Mobile apps are central to the collection and analysis of good quality data and will help drive improvements in the effectiveness and efficiency of health-care delivery. Health care systems are facing multiple challenges that are gradually leading to the adoption of new care models, which are largely based on a shift away from mostly large general hospitals - with fewer hospital beds dedicated to acute care - toward the delivery of more health care services in primary care settings, day care facilities, and health centres. These new care models are based on an empowered role of the patient and mobile technologies are assuming an emerging role in this scenario. This is particularly true in care processes where the patient has a particularly enhanced role, such as Type I diabetes and cancer supportive care.
