Physicians beware: If you don't offer telehealth services you may start losing patients to those that do. 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.

There are many words of wisdom that I can still hear my Mom repeat to me over and over again "An apple a day keeps the Dr. away" or "Eat your vegetables before you leave the dinner table" now both of those sayings ring more true because we have scientific proof that eating more fruits and vegetables support brain health.

Thanks Mom!

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.

The Rise of Consumer Health Wearables: Promises and Barriers

The Rise of Consumer Health Wearables: Promises and Barriers | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Will consumer wearable technology ever be adopted or accepted by the medical community? Patients and practitioners regularly use digital technology (e.g., thermometers and glucose monitors) to identify and discuss symptoms. In addition, a third of general practitioners in the United Kingdom report that patients arrive with suggestions for treatment based on online search results [1]. However, consumer health wearables are predicted to become the next “Dr Google.” One in six (15%) consumers in the United States currently uses wearable technology, including smartwatches or fitness bands. While 19 million fitness devices are likely to be sold this year, that number is predicted to grow to 110 million in 2018 [2]. As the line between consumer health wearables and medical devices begins to blur, it is now possible for a single wearable device to monitor a range of medical risk factors (Fig 1). Potentially, these devices could give patients direct access to personal analytics that can contribute to their health, facilitate preventive care, and aid in the management of ongoing illness. However, how this new wearable technology might best serve medicine remains unclear.

Les Wearables sont très attendus, mais quid de la fiabilité et de la sécurité des données ?
JEAN PASCAL POISSONNET's curator insight, January 10, 10:43 AM
A comprehensive work on wearables and health particularly to the point, when handling the question : do wearables affect wearers behaviour? The answer seems to be : yes but marginally and not over a long period of time. Promises are better identified in the case of follow up for patients with serious or chronic diseases. Seems to me that patients will more and more make the difference between wearables for well being and wearables that clearly bring an added value where heath stakes are higher. So will doctors.
