Abstract

© 2020 Elsevier Inc. Mobile apps and mobile health interventions have the potential to alter the landscape of medicine significantly, from how care is provided at the bedside to the ability to recruit patients and conduct medical research. Mobile apps have the potential to be used for prenatal care, postsurgical follow-ups, informing patients about conditions, and helping with the management of illness. They have the ability to remodel prenatal care and strive toward more personalized medicine. The most remote and vulnerable patients can be reached. Guidelines must be created, however, for optimal use of mobile health apps and a structured way to vet them.
