Health apps for the iPhone

Iphoneapple

US News and World Report has a useful story listing five health widgets for the iPhone.

  1. Absolute Fitness. For $14.95, users can keep a food and exercise diary, monitor nutrition and weight goals,
    and track and graph health metrics, including cholesterol, calories, saturated fat, and sodium.
  2. Quitter. Is a program to help smokers kick the habit.
  3. ICE. This In Case of an Emergency card lets you enter emergency contacts, medical conditions and any allergies.
  4. iScale. Is another food diary feature.
  5. Kenkou. It means "health" in Japanese and lets users keep track personal health and wellness data. The authors notes it’s particularly useful for diabetics.

These are mostly what I’d call consumer apps. ActiveStrategy, inc. is releasing an iPhone application that lets hospital exec or workers look at quality, safety, flow, financial and other metrics (and projects) and improvement status on scorecards via the iPhone: http://www.activestrategy.com/events_and_news/press_releases/050108.aspx

Chicago Tribune article is pretty good. I also did a post on the topic which you’ll find here:

The AppStore and the health & wellness section is definitely worth checking out. Quite elegant and when was the last time you saw a consumer review of a personal health application?
