A Answers (1)

  • The term mobile health or mHealth is used to describe the use of devices such as smartphones or tablets in the practice of medicine, and the downloading of health-related applications (apps). This helps with the flow of information over a mobile network and can improve communication between you and your doctor. Whether you have a specific condition that needs monitoring or simply wish to improve your overall health, there is likely a mobile app to help you achieve your goals.
