Less privacy but more effective treatment - trade-offs of personalized health movement

Less privacy but more effective treatment - trade-offs of personalized health movement | ICT for Health | Scoop.it
Infographic calls attention to growth of personalized health trends to improve outcomes and cut healthcare costs and the patient data security issue posed by them.

 

There’s a huge amount of interest in advancing personalized medicine to offer patients more effective treatment based on their genetic makeups that could also significantly reduce healthcare costs. There is also an increasing prevalence of mobile devices to help people track and report details of their personal health with the goal of supporting remote monitoring. But to what extent will privacy concerns challenge the growth of these areas?

 

People are confiding more personal information than ever through digital health channels. Telemedicine for behavioral health is improving access in areas underserved by psychologists and providing an attractive alternative for some people who might not want to visit an office.

Pere Florensa's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:57 AM

El informe pone en relieve que en función del crecimiento de la e-medicina, crece la posbilidad de tener problemas de seguridad con la privacidad de nuestros datos. Es evidente que uno de los retos a los que habrá que enfrentarse en el futuro, pero la seguridad en la nube cada dia dispone de mas actores en el mercado que posiblemente mejoren esta seguridad.

When code can kill or cure

When code can kill or cure | ICT for Health | Scoop.it

SMART pumps deliver drugs perfectly dosed for individual patients. Easy-to-use defibrillators can bring heart-attack victims back from the brink of death. Pacemakers and artificial hearts keep people alive by ensuring that blood is pumped smoothly around their bodies. Medical devices are a wonder of the modern age.

 

As these devices have become more capable, however, they have also become more complex. More than half the medical devices sold in America (the world’s largest health-care market) rely on software, and often lots of it. The software in a pacemaker may require over 80,000 lines of code, a drug-infusion pump 170,000 lines and an MRI (magnetic-resonance imaging) scanner more than 7m lines.
