3 Mobile Apps to Help Cut the Fat
"So much of our health system is focused on the clinician and the doctor telling the patient what to do, but by using this technology it really centers all the decision making and puts the information in the patient's hands," said one of the researchers, Katherine Kim, a biology professor in residence at SF State's Health Equity Institute. "They get to decide what they do with it."
Christina Sabee, assistant professor of communication studies at SF State who's work focuses primarily on doctor-patient communication, believes that the use of technology has the potential to improve the entire healthcare system.
"Technology is something that we use every day, and to ignore it and try to get people to not use it seems counterintuitive," Sabee said.
