Some insight into whether the recommending bodies are associated with the apps in any way would be helpful -- particularly for those apps that are not free. Update: a clarification from my health apps here: https://twitter.com/my_health_apps/status/403140594886668288

PatientView's curator insight, November 20, 2013 7:53 AM

So we can live healthier lives—with the help of our smartphones

 

Why visit and trust myhealthapps.net?

 

}  All of the initial 307 apps appearing on the myhealthapps.net site have been selected by 456 distinct patient groups, disability groups or empowered consumers as their favourite apps. The reviews from these groups are supplied for each app, as well as weblinks to the groups themselves.

 

}  myhealthapps.net unique ‘heart’-rating system. The health apps on the site have been allocated ‘heart’ ratings, according to the extent that each app exhibits 5 consumer/patient needs (weighted according to level of importance). These 5 qualities are attributes that patients and the public look for from their health apps, as determined by a 2013 PatientView study of 250 patient, disability and consumer groups from 16 countries around the world. People’s requirements from health apps are: • Give people more control over their condition (or keep them healthy) • Easy to use • Can be used regularly • Allow networking with other people like them (or with people who understand them) • Trustworthy.[1] 27 of the 307 health apps included in the initial version of the website gain a top ‘heart’ rating of 5 out of 5.

 

}  myhealthapps.net is opening with 307 featured apps. This number will be increased every six months by several hundred other favourite apps from patient groups, disability groups or empowered consumers (press release to be available at the time).

Electronic Patient Portals: Evidence on Health Outcomes, Satisfaction, Efficiency, and Attitudes: A Systematic Review

Electronic Patient Portals: Evidence on Health Outcomes, Satisfaction, Efficiency, and Attitudes: A Systematic Review | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Conclusion: Evidence that patient portals improve health outcomes, cost, or utilization is insufficient. Patient attitudes are generally positive, but more widespread use may require efforts to overcome racial, ethnic, and literacy barriers. Portals represent a new technology with benefits that are still unclear. Better understanding requires studies that include details about context, implementation factors, and cost.

A New Dimension of Health Care: Systematic Review of the Uses, Benefits, and Limitations of Social Media for Health Communication

A New Dimension of Health Care: Systematic Review of the Uses, Benefits, and Limitations of Social Media for Health Communication | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
Conclusions: Social media brings a new dimension to health care as it offers a medium to be used by the public, patients, and health professionals to communicate about health issues with the possibility of potentially improving health outcomes. Social media is a powerful tool, which offers collaboration between users and is a social interaction mechanism for a range of individuals. Although there are several benefits to the use of social media for health communication, the information exchanged needs to be monitored for quality and reliability, and the users’ confidentiality and privacy need to be maintained.
