Tweeting our way to heart health

Tweeting our way to heart health | Hematologist - Oncologist | Scoop.it

Real-time social phenomenon, Twitter, can be a powerful tool to help prevent heart disease and improve health practices, according to a group of researchers affiliated with the University of Sydney.

Their study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, surveying 15 international health-focused Twitter accounts, nine professional organisations and six medical journals, were selected for analysis of their Twitter growth, reach, and content.

Four Reasons Doctors Worry About Social Media

Four Reasons Doctors Worry About Social Media | Hematologist - Oncologist | 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.

Brian Shields's curator insight, February 9, 2013 12:07 PM

Very exciting to see the leaders in tech partner with the leaders in cancer care.  I believe the next revolution in medicine will be driven by technology and the front line health care and research institutes.


Aggregating and utilizing data intelligently will help clinicians and reseachers better provide care to the community.  The lines between research trials and the standards of care may gradually blur as new technology driven treatment strategies emerge.

Laurent FLOURET's curator insight, August 20, 2014 5:32 AM

"Sloan-Kettering is also training Watson on 1,500 real-world lung cancer cases, helping it to decipher physician notes and learn from the hospital’s expertise in treating cancer."

PLOS Medicine: Scaling Up mHealth: Where Is the Evidence?

PLOS Medicine: Scaling Up mHealth: Where Is the Evidence? | Hematologist - Oncologist | Scoop.it
Despite hundreds of mHealth pilot studies, there has been insufficient programmatic evidence to inform implementation and scale-up of mHealth.We discuss what constitutes appropriate research evidence to inform scale up.Potential innovative research designs such as multi-factorial strategies, randomized controlled trials, and data farming may provide this evidence base.We make a number of recommendations about evidence, interoperability, and the role of governments, private enterprise, and researchers in relation to the scale up of mHealth.

The Digital Health ecosystem is growing exponentially. Almost every day a new device, app or site is introduced to the world with the intention of improving people’s lives, and while some may not make it others will go on to succeed. Below I’ve put together a list of digital health products and categorized them by function. It’s by no means a complete list but will hopefully help others looking for digital health products in a specific area
