Mobile Future

Your Phone, Your Health

Walking through the CTIA Convention, you get a sense as to how mobile apps are revolutionizing healthcare. Remember the scene in Casino Royale where a poisoned Daniel Craig goes to his car, hooks up a wireless link to MI-5, and gets treated for his heart attack?  For those at risk of real-life heart attacks, it looks like Hollywood is on to something.  

According to The San Francisco Chronicle

AT&T Inc. is introducing technology that lets patients monitor their heartbeat and automatically transfer the data to their cardiologists using Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones.

The service, offered by MedNet Healthcare Technologies, allows customers… to send the information to a central monitoring center, which then relays the information to their doctor.
