Modalities  Mobile Apps  Instant notifications  High end Smart phones/ tablets  Emails  Low end smart phones/ tablets  SMS  Low end mobile devices  Voice Messages

mHealth  Key Areas  Education and Awareness  Remote Data Collection  Remote Monitoring  Communication and Training  Disease and epidemic outbreak tracking  Diagnostic and treatment support

Education & Awareness  SMS Alerts: SMS alerts have a measurable impact and a greater ability to influence behaviour than radio and television campaigns  testing and treatment methods,  availability of health services, and  disease management

Remote Data Collection  Collecting field information  Patients are rarely able to visit a hospital  Information should be updated and accessible on a real-time basis  The data collection process is more efficient and reliable if conducted via smart phones, PDAs, or mobile phones rather than paper-based surveys

Remote Monitoring  Possibility for treating patients in an outpatient setting  Limited access to hospital beds and clinics  applications consists of one- or two-way communications to monitor health conditions, maintain caregiver appointments, or ensure medication regimen adherence  Also include inpatient and out patient sensors chronic conditions

Communication & Training  Shortage of healthcare workers  Training new cadres of health professionals and empowering current workers  mobile technology is a strong basis for empowerment

Disease & Epidemic Outbreak Tracking  Outbreaks of communicable diseases often begin in pockets, and, when left undetected, can develop into epidemics. Ex: Tb, cholera, SARS  Deployment of mobile devices, with their ability to quickly capture and transmit data on disease incidence, can be decisive in the prevention and containment of outbreaks

Diagnostic & Treatment Support  Diagnostics and treatment support are vitally important in healthcare—misdiagnosis or the inability to diagnose a condition could have serious, even fatal, ramifications  With mHealth-enabled diagnostics and treatment support, patients are able to receive treatment in their villages and homes, averting the need for expensive hospital visits, which are beyond reach for many
