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.

The doctor live tweeted her inpatient experience, citing multiple mistakes and abysmal bedside manner. In doing so she attracted a huge audience of patients and healthcare providers alike, chiming in on the conversation and sharing her frustrations. Kate single handedly sparked a debate about patient care in the US and the power of social media to evoke change in healthcare.

Patient Experience: A personal case for utilizing Health Information Exchange

Patient Experience: A personal case for utilizing Health Information Exchange | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
the patient experience as well as the cost of care both locally and nationally can be dramatically improved through health information exchange adoption, use.
ET Russell's insight:

This article provides an example of a patient's journey without Health Information Exchange. The impact to the patient as well as the system.

 

It  reinforces the importance of the need for medical records to be accessible at the point of care and to follow the patient .in and out of the system.

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
