E-health and M-Health have come to play an important role in supporting healthcare via electronic means. M-Health is the use of mobile devices such as a mobile phone or tablet to support the practice of healthcare. These m-Health applications have been improving the delivery of healthcare information to researchers, practitioners, and patients as patients can log, store and monitor their own health and access electronic health records on their personal mobile devices. While E-Health, on the other hand, is the healthcare practice supported by electronic processes and compared to m-Health is a much broader term like for example, e-Health includes technology such as electronic health records, patient administration systems, and lab systems, all of which cannot be stored within mobile health applications and would require bigger systems to manage.
