One of the proposed strategies for helping heart failure patients in managing their disease is using mobile phone which is now growing rapidly worldwide. However, the efficacy of this system is not well known. The objective of this systematic review was to determine the effects of mobile use on heart failure management.
Methods: In this review, published studies from 2009 to January 2015 that were accessible in PubMed, ScienceDirect, Scopus and Proquest were searched and from 1021 related studies, 69 articles were identified by their titles and finally, after applying inclusion and exclusion criteria, 11 articles were selected for review.
