re: UCSF Heart Disease Study To Use Mobile Apps
With mobile technology we have a world of patient data just waiting to be collected. Using mobile apps studies such as the heart disease study discussed will be much easier to perform and that amount of data that can potentially be collected will be much more vast. Of course, with any such technology, tests need to be performed and the applications need to attest to some sort of accuracy measure. Standards need to be in place not only for the accuracy of the data but also for what will be done with the amount of data that will be collected. The potential is there, we just have to gather the right information and apply it correctly.
