Has Your Doctor Prescribed a Mobile Health App?

There's an interesting conversation over at WEGO Health about physicians who prescribe mobile health apps for patients. The discussion is titled, "Has Your Doctor Prescribed a Mobile Health App?"

Does your doctor know which mobile apps could help you with disease self management? Does your doctor know which mobile apps you should be using? Whether you have migraines or diabetes, perhaps there are mobile apps that can help you manage your health condition.

Physicians and other health care professionals should be familiar with mobile apps that patients may be using. After all, there could be an app that has misleading or incorrect health information.

  1. "after all" ultimately the responsibility falls on the provider for the App they prescribe.
