Happtique CEO Ben Chodor on “Taming the Wild West of Healthcare Apps”

Posted on March 11, 2013 by in Apps, Health IT, News, Patient Empowerment

Health 2.0 luminary Matt Holt interviews Happtique CEO Ben Chodor for HIBC.tv at HIMSS 13 in New Orleans (March 7th, 2013).  Ben explains how Happtique curated and categorized almost 20,000 healthcare apps to a quite granular level (e.g., cardiac stent apps, glucose monitoring apps).  And he discusses Happtique’s new app certification process.  The hope is, he says, that one day when a doc prescribes a cholesterol-lowering drug, he or she will also prescribe a cholesterol-monitoring app to engage the patient and improve compliance.  Great vision.  Enjoy:
