Wearable Technology And Digital Healthcare Strategies Should Shift Focus To Chronic Medical Illness

Wearable Technology And Digital Healthcare Strategies Should Shift Focus To Chronic Medical Illness | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

As we marvel at the gadgets that companies such as Nike, Fitbit, Jawbone and Apple have recently produced and brought to market--gadgets that can record our heart rate, calories expended, and steps taken—one can only think of how this technology could likely be used on a greater scale to help those who truly need it the most: people with chronic medical illnesses such as emphysema, diabetes, or congestive heart failure.

ET Russell's insight:

I particular liked the acknowledgement that there is a need for integrated and coordinated healthcare.

 'Help caregivers work more as a team: 79% of physicians and close to 50% of consumers believe using mobile devices can help physicians better coordinate care.'

 

Everyone one has a role to play from the patient, caregiver, physician community and support groups. So how can we harness this concept and put it into action?

Emma Sands's curator insight, December 4, 2014 2:55 AM

The current target for wearables is the same as for gyms and sports clubs -  this leads to stats as commented in the article: "Less than half of people who own a wearable use it on a daily basis". Currently wearables are being treated as "add-on" to a healthy lifestyle, but form no real part of it. We need them to become "add-ins" (to coin a phrase), an integral part of health management within the home - the active-patient paradigm.

David Greene's curator insight, December 5, 2014 12:33 PM

With the advent of all this wonderful technology we can't lose sight of initiating the care without assessing the patient's desire to participate...  Becoming partners in care seems to be the most effective way to help the chronically ill...

Linds's curator insight, December 30, 2014 7:25 PM

Those of us with chronic illnesses already have many medical gadgets, including portable heart rate monitors and EKGs, and simple blood pressure monitors.

PwC polled both providers and consumers to gauge their respective interests in digital health technologies. The chart illustrates that greater preference among consumers for five of the six technologies assessed, with the exception of patients doing urinalysis tests at home with a device on the phone, favorite by more doctors than patients (47% vs. 42%). Consumers prefer, in greater numbers,

White Paper - Patient Engagement Technology: Delivering Real Value to Hospitals and a Real Difference to Patients

White Paper - Patient Engagement Technology: Delivering Real Value to Hospitals and a Real Difference to Patients | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it
Lincor Solutions is the leading provider of digital point of care service delivery. Our secure, robust and specifically engineered technology improves patient outcomes, increases efficiencies and reduces costs by delivering clinical applications, administrative functionality, communications, patient education and entertainment services, direct to the bedside.
ET Russell's insight:

Executive Summary:

Across every industry, electronic engagement tools help enhance the customer experience, create efficiency and deliver business value. The same is true in healthcare, where hospitals can improve clinical quality, patient satisfaction and care efficiency through digital patient engagement.

However, even in the U.S. — widely regarded as leaders in the adoption of healthcare computing — only about one-fifth of all hospitals have adopted electronic patient engagement technology, with many countries at a far lower level of penetration than this. i

The U.S. has seen more research in this area than any other country, and so this document uses much of this large body of evidence, to provide an evidence-based analysis of the total value creation — or return on investment — through cost avoidance, revenue generation and quality improvement, for hospitals that implement interactive patient engagement technology capable of delivering education, health information, communication tools and entertainment content, all at the bedside.

mHealth Solutions for the challenge of Oral Cancer in India

mHealth Solutions for the challenge of Oral Cancer in India | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

Proposed solution for the Challenge: Oral Cancer in India

Oral cancer is one of the few life-threatening conditions in dentistry. With approximately 650,000 new cases annually, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the eighth most common cancer worldwide.

Proposed solution: Implementing an mHealth solution for Prevention of Risk Factors

 

ET Russell's insight:

This project proposes the development of an mHealth solution for the prevention of risk factors for Oral Cancer.

 

The main idea is to:

- provide a mechanism for the users to have knowledge about oral hygiene and risk factors

- design strategies that could work for them in order to have desirable behaviours and reduce the risks.

- develop a mobile app using a behavior-change gamification framework with leading boards, badges, health knowledge quizzes, competitions, challenges, formation of teams, rewards, and others.

Is mHealth For Everyone? - | Power Your Practice | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

By most accounts, the booming mHealth market is a blessing for patients wanting an easier way to access medical information. However, it may surprise you that not all patient groups are taking advantage of this convenient source of health knowledge.

ET Russell's insight:

Healthcare research group Manhattan Research's study suggests smartphones have become, for many, an indispensable source of healthcare information. Based on responses from more than 8,600 U.S. adults, the research group found that 95 million Americans are currently using their smartphones for health information – up 27% from a year ago.

 

a list of the top ten patient conditions most likely to use mobile health solutions:

1. Cystic fibrosis
2. Growth hormone deficiency
3. Acne
4. ADD/ADHD
5. Hepatitis C
6. Migraine
7. Crohn’s disease
8. Chronic kidney disease
9. Generalized anxiety disorder
10. Bipolar disorder

ET Russell's insight:

This article may be a little bit old since it was originally published. But the message I believe is still so very relevant.

 

Whether we are in the health arena or other. There are never ending opportunities to promote health messages and develop the health literacy of our communities.

 

It is about leveraging of events, circumstances, people stories (maybe a celebrity being admitted to your hospital), looking beyond the incident and leveraging off it to reach to the community with a health message.

Improving the Patient Experience | Google Glass [VIDEO] Appreciating a Doctor's Human Touch | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

There are lots of people who think Google Glass is the answer to many healthcare problems: emergency response, surgical work flow, patient interaction. The jury is still out on its value because the device is too new and not in wide enough circulation to be put to the test of reality.

 

Physician and writer Abraham Verghese uses Google Glass to explain how much a doctor can learn from a simple handshake and examination of a patient's pulse and skin.

ET Russell's insight:

Take an 18 minute break and watch at least Video 2. It would have to be one of the best talks I've heard this year on how one single act can improve the patient experience. This video is funny, clever, moving and very reassuring about the medical profession.
