Given the Internet’s 24/7 accessibility and availability independent of people’s location, it comes as no surprise that the Internet is presently the most frequently consulted medium when people need health related information. As a consequence, and given their potentially high scalability, digital health interventions have mushroomed in popularity.

As such, digital health interventions include but are not limited to eHealth, mobile health (mHealth), telemedicine as well as wearable devices (e.g. activity trackers).
