4th Annual mHealth World Congress

July 25-27, 2012 - Boston, MA: Mobile health (mHealth) is a revolution, changing everything in the healthcare industry from the way consumers engage in healthy behaviors to the way patients manage their care; from how physicians manage their practices to payers interact with their members. Thousands of apps for smartphones and sophisticated health monitoring tools have been developed to not only improve efficiency for care management, but also open up new lines of communication between physicians and their patients and colleagues.

The 4th Annual mHealth World Congress gathers international health care and technology executives to discuss the latest applications and strategic initiatives for mobile technologies as they transform the future of health care. Over two days attendees will have the opportunity to engage in keynote presentations, debates, summits, case studies, and innovation trend forums to hear from healthcare providers, health plans, developers, employers manufacturers, and distributors on the opportunities and the sustainable business models being rapidly deployed that are changing access and delivery of care.

Role of Wireless ICT in Health Care and Wellness

Attendees interested in the mHealth World Congress will find particular interest in a new report from Practel.

The cost of healthcare is rising every year, having reached 16% to 17% of the US GDP consuming at least one percent of GDP each year. Wide utilization of wireless communications can reduce healthcare costs by billions of dollars on an annual basis, with much of that savings derived by reducing hospitalizations and extending independent living for seniors. Practels new Wireless ICT market research report concentrates on recent contributions of wireless communications in health care and fitness to enhance the quality of service together with the significant cost reduction.

The report addresses recent advances of wireless technologies in medical/fitness applications, and in particular: WICT standardization for the Body Area Network (WBAN) and Medical Body Area Network (WMBAN); Bluetooth technology and its medical profile; ZigBee technology; low-power consumption Wi-Fi; and Z-Wave technology. All these technologies can satisfy, in various degrees, major requirements that the health care industry is asking for: a combination of extremely low power sensor consumption and very low transmitted power together with high reliability and quality of service (QoS).

This report will prove remarkably useful for service providers, hospitals and other medical organizations IT departments, retail operators, vendors, network operators and managers, investors, and end users seeking to gain a deeper understanding of new trends in the wireless communications medical applications.
