Silicon Valley Turns Smartphones Into Mobile Health Clinics

Silicon Valley Turns Smartphones Into Mobile Health Clinics | Travel insurance | Scoop.it

Silicon Valley companies are creating more mobile health apps and getting more financial backing than ever before. You can now use your phone to help diagnose an ear infection, and even monitor a diabetic child's blood sugar.

 

"It's the next big thing, no question about it,” Vital Connect CEO Nersi Nazari said of mobile health. Vital Connect in Campbell just launched the HealthPatch MD. It’s a patch that sticks onto the skin and provides constant heart monitoring and tracks pulse, respiratory rate, and other health metrics. It’s the first device of its kind and available for doctors or loved ones to track someone with a heart condition.

This is a great idea because sometimes people can not find time in their busy schedules to go over to a clinic for care.

Curious how these metrics compare to the HRA we have deployed to our consumers.  As an organization we have decided to target key chronic conditions to help reduce costs. What other prevention programs could or should we be considering to assist our members?

ComplexInsight's curator insight, July 27, 2013 3:04 PM

As antibiotic resistance continues to evolve and spread - it continues to not get the attention and funding it needs. Research work is urgently needed in new treatments but also in how bacteria, evolve, transport and move in and around hospitals, how they communicate, and how to optimize standard infection-control practices.  Good article from Nature. scary reality.

Four Reasons Doctors Worry About Social Media

Four Reasons Doctors Worry About Social Media | Travel insurance | Scoop.it
Rather than isolating doctors, emerging technologies promise to be fundamentally enabling, allowing doctors to redefine and strengthen their relationships -- with patients and with colleagues. The result: a new sense of connection and meaning.

David Yates's curator insight, April 14, 2013 12:41 PM

Finally. The relationship between patients and their Doctors can transform communications and build relationships, leading to much more transparency, innovation, education and preventive treatments. Ideally and hopefully, the realm of social media can trigger a paradigm shift wherein dostors, colleagues and patients can address causes of illnesses and mitigate them rather than treat symptoms.
