  • I have no conflicts to report.
  • Technologies for m-healthThe main device for m Health application is mobile phones (and smart phones). The advantages of using such phones in healthcare settings are illustrated in one research as :“ Living in resource-poor environments is not a barrier to the use of mobile phones for several cultural and economic reasons, but there appears to be a lower threshold of access to cell phones.(13) There is evidence that the existence of a so-called "digital divide" along the socio-economic gradient is less pronounced in mobile phones than in other communication technologies such as the Internet.(14) Furthermore, mobile phones cost less to rollout over large areas and mobile networks can be built faster than fixed lines and the social value of a mobile phone is highly valued even in resource-poor areas.(15) In addition, the use of mobile phones is immune to social prejudices. Men and women alike can use the phones. Similarly, due to the advancement of the technological infrastructure they are accessible to people from rural and urban areas, young and old, and can be designed to be used in any language.Lastly the mobile phone initiative is cost effective. Because mobile technology infrastructure already exists in African nations, there is no need for funding for development. The SMS intervention is inexpensive, and according to the Kenya case, each SMS costs about US$ 0,05, equivalent to US$ 20 per 100 patients per month, and follow-up voice calls averaged US$ 3,75 per nurse per month.(16) This protocol is also probably less expensive than in-person community adherence interventions, on the basis of travel costs alone. Thus, the intervention could be both cost effective and cost saving.(17)”http://www.consultancyafrica.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=615:an-sms-a-day-keeps-the-doctor-away-the-use-of-mobile-phones-to-improve-african-health-care-outcomes&catid=57:africa-watch-discussion-papers&Itemid=263

  • mhealth is still in its infancy. A lot of researches on mHealth have produced inconclusive result. The researches which showed promises still could not produce significant result due to poor research design and lack of available data.
