A Pop Up chocolate store, where you pledge on facebook to pay

This pop-up chocolate store let you pay with the promise of a good deed toward a person you care for. The chocolate boxes had a range of different ‘price’ options so that people could pick a box according to the good deed they were willing to do. 
Instead of a cash register the store uses iPads where people can log in to Facebook and post their promises to the profiles of both the giver and receiver of the generous deed.

Doctors Love The iPhone And iPad Even Though Many Electronic Records Systems Don’t

Doctors Love The iPhone And iPad Even Though Many Electronic Records Systems Don’t | Innovative Retail | Scoop.it

The iPhone is the most popular device among medical professionals, followed by the iPad and then Android smartphones. That’s one of the key findings in a new study that examines the relationship between electronic health records (EHR) systems, mobile technology, and how doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers use both mobile devices and EHR systems.


One of the biggest points of the survey, however, is that the vast majority of U.S. healthcare providers do not use a mobile device to access electronic records. In fact only about in one in twenty (6%) use a mobile device to access electronic records or prescribe medications using an electronic prescribing system. That’s despite the fact that almost three-quarters (72%) of providers report using mobile technology as part of their practice.

 

What do doctors want an iPhone or iPad EHR system to do? Just the basics. 93% of doctors and other providers want to be able to review patient records. 87% want to be able to update those records and 82% want the ability to document patient encounters beyond or apart from updating a patient’s chart. 86% want to be able to prescribe electronically from a mobile device. 67% want to be able to use mobile technology for out-of-office activities, which CITEworld’s Chris Nerney wryly suggests that this may mean using a device to improve a doctor’s golf handicap.


As far as non-EHR but practice-related activities, healthcare providers are pretty much in line with other professionals. 55% use them for communications (email, phone, and texting) and 14% use them as a laptop replacement. Only 20% reported using devices for on-the-go research – though it’s worth noting that other studies have shown great use of reference apps and sites, particularly among nurses.


Lastly, if you’re curious about the top devices used in healthcare and their popularity, here’s the list.


iPhone – 60%
iPad – 45%
Android (phone) – 38%
BlackBerry – 14%
Windows tablet – 14%
Windows Phone – 5%
Android (tablet) – 3%
Other – 3%

Six questions to ask when searching for online health information

Six questions to ask when searching for online health information | Innovative Retail | Scoop.it

Nearly 60% of U.S. adults look for health information online, according to the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project in Washington. And one-quarter of U.S. adults have read someone else’s writing about their medical issues in a blog or on a website.

 

More than 95 million Americans visited websites related to health, fitness and nutrition in June, according to Nielsen. That’s more than two out of five people who were active online that month. WebMD Health Network led the way with 24.6 million unique U.S. users, followed by Everyday Health, Yahoo! Health sites, Livestrong.com and About.com Health, Nielsen found.

 

Here are six questions to ask yourself when searching for online health information:

 

1. Are you going to multiple sites and not just stopping at one commercial site, such as the drug manufacturer’s website, for your information?

 

2. Do you winnow your printed material down to a manageable load before you present it to your doctor?

 

3. Are you working with a doctor or clinical team that’s open to discussing what you find online?

 

4. Have you browsed the websites of national nonprofit organizations dedicated to your condition?

 

5. Have you overlooked patients’ experience close to home in favor of online groups?

 

6. Are you using the buddy system?

When surfing the net always ask yourself "Who is paying for this website, and what is their agenda?"

Look for heathcare sites that are HON-certified (look for the HON logo). "Health on the Net" has 8 patient-protection principles that a site must adhere to before they are certified. (Read about HON on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_On_the_Net_Foundation)

The Perception Gap: What Customers Want And What Executives Think They Want

The Perception Gap: What Customers Want And What Executives Think They Want | Innovative Retail | Scoop.it

Pivot released a revealing research - Social Consumers and Social Marketers: The Perception Gap Report [February 2012] documenting the increasing gap between marketer and customers.

 

Brian Solis refers to this as the Great Divide or the  “The Perception Gap,” the distance between what customers want in social media and what executives think they want.

In collaboration with Barnickel Design, this Infographic visualizes the extent of the perception gap between social consumers and social businesses.

 

Highlights:

76% of marketers feel they know what their customers want yet only 34% have asked customers.

