Open mHealth Architecture: An Engine for Health Care Innovation

  title={Open mHealth Architecture: An Engine for Health Care Innovation},
  author={Deborah Estrin and Ida Sim},
  pages={759 - 760}
Standardized interfaces and shared components are critical for realizing the potential of mobile-device–enabled health care delivery and research. Chronic diseases like diabetes, asthma, and obesity account for 46% of global disease burden (1). The traditional model of episodic care in clinic and hospital-based settings is suboptimal for improving chronic disease outcomes (2). Mobile communication devices, in conjunction with Internet and social media, present opportunities to enhance disease…
