The End Of Apps As We Know Them - Inside Intercom

The End Of Apps As We Know Them - Inside Intercom | Online communications | Scoop.it

The experience of our primary mobile screen being a bank of app icons that lead to independent destinations is dying. And that changes everything.

 

How we experience content via connected devices – laptops, phones, tablets, wearables – is undergoing a dramatic change. The idea of an app as an independent destination is becoming less important, and the idea of an app as a publishing tool, with related notifications that contain content and actions, is becoming more important. This will change what we design, and change our product strategy

 

.NO MORE SCREENS FULL OF APP ICONS

 

This is such a paradigm shift it requires plenty of explaining. Whilst it may not transpire exactly as I’m about to describe, there is no doubt what we have today — screens of apps — is going to dramatically change. Bear with me as I run through the context....

The Perfect Storm of Social Media – Consumerization of Healthcare

The Perfect Storm of Social Media – Consumerization of Healthcare | Online communications | Scoop.it

Remember when we thought mobile technology would never work in healthcare?  Cell phones were even forbidden in most care settings. Today, there are over 100,000 healthcare apps available; we have mobile-enabled our patient portals; and, arguably one of the most influential mobile companies in history, has a ‘direct to consumer’ (let’s say patient) strategy combining mobile apps with mobile peripherals (glucose monitors, EKGs, SpO2s, etc.).

 

Social media in healthcare faces the same hype cycle challenge. Certainly the entrance of LinkedIn (founded in 2002), Facebook (founded in 2006), and Twitter (founded in 2008) are powerful technology triggers. There are more places and platforms for everyone to share their ungoverned opinions and experiences with a mass audience than ever before. Society has evolved, sharing what was once considered private experiences has become the norm – and we cross the line into health and healthcare.

The perfect storm analogy works here as well. Aligned well are:

The mainstream comfort of using social mediaThe ‘consumerization of healthcare’Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirement to engage patients via their electronic health records

Together, patients have emerging power, armed with more information as well as more choices (and responsibility) in their health.

How can you use social media safely to engage those powerful patients?

Fundamentally, social media is simply networking, opportunities to create online communities. Frost & Sullivan conducted a web-based survey in conjunction with the Institute for Health Technology Transformation (iHT2) to understand trends in the use of social media within U.S. provider institutions. The study reported that approximately 38% of physicians have recommended that a patient participate in an online community. The report also shared that two in three doctors would participate in an online community as a professional, anonymously to understand the site and what’s being discussed, and over one-half would provide advice or resources on a community.

The two most powerful platforms to engage your patients will be Twitter and Facebook.

Even if you are not using Twitter or Facebook, your patients probably are, they can still tweet the good, the bad and ugly.  Patients tweeting a positive story or even ‘liking’ your practice on Facebook is the next generation of referrals. Smart management of social media will not only help to maintain your practice, it will help you grow. How active you want to be in social media should be based on your administrative resources, like everything in healthcare, there is no ‘one size fits all’.

5 Reasons you should use social media to engage your patients:

Social media is comfortable to a specific patient demographic – it can offer anonymity and peer to peer support.  Sounds contraindicating – but it’s true.Social media can provide valid education and resources.It offers a means for doctors to listen to patient needs and concerns (and remove the white coat syndrome)It can enhance your patient’s experienceSocial media will differentiate your practice and your brand.

What about LinkedIn?  LinkedIn is an important platform, but primarily used for professional networking, not physician to patient.

Consider the benefits of social media to your patients and your practice.  Of course, plan well, use disclaimers, never share personal health information…all HIPAA rules and guidelines apply.  But the biggest risk is not engaging in all that social media has to offer.

Why Facebook Could Become the World’s Biggest Healthcare Network

Why Facebook Could Become the World’s Biggest Healthcare Network | Online communications | Scoop.it

Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) could soon follow Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) ,Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF  ) , and Google (NASDAQ: GOOG  ) (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) into the healthcare field. According to a recent Reuters report, the company is experimenting with online support communities for patients and mulling the development of personal health and fitness apps.

This isn’t the first time Facebook has expressed its interest in the healthcare field. In 2012, the company asked users to specify their organ donor status, which caused average daily online organ donor registrations in the U.S. to soar from 616 to 13,054, according to theAmerican Journal of Transplantation. When Facebook acquired virtual reality headset maker Oculus VR for $2 billion earlier this year, CEO Mark Zuckerberg cited telehealth (virtual doctors’ appointments) as a possible use for the technology.

Although Facebook’s support groups and mobile apps are still in the early planning stages, it’s fascinating to consider how the company could redefine “social healthcare” with its 1.3 billion monthly active users.

The business of social healthcare
Facebook wouldn’t be the first company to create online social groups for patients and doctors.

