Now that depends on what they mean by "interact", are they meaning consultation with their HCP or accessing test results and repeat prescriptions.

Google Fit is the company's answer to Apple's HealthKit | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

Not to be left behind Apple’s HealthKit framework that collects and aggregates a user’s health data from various services and devices, Google is working on its own health service called Google Fit if this report from Forbes is to be believed.

 

The service will collect data from popular fitness trackers and health related apps and aggregate them into a central place, similar to Apple’s HealthKit.

Apple: Putting doctors, trainers and nutritionists in your pocket

Apple: Putting doctors, trainers and nutritionists in your pocket | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

With HealthKit Apple is attempting to unify and share the disparate data of your health and fitness apps with each other, and -- if you want -- with your medical institution as well..


Apple wants to be the one-stop shop for your health and fitness needs. It's a rather ambitious goal, but it's also a necessary one given the increasingly crowded fitness field. And, of course, it also lays the groundwork for that long-rumored iWatch.

Vigisys's curator insight, April 27, 2:28 AM

Le programme Watson est une initiative très intéressante sur le plan technique et théorique. Mais c'est aussi une approche strictement statistique. La connaissance de Watson est basée sur les publications des recherches réalisées par les humains ! Plutôt que d'annoncer que Watson sera le meilleur médecin, on ferait mieux de dire qu'il sera le meilleur assistant du médecin, comme l'interne à qui le médecin demande de faire une revue bibliographique pour un cas difficile de médecine interne. Quand à utiliser Watson pour définir des recommandations de pratique clinique, c'est possible, mais on retrouve la problématique de "l'evidence based medicine". L'approche statistique, fréquentielle, a fait faire à la médecine des progrès indéniables, mais elle ne résout pas tout, car le médecin est aussi confronté avec chaque malade à un cas particulier.

Diabetes apps are now numerous but lack key features

Diabetes apps are now numerous but lack key features | Nursing Education | 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

The nurse uses surgical app DocSpera to send the cardiologist a video of the EKG and a summary of the other tests. The cardiologist reviews the EKG while at the conference and decides your mom needs surgery, stat. The cardiologist sends a surgeon the diagnostic information, and the surgeon confirms that a carotid angioplasty must be performed within the next eight hours. This information is passed to a surgery center to identify an operating room. The info also goes to a medical device representative to ensure the correct stent is on its way.
