REV­O­LU­TION OF HEALTH AP­PLI­CA­TIONS

21 st Cen­tury has been shaped up as one of the big­gest era for health­care tech­nol­ogy ever, with in­no­va­tions in med­i­cal de­vices, soft­ware, and changes in how health­care is ad­min­is­tered, both from a care and fi­nan­cial per­spec­tive.

At­trib­uted to the grow­ing adop­tion of var­i­ous health­care IT so­lu­tions by health­care providers in or­der to meet the height­ened reg­u­la­tory re­quire­ments for pa­tient care and safety, in­creas­ing need to cur­tail the soar­ing health­care costs, and grow­ing need to im­prove the qual­ity of health­care while main­tain­ing the op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency of health­care or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Here are some of the top health­care ap­pli­ca­tions 1. My Dawa APP

2. My Cir­cles APP

My Cy­cles is a pe­riod tracker that leans more to­wards the “I want to con­ceive, can this app help me?” side of the spec­trum. If that’s your chief con­cern right now, then My Cy­cles is the app for you.

It starts with the ba­sic pe­riod track­ing fea­tures. You record ev­ery first day of a pe­riod and write quickly down daily notes that cat­a­log your changes in mood, symp­toms, med­i­ca­tions, and treat­ments, weight and so on.

“TECH WILL TRANS­FORM FROM SOME­THING WE AC­TIVELY USE TO A MORE SEAM­LESS IN­TE­GRATED EX­PE­RI­ENCE THAT IS ON ALL THE TIME” DANIEL BAEK

It might seem like a lot at first, but the more in­for­ma­tion you record, the more ac­cu­rate the other fea­tures will be.

My Cy­cles uses this in­for­ma­tion to help no­tify you of your most fer­tile days and pre­dict when those days will ar­rive. The pre­dic­tions stretch ahead as far as 12 pe­ri­ods. Your data can be backed up on­line and you can even ac­cess that data from any com­puter that has In­ter­net ac­cess. But what good is data if you can’t make sense of it? My Cy­cles uses a clean and in­tu­itive in­ter­face with vir­tu­ally no learn­ing curve.
