[Extract] In my clinical practice, patients often show me information that comes from some form of self-monitoring device and computer technology, generally known as 'apps' (applications). As an 'early adopter' of technology, I find this trend to be interesting, but also relatively unguided, except by marketing material. For my professional development, I set out to learn more about how I can use apps to improve my clinical practice. I did so by attending a Royal Society of Medicine meeting in April 2016 in London, and then conducting a literature search on this topic. Here is a summary of the key current issues that I found needed to be considered when discussing healthcare apps with patients.
