SEC y SEMG crean una biblioteca de aplicaciones móviles para la práctica clínica cardiovascular - correo farmacéutico

SEC y SEMG crean una biblioteca de aplicaciones móviles para la práctica clínica cardiovascular - correo farmacéutico | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Ayudar a los médicos en la resolución de problemas habituales de su día a día y contribuir con ello a la excelencia en la asistencia sanitaria. Estos son los objetivos de la Appteca, una biblioteca de aplicaciones móviles de apoyo para el abordaje integral del paciente cardiovascular: desde cálculo de su riesgo, hasta su diagnóstico, tratamiento y seguimiento. Un proyecto que se inscribe en la nueva era de la tecnología aplicada a la práctica clínica, tanto en la asistencia sanitaria directa como a la docencia especializada.

 

Desarrollado por la Sociedad Española de Cardiología (SEC) y la Sociedad Española de Médicos Generales y de Familia (SEMG), con el patrocinio de Menarini, la Appteca nace "con la idea de dar respuesta a la demanda constatada de una herramienta útil y práctica tanto en la consulta como en el domicilio, sencilla y de fácil manejo, para dar soluciones concretas al paciente en un determinado momento", ha explicado Benjamín Abarca Buján, expresidente de la SEMG y coordinador de la iniciativa, "y de ella destaca además su disponibilidad: cualquiera desde su tableta o su teléfono móvil puede acceder a estas herramientas y resolver esas necesidades del paciente en el nivel asistencial adecuado", ha coincidido José Ramón González Juanatey, ex presidente de la SEC, para quien "cada vez más, los dispositivos móviles van a ser cada vez más la realidad de la asistencia sanitaria promoviendo la interconexión: entre profesionales, de los profesionales y el Sistema Nacional de Salud y de los profesionales con los pacientes y ciudadanos".

Mobile tech reshaping the health sector

Mobile tech reshaping the health sector | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Your smartphone is not only your best friend, it's also become your personal trainer, coach, medical lab and maybe even your doctor.


"Digital health" has become a key focus for the technology industry, from modest startups' focus on apps to the biggest companies in the sector seeking to find ways to address key issues of health and wellness.


Apps that measure heart rate, blood pressure, glucose and other bodily functions are multiplying, while Google, Apple and Samsung have launched platforms that make it easier to integrate medical and health services.


"We've gotten to a point where with sensors either in the phone or wearables gather information that we couldn't do in the past without going to a medical center," says Gerry Purdy, analyst at Compass Intelligence.


"You can do the heart rate, mobile EKGs (electrocardiograms). Costs are coming down, and these sensors are becoming more socially acceptable."


The consultancy Rock Health estimates 143 digital health companies raised $2.3 billion in the first six months of 2014, already topping last year's amount.


Recent studies suggest that people who use connected devices to monitor health and fitness often do a better job of managing and preventing health problems.


A study led by the Center for Connected Health found that people who use mobile devices did a better job of lowering dangerous blood pressure and blood sugar levels.


A separate study published in the July 2014 issue of Health Affairs found that data collected by devices is not only useful for patients but can help doctors find better treatments.


"When linked to the rest of the available electronic data, patient-generated health data completes the big data picture of real people's needs, life beyond the health care system," said Amy Abernethy, a Duke University professor of medicine lead author of the study.


Some firms have even more ambitious plans for health technology.


Google, for example, is developing a connecting contract lens which can help monitor diabetics and has set up a new company called Calico to focus on health and well-being, hinting at cooperation with rivals such as Apple. And IBM is using its Watson supercomputer for medical purposes including finding the right cancer treatment.

Diabetes patients who use digital tools self-report better health - Survey

Diabetes patients who use digital tools self-report better health - Survey | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

New survey data from digital health agency Klick Health shows that diabetes patients who use digital tools to manage their health also feel healthier.


Klick Health employed Survey Sampling International (SSI) to poll 2,000 American adults with diabetes either online or via the telephone.


Based on responses about how they use technology to manage their health, they segmented the group into three categories: those who manage their health daily or weekly with integrated digital technologies (integrators), those who go online to seek health information on a monthly basis (seekers), and those who don’t use the internet to manage their health at all (traditionalists).


The integrators group, the true digital health users, made up just 18 percent of the sample, but 13 percent of integrators reported being in excellent health. Seekers made up 47 percent of the sample and 4 percent of seekers said they were in excellent health. Finally, the remaining 35 percent were traditionalists, and only 2 percent of that group reported being in excellent health. 


Because it’s a survey based on self-reported health status, the data doesn’t prove that connected patients are actually healthier than non-connected patients. But it does provide evidence that either they’re healthier or they believe they’re healthier, which is significant in and of itself.

Nineteen percent of patients reported using mobile technology for a health-related activity. Of these, most wanted more data-driven interactions with their doctors. Two-thirds said they would like an app to remind them to take their medication, 75 percent wanted apps to connect them with their doctors, and 78 percent were open to sharing personally-collected health data with their doctors.


Overall, 80 percent of the mobile connected group were interested in having an app recommended to them by their doctor.

Could health apps save your life? That depends on the FDA

Could health apps save your life? That depends on the FDA | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates everything from heart monitors to horse vaccines, will soon have its hands full with consumer health apps and devices.


The vast majority of the health apps you’ll find in Apple’s or Google’s app stores are harmless, like step counters and heart beat monitors. They’re non-clinical, non-actionable, and informational or motivational in nature.


But the next wave of biometric devices and apps might go further, measuring things like real-time blood pressure, blood glucose, and oxygen levels.

More clinical apps

The FDA is charged with keeping watch on the safety and efficacy of consumer health products. Lately, that includes more clinical apps as well as devices you might buy at the drugstore, like a home glucose testing kit.


“It’s these apps that the FDA says it will regulate,” David Bates of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Physicians Organization told VentureBeat in June. These apps will have to go through the full 510(k) process,” he said.


Dr. Bates chaired a group to advise the FDA on how to review health apps for approval, and on how the FDA should advise developers.

“It was intended to help them think through the risk factors involved with these products and then give guidance on how to stay within the guidelines,” he said.


“The device makers were asking from some guidance from The FDA on what types of things would be accepted and what wouldn’t,” Bates said.

Bates believes the FDA wants to use a light regulatory touch when looking at new medical devices. “The FDA definitely wants innovation to continue in clinical devices,” he said. “In general the FDA knows that the vast majority of apps are just informational.”


The FDA’s final guidance focuses on a small subset of mobile apps that present a greater risk to patients if they do not work as intended.


Health apps go mainstream

The big software companies (Apple, Google, and Samsung) have brought attention to, and lent credibility to, apps and devices that do more than count steps. These companies are building large cloud platforms designed to collect health data from all sorts of health apps and devices.

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.
