Abstract

Healthcare practitioners are becoming the bigger consumer base for mHealth apps. The facilitation of healthcare practitioners to deliver quality healthcare using mobile technology in collaboration with other ICT tools is known as mHealth. Though the App Store is witnessing the deployment of so many health apps, most of the apps do not fit into the medical workflow of most health facilities. This is because, the health domain is a typical enterprise information system that is highly distributed with multiple services being composed for decision making. In this paper, we highlight some of the pressing concerns in a distributed mobile environment that hampers the efficient consumption of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) such as bandwidth fluctuations and intermittent connectivity losses. Then, generic mHealth architecture is proposed that aimed at tacking some of the problems based on the adoption of Web Services.
