There is a big disparity in delivery of healthcare services between “developing” and “developed” countries. Emerging economies have various disadvantages like poor socio economic status, lack of health awareness, etc. Higher mortality rate is observed. On top of that there is acute shortage of skilled doctors. While governments of such countries have taken various initiatives to improve the healthcare delivery in developing countries, significant challenges exist in both access to care and ensuring effectiveness of care. In this book, we describe requirements and challenges associated with healthcare delivery in emerging economies. Then we describe architecture, design and implementation of two mHealth systems (iASHA and iReduce) in detail. We also discuss how iASHA system can help prevent various medical malpractices in developing countries and how iReduce system can deter doctors from recommending unnecessary medical tests just to bump up his/her profit. Next, we provide summary of existing mHealth systems, following that we discuss how mHealth paradigms can address healthcare delivery challenges. Then we describe future roadmap for mHealth systems. The book is concluded with a set of questions and answers.
