You Can Skype Your Doctor, But Insurers Will Pay Less For It | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
What if you could see your physician for a minor issue without having to drive there, find parking, or spend time in a waiting room? Telehealth makes that possible--but insurance companies may make it harder for doctors to adopt it.

Do fitness apps improve health?

Do fitness apps improve health? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

The new year is here and so are the resolutions: Get fit. Lose weight. Feel healthier.

The good news? There’s an app for that.

In fact, a recent report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration counts about 100,000 apps dedicated to mobile health available for Android and Apple devices.

These apps would seem to do it all: track activity and count calories, monitor your sleep cycle, check symptoms, check your vision, help you quit smoking, help you plan your pregnancy, help you de-stress, document your menstrual cycle, link you to medical professionals, even maintain medical appointments and records.

History of Telemedicine Infographic - eVisit® Telemedicine Solution | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
These days, we sometimes take telehealth (and general telecommunications and digital technology, for that matter), for granted. Afterall, with the widespread popularity of apps like Skype and the modern convenience of the internet, connecting with someone virtually seems almost commonplace. The truth is telehealth has a long history in the medical field, and has accelerated with each new technological innovation that’s transformed how we communicate over distances. The eVisit team decided to do a little research and create an infographic that maps the full history of telehealth (see below!). When did telemedicine as we know it start? How has the...

Why is the Health Score a valuable indicator to track over time?

Why is the Health Score a valuable indicator to track over time? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
In the past few years we have seen a “consumerization” of medical devices, as there has been an explosion of health and fitness-related wearable devices and applications in the market. Most major consumer electronics manufacturers have launched step counters, digital weighing scales, blood pressure monitors, activity bands and, more recently, smart watches, moving the wearables market to an early mass market. It has never been easier for people to get easy access to a variety of health and fitness-related data, but this is also a problem, as no one can handle a multitude of data and often doesn’t know how to put the data points into a larger context.

Do Patients Rely on Mobile Healthcare Apps More Than Their Doctors?

Do Patients Rely on Mobile Healthcare Apps More Than Their Doctors? | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

In the not-so-distant past, patients had only one source for healthcare expertise — their personal physicians. They relied on doctors to monitor their symptoms, track changes in their health, manage their diseases and personalize their care. But in recent years, mobile technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) has changed all that.Now, armed with wearables and mobile healthcare apps, individuals can monitor their own health data and get continuous guidance and information from the devices they carry with them every day.But the availability of digital health tools is a double-edged sword for the medical industry. Patients are becoming more engaged in their own wellness and taking greater responsibility for staying healthy, which leads to better outcomes. On the other hand, as they rely more on these tools, are they relying less on the robust insights and expertise of medical professionals?
