The West Wireless Health Institute’s Dr. Eric Topol and Qualcomm’s CEO Paul Jacobs were just featured on CNBC in a clip about Internet users increasingly accessing the Web from mobile devices. Of course, the conversation quickly changed gears to focus on wireless healthcare:

“I liken it to the fact that when you have your cell phone with you all the time you feel connected to your friends and family all the time,” Jacobs said. “You are not necessarily talking to them, but you know that you could. The same thing will be true with your doctor. Your doctor could be looking over you without having to monitor you 100 percent of the time because it is happening through your cell phone and a wireless sensor.”
