Report: 5 steps to improve mHealth adoption in research

The Duke University Margolis Center for Health Policy in Washington, D.C., convened a working group of healthcare and mHealth experts to investigate how to improve mHealth adoption in medical research.

For the report, the working group considered challenges related to data validation and interoperability, among other barriers, to accelerating the use of mHealth.

Here are the five recommendations the group outlined in the report.

1. Establish a research community to develop patient-facing mHealth technologies

2. Encourage the use of open-source software frameworks to reduce development time and create research-capable designs

3. Use development standards to ensure researchers have access to robust user-generated health data

4. Provide study participants with feedback about research progress using mHealth technologies

 5. Streamline the process for participant enrollment by integrating informed consent and patient privacy services into mHealth technologies
