With over 10,000 medical apps available today, only 28 percent of smartphone users have reported to be very satisfied with the overall mHealth app quality and experience, according to a new infographic by Vigyanix.

The infographic details the components of a successful mHealth app and the pitfalls to avoid.

Despite reimbursement challenges, the healthcare industry is charged up about remote patient monitoring to manage chronic illness: two-thirds of respondents to HIN’s 2015 Telehealth and Telemedicine survey monitor high-risk patients in this fashion.
