Mobile Health – or just mHealth – is the use of smartphones and tablets in health care, diagnosing and actual treatment. It is an industry which worldwide is growing rapidly year by year. In Denmark and Germany, it is an established and ever growing industry with an annual turnover of several billion euros, which allows patients and clinicians better and more relevant information for treatment, self-monitoring, access to hospitals, workflows, and much more.
Therefore, Odense University Hospital, University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein – Campus Kiel, Erhvervsakademiet Lillebælt and Fachhochschule Kiel, started this 2-year project to develop a number of mHealth applications in selected clinical areas.
The project aims to identify existing national and international mHealth applications and explore the possibilities of establishing new, innovative services in a dialogue between patients and hospital.
