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

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.
