Potential benefits of mHealth applications are large for chronic diseases. To get an overview of how these applications are being evaluated, a scoping review is being conducted. First results show that single factors are most commonly assessed. The results of clinical outcome measures are the most common. Economic factors are the least common. A uniform framework that specifies different factors and metrics for the evaluation is not apparent.
