Description: Summit Mission
The mission of the mHealth Summit is to explore the use of mobile technologies to improve public health, particularly regarding underserved populations; health research, training, and education applications; and delivery systems, in the U.S. and around the world.

Summit Overview
Mobile technologies have the potential to transform global health care on many fronts, from research and diagnostics to training and preventative interventions. Targeting experts from such diverse fields as medical research, software design, clinical health care, hardware manufacture and network transmission, the summit hopes to spur development and deployment of innovative, practical, affordable and effective solutions to health challenges in underserved and resource-poor populations.
In addition to reviewing current tools and research from a wide spectrum of stakeholders, the summit will foster inter-disciplinary collaboration that could identify entirely new opportunities that team existing mobile-industry companies with emerging public health facilitators.

Summit Goals
  • Assess current policies regarding mobile health technologies and their use in reducing or eliminating domestic and global health disparities.
  • Build a bridge between biomedical researchers and mobile technology experts to identify mHealth solutions.
  • Foster integration of mobile and medical technology to improve delivery of health care to underserved populations.
  • Discuss and craft a vision for mHealth technologies moving forward.
