Resumen

PACORA CAMARGO, Luis Antonio. CHECKEATE, a technological application for the prevention and treatment of chronic non-communicable diseases. Rev. cuba. inf. cienc. salud [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.2, e1677.  Epub 01-Abr-2021. ISSN 2307-2113.

Lack of a preventive culture and of timely early diagnosis are two of the most important factors to be considered in the prevention and treatment of chronic non-communicable diseases worldwide. Mobile technology is therefore an alternative which could very well be used in preventive medicine. The purpose of the study was to validate a technological application for the diagnosis of chronic non-communicable diseases using a mobile device. A descriptive study was conducted based on the survey as technique and the questionnaire as data collection tool. The sample was 60 people aged over 18 years, all of them users of the social network Facebook, who follow the webpage https://es-la.facebook.com/DrLuisPacoraCamargo/. Results show that 57.1% of the respondents were aged 21-40 years; 88.3% reported using the Internet daily; 53.3% that they used their devices frequently for communication through social networks; 53.4% had downloaded a health-related application, and 82.8% were familiar with the term "preventive medicine" and would used it more frequently if they had more information on their mobile devices. In conclusion, design and implementation of a health service through mobile devices, as is the case with CHECKEATE, would be viable in a young market potentially interested in preventive health topics.
