Abstract

Several studies have estimated the potential economic and social impact of the mHealth development. Considering the latest study by Institute for Healthcare Informatics, more than 40,000 Apps of health and medicine are offered in the Apple store. Adding those of Playstore and other platforms, the figure reaches 97,000. Thus, they have become the third-fastest growing category, only after games and utilities, and it has projected that its presence will grow about 23% annually over the next five years. This study aims to estimate the impact that the development of mHealth has had on the health and computer science field, through the study of publications in specific databases for each area which have been published since 2010 to 2014.
