The MHealth apps developed at Vertiglo keep a few things in mind related to the article above. > The application has to be super functional for young and old > The article mentions the increase in use. It's imperative that security and layers on encryption for the data collected is in place before roll-out > Focusing on the core services can't be overstated.

This was evident with the Veterans app we are in beta testing. > The success should be customer centric Great job @Carrie_Vaughan Kim @vertiglo
