Description

There has been a growing number of mobile health (mHealth) applications, which leads to concerns about the limits on innovation and discovery as well as the evolving nature of both mobile health and current healthcare delivery. Thus, more balance is needed in the development of medical apps to guarantee both the patients’ safety and security and the necessary innovations in the field. The goal of this project is to focus on the development of an applicable evaluation catalog for medical trusted apps in the Google Android operating system. Such a catalog is a significant improvement in terms of safety in the care process. In addition, we offer a conceptual definition and distinction for general medical apps. The catalog is offering universally applicable guidelines which can assist users, providers, and developers of medical software applications in the healthcare sector.
