Mapping mHealth Research: A Decade of Evolution

Marie Ennis-O'Connors insight:
ABSTRACT

Background: For the last decade, mHealth has constantly expanded as a part of eHealth. Mobile applications for health have the potential to target heterogeneous audiences and address specific needs in different situations, with diverse outcomes, and to complement highly developed health care technologies. The market is rapidly evolving, making countless new mobile technologies potentially available to the health care system; however, systematic research on the impact of these technologies on health outcomes remains scarce.
Objective: To provide a comprehensive view of the field of mHealth research to date and to understand whether and how the new generation of smartphones has triggered research, since their introduction 5 years ago. Specifically, we focused on studies aiming to evaluate the impact of mobile phones on health, and we sought to identify the main areas of health care delivery where mobile technologies can have an impact.
Methods: A systematic literature review was conducted on the impact of mobile phones and smartphones in health care. Abstracts and articles were categorized using typologies that were partly adapted from existing literature and partly created inductively from publications included in the review.
Results: The final sample consisted of 117 articles published between 2002 and 2012. The majority of them were published in the second half of our observation period, with a clear upsurge between 2007 and 2008, when the number of articles almost doubled. The articles were published in 77 different journals, mostly from the field of medicine or technology and medicine. Although the range of health conditions addressed was very wide, a clear focus on chronic conditions was noted. The research methodology of these studies was mostly clinical trials and pilot studies, but new designs were introduced in the second half of our observation period. The size of the samples drawn to test mobile health applications also increased over time. The majority of the studies tested basic mobile phone features (eg, text messaging), while only a few assessed the impact of smartphone apps. Regarding the investigated outcomes, we observed a shift from assessment of the technology itself to assessment of its impact. The outcome measures used in the studies were mostly clinical, including both self-reported and objective measures.
Conclusions: Research interest in mHealth is growing, together with an increasing complexity in research designs and aim specifications, as well as a diversification of the impact areas. However, new opportunities offered by new mobile technologies do not seem to have been explored thus far. Mapping the evolution of the field allows a better understanding of its strengths and weaknesses and can inform future developments.

Physicians: scared of social media? Stop and dive in.

Physicians: scared of social media? Stop and dive in. | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it


I hear from a lot of my professional friends, especially the doctors I’m in touch with regularly, about the fear of diving in — of starting out on their own social media journey. They’re watching us all swim around them, paralyzed by the thought of even dipping in their feet. It’s OK to feel that way. We all start somewhere, and many of us have experienced the same exact apprehension, at the start.

Pharma Companies Must Go Social to Reach Millennials   #esante #hcsmeufr #digitalhealth #mhealth #socmed

Pharma Companies Must Go Social to Reach Millennials    #esante #hcsmeufr #digitalhealth #mhealth #socmed | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it

Millennials are a sought-after and media-savvy consumer audience. While this coveted crowd can be an integral part of many pharmaceutical company’s marketing strategies, reaching them means taking a page out of a new playbook.

The “Connected Generation”—also known as Millennials—acts differently than the generations before them. They are digital natives, defined by their desire for information, services, and goods on-demand. Rather than purchase cars, many use Uber or Lyft. Rather than stop by a store, many use Amazon Prime to have purchases delivered within a day. They also view communication in their own way. Rather than pick up the phone or send an email, this connected generation uses apps, chatbots, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp.
