The Health Benefits of Wearable Technology #digitalhealth

The Health Benefits of Wearable Technology #digitalhealth | Nutrition & Fitness | Scoop.it

What do we think of when we hear the words ‘wearable technology’? Google Glass and fitness trackers such as Nike+ Fuelband will probably spring to mind. But as this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas will reveal, a diverse and dizzying array of wearable devices that record and monitor every aspect of our health (and our dogs) are now on offer. Will wearable tech be relegated to the domain of gadget enthusiasts or could these budding fashion statements soon become part of our day-to-day lives?

 

Predictions from analysts suggest that this year 1.5 million pieces of wearable tech will be sold around the world. The two prime pieces of body real estate soon to be adorned with all manner of health tracking functions are the head and wrist. CES has even dedicated an entire exhibit called ‘WristRevolution’ to the various offerings from Qualcomm, Sony, Pebble and a host of smaller companies looking for a stake in the smart watch market. A fair amount of wearable technology to be exhibited at CES has also been designed for other parts of the body too, such as the legs, arms and lower back. Some of us may even start wearing several pieces of technology simultaneously, each providing a unique insight into our health.

Healthcare Users Who Get Pinterest Right | HealthWorks Collective | Nutrition & Fitness | Scoop.it

It has been quite some time since I first wrote about the ways in which healthcare can leverage Pinterest, the content sharing service that allows members to "pin" images and videos to a virtual pin board. Since then I have seen some note-worthy examples of healthcare pinners who have used the site to build community, to raise awareness and enhance the understanding of a specific health condition. In this article, I will showcase three users who represent different sectors of healthcare and who are using Pinterest to good effect.

Doctors are using pinterest to pin information about prevention, symptoms, treatment, etc. for things like cancer, diseases, and illnesses.  This is helping the community to become more aware of how to prevent/care for themselves.

Keep track of yourself

Keep track of yourself | Nutrition & Fitness | Scoop.it

From the article Keep track of yourself at http://healthcarediy.com/health-and-technology/keep-track-of-yourself/

 

Most Americans track some aspect of their health, such as weight, blood pressure, food eating (calories, nutrition), steps and exercise. While most people who self-track still do so in their heads, more of us are doing so via digital means, through mobile phone apps and electronic gadgets. These are not your Grandpa’s Pedometers, but a new digital device that’s wireless and keeps track of your activity along with sending that data, through the internet cloud, to a database which you can access through your mobile app or your computer.

Self-health tracking is growing

Self-tracking for health via electronic means is growing fast: over one-third of U.S. consumers planned to buy a new fitness technology in 2013 – especially women. We buy these at mass merchants (like Target and Walmart), sporting goods retailers, online on Amazon and at electronics stores like Best Buy, which has had a long-time interest in digital health devices. The store’s Best Buy Mobile blog often features posts about digital health topics; here’s one on the Fitbit Ultra device.

Here’s a snapshot of Americans’ use of fitness technologies:

 

One-half of U.S. consumers online used a fitness technology in 2012Most people intending to buy a new piece of fitness technology in 2013 believed they were in excellent or good health, together 90% of people planning to buy devices4 in 5 people using fitness technologies are highly satisfied with these devices, leading people to consider acquiring more such devices.The most important product features for fitness tech’s are functionality (88%), quality (87%), ease of use (87%), durability (87%), and price (86%)

Using Health Information Technology to Engage Patients in their Care

Using Health Information Technology to Engage Patients in their Care | Nutrition & Fitness | Scoop.it

Patient engagement, defined as the process of placing patients at the center and in control of their own healthcare, is becoming a chief healthcare priority


Concurrently, a number of national information infrastructure initiatives are targeting increased patient engagement and the design of health information systems that improve the availability of health information and integrate it in meaningful ways for patients.  So far, these technology goals have been advanced primarily through the design of personal health records (PHRs), patient portals, electronic health records (EHRs), and health information exchanges (HIEs).  However, we remain far from achieving the goal of truly engaging patients in their care.


Generation and exchange of health data with patients is a requirement for Stage 3 EHR meaningful use incentives. Patients are entitled to an electronically generated copy of the record of their encounters with providers. 

 

Sharing provider-generated data with patients is expected to promote patient engagement and accountability, but our own experiences suggest that the data that are being shared are currently a mixed blessing.  For example, one encounter report took the form of a 6-page document in which the vast majority of information was copied and pasted from previous encounters and in which there were several factual errors. The errors will be discussed with the provider during the next visit.

 

Certainly the report got our attention; whether empowerment will result remains an open question.  On another occasion, although the visit itself had included making decisions about future treatment, the plan was not mentioned in the document, leaving the patient to rely on her own memory and notes.

 The National eHealth Collaborative Technical Expert Panel recommends fully integrating patient-generated data (e.g., home monitoring of daily weights, blood glucose, or blood pressure readings) into the clinical workflow of healthcare providers

Although patients want this type of involvement, we have only begun to address their wishes and concerns.  In the next sections, we summarize the current status of several potential building blocks to achieving patient engagement goals and emphasize the role of the nurse informaticist as fundamental to the process.

How the Media Covers Digital Health Topics

How the Media Covers Digital Health Topics | Nutrition & Fitness | Scoop.it

The digital health revolution is empowering people to better track, manage, and improve their health.


And the tools are there – smartphones, wireless devices, desktop apps, patient portals, and many more – all able to monitor, analyze, and report health data on an ongoing basis.

 

But where do people go to discover what tools and technologies are available to help them manage their health?

 

Well the Internet is a leading source of information. Pew Research indicates that 85% of U.S. adults use the Internet, and 72% of those get their health information online. But do people look for information about digital health on traditional news media outlets like CNN, Foxnews or NBC news?

 

And if they do, what kind of information do they find once they get there? In fact while we’re on the subject, how much of the digital health conversation do traditional media outlets cover anyway? Is it helpful and productive or is it biased?

Online an important channel in health care choices | Nutrition & Fitness | Scoop.it

According to Pew Internet, 60% of e-patients say the information found online affected a decision about how to treat an illness or condition, 56% say it changed their overall approach to maintaining their health or the health of someone they help take care of and 53% say it lead them to ask a doctor new questions, or to get a second opinion from another doctor.  In other words the Internet is important for patient health care choices.

 

We have gone from an era of too little information to information overload.  Type any health condition into Google and you’re likely to see a lot of potential sources of health information.

 

The bad news, according to Pew, is that 50% of people who search for health information say the Internet was no help.

High-tech products to improve your health

High-tech products to improve your health | Nutrition & Fitness | Scoop.it

People use wireless technology to communicate, game and entertain. USC's Center for Body Computing asks why not use that same tech to get fit or manage a health condition? At the center's annual conference, innovators presented ways in which health technology merges with social media, entertainment, sports and fitness.

 

The Center for Body Computing works with startups and other partners to develop wireless health products. Body computing could mean using your computer to track calories burned, posting your heart rate on Instagram or browsing YouTube for diabetic-friendly recipes.

 

In sports, it could mean monitoring young athletes for head injuries or tracking the intensity of pro play. Whatever the project, body computing makes health-tech digital and accessible. "We can even make it fun," said Dr. Leslie Saxon, a cardiologist and the center's executive director.

 

It's all part of a "veritable shakeup" bringing health technology out of the clinic and into the home, Eric Topol, a cardiologist at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla and author of "The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Healthcare," said in an interview.
