MEASURE Evaluation's mHealth: "Public health solutions, now without boundaries"

Dec 11, 2015

The most recent issue of Carolina Public Health highlights the work being done with MEASURE Evaluation's mHealth program: "UNC Gillings School researchers are harnessing Web-based applications and mobile devices to collect real-time data and deliver interventions to segments of the public - people at risk for diseases, those with high-risk behaviors and patients with particular conditions. New tools allow them to transcend the usual barriers of time, distance and geography, reaching people in places that formerly were unreachable in ways that never would have been possible. mHealth - as these mobile health activities are known - enables collection of data and delivery of health-care services by way of smartphones, tablets, computers and other mobile devices."

mHealth has been used in HIV/AIDS and cancer research, chronic disease research, obesity prevention, and in work targeted to women, children and adolescents.
