The mobile health industry has been heating up for years with no signs of slowing down. With over 165,000 health and wellness-related apps available, it’s hard to separate what’s trendy and well designed from the change-making
AirStrip ONE is an FDA-approved diagnostic aid that delivers patient data from medical devices, electronic medical records, and patient monitors to clinicians all in a single view on their smartphone or tablet. One of the biggest benefits is the app's holistic patient view, which also offers view customization based on what individual clinicians care about most.
If a doctor’s specialty is cardiology, for example, they’ll be able to filter the clinical data that matters to the cardiology team the most. This allows for a focused view without sacrificing other relevant patient data that another member of a patient’s care team may need. The app's view customization functionality has proven to be a game changer for care teams, improving adoption rates, long-term use, and the efficiency of clinicians using the app.

The Happify app helps people take control of their emotional well-being. It offers digital behavior change solutions to help address the challenges of stress, anxiety, and depressive symptoms.

For people who think mindfulness and building greater resilience to negativity can’t be achieved by using a mobile app, here’s a powerful outcome: Within the first two months of use, 86% of people who use Happify regularly report feeling better about their lives.
