In-Depth: Analysis of 137 HealthKit-enabled apps

In-Depth: Analysis of 137 HealthKit-enabled apps | Digital Innovation in Healthcare | Scoop.it

This week MobiHealthNews once again rounded up an up-to-date list of health and wellness apps that connect to Apple’s HealthKit, a health and fitness data exchange that makes it easier for iOS apps to share data with each other. For this week’s in-depth report, MobiHealthNews analyzed the ways in which these 137 health and wellness apps are integrating with HealthKit. Some only pull data from HealthKit, while others only push data into HealthKit for other apps to use. A good number — about 20 percent — do both.


Via Olivier Delannoy
Laurent FLOURET's insight:

Looking forward to much more...: "While HealthKit makes it possible to share dozens of different types of health and fitness data, most HealthKit-enabled apps are making use of the same few data points. Active calories and weight data are both among the top three most popular data types to push or pull from HealthKit. Heart rate data and step count is right up there, too."

Why Facebook Could Become the World’s Biggest Healthcare Network

Why Facebook Could Become the World’s Biggest Healthcare Network | Digital Innovation in Healthcare | Scoop.it

Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) could soon follow Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) ,Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF  ) , and Google (NASDAQ: GOOG  ) (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) into the healthcare field. According to a recent Reuters report, the company is experimenting with online support communities for patients and mulling the development of personal health and fitness apps.


Via Plus91, Celine Sportisse
Laurent FLOURET's insight:

Yes.. BUT "Becoming a private social network for patients and doctors is a smart next step for the social network, but we should remember that Facebook couldn’t compete against LinkedIn for a simple reason — the former was a place for personal posts, while the latter hosted professional profiles. We could see the same problem with asking patients to share health information on Facebook — its reputation as a casual social network could prevent it from ever being taken seriously as a healthcare platform."

Open thread: Microsoft Health's big advantage is cross-platform support

Open thread: Microsoft Health's big advantage is cross-platform support | Digital Innovation in Healthcare | Scoop.it

Microsoft has been winning generally approving headlines for its Microsoft Band fitness tracker and accompanying Microsoft Health platform, since both were revealed – seemingly unintentionally at first – on Wednesday.


One of the key points about both hardware and software is their cross-platform nature: they won’t just be restricted to people with a Windows Phone smartphone and/or a computer running the Windows OS. They’ll also support Android, iOS and Mac.


Microsoft Health is also open to other devices and apps, with Jawbone’s Up and the apps MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper the first to be announced.

Start-up, edifyHEALTH, is building a complementary platform that measures the outcomes effectiveness of behavior change apps continuously, as patients use it.  The effect of patient choices about how they use an app, and even how changes to the OS or device (for example), affect the UX of the app and consequently the health outcome targeted by the consumer (aka patient) are visible in the data.  If only more researchers would try to understand the technology environment in which people actually use apps, they might be able to help address methods of research that engender trust in the conclusions inferred from app user data.

Keith McGuinness's curator insight, November 14, 2014 8:12 PM

Until apps measure and report their effect on specific relevant health outcomes, the word "prescribe" must remain in quotation marks.  


A doctor does not prescribe a drug without trustworthy evidence of effectiveness.  Why is an app different from a drug in this respect?  Because apps are not a safety risk?  Effectiveness is still the objective; is it not?
