The complex of mobile technical means for healthcare (mHealth) creates comfortable conditions for patients. How do mHealth apps and devices do it?

WHAT IS MHEALTH?

mHealth is a complex of mobile technical means for healthcare created by the interaction of technical, informational and human resources.
The most common type of mHealth that most users have encountered are fitness and telemedicine programs. Thus, mHealth can be roughly divided into two categories:
  1. Med is a mobile technical complex aimed at healthcare. Supporting people during illness and providing advice and other assistance. Examples of Med directions: telemedicine, EMR and EHR systems, etc.
  2. Fit is a mobile technical complex aimed at sports and support for a healthy lifestyle. Examples of Fit are: business apps, fitness bracelets, etc.
Mhealth telemedicine and fitness apps
Many countries of the world began to develop technological means back in the 90s. At that time, such applications were seen as a means of supporting hospitals, which can ease the work and burden on the medical staff.
Now many types of mobile technical complexes (mHealth) are an integral part of the health care system and people's lives. The development of mHealt has been gaining momentum in the last decade thanks to the expansion of smartphone capabilities. After 2020, the level of trust and technical equipment attracted massive attention to mHealt, increasing their consumer appeal. At the moment mHealt is one of the actively developing industries in healthcare and the world.

Currently, there is a process of integration of mHealt clinics working in real life and telemedicine. This is due to the following factors:
  1. The problem of earning clinics with the help of telemedicine is being solved. Indeed, a larger number of patients can go to the doctors of the clinic even if they cannot get to them.
  2. The state problem of the availability of medical care for all segments of the population is being solved. Not all people have health insurance that can pay for medical expenses. Even more acute is the problem of the availability of certain regions of people's lives, for the provision of high-quality medical care. Telemedicine solves this problem in the consulting sense.
  3. Availability of medicines. Many people need medication on an ongoing basis: patients with diabetes, cancer, etc. And if the categories of severe patients, writing prescriptions for medicines on an ongoing basis, is a normal practice, then we will twist the gallbladder, headaches, etc. It is not that simple. Telemedicine is capable of making it easier to obtain a prescription for medicines when diagnosed.
Fit - The industry uses apps and devices to track exercise, sleep, heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and many other vital signs. The entire Fit industry is committed to supporting healthy lifestyles and preventing potential illnesses in humans, which will force them to turn to the Med industry. mHealt brings the following benefits to these industries:

The capabilities of the mHealt Fit industry every year expand the functional methods of analyzing user actions and are configured to integrate with a large number of mHealt devices and applications, such as:
  1. Clinic applications in real life
  2. Integration with stationary and implantable devices
  3. Integration with telemedicine
For all these industries, Fit acts as a tool through which it is possible to collect various data about the patient, which will facilitate the diagnosis.
