Taking health apps beyond the well-heeled

Dear Colleagues:

Yesterday, NPR broadcasted a piece by Barbara Feder Ostrov, The Challenge of Taking Health Apps Beyond the Well-Heeled.  She describes the disconnect between the people who need the most help and the technology apps designed to help them.  What do you think?  How do your students access health information?

E-health and M-health : Health Literacy, Technology and Learning

Health literacy and Technology and Learning Colleagues,

Mobile technology has entered the world of healthcare over the past few years, and it appears likely that the mobile technology trend in health care will continue to accelerate. For example, see this article on "e-health" and "m-health" http://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/news-room/content/20150701STO72927/html/Health-literacy-how-technology-can-help-to-empower-patients

CommunicateHealth to Host First-Ever Health Literacy Hackathon!

Almost 90% of adults struggle with complex health information. This is because most health information is presented in ways that make it hard to understand and use. People of color, older adults, and people with poor health status struggle the most with finding and understanding health information. It doesn't have to be this way! Health information should be understandable, accessible, and convenient.
