Cáncer: nace un e-hospital europeo para integrar el big data | Think Big

Cáncer: nace un e-hospital europeo para integrar el big data | Think Big | Personal Health Record | Scoop.it

Para muchas personas, la palabra cáncer significa un punto de inflexión en sus vidas. Un parón en su rutina diaria. Una fecha, una consulta, unas explicaciones médicas que jamás borrarán de su cabeza. Del diagnóstico incierto a la precisión del tumor maligno median sólo unas semanas, donde las visitas y las pruebas se entremezclan con emociones enfrentadas.

 

Anualmente más de 60.000 personas son diagnosticadas de un tumor maligno en alguno de los seis principales hospitales europeos. Cada persona esconde detrás de su historia clínica una vida que quedará en un standby extraño. Nada será igual después de recibir la terrible noticia. Estos seis hospitales europeos se encargan de administrar más de 300.000 tratamientos oncológicos al año y gestionar cerca de un millón de visitas ambulatorias.

 

Detrás de las cifras también hay historias. La de cada profesional sanitario que ha de enfrentarse a otro paciente más, a otra familia más, a otro diagnóstico más. La de la investigación que trata de avanzar en el tratamiento contra el cáncer, dando un poco de luz a la oscuridad de las personas afectadas por un futuro incierto. Cada pequeña historia suma, acumulando al final una enorme cantidad de información clínica. Se trata, en realidad, de la cara más personal y dura del Big Data.

Five ways the healthcare industry benefits from cloud computing - Thoughts on Cloud

Five ways the healthcare industry benefits from cloud computing - Thoughts on Cloud | Personal Health Record | Scoop.it

While many industries benefit from the cloud, it has been especially the case for the healthcare industry, resulting in improved outcomes. Let’s take a look at some of the areas that are bringing significant benefits to the industry.

Data analytics:

The exploitation of data by applying analytical methods such as statistics, predictive and quantitative models will provide better insights and achieve better outcomes. As far back as 2010, there is evidence of this: “93 percent of healthcare providers identified information explosion as the biggest factor anticipated to influence their organizations to a large extent over the next 5 years.”

Evidence shows need for consumers' access to medical records online

Evidence shows need for consumers' access to medical records online | Personal Health Record | Scoop.it

As the saying goes, it takes two to tango.  An increasing number of health care providers offer new electronic tools to patients, but are patients interested in engaging online with their health records?

At the same time, the Blue Button Initiative, the meaningful use requirements in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) all set the stage to get health information into patients’ hands to fuel greater patient engagement.

But does enough patient demand exist to justify requirements for health care providers to offer patients the capability to access their health information online?

To assess the readiness of patients to ‘accept this dance’ today and understand how to entice them out onto the floor in the future, we need to establish a baseline.  How many people are offered e-access to their data? Of those offered that access, how many actually use it and what do they want to do with it?

A new data brief, Individuals’ Access and Use of Their Online Medical Record Nationwide, begins to get to the heart of these questions. Using data collected in 2013, this brief gives us the first comprehensive look at the state of consumer access and use of online health records.

How ready are patients to ‘take a twirl’ with their data?

We found evidence that shows the critical need for consumers to have access to their online medical records so they can directly address any gaps or delays in information exchange among providers. One in three individuals reported they had to address missed hand offs among providers and delays in information being shared.

However, the data also show that as of 2013, only three in ten individuals had online access to their medical records. This is likely related to providers’ limited capabilities prior to implementation of Stage 2 Meaningful Use. We expect this percentage will grow as providers’ capabilities increase.

In an encouraging finding, the survey showed that individuals who have access to their online medical records may have more interest in using that information than is popularly thought. The threshold established for Meaningful Use Stage 2 is that at least five percent of unique individuals given access to online health records should view, download, or transmit those records at least once. In this survey, almost half of all individuals given online access viewed their record at least once.

We also see a lot of variability in what they did with that access. Nearly 3/4 used their access to monitor health, which is not that surprising. But some of the uses asked about in the survey were higher than we might have expected:

  • Nearly half of individuals who accessed their health records shared information with someone else, including with their health care provider, suggesting that their online record is potentially being used to address gaps in information exchange among providers.
  • More than a third of individuals who accessed their health records downloaded that information to a computer or mobile device.
  • About one in ten of individuals who accessed their health records online sent the information somewhere else, like an app or a personal health record, enabling them to better manage their health care needs.

Finally, we found that even at this early stage of providing individuals with access to online medical records, the public sees the value: A majority of those that accessed their online record considered the information very useful. Even among the survey respondents who did not access their medical records online, a majority viewed secure online access to those records as very or somewhat important, and this was nearly universal among those who did access their online record.

Based on these national survey findings, we now have some preliminary evidence to support the hypothesis that individuals are ready for this data dance. And as their providers learn new moves through “view, download and transmit” and other capabilities, we expect they will continue to find more willing partners among their patients.

We are planning to repeat the survey to find out how this story evolves, and to better understand how individuals’ use of health IT may help health care providers and developers along their journey to increasing patient engagement and empowerment

The Convergence of Big Data and EHR. Infographic

The Convergence of Big Data and EHR. Infographic | Personal Health Record | Scoop.it

“In the next 10 years, data science and software will do more for medicine than all of the biological sciences together,” said venture capitalist Vinod Khosla. Data science holds great promise for patient health, but patient data is only actionable in so far as it is digital. This is where Electronic Health Records (EHRs) come in. By 2019, the majority of physicians will have adopted a basic EHR system, and with good reason, too. EHRs may reduce outpatient care costs by 3 percent.

The convergence of big data and EHR infographic created by UC Berkeley School of Information explores the how the growing relationship between health data and EHR adoption is transforming healthcare.

Most of us already realize that the mobile platform is the future of how medical data will be accessed, shared and applied.

The timely introduction of smartphones and tablets, after all, goes hand-in-glove with evidence-based medicine (EBM). By making the very latest medical finds accessible through mobile solutions, clinician engagement has doubled, according to multiple studies. Nearly 85 percent of younger clinicians, in fact, are already using iPhones and iPads to access patient and professional data. Today’s technology and the myriad ways of collecting information ensure that patient and general population statistics will play an increasingly important role in providing quality care.
