83 Revolutionary Healthcare Apps

From Hospital-Based Wearable Tech to Cancer-Screening Apps

— June 24, 2015 — Tech
The medical community has always been on the forefront of technology and that has subsequently led to a number of revolutionary healthcare apps. Not only do these apps help us when we are feeling sick or injured, but they also empower us to learn more about the way our bodies work. From female-focused app updates to sleep improvement apps, these mobile services help put advanced medical knowledge into the palm of our hands.

For everyday medical concerns, there are a number of apps that help us manage our health on a daily basis. For example, there are apps that remind us to stay hydrated throughout the day and apps that help us track our food intake. For more complex medical concerns, there are advanced apps that help users manage everything from back pain to diabetes.

However, medical apps are not simply limited to helping us with daily tasks. There are also a number of revolutionary healthcare apps that are designed to help us in emergency situations. There are several crowdsourced apps that can help alert users to community healthcare concerns as well as emergency medical issues. There are also apps that work in conjunction with other wearable devices to monitor things such as your heart rate, vision and even brain activity.
