A summary from Simon Lees, Patient Advisory Board member

This study surveyed perspectives of people with epilepsy, care givers and healthcare professionals on using mobile devices in healthcare. Engagement of these three groups can be an issue, especially when considering confidentiality. The group included people willing to use wearable devices for long-term seizure tracking as well as people who were less certain about their usefulness. People with epilepsy agreed their understanding of epilepsy could be improved by health tracking, but were cautious about the option to send out automatic emergency calls. Care givers would be willing to support people with epilepsy.  Healthcare professionals thought that technology could aid their clinical practice, but thought that the clinical team would need reorganisation to share the reviewing and handling of data. People with epilepsy appeared not to be at risk of digital exclusion and showed an interest in the use of wearable technology. Overall, this is definitely a positive approach.
