How Are mHealth and eHealth Interventions Revolutionizing Healthcare?

By IGI Global on Mar 7, 2023
Woman sitting at a desk with a laptop The COVID-19 pandemic brought a profound shift to healthcare systems around the world. Advanced technologies optimized the level of care and streamlined operations within hospitals. The development of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning technologies have allowed clinicians to treat people more efficiently and with more confidence and accuracy. On a more individualized level, the broad adoption and use of telehealth technology has had a profound impact on the quality of care being offered to patients. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), telehealth usage during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic increased by 63 times compared to before the pandemic.
Prof. Suha R. Tamim is the editor of Instructional Design Exemplars in eHealth and mHealth Education Interventions (ISBN13: 9781799894902), and a professor at the University of South Carolina, USA with an expertise in instructional design and technology.

The use of eHealth and mHealth interventions is on the rise. Their wide reach and the advantages they present in tailoring to specific needs, overcoming barriers of time and distance, and facilitating engagement, interactivity, and collaboration give them a significant potential for learning and behavioral change.
– Prof. Suha R. Tamim (University of South Carolina, USA)
Hear From the Expert

Not only are telehealth technologies beneficial to patients, but they have become a tool within health professional education as well. Electronic health (eHealth) and mobile health (mHelath) technologies are displaying significant potential for learning through their wide reach, ability to tailor to specific needs, and facilitation of engagement, interactivity, and collaboration. eHelath and mHealth interventions provide an increased level of quality and effectiveness; however, they vary in their use of theory and instructional design principles based on the perspectives of the disciplines that can influence their work.
More research is needed to understand how eHealth and mHealth interventions be used to promote health education and support health professions. The new reference book, Instructional Design Exemplars in eHealth and mHealth Education Interventions (ISBN: 9781799894902) published by IGI Global and led by an expert in instructional design and technology with over two decades of experience, explores how eHealth and mHealth exemplars demonstrate the integration of theory and design principles that benefit health professionals and health education.
