Mount Sinai Platform Curates Digital Health Apps 

Mount Sinai Platform Curates Digital Health Apps  | Telehealth | Scoop.it

Providers interested in prescribing digital apps to help patients monitor and communicate about their health are sometimes overwhelmed by the sheer volume of mobile apps on the market. There are more than 245,000 medical apps available.

To address this issue, researchers in the Sinai App Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Health System have developed RxUniverse, an enterprise-wide tool that curates apps and enables physicians to digitally prescribe evidence-based apps to patients at the point of care.

 

RxUniverse features a curated list of apps that have been evaluated for efficacy based on published evidence and incorporated into a digital prescription delivery system.

“As clinicians, we want to prescribe apps because some of them really add value, but we don’t know how to distinguish the ones that are proven from the ones that aren’t,” explained Ashish Atreja, M.D., M.P.H., chief technology innovation and engagement officer and director of the Sinai AppLab. “It is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

 

Even if we know an app’s name and we tell a patient to download a particular app, the patient may go to the app store and find there are 10 apps with similar names, so they get confused about which to download,” he added. “We have an innovation lab and we build apps as well. We have faced these challenges firsthand over the last four years. We realized there had to be a better solution regarding how to get the right apps into the hands of the right patients at the right time.”

Why We Shouldn’t Call Apple ResearchKit and CareKit a valuable point of view that we share‘Platforms’

Why We Shouldn’t Call Apple ResearchKit and CareKit a valuable point of view that we share‘Platforms’ | Telehealth | Scoop.it
It’s no secret that getting people to engage in their health is one of our generation’s biggest challenges.Digital health engagement, especially, is often discussed as “a huge opportunity,” but the reality is that while people are interested in their health, it’s still incredibly difficult to get them to use digital tools consistently. Enacting behavior change is still a mostly elusive process.The potential for digital health tools comes from the fact that mobile devices and smartphones have changed functional behaviors for people all over the world. At this point, mobile device use is as ingrained in our lives as eating and sleeping. Cell phone use has become what researchers call a “functional behavior,” and not an insignificant percentage of those smartphones are iPhones. As the second largest provider of mobile devices, there are literally hundreds of millions of iPhones in use, all around the world.

Consumer health tech companies are moving increasingly into healthcare

Consumer health tech companies are moving increasingly into healthcare | Telehealth | Scoop.it

More and more, direct-to-consumer wearables companies are moving into business-to-business healthcare markets. It's not exactly a surprising move -- the potential for consumer technology to encourage healthier lifestyle choices is a core thesis of digital health, and one that could have big implications for healthcare as it faces a rise in chronic conditions. Nonetheless, over the course of the past year MobiHealthNews has noticed a creeping trend of the big names in consumer-facing digital health putting more resources behind their B2B programs.

 

Take Fitbit itself, for example. In the company's first quarter earnings call, CEO James Park wasn't shy about trumpeting the healthcare opportunity, stopping just shy of promising a regulated device.

AI Takes On Drug Safety

AI Takes On Drug Safety | Telehealth | Scoop.it

IBM Watson Health tries to do what no pharma company has done: solve the drug-safety puzzle.


Big Blue has found yet another business application for its precocious cognitive computing system. IBM Watson Health is collaborating with the biopharmaceutical company Celgene to develop a new platform for evaluating the safety of drugs—both before and after they hit the market—the two companies are announcing this morning. The new offering,

 

Watson for Patient Safety,” will gobble up anonymized medical records, claims data, and millions of electronic submissions to the FDA about potential drug side effects (known as individual case safety reports) to see if it can learn about the hidden dangers of medicines before they become too costly.
