Katherine Kim, San Francisco State University, iN Touch Principal Investigator
In early October, I attended San Francisco’s Health Innovation Week (http://healthinnovationweek.com/) – an annual, week-long “immersion in the world of health and technology innovation” event that combines forums on HIPAA (privacy and security), regional extension centers/health information exchange, electronic health records, HealthCampSFBay and Health 2.0.
As I immersed myself in the HIPAA Forum, I considered how much we still needed to know about ODLs and how to handle them (these questions were keeping me up at night). I realized that we ask our iN Touch participants to record ODLs so that they are more mindful of their actions, able to analyze their decisions, and can improve the collaboration with their care team. Those same prompts would be helpful when it came to the questions swirling in my mind so I came up with these ODLs as I travelled through the sessions.
- Privacy ODLs: Podls (poodles) Oct 4, 2010, 1:30 pm
DHHS Office for Civil Rights is holding consumer “listening” sessions to hear their concerns about HIPAA privacy. I wonder how much concern consumers have about privacy of personal health records. Wish I could attend.
- Regulation ODLs: Rodls (Roodles) Oct 5, 2010, 6:45 am
FDA may regulate mobile devices and health decision making software as medical devices. Will that include programs like iN Touch?
- Mobile ODLs: Modls (moodles) Oct 5, 2010, 11:00 am
DHHS Office of Minority Health says mobile applications are widely used (PDAs, text messaging) by minorities, an effective approach internationally.
- Security ODLs: Scodls (pronounced scoodles) Oct 5, 2010, 2:15 pm
Security for social media for healthcare. Texting, email, social networking, health information exchange. Consumers are way ahead of the healthcare industry. We need to catch up and still be secure.
- Safety ODLs: Safodls (safeoodles) Oct 5, 2010, 7:39 pm
In the news - cell phones may cause brain damage? Good thing we are using iPod Touch, it’s not held near the head. Will patients or their parents/guardians be concerned about this for our project?
- To Do List ODLs: ToDodls (Todoodles)
Write a blog about the Project HealthDesign ODLs and ask “Track one of these ODLs for a few days and send me your findings.”
Maybe we should start using these terms more throughout our project because some of the names are sure catchy. Feel free to start using of these ODLs and send us your findings.
