Using wearables to tackle Parkinson’s; Micheal Fox Organization Teams with Intel

Using wearables to tackle Parkinson’s; Micheal Fox Organization Teams with Intel | Social Media, TIC y Salud | Scoop.it
 SOURCE NoNovember 11, 2015 The common method for diagnosing Parkinson's disease is a 60-question test, with answers rated on a scale of 1 to 5. "Pass" the test, and you've got Parkinson's mHealth is going to change that. Intel and the Michael J. Fox Foundation are joining forces on a project to collect and analyze data from Parkinson's patients through wearable devices – more specifically, a Pebble watch. The idea is that a wrist-borne monitor will give researchers more insight to the debilitating disease than any Q&A. TO CONTINUE, GO TO mHEALTH NEWS

Tribune : les big data, un atout pour les associations de patients, l'expérience de Renaloo

Tribune : les big data, un atout pour les associations de patients, l'expérience de Renaloo | Social Media, TIC y Salud | Scoop.it

Renaloo a rapidement été amené à s'intéresser aux données. En effet, un registre national appelé "REIN" effectue un suivi des 76000 patients dialysés et greffés en France. Renaloo a pu réaliser des travaux de recherche sur la base de ce registre. Mais nous avons aussi mené notre propre enquête, dans le cadre des Etats Généraux du Rein, à laquelle près de 9000 patients ont répondu. L'analyse de ces données met en perspective de grandes inégalités géographiques et sociales dans l'accès à la dialyse et à la greffe. Elles entrainent des pertes de chances pour les patients et sont aussi très délétères pour notre système de santé : les traitements les moins efficaces et les plus coûteux sont trop souvent privilégiés.

App uses a network of smartphones to help research cancer: your phone crunches numbers while your sleep

App uses a network of smartphones to help research cancer: your phone crunches numbers while your sleep | Social Media, TIC y Salud | Scoop.it

The company DreamLab says will allow users to "donate" their smartphone's processing power while their owners are sleeping:

"Cancer affects so many of the people we love. But what if you could help by speeding up cancer research, simply by going to bed. Researchers are hindered by limited access to supercomputers. So that’s where you and the DreamLab app come in. It’s a free to purchase app* that uses the processing power of your idle phone to solve a piece of the cancer research puzzle. If just 1,000 people used the app, cancer puzzles would be solved 30 times faster."

​Moaning about medicine on Twitter? How those tweets could help scientists

​Moaning about medicine on Twitter? How those tweets could help scientists | Social Media, TIC y Salud | Scoop.it

Among all the empty trivia on social networks, researchers now think important scientific data is just waiting to be found.

Scientists in Spain believe messages posted on social media can be a valuable source of information about adverse drug effects that have not been mentioned in clinical trials or registered in reporting systems by patients or doctors.

A research team at Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) is currently working on the development of a toolkit for processing large volumes of health data.

As part of the project, the team is developing ways to take social-media comments about drugs, diseases, and adverse drugs reactions, and transform them into structured information for better decision-making in the healthcare sector.

The use of social-media big data could also help pharmaceutical companies identify potential new drug candidates and lower research costs. This type of data may also assist in monitoring the effectiveness of drugs by collecting data in unrestricted and mixed environments.

So far, the team of scientists at UC3M has published aprototype, under the European research project TrendMiner, storing five million tweets and 40,000 comments, written in Spanish and collected over a year.

The prototype includes a linguistic processor based on MeaningCloud commercial software, which recognizes mentions of drugs, adverse effects, and diseases, and then displays them in clouds of tags and different timelines.

LISTENING TO THE RIGHT CHANNELS

Using these techniques, colloquial descriptions by patients in social networks are translated into manageable data in comparative studies to obtain patterns and trends.

The messages can also be combined with those obtained from other sources, such as electronic medical records, explained Paloma Martinez, researcher and professor of the laboratory of advanced database at UC3M.

Aggregated and standardized information is anonymized to comply with the highest level of security required by the current Spanish Organic Law on Data Protection.

For Martinez, whether medical agencies consider changes to the technical specifications of a drug, or pharmaceutical companies gather feedback on their products and know how to position themselves against competitors, it is important "to be listening to the right channels".

"Patients do not explain everything to doctors but are comfortable with sharing information in social networks and forums," she said.

To improve the system, the UC3M team is now working on algorithms to see whether the information obtained has statistical significance. Scientists are also trying to improve the analysis of patient-oriented language.

 

To do this analysis, they are applying deep-learning algorithms, based on the use of neural networks, capable of working with massive volumes of data, and trained to analyze and understand the language.

"In this domain not only do we work analyzing social media but also other documents such as clinical notes and scientific publications," said Martinez.

Marc Torrent, head of the Big Data Center of Excellence in Barcelona, said this kind of research may be a major breakthrough for the pharmaceutical industry.

