How Fitbit and IBM Watson are transferring the power of healthcare data from one hand to another

How Fitbit and IBM Watson are transferring the power of healthcare data from one hand to another | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it

The last week saw a couple of very important announcements in the world of healthcare.

 

Wearable device pioneer Fitbit announced an IPO that could raise over $100 million. Fitbit is at the leading edge of a consumer and connected health revolution that promotes the notion of a “quantified self” through a wearable device that works as a fitness tracker.

 

Separately, IBM Watson Healthcare announced a major push into the healthcare analytics space through strategic partnerships with Mayo Clinic, one of the nation’s leading hospitals and medical research institutions, and Epic, a provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems with access to vast amounts of patient medical records. IBM has been aggressively pursuing access to patient data to feed the Watson engine, more recently through the acquisition of Explorys and Phytel. These acquisitions and partnerships deepen IBM’s commitment to extend Watson’s cognitive computing power to advance the quality of healthcare, specifically in areas such as cancer prediction and treatment.

Why Digital Health Has Not (Yet) Transformed Pharmaceutical Drug Development

Why Digital Health Has Not (Yet) Transformed Pharmaceutical Drug Development | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it

For the last several years, I’ve been arguing that digital health provides an important opportunity to improve drug development, for several reasons.

First, by providing greater insight into the patient’s actual experience of disease, these technologies can reveal important differentiating features of new therapeutics, or point out aspects of illness that new medicines ought to attack.

 

Second, by offering a richer readout of phenotype, digital health measurements can reveal important disease subgroups, perhaps defined by a unique underlying mechanism that can be targeted.  I’ve discussed this in detail recently, and won’t focus on this again here.

Digital health technologies can of course be helpful in a range of other ways, such as improving adherence, population analytics, clinical decision support, etc.

 

While some have hailed the adoption of digital health by pharma, that’s not my impression, at least on the R&D side.  In my view, it remains very much on the “innovation initiative” side of things, rather than a clear business need (like pharmacology); drug development companies may be dipping their toes in and celebrating their bravery, but at best they are interested – certainly not what I’d call “pig committed.”

8 ways to improve your patient experience

8 ways to improve your patient experience | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it

The internet has added a whole new dimension to outside factors affecting a patient’s choice of care providers.

This is apparent by the fact that 82 percent of patients 50-plus now go to the internet for information on their care. CMS, Healthgrades and a host of other sites have made patient experience scores widely available. Social media has enabled people to expand their influence far beyond family and friends. Because Americans will tell twice as many people about a bad experience than a good one (White House Office of Consumer Affairs),it is more important than ever for physicians and hospitals to ensure patients not only receive excellent treatment, but their perception equals reality.

 

There are eight things you can do today to ensure your patient experience scores are high:

 

1. Realize you are in the ‘people’ business. Physicians and hospitals see their role as treating symptoms or illnesses, often losing sight of the person being treated. To ensure you provide the best care, consider what the person behind the treatment feels or needs.

 

2. Involve the patient. Today’s healthcare model requires patients to take a greater role in their treatment. Make sure you thoroughly discuss the pros and cons of the various treatment options so the patient will make the most informed decision without second thoughts.

 

3. Over communication. Regardless of how effective or efficient the treatment is, if patients do not know what to expect they will remain concerned throughout the process. By keeping them informed at every step, you are providing the reassurance they need to feel good about their experience.

 

4. Consider your audience. When communicating to patients, consider how your patients like to receive their information. Do you use email, telephone, or texts to remind patients of upcoming visits? Do you communicate with them between visits or provide educational materials?For some patients, there is nothing worse than to be given a pile of papers after an appointment. Most adults now prefer email or text messages, but you must ask to be sure.

 

5. Encourage questions. The best patients are actively engaged in their own care. Questions are the best way to gauge a patient’s level of understanding, and fill any gaps that may be present.

 

6. Look at all feedback as positive. According to “Understanding Customers” by Ruby Newell-Legner, only 4 percent of dissatisfied customers will voice their opinion while 91 percent will not come back. It is invaluable to uncover negative issues in your practice, so you can remedy the situation and keep more of your patients.

 

7. Coordinate services and visits. Whenever possible, combine visits or coordinate treatment to eliminate unnecessary visits. Patients and care givers are busy, and may be required to take off work for each appointment. Those with high deductibles or co-payments will look favorably on providers that help to lower their out-of-pocket expenses.

 

8. Work to get patients home sooner. The longer a patient stays in the hospital or a rehabilitation facility, the less satisfied they will be with their treatment. Programs with lower lengths of stay typically have higher scores.

Almost similar results:  The data shown by both devices was almost same, even though the Alpha showed some of the sharper peaks, says the expert. Both wearables run on optical sensors that use reflected light to gauge blood flow. According to Larson, the sensor on the watch collected readings after every 5 seconds while in workout mode, slowing after every 10 minutes in regular use.

