Wireless Life Sciences Alliance (http://wirelesslifesciences.org):
Vision: A future in which healthcare is connected, consumer-centric, distributed and integrated seamlessly across all providers irrespective of the venue.
Mission: to create open and honest conferences and forums, in the real and virtual world, where we bring together the individuals and organizations who will create constructive cross-functional dialogue on health and healthcare delivery. These discussions lead to collaboration to develop and deploy new cross-functional multi-disciplinary solutions.
In November 2012, Scanadu, a new personalized health electronics company, unveiled the first three products in its family of consumer health tools: Scanadu SCOUT, Project ScanaFlu and Project ScanaFlo. Based at NASA-Ames Research Center, Scanadu is using mobile, sensor and social technology to ensure this is the last generation to know so little about our health. The newly introduced home diagnostic tools are set to be the biggest innovation in home medicine since the invention of the thermometer.
