Patientview has introduced ‘myhealthapps.net’, a new international website helping patients and public find the best health apps to suit their individual needs. It brings together healthcare apps that have been tried and tested by users. Its main objective is to give public, patients and carers a quick and easy way to find trusted apps to make a difference to your own health or help you support someone you care for. Each app is recommended by healthcare communities from all over the world, including empowered consumers, patients, carers, patient groups, charities and other not-for-profit organisations.
This network has been created in order to:
- highlight best practice in health app development
- highlight the unmet needs of public, patients and carers to app developers
- bridge the gap between public, patients and carers with app developers to improve the relevance, quality and health impact of apps
The result is the best healthcare apps, recommended by empowered consumers, patients and carers.
“Mobile health is one small, but important, part in our expanding efforts to help Europeans being healthier. I commend this effort to help guide the citizens looking for a good choice in health and wellbeing apps”. Robert Madelin - Director General, DG CONNECT, European Commission.
