The ubiquitous mobile phone can play a big part in helping you managing your health: "A surprisingly large number of medical complications arise due to the patient failing to correctly follow prescription, failing to take medicine on time, forgetting to buy refills, altering doses. This “non-adherence” (as the doctors call it ) to the prescribed treatment leads to increase in hospitalizations as well. The underlying cause of this behaviour may be a hot topic for the research fraternity to ponder upon but one thing is certain, having some device to keep track and remind all these activities for you would definitely be a big big help!. The ubiquitous mobile phone can play a big part in helping you manage your health."
Even though India is an IT powerhouse and has thousands of doctors ( and millions of patients ! ) , there are surprisingly few innovative healthcare services being developed here. Yos Technologies , a company in which I am an investor, is a recent entrant in this space !