Apple was recently in dispute when it confirmed that the watch might measure inappropriate data for those with tattoos as it uses optical technology. There was a support page developed to show that the ink, pattern and saturation of some tattoos can make it difficult for the watch to read.

It's old blood, not old bones, that makes fracture healing difficult among the elderly

It's old blood, not old bones, that makes fracture healing difficult among the elderly | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it

A recent finding by scientists from the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, and Duke University challenges long-held ideas about why our bones have a harder time healing as we age. Their research discovered that old mouse bones mend like youthful bones do when they're exposed to young blood after a fracture.

 

“The traditional concept is that as you get older, your bone cells kind of wear out so they can't heal as well, and we thought we'd find that during this study as well,” explains study co-author Benjamin Alman, of the Hospital for Sick Children. “But it turns out that it's not the bone cells, it's the blood cells. As you get older, the blood cells change the way they behave when you have an injury, and as a result the cells that heal bone aren't able to work as efficiently.”

 

The researchers paired lab mice, one old and one young, and subjected them to bone fractures, but that wasn't all they had in common. The living animals' circulatory systems were also joined together by a 150-year-old surgical technique known as parabiosis. Scientists removed a layer of skin from each mouse and stitched the exposed surfaces together. As the animals healed their capillaries joined, enabling their two hearts to pump the same blood throughout the two bodies as a single system. Parabiosis, which has been gaining new popularity in aging research, allowed Alman and colleagues to see what impacts the circulating factors of the younger mouse's blood had when introduced into the body of an older mouse.

 

The experiment, published this week in Nature Communications, suggests that young blood cells secrete some as-yet-unknown molecule, likely a protein or possibly some other chemical, that speeds up the healing of fractured bone. The molecule apparently does so by regulating levels of beta-catenin in bone cells known as osteoblasts. Keeping beta-catenin at the proper levels appears crucial for the formation of new high-density bone.

 

This ability is greatly diminished in older animals' blood because it no longer secretes the molecule, whose exact chemical nature remains a mystery at this point. “My guess is that there are a number of proteins involved that are made differently as we get older, and that they are responsible for the difficulty in healing bone,” Alman says.

 

The findings could prove good news for aging humans, but healing our bones won’t require the type of transfusions used in the experiment—nor will it borrow the synthesized “True Blood” variety that may soon enter clinical trials. Sharing human blood in this manner raises a number of red flags ranging from practicality to possible medical complications.

Un livre blanc dénonce la mauvaise observance | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it

« L’observance des traitements : un défi aux politiques de santé » : ce Livre blanc, dresse un état des lieux des conséquences d’une mauvaise observance et du mésusage des médicaments. Au-delà de ce constat, le Livre blanc propose quelques bonnes pratiques ainsi que six mesures à prendre d’urgence. Objectif : sensibiliser les pouvoirs publics et les professionnels de santé.Edité sous l’égide de la Fondation Concorde et sous la direction du Dr en psychologie clinique Denis Fompeyrine, l'ouvrage assène des chiffres qui font peur : " environ 50 % des hypocholestérolémiants, des antihypertenseurs ou des antidiabétiques oraux prescrits ne sont pas pris".En France, la non observance concerne donc près de la moitié des patients atteints de maladies chroniques dont le nombre ne cesse d'augmenter, et l'on estime son coût à 2 milliards d'euros par an, les journées d'hospitalisation induites à 1 000 000 et les décès à 8 000 (2).Il s'agit de la forme de mésusage la plus dangereuse et la plus répandue : des personnes âgées qui se trompent de posologie, des patients greffés qui ne prennent pas leurs anti-rejets ou encore des patients diabétiques qui oublient leurs traitements.

The Empowered E-Patient, s and social media, healthcare | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it
"E-Patient" is a term used to describe individuals who use the Internet and other tools to seek out, share and sometimes create information about health and wellness. Common words used to describe E-Patients: 1.e-patient, 2. internet patient, 3. health seeker, 4. cyberchondriac. As EHR implementation and adoption becomes more commonplace across the health care environment, providers are beginning to focus more on maximizing the value from their investment. Stakeholder engagement is a critical success factor for the effective use of EHRs and other health IT and patients are one of the last, and most important, groups to get involved in this process. While EHRs continue to evolve and technologies like patient portals become more common, providers have the opportunity to drive improvements in quality by encouraging patients to become an active participant in their own care.

Wearables 2015: Defining digital medicine

Wearables 2015: Defining digital medicine | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it
Digital medicine is poised to transform biomedical research, clinical practice and the commercial sector. Here we introduce a monthly column from R&D/venture creation firm PureTech tracking digital medicine's emergence.

 

Technology has already transformed the social fabric of life in the twenty-first century. It is now poised to profoundly influence disease management and healthcare. Beyond the hype of the 'mobile health' and 'wearable technology' movement, the ability to monitor our bodies and continuously gather data about human biology suggests new possibilities for both biomedical research and clinical practice. Just as the Human Genome Project ushered in the age of high-throughput genotyping, the ability to automate, continuously record, analyze and share standardized physiological and biological data augurs the beginning of a new era—that of high-throughput human phenotyping.

