“El mercado de la mHealth está en constante crecimiento y genera un interés cada vez mayor por parte de los diferentes agentes vinculados al ámbito de la salud, así como de la sociedad en general. En los últimos años se han presentado numerosas publicaciones sobre la realidad de este sector, algunas de las cuales reflejamos en este trabajo. Este informe no pretende competir con las mismas, sino hacer una llamada de atención sobre la situación de la salud móvil en el mercado hispanohablante, aportando una selección de las apps en español que destacan por su calidad, utilidad médica y contribución a la mejora de la salud, cuya información se ha recogido hasta el mes de enero de 2014. Pretendemos por lo tanto lanzar un primer instrumento que sirva como espacio de reflexión y acercamiento, con la intención de que quede abierto al diálogo y a la participación futura de un mayor número de agentes y profesionales de la salud.”
