eHealth is a term being introduced to link advances in information and communication to the well-being of people. Some of the dominant trends are

  • the analysis of information through computer systems, sometimes noted as cognitive computing. In this field information is gathered about the person, living style, surrounding, genetics to find either
    • specific treatment of a person, sometimes entitled personal medicin or
    • means of suggesting alternative practises to lifestyle in order to minimize risks of e.g. diabetes or heart attack.
  • the use of sensors both in analysis, treatment and in the every-day life, e.g.
    • using sensors or devices to monitor the fitness or well-being of a person
    • non-invasive sensors to monitor blood sugar and blood pressure
    • communication between sensors, the devices of the person and the the cloud.

In eHealth we will also take into consideration the handling of information, especially the context- and content-aware handling of such information. As an example, regular measurements of Diabetes might only need to be distributed in a secure way to an archive, while sensors indicating a heart attack might broadcast the message to everyone in the surrounding.

eHealth in Norway

eHealth (eHelse) is a recent term for healthcare practice supported by electronic processes and communication, dating back to at least 1999 [Wikipedia]. Usage of the term varies: some would argue it is interchangeable with health informatics with a broad definition covering electronic/digital processes in health[2] while others use it in the narrower sense of healthcare practice using the Internet.

Projects


Digital Global Health - open issues

A) Digital helse i en utviklingsperspektiv: hva er fokus, og hvordan formidle man informasjon. Sjekk gjerne vår mock-up på digi.futurecompetence.net - her er fokus på hvordan helseinformasjon kan formidles, eller tilpasses. Vi har bl.a. jobbet med Gravid+ appen (iOS og Android), last gjerne ned og bruk 90838066 og A-hus som info for å se hvordan informasjon kan formidles. Akkurat nå jobber vi med vold i svangerskap, sjekk q.trygtsvangerskap.no

B) mentormodeller for digital helse: hvilken erfaring finner vi fra formidling av helseinformasjon? Hva betyr digitalisering for mennesker i helsevesenet ("har du spurt Dr. Google")? Hvordan kan helsemedarbeider nyttiggjøre seg digitale instrumenter og metoder.

C) Digital meets Health: "new ways of health assessment". Mens vi i IT verden snakker om "machine learning, big data, artificial intelligence" er helseverden fortsatt opptatt av sammenligning mellom "med" eller "uten" intervention. Spør du meg, så må vi komme videre, og ser hvordan virkning av informasjon/behandling kan måles.

D) Decision trees for digital health. Hvordan kan vi bruke appene/web-sider til å gi forbrukerne informasjon om temaer. Er "Dr. Google" svaret på alle spørsmål? "Decision trees" er ofte brukt i helseutdannelse. Men lite er gjort digitalt enda. IBM har lansert Watson for medisin, som brukes i både undervisning og til analyse av kreft. - Ut fra min forståelse er Watson ganske unik.

E) Educating Digital Health: "Transforming analog health information into digital health information", apps, Web pages, games

F) Digital health games - educating people through games

G) "Translating is not enough! Practical methods for re-contextualization of medical information". Vi har laget en oversettelse for å kunne overføre informasjon til et annet språk, se: translate.trygtsvangerskap.no En slik oversettelse (og nye bilder i en app) kan gi arbeid for folk i utviklingsland.
