Patients have the power to make doctors more digital

Patients have the power to make doctors more digital | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

How do we engage these new digitally-empowered health care consumers?

At a recent health conference, doctors Danny Sands and Ted Eytan said the answer was simple.

If you want people to participate more in their health care, you have to start by finding physicians who actually want them to do so.

  • If your doctor doesn’t use electronic medical records—and encourage you to access and understand them—find a new doctor.
  • If your doctor isn’t interested in what you’re reading about your condition online, find a new doctor.
  • If your doctor doesn’t use connected technologies to communicate with you outside the exam room, find a new doctor.
  • It’s an issue that’s bigger than doctors, bigger than any individual health care system.

What Sands and Eytan uncovered is a new divide in health care. It’s not the haves and have nots; not the sick and the well; or even the digitally-connected and unconnected. Instead, it’s in the culture of the providers we choose.

It’s the divide between the companies, individuals and practices that invest in very human experiences around the moment of care and those that do not. It’s the gap between the ones that build the new interactions people want and those that do not.

Think about that question way beyond the exam room:

  • Does the brand that makes your diabetes drug deliver it in a super simple auto injector that looks like it was designed by Apple? Or do they expect you to manage a handful of vials and tools to measure each dose?
  • Does your urgent care queue you up in a long line? Or do you swipe a card to easily check-in, airline-style?
  • Does your pharmacy automatically fill every prescription you bring in or do they ask hard questions and help you figure out how it all works together?

mDiabetes: Putting Health Information Literally Into the Hand of Consumers

mDiabetes: Putting Health Information Literally Into the Hand of Consumers | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Diabetes is rampant in India – 60 million-plus Indians are currently living with the disease and one million die from it each year. Furthermore, Indians tend to get the disease at an earlier age – often in their 30s and 40s – during their prime earning years.

In September, Arogya World announced that we have reached more than 1,000,000 people from all over India with a series of 56 diabetes prevention and education text messages in 12 languages, fulfilling a Commitment we made at the 2011 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting. Analysis of the program is ongoing, but initial results look very promising.

Following the program, consumers’ awareness of diabetes and its complications increased, and promising trends in behavior change included:

an 11% increase in daily exercise,a 15% increase in the intake of 2-3 servings of fruits a day,and an 8% increase in 2-3 servings of vegetables a day.

Prevention is Key

Photo Credit: Nokia

The WHO says that approximately 80% of heart disease and diabetes and 40% of cancers can be prevented through healthy lifestyles such as avoiding tobacco use, eating healthy foods and increasing daily physical activity. We decided to “go big” with mDiabetes because we know that it is a sustainable and scalable model for disease prevention that can be rolled out in countries around the world. And mobile phones are our technology of choice because they are widely used globally – with about 900 million cell phone subscribers in India alone.

How mDiabetes Works

In 2012, Nokia Life helped Arogya World recruit 1,052,633 consumers who opted-in to receive mDiabetes text messages. Messages were provided free to subscribers twice a week for six months. Participants came from all over India and a variety of socio-economic backgrounds.

Arogya World developed the 56 text messages with Emory University in late 2011, based on science and behavior change theory, and then, with Ipsos, consumer-tested them in simulated conditions as well as in the real world. Nokia Life provided the translation and transmission infrastructure, and transmitted more than 56 million mDiabetes text messages to the consumers throughout 2012.

We’re Not Done Yet

After we complete analysis of the first million, Arogya World plans to scale-up the program to reach and help millions more in India and beyond.  Future plans include partnerships with global health organizations, governments and private sector partners to expand the program even farther. We’re also exploring the development of a diabetes prevention “app” for consumers, as well as multimedia content on complications of diabetes and other non-communicable diseases.

mDiabetes, the largest diabetes prevention mHealth program in the world, was designed and implemented by Arogya World in partnership with Nokia Life.  Other partners include Emory University, Johnson & Johnson, and Ipsos.

La tecnología ha dejado de ser un obstáculo para los pacientes, incluso para los mayores, debido a la generalización de los smartphones y a los dispositivos wearables, que se integran en la ropa y complementos, y que no necesitan conocimientos tecnológicos del usuario para poder monitorizar la salud y comunicarse con los profesionales sanitarios. En el I Congreso de Wearables y Big Data en Salud se presentarán ejemplos de esta tecnología intuitiva y útil para pacientes crónicos o dependientes, así como para quienes apuestan por la prevención.

In-Depth: Analysis of 137 HealthKit-enabled apps

In-Depth: Analysis of 137 HealthKit-enabled apps | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
This week MobiHealthNews once again rounded up an up-to-date list of health and wellness apps that connect to Apple’s HealthKit, a health and fitness data exchange that makes it easier for iOS apps to share data with each other. For this week’s in-depth report, MobiHealthNews analyzed the ways in which these 137 health and wellness apps are integrating with HealthKit. Some only pull data from HealthKit, while others only push data into HealthKit for other apps to use. A good number — about 20 percent — do both.

This is almost certainly not an exhaustive list — apps continue to add HealthKit integrations everyday and Apple is slowly adding new fields to its platform. We also found two or three apps that claimed to connect to HealthKit but didn’t make clear exactly what kinds of data they were sharing or pulling. We left these puzzling apps out of our analysis.

While HealthKit makes it possible to share dozens of different types of health and fitness data, most HealthKit-enabled apps are making use of the same few data points. Active calories and weight data are both among the top three most popular data types to push or pull from HealthKit. Heart rate data and step count is right up there, too.

Based on MobiHealthNews’ analysis, here’s a quick breakdown of the top 10 most popular data types pushed to HealthKit and the top 10 most pulled: 

Number of apps pushing various kinds of data (or “writing”) to Apple HealthKit.

34 percent of HealthKit apps (46) are pushing active calories data.20 percent of HealthKit apps (28) are pushing weight data.18 percent of HealthKit apps (25) are writing heart rate data.18 percent (24) are pushing workouts data to HealthKit, even though the Apple Health app doesn’t have such a field.15 percent of HealthKit apps (21) are feeding step count data into the platform.15 percent (20) are sharing walking and running distance data with HealthKit.10 percent of HealthKit apps (14) are pushing out sleep analysis data.9 percent (12) are sharing nutrition data with the HealthKit ecosystem.8 percent (11) are pushing out blood pressure data with HealthKit.7 percent of HealthKit apps (9) are writing cycling distance data.

Number of apps pulling various kinds of data (or “reading”) from Apple HealthKit.

23 percent of HealthKit apps (32) are pulling weight data.16 percent (22) are integrating step count data from HealthKit.12 percent (17) are using active calories data from the platform.10 percent of HealthKit apps (14) are using heart rate data pulled from the system.10 percent (14) are pulling down blood pressure data from HealthKit.9 percent (13) make use of walking and running distance data retrieved from HealthKit.9 percent (13) are pulling nutrition data from HealthKit.9 percent of HealthKit apps (12) are using sleep analysis data from the platform.7 percent of HealthKit-connected apps are using the platform to pull in a user’s height.7 percent (9) are pulling in a user’s birthdate from HealthKit.

We’ll share topline metrics on pricing data for these 137 apps later in this in-depth.
