Re: Killer Health App
As you point out, we don't need IoT to tell us that bacon is bad for us (though it tastes soo good), or that Super Sizing everything will make us fat. But feedback frofm FitBit and similar devices can help people better understand the links between things like exercise, sleep, diet and health. It's taking the concept of getting on a scale to the next level. If you never get on the scale, you may not notice small weekly weight gains until your clothes don't fit. If you never see your heart rate, you may not notice until it's too late that it's been getting dangerously high or low.

Re: Killer Health App
SachinEE, that makes great sense.  It will work as a system.  And, as you point out, as hospitals become major users, it will provide a foundation.  That, coupled with Cities' support of population health and Healthy Cities will result in a public/private health network that will utilize the AI.

Re: Killer Health App
"SachinEE, exactly.  That capability, tied with the personal data know from Apps provides another layer of "intelligence" (AI), from which to better plan and provide resources as a city/county.

I think it adds a whole new layer of information that will enable public/private providers to better manage the resources available."

I think Health apps will be common in a couple of years. Then they would be secure, easy to use, and would actually go into a cloud storage that is monitored by the patients parent hospital. We're talking about entire AI systems in hospitals that will be checking out every form of data that comes into its servers.

Re: Killer Health App
"What I take from Jason's article, that I have heard about is the use of IoT for people to gather better information themselves and draw from databases that profile activities that either build or weaken one's health.  I take it that it is a feedback mechanism for individuals, but drawing on databases on health."

There are many adaptive forms of sensors (with proper algorithms stringing them together) that form the miniature control centres and AIs for data collection. They can learn about databases and configure them according to their own uses.

Re: Killer Health App
For mapping we've got many forms of third party cloud analytics providing us with myriad levels of security and analysis. Data mining and data storing can be safely left in the hands of such analytics as long as it stays safe.

mendyk, you are so right!  That takes them into reality and ActII.  If they get that right, they will have real value, otherwise, not.

Re: Killer Health App
I agree that IoT combined with the whole big data/advanced analytics thing can yield better-quality information. But mapping this better information to reality is where the real challenge is. That's a whole different -- and much more difficult -- proposition. Ask anyone in Detroit who longs for the good old days of actually having water service.

Re: Killer Health App
mendyk,  Good healthy skepticsm! 

What I take from Jason's article, that I have heard about is the use of IoT for people to gather better information themselves and draw from databases that profile activities that either build or weaken one's health.  I take it that it is a feedback mechanism for individuals, but drawing on databases on health.

Regarding cities, it guides them, which many are now doing, in developing public policies that minimizes negative impact on health and builds more healthy communities - such as outlined in the Healthy Populations data that has been collected on socio-economic issues, as well as health, for the past 20 years.  This would just allow a connection for individuals to that data.

Sound more promising?

Re: Killer Health App
Joe, I am certrain that one can "investigate" and extract some personal identification and reconstruct.  I think, however, as with what already exists with CDC and other health research registries, that there is a "general" level of comfort that participation in health discovery trends or benchmarks as to one's personal health status relative to the "collected data" still provides value and works.

Other examples of public data that is generally used, with reasonable anonymity include:  census data, labor data, IRS, social security.
