Mobile Health
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

Mobile health, abbreviated as m-Health, is a term used for the practice of medicine and public health supported by mobile devices. The term is most commonly used in reference to using mobile communication devices, such as mobile phones, tablet computers and PDAs, for health services and information, but also to affect emotional states. The mobile health field has emerged as a sub-segment of e-Health, the use of information and communication technology (ICT), such as computers, mobile phones, communications satellite, patient monitors, etc., for health services and information. Mobile health applications include the use of mobile devices in collecting community and clinical health data, delivery of healthcare information to practitioners, researchers, and patients, real-time monitoring of patient vital signs, and direct provision of care via mobile telemedicine.


In the present book, twelve typical literatures about mobile health published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on the functions and applications of mobile health. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in mobile health as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
