There are Mobile Medical apps popping up all over.  It is safe to say the medical industry is in a major mobile take over.

Both doctors and patients are finding that mobile apps can provide a fast and efficient way to stay in touch and exchange information.

  • Doctors are incorporating them into their practices to be more effective and efficient.
  • Patients are using them to monitor specific aspects of their health, fill in gaps in their medical care, and take more responsibility for their well-being.

The mobile health technology market–including devices, applications, and services–is expected to exceed $8 billion by 2018, according to research company GlobalData.

So it bears the question…

Should a private medical practice consider a Mobile APP?

To answer this question we need to understand four basic points:

  • The mobile phone has become a personal item to many people. Some in fact never have it further than 5 feet from their person at anytime in a 24 hour period.
  • 98% of all consumers now carry a smart mobile device and use it regularly.
  • Doctors like any other profession must compete for their patients.
  • Today’s insurance regulations, industry compliance have requirements for preventive medicine that can be easily resolved with a mobile app.
  • HIPAA and CE have specific restrictions and requirements on promotions, advertisements and even patient care.  A Mobile APP provides an answer to this concern.  (See Hippa and Mobile Technology Article)

Understanding these needs and restrictions makes advertising and marketing really expensive and difficult.  A mobile app for a medical office can help…

  • Reduce marketing expense to near zero.
  • Increase patient referrals to the medical office.
  • Facilitate preventive healthcare information (required under certain rules).
  • Increase administrative efficiency with customer patient forms.
  • Gain new patients without violating HIPPA rules.
  • Personalize the patient experience with the practice.

Medical examYes, a private medical practice should get its own mobile app, if nothing else to compete in today’s highly mobile society.
