Abstract [en]

Background: Many studies reported effectiveness of mhealth interventions targeting middle aged and older adults to improve healthcare delivery process, efficacy and management of chronic diseases. However, the knowledge about their cost-effectiveness is important to implement mhealth interventions at large scale for proper allocation of scarce resources. This systematic review will summarize the results from identified studies for the cost effectiveness of mhealth interventions aimed for middle aged and older adults.

Method: mhealth interventions aimed to improve healthcare delivery process, efficacy and delivering training will be included in this systematic review. A comprehensive electronic search strategy will be used to identify health economic evaluations, published since 2007, and indexed in Pubmed, Scopus and CINAHL. The search strategy will include terms (and synonyms) for the following mhealth devices: mobile phone, smartphone, mhealth. Middle aged and older adults will be used to identify all mhealth interventions introduced to middle aged and older adults. Terms such as economic evaluation, cost effectiveness, cost utility etc will be used to identify economic evaluations of all mhealth interventions.

Discussion: This systematic review will report evidence on cost effectiveness of mhealth interventions targeting middle aged and older adults.
