            Prioritizing integrated mHealth strategies for universal health coverage.

             G. Mehl,  A. Labrique (2014)
            As countries strive toward universal health coverage, mobile wireless technologies-mHealth tools-in support of enumeration, registration, unique identification, and maintenance of health records will facilitate improved health system performance. Electronic forms and registry systems will enable routine monitoring of the coverage of essential interventions for individuals within relevant target populations. A cascading model is presented for prioritizing and operationalizing the role of integrated mHealth strategies. Copyright © 2014, American Association for the Advancement of Science.
