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?

The market for wearable sensors is increasing dramatically. Devices are being designed to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems, according to Pathfinder Software. A new infographic from Pathfinder Software takes a look at the types of wearables available, how they are used, their wireless capability and other details on this technology. Thank you to Pathfinder Software for an educational Infographic. Also, thank you to the Healthcare Intelligence Network for having this Infographic on their site.

How technology can help tackle the rising cost of healthcare in Asia Pacific | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

Throughout the world, governments are grappling with the growing challenge of providing quality, affordable healthcare. Increasingly, they’re turning to technology for the solution.

In the Asia Pacific region, the challenge is particularly acute. Healthcare costs are rising and putting pressure on many government budgets. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare calculates annual spending on healthcare services now exceeds $A 6,200 per person. Other developed countries in the region are facing similar burgeoning costs.

White Paper - Patient Engagement Technology: Delivering Real Value to Hospitals and a Real Difference to Patients

White Paper - Patient Engagement Technology: Delivering Real Value to Hospitals and a Real Difference to Patients | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
Lincor Solutions is the leading provider of digital point of care service delivery. Our secure, robust and specifically engineered technology improves patient outcomes, increases efficiencies and reduces costs by delivering clinical applications, administrative functionality, communications, patient education and entertainment services, direct to the bedside.
ET Russell's insight:

Executive Summary:

Across every industry, electronic engagement tools help enhance the customer experience, create efficiency and deliver business value. The same is true in healthcare, where hospitals can improve clinical quality, patient satisfaction and care efficiency through digital patient engagement.

However, even in the U.S. — widely regarded as leaders in the adoption of healthcare computing — only about one-fifth of all hospitals have adopted electronic patient engagement technology, with many countries at a far lower level of penetration than this. i

The U.S. has seen more research in this area than any other country, and so this document uses much of this large body of evidence, to provide an evidence-based analysis of the total value creation — or return on investment — through cost avoidance, revenue generation and quality improvement, for hospitals that implement interactive patient engagement technology capable of delivering education, health information, communication tools and entertainment content, all at the bedside.

Proposed solution for the Challenge: Oral Cancer in India

Oral cancer is one of the few life-threatening conditions in dentistry. With approximately 650,000 new cases annually, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the eighth most common cancer worldwide.

Proposed solution: Implementing an mHealth solution for Prevention of Risk Factors

 

ET Russell's insight:

This project proposes the development of an mHealth solution for the prevention of risk factors for Oral Cancer.

 

The main idea is to:

- provide a mechanism for the users to have knowledge about oral hygiene and risk factors

- design strategies that could work for them in order to have desirable behaviours and reduce the risks.

- develop a mobile app using a behavior-change gamification framework with leading boards, badges, health knowledge quizzes, competitions, challenges, formation of teams, rewards, and others.
