Online PR News – 06-February-2015 – Spain – mHealth or mobile health has been in the spotlight since a few years for its great potential to transform healthcare and increase its quality and efficiency. The use of mobile devices for different health apps, including very basic channels such as SMS & USSD based solutions, can contribute greatly to the empowerment of patients especially in developing countries. It can increase the awareness and prevention for the population and offer self-assessment and monitoring solutions to help them live more actively and independently.

Many people just need simple health tips to learn what is good for them and what should be avoided to have a healthier and happier life. Keeping it simple and interactive is what works best in many cases and we have come up with an integrated solution for businesses and created a holistic marketplace for patients & caretakers.” added Mr. Lozano.
