ABSTRACT
Mobile health (mHealth) seeks to improve individuals' health and well-being by continuously monitoring their status, rapidly diagnosing medical conditions, recognizing behaviors, and delivering just-in-time interventions, all in the user's natural mobile environment. The Web extra at http://youtu.be/o2mieSywutY is an audio interview in which Santosh Kumar, Wendy Nilsen, and Mani Srivastava discuss the path toward realizing mobile health systems.
INDEX TERMS
