Healthy ageing: A utopia or an opportunity for new technologies? - mHealth

Healthy ageing: A utopia or an opportunity for new technologies? - mHealth | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

A drastic change is expected in the age structure of the European population. While in 2010 the more numerous age-group was people in their 40s, in 2060 it is predicted that it will be the group of these over 60 years old...

 

A series of problems (arise): from how can healthcare be provided to everybody, to how to pay the pensions of an increasingly old population, which also has less active people who contribute to taxes.

Many experts agree that new technologies, and mobile technologies in particular, can become a key factor in the solution of these new challenges. In fact, we have already manifold mobile solutions which can be useful in helping make ageing healthier. But they are not enough.

 

ET Russell's insight:

Joan Cornet Prat, Director. mHealth Competence Center, MWC leaves us with some food for thought:

 

- At the moment, Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is (allowing) digital monitoring of vital signs, easing the control of patients with chronic diseases and patient communication with health professionals.

 

- new technologies, and mobile technologies and mHealth in particular, are ready. Now it is time for governments and the people responsible for health and social welfare to put into motion the right strategies, taking into account all the factors that are part of elderly people's lives.

 

- key to the future does not lie on classifying people, but on personalising medicine and patient attention. And to this end, mobile solutions can play a major role. Technology is ready.

Victor Patterson's app for epilepsy fills a void of mHealth apps for epilepsy (less than 20 apps for the iPhone address seizure diaries, sleep and diet). In addition, it is important to note that is has been clinically tested. Unfortunately there is no information about the name of the app or how to download it.

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
10. Bipolar disorder

Demanding mHealth security in the cloud
mHealthNews
While proving their value, mHealth devices and applications cause stress for health IT teams because of these security issues and the HIPAA non-compliance threat they pose

 

With so many care providers using mobile devices at the point of care and with so many patients using the web for aspects of their medical care, there are an awful lot of mobile devices floating around that have access to confidential patient information.

That's a recipe for disaster.

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, 2014 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.

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

mHealth Solutions for the challenge of Oral Cancer in India

mHealth Solutions for the challenge of Oral Cancer in India | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

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.

ET Russell's insight:

To spark adoption and continue pushing mobile health forward, Wasden said companies must ask themselves how to create compelling consumer value propositions “so we will hit a critical mass and so that doctors will now incorporate it as effective medicine.”

There are six principles they can follow to do that, he said:

Make it easy to integrate into a patient’s lifestyle and a physician’s workflowMake it able to share information across various technology platformsMake it able to not just collect data but to create actionable insight that will change behaviorEnable users to share the information it collects and stores with others who support their behavior changeMake it fun to useMake it able to show a change in behavior and deliver better health outcomes
