An app (short for “application”) typically refers to a special type of software program used on a smartphone or mobile device such as the Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, or iPad. Most smartphone and mobile device users have a variety of messaging, music, social, and ride-sharing apps on their phones and devices. As a matter of fact, almost 150 billion apps were downloaded worldwide in 2016, almost 200 billion were downloaded in 2017, and forecasters project that over 350 billion apps will be downloaded in 2021!
Mobile Apps for all Your Healthcare Needs
Aware of consumers’ increasing demand for constant communication, the healthcare industry has turned its focus to providing a variety of mobile healthcare apps. You can find a variety of health apps available for download and/or purchase in multiple app stores. From tracking your workouts to providing medication reminders, mobile healthcare apps are also quickly becoming a regular part of our everyday lives.
The Ultimate Mobile Healthcare App: EASE
The EASE app provides the ultimate in communication between patients, health care providers, and patients’ loved ones. With EASE, medical professionals are able to provide real-time text messages, picture, and short video clips from the operating room directly to their patients’ friends’ and family members’ smartphones—anywhere in the world! The EASE app reduces anxiety, keeps loved ones informed, and creates an unparalleled level of inclusion and transparency that has never been seen before in medicine.
A Healthcare App with High Grade Security: EASE
We tell the stories of our lives through pictures and videos on social media, but safety and security of personal information is a top concern for both patients and health care providers. That is why it’s crucial to only trust your information and communication to a secure platform. EASE abides by the same health care regulations that hospitals and medical facilities use to keep health information protected—HIPAA/HITECH and 256-bit encryption (the same level of security used by banks and credit card companies). Plus, just like the popular photo-sharing app Snapchat, once a picture or video is received, it can be viewed for 60 seconds before the update disappears with nothing being stored on either the sending or receiving devices.
EASE is currently being used by hospitals across the United States to provide transparency, increase patient engagement, and improve satisfaction. For more information, visit http://www.easeapplications.com.
