The health service can be delivered across the globe with the support of the warless and the mobile technologies. This is mainly due to the factors that rapidly increase with the usage of different opportunities that will affect the e-health services. There are about five billion people who have subscribed for the wireless subscription. Nearly seventy percent of them are from countries that have low and middle income. According to the reports of the GSM association around eighty five percent of the world’s population cover up the wireless signal. The 2009 global survey of the World Health Organization (WHO) encompassed a special section which was dedicated to m-health. The World health organization determined to seek out the status of the m-health. There were nearly hundred and fourteen members with different aspects of m-health that included the kinds of initiatives, adoption of initiatives and implementation barriers.
The m-health services had fourteen categories to be surveyed some included the health centres and the toll-free services the other were Status of evaluation, community mobilization, promotion of health, treatment compliance and also collection of data and surveys of health. There were also surveys of health awareness and support systems. All these system priorities were based on the adoption systems of m-health by countries that were responding to this issue. The worldwide health systems are in a pressure of performing under the health challenges of countries more them one. The shortages of staff and the budget limitations are also some of the reasons to which an evaluation is required. These systems were considered to be some of the most prioritise system. The m-health can be measured from this foundation. The solid evidence of the policy makers and the other administrators are in charge of the decisions. Cost effectiveness is determined by the process of evaluation. It is the process where the public health benefits are involved and the government policy is noted.
All the important barriers of m-health lead to a policy by the government. Some of the other evaluation implementations are result based and are not conducted routinely. There are about only twelve percent of state members evaluating the health services which are a concentrated effort that is made to recognize the importance of the evaluation system and also sharing the results with all the member of the states. The policy will become important as the field of the e health grows. The important issue that must be addresses within the policy in the area is the data security. The security that concerns all kinds of health technologies and it also puts the information of the citizen at risk. This can happen if the necessary precautions are not taken. These are some of the legitimate concerns on the security of the citizen. It is necessary that the policy makers as well as the programme managers be aware on the issues of security. This is because there is no in particular strategies are policies that is either developed or implemented in the m-health domain
If the initiatives are used in long and short term directions then there will be vital efforts that can be chosen on it.
According to the survey results, the m-health is characterised by different types of small scale projects that only address the problems that are single and these information’s are mostly compared to that of sharing and access. Most of these m-health implementations are supported by public or private partnerships. Most of the large scale and the other programmes have policies and strategies that are wise some of them are not much different from the areas of e-health and one can accept the standards in a interoperable technology that would reduce the cost and the efficiency. It is necessary for the countries to follow best practices and applications that can be used to practice in a more collaborate way.
If one move towards the approach of planning and development then there are chances of health priorities to be increased that is sure to enhance the impact that it is going to have on m-health. The broader health priorities can be integrated within the countries by increasing the guidance and the other information’s that is required. The WHO will see to that these actions are undertaken to strengthen the systems.
The member of the states supports the m-health to maximize the impact. It can be achieved by giving the information of the best practises that are to be suited for the scenario. There are a series of databases that is developed to include the information of the local initiatives and the recommendations of the best practices and awareness.
The WHO and the ITU will be creating the national e-health road development with the help of the strategy development. With the help of the member states and the strategies the health department have their own comprehensive developments and strategies. There are different partners who develop a framework and evaluate the programmes which include indicators that are measurable. Some of the emphasis of the country has several initiatives. All the member states have the access of planning and preparing the projects.
The ITU and the Who serve the well being by providing guidance on the contents of scope of privacy and policy of security in the department of telecommunications in health. There are several country based health centres that create an existing e-health domain. There are several policies that are being complemented on basis of standards and partnerships that utilize the technologies that help in improving the well being.
The advancement of the technologies and the advancements are into the application of the priorities of health conditions that is resolved. These innovative applications are considered to be health priorities that are known to be that as m-health. The Union of telecommunication is nearer to the population that is close to five billion subscriptions in the world. There is about eighty five percentage of the population that is covered under the wireless signal. The fixed internet deployment and the infrastructure of the paved roads and electricity are surpassed because of the penetration of the networks in many middle and low-income countries. The information’s of these networks are offering data transmissions for handsets that are cheaper and powerful. Some of the health services access and manage the way of transformation. With the increase in the accessibility there are greater possibilities on personalization and would help the citizens to focus on the health and the medical care. There are series of deployments services worldwide that offers the potential for wireless mobiles and technologies. The m-health is also being applied to child and maternal health programmes that is used to reduce the deployments worldwide and reducing the applications and the services of the information that are reduced to move into a health clinics and adherence of enhancing the diagnosis treatment among other citizens.
The potential of the field is recognised by the United Nations and the World health organisation. The m-health is a innovation that is given to achieve the goals that have been outlined by the global strategy that includes the health o f women and children which is being launched in the year 2009.It is necessary that one understands the environment with the WHO member viewpoint to decide the next step of making the m-health global. The report mainly aims in making the policy makers aware of the main barriers in the projects. All the details of both the data that is gathered at the time of the health survey is present here, it is complemented by the case studies of nearly five countries.
Definition of m-Health
M-health is said to be an element of e-health. Currently there is no standardised definition that is been established. For the survey purposes, health is being defines as the health practice that is being sustained by mobiles and monitoring devices. The m-health also involves the capitalization of the mobiles utility which can either be on patient’s voice or other short message services. A packet radio is being used for more complex functions. Usually the 3G and the 4G systems are used for positioning with the blue tooth technology.
