Coming Next: Mandated Mobile and Digital Medical Devices for Chronic Conditions | e-health | Scoop.it

“Over the past five years, we’ve more than doubled the adoption of Electronic Health Records for physicians, so that means they can track what’s going on better and make fewer mistakes.”


“New technology startup companies are coming up with new inventions to monitor patient health, prevent infections. There’s innovation going on all across the country.”



What’s next for the Affordable Care Act?

In the United Kingdom, NHS England, in an effort to improve quality of care and control health care costs…  

 

“Everyone with a long-term condition or disability must have a digital personalised care plan accessible online or via a mobile phone app by 2015.”


Innovation is happening. Mandates to use these innovations are coming. Innovations are happening not only across the United States, but throughout the world. Mandates to use these innovations will spread beyond England to the United States and other government-supported health care systems.

 

Without question, health IT and mobile health applications play a significant role in delivering quality health care while controlling costs of health care.

Social Media and Patient Advocacy

These are the slides from my talk at the 4th Annual Putting Patients First Conference in Mumbai.

 

If god were to manifest the world using technology, he would first create something like social media. Conceptually provide technology with the ability to understand the thoughts of a population


SocMed leaves behind the old model of 1-to-1 communication – “talking to someone over the phone”  Enables one-to-many communication (via blogs or microblogging) or many-to-many communication (discussion forums, social walls). Now anyone can setup an online community site/portal to represent a small or big offline community.

 

Further, anyone can setup an online site related to a treatment, a disease, a doctor, a drug , a concept or anything and see it grow into a popular site which in effect is simply the manifestation of a community which exists/ed but which no one ever knew of.

Thanks so much for sharing your slides - i am looking forward to reading them. 

PatientView's curator insight, November 28, 2013 8:19 AM

We have figures on the scale of soical media intreaction by patient advocates. In countries where the impact of the finanical crisis is at its worst, patient advocates have turned to social media to interact with one another and raise awareness  of the predicaments of their country's healthcare system to place pressure on government when undertaking reforms.

Great info! I think SocMed  will boost the thought of population and will effect change in local communities.
