Lars, Niles. (June 2014). Connected Medical Devices, Apps: Are They Leading the IOT Revolution – or Vice Versa. Wired.-devices-apps-leading-iot-revolution-vice-versa.Jessica, thank you for your post. You mentioned the impact that connected medical devices can haveon personal health records, and you mentioned the Fitbit watch. I do agree with the new series 4 Apple watch has a function that is capable of generating an electrocardiogram comparable to a one lead electrocardiogram. The implications could be great for the patients with atrial fibrillation. The new Apple watch can also detect when a patient has fallen and prompt the patient to connect emergency services (Apple Watch Series 4). The data collected from the Apple watch can then be shared with the doctor and be a part of the personal health record. Apple Watch Series 4- Health. (n.d.). Retrieved on October 5, 2018, from -watch-series-4/health/Jessica, Thank you for your post regarding personal health records! There are many benefits to a patient maintaining a personal health record. I have four children, and as many of us know children may get many immunizations in the first years of their lives. Many daycares and schools require this information along with the actual dates of immunizations. I find it difficult to keep so many different papers related to my family's health organized. With a personal health record this information is available and can include shot records, any hospital visits summaries, doctors names and phone numbers, and much more ( Mayo Clinic, 2017). What is great is personal health records have shown to encourage patients with some adding reminders for immunizations, doctors visit, and exercise encouragement (Lester, Boateng, Studeny, & Coustasse, 2016).
