The Race is On, the Time is Now
Healthcare in the United States has reached a critical juncture. A recent Wall Street Journal article details the Congressional limitations on Medicare trained practitioners and how this has resulted in a dramatic shortage of doctors. This, coupled with a proposed cut of nearly $60 billion in doctor training through 2020, calls for new solutions to provide care for the nearly 32 million additional Americans expected to be insured under healthcare reform and the 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 each day.
Significant advances in mobile technology are helping to fill this void, as evidenced by a recent story in the New York Times, creating tremendous opportunities for both medical service providers and mobile innovators to work together to streamline patient care. Join us on March 28th to discover how this technological sea change will affect you and your profession and answer questions such as:
Can mHealth actually improve care and reduce costs?
What are the key drivers for the mHealth marketplace today and looking ahead?
What are the main barriers facing mHealth?
Will consumers pay for mHealth?
Mobile solutions are changing the face of healthcare and what is on the horizon?
What therapeutic areas offer the biggest business potential?
How can mHealth be effectively integrated into the healthcare ecosystem?
What are the attributes of the smartphone apps, cloud-based services, and mobile internet platforms that constitute the best services?
