New Rules For Our Health’s Digital Future

New Rules For Our Health’s Digital Future | Patient involvement | Scoop.it

Technology promises to transform healthcare. It’s redefining how we interact with, and act on, our health data, and reshaping how care is delivered and coordinated. But uptake so far has been limited, particularly among the elderly, those with chronic conditions and others who could benefit most from a better, smarter healthcare system.

To understand why, we need to look at federal reimbursement policies and their far-reaching, albeit often overlooked, influence on tech innovation.

Transformation is the name of the game in Health Care.  Digitall tools are only one tool in the littany of catalytic innovation taking place in health care systems.  It will serve as a uniffying means for health reform, better quality of outcomes and more.  Medicare is already adjusting it's reimbursement rules for payments for telemedicine.

DNA Nanotechnology the Future of Modern Medicine?

DNA Nanotechnology the Future of Modern Medicine? | Patient involvement | Scoop.it

One of the most significant achievements in the field of biomedical engineering is the creation of DNA nanobots. These molecular robots made of DNA are designed to deliver medicines to specific cells that require healing and to target harmful cells, killing them without harming the healthy ones.

 

Unlike commonly used drugs and supplements, nanobots have a measure of intelligence and can conveniently move through the body in smart ways.

 

How are these nanobots produced? Scientists use DNA, breaking up the components and rearranging them into shapes such as barrels to carry medicine. DNA naturally has a tendency to react in certain ways to outside stimuli, and its components assemble according to natural attraction and repulsion. These reactions are manipulated to make the nanobots and to program them.

 

Nanobots are free-floating structures that move through the bloodstream and remain neutral until they encounter a particular site that requires assistance. With the help of molecular cues programmed into them, they can identify a precise location and perform the necessary actions.

 

Treatment with nanobots could prove to be especially effective against cancer. With chemotherapy treatment, healthy cells are killed along with the cancerous cells. Nanobots can detect the cancerous cells, however, and only release medicine upon encountering them.

This article is about the eventual use of nanotechnology in humans to work as little nurses, called nanobots, to deliver medicine directly to sick or cancerous cells with out harming the healthy cells. I am really fascinated by nanotechnology, it is crazy ad unknown to me, i would really like to learn more about it. This article is from The Epoch Times, which in their "about us" claims "unwavering commitment to objective reporting" .

What Doctors Really Want from the Latest Medical Technology

What Doctors Really Want from the Latest Medical Technology | Patient involvement | Scoop.it

GURPREET DHALIWAL: Technology has much to offer doctors, but it is not the health-care technology agenda you hear about in the news. Big data, the electronic medical record, and the connected patient are frequently hyped as remedies to medicine’s ills. But improving and restoring health is a messy business that requires investment in human capital more than physical capital.

Here’s a modest technology agenda from the perspective of the front-line clinician who hopes to master their craft and continually improve the care they provide to their patients

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 6, 2015 9:03 PM

There are legitimate reasons why MD's are not able to utilize medical records technology as many would like, and this is despite the PR machine of medical documentation companies who say they are providing the capability for doctors to actually use it


And so a modest technology agenda, in the Wall Street Journal no less, from the perspective of a front-line clinician who hopes to master their craft and continually improve the care they provide to their patients.


Big data. Correlations that massive data sets churn out seldom change practice. Those associations are no different than any preliminary research finding: not ready for prime time until they are confirmed, scrutinized and distilled for daily practice. Clinicians need constant exposure to the findings of high-quality studies and synopses that already meet those criteria. Twitter, for example, is a great way to do that. Spare me your big data, send me your good data.

Electronic medical record. The medical record has devolved into a forensic document and billing tool with a subordinate role as a communication tool, but it never has become a learning tool. Doctors only improve with feedback, but workloads make it impossible to quickly answer questions like, “Is that patient I saw last week OK?” or “What did that test result show?” Some electronic medical records allow doctors to create a list of patients to track or set up scheduled reminder emails. But it should be easier and better, such as, “Siri, send me a secure email when Ms. Jain sees her rheumatologist. I want the note and labs from that day.”

The connected patient. I want updates from my patients, but the outdated emphasis on face-to-face visits often makes this impossible. Text, email and videoconferencing should be commonplace for follow-up, even though regulations and reimbursements pose formidable barriers. Many doctors already communicate electronically because it is the right thing to do—and because we believe it is more important to be connected to your health-care provider than it is to be connected to your Fitbit.
