The term “mobile health” or alternatively “m-Health” is increasingly used over the last years. The term refers to the medical and public health practice supported by mobile devices, such as mobile phones, patient monitoring devices, Personal digital assistants (PDAs) and other wireless devices. The great challenge for IT specialists in health sector is the use of such devices in order to merge medical data, produced by these devices, with electronic patient records, due to the huge volumes of data produced and as a consequence the difficulties in storing and processing these data. In the current research we present a variety of sensors, smart mobile devices and m-Health applications. In addition, we describe the difficulties in storing and processing these data and we suggest that the implementation of distributed information systems could possibly encounter these problems.

Key words: Computer science in health, e-health, m-health, mobile health applications, wearable devices.
