MObile eHealth for the VINdication of Global LIFEstyle change and \ndisease management solutions

Project description


Personal Health Systems (PHS)
Actions for a widespread uptake of mHealth
After nearly two years of worldwide research, the European MovingLife project (part of the 7th Framework Program) produced a roadmap for mobile health. It includes recommendations for technological research, clinical implementation practice and policy support. Its aim: to accelerate the establishment, acceptance and wide use of mobile eHealth solutions. What actions should be taken to secure a widespread uptake of mobile healthcare technologies?

The MovingLife project will deliver roadmaps for technological research, implementation practice and policy support with the aim of accelerating the establishment, acceptance and wide use of mobile eHealth solutions with the aim of accelerating the establishment, acceptance and wide use of mobile eHealth solutions that will support lifestyle changes. The MovingLife will take a global perspective on mHealth not only from the developed world, but equally so from the newly developed and developing regions. Evidence and best practice from use of mHealth solutions in the developing world will be taken into account and interviews with experts from newly developed countries such as Brazil and India will be included in the analysis. The roadmaps will address a broad group of fundamental issues such as: technology options for applications and services; options for new and improved medical guidelines; user empowerment, acceptance, ethics and privacy; socio-economic environments and policy and regulatory frameworks. The project will provide better understanding of the technology options for defining research policies and of the business and regulatory aspects for both private sector-driven and publicly-funded mHealth services. The MovingLife project has defined five objectives to reach the overall goal for the project. These five objectives are: definition and detailed description of state of play and trends, scenario development for mHealth applications, gap analysis and development of roadmaps. The project will also undertake validation and impact assessment in selected areas using Healthcare Technology Assessment methods and simulations of mHealth applications in daily life situations. The expected impact covers improved understanding of the technology options in areas such as network resilience, interoperability, security, etc. as well as improved understanding of the business and regulatory aspects.
