What are Mobile Health Solutions?
Many mobile health solutions are available for physicians and patients to improve their quality of care and access to essential wellness services. The following are examples of standard mobile health solutions:
Online or Remote Consultations
Patients can conduct virtual visits instead of scheduling in-person appointments and wasting time and money going to a doctor's office. They may employ third-party mobile apps, video conferencing software platforms, or digital tools given by their doctor's office or hospital.
Mobile Data Tracking
Using health and fitness applications, patients can track their personal health data, such as insulin levels and body temperature. Physicians can use this data in real-time to make a fast diagnosis, spot life-threatening changes in vital statistics, and investigate unusual symptoms. Medical equipment connected to the internet can collect data and send it to other devices, healthcare providers, and electronic health records. Insulin pumps, heart monitors, and ingestible sensors are examples of these devices. These devices may even diagnose themselves and contact relevant specialists if they use artificial intelligence or machine learning capabilities.
Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
Patients and healthcare providers can benefit from EHRs, which make it easier to access, transfer, and update information. EHRs can help determine the optimal healthcare treatments for patients, detect possible dangers among similar groups, and prescribe preventative measures for certain populations, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
