Niche Medical Applications – Blood Pressure Chart

I recently was contacted by a guy named Matt from Poland who had built a simple web application that tracked Blood Pressure called Blood Pressure Chart. If you want to really see what he’s created in action, you can see his own Blood Pressure records, chart and statistics.

I really like the simple implementation of such a niche item such as Blood Pressure. It seems like niche applications for things like Blood Pressure or even blood sugar levels for diabetes could be very useful. I think that many people are just overwhelmed by the idea of using a full PHR software system, but they would be likely to use a simple application like this to track a specific health problem they’re trying to track.

Some work and thought still needs to go into how the doctor and patient will access and document a website like this, but it’s interesting to see the application of technology into such a tight niche problem area. Maybe the focus of an all encompassing PHR product is the wrong direction and instead the focus should be tighter niche products that don’t overwhelm the patient.
