News You Need - 3 Big Little Things from HealthXL

Commentary
Chandana Fitzgerald
&

It’s time for your monthly digital health news dose. We have looked back at three of the most noteworthy pieces of news from the last month and distilled what they mean for the industry and the key takeaways you should have on your radar. Interested in getting beyond the headlines? We’ve included three industry experts who can help you get behind these stories - just let us know if you’d like us to make the introduction!


1. Skin lesion detection apps not as reliable despite CE mark?

Story snapshot: A review in the BMJ identified nine eligible studies that evaluated apps for risk stratification of skin lesions, and showed variable and unreliable test accuracy for six different apps.

Why is it notable? Evidence and regulation in question. 

Industry Implications - Push for education and clarity. 

Letter to the Editor

In response to the above story you just read, we've received a note from our friends at Skin Vision with their take on the same. There's always two sides to every story, so HealthXL wishes to provide them with an avenue for their perspective.

Response from Erik de Heus, CEO Skin Vision:

‘’SkinVision would like to confirm that, as per published studies and regulators approval, the SkinVision Service is safe and effective, and has so far already helped to identify thousands of cases of skin cancer.

Specifically:

  • SkinVision can detect 95% of skin cancer cases https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jdv.15935. The sensitivity of general practitioners ranges from 61% and 66%, while the sensitivity of dermatologists is between 75% and 92%.
  • SkinVision goes beyond legal and regulatory minimum requirements - for example by having achieved voluntary independent certifications (ISO 13485, ISO 27001).
  • The BMJ article does not consider key factors, and specifically: ignores recent studies with positive results for SkinVision; does not consider the benefits of the device but only risks; provides potentially misleading information on SkinVision’s compliance status, and public health impact.

SkinVision’s official reply to the BMJ can be found here: BMJ.com, and additional information can be found on our website www.skinvision.com‘’

2: Babylon Health and physician from the NHS tussle over triage chatbot’s safety.

Story snapshot: On the note of diagnostic bots, and two sides to any story, Babylon Health gave in this week and reacted to provocation from their long-time Twitter critic, Dr David Watkins (i.e @DrMurphy11). In what has now become a media war, Babylon is defending it's algorithms and DrMurphy11 is challenging their validity and accuracy. 

Why is it notable? Set clear expectations.

3: Big Tech and WHO meet to stop COVID-19 infodemic

Story snapshot: As the world wide web is becoming increasingly awash with misinformation about the coronavirus (COVID-19), the modern gatekeepers of information - Facebook, Google, Amazon & Co. - met last week to discuss how to halt the spread of fake news about the disease.

Why is it notable? Nip it in the bud. 

Industry Implications - Social media is a boon and a bane.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
