mHealth = ‘Mobile’ + ‘Healthcare’
Mobile health information technology (mHealth) typically refers to portable devices with the capability to create, store, retrieve, and transmit data in real time between end users for the purpose of improving patient safety and quality of care
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
