Title: Mobile Technologies for Health, presented as part of the CITRIS Research Exchange Seminar at the University of California, Berkeley.
About the presentation:
Mobile and wireless health (mHealth) technologies promise to transform health and health care. Coupled with electronic health record (EHR), genomic, social, environmental, and other data, mHealth data has the potential to advance our understanding of disease, improve diagnosis and treatment, and lower healthcare costs in ways previously unimaginable. But mHealth technologies are not being widely used in clinical care or research. Dr. Sim will discuss both the promise and the challenges of mobile technologies for health.
