Patientkunskap Best Practice

Råd för utveckling av eHälsotjänster

Här kommer en rapport som är tänkt att inspirera, vägleda och stödja vid utveckling av e-hälsotjänster.

Det övergripande syftet bakom denna rapport är att belysa förutsättningarna för en lyckad utformning av innovativa eHälsotjänster för både patienter och vårdgivare.

Rapporten skrevs för projektet Patientkunskap, (VINNOVA-projekt inom utmaningsdriven innovation).

Projektet syftar att ge ökad kunskap till patienten genom att ta in patientens egna data direkt från forskningen, för att möjliggöra personifierad prevention och behandling.

Biohacking myself

I now feel a bit upgraded and even more hopeful about the future. I took part in Sweden’s first “RFID Injection party”, organized by the biohacking group BioNyfiken here in Stockholm.
We were 11 members that inserted RFID chips into our hands, expecting many more to follow.
We are all curious and excited about new technology such as biohacking. We want to expand our capabilities.

Personally, I want to experiment and expose myself to this as I see so  many potential eHealth possibilities.

I am also  certain that us early adopters in this currently rather nerdy field can contribute to finding new, innovative uses for these biohacking technologies, uses that the tech platform developers never thought of themselves.

The chips comes from the company Dangerous Things, together with these comforting words:

WARNING This kit definitely contains dangerous things. The xNT transponder device has not been tested or certified by any regulatory agency for implantation or use inside the human body. Use of this device is strictly at your own risk.”

But we hired very experienced professionals for the injection job, so everything went smoothly: the Stockholm based company with another cool name: Stay Calm Bodymodification. You can probably guess who they are in the group picture!

Me before the injection: sterilizing and marking the location
A bit relieved after the injection, there was remarkably little pain.

The market for eHealth mobile apps and digital medical gadgets is growing very fast now and the big smartphone companies and venture capitalists are starting to take serious interest, as they see enormous business possibilites in the global personal health sector.

This is an extended version of my trendspotting talk during my session “Engaged Epatients” at the Digital Health Days conference in Stockholm. In its second year, this kind of conference is also a sign of the growing interest for digital health services.
