Silicon Valley companies are creating more mobile health apps and getting more financial backing than ever before. You can now use your phone to help diagnose an ear infection, and even monitor a diabetic child's blood sugar.
"It's the next big thing, no question about it,” Vital Connect CEO Nersi Nazari said of mobile health. Vital Connect in Campbell just launched the HealthPatch MD. It’s a patch that sticks onto the skin and provides constant heart monitoring and tracks pulse, respiratory rate, and other health metrics. It’s the first device of its kind and available for doctors or loved ones to track someone with a heart condition.
