Alex Butler's curator insight, November 25, 1:14 PM

According to a new survey from Truven Health Analytics and NPR, 68 percent of American consumers are willing to share health information with researchers, but this group of people is more likely to be wealthy, well-educated, and young.


Truven surveyed 3,000 Americans via landlines, mobile phones, and the web, with the group filtered by generation, education level and income level. They asked questions about physician connectedness and data privacy.

10 Ideas That Are About To Change Medicine Forever

10 Ideas That Are About To Change Medicine Forever | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

The future of medicine has arrived.

No, we're not talking about robot surgeons, implantable memory-augmentation devices, or doctors wearing Google Glass. The game-changing innovations on this list are more than distant dreams or inventions no one really knows what to with yet. Most should be available as early as 2015.

 

Every year, the Cleveland Clinic comes up with a list of new devices or treatments that are expected to help improve our daily lives and reduce our risks of developing disease. Only time will tell whether their considerable promise pans out.

 

Here are the top 10 new medications, treatments, and technologies to watch for in 2015, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

How mHealth and data integration impact patient engagement

How mHealth and data integration impact patient engagement | Nursing Education | Scoop.it
Integrating data from mobile health applications and other sources with a patient's electronic health record (EHR) offers more data and greater patient engagement, but industry leaders encourage providers to carefully consider what--and how much--information to collect to ensure the information is useful to both providers and their patients.

Dr. Kevin McGuinness's curator insight, October 9, 10:18 AM

add your insight...

The author makes a very important distinction about patient engagement here.  mHealth (including the EHR) and mbHealth cannot become a generic market place or a data dump.  Patient engagement is about the patient and the health practitioner.For patient engagement to be credible, mHealth and mbHealth must be outcome-vetted within that relationship. 

 

Customer engagement, on the other hand, is what happens between health practitioners or individuals and health product vendors. Customer engagement is about sales outcomes right now, not health outcomes.

 

"Patient engagement" is not a euphemism for "customer engagement."  Lets guard against that.

Keith McGuinness's curator insight, October 9, 11:55 AM

Semantic note:


When physicians and EHR vendors use the phrase 'patient engagement' they are talking about increasing engagement between the the patient and the physician.  


When app developers uses the word 'engagement' (with or without the 'patient' suffix) they are, generally speaking, talking about increasing 'engagement' between a customer and an app.  


When an app developer and a physician talk, progress is slow because, with the rarest of exceptions, neither is fluent in the language of the other.    


Patient/customer engagement with mHealth apps in general and mbHealth apps in particular, is a dead-end without physician adoption.  And physician adoption of apps is a dead-end without a credible link between engagement and a specific health outcome.  


Vigisys's curator insight, November 2, 5:21 AM

Une intéressante réflexion sur le bénéfice patient que peuvent apporter l'utilisation de dossiers médicaux numériques partagés. Et la constatation qu'il faut certainement se concentrer sur les données les plus "rentables" en termes de santé, plutôt que de sombrer dans la tentation d'obtenir le dossier le plus complet possible.

"The best technology developers and chosen apps would be branded with the NHS logo."

Keith McGuinness's curator insight, November 14, 8:12 PM

Until apps measure and report their effect on specific relevant health outcomes, the word "prescribe" must remain in quotation marks.  


A doctor does not prescribe a drug without trustworthy evidence of effectiveness.  Why is an app different from a drug in this respect?  Because apps are not a safety risk?  Effectiveness is still the objective; is it not?

ABI adds that because of the growing interest in these devices, there’s a bigger opportunity for platforms that collect data from several devices and apps, for example Apple’s HealthKit

Google Glass App Connects Patients With Specialists Quickly | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

Navigating the healthcare system as a patient can be a real pain in the aspirin. You've got your annual checkups, and if anything looks fishy, bring on the wild goose chase of specialist visits. If you've ever been referred to a specialist, you've likely experienced weeks of waiting to get into his or her office, and then sat dumbfounded when you went through roughly the same procedure as you had with the first doctor, all to find out, "You're all good."

Remedy, a Google Glass application that connects physicians and specialists, is helping solve appointment overload by getting patients in front of the right specialists quickly and digitally.

Personal health is becoming increasingly mobile, and there are now thousands of apps aiming to address everything from lifestyle issues to chronic diseases. But can you trust these apps the same way you trust your prescribed drugs and medical devices?

 

Medical devices are generally regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and although the FDA reviews some apps, experts say the agency's power and efforts aren't nearly enough to cover the 97,000 and counting health apps out there that are transforming consumer health.
