Mobile technology has transformed the way that
individuals accomplish everyday tasks like finding
directions, paying bills, and communicating with friends.
But mobile technology has also changed the way
individuals interact with the medical system around the
world. With technological advances, health providers are
now able remotely to monitor diabetic and heart patients,
send email reminders to take medications, and access
diagnostic databases through mobile devices. How have
these innovations contributed to patient health and
enhanced the doctor-patient relationship? What mobile
health advances are transforming medical care? How are
countries around the world using mobile technology to
improve health care delivery and save money?
On May 22, the Center for Technology Innovation at
Brookings will hold a public forum as part of its Mobile
Economy Project to evaluate mobile technology's influence
on healthcare. A panel of experts will discuss how mobile
technology is enabling health innovation both in the
United States and around the world. After the program,
speakers will take audience questions.
