Abstract:

Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and diabetes with increasing prevalence and high mortality rate imply high economic burden on health care systems and patients. According to the importance of prevention, early detection and management of these disease, availability of a mobile phone for majority of population and tendency to self-monitoring of health status by mobile health applications, the aim was to design and develop of Avicennapp mobile health application.Materials and Methods: The engineering team from Tehran University (TU) designed the research and development session of this application. The medical content prepared and approved by medical team from Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS) and converted to codes to be entered in the application. Results: This application consists of different sections. They include guidance for using the application and its measurement devices for blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol, personal profile, CVDs and diabetes risk calculators and providing smart recommendations based on the level of risk, smart reminders, the self- care status determinant and providing recommendations based on the self- care scores, calling emergency medical services and health care team in emergency situation.Conclusions: Designing and developing the mobile health application in prevention and management of CVDs and diabetes in Iran by multidisciplinary team can be a stride toward health care improvement in our country.