83% of consumers seek deals, but only 53% of businesses think that’s what customers really want.

45% of marketers feel that rewards programs are important to customers and 70% of social consumers thought otherwise.

59% and 58% of social customers wish to engage businesses for buying insights and customers service respectively; on the contrary only 37% of marketers believe that these services are in demand by their customers.

There’s agreement between customers and marketers on product feedback.

55% of consumers and 53% of marketers would like to collaborate on improving products and experiences.

Helping new computer users search for health information online

Helping new computer users search for health information online | Innovative Retail | Scoop.it

During my spring 2012 internship, I took on a variety of projects at NN/LM PSR. One of these projects included making modifications to the existing 'Helping Older Adults Search for Health Information Online: A Toolkit for Trainers' (http://nihseniorhealth.gov/toolkit/toolkit.html) to create a toolkit targeting adults, especially those with low literacy skills.

 

Medical information is often dense, complex, and filled with jargon. Readers of all literacy levels benefit from straightforward, plain language and easy-to-read health information. But this course will be focused mostly on helping individuals with below basic and basic literacy levels seek out health information online. The ultimate goal of the course is to help individuals to locate accurate and authoritative health information which will lead them to make better decisions regarding their own health, resulting in changes in behavior and their whole well-being.

 

The end result will be an Internet training program to help adults with low literacy find answers to their health questions. Just like its predecessor, it will be a free, downloadable Toolkit for Trainers that accomplishes three valuable goals; teach computer skills to beginners, introduce adults to high quality, easy-to-understand online health information, and help them build Internet search and evaluation skills at the same time.

Interactive patient education reduces readmissions, increases satisfaction

Interactive patient education reduces readmissions, increases satisfaction | Innovative Retail | Scoop.it

Hospitals are increasingly challenged to engage patients in healthcare management and aid them in making informed decisions to improve their overall health and wellness. Federal regulations and meaningful use requirements urge hospitals to use health information technology and other initiatives to increase patient engagement, understanding and compliance. Hospitals that engage patients often see better outcomes, reduced readmissions and enhanced patient and staff satisfaction.

 

Some hospitals are implementing creative techniques to meet current expectations for patient-centric healthcare, such as on-demand digitized video education technology and interactive patient education systems. These interactive services allow hospitals to customize patient education and information sharing for a variety of medical needs.

We need more doctors online

We need more doctors online | Innovative Retail | Scoop.it

having been online, blogging and doing other social media, it has become increasingly clear to me that I need to be there—and that more doctors need to be there with me.

 

The main reason? Because that’s where the patients are.

 

We need more doctors and other health professionals writing good content, but getting online doesn’t necessarily mean writing. It could mean finding good websites and sharing them. It could mean commenting when we see something that we agree with—or don’t. It could mean engaging in one of the many conversations going on in social media about health.

 

It seems like most of the conversation about doctors being online involves concern about ethics and professionalism. I admit that I’ve seen some stuff on Facebook and Twitter that has made me cringe, and clearly it’s not a good idea to give specific medical advice online (nothing can replace a good history and physical examination). But this is all manageable.

 

Dr. Katherine Chretien did a study of Tweets sent by doctors and found that only 3% might be considered unprofessional, and less than one percent had any private patient information. Overall, these are small numbers. As my doctor-blogger colleague Wendy Sue Swanson says, we are way worse on elevators than we are online. It’s easy enough to come up with guidelines and education to help doctors navigate the online space ethically, professionally and safely. Another doctor-blogger friend of mine, Bryan Vartabedian, who writes a great blog called 33 Charts, has some really good ideas about this, including a recent post about how he handles online questions from patients.

Mobile Loyalty Within the Store: An In-Depth Look at ShopKick | Connected by RetailNet Group | Innovative Retail | Scoop.it

Yesterday, Macy’s extended its partnership with the mobile rewards service, ShopKick, and rolled out the program to the entire network of stores nationwide. Now when customers walk into any Macy’s, they can open up the ShopKick app on an iPhone or Android phone and complete tasks to earn “Kicks”, a point system that customers can redeem for retail gift cards or other rewards. So, yesterday I went to a nearby Macy’s and gave the app a quick test run to reacquaint myself with the service. Here’s how it works:
