Brookings Oct 22nd Panel Discusses Burgeoning Mobile Healthcare Technologies

October 22, 2013
The Brookings Institution, 2:00-3:30 pm Washington DC

The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC

With the launch of Affordable Care Act earlier this month, Americans have begun adapting to the new health care system and are rethinking health care innovation. Health care access, affordability and quality are problems in many places all around the world – often the result of income and geography. With the ever-increasing use of mobile phones and tablets, mobile advances – such as applications, sensors, remote monitoring devices and electronic resources – are changing how individuals interact with their physicians, gain access to medical care and take responsibility for their health.

On October 22, as part of the Mobile Economy Project, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host an event on how specific mobile applications and inventions are transforming health care and the ways regulators and governments are working to facilitate their use. Panelists will discuss the types of applications and services that are being created and how mobile technology can help health care workers provide more effective care and enable patients to lead healthier lives.

The event will be webcast and live Tweeted at hashtag #TechCTI. After the program, speakers will take audience questions.
