Discussing self-tracking apps and devices on Twitter

On Wednesday, iMedicalApps held a tweet chat on mobile apps and devices for self-tracking diet and exercise. The chat was a kick-off to the #mHealth chats since the holidays. Some key points from the chat were:

  • Multiple devices currently are available with different preferences by users
  • Apps can be useful but can require a lot of time inputting information
  • Dietary info on some apps are lacking and could use more work
  • Need for standards on communication of what data collected by apps and devices is being used for
  • How to possibly increase adherence to apps and devices
