The New York Attorney General's office announced today that it has settled with three mobile health apps around alleged misleading claims and irresponsible privacy practices. The apps include Adidas subsidiary Runtastic; MIT Media Lab spinoff Cardiio, and Matis, maker of "My Baby's Beat", an app that claims to monitor a fetus's heartbeat using the iPhone microphone.
Denise Silber's insight:
The picture is misleading because this has nothing to do with pills. Important message beyond need for apps to provide proof of claims, is that it's one state and not a federal agency attacking the apps.
Humans are about 72% accurate at reading emotions from facial expressions, computer vision is already up to 82%. That's just the start. What's coming next are wearables that read exactly what is going on in your emotional health, not just physical, and align it with what's happening in your life.We've already explored some of the biofeedback tech looking to minimise stress along with the now and next of tracking health and happiness. One new way we can think about what's in store for emotion sensing is to break it down into input (tracking), analysis and algorithms, and output in the form of apps and exercises.

Denise Silber's insight:
Neither patients, nor even the people who work in the hospitals necessarily know how their hospital's information system is doing, how effective it is...compared to other similar institutions in the world. There is a tool for that, proposed by HIMSS. And I think it could be very useful. How about you? Those who can make it to Belgium on March 28-29 will enjoy this focus.
