Notifications Can Make or Break Your Health App
Health apps have become an essential part of our lives. They help us treat our conditions more effectively, live a healthy life style and avoid potentially dangerous situations like contracting a virus. Health apps may send notifications such as doctor appointment reminders, medication intake reminders, or virus exposure notifications.
However, if not used properly, health app notifications can do more harm than good. For instance:
- Too many notifications
- Incorrect and badly times notifications.
Additionally, there could be legal issue. Health apps need to follow numerous kinds of regulations related to personal health information (PHI), medical devices and digital technology. PHI protection is at the core of every regulation. If a health app sends a user a notification that includes information about their condition and someone sees it, this could spell trouble. The following are some of the important steps to take to ensure app’s notifications don’t embarrass users:
- Force users to opt in to get notifications instead of showing them by default
- Never include PHI in push notifications
- Put users in control of notifications by providing rich settings.
EliNext offers solutions for those developers who find it challenging to enable safe and effective applications.
