When hospitals share patient records, emergency patients benefit, study suggests

When hospitals share patient records, emergency patients benefit, study suggests | Mobile Health Trends | Scoop.it
As hospitals and doctors' offices across the country race to join online systems that let them share medical information securely, a new study suggests that these systems may already be helping cut unnecessary care. Fewer emergency patients got repeated medical scans when they went to a hospital that takes part in a health information exchange,according to new findings.

When phones are glasses, their manufacturers will be healthcare businesses

When phones are glasses, their manufacturers will be healthcare businesses | Mobile Health Trends | Scoop.it

Steve Mann says he’s the world’s first cyborg — and that you’ll join him as one pretty soon.

 

“It’s kind of obvious that everyone is moving along that trajectory,” Mann told The New York Times in an interview published on Tuesday.

 

Mann, a professor at the University of Toronto, is a big figure in the world of wearable computing, which he pioneered in the 1980s. His most recent project is EyeTap, a camera attached to his face that records what he sees.

 

Mann believes it won’t be very long until the likes of Apple and RIM follow Google’s lead and introduce their own head-mounted displays. This battle, he says, will eventually eclipse the smartphone one that the companies are waging right now.

 

[AS: Just as Nike is evolving from being a provider of sportswear to a healthcare company, so the convergence of interests that the manufacturers of wearable communications will precipitate may see Apple and Google becoming principally healthcare concerns]

GP Ratings is a different type of UK patient education app

GP Ratings is a different type of UK patient education app | Mobile Health Trends | Scoop.it

When it comes to patient education apps, physicians have a great selection. There are apps such as the Orca Health Decide series or the DrawMD visual education app series.

 

Some patient education apps are not focused on diseases or conditions but rather on the range and accessibility of services available to the user.

 

GP Ratings is the first app of this kind specifically for the UK which takes advantage of the recent GP patient survey conducted by the The UK Department of Health.

 

The app is designed to assist would be patients see ratings of their local GP surgery as deemed by information collected in a recent nationwide government study.

 

The app contains detailed ratings for the 8,300 surgeries in England. On average each surgery has 130 survey respondents for each of the questions below.

 

The measures are:

 

* Would patients recommend their GP Surgery to others?
* Are patients able to see a Doctor within 2 working days?
* Are patients satisfied with their ability to see a preferred Doctor?
* Are patients satisfied with the care they received?
* Do patients have confidence and trust in their Doctor?
* Do patients feel their Doctor involves them in decisions about their care?
* Are patients happy with the surgery opening hours?

 

The data is converted into a star rating so it’s easy to interpret. An average of these ratings is then taken and compared nationally to give an overall star rating.

 

Upon entering the app, each user is prompted to enter their postcode or alternatively search by GPS.

I was lucky enough to attend FutureMed (now called Exponential Medicine) this past November. The energy, enthusiasm, excitement and hope that all of the speakers exhibited about the future of medicine made me even more excited to work in the field I do. I can't wait to see how the intersection of health and technology reshapes our future, this article highlights just a few of those most prescient ways.

Six reasons why that app you just spent a chunk of your 2014 budget on is useless

Six reasons why that app you just spent a chunk of your 2014 budget on is useless | Mobile Health Trends | Scoop.it

Christopher Wasden's (PwC) six principles that drive the adoption of a successful mHealth app:

 

1. Integration: The app has to be integrated into the lifestyle of the patient and physicians have to integrate it into their workflow.

2. Interoperability: From a technological perspective, apps must share information and work across information technology systems.

3. Intelligence: It can’t just give you the data that you gave it. It needs to give you insights from the data that create changes in your behavior.

4. Social: You have to be able to share the information with a community that supports you in your behavior change.

5. Engaging: It has to be fun to use. You must want to use it and come back time and time again.

6. Outcomes: It has to collect information, show a change in behavior, and deliver better health outcomes.

 

Wasden: "If you look at the majority of apps out there, they don’t fulfill one of my six principles."

Andrew Spong's curator insight, January 25, 1:39 AM

Browse the Play Store and take a look at the app you commissioned last year.

 

Note how many times it was installed.

 

Divide the sum you paid by the number of downloads.

 

Pretty depressing, huh?

 

But hey, that was last year, right? "Fool me once," and all that.

 

Unless you've commissioned another app for 2014, that is.

 

If you have, now is the time to ask the agency to which you've just signed off a truckload of money to develop it to refute Wasden's principles in a compelling and quantifiable manner.

 

Then review your break clause and level of service agreement.

 

You can do better things with your money.

Sven Awege's comment, January 26, 1:26 AM
Can't disagree more Andrew, pharma definitely has it's place at the table, or carry on falling into oblivion in terms of engaging with the stakeholder! But also disagree with the PwC list of criteria - they'll only lead to internal roadblocks!!!! Yes, feeling a bit controversial today!

Google embarks on smart contact lenses for diabetics

Google embarks on smart contact lenses for diabetics | Mobile Health Trends | Scoop.it

Google has been working on smart contact lenses embedded with sensors "so small they look like bits of glitter" and an antenna "thinner than a human hair."

But these lenses aren't being developed to give people super-human sight or cast the Internet over their field of view -- rather, they could potentially help diabetics monitor their glucose levels.

Google announced Thursday that its been working on this secret project at its Google[x] research lab. Not only has it developed prototypes of these smart contact lenses, but it's also done multiple clinical research studies, met with the US Food and Drug Administration, and is looking for potential partners to bring the product to market.

"We're now testing a smart contact lens that's built to measure glucose levels in tears using a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material," the project co-founders Brian Otis and Babak Parviz wrote in ablog post. "We're testing prototypes that can generate a reading once per second."

Diabetes is said to be one of the fastest growing diseases in the world. According to Google, it affects one in 19 people around the globe. In order to keep blood sugar levels in check, diabetics must give themselves finger prick blood tests throughout the day.

These tests can be time consuming and painful. But they're crucial -- if glucose levels get out of control, diabetics risk damage to their eyes, kidneys, and heart.

For years scientists have been investigating other ways to test blood sugar levels. One branch of research has been exploring breathalyzers as a way to detect heightened glucose levels. Researchers have also looked into using tears for glucose tracking, which is where the idea of a contact lens came along.

 

Using tears is complicated, however, because it's been hard for scientists to collect tears for testing. So, it's still unclear how effective this body fluid works in measuring glucose levels. Additionally, this product is far off from any sort of mainstream use. Not only does Google need to find partners to get the contact lenses to market, but it also needs to go through the arduous FDA clearance process.

 

Besides blood sugar testing, Google also hopes that the smart contact lenses can warn users if their glucose levels are high or low.

"We're exploring integrating tiny LED lights that could light up to indicate that glucose levels have crossed above or below certain thresholds," Otis and Parviz wrote. "We hope this could someday lead to a new way for people with diabetes to manage their disease."
