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?

Emma Sands's curator insight, December 4, 2:55 AM

The current target for wearables is the same as for gyms and sports clubs -  this leads to stats as commented in the article: "Less than half of people who own a wearable use it on a daily basis". Currently wearables are being treated as "add-on" to a healthy lifestyle, but form no real part of it. We need them to become "add-ins" (to coin a phrase), an integral part of health management within the home - the active-patient paradigm.

Very true.

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...

Digital and mobile health: can doctors and consumers get on the same wavelength? | Health Populi | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

PwC polled both providers and consumers to gauge their respective interests in digital health technologies. The chart illustrates that greater preference among consumers for five of the six technologies assessed, with the exception of patients doing urinalysis tests at home with a device on the phone, favorite by more doctors than patients (47% vs. 42%). Consumers prefer, in greater numbers,

Using an at-home strep test at a (retail) storeChecking vital signs at home with a device on their phone (with nearly as many doctors comfortable with this, 55% vs, 53%)Sending digital photo of skin problem to the dermatologistChecking for an ear infection suing a device on their phoneHaving an ECG at home using a device attached to a phone.
