In mobile marketplaces like the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, there are thousands of apps that help track or care for personal health. And by and large, consumers have been big fans of these apps. According to an estimate from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), more than 500 million smartphone users are actively using a health care-related application. And, according to the FDA's projections, more than 1.5 billion smartphone users will have downloaded a mobile health app by 2018. While these apps may enable users to take better care of their personal health, because they are designed for use by a mass audience, they often lack the personalization and one-on-one experience that health care typically requires.
