mHealth Research Affinity Group
Mobile technology is an ever-present part of daily life and increasingly essential in the management of pediatric health. Mobile health (mHealth) technology is used for assessment and monitoring, intervention, and communication. It can span from simple platforms—like basic text messages, apps, and social media—to the complex and futuristic, such as implantable and ingestible devices.
The mHealth Research Affinity Group (RAG) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is dedicated to fostering collaborative efforts to expand the capability to develop, test, integrate, and adapt mHealth tools and approaches for youth and their families.
