3rd Forum:
Future is Now: The Era of Mobile Health

A smart phone comes with a built-in heart rate sensor located just beneath the camera checking your beats per minute. A wrist watch can count your calories and steps, track your workouts, and monitor your heart rate. Whether your goal is monitoring your health for medical reasons, or just losing weight, or simply to live a better life, wearable and related health apps can help you do that. The term mHealth is used for the practice of medicine and public health supported by mobile devices and information and communication technology(ICT). Remote biometric monitoring enabled older people to remain independently at home, cloud platform based technologies are transforming clinical developments into easier, cheaper, and faster procedures. With Mobile health technologies, better treatments and health services can reach waiting patients much sooner and better. In 3rd New York Health Forum, mHealth experts and industry leaders will sit together to share their insights and discuss to explore best solutions to navigate the Era of mobile health.
