Abstract

Although the need for comprehensive assessment of mobile health (mHealth) systems is critical, most existing research focuses solely on these systems' technical merits. The purpose of this study is to prioritize different aspects and indicators of assessing the quality of mHealth services and compare four popular Iranian mHealth systems using this framework. Statistical population of this research included experts who have more than three years of active experience in the field. Using Judgmental sampling method, statistical sample size included 28 persons who responded to questionnaires. Content validity was confirmed by an expert panel, and reliability was confirmed by an inconsistency rate of less than 0.1. The study findings show that results quality is the most important component of quality assessment for mHealth systems. It also shows that indicators of confidentiality, responsiveness and customer orientation are likewise important.

Research Objectives

Integrating technology with the voting process is becoming a reality in many countries around the world. This innovation can facilitate voting process and solve several problems such as the declining election turnout. Jordan is one of the countries that believes in e-government projects but has not yet started using such technology pervasively. His Majesty King Abdulla II directed his government towards improving e-government services and utilizing new technologies to enrich the political arena (Ammonnews.net, 2016). Such choices show the importance of e-government and e-voting research. Jordan used simple electronic aids, however did not utilize a large-scale technology in voting process. Such politically driven environments call for more research to understand the reason behind this lag in the use of technology for e-government and e-voting. Jordanians are educated but skeptical of the government actions where trust is crucial in e-government context (Abu-Shanab, 2014).
