What do patients and carers WANT from health apps?

The survey is being conducted by PatientView in collaboration with Health 2.0, with the input of relevant healthcare stakeholders (policy-makers, suppliers of apps and mobile services, and healthcare professionals).The results of the survey will be made public on November 10th-11th 2014 at the Health 2.0 conference in London, which attracts about 500 delegates. The 2014 conference is focusing on engaging the entrepreneurs who are behind the development of health apps. So, the results of this survey should go some way to providing valuable information to app developers about how to improve their apps to meet your needs.


The survey is open to anybody who is living with an illness or condition that lasts many years (or even a lifetime), and is also open to the carers of people living with an illness or condition that lasts many years (or even a lifetime).The survey is COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS AND CONFIDENTIAL.The survey is short, with only 10 main questions, and should probably take no more than 10-15 minutes of your time.As a survey participant, you can have a copy of the results emailed to you if you wish.

Health apps are software (computer programs) that can be downloaded onto smartphones or tablets, or, in some cases, accessed through the Web browser on your computer. Health apps aim to help people improve their health in various ways—for instance, by boosting their ability and motivation to exercise; by helping them manage their diet, or eat healthier foods; by providing them with a log to record their symptoms, blood pressure, diet, etc, for their doctor; by offering them information about their condition, etc.
