Mobile Health 2010 at Stanford University

Mobile Health 2010 at Stanford University is coming up: May 24-25, 2010. I'm dying to go, but there's no way I can afford to travel for this meeting. You can learn more here: http://www.mobilehealth2010.org/
Mobile Health 2010 has a precise and practical focus: We will highlight how today's mobile technology can improve the health of everyday people. The emphasis is on what's working to change behavior, right now.
Speaking of Mobile Health, there's another conference coming up in September called the 2nd International mHealth Networking Conference. September 8-9, 2010 Town & Country Resort Hotel, San Diego CA. Learn more here: http://www.mobih.org/
The 2nd mHealth Networking Conference will build on the first such conference (February 2010 Washington DC), which showed that mHealth is a complex field that will have a major impact on all stakeholders in healthcare. More medical apps for smart phones are being developed every day. New communication systems are being tested and ready to change clinician to patient relationships. Providers are challenged to integrate such systems into their legacy systems. New policies need to be implemented to manage this exploding field.
I will be presenting at the mHealth Networking Conference and talking about physician use of mobile devices, so stay tuned for details.
