Summary

mHealth: From Smartphone to Smart Systems provides a high level and comprehensive survey of the emergence of mobile technology healthcare. This book looks beyond the already-popular devices and apps associated with mHealth, exploring the major role this technology could play as healthcare steers inexorably toward an architecture in which key decision making occurs at the point-of-care. In its fullest flowering, mHealth will serve as the catalyst that effectively addresses healthcare's most intractable problems--quality and cost--and will form the centerpiece of healthcare programs aimed at chronic disease management, population health, wellness and prevention.

This book covers a variety of topics, including an industry assessment of mHealth solutions, clinical and business applications, privacy and security concerns, stakeholder involvement, infrastructure issues and much more. Also included are 10 case studies that highlight how some organizations have moved forward with their own mHealth initiatives.