 

These advances are prompting new approaches to research and medicine, but they are also raising questions and posing challenges for existing healthcare delivery systems. How will these technologies alter biomedical research approaches, what types of experimental questions will researchers now be able to ask and what types of training will be needed? Will the ability to digitize individual characteristics and communicate by mobile technology empower patients and enable the modification of disease-promoting behaviors; at the same time, will it threaten patient privacy? Will doctors be prescribing US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared apps on a regular basis, not just to monitor and manage chronic disease but also to preempt acute disease episodes? Will the shift in the balance between disease treatment and early intervention have a broad economic impact on the healthcare system? How will the emergence of these new technologies reshape the healthcare industry and its underlying business models? What will be the defining characteristics of 'winning' products and companies?

 

These are just some of the questions we plan to ask over the coming months. In the meantime, we introduce here some of the key themes shaping R&D in the digital medicine field and focus on what they might mean for the biopharmaceutical and diagnostic/device industries.

7 Content Ideas from the Best Doctor Blogs

7 Content Ideas from the Best Doctor Blogs | Santé Industrie Pharmaceutique | Scoop.it

Good doctor blogging is a lot like good doctoring: Listen to patients and try to meet their needs. Extra points for being funny, warm, thoughtful and, most of all, engaging. Try some or all of these patient-friendly content types on your medical practice blog:

1. Answer frequently asked questions

Howard J. Luks, an orthopedic surgeon in Westchester and Dutchess Counties, New York, bases his blog on questions his patients ask in office, writing posts such as “Why Does the Front of My Knee Hurt?” and “You Have Torn Your Meniscus: What’s Next?” He explains how he comes up with blog post ideas in “Great Medical Blog Content: Think Like a Patient”.

2. Give health tips (with numbers)

For some reason, titles with numbers do well on the internet, probably because they promise the reader quick, concise information delivery. Take a look at “Atrial Flutter — 15 facts you may want to know” from the blog of cardiologist John Mandrola in Louisville, Kentucky.

3. Shoot video

Las Vegas internist Zubin Damania’s blog is a collection of parody music videos starring his alter ego ZDoggMD—they’re a little bit educational and a lot funny. That’s him in the image above, explaining Obamacare. Watch Damania do Taylor Swift as a doctor-shopping pill addict in “Blank Script” and Garth Brooks in “Friends with Low Platelets”. If you don’t have his singing and acting talent, a simple explanatory video like “‪What is Plantar Fasciitis?” by Philadelphia sports podiatrist Lee S. Cohen is fine. Just don’t expect to get ZDogg’s hundreds of thousands of video views on YouTube.

4. Chronicle the silly side of daily life as a doc

The author of the Dr. Grumpy in the House blog is anonymous, and a good thing too because the blog is all about the inane things his or her patients do or say, mostly told in verbatim dialogue, like this phone call:

Mrs. Call: “My husband is having a seizure. He sees Dr. Nerve for epilepsy.”

Dr. Grumpy: “Okay, do you have a medication to give him for seizures?”

Mrs. Call: “It’s in the bathroom. Can’t I just hold the phone next to him and you tell him to stop?”

5. Explore the doctor-patient relationship

Dr. Val Jones runs health education company Better Health and her blog posts at GetBetterHealth.com like “Why Do Patients Lie to Doctors?” go to the heart of the doctor-patient relationship and are equally readable by those on both sides of the stethoscope. She suggests some blog post topics for doctors in this list.

6. Filter the news

Patients need a guide to point out what’s important in the mountain of health news and information on the internet. That could be you. Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s The Chart blog on CNN.com is a good example of creating a news feed by highlighting a few of the many medical studies that get published.

7. Pick a niche, be an authority and do it with a distinctive voice

Greenville, South Carolina, pediatrician Chad Hayes blogs on “demystifying parenting and pediatrics” in a straight-talking style, like the post “Just Call It ‘Colic’: The Diagnosis That Isn’t”, a refreshing admission that doctors don’t really know much about a common condition. Colin E. Champ, a Pittsburgh radiation oncologist, blogs atCavemanDoctor.com, advocating for the “caveman diet” and critiquing conventional wisdom in medicine, diet and exercise.

And watch this blog for more tips and inspiration…

Pioneering doctor blogger Kevin Pho, a primary care doc in Nashua, New Hampshire, gives hands-on advice on running a blog and links to the latest posts from hundreds of other doctor blogs at KevinMD.com.

Another "Carrington Event" could put all of us back in the 19th century real quickly.  It pays to have a backup plan.  The Internet of things is highly susceptible to failure, either by fanatics dedicated to spreading human misery or by the power of our nearest star. Remember, these digital devices are magnificent tools, but, as with all tools, breakage is possible.  How many cell phone companies and ISPs have redundant systems in place in the event of an emergency? Our brain is the best tool we have, and it may have to function in a totally analog world once again.  Aloha, Russ.
