Hari Krishna Kotha

Abstract: In the dynamic landscape of modern healthcare, health apps, a subset of mobile health (mHealth), have emerged as transformative tools, promising users the ability to take control of their well-being. This study delves into the origin and impact of health apps, exploring their diverse functionalities, from emergency care guidance to mental health support. It critically examines their efficacy and addresses privacy and regulatory complexities concerns. Rather than conducting new experiments, the study synthesizes existing research, crafting a comprehensive narrative of health apps' past, present, and potential future. Real-world examples, such as contact tracing apps during the COVID-19 pandemic and patient monitoring apps like KardiaMobile, highlight their tangible impact. The study emphasizes key design features, acknowledging advantages and disadvantages, focusing on user caution and responsible usage. Recommendations include education for healthcare providers and enhanced data privacy measures. In conclusion, health apps signify a milestone in healthcare evolution, empowering individuals to manage their health effectively and reduce chronic disease risks. The abstract encapsulates the narrative, portraying health apps as catalysts for a healthier future through the fusion of technology and individual responsibility in healthcare.
