    • How E-Health Affects the Way Consumers Make Decisions and Manage Their Health - Results from multiple empirical studies Centre for Health InformaticsAnnie Lau, PhDCentre for Health InformaticsAustralian Institute of Health InnovationUniversity of New South WaleseHealth Conference at CeBIT, May 2012
    • About Centre for Health InformaticsUniversity of New South Wales (UNSW)• Australia’s largest academic health informatics research group, led by Prof. Enrico Coiera• To deliver high quality, safe, efficient and affordable health care through the intelligent use of information and communication technologies• Four research areas: Patient Safety Informatics, Modelling and Simulation, Translational Bioinformatics, Consumer Informatics
    • Objectives1. Impact of Consumer E-Health – How E-Health Affects the Way Consumers Make Decisions and Manage Their Health – Topics: IVF, influenza vaccination, physical and emotional wellbeing, breast cancer survivorship, asthma, STI screening, cardiovascular risks2. Designs of Consumer E-Health – Ways to design E-Health to improve consumers’ engagement with health services – Platforms: web-based, mobile phone, social media3. Science of Consumer E-Health: cognitive biases, online social influence, E-Health engagement, safety of E-Health
    • Outline • About Healthy me and its impact • Case study: YouTube and safety concerns for consumers • Implications on Consumer E-Health Designs
    • What is Healthy.me? • Personally controlled health management system • Our focus is to support patients on totality of services needed to manage their health, not just provide a record • Portal of online services offered by health service providers to engage with patients
    • Studies on Healthy.me (2010-2012)1. In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment2. Uptake of influenza vaccination3. Physical and emotional wellbeing4. Breast cancer survivorship after treatment
    • Study 1 > In-vitro fertilization (IVF)Supporting women undergoing IVF• Design: Feasibility study• Participants: Women undergoing IVF treatment (Agonist Long Down Regulation)• Duration: 8 weeks; interviewed weekly• Location: Urban Australia• Participants: 17 recruited, 14 completedLau AYS, Parker A, Early J, Sacks G, Anvari F, Coiera E. Comparative usage of a web-basedpersonally controlled health management system and normal support: A case study in IVF.electronic Journal of Health Informatics (eJHI). 2012; (in press). 9
    • Study 2 > Influenza vaccineUptake of influenza vaccine • Design: Randomised controlled trial (Healthy.me vs. waitlist) • Participants: UNSW staff and students • Duration: Winter season 2010 • Location: UNSW Health Service • Participants: 855 recruited, 604 followed-up (71% retention) Lau AYS, Sintchenko V, Crimmins J, Magrabi F, Gallego B, Coiera E. Protocol for a randomised controlled trial examining the impact of a web-based personal health management system on the uptake of influenza vaccination rates. BMC Health Services Research. 2012; (in press).
    • Study 3 > WellbeingUNSW online health community • Design: Online prospective cohort study • Participants: >1500 UNSW staff and students • Duration: 2010-2011 • Location: UNSW • Physical and emotional wellbeing – Men health screening – Women health screening – Emotional wellbeing programs
    • Study 4 > Breast cancerBreast cancer survivorship • Design: Feasibility study • Participants: around 50 patients with early stage breast cancer • Duration: 2011-2012 • Location: Liverpool and Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centres
    • Outline • About Healthy me and its impact • Case study: YouTube and safety concerns for consumers • Implications on Consumer E-Health Designs
    • Study 5 > YouTube and safety concernsSocial media • Design: 456 abstracts on “quality criteria” related to YouTube • Sources: PubMed, ISI Web of Knowledge, PsychINFO and Scopus • Period: November 2011 • Findings: 5 areas of safety concerns related to YouTube Lau AYS, Gabarron E, Fernandez-Luque L, Armayones M. Social Media in Health – What are the Safety Concerns for Health Consumers? Health Information Management Journal 2012. (in press)
    • Study 5> YouTube and safety concernsExamples of Safety Concerns on1. Harmful health material targeted at consumers • e.g. inappropriate marketing of tobacco, or direct-to-consumer drug advertising2. Public display of unhealthy behaviour • e.g. people displaying self-injury behaviours or hurting others3. Tainted public health messages • e.g. rise of negative voices against immunisation campaigns Lau AYS, Gabarron E, Fernandez-Luque L, Armayones M. Social Media in Health – What are the Safety Concerns for Health Consumers? Health Information Management Journal 2012. (in press)
    • Study 5 > YouTube and safety concernsExamples of Safety Concerns on4. Psychological impact from accessing inappropriate, offensive or biased social media content - e.g. children accessing videos on surgical procedures5. Using social media to distort policy and research funding agendas - e.g. misdirected research funding in Canada on Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) Lau AYS, Gabarron E, Fernandez-Luque L, Armayones M. Social Media in Health – What are the Safety Concerns for Health Consumers? Health Information Management Journal 2012. (in press)
    • Implications on Consumer E-Health Designs• To our knowledge, first study that shows PCHMS can significantly increase uptake of preventative health measures• “Science” of Consumer E-Health Systems – uptake, benefits, and cost effectiveness of these investments• “Crowd influence” and social media in health – undue social influences and safety concerns for consumers and clinicians
    • Summary• Goal: how we can use E-Health and online social technologies safely and effectively to support patients in their health journeys with clinicians and health services• Healthy.me undergoing continuous development• Collaborations are warmly welcome
