Mobile Health Apps, Part 3: On the Cutting Edge
By Pam Baker
The third installment on the future of healthcare mobile apps in TechNewsWorld cites groundbreaking existing applications, capable of determining cancer or eliminating the need for surgical procedures. “”While there is already a number of mobile applications for doctors, the real transformation of healthcare lies not in better doctoring but in better partnering between doctors and patients,” Girish Nair, vice president of business development at DataArt, told TechNewsWorld. "We think centralizing the administration and decentralizing care is the key to success. And by decentralizing of care, we refer to remote care. Remote medical care isn't only about delivering a diagnosis -- it's about delivering information and thus control of health decisions and related costs to the patient."
