As mobile health (mHealth) industry matures, new technology innovations are enabling the promise to ubiquitous and continuous monitoring of consumer's health. Wearable devices and smartphones are getting cheaper and more sophisticated, with different types of biometric and motion sensors capturing an array of vital signs. Samsung’s Gear 2 smart watch, fitness wearable and Galaxy S5 smartphone interconnected wirelessly and equipped with heart rate sensors, pacemakers and health apps are good examples.
This panel will focus on how such mobile and wireless technology innovations are enabling the future of ubiquitous monitoring of consumer health and remote patient care that can truly revolutionize illness prevention. How far and soon can such technology innovations advance? What compelling use cases, apps, and services will be built leveraging them? How will smartphones or wearable fitness devices enabled with bio sensors impact the consumer healthcare industry? How differently will the future mHealth ecosystem evolve? What are the FDA and regulatory implications that might hinder this future?
Our expert panel will address these and other questions from you. You will learn about new mHealth technology innovations that improve efficiency and compliance among device makers, service providers, physicians, patients, and other healthcare stakeholders. Our panelists will enlighten you on what disruptive and converging trends and unique opportunities will arise across the mHealth ecosystem. They will also discuss the benefits and challenges in developing, deploying and using such innovations to achieve these mobile healthcare improvement objectives.

About The WCA
Founded in 1993, the Wireless Communications Alliance (aka "WCA") is a Silicon Valley-based, all-volunteer, non-profit corporation dedicated to providing opportunities for education, connection, and community in the wireless industry. The WCA accomplishes these goals by hosting seminars/panels; providing networking opportunities; encouraging and supporting start-ups and entrepreneurs; and helping to build and maintain bridges between business and academia. Supporting academia and technical education is a primary goal of the WCA. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the WCA is near several world-class universities, colleges, and think tanks. Despite the meteoric rise in mobile technology, research has shown that only 5% of incoming college freshmen identify wireless as a career goal. To help ensure a strong talent pool in the coming decade the WCA invites college students to attend our events at no charge in the hopes that exposure to the wireless industry will encourage the them to shift their major and course focus towards wireless.
