August 30, 2019 / Sanket Shah

Smartphone users now think of their device not just as a means of communication, but a method of staying healthy. According to ITProPortal, the wellness mobile application market grew by 61 percent in 2018 and, thanks to these apps, users can lose weight, read their blood pressure, and perform other health tasks in a fast and flexible manner. It’s no surprise, then, that insurance and health services providers like Cigna, CVS Health, and United HealthCare, have rolled out their own mobile apps. Users may be able to make appointments, order prescriptions, and access medical records, saving them unnecessary trips to the pharmacy or faraway clinics.
