Txtalert- An efficient Health mobile application

Posted Dec 04 2008 6:04am
Txtalert is an example of truely positive use of mobile phones in the Healthcare sector.

The concept is to help patients and physicians to handle with the obstacles concerning long term treatments in HIV positive patients.

Txtalert uses text message reminders to improve the health of HIV positive people, by reminding them when they need to go for their next visit to the clinic. Apart from notifying patients of their upcoming appointments, TxtAlert also requests that they reschedule if they are unable to attend.

Seems simple but for my opinion simple and smart . This is an example how we can use the technology that is actually in our hands for accelerating "Advanced Medicine" and empower the "Patient- Physician" connection.Thats what Health 2.0 is about, or mostly about.

Txtalerts is just an example for being simple, creative and thinking usability in the aspect of technology and Healthcare.
