Keynote Speakers, Educational Seminar and Exhibits to Focus on Mobile’s Impact on Healthcare

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 2, 2011 – As mobile connectivity becomes nearly ubiquitous, International CTIA WIRELESS® 2011 will feature innovations demonstrating how mobility is transforming the health sector. On Wednesday, March 23, CTIA’s “Wireless Health Day” will include a variety of activities, including a keynote, educational seminar and special reception. Throughout the show, CTIA’s Wireless Health Pavilion will showcase mHealth technologies on the exhibit floor. International CTIA WIRELESS will take place March 22-24, 2011 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Pre-conference seminars will begin on March 21.

The Wireless Health Pavilion, produced by CTIA and strategic partner Qualcomm, will feature products and services from a variety of companies: BodyMedia, Continua, Diversinet, Doro, Keynetik, LifeComm, Optumhealth, Preventice, Telcare and the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance, among others.

“Wireless health offers a variety of benefits for patients and caregivers to improve medical treatment while simultaneously reducing costs. Over the last three years, mHealth has become a prominent fixture at CTIA events, and this spring CTIA is convening some of the world’s mHealth leaders to share what’s next for this developing industry,” said Robert Mesirow, CTIA vice president and show director. “Home to Lake Nona Medical City – a community of 25,000 residents, two new hospitals and three biomedical research institutes and medical schools – Orlando is a perfect venue for this discussion. CTOs, CIOs and hospital administrators from these institutions are attending International CTIA WIRELESS so they can continue to interact with wireless industry executives and integrate mHealth into their programs.”
