Good afternoon,

My name is Sara Donevant, and I am a PhD candidate at the University of South Carolina College of Nursing. Currently, I am working on my dissertation to develop and test an evaluation tool to assist healthcare providers select mobile health applications (mHealth apps) for patients to manage and monitor chronic health conditions. The process of finding well-designed mHealth apps can be tedious and time consuming. I have developed a mHealth evaluation tool with feedback from over 340 health care providers. The final product will be available in an interactive electronic format for any provider to access and use. However, I need to test and validate the evaluation tool before publishing it online. Currently, I am needing advanced practice nurse to beta test the online evaluation.

If you are interested in helping you can access the online evaluation at:

Any reporting will include aggregate data. This study is funded through a F31 grant National Institutes of Health/National Library of Medicine (1 F31 LM012402-01A1).; and has been reviewed and approved by the University of South Carolina Institutional Review Board.
