HealthWorks CollectiveREGISTER NOW: An exclusive, live webinar
May 23rd at 1pm ET/10am PT

How does mHealth improve patient access to better care?

Mobile Health, or mHealth, is a rapidly growing strategy that many healthcare professionals say can increase efficiency, cut costs, provide better customer service, and help handle tough circumstances such as a remote or incapacitated patient. mHealth consists of the use of the latest communication devices and technology to bring healthcare services to the patient. Advocates claim the applications of mHealth are numerous, aiding with: remote monitoring, behavior modification, data collection, step-by-step instruction, question and answer forums, doctor visits, and even diagnosis.
Join us as our panel will provide their expert advice and answer your questions, as we ask:

  • Has the public accepted the idea of mHealth? Do they agree that a "remote" doctor consultation provides value to the patients and improves the care process?
  • Does this technology interfere with the professional ethos of physicians to examine and treat individuals holistically?
  • Are there privacy concerns involved in taking healthcare to the communication networks?
  • What are the Telehealth, Web, and Mobile phone models, and why does the model you use suit your needs best?
  • What's in the future for mHealth?
