Health Kit. Check.
I’m fully mHealth geeked out. Let the gluttonous holiday feeding frenzy begin! Maybe I’ll even take time between snarfing some of my wife’s scrumptious eggnog cookies to figure out what these things actually do.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a total novice when it comes to playing with mHealth tools. I have yet to master Health Kit on my iPhone. I got lazy and stopped recording information into the MyFitnessPal app on our iPad. Now, having just signed up for a wellness program at work, I’ll be donning a Fitbit in short order. Help!
To a certain extent, I think hospitals are in the same boat. mHealth is proliferating in the consumer market. Exactly how and why hospitals link to those technologies and make the data useful for all involved is an evolving question, and something we tried to address this year in our Connecting the Continuum series.
The series comes to an end with this blog, but I encourage you to revisit the reports and see how some of your peers are tapping into the power of mHealth.
