Surgeons who use 3D printing to help explain patients’ conditions to them

Bioprinting continues to make significant strides towards a process that will involve dispensing cells onto biocompatible scaffolding using successive layers to generate tissue-like 3D structures and organs.

 

Along the way, however, there will be a number of interim steps that can also benefit the healthcare community. An excellent example of this is highlighted in a new study Physical Models of Renal Malignancies Using Standard Cross-Sectional Imaging and 3-Dimensional Printers: A Pilot Study.

 

The authors of the study, who work in theDepartment of Urology at Tulane University School of Medicine; were looking for a method of providing 3-dimensional models of patient’s kidneys based on cross-sectional imaging. According to Jonathan Silberstein, Assistant Professor of Urology, providing such a model “may aid patients, trainees, and clinicians in their comprehension, characterization, localization, and extirpation of suspicious renal masses.”

But while those who organize conferences, found coalitions and work as consultants gain acclaim, write books and give TED talks, patients and physicians wait for the promise of the digital health revolution to become a reality.

The good news is I’ve met clinicians who are doing fantastic customer service and today I introduce you to one.

Social Media and Pharma: Looking Beyond Facebook and Twitter

Social Media and Pharma: Looking Beyond Facebook and Twitter | Health, Digital Health, mHealth, Digital Pharma, hcsm latest trends and news (in English) | Scoop.it

Pharma continues to expand its use of social media.  As pharma’s understanding of social media has widened, its use of digital channels has broadened.  From Facebook to Twitter to Pinterest, these platforms may help companies promote disease awareness, spread their commercial message and connect with online communities.  Although each platform may present overlapping capabilities, it is important to remember that Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are not interchangeable.  Each social media scene has its benefits and its limitations. 

Facebook helps users actively communicate and connect with one another.  However, the potential for users to post off-label comments requires active monitoring of company Facebook pages to remain compliant with regulations.  Twitter helps companies promote their recent accomplishments and discuss industry trends using links contained in brief tweets — but it may not foster the type of community connection characteristic of Facebook.

Pinterest is the equivalent of a “virtual pinboard.”  Users create online bulletin boards to which they can post pictures and videos from their own activities or “repinned” from other users’ boards.  They can also “like” other users’ pins and generate links to their Pinterest accounts via Facebook and Twitter.

Among Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, platforms, Pinterest has exhibited the most growth across the past year — growing by upwards of 1000% and enjoying over 27.2 million viewers monthly.  A separatearticle notes that in February 2012, Pinterest drove more traffic to online publishers than did Twitter —1.05% compared to Twitter’s 0.82%.  According to HubSpot, from 2011 to 2012, 80% of pins on Pinterest were “re-pinned” while only 1.4% of tweets became re-tweets.

Pinterest has caught the attention of many pharmaceutical companies that are using pinned images and other media to connect with online users.  Pinterest helps companies promote disease awareness and serves as a channel to share non-branded messages.  At least five pharmaceutical companies — AstraZeneca, Bayer, Johnson & Johnson, Boehringer Ingelheim and Novo Nordisk — have a Pinterest account.  Some firms, like Bayer, host a wide variety of active boards on their accounts — each with a number of pins and accompanying descriptions.  Other companies center their efforts on therapeutic area- specific boards.  Bayer’s Pinterest account includes a “Bayer Advertising” board and a “Science, Education and Advocacy” board.

Pinterest also offers companies the opportunity to showcase a less commercialized version of themselves.  Bayer’s “Gardening” board, for instance, features tips and tricks which include how to identify common plant diseases.  It also provides suggestions for lawn and garden care.

As a more indirect marketing tool, Pinterest offers pharma some of the same benefits as Facebook and Twitter.  Like Twitter, Pinterest allows for the transfer of information snippets through repeated shares — only in the case of Pinterest, these data accompany media: images or videos.  Like Facebook, Pinterest offers pharma the opportunity to develop a sense of community with its online users.  For example, Novo Nordisk has boards that use pictures from recent events, including the company’s “World Diabetes Day,” to promote disease events and inspire community involvement.

Using the visual appeal of videos and photos, Pinterest helps companies target mobile audiences.  However, its relatively new status as a digital channel has not facilitated a large understanding of how to best leverage this platform.  Like Facebook and Twitter, Pinterest has its limitations.  If a user posts an off-label comment or discussion, companies would have to delete their pin — along with all associated comments — in order to delete the single comment.

Current estimates cite that 30% of digital health consumers who use Pinterest encounter health and medical content.  Given the growth of Pinterest over the past year, pharma’s use of this social media platform will be exciting to watch as 2013 progresses.

Dear Facebook: Stay Out Of Health Care

Dear Facebook: Stay Out Of Health Care | Health, Digital Health, mHealth, Digital Pharma, hcsm latest trends and news (in English) | Scoop.it
Last week, the internet was a twitter (see what I did there) about the
major health care story of ebola in the United States. However, there was
also a interesting rumor announced at the end of last week, to which people
should really be paying attention.

As reported by Reuters, Facebook is taking aim at health care, YOUR health
care. "The company is exploring creating online 'support communities' that
would connect Facebook users suffering from various ailments. A small team
is also considering new 'preventative care' applications that would help
improve their lifestyles," the article states.

Six years ago in 2008, I remember when Google tried to make a big splash
with their Google Health product. That is now discontinued. I also remember
in 2007 when Microsoft tried to make an impact with Healthvault. Of course,
this year, Apple is trying to make in roads with their Health Kit software
(I've written about that in the past at this link).

Will Facebook really make this happen? I don't think they should, and here
are three reasons they should not:

* People's Lack Of Trust In Facebook: There are many stories about
Facebook "Asking For Forgiveness" in breaking users privacy, instead
of Facebook "Asking For Permission." I mean, people get upset if
private photos get mistakenly shown on Facebook. What will happen if
their private health information gets out there?
* Online Support Communities Already Exist: I really enjoyed listening
to the vocal E-Patient community respond to this. "Hey Zuck, there
are already communities out here. Contact us and we'll tell you about
it." Don't quote me, but I think our pal Dr. Larry Chu, the Dean of
Stanford Medicine X, and E-patient Champion, said that quote :)
* Potentially Less Sharing on Facebook: I've already written about "
The End of the Medical Chart" in which patients would potentially ask
their physician to not include information because of fear of
hacking. People will do the same thing if this Facebook initiative
happens.

However, here are three reasons why Facebook will ignore me, and many other
people, and absolutely make this happen:

* Everyone Is On Facebook: Every time there is some kind of privacy
breach, people get upset and threaten to leave, but they don't. Every
few months, a new website like Ello comes along claiming to the
anti-Facebook, but no one leaves to go there. Facebook will be
around, and when it comes down to it, we put up with the Facebook
screw-ups, and continue using the service.
* Lessons Learned: I think that Facebook has done its homework and has
learned from the failed Google Health and Microsoft Healthvault
examples of the past. It will be interesting to see how they roll
this out when they're ready.
* No One Is Going To Stop Them: We, in the healthcare field, have been
asking mainstream tech companies to look more at health care as an
opportunity. 2015 will be the year that the major Silicon Valley
players will be looking at how to make our health better. Will
physicians, providers, patients, and the industry be ready?
