What Is the Difference Between eHealth and mHealth?

Read Transcript

mHealth is specifically about mobile, but there's a lot of overlap, so mobile health is anything that you do either on a cellphone or on a tablet that has to do with health or healthcare, that could be done by a provider specifically, and I guess eHealth could be with a provider as well, but I think of eHealth especially as having a strong emphasis on the consumer empowerment side.

To be honest this is an emerging area, and so there are a lot of terms that kind of overlap, and people are figuring out what they all mean and how they fit they're not in really tight it's one limb.
