mHealth in general practice - A toolkit for effective and secure use of mobile technology

Advances in mobile devices and applications (‘apps’), better connections (mobile networks, Wi-Fi), and the ability to integrate new technology with existing services have all led to greater acceptance and uptake of mobile tools by industries and consumers alike. Adoption of mobile technology in general practice is a very recent phenomenon.

 There is growing interest in the role mobile health (mHealth) can play in general practice.There are potential benefits in terms of both care delivery and business efficiency through the use of mobile tools such as smartphones, tablets and other medical devices (eg wireless monitors).

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. 

The 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.
