Health researchers see unique opportunity in self-tracker data

Health researchers see unique opportunity in self-tracker data | NMSU Health Education | Scoop.it

As the number of self-tracking health and fitness tools available to consumers continues to climb, a persistent question has been whether the data they collect might be useful to health researchers. Along with that: Are people who self-track comfortable sharing their data with researchers?

 

A new, must-read report from San Diego’s California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, explores these and other questions.

 

Based on a survey with hundreds of self-trackers, a majority — 57 percent — said one critical assurance they would need before agreeing to make their self-tracked, personal health data available to researchers was that their privacy would be protected. More than 90 percent also said it was important that their data remained anonymous. Respondents said they’d be more comfortable sharing data if they knew it was only going to be used for “public good” research.

 

One open-ended survey that the report’s researchers posed to self-trackers found that 13 percent of respondents specifically mentioned an aversion to commercial or profit-making use of their data, according to the report. One respondent wrote: “It depends who gets it. Research using these data will be instrumental in the future of personal predictive services, but also for that reason are likely to be exploited by marketers and the politically short-sighted. Thus I would like transparency for who has access to my data.”

 

Among the almost 100 health researchers interviewed for the report, 46 percent said that they had already used self-tracking data in their research previously. Some 23 percent reported that they had already worked with digital health companies that offer apps or devices to consumers to track their health.

 

Overall, the researchers interviewed for the report were “generally enthusiastic” about the prospect of using self-tracking data in the future — 89 percent agreed or strongly agreed that such data would prove useful to their research efforts. Almost all of those researchers surveyed said that kind of data could answer questions that other data could not.

Rx for patient engagement: Provider-prescribed apps

Rx for patient engagement: Provider-prescribed apps | NMSU Health Education | Scoop.it

While much is made of the mHealth app market for consumers, a growing segment is being tailored for clinicians. Doctors are becoming as mobile as their patients, and they need the tools to access medical information as well.

 

Vendors are already moving in that direction, too. Take Orca Health, for instance, which has developed a platform of iOS 7 apps designed to help clinicians educate patients about certain conditions or medical procedures. The Patient Education for Healthcare Professionals platform, which currently features 10 apps, allows physicians to choose and edit medical content, capture photos and videos and securely send that information to the patient — in essence, enabling the physician to prescribe an app.

 

"Patient education is a monster, monster problem," said Matt Berry, Orca Health's founder and CEO, in an interview with mHealth News.

 

Berry said the Orca Health apps (the company also has a line of iBooks through a partnership with Harvard Medical School) enable clinicians to personalize patient education, rather than relying on generic handouts. The physician sends the patient an e-mail with a link to a HIPAA-compliant web portal, where the patient can create a secure account and view that information. Subsequent prescriptions — videos, photos, links to information, histories of medical encounters and resolutions — can be added to the patient profile by the physician.

 

Apps currently available in the Apple App Store are Spine Decide, Knee Decide, Heart Decide, Eye Decide, Shoulder Decide, Foot Decide, Hand Decide, Dental Decide and Ear, Nose and Throat Decide (a Kids dental app is available for the Apple iPad).

 

Company officials said physicians using the Orca Health platform have improved patient retention rates by as much as 15 percent.

 

"Physicians are asking for these tools," Berry said. "They want to be able to prescribe that content for their patients."

nrip's curator insight, December 31, 2013 4:33 AM

Physicians are asking more every week for mobile apps which they can use for their practice as well as recommend to patients. In the last quarter alone, I received over 400 requests from Physicians for certain types of Apps for Android and Windows Phones. . The fragmented mobile ecosystem does present challenges for vendors, but look at the opportunity.
