Abstract

The use of mobile health together with the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and wireless networks have the potential of reshaping the healthcare systems towards the patient-centred and preventative ones. Better empowered patients which are familiar with smart technology represent a viable way for raising the quality of the self-management of health. Usability is a key factor for a successful acceptance of mHealth solutions. This paper presents the results of the heuristic evaluation of two mHealth apps that support self-healthcare revealed several important usability problems which have to be fixed in the further versions.
