Anatonme – a hand held device for improving patient-doctor communications

From a recent article in Healthcare Global.

Studies suggest that 30-50 percent of patients are likely to give up treatments early.  Microsoft Research has developed an innovative, hand-held medical device called Anatonme to help patients understand their issue and complete their treatment plan more often.

We’ve been doing research and development into private, controlled social networking to reinforce private communications between doctor and patient. It’s gratifying to see Microsoft Research doing work in this area.

Private social networking for doctors and patients provides highly effective secure data sharing between doctors and patients. It allows patient-mediated input of data before visits to the office, making the clinical data more accurate and complete and boosting the trust between doctor/healthcare worker and patient.

A private social network has a controlled 1 to N (doctor to patients) topology and physiological and emotional context, unlike Facebook that has a distracting social graph and entertainment context.

A private social network for doctors and patients also provides powerful information exchange and search:

  1. Capture critical events on a timeline (for example blood pressure, dizziness etc) that enables the doctor to respond in a timely fashion.
  2. Reconciles differences between what the doctor ordered and what the patient did.
  3. Granular access control for sharing of data between doctor, patient and referrals.
