At one time in the not-too-distant past, one might have looked at the term 'mHealth' and thought it was a typo.
Not any more.
As evidenced by the agenda for the 2013 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, beginning Sunday in New Orleans, mHealth is a force to be reckoned with. From the pre-conference workshops on Sunday to the Exhibit Hall to the education sessions and keynotes, mobile healthcare is rapidly emerging as one of the most intriguing aspects of the ever-shifting healthcare landscape.
Here's a sample of what's on tap at this year's conference:
The Mobile Health Knowledge Center – located at booth 8247 in the Ernest B. Morial Convention Center, the booth offers the latest in wireless health concepts and technologies, along with an array of 30-minute education sessions during regular Exhibit Hall hours (see below for details).
General Education sessions
The following sessions are listed as part of the mHealth track for HIMSS13:
Monday, March 4
Tuesday, March 5
Wednesday, March 6
Thursday, March 7
Topol keynote – On Tuesday, March 5, HIMSS will present a keynote by Eric J. Topol, West Endowed Chairman of Innovative Medicine at San Diego-based Scripps Health and professor of genomics with the Scripps Research Institute. A noted cardiologist and author of The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care, Topol is a well-regarded regular on the lecture circuit who often speaks about how digital technology is giving consumers control of their own healthcare information and changing the healthcare delivery landscape. Topol's keynote will take place from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in Great Hall A.
