All other product or service names are the property of their respective owners. © Motorola, Inc Frame: “Health” vs. “Healthcare”..students of medical economics have long realized that what consumers demand when they purchase medical services are not these services per se but rather better health.[1][1] Throughout this paper I refer to “health IT” standards, as opposed to “healthcare IT” standards. The difference is huge, in my opinion: “Healthcare” refers to the current paradigm of provider-based, illness-centric services. “Health IT” is a broader term that may or not include a provider, and where the main focus is health maintenance and promotion at the individual level. There are a plethora of healthcare IT standards already in place, and many more are under development. So much so that a recent project tracks all of those standards via a “map” of sort, the Health Care Standards Landscape. Significantly all of those (current and proposed) standards are provider- centric; that is, they place the healthcare provider (physician, clinic or hospital) at the center of and as the host of such healthcare IT systems.

All other product or service names are the property of their respective owners. © Motorola, Inc Frame: “Fix” vs. “Maintain and Enhance” The current healthcare paradigm is mostly focused on “fixing” the individual once she presents symptoms of an illness or health condition. Once a health condition has manifested itself, the available opportunities for cost-savings are very limited, and the damage to the individual’s health is mostly done. Contrary to the prevailing paradigm, I advance the idea of patient-centric, family-driven health maintenance and enhancement. A framework is outlined for standards to enable Personalized Health Informatics (“PHI”). This is not about healthcare; this is about enhancing individuals’ and families’ health. And, as a direct consequence, society’s health.

All other product or service names are the property of their respective owners. © Motorola, Inc Personalized Health Informatics Definition: Comprehensive set of Internet-based tools that place the individual (and his/her dependents) at the center of an encompassing architecture of services that promote and enhance health. There is a need for PHI systems to manage all the relationships that influence an individual’s health. The end goal for the proposed PHI standards is to facilitate a world of consumer-mandated demand for data to be posted to her own health-related record. Using the analogy of credit card adoption rates: PHI standards will allow consumers to demand that providers deliver their data to the consumer’s health record. “If you are not PHI-enabled, I will not use your services.” Clear, open, and widely-adopted standards will make this “PHI enabled” sign as ubiquitous as the “We accept Visa, MC, Discover” signs at merchants. IEEE can lead this effort.

All other product or service names are the property of their respective owners. © Motorola, Inc Considerations Identified need for standard? Yes. Bring health IT to consumers in parallel to many activities trying to bring healthcare IT to providers Stakeholders, benefits them? Consumers; patient rights’ organizations (CF, autism); consumer orgs.; CDC; Public Health agencies; WHO; USAid Area already covered, SDOs? Little known activities starting with and centered on consumer. Could IEEE provide expertise? Yes. Institutional (EMBS; networking; security; privacy); Individual (300K technically competent consumers of health services) Relate w/ standards activities. Yes. Integrates with and leverages all existing provider- centric standards “Critical mass, ” willing SMEs Probably.
