Abstract:There has been a phenomenal rise of mobile devices and smart phones globally in the past few years. This global transformation is bringing a change that is impacting our world in every way – how we interact, play, read, write, watch, study, research, work or even relax. Traditional methods of doing research, developing solutions and subsequent adoption and utilization by end-users in this information and digital age at a break-neck speed is also seeing a change that is rapidly adapting/adopting to this wave. Regulators are scrambling to stay ahead of the curve by defining policies and regulations that will help leverage its benefits but at the same time, hopefully, not throttle or choke innovation. Mobile Health is in the midst of this explosion!

This talk will walk through Mobile Health case studies and implementation experiences from around the globe. The examples will demonstrate how health problems of today’s information society and the needs of data and knowledge intense heterogeneous but STANDARDS based healthcare solutions are being met by bleeding-edge mobile solutions that were in the cradle of research till recently. Think ATM for money, think WIFI for your laptops and smart phones working anywhere, think local cell phones working in a foreign land. STANDARDS are foundational to the global successes these industries have seen and this is the direction that health (IT) industry is taking.

In summary, as we transition to a digital record framework (access, capture, and dissemination of information) use of mobile health will continue to rise. As mobile devices become more and more ubiquitous, accessing our Health Information is only a few tap/swipe away!
