Abstract
Chronic conditions place a high cost burden on the healthcare system and deplete the quality of life for millions of Americans. There is significant medical literature that shows that continuous monitoring of patient health at home with the addition of provider support, improves patient health. Digital innovations such as mHealth technology can be used to provide efficient, effective, and patient centered healthcare. However, implementing mHealth technology can significantly change the composition of clinical staff and patient flow. In this paper, we evaluate the trade-offs of implementing mHealth technology in a clinical practice.
