mHealth Term - Wireless Monitoring

Definition:
The use of mobile devices and sensors to track and transmit patient health data to a clinician, caregiver or call center.

Wireless monitoring circumvents some of the issues associated with older remote monitoring technology such as unwieldy equipment, fixed locations, and a lack of integration of different sensors.

Check out the new @ Report by  @SusannahFox -

Pew_May 2011.jpg

The Social Life of Health Information, 2011

"The internet has changed people's relationships with information. Our data consistently show that doctors, nurses, and other health professionals continue to be the first choice for most people with health concerns, but online resources, including advice from peers, are a significant source of health information in the U.S.

As broadband and mobile access spreads, more people have the ability - and increasingly, the habit - of sharing what they are doing or thinking. In health care this translates to people tracking their workout routines, posting reviews of their medical treatments, and raising awareness about certain health conditions."

@TechnicalJones: Tech Term - Spam Filter

| No Comments

TechTerm.png
Spam Filter

Definition:
Is a software program that sorts incoming mail in order to identify and pull out junk mail, also known as spam. A spam filter can be installed on an Internet mail server, on a private network server, or on a personal computer.

Spam is not only bothersome but can be used for spreading malicious code like viruses and Trojans, and for perpetuating phishing scams.

For these reasons and more, a spam filter is a great way to help protect your computer or network and cut out junk mail.

A spam filter works by comparing parameters in incoming mail to lists of configurable rules.

For example, a spam filter can be set to check the subject heading of incoming mail for terms associated with pharmaceuticals and other common spam products.

The sender field might also be filtered for ranges of IP address associated with spammers or marketers.

@TechnicalJones: EHR and the Environment

Interesting question and article.



Quote from the article:


"But what about the environmental impact? That was the question asked by researchers at Kaiser Permanente, a giant health-care group, which covers 8.7 million people in nine states and the District of Columbia.

Kaiser used its own system -- 454 clinics and 36 hospitals, using electronic health records -- as its laboratory. The answer, published Wednesday in the journal Health Affairs, is that the potential environmental benefit is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as much as 1.7 million tons a year. That's the pollution equivalent of taking more than 300,000 cars off America's roads."
