A lot of people seem to think so. The most recent report, abstracted by research2guidance entitled “Global Mobile Health Market Report 2010-2015” was reported at mHealth Summit last week. We also heard the same theme when we presented at mHealth in San Diego, last month.
The statistics are amazing, and all point to the same message: we are all mobile creatures and would rather not be on a leash. Research2guidance estimates that 500 million people will be using smartphones in various ways for health care. These range from continuing medical education to unique monitoring devices.
We at ClickCare would caution, however, that the right tool, at the right time, at the right price should be used. We could not be more enthusiastic about iClickCare and the iPhone, we also know that sitting quietly at a large, easy to read computer screen can be as valuable as taking and sending a secure message and photo/video with the iPhone. That is why we have both available and included with each subscription.
Similarly, one can subscribe either via download from the App Store, or from our website ClickCare.com . A free two week trial lets you start collaborating with your colleagues immediately–with an iPhone, with a desktop, with a laptop or iPad.
Use a needle to sew a laceration or a shirt. Use a sledgehammer to crush a rock.
Use your ClickCare subscription in the way that is best for you at a particular time and in a particular place.
We look forward to your comments.
