Chair, M-Health SIG, Board Director, SVCWireless
Mobile technology is getting widely used in the healthcare organizations. How the mobile support and the mobile applications used in various clinical environments will be very different. It also depends on end-users (clinician, care givers, patients, etc.) who use the technology. We will present and discuss various mobile technologies used in the healthcareorganization.
Different clinical workflows and settings require varying degree of mobility support for clinicians. Inpatient, outpatient, ER and other scenarios have some common needs for mobile applications but the needs also differ significantly between the scenarios. Furthermore, mobile applications are just the tip of the iceberg in the end-to-end system architecture and require significant flexibility in the underlying backend systems.
This presentation outlines what the author has learnt about physician usage of mobile applications through his personal experience of working with physicians in different workflow scenarios and clinical settings. It also discusses the architectural challenges that face the mobile application development community.
HYSTA Digital Health SIG and SVCwireless mHealth have invited experts to present their solutions and inside and to discuss the challenges in making the health care system more cost effective and efficient.

When & Where
As the world marches unavoidably toward globalization, the impact of China's vast and rapidly growing economy is felt in all aspects of business and investment. HYSTA (Hua Yuan Science and Technology Association) is excited to be a part of this historic transformation and we are proud to represent China. Our aim is to promote business, cultural exchange and to foster beneficial U.S. - China business relationships. We also endeavor to promote entrepreneurship and provide coaching and support for Chinese professionals in the Silicon Valley. We hope to contribute toward the success of a new generation of Chinese entrepreneurs and business leaders in the global economy.
HYSTA was established in 1999 by a group of Chinese entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. From humble beginning as foreign students with almost no assets or connections, they became prominent business leaders in the Silicon Valley. They created HYSTA with the hope to share their experiences and knowledge with young Chinese professionals entering the business world. HYSTA, in Chinese, means both Chinese origin and resources for the Chinese.
Today, HYSTA is the leading Chinese professional organization in the Silicon Valley. It has become a trusted network for both young talents, those who have accumulated years of wisdom and a platform to exchange knowledge between the two. HYSTA has also become a valuable partner for a wide range of businesses interested in China and in accessing the rich and vibrant Chinese business community in the Silicon Valley.
