What Is mHealth?

Read Transcript

MHealth to me is a really, kind of vague term, so whether it's mHealth, digital health, tele-health, connected-health, there's a lot of words that describe it, but essentially to me, what it is, is it's putting tools in the hands of consumers to help them improve their own health and safety and wellness, through that technology.

The concept of m or mobility just makes it that we now have these devices with us they are on, they can go anywhere we can go so, that device can pass to us and be more of a partner in reminding us to do the things we need to do, increase the communication with the people we need to communicate with, be it a nurse or a doctor, or an emergency response agent, making sure that that connection is always there and happen.
