Your Smartphone is the Future of Health [Infographic]

SmartHealth

Smartphones are already an irreplaceable part of our lives. We use them to keep track of our schedules, our social lives and business; but what about our health? Rock Health, along with health startup Greatist, has created this infographic to show the power of mobile healthcare.

Currently there are over 13,000 mobile medical apps, but consumers aren’t flocking to use them just yet. Chief Evangelist of Rock Health, Leslie Ziegler says, “There’s still a long way to go but it really has the power to impact people’s lives in a very meaningful way.”

Chief Research Officer at Greatist added to Ziegler’s thoughts by saying, “Mobile health isn’t a replacement for healthcare, it’s a supplement. These companies aren’t replacing doctors’ keen eye or experience, but the apps are just bettering communication between doctor and patient.”
