World’s smallest blood monitoring implant tells your smartphone when you’re about to have a heart attack

World’s smallest blood monitoring implant tells your smartphone when you’re about to have a heart attack | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

A team of scientists at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland have developed the world’s smallest medical implant to monitor critical chemicals in the blood. The 14mm device measures up to five indicators, including proteins like troponin, that show if and when a heart attack has occurred. Using Bluetooth, the device can then transmit the data to a smartphone for tracking.

iPhone : Unique technology helps keep patients connected | mobile_community | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

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.

 Through patient education and support technology becomes an enabler a tool for the patient to be empowered to monitor their health.
