Diabetes apps are now numerous but lack key features

Diabetes apps are now numerous but lack key features | Social Media in Healthcare #nhssm | Scoop.it

When it comes to the potential for digital health to radically improve chronic medical conditions, diabetes leads the discussion. Despite being an obvious market and the existence of literally thousands of apps claiming to assist with diabetes management, the diabetes app market remains relatively immature, with no clear dominating market leader. Therefore, researchers in Germany conducted a systematic review of diabetes apps for iOS and Android to assess the options currently available on the market

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics | Social Media in Healthcare #nhssm | Scoop.it

Sharing your infographic that’s hosted on your website/blog and engaging the social sharing potential is key to maximizing the work you put in to creating your infographics.  

Each social network has different image display requirements.

For example, tall infographics do not present well on Facebook. Facebook outlines horizontal images and a ratio of 1200 w x 627 h, meaning you may need to create some sharing images to drive social viewers to the main infographic.

 

The team at Lemonly put together a great infographic covering keys for social sharing on:

Robin Good's curator insight, April 27, 2014 2:28 PM



Bento is a website that, thanks to its author Jon Chan and the many user contributions, has gathered, organized and curated the very best resources available online where you can learn how to code.


From html to javascript, ruby, php, Java, perl, Bento offers learning guidance for over 80 different technologies and coding languages. 


Here is how Jon Chan, a 23 years old who launched this project in September of 2013, describes Bento: 

"Bento is what I would have liked to have when I was learning to code.


I started learning to code when I was very young - about ten years old. Then, the only things I had available were what I could find online and through a few dense books.


Now, people have the exact opposite problem: how do you break through the noise and find what's actually valuable to learn?


This site is here to help you figure that out."

 

Bento is a perfect example of effective content curation as it does not simply collect and list all of the resources available to learn each language but it only suggests the very best ones, organizing them in easy, medium and hard and providing also "best of" / direct solutions that save readers lots of valuable time.


Free to use. 


Useful, simple and immediate to use. Well organized. 9/10

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators | Social Media in Healthcare #nhssm | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article written by Dennis Shiao and published on Scoop.it Blog:
"Every time I visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, I see something I’ve never seen before.
Wouldn’t it be great if our content collections drew as much interest, respect and admiration as the collections at MoMA? In order to achieve this feat, we need to become highly effective content curators.
Let’s consider seven habits:


1. Focus on Goals

What are your goals around content curation? If you can’t answer that question, stop right now. Stop reading this post, too. Go answer the question, then return when you’re done.


2. Have Empathy

You’ll need to have empathy for your target audience. In other words, the better you understand their thoughts, interests and challenges, the more effective you’ll be at content curation.

3. Be Careful, Cautious and Selective
Make sure you read (and digest) every piece of content you curate. Curate high quality content only, leaving the marginal pieces to the proverbial cutting room floor.

4. Editorialize
Don’t just share content, tell us why you like (or dislike) the piece. What can your target audience learn from reading it and what are the key takeaways? In a sense, editorializing creates a nice blend of creation and curation.

5. Provide Attribution
Providing attribution shows respect and helps drive visibility and awareness to content authors. As you curate, look up the author of the article (or blog post) and explicitly acknowledge them.

6. Understand What’s Timely and Trending
Sharing fresh milk is good. Sharing spoiled milk is rotten.
If you find content that is time sensitive, consider whether the “sharing window” has already passed.

7. Have an Eye for a Great Title
Not everyone will be as thorough as you when reviewing content. A lot of people will click on a link solely because of a compelling title. As you sharpen your curating skills, you’ll begin to figure out what separates great titles from good titles. If you come across a great article that has just a good title, consider changing the title text when you curate..."

How to build successful mobile health applications: 4 key principles

How to build successful mobile health applications: 4 key principles | Social Media in Healthcare #nhssm | Scoop.it

There is a great deal of attention being paid to mobile health applications at the moment, especially in the context of wearable technology. For example, Samsung, Apple and even Google, have recently made clear the focus they will place on this exciting intersection of biology, medicine, healthcare and digital technology. 


However, some statistics suggest 90% of health apps are deleted or not used again after 10 days, so getting it wrong can be a terrible waste of investment. From my experience, there are four key principles that tend to define if an application in healthcare will work, and if it is likely to be used:.

- Sponsored vs Owned vs Influenced - and risk balancing
