Health systems framework for decision-making about mHealth for community-based health services. The framework adapts and draws on three existing approaches to reviewing various eHealth applications. Figure 1 illustrates the four health systems dimensions that should be considered when applying a health systems perspective to appraise the challenges of scaling up mHealth; stewardship and organisational, technological and financial systems. Each dimension has two or more elements that are important to consider when making decisions about acquiring and or scaling up mHealth.
