Cancer treatment and management is ripe for personalized medicine: each person's cancer is different genetically and would likely to respond to different treatment. But in order to personalize treatment options for patients, the healthcare provider needs to crunch through large amount of data -- from personal genomics to know pathways on how drugs interact with genes. This task is ideally suited for computers, which can analyze a lot of data quickly in search of an optimal combination of treatment.
That is exactly what IBM Research has proposed to do in Italy. Love to see stories like this whether advances in computing have a direct impact in saving lives!

The use of testosterone drugs has grown so fast that University of Utah’s Health Care HealthFeed estimated that testosterone drug worldwide sales could reach $5 billion in 2017.
Concerning health hazards of Viagra® commonly prescribed for erectile dysfunction, a JAMA study confirmed that the use of Sildenafil (Viagra®) could cause a higher risk of melanoma, a type of skin cancer, among other documented serious health hazards.

eClinicalWorks is a very popular EHR system for small physician offices. It is known for storing and managing data in the cloud. It has recently announced a $10MM investment in helping its customers building interoperability among their systems based on the DIRECT project. It is very interesting to see an EHR provider investing in interoperability. Indeed, EHR vendors used to avoid interoperability so that they can lock in their customers. Yet, the federal EHR meaningful use requirements have gradually forced EHRs to support more and more interoperability. It stands to reason that the ones who move fast in this area could be at an advantage: After all, closedness is no longer an effective vendor-lock in strategy, and openness stands to gain from better user experience, easier referral, and less wasted staff time. It is great to see that interoperability becoming a competitive edge in EHR.
The DIRECT project is a federal initiative to use secure email as a mechanism to pass documents between healthcare providers.

The Moore Foundation has recently awarded a grant to Johns Hopkins University Medical Center to pilot the use of iPads for ICU checklists. The leader of the program is Dr. Peter J. Pronovost, who is a pioneer of using checklists in hospitals. Dr. Pronovost recently published an excellent book on this subject "Safe Patients Smart Hospitals", and is the hero in Dr. Atul Gawande's best seller "The Checklist Manifesto".
Now, the checklist, by definition, is a simple list of items that can fit into a single page of paper. Why do we need iPad for something as simple as that? It appears that the iPad will be used to tie together different pieces of technologies the ICU uses -- examples I can think of include access to EHRs, remote access to monitoring devices, decision support, paging to doctors and RRTs, locator of critical equipments etc. All of those are simple checklist items, but the iPad could make them all work together and save precious time in responding to patient events.

It is all over the news in the past week that FDA has approved the first "digital pill" -- a sensor that can be attached to a pill and enter your digestive system when you take the pill. The approval is only for placebo pills for now so that the company can conduct clinical studies. So, what is the purpose of such sensor on pills? It is not to treat or even diagnosis any medication conditions. Instead, it is to verify that the patient has indeed taken the pill -- so that people who are not taking their pills can receive "reminders" to do so. That has certainly highlighted the big problem of medication compliance and the length people are willing to go in order to make a dent on that problem. However, I have always thought that adding a sensor to the pill with no other purpose than bugging patient is a little extreme. What do you think? Patients would certainly not pay more to take those pills if they have a choice between these and normal pills.

Kaiser Health News has a great article on the medicare penalty for hospitals that high readmission rates. Over 2000 hospitals in the nation (that is nearly 50% of all hospitals) will be penalized for $280MM in 2013. The penalty list includes some of the most well known hospitals in the nation. You can see the full list here.
Apparently, they are not doing enough to engage patients they discharge. There are several proven ways for hospitals to reduce readmission rates, but almost all of those approaches are human intensive (e.g., requiring nurses to call patients on a daily basis), and hence very expensive to implement. I believe that this area is ripe for technology disruption. After all, technology has replaced many human intensive call centers in other industries!

We all know that physicians love the iPad. It provides an an easy way to interact with computer systems and with patients. But does iPad really improve productivity? Well, the latest research at Duke Cancer center said yes. The iPads at Duke is primarily used for patients in the waiting room to answer questionnaires about their health / treatment while they are waiting. It provides more accurate and comprehensive information for the physician to review when they spend time with the patient.

It is hard to believe that there is an academic journal is that completely dedicated to Health Games research. It really shows the high level of interest people have in this area. The underlying idea is that, if people can spend hours and hours performing mundane chores in games like Famville, why not have them perform other mundane chores that are actually good for their health. The trick is turn those mundane chores into some kind of addictive game, and that is one of the key focuses of "health games".
So far, no one has figured out a winning formula to build addictive "health games". But many experiments are underway to test different models of game mechanics and health promotion theories. That is basis for a vibrant academic research field. For more, please check out the editor-in-chief Bill Ferguson's summary article: Games for Wellness—Impacting the Lives of Employees and the Profits of Employers.

Janssen Healthcare has recently launched a medication reminder program / application called Care4Today. It tries to solve a very difficult problem of medication compliance for consumers / patients. The program uses secure messaging via smartphone applications to remind the user to take their medications. The program has some unique features such as using "code words" for reminders. And because the reminders are delivered via apps (as opposed to standard SMS), they can be encrypted.
But, the chief challenge in this space is to help the user keep track of medications in the first place. Many users do not know what medications they are supposed to take. And by asking patients to manually enter / maintain / update their prescription information as they change, it creates a big hurdle for people to use such programs.

New York Times ran a great article on how an integrated healthcare system in Alaska was able to dramatically reduce cost and improve outcome by building a system that incentivizes everyone to work together as teams. One of the key enablers of such collaboration is an integrated Health IT system that they call "data mall". It is not your typical patient record system, but rather an analytics driven quality measurement system. To quote from the article:
