Digital health funding up 45% in 2012

Digital health funding up 45% in 2012 | Better Safety | Scoop.it

Last year was a banner year for digital health, and in 2013, it can only get better as the trends in healthcare are increasingly digital-based. In 2012, tech companies poured $1.4 billion into digital health companies, a 45 percent increase from 2011, according to a recent year-end report from healthcare technology accelerator Rock Health.

 

Fifty-six percent more deals occurred in 2012 for digital health than in 2011. Rock Health's report indicates that compared to the declining investment in traditional healthcare, software and digital health funding is on its way up. Another impressive number is 134, the number of digital health companies that each raised $2 million in 2012.

 

Personal health tools and tracking, health consumer engagement, EMR/EHR and hospital administration all are moving toward digital, comprising one-third of all digital deals made in 2012.

 

Overall, 179 organizations invested in digital health companies, with most only engaging in a single deal. Eight investors, however--including Qualcomm Ventures, Aberdare Ventures and Merck Global Health Innovation Fund--invested in three or more digital health companies.

Top Ten Internet-Smart Doctors in the WORLD!

Top Ten Internet-Smart Doctors in the WORLD! | Better Safety | Scoop.it

Welcome to the 1st Annual "Top Ten Internet-Smart Doctors in the World".
Now, why, you may ask, do we presume to say "World"?

Because the internet, as Mr. Gates says, has made the world a global village.

On the internet, one can find out many wonderful things, and, for this page, you have access to things that are happening in faraway lands, as if they were next door.

Doctors are increasingly using the internet, to communicate, to educate, and to use sometimes as medical devices. And now docs are tackling social media, which a few to the Top Ten do. The Top Ten come from all over, from Australia to the Bay area.  There is one from the Netherlands, one from Hungary, one from India, and one from Australia.  The other six are Yanks.  And they are all MDs.

Characteristics that the top ten share are traits of enthusiasm for their craft, intelligence, diligence, intimate knowledge of how the net can be leveraged to benefit healthcare,  and love of teaching.

Pharma's 2012 in … social media - PMLiVE

Pharma's 2012 in … social media - PMLiVE | Better Safety | Scoop.it

The last 12-months have seen the pharma industry become increasingly comfortable with social media, or at least the idea of using it.

Social media channels were often used to support off-line campaigns and, where three years ago the launch of a new Twitter account would have been big news, this year it was pretty much expected that companies should use social media.

Noteworthy uses of social media by pharma in 2012 included Roche’s sponsorship in March of the Diabetes Nest platform, a Twitter-based social network that curates, filters and presents relevant, real-time conversations to the diabetes online community.

In June, Pfizer went all-out with a major US social media campaign to kick-start a conversation about ageing. The company’s long-term Get Old initiative includes Facebook and Twitter presences, which run alongside a bespoke online community that will allow users to share and view stories, photos and videos about getting old, and even vote on how they feel about ageing.

Then in November, GlaxoSmithKline allowed its vice president of global brand communications , Kerry O’Callaghan, to use the corporate @GSKTwitter account and participate in a tweet chat about internal communications strategies for major events. (Naturally the focus was on GSK’s sponsorship of the London 2012 Olympic games.)

Pinteresting?

The rise of online pin board Pinterest during 2012 presented, and still presents, pharma with a rare opportunity to engage with an emerging social media channel.

It may not have grabbed as much press attention as Twitter, but it is the first new social media channel to have threatened to really go mainstream in the last couple of years and, in January 2012, it became the fastest social media site to break the 10 million unique visitor mark.
The first big pharma company to join Pinterest was Bayer in April, when it began using it to share images and information about its activities in the US.

By September, the number of companies exploring Pinterest was gradually gaining momentum, as Boehringer Ingelheim, GE Healthcare boards, Menarini and Novo Nordisk all started pinning.

A return to blogging

Blogs were one of the first social networks that pharma companies used as external-facing communications tools, but their long-form, long-term nature has seen them overtaken by tools that are quicker and easier to use, such as Twitter.

Nevertheless, blogs have remained a constant presence on the pharma social media scene, and each year has generally seen one or two new additions to the ranks.

This year, however, it felt like blogging had a resurgence. The numbers remain fairly low, but companies launched a variety of specialised and general blogs over the last 12 months.

In October, AstraZeneca launched a science-focused blog called Lab Talk that it hopes will eventually grow into an online scientific forum. The new site aims to be a place that scientists from within AZ and the wider industry can discuss “cutting-edge science and innovation” and – perhaps somewhat hopefully - share their ideas and approaches.

But while AZ was building on the experience of setting up its corporate blog (AZ Health Connections, which launched in 2009), Sanofi took the opposite path in December, going from the specialised Discuss Diabetes blog it launched in 2011 to debut in December its new corporate Speaking of Sanofi blog.

There were further blogs launches throughout the year from Bayer, which assembled a team of UK patient contributors for its diabetes blog; Lilly, which launched in Canada the first of a series of local versions of its LillyPad corporate blog; Shire with its Your Partner In Epilepsy blog; and Boehringer Ingelheim, with its More Health corporate social responsibility blog.

From blogs to Twitter to Pinterest, when taken as a whole pharma’s initiatives in 2012 show an industry making ever-greater use of social media channels. But, the still fragmented nature of companies’ use of the technology suggests that while they might be comfortable with the idea of digital channels, in practice there’s still some way to go.
