AppCircus Searching for the Best Health App

conhIT 201514 - 16 April 2015, Berlin, Germany.
AppCircus, the biggest competition for mHealth apps, will be taking place for the first time at conhIT in Berlin, Europe's largest event for health IT. The best apps that supports "interaction between doctors, nurses and patients in Europe" will receive an award.

Over the past two years the number of mHealth applications has doubled. Currently, over 100,000 apps are available for iOS and Android operating systems, and the number is rising. These intelligent applications for mobile devices have long ceased to be niche market products and instead have firmly established themselves in health IT circles and consequently at conhIT.

For the first time, this year's conhIT will include a ‘mobile health zone’ that will present the latest mHealth innovations and trends.

This competition, in line with other well-known Appcircus App-competitions aims to draw even more attention to this topic and to raise awareness to the practical demands made on health apps.

Taking part in this competition gives health app developers and companies a unique opportunity to demonstrate the practical aspects of their solutions and to present them to an expert audience.

The award ceremony will take place on 15 April 2015 at 2 p.m. on the 'mobile health ZONE' in Hall 4.2.
