 en Top Mobile Applications in Pediatrics and Children’s Health: Assessment and Intelligent Analysis Tools for a Systematic Investigation
Mousavi Jazayer, Seyed Mohamad Hosein & Jamshidnezhad, Amir


The development of intelligent software in recent years has grown rapidly. Mobile health has become a field of interest as a tool for childcare, especially as a means for parents of children with diverse diseases and a resource to promote their health conditions. Current systematic review was conducted to survey the functionalities of available applications on the mobile platform to support pediatrics intelligent diagnosis and children healthcare. Results which met the inclusion criteria (such as patient monitoring, decision support, diagnosis support) were obtained, assessed and organised into a checklist. In this study, 379 potential apps were identified using the search feature in Apple App Store and Google Play Store. After careful consideration of the selected apps, only three (Google Play Store) and one (iTunes Store), fulfilled all the general inclusion criteria and special criteria, such as intelligence tools. The results showed that Artificial Intelligence (AI) was used minimally in diagnostic apps due to a limited amount of mobile hardware and software, such as the reliable programming of intelligent algorithms.
