The future of medicine is in the hands of the individual – and CareKit is helping us get there.

The ownership of health data is shifting to the hands of the patient and opening the door to a new generation of technologies that will transform the face of medicine. Eventually, each individual will not only own their data, but it will be secured in a personal cloud or system, with the owner granting rights for others to access. Now that’s a flip. ― Eric Topol, The Patient Will See You Now: The Future of Medicine is in Your Hands With the release of our mobile app, The Diary™ App 2.0 on iOS, this is now a reality. Using Apple’s […]

Outsourcing Chronic Care Management

To outsource or manage in-office? What is in the best interest of practice and patient? The most expensive segment of Medicare, accounting for over 93% of spending, is directed at patients with multiple chronic conditions; people with one or more chronic conditions will number at over 171 million by 2030, according to a Rand Corporation report. Yet health care services are not delivered in a coordinated manner, for most. Often, patients’ health care providers are not a part of integrated delivery networks (IDNs), and often are not highly experienced in coordinated efforts. And even those who are working in a […]

Managing Multiple Chronic Health Conditions

Navigating Complex Health Care Approximately one in four Americans is struggling to manage multiple chronic health conditions, and the number is continuing to increase with an aging boomer population. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) defines chronic conditions as those that last a year or more and require ongoing medical attention and/or limit activities of daily living. HHS.gov lists examples including arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Behavioral health conditions are also increasingly common – these include substance abuse and addiction, mental illnesses, dementia, and other cognitive impairments. In spite of the fact that so many are managing multiple chronic […]

Smart Choices For a Healthy Heart

When asked what disease they fear most, most Americans would say cancer. But in fact, cancer deaths are on the steady decline. The American Cancer Society’s recent report states that deaths from cancer have dropped nearly 23% since in 21 years. Released Thursday January 7, 2016 At the present time, cancer is the second leading cause of death nationally. So what’s first? Heart disease–it’s the leading cause of death for both men and women. Heart disease is a general term that means that the heart is not working normally. It describes a range of conditions; these include blood vessel diseases such as coronary artery […]

Why Blood Pressure Matters: how to do something about it right now

With the highly busy lives we all lead, it’s easy to ignore health problems that don’t loudly announce their presence. Hypertension is a sobering example. High blood pressure not only impacts one’s personal life, but it is also associated with significant economic impact, costing Americans an estimated $46 billion annually in healthcare services, medications, and missed days of work. The physical impact from uncontrolled hypertension ranges from artery damage, heart attack, and stroke, to brain and kidney damage, vision loss, nerve damage, and sexual dysfunction. If that weren’t enough, it can also contribute to bone loss and osteoporosis, obstructive sleep […]

Health Apps Closing The Symptom Loop

Last month I wrote a blog pointing to this New York Times article, The Healing Power of Your Own Medical Records where a patient called Steven Keating likely saved his own life by helping his medical team find a tennis ball sized tumor in his brain — a tumor they otherwise would not have been aware of until something serious went wrong with Steven’s health.   Ubiquitous cloud computing, ubiquitous devices in our hands, and ubiquitous sensors automatically reading our body’s outputs have completely changed the reality of healthcare delivery and monitoring. Personalized medicine is now well underway, and there is a lot that […]

The Hidden Secrets Behind Your Symptoms

Earlier this year the New York Times published the article The Healing Power of Your Own Medical Records. In it, a patient called Steven Keating monitored what years earlier had been described as a “slight abnormality” in a scan of his brain. Years later, when Steven began to notice some unusual smell-related symptoms, he insisted that his doctors perform an MRI – resulting in the discovery of a tennis ball sized tumor in his brain. Immediate surgery was successful, and Steven can likely owe his life these days to his proactivity as a patient in tracking his symptoms.   Our own System […]

Why “Bank Grade Security” is not enough

When it comes to your medical information, there are some critical security practices that can be used, and surprisingly these advanced protocols to keep your information safe are not practiced by everyone! With the rise in Health IT software adopting “cloud computing” to store, send and receive patient data over the internet, healthcare institutions and websites designed for healthcare consumers increasingly claim they use “Bank Grade Security”. What does that mean anyway? Well, mostly it’s intended to satisfy potential customers’ concerns  that their private health data is safe with them. The fact is “Bank Grade Security” even among banks themselves is disturbingly low. […]
