Your patients are not just living longer – they’re living longer with chronic conditions. To make the best of it, they need to be empowered to look after themselves. It just so happens we have an app for that.
Practical Apps is dedicated to giving patients the tools they need to look after their health in collaboration with you, their primary care provider. On your behalf, here we take a critical look at mobile health apps to figure out which can actually help patients and which are just digital snake oil.

Dr. Matthew Cruickshank
Anxiety disorders are very common and often encountered by family physicians. And although they can be effectively treated, there are common barriers to treatment. One of the most common barriers is access to formal psychological treatment. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based therapy can both be effective at treating anxiety. Apps offer a way of delivering these therapies to individuals who are not able to access formal therapy with a healthcare provider.
Practical Apps is a collaboration between the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) and the Women’s College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Primary Care (WIHV).
