Care delivery services have been traditionally dependent on direct encounters between providers and patients. With the increase in the number of aging population and the added demand for most expensive and advanced care delivery services, healthcare organizations are investing in care services that are more effective and less costly. Use of technology in healthcare systems has been a significant driver for care improvement initiatives used for controlling cost and extending care delivery services that enhance healthcare accessibility. Implementing technology in healthcare demands proper alignment between newly developed tools and care delivery system needs. In this chapter, the authors discuss the role of technology in healthcare and the value of mHealth in diverse clinical settings.
