In TIME’s September 16th list of the 50 best iPhone apps of 2013, two mHealth apps were recognized as worthy of attention, and both focus on health and wellness. As published by TIME magazine, the two health care choices were:
RunKeeper, which “maps your route out as you run, letting you review your distance, pace and other data points along the way. You can share your achievements on various social networking sites, and the app integrates with a whole host of other fitness apps and services to boot.”
Health Diet & Grocery Food Scanner: If you’re on a specific diet, this barcode-scanning app will let you know how well certain food items jive with what you’re trying to accomplish.”
It’s hard for some in healthcare to imagine that only two of the many thousand new apps released in 2013 made the TIME Magazine grade, as reflected in the mhealthnews retort.
If you have used these particular apps or found any mHealth apps particularly useful for yourself or clients/patients, please post them in the comment box below for us all to consider.
