Mobile Health: Getting Mobile into the System - What We’ve Learnt so Far

A session at Mobile World Congress 2012

  • Pramod Gaur Ph. D.
  • Sailesh Chutani Ph.D.
  • Richard Moore

Monday 27th February, 2012

2:00pm to 3:30pm (WET)

Most of the successes in mobile health to date have been built from the bottom up: small but impactful projects that help communities with anything from increasing access to health information to improving maternal care. But the real step change for mobile health will come from national and international scale, which means, in many cases, getting mobile into existing government and private health systems.

There are still many and varied systemic barriers to scaling mobile health, but progress is being made. The US Food and Drug Administration recently began to approve mobile health applications and is expected to issue guidance on mHealth devices in 2012. It is just this sort of progress that is vital to building confidence to invest in mHealth.

This session will look at what has been done to date to get mobile health integrated into and supported by large health systems. Players from across the ecosystem will offer case studies from their own experience and will discuss what still needs to be done to get the most from mHealth.
