The Mobile Health Blog

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!

Exercise, mental health days, proper nutrition – sure, providers know how to take care of themselves. The hard part is actually following through.

If you’re like most people, you primarily learn about and download apps from the two goliaths of the mobile app world: iTunes and Google Play.
