EHealth: The dawn of a new era in cardiovascular disease prevention and management

“Around 75% of the world’s inhabitants now have access to a mobile phone. Out of the estimated 6 billion phone subscriptions worldwide, 5 billion are in developing countries. Figures show there were over 30 billion app downloads worldwide in 2012, including a surge in the uptake of apps focused on education and information rather than entertainment.”

Next generation medicine will take up this opportunity for #eHealth/#mHealth and “enhance communication between patients and healthcare professionals, particularly in the field of cardiovascular disease (CVD). In order to ensure that apps are responsive to the needs of patients and healthcare professionals, experts say the development of best practices in the field is a priority.”

First-movers in the field are bringing health to populations traditionally underserved and enabling health and fitness in connected ways never before possible.
