mHIMSS, the mobile initiative of HIMSS, presents the Roadmap. This Roadmap provides guidance to professionals, organizations, corporations and health systems on the adoption of mobile and mHealth devices. The Roadmap team, organized by mHIMSS, includes a variety of industry wide subject matter experts who volunteered time over the past year to develop the document. We-the mHealth community- recognize the rapid change related to the use of mobile and mHealth devices and the need to empower the use of these devices in healthcare. Increasingly, patients and providers are leveraging mobile devices to seek care, participate in, and deliver care. Mobile devices represent the opportunity to interact and provide this care beyond the office walls. The mHIMSS Roadmap combines up to date knowledge on how to implement mobile and mHealth best practices across a number of topics. The Roadmap is a living document and the mHIMSS team of volunteers will regularly post updates to reflect new industry developments.
Each section of the roadmap provides a brief background of the topic, the current state of adoption, and potential future improvements In addition, the document discusses the interrelationship between many sections. For example, there is a need to leverage and create standards which enable the development of new models of care.
