The world is changing. Digital Technology can impact healthcare for patients, practitioners and providers alike. The average person spends more than two hours on a mobile device each day, and as the world adapts to this, healthcare must as well. This means going mobile.
Healthcare Apps, or mhealth, are a rapidly growing industry. According to data from the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science, the number of health apps available to download from the major app stores has doubled since 2015. When it comes to healthcare, innovation and cost-efficiency is the name of the game.
Patients are at the core of this need for innovation. By providing their consumers with self-service tools and information healthcare, providers are able to reduce in-person visits, support patients through treatment plans and provide a more constant service without loss of resources. By going digital, organisations can be more efficient, more transparent, and more effective.
