A new report by IMS revealed that there were more than 40,000 so-called health apps available in the iTunes app store as of June 2013. But just having “cool apps” isn’t enough, says Andy Payne, Manager of European Operations, unless they aid in improving patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. “It’s really about functionality over style.” And since nearly 60% of Europeans already own a smartphones or tablet (a number that continues to rise), it makes good sense that they be able to use their devices to access their personal healthcare information. With this kind of mobile portability, patients have greater control over their healthcare and can collaborate more effectively with their clinicians.
At the upcoming Mobile Healthcare Congress and Expo in Utrecht on November 20 and 21, Payne and Cortney Nicolato, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, will be demonstrating the power of InstantPHR™ to attendees from around the world. Payne and Nicolato, who will be exhibiting alongside KPMG, are looking forward to showing attendees how patients will benefit from Get Real Health’s connected care platform. “This is a very exciting opportunity to show a wider audience in the Netherlands the power of InstantPHR™” says Payne.