However, Felip Miralles Barrachina, director of the eHealth unit at Barcelona Digital Technology Centre (BDigital), a member of the Catalan government's technology hub known as Eurecat, is not so sure.

"The results may be qualitative, but are unlikely to have clinical value in the study of adverse drug reactions," he said. "[But] we must not be dogmatic," he added.

According to Farmaindustria, an association representing the pharmaceutical industry in Spain, the sector spent €950m in research and development in 2014 and got back into the growth after three consecutive years of falling investment.

Interesante estudio que explora el uso que le dan los oncólogos a Internet y redes sociales. La mayoría buscan información sobre formación y congresos y también artículos científicos, como forma de mantenerse actualizados.

 

Pero casi el 60% manifestó no tener suficiente tiempo y el 20% manifestaron dudas sobre aspectos relacionados con la privacidad y la seguridad.

 

Buen punto de partida, pero mucho camino por recorrer.

An Online Medical Database Is Reducing Doctor Error

An Online Medical Database Is Reducing Doctor Error | Social Media, TIC y Salud | Scoop.it
Diagnostic errors burden providers, payers, and patients around the world. They lead to avoidable illness, suffering, and poor health outcomes and increase costs of care significantly. Access to evidence-based medical content at the point of care that answers clinical questions and ensures accuracy in diagnosis can reduce diagnostic errors and improve outcomes. Our organizations are involved in the efforts to expand global access. We encourage others to join us in this effort and offer three recommendations for accelerating this drive.

Not really unexpected, but take heed businesses there are quite a few things that if made as a searchable, on-line database that one can reference to deal with complex / complicating processes that people have to deal with, this is the best option to help deal with the challenges.  It should come as no surprise to those who would benefit by such a searchable tool, and it helps to save lives too.

¿Qué es la esalud? : una revisión sistemática de 51 definiciones publicadas | Journal of Medical Internet Research

¿Qué es la esalud? : una revisión sistemática de 51 definiciones publicadas | Journal of Medical Internet Research | Social Media, TIC y Salud | Scoop.it

El término esalud es ampliamente utilizado por muchas personas, instituciones académicas, organismos profesionales, y organizaciones de financiación. Se ha convertido en un neologismo aceptado a pesar de la falta de una definición clara o precisa acordada. Creemos que la comunicación entre los muchos individuos y organizaciones que utilizan el término podría ser mejorado por los datos completos sobre la gama de significados que abarca el término.

 

Las 51 definiciones únicas que hemos recuperado mostró una amplia gama de temas, pero hay un consenso claro sobre el significado del término esalud. Identificamos 2 temas universales (salud y tecnología) y 6 menos generales (comercio, las actividades, los interesados, los resultados, el lugar y las perspectivas).

 

Conclusiones: El uso generalizado del término esalud sugiere que es un concepto importante, y que no hay un acuerdo tácito de su significado. Este compendio de definiciones propuestas puede mejorar la comunicación entre las muchas personas y organizaciones que utilizan el término.

MSD launches preventative healthcare accelerator | Social Media, TIC y Salud | Scoop.it
Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD) has joined forces with Spanish telecoms company Telefonica to launch a new healthcare accelerator fund.

Velocity Health will be the UK's first digital preventative healthcare accelerator and sees the pharma company collaborate with Telefonica's Wayra Open Future start-up programme.

MSD's managing director Mike Nally said: “Technology is revolutionising how we manage healthcare and the UK can be at the heart of it. Digital start-ups are at the forefront of this innovation.

“As a healthcare company with a long legacy of investing in innovation and R&D, we want to actively invest in these types of businesses and harness the amazing talent that is emerging so that we become equally good at 'recognising and preventing' disease as 'diagnosing and treating' to help reduce demand for expensive acute services and capacity in the long term.”

Interesante proyecto de e-Salud que se está desarrollando en Guatemala a través de la ONG TulaSalud, que con el apoyo de la fundación canadiense Tula. Están implementando distintas acciones que ponen de relieve el potencial que tienen las tecnologías en el contexto de las comunidades rurales, en los que hay una menor implantación de infraestructuras y un menor acceso de la población a la sanidad.

 

Este proyecto incide por un lado en la Teleeducación, como herramienta de capacitación de profesionales técnicos de enfermería, pero también directamente para la formación de mujeres adolescentes, con el objetivo de disminuir el número de embarazos no deseados y la mortalidad materno-infantil.

 

Y por otro lado una labor de Telemedicina, con el objetivo de cubrir de servicios básicos a las comunidades rurales a través de una red de facilitadores sanitarios, que a través de un teléfono móvil, pueden realizar interconsultas con otros profesionales sanitarios, desempeñar labores de capacitación por audioconferencia telefónica, y llevar un registro y seguimiento de los pacientes a través de servicios de mensajería y voz.
