Medical information is now portable, personalized, and participatory, allowing patients to get more involved in the healthcare process. Among the drivers of this increased patient involvement is open access to medical information, which is positively impacting consumers’ ability to process information. Here’s Sam Nachbar’s apps to watch for Healthcare consumers.

Pillbox

The app sends reminders accompanied by a visual representation of the pill to keep users on track with their medications. Pillbox and other types of virtual health assistants are reducing errors while helping doctors and patients stay in touch and monitor healthcare needs.

Polka Health

By keeping a shared log of health information, Polka Personal Health users build a mobile medical profile that offers health reminders and communicates critical health information. The users’ health profile is secure, since it can only be accessed by individuals the user authorizes (doctors, family members, experts), and the application is great for tracking and managing valuable health information.

Allscripts Remote™

Since providers are already accessing patients’ health records online, the stage is set for mobile health management. A number of apps already offer personal health records (PHRs), including: Allscripts, CareTools iChart, motionPHR, and Pain Care. While the mobile PHR segment is attracting new entrants, these emerging apps are not always helping patients interact with physicans. When implemented well, electronic medical records will shorten evaluation cycles and enhance consumer’s ability to control costs in ways that do not weaken quality.
