Perlich, http://health.utah.gov/cmh/data/UtahDemographicTransformation.pdf • Diabetes in Utah (2008), http://health.utah.gov/diabetes/pdf/fctsandfig/diabetesinutah_book_May08.pdf

  6. Our society is changing … so is the World Wide Web

  7. Web 2.0 Definitions

  8. Web 2.0 Web 1.0 Static Lecture Expert-Model Interactive Conversation Consumer [Patient]-Model Public wants to have all the information • From multiple sources • In ways they can understand • From experts AND peers • When they want it 9 • http://www.brochure2blog.org/

  9. What Is Web 2.0? Originally coined by Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Publishing in 2003 Classic article: • http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html • User participation • Harnessing the collective intelligence • Design for "hackability" and remixability

  10. Wikipedia Definition “2nd generation Internet services that let people collaborate and share information online in previously unavailable ways” (wikipedia) • Blogs, wikis, photo / video sharing sites, social networking sites • Online web services that share data (“mashups”)

  11. Two Sides of Web 2.0 Two-Way Communication (“Social Software”) • Creates conversations between people • Examples • Blogs • Wikis • Photo/video sharing • Social networks Web Services • Software online • Google Tools • Protopage.com/websoft • Mashups • Photos overlaid on Google Earth • Embed services • Google custom search engine, Google calendar, etc.

  12. Two Sides of Web 2.0 With social media, people communicate with each other. With web services, machines communicate by sharing data.

  13. What is Social Software?

  14. Whoa, but what is it good for? Sharing with others Creating knowledge bases Making connections Building communities Engaging colleagues Empowering patients All of these things and more!

  15. The “Digital Divide” 16

  16. A Possible Bridge:Mobile Access • ~32% of all adults having ever gone online with a handheld (2009): • 48% of African Americans • 47% of English-speaking Hispanics • 53% of those between the ages of 18 and 29 • 39% of college graduates • 28% of white Americans http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2009/12-Wireless-Internet-Use.aspx

  17. 18

  18. Generation Gap Older generations use the Internet for • information searches, • emailing, and • buying products (2009). More likely than younger generations to look online for health information. Health questions drive those age 73 and older to the internet just as frequently as they drive Generation Y users, outpacing teens by a significant margin

  19. “Get health info”

  20. 21

  21. Web 2.0 and Diabetes 8 in 10 internet users (regardless of health status) look online for health info1 • AKA e-Patients 86% of internet users living with a disability or chronic illnesshave looked online for health information2 • compared with 79% of internet users with no chronic conditions Just half of adults with chronic conditions use the internet2 • But once online, they are avid consumers of health information 22 • http://www.pewinternet.org/trends/User_Demo_Jan_2009.htm • S. Fox, http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2007/Epatients-With-a-Disability-or-Chronic-Disease.aspx • S. Fox, http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2008/The-Engaged-Epatient-Population.aspx

  22. Web 2.0 and Diabetes (cont.) E-patients living with a chronic condition are more likely than others to say that online info: • Affects decisions about how to treat an illness • Prompts new questions of a doctor • Changes the way they cope with a chronic condition or manage pain1 However, they feel frustrated by a lack of info or an inability to find what they are looking for 23 • S. Fox, http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2007/Epatients-With-a-Disability-or-Chronic-Disease.aspx • S. Fox, http://e-patients.net/archives/2009/01/doing-our-best-to-blow-your-minds-emerging-trends-in-chronic-disease-care.html

  23. Our Conundrum Most people under age 40 are fully engaged with “social media” • but not yet dealing with chronic illness Most people over 60 are starting to face chronic conditions • but are not participating in social media This is changing, but what do we do??? 24 • S. Fox, E-patients With a Disability or Chronic Disease, http://www.pewinternet.org/trends.asp

