What's Happening Now

I was very excited to read everybody’s comments as I had written a paper about medical apps a month and a half ago. I did a quick Amazon and Google apps search for medical records apps and did not find anything significant. I would recommend attaching healthcare apps to personal exercise apps and as to confidentiality. I think different generations have different attitudes towards medical confidentiality. Maybe it’s just a generation speaking. I would recommend having a confidentiality lever on the apps so that individuals could choose how liberal they wanted to be with their own medical information. I think having an application available on Amazon apps and Google apps would enhance advertising the program as people start questioning what is all about. I would like to command whoever’s in charge of this website. It is very well done.

There seems to be a possible correlation between exercising and decreased PTSD symptoms. When soldiers are discharged from the military they are usually given a physical and a last PT test (physical training test).
Giving discharged soldiers an app for recommended exercise monitoring and routines for after they are discharged would be relatively easy as many of these kinds of apps are online already. Connecting the app to AKO (Army knowledge online) and connecting it to DTMS (which is where soldiers can see their physical training exercise scores online) would give a discharged soldier a continuation of their exercise records and possibly routine after they were discharged.
If soldiers during the discharge process were sat down in front of a computer to download a personal app which… more »

The app would also be a link to soldiers/veteran “ blue button” which when visiting their veterans clinic could be downloaded (giving the information, the individual soldier/veteran inputted) to the clinician for possible evaluation.
I believe this process would enable researchers and help veterans.
As we are talking only about exercise routines having this information online would not be controversial and relatively easy to pass.

Creating a common protocol for fitness apps such as calorie counter by myfitnesspal, weight watchers mobile apps and many other apps, that could be easily viewed and sent to medical providers and researchers would be a noncontroversial beginning to give medical institutions familiarity with the process of patient inputted information.

Thinking linearly as to 1st, 2nd, 3rd step can be counterproductive in organizational development. The thrust of my argument is creating momentum, so when quality formats for patient inputted information is created; clientele, patients and clinicians will be accustomed to getting and giving information from different assortments of devices and methods.

Think of a Gantt chart in project management where different phases run concurrently. Also, as more individuals transfer information back and forth to their medical institutions a clearer picture of what people actually want will emerge.
