MHX 2011 Conference Report

A highlights report on Day 2 of the recent Mobile Health Expo (MHX) 2011 in NYC. Some points:

  • mHealth as the convergence of social media (SM) and healthcare (HC) or wellness care (WC)
  • 7,000–or 2%–of Apple AppStore apps are clinically related
  • Need safeguards for such mHealth apps as diabetic insulin dose calculators;  doctors very wary due to risk and liability, not to mention significant implications for HIPAA privacy and security
  • social support a key motivator

Many thanks to reader Bill Oravecz of EHR and health management consultancy WTO Associates.  Report
