Mobile phones...more medical interfaces...still need training though...to help folks use some of these features....BD
San Francisco based Health Support Systems, (HSS) upgraded its "Health Monitor" online wellness and disease management portal. Users can now access Health Monitor from a mobile phone and receive alerts by SMS text messages.
For example, Health Monitor now allows a diabetic user to update his Sugar, BP or Lipid parameters from a web-enabled mobile phone (WML & XHTML are supported). The phone access also provides quick health profile reports, and allows medication and other reminders to be received by SMS text messages. Health Monitor indicates if the patient’s levels are out of range, and provides coaching on corrective action that can be taken.
