Abstract/Summary Mobile telemedicine refers to telemedicine applications that do not depend on stationary equipment. Small portable devices such as mobile phones/smart phones and PDAs or portable PCs are showing potential for telemedicine applications. Mobile phone ownership and subscriptions are increasing exponentially world-wide, including underserved areas and developing countries. Practical applications of mobile telemedicine include emergency services, triage, routine screening and telehomecare services. Other mobile teledermatology services comprise prevention and follow up via text messaging and mobile phone application software for patients and physicians.
