Health Apps as a Drug

An article from the Economist

A quote from the Economist article titled, "A new sort of health app can do the job of drugs: Smartphones are increasingly delivering verified treatments for diabetes, addictions and ADHD":

"Unlike other sorts of digital health apps, digiceuticals have been tested for efficacy, approved by regulatory agencies such as the FDA and are prescribed by a doctor. Most gather data, either by asking patients for information or by using sensors, and provide real-time guidance. Diabetes apps, for instance, work with connected monitors and use the information to manage symptoms. Apps that help users to stop smoking combine a breath sensor with coaching on how to quit. Addiction-fighting apps can be based on cognitive behavioural therapy."
