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

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.

Is mHealth For Everyone? - | Power Your Practice

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

News+Hospital+Facebook Page+Patient Education = Leverage and Outreach

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.

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

Part of the treatment process at The Hospital for Sick Children (or SickKids, a leading pediatric oncology facility) involves patients keeping detailed pain journals every day. Unfortunately, children who have just undergone chemotherapy often feel too weak, tired, or discouraged to pick up a pen and do the work. Enter Cundari and its solution: the Pain Squad Mobile App, an iPhone touchscreen interface that not only makes it easy for patients at SickKids to fill out the journals, but also gives them a sense of purpose.

Patient engagement, mobile health and meaningful use | mHealthNews

Patient engagement, mobile health and meaningful use | mHealthNews | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
With the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, mobile technologies are quickly being adopted as a means to alleviate certain physician pain points and strengthen patient self-management. The recently released Meaningful Use Stage 2 objectives hold a larger focus on patient engagement, and mobile health holds promise as a key tool in helping organizations address these requirements. In fact, many of the engagement objectives that were optional in Stage 1 – such as patient reminders and education resources – are now required in Stage 2. Additionally, many of the Stage 2 rules reference the delivery of results directly to patients.
