Keeping healthy would be more fun with addictive mobile games

Keeping healthy would be more fun with addictive mobile games | Innovation in Health | Scoop.it

Blue Goji, the latest startup from serial entrepreneurs Kai and Charles Huang, posits that fitness would be more fun if addictive mobile games were layered on top of cardio workouts. Starting today, the company will learn just how many exercisers feel the same.

MyFitnessPal, the eight-year-old diet-and-exercise community, has partnered with Blue Goji for a “limited launch” that will give its users special benefits for being early adopters.

13M wearables to be used in corporate wellness plans by 2018

13M wearables to be used in corporate wellness plans by 2018 | Innovation in Health | Scoop.it

Over the next five years, 13 million wearable devices embedded with wireless connectivity will be integrated into wellness plans offered by businesses, according to ABI research’s new report.

 

In 2013, principal analyst Jonathan Collins said less than 200,000 wearable devices have been integrated into wellness plans.

 

The report factors in the social and economic drivers supporting the integration of wearable wireless device adoption, such as the point at which people start taking more responsibility in healthcare, Collins told MobiHealthNews.

 

“While some device vendors are hoping that strong consumer awareness will drive corporate wellness adoption for their products, they also need to understand and focus on the most influential parts of the healthcare value chain,” Collins said.

I agree regarding culture, but the main barrier is motivation, and as a recent convert to Fitbit, I think wearables are a big step forward.

I am wearing mine, are you?

Mike Rucker's curator insight, September 3, 2014 8:35 PM

Hopefully a good proportion of the 1,300,000 devices will not be simple pedometers and/or accelerometers. Looking forward to see where this might all go.

HIMSS survey: 80% of clinicians use iPads, smartphone apps to improve patient care

HIMSS survey: 80% of clinicians use iPads, smartphone apps to improve patient care | Innovation in Health | Scoop.it

In corporate offices, on the street, in coffeehouses, and in the home, smartphones and tablets are becoming ubiquitous, changing the way people interact with each other and interface with the world. Doctor’s offices are no exception to this trend, as mobile devices like iPads, laptops, and smartphones revolutionize the way physicians capture information and connect with patients.

 

Laptops and workstations on wheels remain the most popular devices for physician use, since they provide direct access to the full EHR interface, but tablets are catching up quickly. With the popularity and relative cost-effectiveness of tablets like the iPad, Kindle Fire, and other Android devices, even devices not specifically designed for healthcare are finding a place in the consultation room. According to the survey, approximately 30% of physicians and non-physician clinicians use mobile devices to facilitate between one quarter to three quarters of patient services, while 9% indicate that 75% to all of their services rely on mobile technology to some degree.

Rowan Norrie's insight:

Really interesting article to show how important to carry out research when developing a mobile app to ensure you have the right market segment and the right features and benefits for your product.

 

Also, when looking into reasons why products fail to carry on, you need to consider why they stopped using as well as why some users continue.

Hospital says COPD app could cut readmissions by 40 percent

Hospital says COPD app could cut readmissions by 40 percent | Innovation in Health | Scoop.it

"Futura mHealth, a Philadelphia-based joint venture from Futura Mobility and Temple University Hospital, has developed an app the company says can reduce hospital admissions for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by 38 to 40 percent.

 

A chronic lung condition, COPD manifests itself as occasional attacks of extreme shortness of breath, called exacerbations, which usually lead to a patient being hospitalized, as well as losing an average of three years of life expectancy per attack, according to Futura mHealth CEO David Gulian. But those attacks can be detected up to seven days beforehand and prevented with early treatment.

 

SmartScope is an HTML5 app that has COPD patients fill out an eight-question survey once a day and sends that information back to their provider, who then assesses their likelihood of an attack based on their answers. Certain questions require the patient to use devices like a peak-flow meter or a thermometer. Gulian said Bluetooth-enabled devices can take the measurements and put them in the app, but the devices are too expensive for most patients, so most use non-connected devices instead and enter data manually."
