This paper aims to review the HIMSS patient engagement framework's applicability and to recognise the patient engagement features presented in current mHealth interventions for improving engagement in diabetes self-management. Scopus, Web of Science and Medline databases were searched for relevant studies. The selected studies were then analysed using the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) patient engagement framework. Twenty engagement features were identified from twenty-nine studies reviewed. Half of the HIMSS patient engagement framework categories were seen in the studies. This review shows that mHealth interventions have achieved the third and fourth phases of the HIMSS patient engagement framework. In addition, this review suggests improvements in patient engagement facilitation, including integrating patient-generated data into electronic health records, collaboration access to the health records, and peer support through online community forums. Finally, the future patient engagement framework is discussed for mHealth technology.