Back in 2008, Google launched Google Health, an ambitious effort to connect fragmented electronic health records, or EHRs, into a single personal health record, or PHR. That effort was abandoned in 2011 after the service failed to achieve mass adoption among doctors and patients. Last November, Google launched Helpouts, an “expert marketplace” which can help connect patients to doctors via video connections.

Meanwhile, smaller companies like Doximity and Personiform are emulating Facebook andTwitter‘s (NYSE: TWTR  ) networking models to connect doctors and patients to one another. Doximity, which had nearly 300,000 members as of January 2014, allows physicians to connect to each other and share patient data in a HIPAA-compliant manner.

 

Doximity’s iOS app. Source: iTunes

Personiform’s Project Medyear connects patients and physicians by merging Twitter hashtags with Google+ circles. Patients can actively share their health problems and symptoms on the network with hashtags, which helps them connect with strangers with the same ailment. To protect their privacy, Medyear uses Google+ circles to form “CareRings”, which control exactly who sees their health information. Physicians can join also the network to connect with their patients.

WebMD (NASDAQ: WBMD  ) , which offers support groups via its online communities, lets physicians use its Medscape mobile app to send medical information to patients who use WebMD’s mobile app. Last October, the company acquired Avado, a developer of cloud-based patient relationship management tools, to enhance this system.

Considering all the activity that’s going on in this field, it makes a lot of sense for Facebook to experiment with using its sprawling social connections to link patients and physicians to each other.

The business of preventative care apps
Meanwhile, preventative care apps — like exercise, diet tracking, and calorie counting apps –are a big part of the booming mobile health (mHealth) market, which Grand View Research estimates will grow from $1.95 billion in 2012 to $49 billion by 2020.

Apple, Google, and Samsung are all getting ready to capitalize on that growth. Apple recently launched HealthKit, its unified dashboard for iOS health apps and wearables. Google will soon respond with Google Fit, a similar platform which notably lacks HealthKit’s integration with EHRs. Samsung has S Health, another similar dashboard for Samsung phones and Gear smart watches.

These platforms are all designed with the expectation that sales of smart watches will soar. Current forecasts mostly back that belief — for example, research firm ON World believes that smart-watch shipments will surge from less than 4 million in 2013 to 330 million by 2018.

With these unified healthcare platforms and devices taking over smartphones, it would be wise for Facebook to offer health-tracking features to its 1.07 billion mobile monthly mobile users, who generated 62% of the company’s advertising revenue last quarter.

The Foolish takeaway
Although the healthcare market is a lucrative one, it will also be a challenging one for Facebook to break into.

Facebook’s constant shifting privacy settings, its dependence on targeted advertising for revenue, and its controversial “emotional manipulation” experiment could all hurt Facebook’s chances at evolving into a trusted healthcare network or developer of health-tracking apps. Last year, Reason-Rupe’s survey of over 1,000 American adults revealed that 61% did “not trust Facebook at all” for protecting their personal information and privacy.

Becoming a private social network for patients and doctors is a smart next step for the social network, but we should remember that Facebook couldn’t compete against LinkedIn(NYSE:LNKD  ) for a simple reason — the former was a place for personal posts, while the latter hosted professional profiles. We could see the same problem with asking patients to share health information on Facebook — its reputation as a casual social network could prevent it from ever being taken seriously as a healthcare platform.

Google Helpouts: The Virtual Future of Healthcare

Google Helpouts: The Virtual Future of Healthcare | Online communications | Scoop.it

The healthcare industry has started to attract the focus of technology and new media companies. Newstartups are entering the industry, and even Facebook is starting to turn its efforts to healthcare. Now, Google may be connecting searchers with doctors through live video and Google search.

While researching “knee pain,” Reddit user jasonahoule saw a pop-up offering to connect him with a healthcare professional via video chat for free a free trial period. According to Engadget, Google confirmed it is “testing a Helpouts-style feature which offers video chats with doctors when you search for symptoms.”

Helpouts are Google hangouts hosted by those with verified credentials. Verified experts can charge a fee to host a hangout in which they’ll give advice to willing participants. Reddit users commenting on jasonahoule’s post speculated as to whether this new medical consultation service would be rolled into the existing Helpouts infrastructure.

“When you’re searching for basic health information — from conditions like insomnia or food poisoning — our goal is provide you with the most helpful information available. We’re trying this new feature to see if it’s useful to people,” a Google spokesperson told Gizmodo.

This isn’t the first move towards a telecommunication solution for healthcare. In May of this year, Tempe, Ariz.-based Mercy Hospital broke ground on the first “Virtual Care Center” in the U.S.

“The center will bring together the nation’s best telehealth professionals to reach more patients, develop more telemedicine services and improve how we deliver virtual care through education and innovation,” Lynn Britton, president and CEO of Mercy, said in a statement.

With the size and revenue generation capacity of the healthcare industry, it was only a matter of time before tech companies started to make inroads. As companies like Google start to put their substantial resources and background in big data services into the healthcare field, they could bring big changes to all industries involved.
