Re: healthcare apps
@clrmoney - They could be really useful for caregivers, especially if the patient or family member has a way to send the alert in a manner that could just be the push of a button. This would be even signficantly easier than calling 911, which involes the answering of a number of questions that might be difficult. If the caregiver receives an alert that tells them specifically who is in need of the help, they don't need to know where the address is, they likely already know, and can work on getting and giving the help needed.

Healthcare apps
One reason the healthcare industry is not embrassing healthcare apps as quickly as other industries is because they provide real-time critical services and cannot risk the time needed to convert to another system, risk any downtime or time needed to train employees on new systems because they are overworked and understaffed.

They know they need the apps but can't find the time to implement them.

We have to pursue change--that's our challenge.   We can and need to overcome.

Re: Apps
@mpouraryan, points noted, and we will see if change is possible and comes about.  In the mean time, the demand for connected healthcare apps is a positive sign.

Re: Apps
On this, we will agree to disagree because when we're faced with increased premium costs, increased overall healthcare costs, things have to change and so far I see none....

Re: Apps
@mpouraryan, no, actually I respectfully disagree.  If we are dealing with healthcare, that is where there is great opportunity for the consumer (through healthcare apps - as this blog reveals) to be the true customer and the markets to form around the new connections with the consumer.  That may actually drive a positive standard to connect with the customer.

There is hope yet.

Re: Apps
Understood--the question is then who will be left standing once this shakedown in effect occurs?    It is clear that the ordinary user (us) seems to be left out in the process and the human element continues to be discounted consistently.

Re: Apps
@mpouraryan, only my opinion mind you - that is where multiple vendors created a platform for open standards and interoperability that served industry and was adopted by industry itself.

That is also the case where vendors were responding to a somewhat developed IT market.  Healthcare is not just playing to a connecting point for developed technologies, many providers are still adopting to the entire concept of digitilization.
