Mobile Internet SIG: mHealth – demos and value chain of speakers



  • Topic:
    mHealth – Mobile Healthcare; consumer, doctors, healthcare providers, hardware and software tech enablers

    Monitoring data entry tools

    Access to data, references, and continuing education

    Real-time patient – doctor communication

    To be practical, this event focuses just on recording of health monitoring data into mobile devices either by manual data entry or by direct or wireless connection with monitoring devices.

    * Recording health monitoring data, displaying it, and transmitting it to electronic health records and other databases

    * Accessing patient data, medical references, and educational materials

    * Real-time or asynchronous communication among healthcare providers, between patients and their providers, and among the patient population

    The mHealth market segment is expected to reach more than $2 billion by the end of this year.

    As of November 2010, there were over 17,000 healthcare apps available for smartphones and tablets, many of which are for recording healthcare data.  An electronic blood pressure cuff that connects to iPhones and iPads is sold online and in Apple Retail Stores and connects with an app that displays graphs and shares the data.
