Survey: 31 percent of doctors make Rx decisions from smartphones | Reinventing Health Care IT | Scoop.it

Nearly three-quarters of physicians in the United States are using their smartphones at work,according to a March 2013 survey conducted by ad agency WPP’s Kantar Media. The survey of more than 3,000 physicians representing 21 specialties found that 74 percent said they were using their smartphones for professional purposes. The 2012 study found that about 68 percent of physicians were using their smartphones at work and 64 percent were in 2011.

Could Clinical Decision Support Empower Patients? -- InformationWeek

Could Clinical Decision Support Empower Patients? -- InformationWeek | Reinventing Health Care IT | Scoop.it
It's time the medical establishment heeded the longstanding
advice of informatics pioneer Larry Weed and used "participatory" diagnostic methods, says editorial.

Neil Versel | March 22, 2013
Ideas long espoused by medical informatics pioneer Dr. Lawrence L. Weed but shunned or ignored by the medical establishment might find a perfect fit in a world of "participatory medicine,"suggests a well-known proponent of patients taking an active role in their own care in concert with healthcare professionals.

As he explained this month at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in New Orleans and in a 2011 book he co-authored with son Lincoln, Weed believes in "coupling" medical knowledge to specific patient problems with the aid of computers. Any attempt to practice medicine based on a physician's knowledge alone invites diagnosis error, according to Weed.

That opinion struck a chord with Terry Graedon, co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Participatory Medicine. "Recent research reports have shown that misdiagnosis is an Achilles heel for the current practice of medicine," Graedon wrote in a commentary published this week.

[ A study suggests patients don't like it when doctors use computers to diagnose them. Read Clinical Decision Support A Turnoff For Patients, Says Study. ]

Indeed, the Journal of the American Medical Association's JAMA Internal Medicine just last month published a study showing that physicians missed a surprisingly high number of common diseases in ambulatory care. Although Graedon's article does not mention this study, it does raise similar themes.

Proper diagnosis, Graedon argued -- as Weed, creator of the problem-oriented medical record, has been doing for decades -- starts with a complete problem list. Then, a computer system couples problems to specific medical knowledge.

"If diagnosis begins with standardized data collection, doctors bring clinical judgment to bear at the final stage of diagnosis. Treatment should then be evidence-guided but individualized for the particular patient," Graedon wrote. "We trust that at this point the patient would make his or her preferences known and share in the decision," she added, bringing in the element of patient empowerment, because the Journal of Participatory Medicine is a publication of the Society of Participatory Medicine.

As for Participatory medicine, shared decision making and perhaps co-creating patient experiences of therapies, we have to go a long road before protagosnists of care will find the right click in what to do and what not. Let innovators amongst them get togehter and try, try and try. It worth it! ;-)

Kaiser Family Foundation finds three-quarters of the health cost slowdown is due to the economy. But the other quarter is due to structural changes—and that could save $2 trillion over the next decade.

I'm less optimistic about the future of health care prices than this article is.  Not covered here: If we can't inflate our way out of long-term debt, what exactly is our plan?  Nevertheless, in case health care spending growth is a mystery - it appears to be well-predicted by inflation and GDP.

Access to digital health communications can be an issue for lower income patients

Access to digital health communications can be an issue for lower income patients | Reinventing Health Care IT | Scoop.it

Many lower-income patients say they would like to communicate electronically with their health care providers but are unable to do so because of insufficient technology at the clinics where they receive care, according to a new study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, Medical News Today reports.

 

Study Details

 

For the study, researchers from the University of California-San Francisco surveyed 416 patients at six San Francisco Department of Public Health community clinics that primarily serve uninsured or publically insured individuals.

 

The study participants: 

Were ethnically and racially diverse;Spoke 24 different primary languages; andWere representative of the overall clinic population (Medical News Today, 2/27).

Study Findings

 

The study found that:

78% of the study participants expressed interest in electronic communication with their health care providers (Martinez, "On Central," KPCC, 2/27);60% said they use email;54% said they obtain information from the Internet; and17% said they already use email to communicate informally with their health care providers.

According to the researchers, many safety-net clinics do not offer the patient portals or secure messaging systems necessary to support electronic communication with doctors.
