A Systematic Analysis of Quality of Mobile Medical Apps

Author: KAUSTUBH SERDESHMUKH, PRADEEP MANOHAR MURAGUNDI
Abstract: Patient medication adherence is a deface problem for health care providers and patients. To tackle this challenge digital health has paved the way through medical apps. The apps for patient medicine adherence remind a person to take his/her medication and potentially amalgamate all the medication-specific information of the users. The medical apps for the patient medication adherence were profiled on Google Play store and Apple App store. The medical apps for patient medicine adherence were profiled on Google Play store and Apple App store. The main objective of the study was to assess the medical apps using certain quality parameters. The apps were ranked based on the total quality parameter score obtained. The study found that 84.89% of the apps in Google Play store were rated 15.11% were unrated. In Apple App store, there were 4 apps under the rank I, 1 app under the rank II and 2 apps under the rank III. Whereas in Google Play store, there was 1 app each under the rank I & II, and 48 apps under the rank III. Through the systematic analysis of quality of mobile medical apps, it was found that there was only 1 app in Apple App store and 4 apps in Google Play store which were ranked as number I. This suggest that there should be more focus on the quality parameters of an app.
