3G Apps in mHealth targeting Mental Health

Posted by TeamPC on 1 Oct 2010

Tomorrow’s online experiences have expanded beyond the traditional, browser-based portals to include social media and then expanded again to included the latest mobile devices.

The 3G network has enabled mobile applications to capture the imagination of many and created unprecedented excitement across many industries. The numbers are amazing; with 2.5
billion apps available to download in 2009 and 4.5 billion apps expected to be available to download in 2010.

One area of opportunity is Mobile health or mHealth. This is the use of IT and mobile telecommunications to monitor patients remotely, and could help governments, healthcare providers and healthcare commisioners reduce costs related to chronic diseases and improve the quality of life of their patients. mHealth applications include the use of mobile devices in collecting community and clinical health data, delivery of healthcare information to practitioners, researchers, and patients, real-time monitoring of patient vital signs, and direct provision of care via mobile telemedicine.

Following on from the IAPT communications campaign, Perfect Circle is working with a group of leading nationally recognised academic professionals within Psychology, Mental Health and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to develop a range of 3G apps that will help those suffering from mental health issues.
