      • Rapidly shifting role of the patient within the traditional Ambulatory and In-Patient delivery of care model
      • There is increased patient demand for:
        • Easier access by patients to healthcare professionals
        • Easier access to Online Healthcare information by the patient
        • Online access by patients to “Alternative” care modalities
        • Online “chat” communication with healthcare professionals
        • Contain costs and improve the quality of patient care experience
        • Bridging the “information gap” between the healthcare provider and patient
      • Innovations in social media, collaborative technologies, tele-medicine, tele-monitoring, and mobile technologies provide healthcare, professionals/organizations and patients with the ability to reach out to each other seeking cost effective healthcare services.
    • 7.
      • Employment based coverage is on the decline
      • Government issued healthcare coverage is increasing
      • Numbers of uninsured and self-insured are on the rise
      Bottom Line: Provider based delivery of care is embracing the concept of bidirectional healthcare communications and real time consumerism. Current State
    • 8.
      • e -Patients are:
        • E quipped with iPhone, iPad, Internet, WiFi, laptop, etc.
        • E nabled with instant access to information 24x7x365
        • E mpowered to be actively involved in care régimes
        • E ngaged, with all the above, to effect change
      • 33% of US population uses social media to collect health related information.
      • 58% of individuals surveyed “self diagnose” based on the information they have collected.
      • As a result, healthcare social media is becoming one of the most important topics with both the ambulatory and in-patient healthcare sectors of our day.
      The e-Patient & Social Media
    • 9. Social Media vs Social Networking
      • Social Media:
      • Uses the same foundations as social networks
      • Strives for a one to many approach to communication
      • Tries to add an interactive dialog to the communication
      • Think: hospital tweeting about national recognition
      • Think: Surgery center blogging about a new system or service that differentiate them from the competition
      • Interactivity comes from re-tweeting, commenting, providing a linkback, etc.
      Be aware of the difference between Social Media and Social Networking. Both use the same technologies but for slightly different ends. Examples of share buttons common to many social web pages. Image from
    • 10. Social Media vs Social Networking
      • Social Networking:
      • Uses the same foundations as social media
      • Creates a community of users who can share information about a specific topic
      • Allows you to find the experts with the knowledge to answer your questions
      • Lets you follow interesting people or colleagues to gain more knowledge real time
      • Think: provides a blog where you can share you health challenges
      • Think: Doctor finding a specialist with the knowledge to help treat a specific condition
      Be aware of the difference between Social Media and Social Networking. Both use the same technologies but for slightly different ends.

      Providers Using “Push” Technology
    • 12.
      • Leverage a reduced number of specialists (e.g. regional lab pathologist expertise)
      • Potential of “virtual visit” to reduce MOB utilization.
      • Increased “touch point” capability with managed care
      • Increased panel size of Home Health Staff (Dr., RN, MSW)
      • Improved monitoring of targeted “at risk” patient populations
      • Accurate and timely distribution of medical information to patients
      TeleHealth & Remote Patient Monitoring
    • 13.
      • Study the security regulations to determine adequate levels of security for each organization.  
      • Establish a security committee and appoint an information security officer. 
      • Identify existing security measures within the organization, including administrative, physical, and technical safeguards. 
      • Conduct a thorough risk analysis. 
      • Develop and implement remediation plans. 
      • Adequately train the workforce. 
      • Periodically review these compliance activities.  
      HIPAA as it Relates to the Provider
    • 14.
      • The healthcare organizations the patient interfaces with (hospital and Physician Practice alike) recognize the importance of the HIPAA security rulings, the patient should be aware of:
        • Contractual obligations with business associates of the treating organizations
        • Current practices are infallible, what should you know about them
        • Documentation is a secondary priority, be diligent, it is your PHI
        • Impermissible use or disclosure of protected health information
        • Lack of adequate safeguards to protect PHI
        • Awareness of Refusal or failure to provide access to or a copy of records to individuals
        • Disclosure of more data than are minimally necessary to satisfy requests for information
        • Failure to have the individual’s valid authorization for a disclosure that requires one
