Adherence is an important factor for the outcome of medical therapies. Several reminder applications to raise adherence have been developed, e.g., smart phone apps. Literature suggests that such solutions seem to be inefficient. In this paper, we discuss current research in the field of ultra-mobile devices, i.e., smart watches. In addition, we investigate(More)
A variety of substances contained in cosmetic products can lead to allergic reactions for certain individuals. The names of such substances are predominantly printed onto a product in small-sized expert language. For this reason, consumers often have difficulties to assess whether some of the ingredients might be harmful for them. Consequently, patients are(More)
BACKGROUND Today, runners use wearable technology such as global positioning system (GPS)-enabled sport watches to track and optimize their training activities, for example, when participating in a road race event. For this purpose, an increasing amount of low-priced, consumer-oriented wearable devices are available. However, the variety of such devices is(More)
Medication adherence is an important factor for the outcome of medical therapies. To support high adherence levels, smartwatches can be used to assist the patient. However, a successful integration of such devices into clinicians' or general practitioners' information systems requires the use of standards. In this paper, a medication management system(More)
Clinical cancer registries are a valuable data source for health services research (HSR). HSR is in need of high quality routine care data for its evaluations. However, the secondary use of routine data - such as documented cancer cases in a disease registry - poses new challenges in terms of data quality, IT-management, documentation processes and data(More)
OBJECTIVES Today, hospitals and other health care-related institutions are accumulating a growing bulk of real world clinical data. Such data offer new possibilities for the generation of disease models for the health economic evaluation. In this article, we propose a new approach to leverage cancer registry data for the development of Markov models.(More)
Smart glasses (SG) are on the verge of entering the mass market. Some physicians are already experimenting with SG in hospital settings. This paper gives a brief description of SG in general. Furthermore, several health-related situations in which SG might have beneficial influence are presented. However, there are perils or different kind and also open(More)
Even long before it was published, many people regarded Google Glass as a Swiss army knife for nearly every task. There are some fields of application in which the best known wearable device could simplify daily life, such as car navigation or reading recipes. But does this also apply for medicine and health care? This paper will at first explain what(More)
