WELCOME TO THE 2015 MHEALTH SUMMIT CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS

DEADLINE HAS PASSED. NOTIFICATIONS WILL BE SENT OUT IN EARLY AUGUST.

ABOUT THE MHEALTH SUMMIT

The mHealth Summit is the premier domestic and international conference and expo for the exchange of research, ideas, innovations and opportunities in mobile and connected health. The largest and most diverse event of its kind, the mHealth Summit convenes thought-leaders from across the healthcare value chain to explore new collaborations, business opportunities and initiatives. This year’s Summit will again feature a concurrent Global mHealth Forum focused on mobile and connected health in low and middle income countries (LMICs).

The 2015 mHealth Summit explores existing and emerging health technologies which enable improved communication and care coordination, clinical outcomes and efficiencies.  Technologies changing care delivery include mobile devices and apps, telehealth services and personal connected health.

2015 MHEALTH SUMMIT THEME

The 2015 mHealth Summit theme, “Anytime, Anywhere: Engaging Providers and Patients” will put a spotlight on the shift to mobile, patient-centered healthcare delivery as well as consumer adoption of wearables, apps and personal health devices. The mHealth Summit program will feature presentations highlighting new information, evidence (validated and market research, and case studies) and market activity in the past 12 months, as well as select training workshops on key topics in mobile and connected health.

The mHealth Summit Program Committee is interested in proposals that highlight connected and coordinated care resulting in savings and improved outcomes for patients, health care providers, payers, and ACOs. There is also an interest in how connected health can assist pharmaceutical and life science companies to grow markets, and for wireless carriers to connect individuals to care. The Summit welcomes proposals from government agencies, non-profits, investors, and startups.

ABOUT THE GLOBAL MHEALTH FORUM

The Global mHealth Forum (GmHF) brings together public and private sector organizations to share the latest evidence, experiences and lessons learned with regard to new applications and approaches in mHealth. GmHF attracts a diverse group of program managers, implementers, policy makers, mobile and technology providers, and private and public sector health providers; as well as entrepreneurs, investors, funders and researchers working in LMICs.The objectives of the Forum are to enhance the capacity of governments, donors, civil society, NGOs, and social entrepreneurs to design, implement and evaluate mHealth initiatives in LMICs; and to provide a space for global health stakeholders working in LMICs to network and share knowledge.
