3-D printing in medical devices today? The medical device industry is embracing 3-D printing for a range of applications that include true medical devices and clinical use, and not just for medical or health-related products. We look at the three top reasons to consider 3D printing for medical devices by examining specific applications best suited for the state of the additive manufacturing technology. Background Medical devices are regulated and categorized according to risk level, which in general reflects the rigor required in their development. The adoption of 3-D printing for medical devices is in part gated by the rigor in verification and validation of designs and processes that are required with particular consideration of mechanical and thermal properties, and biocompatibility. There are several different 3-D printing methods for both metal and plastics. They all inherently involve fabricating the part one layer at a time. For

Apple Watch Requires Mobile Engagement to Go From Good to Great

Apple Watch Requires Mobile Engagement to Go From Good to Great | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
With the Apple Watch now available to consumers around the world, it’s more important than ever for brands to ensure that their mobile engagement strategy is Watch Ready.

“Glanceable moments,” (think ‘the time it takes you to sneeze’) will become the new currency of mobile engagement as 40 percent of consumers are tired of pulling their phone out of pockets or purses to see what just happened—something they do 150-200 times per day.

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.

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.
