4 Recently Launched mHealth Apps

The following mHealth apps were recently launched and reported in the past week.

1. The Greater Detroit Area Health Council launched an app this week to help patients find low-cost or free hospitals and clinics in their area. The app was developed to help curb the overuse of emergency services.

2. Blackstone Valley Community Health Care in Pawtucket, R.I., launched an app allowing users to track their health over time. The app will collect data from wearables and users can input data such as weight, glucose levels and medication information. The data is stored in the cloud, so physicians can then download the information and enter it into the electronic medical record before meeting with patients.

3. GenieMD and San Diego-based Scripps Mercy Physician Partners collaborated to release myQcare.com, a health management solution app allowing patients to track and store health information and vitals, manage medications and receive reminders about health-related tasks. The app also connects patients to physicians in the Scripps physician network.

4. The new Medicast app is a "doctors-on-demand" service, connecting patients with physicians around the clock. Users can request physician visits, and the physicians make house calls to the patient's home, office or a hotel.
