Click through for eight projects that show that the mobilization of health delivers on the promise of modern telecommunications.
The world of mobile health goes by a number of names: mHealth, telehealth, eHealth, telemedicine and remote medicine. The goal, however, remains the same: encouraging diagnostics and treatment in scenarios in which patient and professional are in different places.
The broad sector is gaining momentum. A good example is the University of California, San Francisco’s Health eHeart Study, aimed at testing the impact of eHealth on cardiovascular health. USA Today reports that the school hopes to enroll one million people in the program. That not only illustrates that the project is considered important and promising, but that there is a growing acceptance of remote health techniques and technology.
Whatever it’s called, the mobilization of health delivers on the promise of modern telecommunications.
