Health apps are important for several reasons. First, they can help users lead healthier lives by enabling them to access information on a wide range of health-related topics, such as diet, exercise, and self-care. They can also provide tools to track and monitor important aspects of health, such as blood pressure and heart rate.
In addition, many health applications offer the possibility to connect with health professionals, which can be especially useful for people living in remote areas or who have difficulty accessing health care in the traditional way.
A health app can contain:
- Information on diseases and medical conditions
- Tips on nutrition and exercise
- Tools to track and monitor important aspects of health
- Connectivity with health professionals
- Reminders to take medication
Other factors to be considered and which are essential are:
- Technology: Native or hybrid?
- Usability: The importance of UX/UI
- Infrastructure Dimensioning: Avoiding Server Downtime
- Sensitive Data Management: General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- QA: Ensuring the quality of the App
- App maintenance and support
