Abstract
As a growing industry, mHealth has been adopted in many fields of healthcare, such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, eating disorders and data collection. To improve practicality of mHealth applications, authentication schema, as the credential guard to protect access to mobile application with sensitive patient data, need to be evaluated according to the particularity of mHealth applications' user base. This paper identified several metrics for evaluating authentication schema of mHealth applications from the aspects of security and ease to use. Following these metrics, a QR-Code based schema is proposed as an alternative secure and convenient authentication way. This paper also evaluated different models of data analysis on self-report data.
