"mHealth (mobile health) is a general term for the use of mobile phones and other wireless technology in medical care. The most common application of mHealth is the use of mobile devices to educate consumers about preventive healthcare services. However, mHealth is also used for disease surveillance, treatment support, epidemic outbreak tracking and chronic disease management." - SearchHealthIT, mHealth (mobile health), accessed August 2019, http://bit.ly/2KMKK8q
