New York, NY (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
Health care involves many factors that cause stress on overall finances, patient care and medical record observation. In the last century, technological innovations have played a major role in the way hospitals and medical professionals care for patients, often with improved results. However, according to a recent article from Bloomberg Businessweek, medical practitioners are seeking even further improvements in order to respond to the pressure to cut costs. Fortunately, the development of applications for mobile devices has allowed many doctors to address patient care more thoroughly and keep clear records. Federico Garza-Bueron, an investment specialist, notes that these tools will not only improve medical care, they will also grow to become a great opportunity for financial stimulus for interested investors.
The article refers to investment advice from financial expert, David Jahns. He notes that the aforementioned apps can provide doctors and nurses with vital statistics on patients at a distance and provide clear data to insurers. He comments on the upcoming impact of such technology: “We really have to improve our costs. The best thing that our country can do is invest in technology that gets better outcomes with fewer procedures.” Federico Garza-Bueron agrees with this statement and notes that interest from the US government also indicates the wider use of such devices.
While many of these applications are new and are in their preliminary phase, developers are improving them at a quick rate. According to the article, The Food and Drug Administration is considering setting forth stricter standards for the technology that are involved with the diagnosis and treatment of many illnesses. Guidelines have been released that are comparable the standards applied to other medical-devices that medical professionals trust. “The push from the FDA is not a sign that these apps are facing a challenge,” says Federico Garza-Bueron, “In fact, they show a promising potential in the device. The FDA believes in their success enough to set forth proper regulations, meaning that any investor can expect future growth.”
The article refers to many companies that produce medical applications, but one in particular has attracted the attention of celebrity and activist, Oprah Winfrey. Her company, Harpo Studios, is involved with a multimillion dollar investment for Sharecare – a social networking meets medical care mobile app. Federico Garza-Bueron sees this as promising, “Investors should look to Oprah as a trendsetter. She is a major voice and opinion-setter for consumers all over America, and her approval can indicate a massive success in mobile devices in the near future.
