Prescribable mobile apps: a 'huge threat' for Pharma?

Prescribable mobile apps: a 'huge threat' for Pharma? | Pharma Future | Scoop.it

With the proliferation of mHealth apps, it was only a matter of time before healthcare providers would start prescribing apps as soon as apps proved to be as or more effective than prescription drugs.

[AS: What if pharma is creating/commissioning the apps? A threat, or an opportunity?]

Health Is The Digital Revolution Still Waiting to Happen

Health Is The Digital Revolution Still Waiting to Happen | Pharma Future | Scoop.it

Today, we have thousands of health and fitness apps connecting us to digital “coaches” and helping us socialize with our friends, but we don’t have a medical platform. We don’t have a medical Google, or an Amazon, or a Facebook. We don’t even have an AOL of medicine. What we mostly have is a Wikipedia for medicine, which I and my fellow clinicians and colleagues quote daily. (That’s a good thing.)
