Abstract

Technology has greatly improved healthcare. Research has shown that improved user experience can vastly increase the volume and quality of knowledge gained from the accessible resources. Electronic medical records have been mandated by the U.S. government transitioning the medical field to computer based applications with the goal of efficiency and meaningful use. From this vast data, the end user could potentially increase their healthcare understanding through a centralized mobile-platform that brings the expertise from medical professionals, smart health and well-being best practices, alternative medicine and social media such as crowd-sourcing materials. In this chapter, we present a mHealth solution incorporating the features of Pinterest in order to provide a single portal for the dissemination of healthcare information.
