European healthcare systems are facing new challenges, such as population ageing and subsequent budget pressures. The use of mobile communication devices as well as mobile health applications has the potential to play major role in the transformation of healthcare and increase its quality and efficiency.
However, while mobile health solutions represent a solid approach to empower the patients and improve their quality of life, and help healthcare practitioners to deliver more accurate care, critical factors need to be addressed, such as privacy and security safeguards, interoperability and standard developments. This event will examine the right way forward to unlock the potential of mHealth in Europe.
