IMT's Senior Content Editor provides a quick trip around the Digital Health Landscape in this weekly wrap-up with her Digital Health Rounds.
As a nurse-who’s-an-editor-for-a-health-related-publication, I couldn’t help but use some healthcare lingo in naming this weekly column of mine.
Just as we “round” on patients in healthcare to check on current status, and write up our findings in “progress notes” so I round on various sectors in our Digital Health Landscape—providing short notes and links to a variety of stories that caught my eye each week. This certainly isn’t meant to be comprehensive, but just a quick trip across the landscape to help top off our week with you.
This week, I was struck again by what we see all the time—that progress often creates new challenges for which we'll need even more solutions. You'll see what I mean when you get to Personal Genomics below.
So kick back and relax with me—feel free to skip around, explore further, or linger on something of interest. As with all of our content, we invite you to jump into the conversation and comment at will!
We’re so happy that you’re part of our growing global digital health community, and look forward to Connecting Great Minds™ and making a difference in the world together.
They’re all good questions, and some I’ve asked as well: Big Data Analytics and an Evolving Standard of Care?
I loved this post from our own Jenn Lonzer, where she highlights Nationwide Children’s—my old stomping ground in my NICU/PICU days, and where one of my closest friends still works: Neuromuscular Monitoring Is Child’s Play
Health 2.0/Social Media in Healthcare
Fantastic Slideshare presentation by Marie Ennis-O’Conner (@JBBC) about the pitfalls of social media use for healthcare professionals:
Health and Wellness Apps
Love the “mobile moments”! Apps bring health care into 'mobile moments'
This CIO asks a great question and makes some great points:
My favorite line: “…but data really belongs to the patients, not the hospitals.” Informatics Expert on Interoperability: “We’re in the Dark Ages”
Of course it can: Can Mobile Health Streamline the Clinical Trial Workflow?
Sometimes progress loosens the lid on the next can of worms: Precision Medicine, Personal Genomics Need Industry Standards
At first glance, you may wonder what this has to do with health. But for us writers? Everything. How Do You Find Time to Write?
Sensors and Wearables
Love the power of kids helping kids—thanks for the tweet Maneesh Juneja!
Editor’s Pick from the nuviun ranks:
Yesterday, our beloved Mona Karaoui, one of the original nuviunites, moved on to focus on some great new opportunities in her life. We're so happy for her, and grateful for the rock she has been from the very beginning. Mona was the original content editor, and has been such a wonderful friend and mentor for me through my time as a contributor and while transitioning into my current role. We will keep her close and contributing—providing key insights from the consumer perspective. Fortunately, as she said in her sweet post yesterday...in the world of digital, friends can always be friends—even if they live half-a-world away: A Digital Breakup.
Thanks for joining me—please stop in again next Friday for Digital Health Rounds.
