Can Watson mine Facebook to spot a concussion?

Can Watson mine Facebook to spot a concussion? | Health, Digital Health, mHealth, Digital Pharma, hcsm latest trends and news (in English) | Scoop.it

IBM is partnering with Triax Technologies to potentially harness its supercomputer for identifying head injuries on social networks.

The companies are working to embed Watson natural language capabilities into a smart impact sensor headband that Triax offers. 

Triax is among a number of companies working with wearable sensors to combat and treat concussions, which comprise the vast majority of the 3.8 million sports-related head injuries per year.

So far, the technology is being used in sensors that measure hits to the head, as well as decision support tools that help trainers and medical personnel test an athlete for evidence of a concussion immediately after the incident.

IBM and Triax could advance the ability to identify whether certain patients are in fact concussive and do so outside of a doctor's office or hospital, potentially spotting head injuries the athlete does not even know about yet. 

The technology might pick up on questionable or risky content used by an athlete in social media, for instance, then examine whether that athlete recently sustained a head injury.

"Watson's language service enables the wearable to factor in more diverse data sources such as social media to analyze sentiment and infer cognitive and social characteristics to provide a more holistic view of athletes," IBM explained in a prepared statement.

MSD launches preventative healthcare accelerator

MSD launches preventative healthcare accelerator | Health, Digital Health, mHealth, Digital Pharma, hcsm latest trends and news (in English) | 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.”

FCC + FDA: Working together to regulate digital health

FCC + FDA: Working together to regulate digital health | Health, Digital Health, mHealth, Digital Pharma, hcsm latest trends and news (in English) | Scoop.it
How is medical device interoperability regulated? And, when it comes to mobile health apps, what should be regulated?

As medical devices converge with wireless technologies, the FCC along with the FDA is beginning to take an active role in regulating mobile health and device interoperability. This relationship between the two agencies was discussed at this week’s AdvaMed 2015 conference in San Diego.

The fact remains, after all, that the government must provide regulatory oversight for medical devices that communicate remotely – to preserve users’ privacy and security, and to ensure these devices actually work. And it’s a constant question over what should be regulated, and what should not.

“We make choices about which products to scrutinize, and which to not scrutinize,” said Bakul Patel, associate center director for digital health at FDA.  “That comes from the inherent heterogeneity of medical devices.”

Whether you know it or not, you represent your hospital/clinic and the nursing profession as a whole with every single post, photo, or share you submit on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. The key is to learn the tricks and tips that will help you keep your posts respectful, clean, and appropriate for everyone.

 

The Dos and Don’ts of Social Media:

 

The Dos of Social MediaThe Don’ts of Social Media1. Be proud of your profession. Whether you’re at work or not, you’re a representative of your field and your employer.1. Don’t violate HIPPA! Take patient privacy very seriously and do not post anything that would violate it. Stay familiar with the privacy rights of your patients.2. Share good news and information about your employer and profession.2. Avoid using hashtags and other identifiers that would tag you, your coworkers, or your employer to compromising photos or posts.3. Speak highly of your employers new developments and accomplishments.3. Never bash your employer or patients on social media. This is a good way to get overlooked for that promotion or outright lose your job.4. Keep in mind that social media is a very public forum and is representative of your and your life.4. Don’t click the “post” or “tweet” button if you have any reservations. If it feels even a little wrong, it probably is.

 

As a healthcare professional you have to remember that you are a steward of the people and have a ton of vulnerable patient’s most personal information at your disposal.

It is easy to get caught up in using social media as a therapeutic outlet, but don’t forget that people trust you and nobody wants their embarrassing stories blasted on the internet even–if it is anonymous.

Trust your gut and never post anything online that you don’t want haunting you forever because once it’s published it will never totally be gone.
