This capstone was developed with the Patient Experience Department at Maine Medical Center (MMC) and an interdisciplinary MMC Tools and Technologies group. This research and analysis explores and outlines the foundations and best practices for mobile health (mHealth) applications (apps) across the spectrum of healthcare. mHealth apps used at some of the top rated hospitals in the country were selected and studied as possible templates for a similar initiative at MMC.
