There are more and more health and medical apps for the consumer / patient available everyday. There are also many that wind up and fail everyday too. Many of them claim to empower patients and provide a ground breaking revelation in healthcare. Many don't.... The area of patient apps will continue to be under scrutiny for greater regulation, and the pressure is on Doctors to start seriously considering patient apps / at home solutions as part of their ongoing care plans. What are some of the best patient apps you've seen or used to manage your own healthcare information?
Even though interoperability being a bit "hit and miss" in Aussie healthcare, Doctors still need different systems to speak to each other to allow them to not just do their job faster or cheaper, but also to give them the right info so they can deliver better patient outcomes.

In Australia we have a few options for cloud based Practice Management Systems. Take up for these platforms has been slow... will it pick up in 2020 with greater acceptance of modern tech in the GP space? There are a few players who have made a bit of noise of late:
- Clinic to Cloud
- Gentu by Genie
- Healix by Medical Director
- and the long anticipated Titanium by Best Practice due for release in 2020 Which have you used? Which one takes the cake? Will we see a greater uptake on these platforms next year? What do you think?
