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

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.

The market for wearable sensors is increasing dramatically. Devices are being designed to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems, according to Pathfinder Software. A new infographic from Pathfinder Software takes a look at the types of wearables available, how they are used, their wireless capability and other details on this technology. Thank you to Pathfinder Software for an educational Infographic. Also, thank you to the Healthcare Intelligence Network for having this Infographic on their site.

The tenth edition of Health Care Social Media Review.  This week’s theme is the role of social media in addressing, managing and preventing chronic diseases.   According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic diseases, also known as noncommunicable diseases (NCD), are a leading cause of death worldwide.  NCDs encompass four main groups: cancer, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disorders and diabetes; these diseases can affect people of any age and socioeconomic group.  As Kenneth Thorpe observed on HealthWorks Collective, “the key to addressing our greatest 21st century health care challenges—controlling costs while achieving improved health outcomes—lies in attacking chronic disease.”
