Los famosos ayudan a concienciar sobre salud, pero se puede hacer más | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

La confesión de una enfermedad por parte de un famoso tiene gran impacto en la concienciación sobre la misma, aunque sea temporal. Sin embargo, se puede hacer más con una adecuada estrategia de comunicación en la que participen profesionales sanitarios, autoridades, pacientes y comunicadores especializados en salud.

New Non-Invasive Skin Biopsy Technology Makes Doctor Visits Easier

New Non-Invasive Skin Biopsy Technology Makes Doctor Visits Easier | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Skin biopsies can be painful, long, and expensive. Caliber I.D. has developed a skin biopsy technology that uses lasers to perform skin biopsies.

 

The VivaScope system is a high-resolution medical imaging system that allows doctors to perform skin biopsies, to test for cancerous cells in moles, for example, without cutting into a patient’s skin.

 

For a traditional skin biopsy, a dermatologist will numb the specified area, excise a piece of skin, and send it off to a pathology lab. The pathologists in the lab then freeze, section, and stain the skin sample and look at it under a microscope. Results could take up to a week. VivaScope eliminates most of this procedure, allowing real time diagnoses.

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.

mHealth: building a mobile companion app for cancer sufferers

mHealth: building a mobile companion app for cancer sufferers | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

The quick pace of mobile technology, coupled with a broad worldwide penetration of smartphones, has effectively transformed Healthcare into a new entity called mHealth.  

 

In 2012, the number of medical application users will reach 247 million, which is more than double the 124 million users who downloaded medical applications in 2011.

 

Global revenue from mHealth apps grew from 140 million in 2010 to 1.3 billion in 2012, and continues to progress on an upward curve.

Why is mHealth so commercially successful, and what factors contribute to this economic success story?

 

Medication schedule management

Cancer treatment is a very complex and painful process demanding the highest level of accuracy from both physician and patient. And it is also an area where mobile technology can assist with treatment. Regular smartphones can be converted into effective medication schedule managers. This involves a straightforward process; simply select your cancer type and treatment plan, point to a start date, and make sure your device is in close proximity in order to see/hear reminders and notifications. Either patient or caregiver may add additional days and times for further dosage if required.

 

Tracking symptoms history


The tracking symptoms log included in the application is very important with regard to cancer treatment. Symptoms such as nausea, pain, fever, fatigue, lack of appetite, and any others that a user may wish to track, can be logged and showed to a doctor during a meeting or sent via e-mail.

 

Tracking blood count

 

Some cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, may damage not only cancerous cells but also normal body cells including blood cells.

 

Reach the doctor easier

The modules described above not only enable a user to cope with cancer treatment, but also to prepare valuable information for an appointment with a doctor. To make appointments more effective and informative, users can type or voice record their questions beforehand. During the meeting, users have the option to type or voice record a doctor’s answers as well. When the FAQ database is available, users can browse it through a mobile device to see available answers and adjust their questions appropriately.

Receive up-to-date information

 

Cancer is one of the most researched medical conditions in the world, and those who have contracted it often desire to be kept informed about the most up-to-date information and cure recommendations.

 

Stay connected with community

It’s easier to cope with a problem when you know that you are not alone. Access to a community, the ability to ask questions, the opportunity to read success stories, and to be able to participate in a community information exchange is extremely important in a cancer sufferer’s battle to stay positive. Thus, this module is a very valuable addition to a companion app for people struggling with any serious long-term disease.

Evidence of Effectiveness of Health Care Professionals Using Handheld Computers

Evidence of Effectiveness of Health Care Professionals Using Handheld Computers | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Handheld computers and mobile devices provide instant access to vast amounts and types of useful information for health care professionals. Their reduced size and increased processing speed has led to rapid adoption in health care. Thus, it is important to identify whether handheld computers are actually effective in clinical practice.

 

A scoping review of systematic reviews was designed to provide a quick overview of the documented evidence of effectiveness for health care professionals using handheld computers in their clinical work.

 

This scoping review summarizes the secondary evidence for effectiveness of handheld computers and mhealth. It provides a snapshot of effective use by health care professionals across four key functions. We identified evidence to suggest that handheld computers provide easy and timely access to information and enable accurate and complete documentation. Further, they can give health care professionals instant access to evidence-based decision support and patient management systems to improve clinical decision making. Finally, there is evidence that handheld computers allow health professionals to be more efficient in their work practices. It is anticipated that this evidence will guide clinicians and managers in implementing handheld computers in clinical practice and in designing future research.
