Main Article Content

Ismail Ali Afrah Utku Kose


Main objective of this study is to introduce an expert system-based mHealth application that takes Artificial Intelligence support by considering previously introduced solutions from the literature and employing possible requirements for a better solution. Thanks to that research study, a mobile software system having Artificial Intelligence support and providing dynamic support against the common health problems in daily life was designed-developed and it was evaluated via survey and diagnosis-based evaluation tasks. Evaluation tasks indicated positive outcomes for the mHealth system.
