"This book is a sparkling example of a transition to a new era of books on a particular topic: it contains a multidisciplinary approach, [offers] easy searching, [is] logically structured, and is a result of the thorough work of a big team of specialists from different countries and professional backgrounds. This helps to create a full, up-to-date picture of mobile health initiatives and their implementation in diverse social, financial, and geographical environments, [as well as the related] achievements and controversies."

"... brings together a comprehensive collection of evidence and discussion that assesses the role mHealth is already having in healthcare delivery around the world and analyses the relevant impacts this can, and will, have throughout the industry vertical. ... goes beyond discussion to introduce specific analysis, research, and targeted guidance frameworks for professionals working in the industry. ... provides a compelling case for wider mHealth adoption. Just as mHealth in itself is providing the vital connections across healthcare, the editor has succeeded in drawing together this disparate evidence base in order to present a comprehensive overview of the potential for these technology-led services."
--Matthew Driver, from Journal of mHealth, October 2015
"... describes the successes from across the broad spectrum of mHealth applications; summarizes the design, implementation, and assessment of mHealth technology; and discusses the future implications of mHealth and its integration with other healthcare technologies. ... The authors discuss a wide variety of mHealth technologies, without particular bias to any one technology or implementation. Taken together, mHealth: Multidisciplinary Verticals serves an important role as an introductory resource to the burgeoning field of mHealth."
