There are many documentations that indicate the considerable potential of information technology, especially mhealth in this area. The aim of this study was to review the mobile based medication management systems in order to extract the requirements for these systems development.
Materials and Methods: Four electronic databases (PubMed, Embase, Web of Science and Science Direct) were searched for papers regarding mhealth based medication management systems. After screening the abstracts and publications information a descriptive study was performed on 15 papers.
Results: In this study, 13 functional requirements were extracted and the user requirements was divided into six main groups. Also the technologies which was used in order to implement the functional requirements were extracted.
Conclusion: According to the current study, medication management systems using mhealth technologies are feasible for people with chronic diseases, elderly people and etc. but there is not any medication management system for visually impaired people. Although due to their disabilities they are at higher risk of medication errors and it is a research gap that should be considered in future works.
