The Mobile Health Blog

In a previous article, I discussed how to use our T2 Mood Tracker app in a clinical setting. This week, I want to focus on another of our popular apps, Breathe2Relax.

What it is

Not only do mHealth resources need to be engaging, factually accurate, and useful, they need to be usable. What is the difference between useful and usable you ask? Please allow me to step onto my soapbox.

Did you know that May is National Mental Health Month?

In the dream physician office, a kiosk is set up in the waiting room where patients complete a whole series of pre-visit assessments. I’m envisioning something like a validated diagnostic questionnaire pre-loaded into a tablet computer attached to a small stand outside the office door.

We here at T2 think that mobile health is the wave of the future. But, we also recognize that for many providers, the first hurdle is not in getting patients to use apps as part of their care – but in providers learning how to use their own devices in the first place!
