Health-related issues remain a continuous point of discussion globally among policymakers, health experts and researchers because there is no one-time solution to health problems. This study intends to link home care and mobile health services to illuminate the poverty-stricken society on alleviating poverty through smart health services. First, we conducted a literature review on mobile health and rural nursing. Second, we embarked on a thoughtful analysis to include influential materials not found in the literature reviewed. Third, we analysed the external influences and grouped them accordingly. Fourth, we integrate the factors into a conceptual model showing external and internal factors. Fifth, we analysed the role of mobile technology in rural nursing and finally developed practice recommendations. This study explores the urgent need for home care health services for rural dwellers with three pertinent questions: (1) How can home care and mobile health services enhance social development? (2) How can government policies impact home care mobile health services for rural dwellers? (3) Why are home care and mobile health services necessary for rural dwellers? The study employs the concepts of home care and mobile health services with an insightful literature review and integrated theories to probe poverty permeation and health inequality. It is expected that introducing home care and mobile health services will lead to easiness and convenience for rural dwellers and give assurance as they have access to treatment in the confines of their homes and the language they understand with the aid of smart nurses and smart technologies.
