Enjoyed The Business of Blockchain by William Mougayar.
There are two keys for me within the healthcare business blockchain. Data trust, data control and data sharing.
Gives me great hope that one day I might actually be able to create, store and share my personal health information, without having to enter any data manually.
And really like the concept of crytotech and cryptocurrency.
Encouraged with my Apple watch. While miles walked, sleep, heart rate are helpful, I’m looking forward to these devices to expand their capability, enabling me to track more physiological variables, and tying them to my health records.
And, unfortunately, my record is still fragmented, and it’s difficult to make sense of the impact of the different chunks of information!
Excited this market is growing - Global self-monitoring health technologies market – moved from $1.1b in ‘13 to $3.2b in ’14. (BCC Research) And it’s expected to grow to $18.8b in ‘19. This should
drive more innovation and more data to play with!
I've been looking forward learning more about the health version of the Apple PassBook, Health. So far so good. Was excited to hear about the real-time health monitoring from the Mayo Clinic, and health data integration with Epic Systems.
Assuming the next unveil will be the iWatch, and see the integration with Health.
It's still unclear to me if Health is going to replace my HealthVault PHR. HeatlhVault's been good, but the integration is complicated.
SAMI and Simband look very promising! Apple Health has the edge for me. And with the Mayo health monitoring solution and the potential EHR (Epic for now) integration, that pushes it even farther ahead.
