IMS Health to introduce a consumer version of its health app ratings app




CLEVELAND - IMS Health is getting ready to launch a consumer version of its professionally-geared AppScript app in May, MedCityNews reported earlier this week


Currently, AppScript enables doctors to rate and “prescribe” mobile apps for their patients, MedCityNews noted. "Very early research suggests about half of the patients who get prescribed apps through AppScript will use them beyond the first month," MedCityNews reported citing IMS Health. 


But now AppScript will be available "without a prescription," so to speak, allowing consumers to identify and download appropriate health apps to help them manage their conditions based on those doctor's ratings.
