Presentation: Mobile Health: a sneak preview into some fascinating innovations that will affect your practice
Mobile Health has become a sort of buzz word, but what does it mean? What aspects of Mobile Health are already impacting your practice and how will they evolve in the future?
Patients are adopting mobile technologies faster than most people thought they would. Some of the leading Healthcare organizations are already taking advantage of this fact and are using mobile technologies to engage patients and help them to be accountable for their own health decisions as well as obtaining invaluable feedback from them. Join us and learn what is already out there and what is to come in the world of m-health.
