Mobile Technology and Health Transformation
There’s a great article on TechCrunch, a popular technology blog, today about how the healthcare industry is slowly entering the mobile and smartphone platforms. Aside from just helping you find discounts on medications, The Coupon Doc is hoping to help educate you on how to stay healthy in general; in other words, preventative care.
If you own an iPhone or Android smart phone, chances are there are some great apps you can look into for everything from diet monitoring to fitness to diagnosing skin rashes. Keeping track of our daily health profiles can be a challenge, but mobile technology can certainly help. For example, if you have high cholesterol or type II diabetes, chances are that getting enough exercise is an important part of your life. Startups like AliveCor can help by turning your mobile device into a mobile heart monitor to see what your pulse is.
At The Coupon Doc we’re well aware that we all are using our mobile phones more and more in our daily lives, and are working hard to come up with a way to save you money on your medications when you’re on-the-go. Would a mobile coupon platform for medications help you? Or do you have another idea that you’d like to see in action? Let us know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
