Description: BSSR Lecture Series

Mobile and wireless health (mHealth) technologies offer the potential to advance research, prevent disease, enhance diagnostics, improve treatment, improve adherence, reduce disparities, increase access to health services, and lower healthcare costs in ways previously unimaginable. Real-time, continuous biological, behavioral and environmental data collected by mHealth technologies will improve our understanding of the etiology of health and disease, particularly when integrated with other data such as genomics, biomarkers, and electronic medical records. This panel workshop will explore the use of mHealth to enhance measurement, health research and health outcomes in the US and the global community.

Presenters include:

Santosh Kumar, Ph.D. Mobile Measurement of Behavioral and Social Health at Population Scale University of Memphis

David H. Gustafson, Ph.D. Impact of Smartphone Systems to Improve Patient Outcomes. Results of Randomized Trials University of Wisconsin-Madison
