4 Recently Launched mHealth Apps

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

1. The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York released its Patient Itinerary app, allowing patients access to educational materials, a schedule of their hospital stays, reminders to take medications and entertainment. "The ultimate goal with our Patient Itinerary app is to provide a real-time snapshot of clinical care information to make the hospital stay less stressful — and to make our patients better informed — all towards ensuring a good health outcome for those in our care," said Kumar Chatani, CIO of Mount Sinai Health System, in a news release.

2. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched a clinical app for healthcare providers dealing with blast injuries, providing clinical guidance and recommendations during an emergency, such as information on treating special populations (i.e. pregnant women and children), managing hospital surge capacity, blast injury patterns and potential treatments and personal safety information.

3. The American Society of Echocardiography Foundation launched an updated version of its ECHO AUC app, a tool designed to help healthcare practitioners follow care guidelines when ordering cardiovascular imaging tests.

4. A nurse practitioner at the Emory University School of Nursing developed Pedia BP, an app for clinicians to simplify the process of detecting hypertension in children and adults.
