Community health apps are used by workers to advance a broad range of health aims throughout the globe, particularly maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, and sexual and reproductive health. Most commonly, community health workers use mobile technology to collect field-based health data, receive alerts and reminders, facilitate health education sessions, and conduct person-to-person communication.

By entering their email address, users would receive a letter to print out and take to their GP. Their contact details were also added to the Diabetes Queensland database for ongoing follow-up.
