Telemedicine Brings Parkinson’s Care to “Anyone, Anywhere”

Telemedicine Brings Parkinson’s Care to “Anyone, Anywhere” | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | Scoop.it

A new study shows that a neurologist in an office thousands of miles away can deliver effective specialized care to people with Parkinson’s disease.  For individuals with the condition – many of whom have never seen a specialist – these “virtual house calls” could allow them to live independently...........................

eMedToday's insight:

“We have an ample supply of neurologists in the country to take care of people with Parkinson’s, but because of distance, disability, and the distribution of doctors, many patients have a difficult time seeing a specialist,” said Dorsey.

Working with PatientsLikeMe, the study invited individuals with Parkinson’s who lived in the five states where Dorsey is licensed to practice medicine – California, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, and New York – to receive one free telemedicine consultation in the comfort of their own home.

The participants downloaded secure web-based video conferencing software developed by California-basedVidyo.  The technology, which is akin to Skype, only requires an Internet connected computer and a webcam.

72% of Consumers Are Willing To See A Doctor Via Telehealth Video Conferencing

72% of Consumers Are Willing To See A Doctor Via Telehealth Video Conferencing | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | Scoop.it

72% of consumers across the eight countries are willing to see a doctor via telehealth video conferencing for non-urgent appointments, according to Intel survey.

 

The study, “Intel Healthcare Innovation Barometer” was conducted across eight countries by Penn Schoen Berland in Brazil, China, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan and the United States from July 28 to Aug. 15, 2013 among a representative sample of 12,000 adults ages 18 and older.

 The findings concludes that most people are optimistic about technology innovations advancing healthcare, are open to sharing healthcare information for the greater good and receptive to using sensors for personalized care.
As the technology of remote patient monitoring solutions and mobile health applications improve, consumers now have the ability to connect with their providers in a variety of ways to embrace new behaviors

Other key findings of the Intel Healthcare Innovation Barometer include:

 

Improving Personal Care and Self-Monitoring with Technology

Sixty-six percent of people say they would prefer a personalized healthcare regimen designed specifically for them based on their genetic profile or biology.Fifty-three percent of people say they would trust a test they personally administered as much or more than if performed by a doctor. 

Sharing Anonymous Digital Health Records for the Common Good

People are more willing to anonymously share their health records or genetic information than their banking information or phone records.More than three-quarters (76 percent) of respondents over the age of 55 would be willing to anonymously share results of lab tests or health monitoring to contribute to research databases compared with 64 percent of millennials.India is the country most willing to share healthcare information to aid innovation. 

Emerging Technology Tools for Increased In-Home Health Management

Half of those surveyed would trust a diagnosis delivered via video conference from their doctor.Seventy-two percent are receptive to communication technologies that allow them to remotely connect to their doctor.The innovation least likely to be incorporated by the global population is a robot performing surgery.Almost half of respondents (43 percent) globally would trust themselves to monitor their own blood pressure and other basic vitals.

Getting medicines to the poor: solving the logistics challenge

Why can Coca-Cola get to rural communities and essential health supplies can't? Join our online debate on how to address global health supply chain challenges, Thursday 18 July at 1pm BST
eMedToday's insight:

Finally, is there a role for technology? If mobile phones are giving farmers access to markets, how can they be used to increase access to healthcare? Unite for Sight lists "decentralising delivery" as one of the "techniques for effective supply chains". The NGO writes: "Of the 1 billion people living in extreme poverty, 75% do not live in cities. The decentralisation of healthcare away from traditional healthcare hubs can improve delivery and improve access by eliminating barriers of time and transportation often required to seek care ... One particular example has been the development of telemedicine."

eMedToday's insight:

Telehealth includes such technologies as telephones, facsimile machines, electronic mail systems, and remote patient monitoring devices, which are used to collect and transmit patient data for monitoring and interpretation. While they do not meet the Medicaid definition of telemedicine they are often considered under the broad umbrella of telehealth services. Even though such technologies are not considered “telemedicine,” they may nevertheless be covered and reimbursed as part of a Medicaid coverable service, such as laboratory service, x-ray service or physician services (under section 1905(a) of the Social Security Act).
