Policy Workshop for Smartphones and Other Mobile Devices in Healthcare

Most provider institutions are struggling with policy setting related to the new phenomenon called mHealth. More and more of their clinicians are using smartphones on a daily basis - to access, document, or transmit patient-related information, as well as to confer with their colleagues and to consult online resources through the Internet or mobile apps. Some provider organizations are buying iPhones, iPads, and/or other mDevices for their nurses and physicians. Others are providing funding. Others are allowing clinicians to select and use their own mDevices.  But what about policies for mHealth?

Come to mHealth Initiative's policy workshop for brainstorming and policy guidance about the utilization of smartphones and other mobile devices in healthcare.
