Abstract

This paper describes development of mhealth application "mWellcare" for the integrated management of hypertension and diabetes in public primary health care settings. mWellcare application was developed in four phases: identifying gaps in usual care; identifying components of intervention; developing intervention; evaluating acceptability and feasibility through pilot testing. Final version of mWellcare application is capable of computing personalized evidence-based management plan for hypertension, diabetes and co-morbid conditions (depression and alcohol use disorder).
