mHealth Ties Scientists, Doctors, Patients

mHealth, short for mobile health, is the new buzzword in health care and research. It refers to the practice of medicine and health with the assistance of mobile devices.

Jonathan Sprinkle, a professor in the the University of Arizona Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a member of the UA Mobile Health Special Interest Group, said the work is a "chance to make impact, to help someone or to make a new application that will help someone to transform their health."
