U.S. Department of Defense Mobile Health Practice Guide, Fourth Edition   [open pdf - 13MB]

From the Introduction: "Rapid advances in health technologies require clinicians to have a general working knowledge of consumer technologies, specifically mobile health apps, and to understand how these tools are used for patient monitoring, education and treatment. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Mobile Health Practice Guide offers an overview of mobile health and includes essential tutorials, including how to download mobile apps and incorporate them into clinical settings. The guide is primarily tailored for military health providers but can be used by clinicians across the health care spectrum who diagnose and treat behavioral health conditions, particularly those commonly reported in military treatment settings. This guide is designed to inform decision-making in clinical settings and describes the fve core competencies for integrating mobile technologies into health care (see section II). This guide also serves as a companion resource for clinicians in the DoD Mobile Health Training Program (MHTP), offered by DHA [Defense Health Agency] Connected Health. The program aims to improve patient care by educating providers about best practices in mobile health."
