The use of mobile technology in the healthcare industry has exploded in the last ten years. Mobile health or mHealth, provides an entire new aspect of the relationship between patients and their doctors and other medical providers. Mobile devices place important and critical information into a medical professional’s hands in real-time. Doctors can monitor a patient’s condition more frequently, allowing them to make better and more informed decisions and diagnoses.
As consumers utilize smartphones, tablets, and other devices for other functions like social media and email, they are starting to look at these features to assist them with their healthcare. Mobile body area network devices will be a growing trend in the coming years as a way to get patients engaged in their healthcare and also to give providers routine updates on the status of patients with chronic conditions. As DeGaspari (2014) indicates, these devices can lead to improved functionality for other devices used in hospitals, such as sensors for monitoring patients that might get up and wander or be a fall risk. Telemedicine will continue to grow as payers, providers, and patients all start to realize the mutual benefits that can be
Today, the company has built a powerful platform for home healthcare that integrates wearable, sensors, voice technology and intuitive mobile apps and desktop interfaces for patients monitoring system at home. In addition, CareKit Health allows complex patients with chronic diseases to receive high quality care at home that results in improving

The health care industry has become increasingly reliant on technology. From medical translation tools to mobile apps, these devices are helping healthcare institutions save money and improve patient treatment.
CareKit Health Hamilton, Ontario is a private company that supports the complete clinical and family care team to provide a high quality care with reducing cost, and ensuring timely interventions by its highly approachable mobile application that leverages the mobile technology. To complement the healthcare platform, the company has started a project named “CareKit Health Technology Prototype” that demonstrates the development of technology prototype for home care use. CareKit Health’s technology prototype is all about making a system prototype that is one of the ways for conducting Rapid Application Development (RAD). RAD is a collection of methodologies that incorporate special techniques and computer tools to speed up the analysis, design, and implementation phases in order to get some portion of the system development quickly into the hands of users for evaluation and feedback (Dennis, A. et al, 2012)
In the article “Like It Or Not, Personal Health Technology Is Getting Smarter,” Angus Chen states that personal health tracking devices are becoming more popular each year. The list of devices being creating is also growing, giving consumers more of a choice when coming to monitoring their health.
3) Home Health Care – While the pursuit of a home health care is to deliver a wide range of health and social services to chronically ill and disabled patients, however, utilizing the “design controls to avoid user errors and other device quality problems” is one of the driving forces behind the home healthcare push to adoption of electronic health records (Lewis 2001, p. 15). According to Lewis (2011), “design controls are the part of a quality system that requires manufactures to consider both human factors and the intended use environment during device design”
However, the “remote monitoring” that enables health professionals to monitor a pa-tient remotely using various technological devices (i.e., from AAL(Ambient Assisted Living ), telenursing, telephar-macy, etc.) is basically opening a new channel of services. These services were inexistent several years ago, but with the ageing of the population and the increasing in chronic patients this sort of services will grow and it will require more professionals to respond to the demand. Moreover, new sort of professionals, from specific medical informatics, health data analysts, AAL maintenance technicians to nurse specialists will emerge (Lapão
Wearable Technology is one of the many innovative devices used to achieve goals, manage money, and stay organized. Technology aims to create innovative ideas for not only these aspects, but to also help people become aware of their health. Starting in the year 2015, Ochsner Health System began asking entrepreneurs nationwide, to submit suggestions on possible wearable technology, that may ameliorate how patients monitor diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses. Ochsner's chief clinical transformation officer, Richard Milani, discovered Louisiana is fifth in the nation for rates of heart disease and diabetes. With a number so high ranked in the nation, Milani believes this makes Louisiana the ideal place for testing new technology,
Although CareKit Health Toronto, Canada has built a powerful platform for care coordination and home healthcare that integrates wearable, sensors, voice technology and intuitive mobile apps and desktop interfaces for patients, clinicians and healthcare administrators, the following are the successful metrics to precede our project’s service model:
This is to reflect on innovation-related technology in elderly care services ( ITECS). In these, as in other service sectors (Gallouj C. and F., 1996. Djellal F. et al, 2004), the target of innovation is extensively addressed in the literature. A new discipline even appeared which is called the "gerontechnology". This is also a particularly heterogeneous target, the main discriminating criteria are: 1- the location technology, 2- the object, 3- their nature. Indeed, some technologies are introduced in institutions (accommodation facilities, but also provider organizations)[figure 1], others in homes (including alternative homes provided by the hosting intermediate forms), in others these different locations at once. Some of them are designed to finally bring together the various entities (in the case of telematics, for example) (Rajkumar, Lee, Sha and Stankovic, 2010).
Technology has been growing very quickly and it just so happens that it has been a large part of our generation. Many Millennials are using technology in very positive ways. In a recent survey done by Sensis and ThinkNow Research, as many as 41% of white non-Hispanic consumers are most interested in purchasing wearable health tracker in the near future and roughly 32% of Hispanic Millennials said they have considered purchasing a health tracker (“Millennials Show Growing Interest in Health-Tracking Technology”). This recent survey really shows how using wearable health trackers can be a good encouragement for Millennials to get out and exercise on a daily basis. Many big companies have started to incorporate a lot more technology into their business. “The ability to work from multiple devices is expected by Millennials. This means the organization must leverage technology to
Abstract: The report gives an insight on the new and innovative technology – mHealth or mobile health. Our report first gives a brief introduction of two pages on the topic. The next section is divided into three parts – 1. Potential of mHealth, 2. Case study and examples and 3. Issues, barriers and our study of a mHealth application. In the end, we give a conclusion and future directions. The references are also provided at the end.
Healthcare sector is facing plethora of challenges ranging from poor infrastructure to population explosions, large masses of population shifting from rural to urban area etc. Traditional facilities makes user confined thus restricts user movement especially elderly people. Our goal is to increase medical efficiency and reduce burden on healthcare infrastructure. We intend to create a prototype of a self-sufficient health monitoring system which requires low investment for development and provide quality healthcare at the same time. For proposed system, Arduino Mega 2560 processor is used along with various sensors and data transmission system. Sensors used are accelerometer, body temperature, heart rate and Electrocardiogram which gives basic patient monitoring data. Attached LCD displays various health related parameters. Interactive mobile app is developed on android platform which displays parameters. Received data can be transmitted remotely for further analysis also help doctors monitor overall health of their patient remotely while transmission system ensures safety during critical times. Through our project, we want to bridge the gap between healthcare and technology and help the masses stay fit and healthy.
