Abstract:Mobile Health (mHealth) is currently a topic of great interest worldwide. The major goal of most mHealth projects is to induce long-lasting behavior change among healthcare providers or patients or both. Clearly integration of Persuasive features has great potential for enhancing the effectiveness of mHealth solutions. In this paper we report the results of a systematic review of peer-reviewed papers describing mHealth interventions with a view to identifying the persuasive features employed, either explicitly or implicitly. Results have been summarized using descriptive statistics including cross-tabulations with types of mHealth interventions. Our results provide insights into the persuasive features that have been deemed to be useful across mHealth implementations in general and also across specific types of mHealth interventions.
