Patients, families find comfort and help by sharing stories via social media | Patient Advocacy and End of Life Health | Scoop.it

Panelists at Mayo-hosted Health Care Social Media Summit discuss how social media has helped them, their families and their peers.

 

It was hard to miss one recurring theme at the Health Care Social Media Summit, which began Wednesday, Oct. 23, in Rochester and wraps up today: The patient experience is at the center of health care social media efforts. And if it isn't, it should be.

Talk to Docs Quickly Answers Your Common Health Questions

Talk to Docs Quickly Answers Your Common Health Questions | Patient Advocacy and End of Life Health | Scoop.it

Android and iOS: While you generally don't want to turn to the internet for help fixing your body, if you can connect with an actual doctor you can get usable advice. Talk to Docs offer just that, allowing you to ask a question aloud and receive an answer just moments later.

 

Talk to Docs provides a very simple interface at the start. You can type your question, but it seeks to simplify the process by listening to you speak and then turning that question into text on your behalf. Once it detects the question you've asked, you get a series of related responses from actual doctors. In many cases, those responses were vetted by other doctors so you have multiple opinions. While a brief answer can't replace actual medical treatment, when you want to try and figure out what might be wrong with you in a hurry it's nice to get a quick answer.P

Une intéressante présentation (en anglais) qui aborde les principaux concepts qui seront fondateurs de l'e-santé à venir. Une belle inspiration pour le développement des futurs réseaux de santé numériques.
