Mobile Health Forum March 28, Philadelphia

“How Mobile Devices and Services are Changing the Healthcare Landscape – A Guide for Entrepreneurs and Healthcare Providers”

Date: Monday, March 28th

Time: 5:00pm – 8:30pm

Location: College of Physicians of Philadelphia (22nd and Market Street)

Mobile Monday Mid-Atlantic welcomes you to join two distinguished panels of world class entrepreneurs, clinicians, venture capitalists, privacy & security experts, and technologists for the 2nd annual Mobility in Healthcare event.

Healthcare in the United States has reached a critical juncture. A recent Wall Street Journal article details the Congressional limitations on Medicare trained practitioners and how this has resulted in a dramatic shortage of doctors. This, coupled with a proposed cut of nearly $60 billion in doctor training through 2020, calls for new solutions to provide care for the nearly 32 million additional Americans expected to be insured under healthcare reform and the 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 each day.

The Race is On, the Time is Now:

Advances in mobile technology are helping to fill this void, as evidenced by a recent story in the New York Times, creating tremendous opportunities for both medical service providers and mobile innovators to work together to streamline patient care. According to Parks Associates, mobile health industry revenues in 2010 hit $1.7 billion, and the projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the next five years will be 27%, reaching $4 billion by 2013.

Join us on March 28th to determine how this technological sea change will affect your profession and answer questions such as:

· Can mHealth actually improve care and reduce costs?

· What are the key drivers for the mHealth marketplace today and looking ahead?
