Effective Public Health Communication in an Interconnected World - The Rockefeller Foundation

Last year, Ebola was the top global health headline—at least when it came to infectious diseases. Right now it’s Zika, as it spreads to new parts of the globe after decades of an unremarkable existence in the forests of eastern Africa, sparking fear amidst confirmation that humans can transmit it to each other, and that it can cause birth defects. Next year? Only time will tell, but this much is clear: There will be another epidemic. It could well be global in nature. The time to prepare for it is now. And an essential yet widely overlooked part of this preparedness must be how governments and public health leaders at all levels will communicate about both their planning and response.

Why So Many Doctors Are Advising Startups. It's less about the money than trying to solve the right problems.

Why So Many Doctors Are Advising Startups. It's less about the money than trying to solve the right problems. | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

It's less about the money than trying to solve the right problems.

Ethan Weiss, a cardiologist at UC San Francisco, spends long hours at the hospital treating patients. But between shifts, he takes calls with health-technology entrepreneurs to offer them advice and feedback.

As Weiss explains, it's not about the money. He does the majority of this advisory work for free or in exchange for a tiny chunk of equity. It's also not about prestige: He doesn't speak publicly about the startups he's consulting with. So why does he bother?

Health-care industry ripe for tech disruption | Bloomberg Professional | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
The health-care industry, suffering from rising costs, is undergoing a major change from a fee-based to a value-based model.

Value-based health-care model puts greater focus on technology
Government agencies around the world are changing the health-care reimbursement system from a fee-for-service to a value-based-care model with the objective of reducing rising costs. Under this model, reimbursements will be made based on outcomes and on the quality of care — not on the number of procedures and tests done on a patient. This change is forcing the industry to look at various technologies to better understand their cost structure and provide new methods of patient treatment.

 Hospital leaders: Words of caution for social media outreach

 Hospital leaders: Words of caution for social media outreach | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

So you’re tweeting, posting to Facebook, updating Pinterest boards and maybe putting pictures up on Instagram—that’s great for your hospital and your brand awareness.

But here are three factors you might not have considered when it comes to social media use:

Employees behaving badly

When it comes to employees and social media, we hope that workers will behave appropriately, but unfortunately that’s not always the case. What do you do when you find out that an employee has a personal blog that contains information that could potentially identify a patient? Or when you get a call from an administrator saying an employee had been having an inappropriate conversation with a patient through Facebook? These are true stories, and such situations, or worse, could happen at any hospital.

[More:]

It’s vital to have an employee social media policy in place so you can address any violations with the appropriate disciplinary actions. That means your human resources folks must be on board, and your legal team should review the policy to be sure it doesn’t violate the latest regulations from the National Labor Relations Board. It’s also good to have that policy as part of new employee orientation, and as a requirement during annual performance evaluations.

Addressing negative comments

Wouldn’t it be nice if social media users saw things through rose-colored glasses? Sadly, it seems that more and more people are using these networks to troll and voice their (often negative) opinions, or harass people. So do you have a plan to address negative posts?

When we started out, we thought that we should leave everything, even the negatives, because it would affect our credibility if we were taking down posts. But what happens when you have a person who is naming a doctor in a post on your Facebook page and potentially damaging that doctor’s reputation? We decided then and there that negative posts naming a member of the staff of the hospital should be taken down immediately. The issue also should be resolved offline, when possible. Having a public policy about your social media pages made available to the public can explain why a post was removed--and is important for your credibility.

Monitoring content

We’ve probably all heard “content is king.” It’s true that you need good content in social media to draw attention and engagement. But if you’re spending all your time creating that content, and not monitoring what people are saying, then your efforts could be all for nothing.

If you have a follower on Twitter who is threatening to report a security guard for the way he treated his fiancée (again, true story) and you’re not responding, that can have more impact on your brand than a year’s worth of great content. Or if someone is being a “citizen journalist” and reporting erroneous information about your hospital, such as saying you have an Ebola patient (again, true story), then your brand could be seriously impacted by incorrect information. You also could have a public panic on your hands from such erroneous information.

Social media is not just about voicing what you want heard, it’s about listening to your community and responding to their concerns, complaints and questions. That also doesn’t mean responding only between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. You should have a plan in place for monitoring for negative comments after hours, as well.
Are there other things your hospital has experienced that you didn’t expect in social media? Reach out in the comments.

Women frequently cite lack of consistency of message as an issue within maternity care. Ensuring sound, evidence-based advice is provided to women enables them to make informed decisions surrounding their care.

With the findings of the recent Maternity Review putting even greater control in the hands of pregnant women, it is more important than ever that women feel empowered to make decisions that are right for them. This requires them having access to credible sources of information.

Social media provides us with a unique opportunity to address serious issues with women that may otherwise be left to somewhat dubious sources of information. It enables us to deliver a consistent message en-masse and ensures that women have access to evidence-based information. It opens up opportunities for discussion and innovation in care.

With this in mind, we have established a Twitter account to provide women with a vital source of evidence-based information that is non biased and Trust specific.

Is Wearable Technology Over-Hyped?

Is Wearable Technology Over-Hyped? | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
While there is much excitement over mobile health technology, there is a belief that it could be over-hyped.

The problem with many trends is that it can be difficult to separate the hype from the reality. With every new Apple product launch, for example, there are a multitude of stories about how the new features will change various landscape, but when the product is announced those features are not always present.

This is also clearly present in the mobile health landscape. Many major mobile device companies are including health tracking as a core part of its products and healthcare providers are adopting them into operations. However, while there is excitement over the use of wearable technology and other mobile devices to help improve patient health, there is concern that the hype has surpassed the reality.

