Can Brands Ride the Next Wave of Fitness Apps and Wearables? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

A new set of investments from big-name brands Nike, The North Face and Tory Burch are bringing some much-needed utility and appeal to mobile apps that keep them afloat. Once considered the primary (and often uneffective) way for brands to get into mobile, brands are now applying better types of content and data to fitness apps.

Smartphones: the new stethoscopes

Smartphones: the new stethoscopes | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Among the many instruments your doctor uses — stethoscope, thermometer, scale — the most valuable one may be in her pocket: a smartphone.   Due to increasingly compressed office visits, patients are becoming more active participants in managing their healthcare, and a new generation of Internet-savvy physicians is using social media to improve the way they run their practices. Currently, 67 percent of physicians use social media — sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Pinterest — for professional purposes, according to a recent report released by the Federation of State Medical Boards. One Yahoo Facebook user reported that her nurse practitioner gives advice over the social networking site, while another said sharing photos and videos can even save her a trip to the office.   “Social media is changing the way people give and receive information and, as a result, the medical profession is changing, too,” Lee Aase, social media director at the Mayo Clinic, tells Yahoo Health.

Google Co-Founders To Healthcare: We're Just Not That Into You

Google Co-Founders To Healthcare: We're Just Not That Into You | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
“Generally, health is just so heavily regulated. It's just a painful business to be in. It's just not necessarily how I want to spend my time. Even though we do have some health projects, and we'll be doing that to a certain extent. But I think the regulatory burden in the U.S. is so high that think it would dissuade a lot of entrepreneurs.”
