December 2014 edition:
Trackers: How Technology is helping us Monitor & Improve our Health, my debut book, was published by Bateman Publishing. I became interested in health technology after being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in November 2007.
“… a must-read industry primer and a personal treasure trove for anyone striving to live a healthier life in the age of information.”
Dr Indu Subaiya, Co-chairman & CEO, Health 2.0
Self-tracking is the practice of measuring and monitoring your health, activities or diet through technologies such as smartphone apps, wearables and personal genomics, empowering you to take control of your day to day health. I explain the benefits and risks of self-tracking and look at:
- What exactly is being tracked
- The tools and techniques being used
- The best practices of early adopters
- How self-tracking is revolutionizing the health and wellness industries
- How the medical establishment is adapting to these new trends
“…This book will be a wake-up call to health services and health researchers about the rapidly approaching importance of patient- reported data and the opportunities for collaborating with the medical establishment.”
Dr Robyn Whittaker, Public health physician, Waitemata District Health Board
