Digital health, the convergence of digital technologies with health and medicine, is transforming health and healthcare. Mobile health, also known as mHealth, is playing a major role in this health and technology convergence. Our mobile lifestyles have created a new context for health care. Advances in digital health technologies and the widespread use of social apps have opened up new opportunities for engaging patients in the monitoring and management of their health.
