#health2stat consumer driven health and patient generated data – the world is changing – slowly

http://2.healthca.mp/1roZDdz# Q&A
Responsibility is being forced onto the patient. Medical professionals are still concerned about patient generated data and the reliability of that data.

My view is this: is one measure taken in an office setting more accurate and reliable than months of data collected by the patient.

I argue that even if the patient is not expert they will still be consistent in their method and the trend of many readings is ultimately more valuable than a single reading taken in what might be a stressful situation for the patient.

How do you ensure patients are trained to use Equipment reliably??? Have you heard of this thing called YouTube ???

#health2stat usability in electronic health records – the myth of too many clicks.

http://2.healthca.mp/1roZDdz

Usability of the EHR

Bennett Lauber: usability is the new black.
We are finally getting traction in EHR usability.
Nurses will not adopt your application if usability sucks.

It is not the number of clicks it is the number of decisions you are asked to make.

Is it a click or a decision? Will cancel or ok do what I want????
You are making the user think about the interface and not the activity they are doing.

Sometimes there are too many clicks….

#health2stat MoleMapper

mole mapper

Dermatologist visits are expensive and may not be covered by insurance.
Self exams are tedious and inconsistent.

MoleMapper is a free ios app to track name and measure moles.

Google maps for your skin.

The clever trick is to use a coin as a measure. Coins don’t change in diameter.

1. Mobile Clinical Trials: You Thought Mobile Healthcare Was Challenging?

Matt Kirchoff from the FDA. Medical trials are broken. Trials are organized around sites, not patients.

Bring the clinical trial to the patient. Mhealth, telemedicine and sensors come together to gather data for clinical trials.

Going mobile for clinical trials could cut costs by 50%. But There are concerns in a regulated environment: from HiPaa to dice controls and medical records controls.

The technology is just part of the process. The focus must be on the patient.

HealtHCa.mp/Boston #HCBOS is coming up on 11/3. Join Me and Grab a ticket: http://2.healthca.mp/1Cr5BQf

HealthCa.mp/Boston is coming up quickly. Will you be there? You can grab a ticket for this 1 day high energy event at the Microsoft New England Research and DEvelopment Center in Cambridge, MA on Monday November 3rd. Follow this link and grab a ticket: http://2.healthca.mp/1uQ3KWd

I am looking forward to dropping in on the event. I have to be in Dublin, Ireland on Tuesday for The Web Summit and my flight goes through Boston. So I have been able to arrange to drop in to HealthCa.mp/Boston from about 11am onwards. I am really excited to take part and have to thank David Harlow and Janice McCullum for their hard work in organizing this HealthCa.mp.

If you have not taken part in a HealthCa.mp this is your chance. It is an event where YOU get to decide the agenda. We will start the day with some 4×4 firestarter talks. That is 4 slides in 4 minutes. If you are doing something interesting in Healthcare grab a sponsor ticket and use the 4×4 to get your message out there. After the firestarter talks we will set the agenda for the day. You get to suggest sessions and lead discussions through out the day.

In the many HealthCamps I have taken part in I have found that the people that don’t consider themselves an expert often lead the best sessions. That seems to be because they ask questions about something that is of great interest to them. HealthCa.mp is about those discussions and discoveries that emerge from people coming at an issue from different view points and different life experiences.

So grab a ticket and come along on Monday November 3rd. It is going to be a great day!
