The Mobile Health Track  features speakers and panelists from both healthcare and technology organizations discussing what is working today and what is needed to continue innovation and adoption.

Today, thousands of mobile apps and hundreds of devices are used for accessing information online, patient-provider communications, and gathering biometric data and this is changing the way consumers and healthcare providers deal with both illness and wellness.  Some of the drivers of change include consumer interest in wellness and fitness, new technologies to help manage chronic illnesses at home, and the adoption of electronic systems for medical records and medical images. In developing countries, mobile technology is helping bring healthcare expertise to remote areas.
