T1-Mobile apps are good & needed-must balance to avoid the I-Patient Phenomenon -looking at data & not the patient. #MDchat
Tue Feb 8 18:16:01 PST 2011

An APP that would serve as a "Scanner" analyzing Caloric intake for Diet, Nutrition and Food Diary Purposes. Good idea? #mdchat

HospitalPatient

@EllenRichter That "Robot" unfortunately already exists at too many Hospitals :) #mdchat
Tue Feb 8 18:16:59 PST 2011

@HospitalPatient Either a scanner to analyze the calories, a very quick real-time database that provides similar info; also: carbs. #MDChat

@HospitalPatient - Already apps that address diet, nutrition, etc. Maybe one that physician and patient can work with together #MDchat

@HospitalPatient @Reach4MoJOYRN A concern many of us share. Technology should support, not replace, human interaction. #MDChat

T1:security a concern. Despite "secure" servers and "encrypted" data, breaches will occur. More $ 4 security needed 2 build trust #MDChat

@RichmondDoc @mdstudent31 Tech Natives speak the native language - EMR will be second nature to many graduating med students #mdchat
