rob halkes's curator insight, November 8, 2013 4:10 AM

The case about health apps figuring growing need for health information, the need to accommodate one's ability to do some about one's proper health condition and to get support for that.
This need will ask for registering one's health relevant data, sharing information and get tailored help. It is just the latter one, that demands changes in the delivery of health care. The question for future efficiency of this developing trend is how to match both medical and patients' demands to such processes: the third perspective on the very process.

It is my experience that such can best be done in the framework of developing ehealth.

Statins for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease - The Cochrane Library - Taylor - Wiley Online Library

Reducing high blood cholesterol, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in people with and without a past history of CVD is an important goal of pharmacotherapy. Statins are the first-choice agents. Previous reviews of the effects of statins have highlighted their benefits in people with CVD. The case for primary prevention was uncertain when the last version of this review was published (2011) and in light of new data an update of this review is required.

Health benefits of physical activity: the evidence

The primary purpose of this narrative review was to evaluate the current literature and to provide further insight into the role physical inactivity plays in the development of chronic disease and premature death. We confirm that there is irrefutable evidence of the effectiveness of regular physical activity in the primary and secondary prevention of several chronic diseases (e.g., cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, obesity, depression and osteoporosis) and premature death. We also reveal that the current Health Canada physical activity guidelines are sufficient to elicit health benefits, especially in previously sedentary people. There appears to be a linear relation between physical activity and health status, such that a further increase in physical activity and fitness will lead to additional improvements in health status.

It's never been easier to change the world | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

A good place to start in understanding the value and potential of digital citizenship in the context of health and wellbeing is to define what we mean by “active citizenship”. The term in itself provokes great debate, but the British Council has a neat definition that we can use for the purposes of this article:

“A citizen who commits his or herself to an action that benefits society.”
