Crowdsourced Illness-Tracking Apps

This New Health App Tracks the Local Spread of Diseases

— June 18, 2015 — Lifestyle
'HEALTHYDAY' is a new health app that tracks the local spread of diseases in order to let you know if the people around you are getting sick. The app is designed by the McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and it helps to provide consumers with updates about the spread of illnesses in their community.

HEALTHYDAY works by filtering local health concerns and data gathered from trusted health sources such as doctors and hospitals. The app then cross-references this information with localized crowdsourced data. The result is a kind of public health map that shows you the geography of any illnesses in your community. The advanced capabilities of this app make HEALTHYDAY a useful tool for users to track the local spread of diseases and prepare for any illnesses that may be headed their way.
Trend Themes
1. Crowdsourced Illness Tracking - Crowdsourced data can help health professionals monitor the prevalence and spread of diseases in local communities in real-time.
2. Personalized Health Alerts - Apps that track and provide alerts about specific local health concerns can empower consumers to take proactive measures to stay healthy.
3. Integration of Reliable Health Data Sources - Apps that integrate trusted health sources such as doctors and hospitals along with crowdsourced data can provide the most accurate and comprehensive health information to users.
Industry Implications
1. Healthcare - The use of crowdsourced illness-tracking apps has the potential to revolutionize how healthcare professionals monitor and respond to disease outbreaks.
2. Mobile App Development - Mobile app developers can leverage the advanced data analytics and machine learning capabilities of crowdsourced illness-tracking apps to create new and innovative healthcare and wellness apps.
3. Public Health - Public health officials and organizations can use crowdsourced illness-tracking apps to gather real-time data on the spread of diseases and to reach targeted populations with health information and resources.
