Delivering care via video or smartphone is very different from being in the same room with the patient. It requires a skillset that some doctors don't have (and may never get). Here's what some telehealth providers are doing to make sure their docs are doing it right.

Telemedicine plan merits state support

Telemedicine plan merits state support | mhealth | Scoop.it
The Federation of State Medical Boards, composed of agencies across the country that license and regulate the medical profession, is crafting a legally binding interstate compact that would promote the use of telemedicine by simplifying the licensing process for doctors who want to practice in multiple states. “The compact would make it easier for physicians to get a license to practice in multiple states and would strengthen public protection because it would help state's share disciplinary information that they cannot share now,” Mari E. Robinson, executive director of the Texas Medical Board, told the New York Times. Some health care providers are already acting to fill the gaps and are using video technology to connect patients in rural communities with emergency medicine doctors at remote locations, Express-News medical writer Peggy O'Hare reported.

How's #Pharma Doing Putting the Patient at the Center?

How's #Pharma Doing Putting the Patient at the Center? | mhealth | Scoop.it

Opinions by David Youds, a medical communications consultant:


Is pharma currently succeeding at being patient centric?


To be honest, pharma isn’t doing well but there are some promising signs of improvement. The issue is that the industry is often guilty of saying it understands patients while more often than not it’s rhetoric. We need to understand individuals rather than just talking to patient groups to know what it really feels like to live with a condition or care for someone with one. After all, first and foremost, we are all individual.


Don’t get me wrong, patient group interaction is a great way to understand what patients’ needs are at a macro level. But I do feel there is a greater opportunity for interaction, with industry collaborating with societies to learn more about patients, and to feed that into future service improvements. Being patient centric isn’t about doing this as a one-off. It should be looked at across the board and at an individual patient level. 


We have been involved with a number of patient-focused research projects and the gratitude shown by the patients to the sponsoring companies for listening to, and involving, them has been humbling. Having a truly patient centric communication and support programme really helps to build mutually beneficial relationships between the patient, healthcare professional and sponsoring company.


What does a true patient-centric approach look like?

The title of this article a bit misleading - Apps could be useful but they are not, according to the author, because the data is not connected to physicians. The author doesn't address what could be a different major challenge to apps- sustainability of the interest of the user, and what about the efficiency of the activity itself...

Physician groups take closer look at telemedicine

Medical societies are joining the call for better support for telemedicine, stating that when appropriately used, it can help address physician shortages and improve quality of care.
The American Medical Association’s policy-making body – the House of Delegates – approved a set of guiding principles at its annual meeting in June, including the following:
• A physician should have a valid face-to-face relationship with the patient before telemedicine services are provided, except in the instance of on-call or cross-coverage situations.
