Few of the hundreds of mobile apps for cancer survivors were appropriately developed or tested, according to a new study.Medical apps number about 265,000, many made without patient or doctor feedback, according to Ashish Atreja, MD, chief technology innovation and engagement officer at The Mount Sinai Hospital. “I never like to prescribe a medicine unless it is reviewed or approved by someone, so why would I want to do it with an app?” Dr. Atreja said.
