Just how do you regulate a mobile app?

Just how do you regulate a mobile app? | Health Information Technology | Scoop.it

With 60,000 health-based apps currently available, and a market expected to be worth of $26 billion by 2017, there's a clear need for the FDA to figure a workable solution to the quick evolution of mHealth. Unfortunately, there's no app for that.  

 

You might not have been prescribed a mobile app yet, but you may soon be.

In addition to prescription drugs and prescribed behavioral changes, mobile health applications (referred to as mHealth apps), are dramatically expanding the reach and efficacy of a visit to the clinic. For that reason, mHealth has come under the microscope by public and private regulatory groups.

 

Apps are changing the face of health care, and that's exactly why a number of groups are keeping close eye on them. Just how does the FDA regulate apps?

How The Brain Rewires Itself - #Fitness #Health

How The Brain Rewires Itself - #Fitness #Health | Health Information Technology | Scoop.it


"FOR DECADES, THE PREVAILING DOGMA IN neuroscience was that the adult human brain is essentially immutable, hardwired, fixed in form and function, so that by the time we reach adulthood we are pretty much stuck with what we have. Yes, it can create (and lose) synapses, the connections between neurons that encode memories and learning. And it can suffer injury and degeneration. But this view held that if genes and development dictate that one cluster of neurons will process signals from the eye and another cluster will move the fingers of the right hand, then they'll do that and nothing else until the day you die. There was good reason for lavishly illustrated brain books to show the function, size and location of the brain's structures in permanent ink.ut research in the past few years has overthrown the dogma. In its place has come the realization that the adult brain retains impressive powers of "neuroplasticity"--the ability to change its structure and function in response to experience."
