Transcript of Web 2.0 and Healtcare Providers

Web 2.0 E- Excited Epi Info & Web 2.0 N= Need to Know S=Stance or Suggestion for Moving Forward
•Although the thinking routines have been developed for K-12 classrooms, I would like to borrow some of them and test them. •TIME I need to know about…. •After completing this course and getting a better understanding of Web 2.0 I would like to try to develop a collaborative group for Spanish Speaker users of Epi Info. Moreover, I should conduct a comprehensive literature search to identify possible research opportunities. Finally, I would like to find a mentor who can guide me and provide me from best practices about this topic. •Web 2.0 tools have been included in a strategic plan to improve public health in Latin America by the Pan American Health Organization (Pan American Health Organization, 2011) •Medicine 2.0 is a growing discipline. Although there are no official standards about the use of Web 2.0. tools in healthcare settings, the World Health Organization (WHO) included them in the eHealth quality improvement strategy (Pan American Health Organization, 2011). • The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published guidelines for the use of social media that has been result of share lessons learned in more than three years of integrating social media into CDC health communication; these guidelines can be adapted for Latin American settings. •Incorporating Web 2.0 tools to my teaching experience will allow me to keep track of long term outcomes that the Epi Info TM course’s participants have accomplished by using this data management package in their healthcare facilities. •Web 2.0 tools will change the way that I currently communicate to healthcare providers in Latin America. Creating a collaborative community will allow the course participants to have current information about frequent Epi Info TM updates in Spanish and I can learn from their experiences using this program. W- Worrisome •There is little research about effectiveness of using Web 2.0 in healthcare facilities in Latin America. •The PAHO strategic plan was launched in 2011, but I was not able to find preliminary result data. •I conducted a brief search in Pub Med about using
Web 2.0 tools in health care; It seems to be a controversial topic among scholars (Adams, 2010) •I’m afraid of Latin American healthcare providers’ readiness to adopt these new concepts (Web 2.0 and Visible thinking). •A possible downside is not being able to report reliable data from this experience. Background I have been teaching healthcare providers in Latin America about a free CDC data management package. It is a 7-8 weeks online course via www.cure4kids.org http://epimonitor.net/Epi-Images/Display/EpiInfo-med.jpg •Ethic issues related to the implementation of Web 2.0 collaborative communities in health care settings.
What are the rules?
How can I guard the rights of privacy and confidentiality? •I consider Web 2.0 is an extraordinary tool to solve diverse needs among healthcare providers and patients in Latin America. Healthcare provider’s participation through collaborating groups can positively affect the patient quality of care. However, any initiative that will affect patients or public healthcare facilities should be regulated by the local authorities and the Ministry of Health. It should follow international standards from world widely recognized institutions such as the WHO and CDC.
