Earlier this month the MobiHealthNews team was on-site at the TEDMED conference in San Diego and the Foundation for the NIH’s mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C. where we met with a number of wireless health lumiaries, including Contagion Health’s Jen McCabe; Frontline SMS:Medic’s Josh Nesbit; West Wireless Health Institute’s Gary West, Mehran Mehregany and Dr. Eric Topol; and Qualcomm’s Don Jones. We asked each of these wireless health experts a few questions about the events or current trends in the industry.
While at TEDMED, MobiHealthNews also captured a quick demo of Philips Electronics’ recently launched activity monitor, DeviceLink.
Continue on for a slideshow of the video interviews and demo from TEDMED and mHS09 earlier this month.
Jen McCabe, Founder, Contagion Health
Key quote from McCabe: “I don’t think we will see any real systemic benefit from mHealth until we have more Web integration.”
Another key quote from McCabe: “I can’t get my [health] data in the real world. I can’t access it [on my mobile] either. I can enter what I want, but I can’t send that to my doctor in a meaningful way. I can’t get it back from them in a way that means anything to me personally. Even worse, there’s usually a penalty for getting my data in the real world.” (More on Regina Holliday’s story, which McCabe referenced during the interview.)
