Mobile Healthcare Faces The Future [Infographic]

Mobile Healthcare Faces The Future [Infographic] | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

The Mobile Revolution continues to change how industry after industry goes about day-to-day business. Yet one industry has been surprisingly slow to embrace the benefits of mobile: healthcare. Many observers find that strange, since healthcare could clearly benefit from the power of smartphones and tablets attached to the cloud.

ABI: 100M remote patient monitoring wearables to ship in next 5 years | mobihealthnews | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

Over the next five years, ABI Research expects 100 million wearable remote patient monitoring devices to ship.

 

This growth, ABI said, is in part a result of providers who are more aware of the benefits remote patient monitoring wearable devices can provide to patients outside of the hospital. 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

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.

Is That App FDA Approved? Mobile Health Tech Falls Into Gray Area

Is That App FDA Approved? Mobile Health Tech Falls Into Gray Area | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

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.

The Promising Role of Social Listening in Treating Health Issues

The Promising Role of Social Listening in Treating Health Issues | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

Even with drug makers’ recent increases in digital spending, the pharmaceutical industry is repeatedly said to be a laggard in terms of its speed in adoption of social media.

 

Among the 50 largest manufacturers worldwide, more than half still do not use it to actively engage consumers or patients. Most of them use social media as a unilateral broadcasting channel and no more than ten are on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

 

Pharmaceutical companies largely avoid involvement, cowering from regulatory wrath. They fear a loss of messaging control, privacy concerns and a lack of familiarity with community building. In addition, they struggle to quantify a return on investment.

 

So how do you actually know what physicians are saying about your drug? Can you identify the top ten fears of patients suffering from the conditions treated by your market leading product?

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
