- To improve the reporting of mobile health (mHealth) interventions, the WHO mHealth Technical Evidence Review Group developed a checklist on mHealth evidence reporting and assessment (mERA)
- The checklist aims to identify a minimum set of information needed to define what the mHealth intervention is (content), where it is being implemented (context), and how it was implemented (technical features), to support replication of the intervention
- Through widespread adoption, these guidelines should standardise the quality of mHealth evidence reporting, and indirectly improve the quality of mHealth evidence
