Mental Elf app offers pocket digest of latest medical research | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

A new smartphone app launched by Minervation, a UK-based design, technology and social media consultancy specialising in evidence-based healthcare information, offers a daily digest of the latest medical research on mental health.

 

The Mental Elf app for iPhones builds on the Mental Elf website (www.thementalelf.net) launched by Minervation last year and the umbrella National Elf Service (www.nationalelfservice.net), a cluster of sites for healthcare professionals that round up research, policy and guidance in areas such as mental health, dentistry, diabetes, learning disabilities and musculoskeletal conditions.

140 Health Care Uses for Twitter | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

Twitter’s simplicity of functional design, speed of delivery and ability to connect two or more people around the world provides a powerful means of communication, idea-sharing and collaboration.

Here's a list of suggestion still worthwhile from Phil Baumann -

When you're new to social media and health it will help you - if you're an expert already it sets you to reflect: where have we gone actually since Jan 2009?

El uso de las redes sociales en medicina tiene límites deontológicos - DiarioMedico.com | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

Las redes sociales, el correo electrónico y los mensajes de móviles son utilizados por los facultativos y la Administración sanitaria para comunicarse con sus pacientes. Estos nuevos canales han llegado para quedarse y hasta que se apruebe una normativa específica para regular los derechos y obligaciones que profesionales y pacientes deben observar en su uso, hay que buscar entre la normativa vigente las leyes que marquen los límites de estas prácticas.

 

Ésta fue una de las conclusiones extraídas del taller sobre Aspectos éticos en las redes sociales en manos de los profesionales de la Medicina, celebrado dentro del VII curso de verano sobre Metodología de la Enseñanza e Investigación en Bioética, del Colegio de Médicos de Zaragoza, en el que participaron Salvador Casado, médico de familia pionero en el uso de internet en su consulta, Mónica Lalanda, médico de urgencias de Segovia, experta en Bioética y reconocida twittera y Carlos Gil, periodista y abogado experto en Derecho Sanitario.

 

Confidencialidad
Prudencia fue la recomendación que prescribió Casado a los profesionales que se inicien en el uso de las redes sociales como un instrumento de apoyo en la consulta con sus pacientes. El facultativo recordó que la información que se maneja en el ámbito sanitario es sensible y por ello hay que observar el principios de confidencialidad. Tanto Casado como Lalanda destacaron la potencialidad de las redes sociales para compartir conocimientos médicos.

 

Desde el punto ético y legal, Gil recordó que esta nueva relación médico-paciente debe respetar los principios deontológicos de la profesión.

GAMIFICACIÓN Y PRIVACIDAD EN EL USO DE REDES SOCIALES EN SALUD. | Salumedia | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

Según Wikipedia, Gamificación es la utilización de técnicas del diseño y mecánicas de videojuegos para solucionar problemas e envolver en su solución audiencias. La gamificación es aplicada en programas y procesos que no tienen nada que ver con videojuegos para de esta forma hacer fácil su adaptación a los mismos aprovechándose de los factores psicológicos que hace que los individuos sean fácilmente motivados por técnicas de juegos.

El objetivo general es influir y motivar a los usuarios para conseguir que logren adquirir hábitos y alcanzar objetivos. Para ello, se incentiva al jugador a participar, compartir e interactuar en alguna actividad de forma individual o con la comunidad. Una gamificación eficaz, dinámica y con una rica experiencia puede ser utilizada para llevar a cabo una variedad de objetivos en todo tipo de ámbitos y sectores.

'Magic Carpet' could predict and detect falls

'Magic Carpet' could predict and detect falls | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

medgadget writes:

 

It might not take you on a romantic ride around the world, but this high-tech rug developed at the University of Manchester could help rehab, elderly, and other fall-prone patients. The carpet consists of special plastic optical fibers and sensors throughout that map 2D images of a patient’s footprints by using light propagating under the surface, somewhat similar to tomographic techniques used by medical scanners. These images can be analyzed and used to detect patterns and changes in a patient’s walking habits and predict whether he or she is at an increased risk of falling. Naturally, the carpet can detect if a fall has actually occurred as well.

 

The smart carpet has other applications beyond use for fall-prone patients. Physical therapists can use the carpet to map changes and improvements in a person’s gait. Moreover, the imaging technology can be easily modified to gather other information about a patient’s condition (weight changes, for instance, might indicate a pending CHF exacerbation). According to team lead Dr Patricia Scully, these sensors make the carpet a very versatile device for monitoring a patient.

Health IT Promotion Goes Direct-To-Consumer

Health IT Promotion Goes Direct-To-Consumer | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it
Public and private efforts are underway to educate the public about the benefits of health IT and access to their electronic health data. However, ultimately, physicians and nurses will be the most effective sales force for consumer health IT.

 

Fragment:

 

(...) "Physicians Will Be the Best Sales Force for Health IT


It's early days for patient engagement with health IT, with most patients just beginning to be exposed to EHRs in physician offices as doctors expand their use of the systems in anticipation of Stage 2 of the meaningful use program. A key metric of meaningful use is patient engagement, with the objective of sharing information with patients to both inform people about their conditions and inspire dialogue between people and their providers.


