How The iPad Has Revolutionized Healthcare

How The iPad Has Revolutionized Healthcare | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Just three years since its launch date Apple's iPad can be credited for changing the face of modern healthcare in many ways

 

BYOD

 

The iPad has also sparked a new BYOD trend in the healthcare arena, giving physicians and healthcare executives the ability to work efficiently on a device of their choice. Famed for its usability the iPad has also encourage many physicians to engage with online tools, making patient communication much more efficient. 

 

Mass App Uptake

 

The birth of the iPad has also led to a huge increase in the number of mHealth apps. Before, healthcare professionals and executives had limited access to a small number of software solutions, which were accessible from either a desktop or laptop computer only. Today, solutions from EHR to financing, HR to medical information can all be accessed on the move and synced with a number of different devices.

 

Healthcare In The Cloud

 

As the iPad has risen in popularity so has the popularity of cloud-based mHealth apps and software solutions. Many hospitals and healthcare institutions now store important information securely in the cloud, so it is accessible from a number of portable devices both on and off site. This level of accessibility – while it comes with its own set of security concerns - has proven to be hugely beneficial in the healthcare sector.

 

Mobile Healthcare

 

As well as sharing information, accessing healthcare records and interacting with patients, the iPad has also facilitated a number of innovative patient / doctor communication systems that have helped save time, money and resources within the sector, namely the iRobot and virtual doctors offices, that allow patients to communicate with doctors face to face whilst being in different locations. This technology has also made dramatic improvements to healthcare facilities in rural locations and developing countries.

What’s keeping your doctor off Twitter

What’s keeping your doctor off Twitter | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Patients are actively looking to engage their physicians online, but doctors aren't too keen on the idea. What's the big fuss?

 

(...) "Q: Privacy seems to be a big concern among physicians. Should doctors be friends with patients on Facebook?

 

Pho: The short answer is no. There is information on personal Facebook profiles that physicians may not necessarily want their patients to know about—pictures of their children, what they did on vacation, what they do after hours. Allowing patients access to a personal physician’s profile has the potential to blur the line between a professional doctor-patient relationship and one that brims on being too personal.

 

Instead, I advocate a “dual citizenship” method that separates a personal and professional online identity. It’s an approach that professional medical societies endorse, such as the Federation of State Medical Boards. Physicians can still maintain their personal profile on Facebook, but restrict access to it to close friends and family members.

 

Then they should have a separate Facebook Page for their practice that is open to the public. Doctors should maintain a professional demeanor on this page, and use it to connect with patients, share stories about the practice, and guide the public to reputable health information on the web. An increasing number of patients get health information on Facebook, so it’s important for physicians to have a presence there. A professional Facebook page is an ideal way to do so." (...)

Cancer Researchers Mine Big Data To Individualize Treatment

Cancer Researchers Mine Big Data To Individualize Treatment | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
CancerLinQ prototype from American Society of Clinical Oncology aggregates data from disparate EHRs to find the most effective therapy for a specific patient.

 

What ASCO is trying to do in its CancerLinQ project is create a "learning health system" that will collect and analyze cancer care data from millions of patient visits. By combining that with expert guidelines and other evidence, ASCO hopes to deliver "real-time, personalized guidance and quality feedback for physicians," according to a press release.

 

ASCO's prototype links together several open source and proprietary IT applications to do the following:

 

-- Accept cancer care data directly from any EHR system, as well as other sources such as lab data, genomic profiles and physician notes.

 

-- Provide clinical decision support to help physicians care for patients with breast cancer, based on automated versions of ASCO's breast cancer guidelines.

 

-- Enable researchers to explore the database to identify real-world trends and associations.

 

-- Provide accelerated feedback on physician performance against 10 quality measures from ASCO's Quality Oncology Practice Initiative.

Every now and then for the past several years, that thought has crossed my mind. Without context, it may seem like a strange conclusion to make about any government agency. For anyone who was there in DC on November 12, 2009 when the FDA held their first publichearing on social media marketing  - this conclusion would seem even stranger.
