Communication-enhanced healthcare through mobile technology is the future. Add to this the exploding fields of mobile digital tools (apps, sensors, documentation support) for patients and clinicans, and you have a disruptive change that signals the beginning of a revolution in healthcare.

You are invited to join mHealth Initiative in its efforts to explore the ecosystem, share experiences and discuss opportunities at the first of a series of mHealth workshops.

What is needed for the mHealth ecosystem?

The mHealth ecosystem includes technologies, policies, devices, systems, and standards for new communication between patients and providers, integration of apps and communication-enhanced disease management programs, colalboration and care coordination systems - and much more.

The mHealth ecosystem must take into account standards, technology, patient communications, connectivity, clinician preferences of devices and systems, wireless systems and devices, security training, interoperability, quality of service, confidentiality policies, device platforms, HIS/EMR/HIE integration, secure and intuitive email, secure texting, secure wireless transmission and integration of data, EMC, user policies, guidance in app selection, and other issues.
