mHealth Project to Use Smartphones to Tackle Pregnancy Challenges #esante #hcsmeufr

Researchers at the University of Texas are using a $1.2 million federal grant to create mHealth profiles of 1,000 pregnant women in a project aimed at improving care management and reducing pregnancy complications.

 

November 20, 2018 - The University of Texas is launching an mHealth project to track 1,000 pregnant women through the smartphones.

 

Backed by a $1.2 million National Science Foundation Smart and Connected Health grant, researchers will use an mHealth app to create digital profiles of the women participating in the study.

 

Through the remote monitoring project, they hope to gain a better understanding of what pregnant women do each day – and, eventually, learn why American women are more likely to die from childbirth or pregnancy-related causes than other women in the developed world.

Dig Deeper

 

“From their first appointment to six weeks post-partum, we will be able to analyze data to determine the impact of their everyday lives on their medical outcomes, and determine whether we see any digital markers of significant events such as labor,” Kelly Gaither, director of health analytics at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), an associate professor of women’s health at UT’s Dell Medical School’s Department of Women’s Health and the grant’s principal investigator, said in a news release provided by the university.

 

“We can examine the number of steps they take in a day, changes in speech patterns, unusual sleep patterns — even whether these women have an active social structure,” she added.

 

The program is one of several launched over the past few years to not only study the lifestyles of women during pregnancy, but improve care management and coordination and boost the chances of a healthy birth and outcomes for both the mother and the baby.

 

In 2017, a study conducted by the Wyoming Department of Public Health using the WYhealth Due Date Plus app from Wildflower Health found that app users were 76 percent more likely to schedule prenatal visits at least six months before delivery than those not using an app. More importantly, pregnant women using the app were only 25 percent as likely to deliver a low-birth-weight baby as those women who didn’t use an app.

 

More recently, researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute created an app designed to help obstetricians and caregivers identify depression in pregnant women and new mothers.

 

“Perinatal depression is a major problem,” Bengisu Tulu, an associate professor of business at WPI’s Foisie Business School and the app’s creator, said in a press release issued by WPI. “By using Lifeline4Moms during an office visit with a patient, obstetric caregivers can map out a treatment plan and help the patient make an appointment with a counselor, for example, to increase the likelihood that the patient will actually follow up and get the mental health care she needs.”

 

In Austin, researchers will be modifying a digital health app originally developed at Harvard University to collect physical, social and behavioral data, ranging from daily activity to smartphone use. That data will then be integrated with each participant’s electronic health record.

 

They also plan to use the university’s new supercomputer, called Frontera, to apply AI technology to pregnancy challenges, such as unplanned C-sections.

 

“We know how to bring advanced computing to bear on this issue, including using data-driven science, mathematical models and emerging computational techniques such as more advanced forms of machine learning,” Gaither said."

Substantial gaps exist today between what the marketplace is producing in terms of apps and what is needed to make care better. Specific approaches can be taken at the FDA and at federal agencies that support research and encourage redirection. The marketplace needs to produce applications that will be helpful to patients and health care organizations, along with the ability to identify them. Apps have enormous potential benefits, but these benefits will not be realized unless these issues are addressed.

One survey suggests that only one in three physicians recommends wellness apps to their patients — but 58 percent of consumers who use smartphones have downloaded at least one health app, and 41 percent have downloaded more than five.

FDA Clears First App-Only Product for Detecting Atrial Fibrillation  | M-HEALTH  By PHARMAGEEK | Scoop.it

FibriCheck, a Belgian firm, won FDA clearance for its smartphone application that is capable of spotting signs of atrial fibrillation, simply by using the phone’s camera. The user places a finger over the camera lens on the back of the phone and initiates the app to do its thing. The app utilizes photoplethysmography to optically watch for changes of the vessels within the finger as blood pumps through with each beat. A regular rhythm within normal speeds indicates a healthy heart, while missed beats or an irregularly irregular rhythm may signal the presence of an underlying condition.

mHealth platforms are helping healthcare providers with Quick Access to Decision Support Resources  #hcsmeufr #esante #digitalhealth

mHealth platforms are helping healthcare providers with Quick Access to Decision Support Resources  #hcsmeufr #esante #digitalhealth | M-HEALTH  By PHARMAGEEK | Scoop.it

Healthcare providers who access clinical decision support through mHealth platforms are finding a world of information at their fingertips – and they could be saving lives.

 

Digital technologies are changing the way medical information is gathered and exchanged.  Physicians of all ages and medical subspecialties from across the globe are utilizing tools to discuss potential diagnoses and obtain second opinions.

 

That’s the takeaway from researchers at the Scripps Research Translational Institute who took a closer look at online crowdsourced consult platforms.

 

Their conclusion is that these platforms, which include social media networks like SERMO, Medscape and HealthTap, are giving providers quick access to information that’s helping them reduce serious, costly and potentially deadly medical errors.

 

The study, focusing on an analysis of more than 37,000 active users on the MedScape Consult network between 2015 and 2017, appears in a recent issue of NPJ Digital Medicine.

 

The research points to the value of a mobile health resource for clinical decision support, giving providers a real-time portal for physician-to-physician engagement. Billed as a source for “the second to hundredth opinion in medicine,” these portals allow providers to gather best practices and apply them quickly, reducing the chances of a clinical error.

 

The study also points to the changing nature of clinical decision support.The study noted that providers can’t necessarily rely on informal face-to-face consults with colleagues – commonly known as curbside consults – because they’re “frequently inaccurate and incomplete.” Yet they can’t just call up a nearby specialist at a moment’s notice.

 

The study found that : "At a time when we’re turning to artificial intelligence to help improve diagnostic accuracy, there’s still plenty of room for tapping into human intelligence via such medical consulting platforms, Artificial intelligence has been advocated as the definitive pathway for reducing misdiagnosis, But the study's findings suggest the potential for collective human intelligence, which is algorithm-free and performed rapidly on a voluntary basis, to emerge as a competitive or complementary strategy."

Well how surprising! Collective human intelligence still works :)

 

For us, its not surprising. As I been posting in my articles, speaking at my talks and offering my $0.02 in my insights,  for all the talk of AI and Deep Learning, I feel technology's best use in healthcare is in automation of processes and improving communication and collaboration.  And such studies show that we have lots of gain by building better tools to help clinicians communicate and collaborate better. Someday , AI "may" replace human intelligence, but not today and not anytime soon.
