Intelligence Driven Curation™
Shaped by ScienceToday, there are over 165,000 mHealth apps and that number continues to climb at a rapid pace. This incredible volume of apps and pace of mHealth apps entering the market has left Healthcare Sponsors (healthcare providers, health promotion organizations, and insurance providers) and consumers lost in an unregulated sea of apps, unable to effectively navigate which apps fit their interests and meet their needs and uncertain as to each app’s quality, privacy and security standards, scientific rigor and evidence of benefit.
Healthcare Sponsors need guidance on identifying apps that are effective, provide accurate information, and are user-friendly. Physicians want to be able to guide the recommendation of mHealth apps as part of a patient’s treatment plan and part of their health promotion services they provide to all patients.
SocialWellth’s next generation mHealth app curation process incorporates a rigorous methodology to ensure consumers get the best of breed apps based on their unique needs. All apps are evaluated and ranked through our App Curation Usability and Testing (ACUT) review process. A critical component of this ACUT review is the Adaptive Privacy and Security (APS) scan. The APS scan involves a deep analysis to confirm mobile health apps meet the privacy and security standards and safeguard consumer information. Apps that meet our ACUT review criteria are further evaluated through our patent pending Intelligence Driven CurationTM (IDC) – a Smarter Experience Creation Framework leveraging behavioral, clinical science, design science and data science combined with digital security best practices and professional usability insights to deliver an optimal consumer digital health experience. Apps that meet our IDC review obtain our mWellth® Certification seal.
SocialWellth’s Intelligence Driven Curation is further enhanced by the Xcertia Guidelines – a set of criteria shaped by science and based on broad representation from the healthcare industry, academia, and various regulatory bodies. Collectively they represent a trusted source in enabling healthcare sponsors, providers and consumers to determine which apps are best for their specific situations.SocialWellth’s curation services multidisciplinary team of behavioral scientists, clinicians, exercise physiologists, nutritionists and public health specialists identify, evaluate, and curate best-in-class mHealth apps to help deliver the most relevant apps for healthcare sponsors and consumers.
