11 Super Mobile Medical Apps
July 05, 2012 09:05 AM Healthcare is in the middle of a mobile revolution. Doctors are adopting mobile apps that make them more effective, and patients are taking to ones that give them more control over their healthcare. Here are 11 apps that stand out from the crowd.
Accountable care is fast becoming a healthcare requirement, and patient education is an important part of any accountable care effort. Emmi Solutions has been providing patient engagement products for the last decade, and early this year it made all its Web-based products accessible on mobile devices. Physicians can recommend information for patients, and patients can access that information on their iPads, iPhones, and Android devices, explains Emmi Solutions CEO Devin Gross.
Physicians can use Emmi's products to follow up with patients after office visits, providing information on preventative or treatment options and help with medical decisions. Patients can view or read the material when and where they want to.
About 10% of people currently use Emmi products through mobile devices, Gross says, but he expects that number to increase.
