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.

Patient Digital Health Platforms (PDHPs): An Epicenter of Healthcare Transformation?

Patient Digital Health Platforms (PDHPs): An Epicenter of Healthcare Transformation? | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

These new platforms should be high on the radar screens of healthcare providers. While v1.0 of PDHPs is starting fairly narrow, companies will be high incentivized to move up the food chain into mainstream health data exchange, workflow integration, and virtual care delivery. PDHPs portend both opportunities and threats.

 

I’ll pose and provide some early answers to how the PDHP ecosystem might shape up. Here’s a preview:

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.

News+Hospital+Facebook Page+Patient Education = Leverage and Outreach | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
Hospitals can use social media to leverage education and news events to reach current and future patients and provide a valuable service.
ET Russell's insight:

This article may be a little bit old since it was originally published. But the message I believe is still so very relevant.

 

Whether we are in the health arena or other. There are never ending opportunities to promote health messages and develop the health literacy of our communities.

 

It is about leveraging of events, circumstances, people stories (maybe a celebrity being admitted to your hospital), looking beyond the incident and leveraging off it to reach to the community with a health message.

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.
