Text4Health – Will Texts Help Your Healthcare?

The government is hoping text messages could be an effective way of improving your healthcare.

The Department of Health and Human Services Text4Health Task Force says mobile messages are a great way to improve the health of Americans, especially traditionally under-served groups like those in rural communities, people with low incomes and minorities.

The group says 85% of U.S. adults have cell phones and that many of them report accessing health information on their phones.

One of the programs they’ve offered is  text4baby, which provides tips and support throughout pregnancy and baby’s first year. The service offers messages on topics like prenatal care and parenting.  Text4baby partners with other organizations and also offers social media components to involve young mothers.

Text4Health has targeted those at risk for diabetes in Detroit, New Orleans and Cincinnati with messages encouraging them to take better care of their health.

Other projects include TXT4Tots targeting parents of young children, SmokeFreeTXT, SmokeFreeMoms and domestic violence education.
