mHealth : the ubiquitous health information ?

Le Temps des médias n° 23, Hiver 2014, p. 52-65.

From mobile Personal Health Record to confidential clinical data send by SMS, those devices are increasingly used to provide “better” services with less financial and human resources and more implication of health consumers. Among ICTs for health, the Internet has been extensively studied whereas the use of mobile technologies for health, called “mhealth” or “mobile Health”, has been less documented so far.
