Another excellent article by Nick Hunn at his Creative Connectivity blog reports on how mobiles could be the saviour of the NHS by enabling more remote monitoring to try and keep patients out of hospital.
“…beyond texting in you’re feeling ill to providing engaging and compelling applications that help to prevent us developing chronic diseases. The mobile industry is possibly the last chance to prevent the NHS going bankrupt and it needs to be spurred into action. The UK is an excellent testing ground for developing these applications. Let’s get behind the debate to persuade everyone that there is a better way to healthcare.”
Nick has also penned another fascinating article on Designing Consumer Medical Products where he discusses the need to reduce the cost of healthcare to the patient rather than just another way to generate money for the industry.
