Abstract

Mobile health describes the supply of medical assistance services through mobile communication devices. We are witnessing a significant increase in demand for technologies and m-health applications. Apart from producing relevant improvements in life quality, the launch of platforms facilitating the transition between doctors, consumers, and companies operating within the biological science sector has led us to a community-based health, which is assimilated in the daily lives of consumers. The widespread use of devices and the rapid access to health assistance are an opportunity to revolutionize the industry. Thanks to mobile technologies capable of implementing the ubiquitous health, the right to health becomes real, which in turn allows a high-quality healthcare supply with reduced costs
