This infographic is in fact an ad for the company that published it but it has interesting stats.

Attitudes to technology must change to drive healthcare innovation | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
Health services are now expected to deliver quality care with a shrinking budget. The digital 'channel shift' could be the answer, but attitudes to technology in the sector must change.

Wearable Technology And Digital Healthcare Strategies Should Shift Focus To Chronic Medical Illness

Wearable Technology And Digital Healthcare Strategies Should Shift Focus To Chronic Medical Illness | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

As we marvel at the gadgets that companies such as Nike, Fitbit, Jawbone and Apple have recently produced and brought to market--gadgets that can record our heart rate, calories expended, and steps taken—one can only think of how this technology could likely be used on a greater scale to help those who truly need it the most: people with chronic medical illnesses such as emphysema, diabetes, or congestive heart failure.

ET Russell's insight:

I particular liked the acknowledgement that there is a need for integrated and coordinated healthcare.

 'Help caregivers work more as a team: 79% of physicians and close to 50% of consumers believe using mobile devices can help physicians better coordinate care.'

 

Everyone one has a role to play from the patient, caregiver, physician community and support groups. So how can we harness this concept and put it into action?

Very true.

David Greene's curator insight, December 5, 2014 12:33 PM

With the advent of all this wonderful technology we can't lose sight of initiating the care without assessing the patient's desire to participate...  Becoming partners in care seems to be the most effective way to help the chronically ill...

Linds's curator insight, December 30, 2014 7:25 PM

Those of us with chronic illnesses already have many medical gadgets, including portable heart rate monitors and EKGs, and simple blood pressure monitors.

Improving the Patient Experience | Google Glass [VIDEO] Appreciating a Doctor's Human Touch

Improving the Patient Experience | Google Glass [VIDEO] Appreciating a Doctor's Human Touch | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

There are lots of people who think Google Glass is the answer to many healthcare problems: emergency response, surgical work flow, patient interaction. The jury is still out on its value because the device is too new and not in wide enough circulation to be put to the test of reality.

 

Physician and writer Abraham Verghese uses Google Glass to explain how much a doctor can learn from a simple handshake and examination of a patient's pulse and skin.

ET Russell's insight:

Take an 18 minute break and watch at least Video 2. It would have to be one of the best talks I've heard this year on how one single act can improve the patient experience. This video is funny, clever, moving and very reassuring about the medical profession.

 

VIDEO 1: Demonstration via a Google Glass video that helps you appreciate a doctor’s human touch
VIDEO 2: Dr Abraham Verghese talk at TED IS about the the 

power of 'A Doctor's Touch'. @TEDtalks
