 Mobile Apps Will Help Patients Stay Healthy, Lower Insurance Costs

Now smartphones and tablets will help health insurance customers (patients) make lifestyle changes and take charge of chronic health conditions, so that insurance companies have a healthier clientele to take care of.

It is expected that the step will ease the burden on the healthcare system, and help insurers and patients save money in the long run.

The mobile health revolution will bring in many new offerings, like finding network and service providers for patients, sending out relevant information on health conditions and wellness - from weight loss to asthma management, and healthy diet plans. This will affect patients' health directly and positively, said the American Medical Association.

Many US health insurance companies, like Aetna, WellPoint and UnitedHealth Group, already offer mobile apps that help members with all these and many other simple functions.
