Physicians have spoken: Not all mHealth apps are created equal. And in a new survey, docs confirmed this by submitting their recommendations for the top ranking mHealth apps available today. Here are the ones that came out on top.
The report, conducted by Palo Alto, Calif.-based HealthTap, surveyed nearly 600,000 physicians both in its network and in its referral network for their recommendations on a wide range of healthcare and wellness applications. And docs didn't hold anything back, ranking 100 of the top iOS and Android apps, that were further broken down into more specific categories, such as running and diabetes care.
The apps, as rated by physicians, are scored based on their ease of use; efficiency and medical accuracy; and validity and soundness.
