Leveraging mHealth to Strengthen Health Systems and Improve Care

Over the last fifteen years, mobile and electronic technologies have dramatically changed the health sector landscape. When used appropriately, mHealth technologies can help strengthen essential system functions as part of broader system strengthening efforts to improve quality of care and health outcomes. As health systems extend coverage of essential services in the era of Universal Health Coverage (UHC), it is imperative to optimize the design and use of mHealth technologies that can best augment health system and service delivery improvement efforts.
