The mobile technology world is evolving daily, creating unprecedented opportunities to transform the healthcare industry through hyper-connected, highly-personalized care, when and where people need it most. It has disrupted traditional healthcare in a number of ways, including online search (access to health information), health tracking (apps and wearables) and treatment (technologies that allow doctors to diagnose ailments remotely and support self-care). One of the areas where mobile health is having the most impact is in developing countries where infrastructure, resources and medical knowledge can vary greatly by country and region. By 2016, there will be a projected 10 billion mobile devices in use worldwide. The opportunities for dramatic breakthroughs in mobile health technology are great, but the road to get there is not without challenges. Nancy Brown will discuss these barriers and how, once overcome, better health can be achieved through going mobile.
