mHealth in general practice


A toolkit for effective and secure use of mobile technology

mHealth in general practice
The mHealth toolkit provides general practices already utilising mHealth with an opportunity to review and enhance their existing activities to ensure they are safe, secure and compliant with privacy and security legislation.

Mobile technology has become part of our everyday lives and it is not an overstatement to suggest it has revolutionised the way we communicate and live our lives.

Despite the itinerant nature of general practice, which goes far beyond the clinic walls and into patient homes, community care facilities and hospitals, adoption of mobile technology within the profession is a recent phenomenon.

mHealth in general practice: A toolkit for effective and secure use of mobile technology provides information and instructions for anyone considering incorporating mobile technology into general practice.

It is designed to help you do so easily, effectively and securely – with minimal ‘tech’ expertise.
