Abstract

This paper presents a mobile health system called Mobile DSMS which is based on the collaborative disease management framework using mobile technologies. Mobile DSMS allows patients with similar disease management interests to virtually gather and share experiences, ask questions and provide support and problem-solve remotely through the use of mobile devices.
