World Health Organization Publishes mHealth Guidelines

mHealthThe mHealth Technical Evidence Review Group of the World Health Organization (WHO) has released a new mHealth research checklist for the reporting of studies involving mobile health interventions.

The mHealth evidence reporting and assessment (mERA) checklist offers a standardized approach to reporting of mHealth studies that clearly defines the intervention (content), as well as the context in which the intervention was tested, and how it was done (technical features). The goal is to improve the quality of reporting & facilitate replication.
