mHealth: Are You Ready for Sensors in Healthcare?

mHealth: Are You Ready for Sensors in Healthcare? | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

The market for wearable sensors is increasing dramatically. Devices are being designed to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems, according to Pathfinder Software. A new infographic from Pathfinder Software takes a look at the types of wearables available, how they are used, their wireless capability and other details on this technology. Thank you to Pathfinder Software for an educational Infographic. Also, thank you to the Healthcare Intelligence Network for having this Infographic on their site.

Survey: 75 percent of patients want digital health services | mobihealthnews

Survey: 75 percent of patients want digital health services | mobihealthnews | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

According to a survey of thousands of patients in Germany, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, the adoption of digital healthcare services remains low because existing services are either low quality or not meeting patients’ needs. The survey, conducted by consulting firm McKinsey, included responses from at least 1,000 patients in the three countries.

“Many healthcare executives believe that, due to the sensitive nature of medical care, patients don’t want to use digital services except in a few specific situations; decision makers often cite data that point to relatively low usage of digital healthcare services,” McKinsey analysts Stefan Biesdorf and Florian Niedermann wrote in a recent blog post. “In fact, the results of our survey reveal something quite different. The reason patients are slow to adopt digital healthcare is primarily because existing services don’t meet their needs or because they are of poor quality.” 

McKinsey found that more than 75 percent of respondents would like to use some kind of digital health service. Many are interested in “mundane” offerings, the firm wrote.

Great Survey results, aligning with what experts already thought. Results generated by Germany, Singapore and the UK, but believed to be representative of patients in these advanced markets.

Los resultados de una encuesta parecen derribar algunos mitos respecto de la "salud móvil" o m-health como "Esta tecnología solo la usan los jóvenes".

EMR Adoption Reduces Mortality Rates | Health IT Outcomes

EMR Adoption Reduces Mortality Rates | Health IT Outcomes | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

...

A recent HIMSS study reveals hospitals that have implemented EMRs can better predict and decrease mortality rates.

HIMSS Analytics and Healthgradesrecently released EMR Effectiveness: The Positive Benefit Electronic Medical Record Adoption has on Mortality Rates, a whitepaper analyzing the effects of electronic medical record (EMR) implementation on predicting and decreasing mortality rates. The study set out to specifically answer the following questions:

Is there a relationship between the level of adoption of electronic medical records and hospital performance?What aspect of that performance is related most strongly to the adoption?Are there certain clinical areas (defined by the Healthgrades mortality - based cohorts) where this relationship is stronger or weaker?What additional variables, if any are related to the adoption level?

¿Debería tener una página de FACEBOOK para MI CONSULTORIO MÉDICO? | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Muchos imprevistos suceden más frecuente de lo que desearíamos, complicándonos la vida, la de nuestra secretaria y la de nuestros pacientes; sería más fácil si pudiéramos comunicarnos en tiempo real con nuestros pacientes de una forma remota sin tantas complicaciones. ¿No sería fantástico si pudiéramos con nuestro teléfono inteligente (siempre y cuando tengamos conexión a internet móvil) enviar algo y ya? Pues, existe, y se llama Facebook.

A doctor's prescription for social media

A doctor's prescription for social media | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
As an experiment,  I immersed myself in social media for the past three months.  I started this blog, joined Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, bought a domain name, and posted on Facebook for the first time in years.  Even within this short period of time, I reaped tangible benefits: I interacted with top physicians from across the …

Monitorización de la glucosa sin sangre: muchos han intentado, ninguno ha tenido éxito. Al menos todavía.

 

No hay duda de por qué la comunidad diabetes querría deshacerse de la lanceta y la rutina diaria de tiras de prueba de un método más barato y más conveniente de monitorear los niveles de azúcar en la sangre.

 

En su laboratorio en la Universidad de Toledo, profesor de bioingeniería Brent Cameron ha pasado años estudiando maneras de utilizar la luz para medir de forma no invasiva de glucosa en sangre. Compañía de dispositivos médicos Libertad Meditech, que desarrolló un dispositivo médico oftalmológico que permitirá a los profesionales de atención oftalmológica a los pacientes de la pantalla para la diabetes durante los exámenes de rutina , algo de su licencia la tecnología de hace varios años.

 

Ahora, una startup con sede en Toledo llamada IRISense LLC está en las primeras etapas de la comercialización de de su investigación en la forma de una aplicación para smartphone que predice los niveles de glucosa en la sangre a partir de imágenes del ojo.
