Beyond tech: The human side of remote monitoring and health call centers
By Karen R. Thomas
What comes to mind when you think about remote patient monitoring? The first thing most people think of are the various technologies that make this transfer of health data possible. They envision the remote monitoring devices that collect data such as weight, pulse, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, blood glucose readings and so on, and transmit that data back to a technology hub. What isn't often discussed, however, is the human element that is the real power behind this type of telehealth.

Physicians working sick despite health risk to patients
Healio
Many physicians and advanced practice clinicians work while sick regardless of the health risks they pose to patients, according to a survey published in JAMA Pediatrics. "This descriptive survey investigates the frequency with which and reasons why attending physicians and advanced practice clinicians at a single hospital provide clinical care while sick," Julia E. Szymczak, PhD, of the division of infectious diseases at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and colleagues wrote.

How EHR technology will evolve to support healthcare reform
EHRIntelligence.com
The design of early EHR technology was driven primarily by the desire to recreate paper charts in digital form. Just as with paper charts, initial EHR systems were meant only to capture information from the clinical episode — the idea of sharing that information across the care continuum wasn't on anyone's radar.

Survey: Telemedicine use on the rise
By Scott E. Rupp
The latest telehealth report — one of many in a recent string — suggests the market is finally maturing. "Telehealth Index: 2015 Physician Survey" found strong support exists for video-based telemedicine, more so than for telephone or email communications. The report comes at a time when telehealth providers are making a strong push to qualify the video-based doctor's visit as comparable to a trip to the doctor's office, clinic or emergency room.
