Mobile Health's Impacts on Health Care
Across the world, mobile technology is improving access to health care information, collecting health-related data and connecting individuals to medical services. The impacts are global as smartphones and other connected devices expand rapidly in many parts of the world that otherwise have limited communication channels or health care options. From tracking infectious diseases to monitoring the impact of diet and exercise, mobile devices represent an opportunity to transform public health. Programs strengthening health care delivery and data reporting have so far made up the most publicized mobile health technologies. The show presents a panel discussion on the opportunities and challenges. Speakers include Pam Dixon, executive director, World Privacy Forum; Ram Fish, vice president, mHealth, Samsung; and Dianna Kane, senior designer, Medic Mobile.
