15 Mobile Apps that Will Matter in 2011 – PCWorld: “WellDoc DiabetesManager System
Using a smartphone app to monitor your health certainly makes sense, as you have your phone with you most of the time. But when an app goes beyond simply monitoring your health and delves into delivering actual medical advice, well, relying on an app could be dicey. That’s why the FDA has ruled that WellDoc’s DiabetesManager System, a smartphone app coming in 2011, must be treated as a medical device. It’s an important precedent, and the FDA’s move shows that there is plenty of potential for similar medical apps in the future.

Health disparities are a persistent problem worldwide. A major obstacle to reducing health disparities is reliance on “consumable interventions,” that is, interventions that, once used, cannot be used again. To reduce health disparities, interventions are required that can be used again and again without losing their therapeutic power, that can reach people even if local health care systems do not provide them with needed health care, and that can be shared globally without taking resources away from the populations where the interventions were developed.
This is the abstract only. Read the full article on the JMIR site. JMIR is the leading open access journal for eHealth and healthcare in the Internet age.
this is only one intervention which should be implemented to prevent and decrease disparities in healthcare. I wish we would be bold and “just do it” as Nike would say.
