mHealth (a contraction of mobile health is

the practice of medicine using mobile devices, particularly physiological sensors. Sensors may be enabled to communicate with a user's mobile phone in a Body Area Network configuration. Related to e-Health.[1]


Although mHealth, as used in the FCC's National Broadband Plan, originally referred to "mobile" healthcare issues only, the mHealth Task Force defined the term more broadly to include mobile health, wireless health, and e-Care technologies that improve patient care and the efficiency of healthcare delivery.[2]
