Top 10 Medical Apps for Cardiology

Top 10 Medical Apps for Cardiology | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

When you search the term “Cardiology” in the iTunes app store and Google Play you get about 400 and 250 results respectively. Finding those needles in the haystack, those few apps that will actually help you deliver better care can be challenging to say the least. So leave that search to us.

Here’s a list of 10 great cardiology apps to get you started. The apps in this list are based on our experience reviewing over a thousand apps to date and my personal experiences using many of these apps as a cardiology fellow. We’ll be updating and amending this list in the future as we discover more new, innovative apps.

In this edition, you’ll notice a few themes including several apps for patient communication as well as a strong presence from professional societies.

DrawMD Cardiology

DrawMD has been an iMedicalApps favorite for some time. Designed to facilitate discussions between cardiologists and their patients, the Cardiology edition of the DrawMD series has several sketches of cardiac anatomy on which you can draw either free form or using “stamps.”

For example, one of the including drawings is an artery in cross-section. When explaining a focal stenosis, you can add a stamp that adds an atherosclerotic plaque to the vessel. When talking about pre-dilating the lesion, you can add a stamp that adds an intracoronary balloon inside the stenosis. There’s a library of stock images and stamps designed to faciliate common discussions cardiologists have with their patients.

One nice feature worth mentioning is the ability to import images or take pictures within the app that can then be drawn on. All of the images, including annotations, can be shared with your patient by email.

Price: Free
Platforms: iPad
iMedicalApps Review: Our review of this version is coming, but check out our prior reviews of DrawMD Surgery and DrawMD OB/Gyn.

Health Wearables Still In Its Early Days, PwC Reports Reveals

Health Wearables Still In Its Early Days, PwC Reports Reveals | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Health wearables are still in the early stages of technology and product adoption cycles, according to PwC’s Consumer Intelligence Series – The Wearable Future report – an extensive U.S. research project that surveyed 1,000 consumers, wearable technology influencers and business executives, as well as monitored social media chatter, to explore the technology’s impact on society and business. In conjunction with The Wearable Future report, PwC’s Health Research Institute (HRI) also launched a separate report, Health wearables: Early days, further examining consumers’ attitudes and behaviors toward health wearable technology.

According to Greentech CEO Ian Clark, health wearables are “a bit trivial right now.” “I don’t doubt that the wearable piece is going to be a productive business model for people. I just don’t know whether it’s going to bend the curve in terms of health outcomes,” Clark said at the recent Rock Health Innovation Summit.

While fitness bands, smart watches and other wearables are already established in the market, many of them have under-delivered on expectations. Consider that 33 percent of surveyed consumers who purchased a health wearable technology device more than a year ago now say they no longer use the device at all or use it infrequently. Currently, only 1 in 5 American adults owns a wearable device with only 1 in 10 using it on a daily basis.

Key drivers of the low adoption rate include:

- Price

- privacy

- security

- lack of “actionable” and inconsistent information from such devices

In fact, 82 percent of respondents were worried that wearable technology would invade their privacy and 86 percent expressed concern that wearables would make them more vulnerable to security breaches.

In order for health wearables to take advantage of the $2.8 trillion healthcare opportunity, companies must better engage the consumer, turn data into insights and create a simplified user experience to improve consumer health.  Additional key findings and recommendations from HRI’s Health wearables: Early days report include:

- Consumers have not yet embraced wearable health technology in large numbers, but they’re interested. More than 80 percent of consumers said an important benefit of wearable technology is its potential to make health care more convenient. Companies hoping to exploit this nascent interest will have to create affordable products offering greater value for both users and their healthcare partners.

- Consumers do not want to pay much for their wearable devices; they would rather be paid to use them. Companies – especially insurers and healthcare providers – offering incentives for use may gain traction. HRI’s report found that 68 percent of consumers would wear employer-provided wearables streaming anonymous data to an information pool in exchange for break on their insurance premiums. Moreover, consumers are more willing to try wearable technology provided by their primary care doctor’s office than they are from any other brand or category.

- While employers and health company executives expect wearables to provide valuable insights, few consumers are interested in using wearables to share health data with friends and family, and, citing concerns about privacy, consumers trust their personal physicians most with their health data. Therefore, companies should ensure privacy policies are crystal clear. Physicians already have the trust of consumers, and healthcare organizations have expertise in protecting personal health information. Consumers will want to see those high standards applied to health wearables data, especially as they become integrated into electronic medical records.

- Consumers may need a human touch to help them choose a device and its associated apps. An “apps formulary” of apps vetted by medical teams (and available in a virtual apps pharmacy) could help consumers wade through the thousands of health apps and devices.

“For wearables to help shape the New Health Economy, next generation devices will need to be interoperable, integrated, engaging, social and outcomes-driven,” said Vaughn Kauffman, principal, PwC Health Industries. “Wearable data can be used by insurers and employers to better manage health, wellness and healthcare costs, by pharmaceutical and life sciences companies to run more robust clinical trials, and by healthcare providers to capture data to support outcomes-based reimbursement. But it will be critical to address the consumer concerns that we’ve identified, such as cost, privacy, and ease of use.” For more information,

Emerging mHealth -

Emerging mHealth - | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Mobile healthcare (mHealth) is “the biggest technology breakthrough of our time [being used] to address our greatest national challenge”, said US Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius in her keynote address at the 2011 annual mHealth Summit in the Washington, DC area. Worldwide, the technology and its promise have moved up the healthcare agenda


This Economist Intelligence Unit report, commissioned by PwC, examines the current state and potential of mHealth in developed and emerging markets, the ongoing barriers to its adoption and the implications for companies in the field. Based on the research, the key findings include:


Expectations are high for mHealthRoughly one-half of patients surveyed for this report predict that mHealth will improve the convenience, cost and quality of their healthcare in the next three years (see “About the research”). Meanwhile, six in ten doctors and payers believe that its widespread adoption in their countries is inevitable in the near future. Yet most experts interviewed for this study, while also convinced that mHealth will eventually become an important part of care provision, expect that adoption will take time.
