Upcoming 2014 mHealth Events

Jan 08, 2014 12:04 PM EST

There are a lot of influences impacting mHealth (mobile health) technologies these days. Mobile technology is considered the future of patient-centric care. Consumerism is a contributing success area of mHealth as well. Devices such as Android smartphones and apps for healthcare are changing the way people are living and using apps to participate in healthcare. Sid Kosaraju, managing director for Accenture, stated at last month’s mHealth Summit panel,  "I think we're in the middle of a care transformation where ability is being transformed by tools," he said. Those tools, he added, are used in four equally important settings: staffed beds, face-to-face, in-home and virtual.

Nasrin Dayani, executive director of AT&T ForHealth, AT&T Advanced Business Solutions stated "Eighty percent of mHealth apps don't get used beyond one month ... they're not being integrated in workflows or being made part of the care delivery system." The demand for meaningful use in the apps and data is being questioned on engagement.

The movement of the “e-patient” is forthcoming. These consumers are using multiple devices such as Android smartphones, tablets, applications and more and are seeking new ways to use digital health. Mobile sensors are taking more place within the industry. InMedica predicts that the American telehealth market will grow by 600 percent between 2012 and 2017. This would represent an increase from the current 227,000 telehealth patients to reach up to 1.3m patients in 2017. They think this is mostly related to the reimbursement changes in the US.
