What is Google Fit?

Glossary

Google Fit is an application designed to be a simple, yet effective, application to monitor and coach users to improve their health and fitness. Patients can track their calories, distance, elevation, steps, and time, with flexible and dynamic interface options that fit with their lifestyle and comfort level with technology.

Google Fit offers a hands-on level of coaching that supports the custom goals of consumers, including your patients. With the health and activity log, they can quickly track their activity and easily monitor any warning signs. It also encourages any and every level of activity, whether your patients prefer to swim, walk, jog, bike, or take the stairs. Every movement counts. 

The longer your patients use an application like Google Fit, the more data they’ll gather about their fitness habits, health, and overall wellness statistics that they can share with you during visits. With those real-time insights, your patients instantly know how much they’ve been moving, and you can also integrate the data into your electronic health record (EHR) data

What Are the Benefits of Google Fit?

Google Fit is free, which is a great benefit for your patients. In its simplicity, the range of benefits includes the following. 

  • Patients can easily monitor health and fitness via the Android phone or watch they use on a daily basis. 
  • They can also monitor their goals and share them with your practice, so you can offer suggestions for adjustments as needed. 
  • It’s easy for your patients to connect with their favorite applications on their laptop and smartphone, but they can also sync up with your remote patient monitoring system. 

Google Fit offers a flexible and easy-to-use interface that encourages your patients to participate in the fitness regimen you recommend. You can also engage with your patients to help them understand why the fitness app can improve their treatment plan.
