Study: Complaining on Twitter correlates with heart disease risks

Study: Complaining on Twitter correlates with heart disease risks | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it

This week, a study was released by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania that found a surprising correlation when studying two kinds of maps: those that mapped the county-level frequency of cardiac disease, and those that mapped the emotional state of an area's Twitter posts.

In all, researchers sifted through over 826 million tweets, made available by Twitter's research-friendly "garden hose" server access, then narrowed those down to roughly 146 million tweets that had been posted with geolocation data from over 1,300 counties (each county needed to have at least 50,000 tweets to sift through to qualify). The team then measured an individual county's expected "health" level based on frequency of certain phrases, using dictionaries that had been put through scrutiny over their application to emotional states. Negative statements about health, jobs, and attractiveness—along with a bump in curse words—would put a county in the "risk" camp, while words like "opportunities," "overcome," and "weekend" added more points to a county's "protective" rating.

More than 80 percent of U.S. doctors surveyed use mobile apps or view professional content on mobile devices for work. That’s a significant increase over the numbers from around a year ago, according to a new survey.

 

The main reasons for adoption? Improved patient care and communication, and time efficiency, doctors say. The survey was conducted byMedData Group, a healthcare marketing company in Topsfield, MA, and involved polling 375 physicians around the country this month.
