The content that appears when a patient conducts a search will shape how he or she views the physician. While a Google search could turn up pages and page of websites, review sites, articles in medical journals, and even news stories related to the physician, patients only see a small percentage of that content.

Mobile Speech Applications for Healthcare: 5 Key Areas that Will Benefit | Healthcare IT News | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

Mobile healthcare applications have started to gain momentum, particularly over the past year, and could see explosive growth in the coming years.  Organizations have started to embrace mobile strategy within their core IT portfolio, and driven purely by the opportunities offered by the growing market, I believe the next big thing will be speech-enabled applications. The introduction of “SIRI” by Apple has created a lot of synergy for building similar speech-enabled applications, particularly within the healthcare space.
