ET Russell's insight:

"the application has many uses: it makes insulin recommendations based on the individual's actual intake of carbs and blood glucose levels, allows cloud-synchronization, considers the exercise tracking, and offers a preventative medicine approach based on the individual's medical history and behaviour patterns."

Is mHealth For Everyone? - | Power Your Practice

Is mHealth For Everyone? - | Power Your Practice | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

By most accounts, the booming mHealth market is a blessing for patients wanting an easier way to access medical information. However, it may surprise you that not all patient groups are taking advantage of this convenient source of health knowledge.

ET Russell's insight:

Healthcare research group Manhattan Research's study suggests smartphones have become, for many, an indispensable source of healthcare information. Based on responses from more than 8,600 U.S. adults, the research group found that 95 million Americans are currently using their smartphones for health information – up 27% from a year ago.

 

a list of the top ten patient conditions most likely to use mobile health solutions:

1. Cystic fibrosis
2. Growth hormone deficiency
3. Acne
4. ADD/ADHD
5. Hepatitis C
6. Migraine
7. Crohn’s disease
8. Chronic kidney disease
9. Generalized anxiety disorder
10. Bipolar disorder

Part of the treatment process at The Hospital for Sick Children (or SickKids, a leading pediatric oncology facility) involves patients keeping detailed pain journals every day. Unfortunately, children who have just undergone chemotherapy often feel too weak, tired, or discouraged to pick up a pen and do the work. Enter Cundari and its solution: the Pain Squad Mobile App, an iPhone touchscreen interface that not only makes it easy for patients at SickKids to fill out the journals, but also gives them a sense of purpose.

Patient Centered Care: The NEW “4 P’s” of Marketing for Non-Profits – Purpose (mobile APP)

Patient Centered Care: The NEW “4 P’s” of Marketing for Non-Profits – Purpose (mobile APP) | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

The NEW “4 P’s” of Marketing for Non-Profits: Purpose, Presence, Proximity, and Partnerships.

 

Let’s start with the heart and soul of every Non-Profit organization

      – What is its “Purpose”?  Why does your organization exist?

 

When you visit the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto’s website you will find they have done a nice job of tackling the five major goals and target audiences associated with running a hospital.  However, the launch of the Sick Kids “Pain Squad” app is truly extraordinary. 

 

ET Russell's insight:

Working in healthcare, I believe the 4 Ps are so applicable and being reminded about the 'heart and soul' is refreshing.

 

What is our purpose (responsibility) as an organisation, in my role within healthcare, but also what is the purpose (responsibility) of our consumers, patients and the community?

Mobile Health helps decrease burden on patient travel and dropout rate from nutrition program: Operation Smile India | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

This mobile phone application will be used by the cleft nutrition team at Operation Smile’s Guwahati Comprehensive Cleft Care Centre’s to track the nutritional status of patients who are currently too malnourished to receive surgery. The cleft nutrition team currently has a list of over 400 patients across the state of Assam they are tracking, many of which are not able to return to the center for nutrition follow-ups due to geographic, logistic, and financial barriers. This application will allow Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) to travel to the patients’ homes, collect critical health information, and offer nutritional counseling to the families. The data will be held on a server that the nutrition team can access from any computer, anywhere and will greatly decrease the burden of travel on the patients’ families as well as the dropout rate from the nutrition program

Victor Patterson's app for epilepsy fills a void of mHealth apps for epilepsy (less than 20 apps for the iPhone address seizure diaries, sleep and diet).

A new initiative that uses technology to help better connect patients with their health-care provider.

Called Telehomecare, the initiative assists patients manage obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure (CHF) conditions through in-home monitoring equipment and health coaching done by registered nurses remotely.r

ET Russell's insight:

What I think is valuable about this program is the collaborative approach between the patient's healthcare provider, nurses and the patient.
