The use of healthcare apps has skyrocketed in the last five years. Based on Statista reports, the estimated mHealth market will hit 189 billion USD by 2025, with approximately 200 new healthcare apps being developed every day. The statistics are staggering, and we can assume that this number has enhanced substantially since the Covid-19 pandemic. 

In the digital age, we have the world at our fingertips. Access to endless information and data has become second nature to us. Healthcare apps for people with chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease provide data that change their lives for the better. Access to apps that track their daily numbers and progress allows patients and physicians to identify treatments better. 

Let’s cover and analyze the top healthcare apps that are going to make a mark in 2021! 

1. First Aid and Emergency Techniques

The first app on our list is First Aid and Emergency Techniques. As the name states, this mobile health app contains all the necessary information to provide first-aid assistance. Whether it’s care associated with burns or scrapes or assessing the extent of the distress, the app dispenses tutorials and instructions that could prevent the condition from worsening or even save lives.
