4 ways Social Media can Transform Doctor-Patient Communication | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
See how a simple tweet can help change a patient’s mind. 

But what if you could connect with your doctor using social media, asking for advice by a quick Twitter or Facebook message? Your doctor responds within 24 hours, offering some quick tips and pointing you in the direction of some credible online resources. As a parent you feel relieved, empowered and thankful to have a doctor that is open to communicating with her patients online, instead of feeling left to blindly search on WebMD.com.

 
ET Russell's insight:

Good defination of a medical device, hence FDA.

 

"Broadly speaking; software is a medical device when it has a controlling function; such as drug delivery; x-ray intensity; defibrillation current and gas mixture administration. Software that is considered standalone or independent from other devices may also be considered a medical device when it is performing an action on data different from storage; archiving; lossless compression; communication or simple searching6.

 

If an application; regardless of platform; is deemed to perform any of the functions detailed above then the software needs to be registered as a medical device."

 

As a side comment Pharma have about 400 medical app, most of which would be defined as medical device

Spanish charity the Anar Foundation's poster can only be fully seen when looked at from a child's perspective.

 

When an child sees it, they see the message 'If somebody hurts you, phone us and we'll help you,' while an adult simply sees an image of a frightened child.
