Descripción
(breve resumen): mHealth is an emerging field that comprises the delivery of health through mobile technologies, being part of a broader concept: eHealth. With the rapid advances and adoption of mobile technologies and applications, mHealth opens new opportunities to deliver healthcare and wellness promotion through personal mobiles. This will transform the current delivery of services linked to particular places to a delocalization and personalization of services delivery. Although the adoption and integration of mobile technologies is high across the globe, the particular adoption of mHealth remains low and scattered due to some remaining challenges. This chapter presents the current picture of mHealth and it later discusses the opportunities both at market level and with regards to healthcare delivery. Then, it presents future research directions as big data; and it closes with conclusions on this challenging emerging field.
