Health apps

Posted on April 3, 2012


I saw the best update I’ve seen on the types of health apps available.  CSPAN ran a show on BookTV by Eric Topol. If you’re interested in learning how to participate in your health — learn what it means to be a digitized patient.

To quote Topol’s web site, His “…research is on indvidualized medicine, using the genome and digital technologies to understand each person at the biologic, physiologic granular level to determine appropriate therapies and prevention.”

Medicine is behind the curve when it comes to our health.  We have to learn what’s available, get our medical records, test results and then take control of our exercise, nutrition and use our mobiles to learn how we are doing.  And, teach our doctors how to treat us as adults.
