Privacy a priority during health system's Apple Watch deployment

From www.fiercemobilehealthcare.com

Protecting patient data and privacy requires prime attention when deploying mHealth technology, according to Michael Ash, chief transformation officer at Nebraska Medicine. The health system is conducting a $10 million research project on the impact of remote health monitoring of chronically ill patients, and is now deploying an Apple Watch-based version of its Epic MyChart app to let patients and physicians communicate and access data from test result notices to appointment information.

In a recent interview with HealthcareInfoSecurity, Ash says that security strategies surrounding such mobile endeavors must encompass all potential risk points, from user access to data sharing.

In deploying the app, Nebraska made a series of decisions regarding security to ensure data is protected at every point, from creation to transmission to storage. No data resides on the Watch and encryption technology is used for transmitting data between the Epic system and the wearable.

said that In deploying the app, they made a series of decisions regarding security to ensure data is protected at every point, from creation to transmission to storage. No data resides on the Watch and encryption technology is used for transmitting data between the Epic system and the wearable.  -  "We turned off Siri [Apple's digital voice assistant] capability for data transmission," Ash says, noting that user authentication also is a priority to ensure data security and privacy. "No permanent patient identifiable information is stored on the smartphone and that is the same for patient and physician apps.

NHS taps mobile tools to boost physician access to patients

From www.fiercemobilehealthcare.com

The U.K.'s National Health Service is deploying Dr Now mHealth technology that offers patients video consults as well a telehealth prescription service that delivers needed medicine to patients' homes or other non-medical center locations.

Hacking Into Healing: The REAL Future of Medicine

From www.huffingtonpost.com

With these new advances in science, we have a choice to shape the new paradigm in health and medicine.
Art Jones's curator insight, July 6, 8:22 PM

There are tough questions ahead, the answers will determine if we continue to discover  what we don't know and learn about the mind, body, spirit connections and the influences they have on our health. Or will our investments and the future of healthcare be driven by big pharma. We have choices to make, which road do we follow or do we serve both? 


Personal Health In The Digital Age

From techcrunch.com

We live in the digital age. You know that already. Two out of three Americans are now smartphone owners, and more than 86 percent of the population is connected online. But while digital has permeated everything from our social lives to how we work and how we shop, it is only starting to touch how we manage health.

What Doctors Really Want from the Latest Medical Technology

From blogs.wsj.com

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, 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.
