    Identifying mHealth technologies that support behaviour change

    The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Horizon Scanning Centre (HSC) are conducting research to identify innovative new and emerging mobile health technologies that support behavioural change in public health, with a focus on healthy eating, physical activity and positive mental health.

    mHealth refers to the use of mobile technologies to deliver healthcare solutions. These could include mobile phones, patient monitoring devices, tablets, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and other wireless devices.

    Researchers and others with knowledge and interest in this area are being invoted to complete a survey. It comprises 14 questions and should not take more than a few minutes to complete.

    The survey is available at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/786CD2W

    The Horizon Scanning Centre are an academic unit based at the University of Birmingham in England that supplies timely information to key policy and decision makers in the NHS and the NIHR community about emerging health technologies that may have a significant impact on patients or the provision of health services, usually within the next 2-3 years.

    By participating in their survey you will be contributing to this process and help ensure that the technologies that you have developed and/or are aware of will be brought to the attention of decision makers in the NHS.
