This session will incorporate a panel of speakers from varying positions in the healthcare industry and will aim to address the many uses of mobile health apps and their role in patient's and clinician's care plans.
Currently there is an overabundance of apps for patients, but about only a small percentage of mobile apps are created for clinician use. This session will incorporate speakers that can address both the pros and cons of mobile health apps and their use and also, from a clinicians perspective, what a useful mobile health app would look like to them.
In this session we also want to explore the role of mobile health apps in a patients care plan, and their use in possibly replacing live human interaction. We will discuss privacy issues, and how creators of mobile health apps are addressing issues in protecting patients health information.
