Optimal usage of the mobile channel can drastically improve the quality, accuracy and accessibility of care for everyone. Studies have shown that millions of dollars can/have been saved through smart usage of mobile voice, text and data services, often with faster and better results. The increasing demand for personalised care and the call for more patient empowerment ask for a structural paradigm shift in healthcare. Mobile services can offer an important contribution to the realisation of a care continuum where patients really are in the hotspot.
Mobile internet is widespread and the usage of mobile internet grows exponentially. Moreover, the mobile channel offers specific features of push messaging and location based services. Together with an endless variety of connected sensors, this makes the smartphone an ultimate tool for care, fitness and wellbeing applications. The mobile phone as the internet platform: always on, always with you.
The Mobilehealth Foundation managed the first two SweetMotion projects.
