Cardiovascular disease is one of the main health problems and causes of death in the world. M-Health (mobile health) has the potential to improve the prevention of disease recurrence by providing continuous intervention after treatment at a hospital. The purpose of this paper were to review health literature that examines the application of m-health as a preventive measure in cardiovascular disease patients, identify features contained in m-health applications and analyze the factors for implementing mobile health. The preparation of this literature review used various databases including EBSCO, Google Scholar, Science Direct, PubMed, and Sage Journal which was conducted from December 2018 to January 2019. In total, this paper used 6 journals reviewed with predetermined keywords: four journals with quantitative methods, one journal with qualitative methods, and one journal with mixed-methods feasibility. Then screening was done based on the specified inclusion and exclusion criteria. M-health can change healthy behavior post-treatment at a hospital and prevent recurrence in patients with cardiovascular disease, With remote health services health workers can easily monitor patients’ health status. The factors that influence the application of m-health are the level of patient knowledge of technology, the level of awareness of prevention of cardiovascular disease, lack of motivation for smartphone use, and poor internet access in a remote area.
