Scientific mobile health research found severely lacking | mobihealthnews | mHealth and E-health Peer Reviewed Literature and Discussions | Scoop.it
Diego Castaneda's insight:

This isn't a peer reviewed article but it discusses the difficulty of studying efficacy of mhealth interventions and it has a link to a meta-analysis completed by two British researchers who found underwhelming results.
