Motorola wants to tattoo a smartphone receiver on your neck

Motorola wants to tattoo a smartphone receiver on your neck | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Google-owned smartphone maker Motorola has applied for a patent for an "electronic tattoo" on people's necks that doubles as a mobile microphone, lie detector and digital display.The tattoo would capture vibrations, or sound, directly from a user's throat, thus eliminating background noise that so often mars conversations over mobile phones.The sound would then be transmitted from the electronic tattoo, which has its own power supply built-in, to a nearby smartphone via Bluetooth, near-field communication, also known as NFC, or the wireless technology ZigBee."Mobile communication devices are often operated in noisy environments ... Communication can reasonably be improved and even enhanced with a method and system for reducing the acoustic noise in such environments and contexts," reads the patent."The system comprises an electronic skin tattoo capable of being applied to a throat region of a body."According to the patent, the device could also be used as a lie detector by measuring the skin's electrical conductance or "galvanic skin response" – the level at which electric current passes through something. "A user that may be nervous or engaging in speaking falsehoods may exhibit different galvanic skin response than a more confident, truth-telling individual," reads the patent.The tattoo could even be fitted with a display and user interface for inputting commands, such as muting the device and joining a group conversation.The device also has the potential to communicate with tablets and other mobile computing devices.The patent, titled ''Coupling an electronic skin tattoo to a mobile communication device'' was filed in May 2012, and was published on Thursday in the US.The neck tattoo is by no means the first foray into creative uses of technology for Motorola, which was bought by Google for $12 billion in 2011.The company revealed its work with digital tattoos and password pills in May this year, and just last week Motorola unveiled Project Ara – a modular smartphone users can build and add to themselves.It has focused on a new wearable tech unit since July, according to TechCrunch, while its parent company is hard at work on Google Glass, and is rumoured to be releasing a smart watch next year.more at: http://www.theage.com.au/digital-life/mobiles/motorola-wants-to-tattoo-a-smartphone-receiver-on-your-neck-20131108-2x5ae.html

Innovative care partnerships .. new engagements for collaboration between healt care and health industry

Innovative care partnerships .. new engagements for collaboration between healt care and health industry | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
As the health service grapples with the need to provide quality care while containing spiralling patient care costs (something all stakeholders will need to do for decades to come), the ability to manage care in a holistic, safe and cost effective way is a priority for commissioners. Choosing the best healthcare partner to deliver these often complex and detailed healthcare requirements is high on the agenda for many commissioners and with the recent changes to NHS commissioning and the publication of the Homecare Medicines Review guidelines, this task has become even more important to get right first time round. So what can you do to ensure the right partnerships are formed that best meet your individual service objective needs? First of all, the healthcare partner should offer a broad and integrated range of services such as medicines distribution/logistics, clinical homecare, medicines support, dispensing services, medicine preparation and clinical trial support. Not only does provision of these cohesive services avoid the need for other external partners and contracts, but it also creates the flexibility to add-on future services as end-to-end patient healthcare needs develop and expand. In addition, this fully integrated approach has a greater potential to lead to service efficiencies, flexible service delivery and improved patient care. .. The healthcare partner must help patients make better use of the medicines and therapies they are prescribed and by doing so, the NHS can be supported to deliver the demands of the Government's QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention) agenda .. .. Most importantly, a partner should be able to demonstrate a strong track record of patient-centric care that supports patients throughout their care journey... An aspect which is perhaps given less weight is the existence of shared values and complementary multi-disciplinary expertise between stakeholder organisations. In my opinion, evidence of this is critical to engender mutual trust and respect between both organisations, as no doubt the ability for co-operative working will be tested under the current challenging and changing healthcare environment. Ultimately, the true measure of success will be the strength of the relationship between the healthcare provider and partner as they work together in the pursuit of mutual goals to deliver the best possible care for their patients.

eMedToday's insight:

Their central thesis is that mobile health presents an opportunity for consumers to diagnose their acute symptoms and better manage their chronic conditions. This would promote patient engagement and partnership in care, they said. It would also provide greater convenience to patients, allow for more rapid diagnosis of acute problems, and reduce the number of unnecessary visits to physicians' offices and emergency departments, which would decrease the cost of care

Nitric oxide (NO) is one of the most important signaling molecules in living cells, carrying messages within the brain and coordinating immune system functions. In many cancerous cells, levels are perturbed, but very little is known about how NO behaves in both healthy and cancerous cells. “Nitric oxide has contradictory roles in cancer progression, and we need new tools in order to better understand it,” says Michael Strano, the Carbon P. Dubbs Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT. “Our work provides a new tool for measuring this important molecule, and potentially others, in the body itself and in real time.”
