The key challenge for hospitals is how to use mhealth to manage chronic diseases

 

The answer:

mHealth solutions can influence patient behaviour to improve lifestyles : through education, awareness and by supporting citizens in making lives healthier, mHealth can potentially help reduce the incidence of diseases.mHealth solutions enable chronic disease remote management through mobile-based communications technologies that support patient mobility and reduce the need to visit hospitals.mHealth solutions enhance clinical decision-making and may optimize the use of physical and human healthcare resources by providing the system and staff with more information and tools for better analysis.

185 million patients across Europe can potentially benefit from mHealth. 98% of them can potentially  improve their lifestyles and their overall health.