Politicians should stay out of the business of health care | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it

Health care is our generation’s political football.

Let’s take a look at the stances of the top remaining candidates to be president:

Bernie Sanders — He would be in favor of a single-payer system; Hillary Clinton calls his plan a “train wreck.”

Ms. Clinton — You can probably expect more Obamacare/​Affordable Care Act, increased government control or involvement in our health care spending and processes.

Donald Trump — He is calling for a bipartisan replacement of the Affordable Care Act. We don’t know the details yet, but according to Mr. Trump, “It’s going to be great and a lot better than our current system.”

Use of social media in first-hand diagnosis and predicting healthcare resource needs with machine learning

Use of social media in first-hand diagnosis and predicting healthcare resource needs with machine learning | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
On April 22-23, Tieto and OuluHealth network hosted a joint hackathon in Oulu, Finland, with 40 participants inspired to generate new innovative healthcare solutions based on data and openness, both in architecture and mindset. Team HyvTek came through as the winner of the Integrations stream, with their Snapchat-based solution that makes it easy for patients to get in touch with the healthcare professionals. Team Zohan was selected as the winner of the Analytics stream. Zohan presented a concept by which machine learning is used to predict healthcare resource needs.

OuluHealth network operates as a healthcare innovation engine in the Oulu region. City of Oulu and Oulu University Hospital, that are part of the network, joined forces with Tieto to arrange the hackathon. Oulu University Hospital’s TestLab (OYS TestLab) also served as the event arena. The competition challenges were planned to respond to real healthcare needs. Participants used open data from City of Oulu’s #6Aika project and open interfaces from Tieto’s Lifecare patient data system as their primary tools during the 24-hour event.

Jury found the winning ideas responding well to the key criteria of the competition: having patient in the centre, demonstrating innovativeness as well as interesting use of data and Lifecare system’s certified open interfaces. In team HyvTek’s solution the person seeking for treatment takes a photo of his injury with mobile phone and uses Snapchat to share it swiftly with respective healthcare where professionals can use the photo to conclude the nature of the injury and provide the customer with homecare advice, prescription of basic medication or a doctor’s appointment, for example. Team Zohan used its 24 hours to tackle a clear challenge that is core to healthcare: predicting resource needs. In their concept, Zohan managed to demonstrate smart use of machine learning algorithms as response to the challenge.

Both teams received a monetary reward of 1,500 euros. In addition, team HyvTek’s Snapchat idea was given special recognition by Oulu University Hospital and team Zohan was awarded a special prize by City of Oulu.

“Our aim was to find innovative and practical ideas by which we could develop services to customers as well as the use of data in healthcare management. Equally importantly, we wanted to motivate and support young developers and professionals to continue in the interesting field of healthcare. We were positively surprised of how much was achieved in only 24 hours: a good number of ideas whose innovativeness I as a healthcare professional found truly inspiring. Some of them may be developed further and end up being used in real-life”, explains Sirkku Pikkujämsä, head of healthcare services, City of Oulu.

”We want to develop healthcare and welfare solutions with increasing openness and actively in ecosystems. Hackathons offer one way of achieving this: they are practical, solution-oriented and efficient in bringing together different capabilities and perspectives over a given topic. Our event in Oulu turned out a success, and I want to thank our partners and all participants for making OuluHealth TietoHack happen. At Tieto, we are planning to arrange similar events during the year”, states Johan Höglund, head of Healthcare & Welfare, Tieto.

Ever hear the one about the physician in an impaired provider program who appears in a Flickr photo with a martini in hand?  How about the one about the physician’s office manager who makes a comment on a patient’s Facebook photo, congratulating the patient on her weight loss and asking if her diabetes has improved?  If only these were jokes.  Unfortunately, these situations actually occurred.

Apple Watch Saves Man's Life

Apple Watch Saves Man's Life | #eHealthPromotion, #web2salute | Scoop.it
A couple of people are giving the Apple Watch credit for saving their lives.

 

According to British tabloid The Sun a man’s life has been saved by his Apple Watch. The paper reports that Dennis Anselmo, a 62-year-old builder, felt “terrible” after taking lunch. Anselmo had a rest, and during that time looked at his Apple AAPL -1.14% Watch, checking his pulse. He discovered that it was well over twice what it should be, registering 210 beats per minute.

Anselmo then called for an ambulance, and at hospital was later told that had he gone home he may well have died. Instead the doctors were able to clear his arterial blockage and he’s now doing well. And Anselmo isn’t the first person to claim that their Apple Watch has saved their life either.

Why is a doctor facing sanctions for voicing his opinions on Twitter?

Many bosses would argue that mixing work with social media is not a good idea. Just ask Christian Solomonides, a hospital consultant who was recently suspended after he admitted posting strongly worded messages on Twitter. The tweets included a description of 90% of A&E admissions as “fucking bullshit”, a complaint that he was “sick of busting balls to ensure that a patient with a broken finger nail (who called an ambulance) is seen within four hours” and a comment that “ADHD is merely a polite term for a child who is just a little shit”. He also criticised a patient for “stinking of fags and demanding calpol on prescription” and called for fines to be imposed on people who “abused” the A&E system

Social media may be the “in” thing for Malaysians nowadays to post instant alerts but not for doctors.

 

Doctors in government service have been told not to discuss their patients’ medical issues on social media such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to prevent breaches in confidentiality.

Neither should they carry out clinical consultations on these platforms where such information could be accessed by other people, said Health Ministry director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

The order came about to minimise the risk of ethical and legal complications and to uphold the integrity of the medical profession, he said in a circular.
