Today, ACT President Jonathan Zuck traveled to Brussels to speak about the mobile health landscape in Europe at the 2014 European mHealth Conference. Ray Pinto of Microsoft and leaders from the European mobile medical industry joined Jonathan on a panel about developing standards for coordinated, interoperable and universal mHealth solutions, particularly in the area of electronic health records.
mHealth offers new opportunities for better, more efficient health outcomes as innovation in medical devices and apps continues to flourish. Their success greatly depends on the interoperability of patient data across health networks and the development of comprehensive privacy standards.
Since its advent, ACT | The App Association has been at the forefront of the mobile medical revolution. Events like the European mHealth Conference give us the opportunity to come together with leaders from across the globe to help drive the conversation and shape policy in this budding industry.
