PLOS Medicine: Scaling Up mHealth: Where Is the Evidence?

PLOS Medicine: Scaling Up mHealth: Where Is the Evidence? | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Despite hundreds of mHealth pilot studies, there has been insufficient programmatic evidence to inform implementation and scale-up of mHealth.We discuss what constitutes appropriate research evidence to inform scale up.Potential innovative research designs such as multi-factorial strategies, randomized controlled trials, and data farming may provide this evidence base.We make a number of recommendations about evidence, interoperability, and the role of governments, private enterprise, and researchers in relation to the scale up of mHealth.

Why Even Radiologists Can Miss A Gorilla Hiding In Plain Sight

Why Even Radiologists Can Miss A Gorilla Hiding In Plain Sight | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

This story begins with a group of people who are expert at looking: the professional searchers known as radiologists. "If you watch radiologists do what they do, [you're] absolutely convinced that they are like superhuman," says Trafton Drew, an attention researcher at Harvard Medical School.

 

About three years ago, Drew started visiting the dark, cavelike "reading rooms" where radiologists do their work. For hours he would stand watching them, in awe that they could so easily see in the images before them things that to Drew were simply invisible.

 

"These tiny little nodules that I can't even see when people point to them — they're just in a different world when it comes to finding this very, very hard-to-find thing," Drew says. In the Invisible Gorilla study, subjects have to count how many times the people in white shirts pass the basketball. By focusing their attention on the ball, they tend to not notice when a guy in a gorilla suit shows up.

 

But radiologists still sometimes fail to see important things, and Drew wanted to understand more. Because of his line of work, he was naturally familiar with one of the most famous studies in the field of attention research, the Invisible Gorilla study.

 

In that groundbreaking study, research subjects are shown a video of two teams of kids — one team wears white; the other wears black — passing two basketballs back and forth between players as they dodge and weave around each other. Before it begins, viewers are told their responsibility is to do one thing and one thing only: count how many times the players wearing white pass the ball to each other.

 

This task isn't easy. Because the players are constantly moving around, viewers really have to concentrate to count the throws. Then, about a half-minute into the video, a large man in a gorilla suit walks on screen, directly to the middle of the circle of kids. He stops momentarily in the center of the circle, looks straight ahead, beats his chest, and then casually strolls off the screen.

 

The kids keep playing, and then the video ends and a series of questions appear, including: "Did you see the gorilla?" "Sounds ridiculous, right?" says Drew. "There's a gorilla on the screen — of course you're going to see it! But 50 percent of people miss the gorilla."

 

This is because when you ask someone to perform a challenging task, without realizing it, their attention narrows and blocks out other things. So, often, they literally can't see even a huge, hairy gorilla that appears directly in front of them.

 

That effect is called "inattentional blindness" — which brings us back to the expert lookers, the radiologists. Drew wondered if somehow being so well-trained in searching would make them immune to missing large, hairy gorillas. "You might expect that because they're experts, they would notice if something unusual was there," he says.

 

He took a picture of a man in a gorilla suit shaking his fist, and he superimposed that image on a series of slides that radiologists typically look at when they're searching for cancer. He then asked a bunch of radiologists to review the slides of lungs for cancerous nodules. He wanted to see if they would notice a gorilla the size of a matchbook glaring angrily at them from inside the slide.

 

But they didn't: 83 percent of the radiologists missed it, Drew says.

This wasn't because the eyes of the radiologists didn't happen to fall on the large, angry gorilla. Instead, the problem was in the way their brains had framed what they were doing. They were looking for cancer nodules, not gorillas, so "they look right at it, but because they're not looking for a gorilla, they don't see that it's a gorilla."

 

In other words, what we're thinking about — what we're focused on — filters the world around us so aggressively that it literally shapes what we see. So, Drew says, we need to think carefully about the instructions we give to professional searchers like radiologists or people looking for terrorist activity, because what we tell them to look for will in part determine what they see and don't see.

Digital Platforms Poised to Aid Brain Health in 2013

Digital Platforms Poised to Aid Brain Health in 2013 | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Compared to physical fitness, the fitness of the brain is often overlooked by both individuals and health systems, but it is easy to see positive and broad changes on how brain health is defined, monitored, maintained, and enhanced across the lifespan, and digital platforms are going to play a key role.

 

Here are 10 pre­dic­tions, many of which will likely be real­ized before the end of 2013

More than one mil­lion adults in North Amer­ica alone will take a self-administered annual brain health check-up via their iPad or Android tablet.More than one mil­lion ama­teur ath­letes will bet­ter man­age pos­si­ble con­cus­sions by tak­ing cog­ni­tive base­line tests via a mobile device.More than 150,000 teenage and adult AAA mem­bers will access web-based brain train­ing to become safer drivers.Biometrics-aided med­i­ta­tion will become the next big thing in cor­po­rate and con­sumer wellness.iPad-based cog­ni­tive screen­ings will inform more diag­noses of Alzheimer’s dis­ease and MCI than neuroimaging.Patients with mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis in at least 10 coun­tries will be offered online cog­ni­tive train­ing together with drug-based ther­apy to help address their condition.Insom­nia and depres­sion will be first-line treated with com­put­er­ized cog­ni­tive behav­ioral ther­apy in at least two national health services.The industry’s first brain-based bio­marker to pre­dict depres­sion treat­ment responses will be cleared by the FDA.Brain train­ing firm Lumos Labs and/or biometrics-based devel­oper Neu­roSky will file for an IPO.At least one major insurer will launch an edu­ca­tional cam­paign to help adults proac­tively take charge of their own “brain fit­ness” nav­i­gat­ing emerg­ing research and dig­i­tal brain health tools.

"Uno de los problemas más graves de los países en vías de desarrollo es la falta de acceso a servicios médicos profesionales. Para gran parte de la población, una visita al médico puede tomar un día entero, ser peligroso y costar el sueldo de un mes.  Además de calles estropeadas y precios altos, existe una escasez de profesionales sanitarios que puedan atender a toda la población."

MIT Builds An Open-Source Platform For Your Body

MIT Builds An Open-Source Platform For Your Body | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Siberian temperatures. Eleven grueling days, navigating rough terrain. Six teams, matched for talent, competing for glory at the end. The Iditarod? Nah, just the annual MIT Health and Wellness Hackathon. 

 

This isn’t your average social app-fest. The goal is to jump-start an open source platform where apps that track all different aspects of your bodily health can exchange information. It’s a Sisyphean task, since most digital health solutions today are trapped in silos, but the organizers believe they can change that by enfranchising big companies instead of trying to disrupt them.

 

To unify the segmented market for health technology takes heavy lifting on the engineering side, since much of the progress made by private companies hasn’t been shared back to the community. Here, each team is required to use open source and open standard tools so that things work together seamlessly: specifically, the Lab's patient-centered CollaboRhythm platform and theIndivo X system for personalized health records.
