“The potential of mobile technologies for managing both chronic and acute disease is just beginning to be fully realised”, says Emma Pearce, Mobile Health Global 2012’s conference director. “No matter the marketplace, mobile phones are being harnessed to drive a permanent change in global healthcare. From preventing pandemics to changing patient attitudes and behaviour; mHealth is only just getting started.”

She says mobile technology will be instrumental in closing gaps in healthcare efficiency, tackling the global disease burden and transforming patient attitudes towards their own healthcare: “mHealth empowers people to be well through putting the patient at the heart of the ecosystem – and at the heart of their own healthcare.”

Too many mHealth pilots
According to Mobile Health Global 2012’s conference director, the impact, ease and cost-efficiency of mHealth technologies are prompting governments and donor agencies to invest more resources in mHealth initiatives; yet mHealth’s potential is being hampered by a lack of measurable deliverables. She notes: “this is what we call ‘pilotitus’ in the industry, where many NGOs get funded for relatively similar pilot projects and then there is no resource left to scale.”

More industry challenges that will be addressed at Mobile Health Global 2012 are patient centricity and data protection. Emma Pearce explains: “some of the pertinent questions in the mHealth industry today are around how much access the patient should have to their own electronic health records, and who manages privacy of these records. Especially with the advent of Big Data and cloud computing, new systems of information collection and dissemination are being put into place across the mHealth ecosystem; but the regulation for the management of these records via these platforms is relatively non-existent.”