  24. Provide the Best InformationUsing the Best Communication Methods Don’t just tell people what to do • Try to empower them to be better consumers of health information Make it easier to distinguish good information from bad • Rise above junk-info • User-generated content is here to stay • Real risk is for diabetes professionals to be quiet Tailor content and delivery to the audience • Encourage their participation • Promote dialogue • Enable people to tell their personal stories 25 • http://www.brochure2blog.org/

  25. How to proceed or even start? People generally don’t believe that the Internet is a panacea1 • But it is empowering patients like never before2 What do you do now? • Listen • Connect • Create 26 S. Fox, http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2008/The-Engaged-Epatient-Population.aspx e-Patients: How they can help us heal healthcare, http://www.acor.org/epatientswiki/index.php/

  27. Developing a strategy: Identify Target Audiences, Goals and Mediums Starting point – Utah Diabetes Prevention and Control Program • Knew that online resources provided general information about diabetes • Received a lot of requests for more specific, local information 28

  28. Forward to Local Expert* Local Diabetes Questions ???? Local Answers 29 * “Local Expert” not necessarily a diabetes expert

  29. Identify Target Audiences, Goals & Mediums Goal – Help connect the members of our community who have diabetes • Support each other • Gain a better understanding of our disease • Connect with local resources 30

  33. Improving local resources Patient had Primary Care Network insurance • Had questions about diabetes pump supplies • Called state office but information was confusing for patient and PCN staff Notified State office Arranged for more training for PCN staff members about diabetes products 34

  34. Sharing Information & Experiences Hypoglycemia question • Individual had a chance to describe her unique symptoms Sends note back saying it was helpful to understand she was not alone 35

  38. Think globally, but …what can you do locally? Create a public or private Twitter account • Example from Frankie951 • Option to connect via Internet and/or text messages • Connect with other CDEs • Connect patients together • Limited to 140 characters • Provide links to in-depth information 40 http://www.rikomatic.com/blog/2009/06/twitter-as-an-event-organization-tool-our-experience-with-the-frankie-95-birthday-festival.html

  39. Think globally, but …what can you do locally? Create a local diabetes Q&A blog • Try Blogspot, Wordpress or others • Set up to receive questions and comments via e-mail • Patients can also respond to questions • Moves beyond Q&A • Link to Twitter account with TwitterFeed • Use keywords (“meta-tags”) to increase people’s ability to find your blog • Remember to track your web traffic with Google Analytics, Wordpress or others 41

  40. Think globally, but …what can you do locally? Join or create a diabetes social network on Facebook.com or Ning.com • Join an existing national or international network • AADE on Facebook • TuDiabetes.com • Connect local support groups • Create a local identity • Local diabetes educators and experienced e-patients become “moderators” 42

  41. Next steps for Ask Ginny Converted Ask Ginny to a Blogspot blog Linked blog to Twitter Linked both to a Facebook Page Creation of “Ask Ginny & Friends” • Improved sustainability

  42. Next steps for diabetes in Utah Create a tool for diabetes educators and professionals under the working title • Online Family & Community Health Center Use empowerment education model1 to help those affected by diabetes: • Reflect on self-management experiments • Discuss the emotional experience of living with diabetes • Engage in systematic patient-centered goal setting and problem solving • Answer clinical questions and provide culturally tailored education materials 44 Martha M. Funnell, Robin Nwankwo, Mary Lou Gillard, Robert M. Anderson, and Tricia S. Tang. Implementing an Empowerment-Based Diabetes Self-management Education Program. The Diabetes Educator, 2005, 31: 53-61.

  43. Next steps for diabetes in Utah Target audience • Uninsured people affected by, or at risk for, diabetes • Those who care for and care about them Reach • Partner with universities to conduct market research • Explore public kiosks, public libraries, ATMs and elementary schools • Utilize text messages, existing media channels and support groups Launch – First Phase – World Diabetes Day (14 November 2009) • The Faces of Diabetes in Utah • Inspired by local girl scout • Current site – http://inspiredbydiabetes.blogspot.com • Future site – http://health.utah.gov/facesofdiabetes 45
