Regulation and protection of medical data

While phrases like data encryption and cyberattack were not a part of our collective vocabulary until recently, such large scale data breaches, like those that occurred at Yahoo and Uber, have brought the issue to the forefront. A few of these breaches standout from the rest, but all are costly in terms of the compromised user data and the financial ramifications.

Social Media and pseudoscience

The new Monthly Pulse is about Social Media and Pseudoscience.

People regularly use web search and social media to investigate health related issues. Nowadays, it is possible to find the answer to a question regarding a health concern in less than five seconds. This habit can be either positive, since it allows access to information and to support groups, or negative, as it can lead to misinformation and misinterpretation, and even harmful self-medication.

Mental health stigmas in the medical sector

As we approach mental health awareness month in May, it seems an appropriate time to introduce this month’s Pulse question, which looks at mental health stigmas amongst medical professionals.

According to the British Medical Journal, nearly one-third of doctors experience some kind of mental disorder. Yet for many it’s a shameful secret, because of the deep stigma towards mental illness that still exists in the medical profession.

Stigmatisation has inward-facing impacts for health professionals’ own willingness to seek help or disclose a mental health problem, which can result in an over-reliance on self-treatment, low peer support, and increased risk of suicide.

Airbnb-style stays for post-operative patients

Last week M3 conducted a survey in regards to the NHS trialling Airbnb-style stays for post-operative patients to ease hospital ‘bed-blocking’.

The scheme aims to offer an alternative to hospitals and care homes for patients who have had minor operations and are ready for discharge.

These patients would instead recuperate in nearby private houses, earning the homeowners up to £1,000 a month. This scheme, which is being piloted in Essex, aims to tackle bed shortages and save money, but has been criticised by healthcare professionals who warn it would give too much responsibility to untrained members of the public.

Single-Payer Healthcare System

Welcome to the October edition of ‘Inside M3 Insights’!

This month, we are sharing the results of one insider survey carried out by MDLinx, with nearly 900 physicians and advanced practice clinicians in the United States.

The purpose of this survey was to find out what healthcare professionals think about the latest healthcare reform, which was carried out by the Republicans to replace the Affordable Care Act.

The survey asked for a comparison between the multiple-payer system and a single-payer system sych as Medicare for All model proposed by Sen. B. Sanders.
