The use of digital health technologies and social media has transformed the exchange of healthcare data, with mobile apps monitoring everything from blood sugar to medication adherence, and text-based reminders urging smokers not to give into that craving. This infographic also presents data on the role of search engines in healthcare research, how social media creates more engaged and aware patients, and how digital healthcare is affecting today's industry.
The fact is today’s mobile, social and search trends are indicative of the growing role digital connectivity plays in our lives. These three items have a profound impact on how health consumers find you online, research and evaluate treatment options, and take that critical step from being consumers to patients.
The European Commission launched a new application called #mHealth, which allows #mobile devices to monitor and collect data more efficiently. mHealth can be used on mobile devices, "Personal Digital Assistants", smart watches and other body-worn devices or implants.