Beyond this goal, though, is another compelling reason for physicians to engage with patients via health IT: accountable care and value-based care payment regimes. That's because bolstering patients' adherence to therapeutic regimens, like blood sugar testing, prescription drug filling and adherence, and exercise routines can help keep people healthy and out of the doctor's office and emergency department or prevent readmission to hospital -- another objective called out in the Affordable Care Act.


And it's physicians -- not advertising or social networks -- who are most trusted by consumers as touchpoints for health engagement.
Ultimately, physicians and nurses will the most effective sales force for consumer health IT."

Infographic - Patient Adherence in the US

Infographic - Patient Adherence in the US | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

Patient Adherence, or the extent to which a patient abides by their treatment regime, is a continuing issue globally and non-adherence is costing us all dear. However for all the talk about adherence programmes, better patient engagement and education, have you ever stopped to think about just how much non-adherence really costs?

 

In anticipation for 2012 Patient Summit USA, we have been giving this issue a great deal of thought, and decided it was time to illustrate just how much of a pressing issue non-adherence is becoming. As a result, our creative-types have come up with an infographic which I think you'll find puts the issues into stark perspective.

 

As you'll see, non-adherence remains a costly issue within healthcare, and if we can do anything to ensure it gets the attention, and the resources it deserves, we will.

Mapping The Next Three Decades of Health Technology

Mapping The Next Three Decades of Health Technology | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

When science fiction films depict the future, the best writers and directors are often less concerned with accurately predicting how specific technologies might reshape the world than they are with confronting the moral or philosophical quandaries of present day. It’s what makes those stories compelling--and relatable. When futurists attempt to tell us how (and when) technology leaps will occur, they’re not only speculating about what we’re capable of achieving in the coming decades but also imploring us to prepare--scientifically and psychologically--for those events.

 

Envisioning Technology, the firm behind the massive infographic explorations of the future of emerging technology and the future of education technology, is, as you might guess, run by a futurist: Michell Zappa. His most recent visualization maps the next three decades of health technology, charting how regeneration, augmentation, diagnostics, treatments, biogerontology, and telemedicine will change over time. According to ET, the stuff of science fiction--from cryogenics to all-out life extension, from robot health care to 3-D-printed synthetic organs--will be very real before too long.

Should we drop the term e-patient?

Should we drop the term e-patient? | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

Is the term e-patient outdated and even counter-productive for digital health in 2012? Just as very few people under 25 would use the description  'digital' camera, is there really any other type of patient other than a digital one in digitally advanced demographics?

With due respect to who invented this word "e-patient", it sound so technical. It should never be used when referring to a human being. We have to remember that when we deal on human lives, it is not just about science or technology. It is something which needs the heart.

Big Data in Your Blood

Big Data in Your Blood | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

Sensors of your heart, blood, and brain are coming to market. These may a boon to science and personal health. For the companies involved, they may be goldmines of intimate real-time data on millions of subjects.

 

Very soon, we will see inside ourselves like never before, with wearable, even internal , sensors that monitor even our most intimate biological processes.

 

It is likely to happen even before we figure out the etiquette and laws around sharing this knowledge.

 

Already products like the Nike+ FuelBand and the Fitbit wireless monitor track our daily activity, taking note of our steps and calories burned. The idea is to help meet an exercise regimen, perhaps lose some weight. The real-world results are uneven. For sure, though, people are building up big individual databases about themselves over increasingly long periods of time. So are the companies that sell these products, which store that data.

 

That is barely the start. Later this year, a Boston-based company called MC10 will offer the first of several “stretchable electronics” products that can be put on things like shirts and shoes, worn as temporary tattoos or installed in the body. These will be capable of measuring not just heart rate, the company says, but brain activity, body temperature and hydration levels. Another company, called Proteus, will begin a pilot program in Britain for a “Digital Health Feedback System” that combines both wearable technologies and microchips the size of a sand grain that ride a pill right through you. Powered by your stomach fluids, it emits a signal picked up by an external sensor, capturing vital data.

 

Another firm, Sano Intelligence, is looking at micro needle sensors on skin patches as a way of deriving continuous information about the bloodstream.

Pharma Marketers’ New Engagement Weapon: Treato Pharma

Pharma Marketers’ New Engagement Weapon: Treato Pharma | eSalud Social Media | Scoop.it

Treato Pharma is a new online patient intelligence service that crawls the billions of patient discussions happening online, and uses proprietary natural language processing algorithms to extract real-time insights regarding patients’ thoughts and attitudes. The interface will be officially announced at Health 2.0 next month, but I recently saw a demo and think the service deserves a central place in every pharma marketer’s toolkit.

 

Treato Pharma is built on the platform of Treato’s consumer site, Treato.com, an ad-free digital experience launched last year and trafficked by more than 700,000 unique visitors per month. Treato crunches mountains of “big data” behind the scenes and takes that vast unstructured content of web health discussions and filters it into relevant categories and topics around 24,000 drugs and conditions. Patients come to the site to see what their peers are thinking and feeling about treatment options and ailments, intuitively navigating to structured content that quickly provides the answers (and sparks new questions) about pressing, often critical medical challenges.
