L’Institut National du Cancer (INCa) et l’ASIP Santé publient pour concertation publique, le "Guide d’aide à la mise en œuvre du service DCC dans un logiciel de professionnel de santé". Ce guide a pour ambition d’aider à l’implémentation des nouvelles fonctionnalités DCC dans les LPS. Sans être une spécification fonctionnelle et technique, il identifie les développements à réaliser pour rendre les logiciels interopérables.
Modern healthcare is at a tipping point. The use of technology in our health sector, backed up by incentives to implement digital solutions, is increasing rapidly—driven not only by a need to
improve efficiency and outcomes—but also to reduce costs. Pressure is mounting on physicians and medical facilities to join the digital revolution. Just like in other industries, this new breed of healthcare provider and IT expert are working with cloud storage capabilities, wireless functionalities, and mobile phone technologies. Patients and doctors are also embracing wearable tech, remote patient/doctor interaction, even mobile treatment and the prescribing of medication.
At the same time, they’re trying to determine how to best connect, collect, and care for all of this data and relying on their IT teams and/or managed service providers (or both) to deliver the solutions they need.. As you might imagine, this is very private, extremely personal, very sensitive data being digitally collected and kept. Arguably, security and compliance have to be one of the top priorities in digital health. Personally, I think these advances in medical tech are incredible, but what becomes clear, as with any other industry, is that all of these advancements, along with the astounding amount of patient and potential medical research data collected, is meaningless if it can’t be adequately protected.
Many research scientists are not keeping up with the latest developments in mobile technology, according to a recent in-depth review of the medical literature. The review found that investigators who design and implement clinical trials have been slow to adopt mobile devices and the Internet–digital tools that have the potential to improve the research process.Traditionally, trial recruitment has relied on newspaper and radio advertisements, follow-up assessments have been conducted through mail and phone calls, and data has been collected using pencil and paper. As Carmen Rosa from the National Institutes of Health and her colleagues explain in the review, there is so much more that can be done if researchers would take advantage of the same digital resources that patients and commercial enterprises have been using for many years.
C’est une annonce qui commence à faire parler d’elle. Et c’est le but. Devant l'absence de résultats avec des sites spécialisés, le pharmacien de la commune de Fréhel a décidé de chercher un médecin généraliste… sur Le Bon Coin.

Thanks to expanding health insurance coverage, the number of virtual video consultations between primary health care providers and their patients will double in five years in the U.S., fueling the nation's telehealth boom, according to a new analysis. A new report from information and analytics firm IHS says video consultations will jump [...]
I have had patients try to snapchat their laceration repairs. They have utilized FaceTime for discharge instructions with loved ones. I recently had a patient try to put their phone in selfie mode so they could see how their lumbar puncture was going in their back (my nurse quickly prompted them to get back into position and removed their phone).
Smartphones have changed everything.
By now many physicians know of the Bethesda, Maryland anesthesiologist who wassuccessfully sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars by a patient who “accidentally” recorded conversations she was having while he was sedated.
My social media feeds were in overdrive when the final judgement was announced. Even though every physician I know felt the Anesthesiologist’s behavior was not appropriate, most were shocked at the massive amount of the judgement — $500,000. Most also felt it wasn’t appropriate for the patient to be recording the physician team without their knowledge. What if the team started talking about their next patient at the end of the case, and this patient was privy to all that information?
The tragic death of 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown this week, along with the memory of the drug-related death of her mother and acclaimed performer Whitney Houston, is a painful reminder of the severity of drug addiction and its potential to cross generations. Though the process of overcoming addiction is a personal one, this generation and those ahead may have some new, innovative options to help with recovery — due to technology and the mobile app phenomenon.
Entrepreneurs are giving the healthcare industry a much-needed injection of innovation. Enthusiasm for new ideas and solutions in healthcare is clear from the 200 percent growth in funding for digital health companies between 2010 and 2014.Digital health companies received a record-breaking $4.1 billion in funding in 2014, and more than $600 million in the first quarter of 2015. Many innovators have dramatically changed the healthcare landscape with solutions that are making patient care less expensive and more accessible, integrated and engaging. The potential for improved care is exciting, yet the plethora of healthcare ideas going to market comes with risks.
The world looks different when you’re eighteen and when you’re thirty – in some cases because your perspective has evolved, other times because the world has changed. Men and women drawn to careers in medicine while in high school or college are finding that when they emerge on the other side, things aren’t quite what they expected.
Typically, this is portrayed as the (well-worn) “Narrative of Disillusionment” – i.e. idealistic youth drawn to help people discover the practice of medicine is more rushed/bureaucratic/corporate/burdensome than they were expecting, and now are searching for new opportunities. While there’s a measure of truth to this arc, I’m not sure how different it is from any other career choice, which tend to be attractive in the abstract (A prosecutor! A screenwriter! A journalist!), perhaps less so when you’re actually doing it.
There’s some hope that will is coming through precision medicine, and what’s clear is part of the foundation – patient access to data. I watched the C
While most other industries have enjoyed a decades-long marriage with the Internet, in health care, we’re still in the “getting to know you” phase, working to establish a level of trust. Understandably, there are major concerns in our industry surrounding data integrity, both in and outside of the firewall.Even as health care and the Internet continue their awkward slow dance (Jonathan Bush of Athenahealth likes to poke fun, with respect to health care, “that Internet thing is going to be big!”), the Internet of Things is already upon us. And while almost all (physicians are on the fence about the worth of some of the data and their ability to be present with it) appreciate the IoT’s tremendous promise in health care toward enabling a digital health revolution and the future of care delivery, as an industry, we must get the security piece right.

There are some schools including medical schools that ban gadgets especially inside a classroom. In these cases, gadgets are believed to be a distraction as there is the fear that students might be texting, surfing the net, or opening some entertaining apps instead of listening to a lecture, performing an experiment, accomplishing an exercise or studying. Gadgets might also lead to class disruption.
