Weekend reading: 2nd WIN Conference papers

click to enlargePapers from last month’s WIN Conference (West Midlands Health Informatics Network) held at the University of Warwick have been released. These include keynotes and guest talks, oral presentations, posters and panels. There is a overflowing cup of research here and your interest will determine what papers are outstanding to you. For this Editor, what stood out were:

  • The telehealth study on monitoring cancer treatments on chemo and biological therapies using the Bosch Health Buddy; incomplete because Bosch not only terminated support for Health Buddy before the end of the study but also did not provide complete information prior to that (pages 16-17).
  • A survey of telehealth standards in North America, Australasia and Europe by Malcolm Fisk on increased flexibility, less top-down and service integration of care (healthcare-social care). (pages 18-19)
  • Using a combination of a camera and the Florence (Flo) text messaging service to enable those with mild cognitive impairment/dementia to assist their self-management of memory (page 54).
