61. Consumer Acceptance and Expectations of a Mobile Health Application to Photograph Skin Lesions for Early Detection of Melanoma. (Full text)

Consumer Acceptance and Expectations of a Mobile Health Application to Photograph Skin Lesions for Early Detection of Melanoma. Mobile teledermoscopy may facilitate skin self-examinations (SSEs) and further improve monitoring and detection of melanoma.To assess consumer acceptability and expectations of a mobile health app used to: (i) instruct SSE and (ii) conduct consumer-performed mobile teledermoscopy.People aged 18 years and above were invited to participate in either (i) an online survey (...) males in the focus groups (61%, 17/28) compared to the online survey (19%, 17/88). Regular SSEs were conducted by 56 (64%) of the online survey participants. Barriers to SSE were forgetfulness (44%), low self-perceived risk of melanoma (25%) and low confidence in conducting SSEs (25%). The large majority of online survey participants (95%) would consider sending photos of their skin lesions to a medical practitioner via an app. Focus group participants reported that they would accept using mobile

64. Real-world evaluation of a mobile health application in children with asthma. (Abstract)

Real-world evaluation of a mobile health application in children with asthma. Mobile health applications for asthma are increasingly being developed. However, there are no published randomized controlled trials evaluating efficacy in decreasing exacerbations.To evaluate the impact of a mobile asthma application for asthma-related urgent health care usage.We conducted a 6-month prospective randomized controlled trial for patients (6 months-21 years old) with persistent asthma presenting (...) with an asthma exacerbation to the emergency department of a pediatric academic medical center. Participants were randomized to AsthmaCare (application providing medication and trigger reminders and treatment plan) or the control (online asthma information). Primary outcome measures were comparison of emergency department and urgent care visits and hospitalizations 6 months before and after randomization.AsthmaCare participants (n = 98) were slightly older (7.84 vs 6.24 years; P = .02) than controls (n = 95

65. Using Technological Advances to Improve Surgery Curriculum: Experience With a Mobile Application. (Abstract)

Using Technological Advances to Improve Surgery Curriculum: Experience With a Mobile Application. Our previous home-video basic surgical skills curriculum required substantial faculty time and resources, and was limited by delayed feedback and technical difficulties. Consequently, we integrated that curriculum with a mobile application platform. Our purpose is to describe this application and learner satisfaction.The mobile platform incorporates a patented pedagogical design based on Ericsson's (...) curriculum. Prior challenges were directly addressed through the mobile application's ease of use, support of deliberate practice, and improved timeliness of feedback.Copyright © 2018 Association of Program Directors in Surgery.

66. Patients' use of mobile health applications: what general practitioners think. (Abstract)

Patients' use of mobile health applications: what general practitioners think. Chronic disease patients are adopting self-management techniques, such as using mobile health applications (apps). As GPs are the main caregivers of chronic disease patients, obtaining GP perspectives regarding patient use of mobile health apps is vital in understanding longer term value and feasibility of these apps.The aim was to determine GP perceptions of their current and potential roles in the use of health (...) apps by their patients and how patient-focused apps affect patient management.Ten GPs participated in semi-structured, face-to-face interviews, which focused on their perceptions of, and involvement in, the use of patient-focused health apps. Interviews were transcribed verbatim and thematically analysed by two independent reviewers.GPs found that apps complemented their role in patient management as additional sources of medical information of their patients. They perceived that patient-focused
