Do Doctors, Patients Take mHealth Seriously?

Do Doctors, Patients Take mHealth Seriously? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

A survey conducted by Nielsen on behalf of the Council of Accountable Physician Practices (CAPP) finds that, at most, 52 percent of primary care physicians have recommended that their patients use an mHealth app or device to track their health. Yet only 4 percent to 5 percent of consumers surveyed say their PCP has made such a recommendation

 

This means that either physicians are making the effort but their patients are ignoring the advice, or patients are looking for that guidance but it isn’t coming from their doctors.

 

 

the survey reached a familiar conclusion in how each generation perceives mHealth and telehealth.

 

It found that consumers rarely use video visits (only 5 percent total), but those age 34 and younger are twice as likely to use and want them than those age 65 and older.

 

The same discrepancy was seen in the use of text reminders for medication and health measurements and online scheduling tools.

Do Patients Rely on Mobile Healthcare Apps More Than Their Doctors?

Do Patients Rely on Mobile Healthcare Apps More Than Their Doctors? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

In the not-so-distant past, patients had only one source for healthcare expertise — their personal physicians. They relied on doctors to monitor their symptoms, track changes in their health, manage their diseases and personalize their care. But in recent years, mobile technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) has changed all that.Now, armed with wearables and mobile healthcare apps, individuals can monitor their own health data and get continuous guidance and information from the devices they carry with them every day.But the availability of digital health tools is a double-edged sword for the medical industry. Patients are becoming more engaged in their own wellness and taking greater responsibility for staying healthy, which leads to better outcomes. On the other hand, as they rely more on these tools, are they relying less on the robust insights and expertise of medical professionals?

To deal with chronic disease, patients will need better mobile health apps | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Of all the potential calamities facing humanity, the one that few people can argue about is that of the global population that is growing in numbers, age, size and incidence of chronic disease. In Australia, 3.6 million people have diabetes or pre-diabetes. In the US, that number was 29.1 million in 2012, or 9.3% of the population. The number of people with pre-diabetes in 2012 however was a staggering 86 million.

Diabetes is the 6th leading cause of death in Australia and the 7th in the US.

How mHealth tech is changing diabetes treatment

How mHealth tech is changing diabetes treatment | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Today's mobile apps are helping diabetics aggregate blood sugar and nutritional data from multiple platforms and devices and logging data into central portals accessible anywhere, according to Steve Robinson, general manager of the Cloud Platform Services Division for IBM.

The apps and snap-on smartphone monitoring devices are letting physicians integrate biometric data from wearables into patient data and analyze patient data at fast speed, Robinson writes at InformationWeek. The benefits are just as extensive as the functionality being developed, he says

The gains include everything from simplifying records and improving doctor-patient conversations to gaining a holistic view of a diabetic's health. Doctors can "crunch and analyze patient data at rapid speeds to help identify patterns and predict future health and treatment needs," he writes.

"Mobile apps can help diabetes sufferers get ahead of their symptoms and live healthier, more carefree lives," Robinson says.

Diabetes tools have ranged from providing smartphone coaching that is helping diabetics living in low to modest socioeconomic communities manage their disease and improving their health, to a wearable, automated bionic pancreas for continuous glucose monitor and a software algorithm, according to a study at the New England Journal of Medicine.

In addition, mobile monitoring of diabetic employees can save more than $3,000 a year in healthcare costs, half of the average annual medical insurance cost for workers diagnosed with diabetes. 

Today's tools and cloud-based capabilities are reducing those costs while also driving innovation for disease management, Robinson says.

"Using cloud services, combined with the ease and convenience of mobile, new methods of managing this disease are being brought to patients around the world," he writes.

Otroligt - det här är verkligen något som kan göra skillnad i människors liv. Och inte bara för den som är sjuk utan för alla människor.

Arielle Gold's curator insight, November 24, 2014 2:10 PM

This article discusses one of the many smart phone applications that has been created in order to help alleviate the symptoms of Schizophrenia, and other unpredictable mental disorders (Alba, 2014). The primary application that is discussed is called "Priori" (Alba, 2014). Priori is designed to monitor a patient's tone when he is speaking, along with the periods of time that he isn't speaking (Alba, 2014). It focuses on the speed and tone of his talking, and any rapid changes in topic that may occur (Alba, 2014). Any offsets that Priori records in the patient's regular way of communicating may help him to better predict an impending Schizophrenic episode. These sort of episodes can not only be dangerous to ones-self, but potentially to those around the individual experiencing the episode (Myers & Myers, 2008). Symptoms may include something as basic as laughing or crying at inappropriate times, or potentially as severe as immobility and even hallucinations (Myers & Myers, 2008). Schizophrenia is considered to be one of the most severe examples of "psychosis," or "a broad term for a disorder marked by irrationality, distorted perceptions, and lost contact with reality (Myers & Myers, 2008, p. 562)," because it may not necessarily be consistent, and can be onset at any given time (Alba, 2014). With that being said, although Priori is still in it's developmental phase, this application has the potential to warn patients and their doctors of an impending episode, so that they can better prepare, and ideally make the episode minimally damaging to the patient, and those around him/her (Alba, 2014).

