CAN YOU TRUST ALL HEALTH APPS?

Not all mHealth apps have the same level of accuracy. Recognizing different levels of trustworthiness within health apps is imperative.

Data Protection

Only 30.5% have a privacy policy. Some apps send personal information over the Internet without encryption. Data protection is a major challenge, even more for the ones processing health personal data

Scientific Evidence

The potential misinformation that could be distributed via an app is a public health concern. The majority of health apps lack proper source information or any mention of the medical team responsible for the app.

Content Relevance

The majority of health applications are not updated often enough to keep medical content up to date, but are still available for users. This means that users can rely on information which is possibly too outdated to make good health decisions
