mHealth App Development: Future Perspectives

Today, digital technology has become an integral part of our health care industry. As the use of smartphones is increasing worldwide, mHealth app development is now a fundamental aspect of digital health.

Nowadays, patients have multiple opportunities to get faster and cheaper health services due to digital technologies. In this article, we will examine the current state of the mHealth market and look at the future perspectives for mHealth app development.

What Is mHealth?

mHealth (or mobile health) is the integration of mobile technology with healthcare. It enhances communication between doctors and patients, provides quick access to medical data, monitors diseases, and more. Mindbowser’s mHealth apps significantly improve patient experience and make healthcare services more accessible.

Advantages Of mHealth App Development Applications

Mindbowser’s mHealth app developers build healthcare applications with several benefits, for both doctors and patients. The convenience and connectivity that mHealth provides have the potential to improve quality of life when used appropriately.

E-patient portal apps and mHealth apps can facilitate research and communication. Doctors can now prescribe wearables and apps to track medication adherence and treatment. With refined video and audio capabilities, mHealth apps and programs can aid people with disabilities or users in remote locations to access medical care at their ease. Further, apps can increase a company’s reputation and revenue.

  • Wellness management app development:

Wellness management applications and linked devices are one of the most popular mHealth apps in the market. When it comes to food intake, online libraries can help people choose healthy activities and meals.
Fascinatingly, clinical trials show that social media can increase user engagement. Thus, online support groups and help buttons have become important features in wellness app development.

  • Disease management app development:

From arthritis to cancer, disease management apps help users manage their symptoms, track drug intake, and log vital metrics. Apps and journals can be highly beneficial for medication compliance. Users can set reminders, scan medications, and also track side effects. Medication adherence also results in a decrease in hospitalization readmissions.

  • Mental health app development:

Mental health is yet another popular field of health app development and research. Mental health apps have the potential to enhance mental health treatment and reduce fatal outcomes. Since conditions, like autism and depression, are common, apps can be used to increase people’s learning skills and well-being.

However, app developers must consult experts to build products that can improve patients’ well-being. They should be easy to use and personalized.

  • Self-diagnosis app development:

Self-diagnosis is also a prominent area of healthcare app development. Self-diagnosis apps can decrease waiting times and remove commuting. Such apps can assist people in remote areas and resolve emergencies.

  • Rehabilitation app development:

Healthcare apps that track gait, posture, and motor skills are highly helpful, especially for older patients. For example, tablets can benefit stroke rehabilitation. Rehabilitation apps can also help patients with their daily chores. They can integrate exercises with videos and pictures, which can motivate and support patients.

mHealth App Development Challenges

Some of the substantial challenges related to mHealth app development are compliance with laws and regulations and privacy concerns. The 2016 survey of US Health Care consumers shows that users are worried that mHealth services can be of poor quality compared to physical visits. You can face multiple challenges while developing a mHealth app.

  • Building trust:

Although mHealth apps can benefit the patient experience and the healthcare system, there is a lack of patient trust. Patients are usually worried about the quality of healthcare services and the security of their medical data. These concerns result in a lack of trust. Thus, filling the trust gap is important for the use of mHealth apps.

  • Security and Privacy:

Even though digital transformation has lots of benefits for multiple industries, it also makes them vulnerable to cyberattacks. Thus, to prevent breaches of personal and medical data, mHealth apps should focus more on technologies and tools that enforce data security.

  • Healthcare legislation compliance:

Countries have regulations that protect personal health data. A mHealth app handling sensitive data should comply with the regulations of the country where your users live. For example, in the US, mHealth apps should comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Mindbowser has experience with HIPAA compliance leading the way on how health data is collected, stored, and used.
