Google's Eric Schmidt Is Giving Away $1 Million To People Who Are Solving Problems Through Technology

Google's Eric Schmidt Is Giving Away $1 Million To People Who Are Solving Problems Through Technology | Health Awareness and Technology | Scoop.it

CherryNetwork's insight:

Definitely like his statement "I think I should put my money where my mouth is," Kudos to Eric Schmidt. Let's see who will follow him... So much work still to be done in our cities worldwide; so many "silos" still exist. Technology is the key to breaking down the silos and actually getting things done especially 3D virtual world technology.


(Disclaimer: I am the "human" rep for several adventurous little "out-of-the box" thinking 3D avatars who connect, communicate , and collaborate within various communities of practice worldwide as never before in the "real life". Plus I have not even left the state.) So I applaud Schmidt indeed!!!

Social media and medical apps: how they can change health communication, education and care

Social media and medical apps: how they can change health communication, education and care | Health Awareness and Technology | Scoop.it

Social media and medical apps for smartphones and tablets are changing health communication, education and care. This change involves physicians and other health care professionals which for their education, training and updating have started to follow public pages and profiles opened by medical journals and professional societies on the online social networking sites (such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+), to access scientific content (videos, images, slides) available on user-generated contents sites (such as SlideShare, Pinterest and YouTube) or on health professional online communities such as Sermo, and to use medical and health apps on their smartphones and tablets. As shown by a number of experiences conducted in US by health institutions such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of Atlanta and hospitals such a the Mayo Clinic, these tools are also transforming the way to make health promotion activities and communication, promote healthy habits and lifestyles, and prevent chronic diseases. Finally this change involves patients which are starting to use medical and health apps on their smartphones and tablets to monitor their diseases, and tools such as Patients Like Me (an online patients' community), Facebook and Twitter to share with others the same disease experience, to learn about the disease and treatments, and to find opinions on physicians, hospitals and medical centers. These new communication tools allow users to move to a kind of collaborative education and updating where news and contents (such as public health recommendations, results of the most recent clinical researches or medical guidelines) may be shared and discussed.