 

This article is very well-written, and appears to be reliable because of several different sources cited throughout, including Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, a psychiatrist in chief at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center (Alba, 2014). Any scientific information that was included about Schizophrenia or other mental disorders seemed to be accurate because it was given to the author by physicians, and even an actual mental disorder patient, named Bryan Timlin (Alba, 2014). If I were to recommend any changes in order to help the author verify the accuracy of this article, I would suggest the inclusion of a full reference page that will give any contributors all of the credit that they deserve, while giving readers the tools to do some research on their own.

 

The following is the full-text citation of the textbook that I discussed in my review of this article, along with a citation for the article itself:

MHealth apps access hidden mobile data to improve patient care

MHealth apps access hidden mobile data to improve patient care | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

When mHealth apps access more than just patient-entered data in a mobile device, the mix could provide deeper, more powerful clinical data analytics.

 

Mobile apps such as Daily Carb, Glucose Buddy, SkinKeeper, Pregnancy Tracker and Fitbit have been popular in the consumer market. These apps are making a difference in patient health, empowering the self-tracking of important health-specific, dietary and fitness data.

 

Healthcare professionals also are seeing the potential that mHealth apps have in helping patients improve outcomes. Currently apps are designed to specifically capture a limited number of data elements. Patients enter the data points manually, or they are captured through a sensory device such as a glucose level reader. But how far can data mining, social media and patient engagement push the clinical relationship?

 

An emerging generation of mHealth apps is using more than just patient-entered data to monitor health. For example, Ginger.io collects and analyzes hidden data such as messaging logs onboard a mobile device to help better understand patients. The company's website explains that the concept is to mine iOS or Android data to monitor user behavior and identify changes to the user's health -- information that can be pushed to a healthcare provider who might need to step in.

 

There is clearly a significant amount of data analysis and calculation happening in the background of such an app. Enabling these processes requires review of the data to identify any discrepancies. In conjunction with that, the app prompts users with a survey to capture specific data points.

 

Having sensory data and other insights -- such as mood and mental state -- can provide a wealth of information for data scientists.

This approach may prove to be a much more comprehensive one.

 

By monitoring active and passive patient data on a daily basis, both patients and providers can discover significant changes in behaviors and create much closer relationships. Furthermore, it's likely that social media sites could end up becoming a valid data source for monitoring an individual's activities and moods.

Evaluation of the accuracy of smartphone medical calculation apps

Evaluation of the accuracy of smartphone medical calculation apps | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Mobile phones with operating systems and capable of running applications (smartphones) are increasingly being used in clinical settings. Medical calculating applications are popular mhealth apps for smartphones. These include, for example, apps that calculate the severity or likelihood of disease-based clinical scoring systems, such as determining the severity of liver disease, the likelihood of having a pulmonary embolism, and risk stratification in acute coronary syndrome. However, the accuracy of these apps has not been assessed.

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of smartphone-based medical calculation apps.


CONCLUSIONS:

The results suggest that most medical calculating apps provide accurate and reliable results. The free apps that were 100% accurate and contained the most functions desired by internists were CliniCalc, Calculate by QxMD, and Medscape. When using medical calculating apps, the answers will likely be accurate; however, it is important to be careful when calculating MELD scores or Child-Pugh scores on some apps. Despite the few errors found, greater scrutiny is warranted to ensure full accuracy of smartphone medical calculator apps.

A drastic change is expected in the age structure of the European population. While in 2010 the more numerous age-group was people in their 40s, in 2060 it is predicted that it will be the group of these over 60 years old...

 

A series of problems (arise): from how can healthcare be provided to everybody, to how to pay the pensions of an increasingly old population, which also has less active people who contribute to taxes.

Many experts agree that new technologies, and mobile technologies in particular, can become a key factor in the solution of these new challenges. In fact, we have already manifold mobile solutions which can be useful in helping make ageing healthier. But they are not enough.

- At the moment, Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is (allowing) digital monitoring of vital signs, easing the control of patients with chronic diseases and patient communication with health professionals.

 

- new technologies, and mobile technologies and mHealth in particular, are ready. Now it is time for governments and the people responsible for health and social welfare to put into motion the right strategies, taking into account all the factors that are part of elderly people's lives.

 

- key to the future does not lie on classifying people, but on personalising medicine and patient attention. And to this end, mobile solutions can play a major role. Technology is ready.
