Can Mobile Technology Completely Transform Healthcare?
Remarkable advances in miniaturized computing power and connectivity over the last several decades have changed nearly every aspect of our lives, but they have yet to make a substantial impact on healthcare. However, mobile health (mHealth) technologies currently being developed are capable of enabling unprecedented changes in the manner and quality of clinical care available to the growing majority of the world’s population with mobile connectivity. This presentation will review the great deal of ongoing work being carried out, much in San Diego, to establish the true capabilities and potential value of the evolving field of mHealth.
Dr. Steinhubl is the Director of Digital Medicine at STSI and a cardiologist at Scripps Health, Scripps Clinic. He received his undergraduate training in chemical engineering at Purdue University in Indiana, graduate training in physiology at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and his medical degree at St. Louis University in Missouri.
Dr. Steinhubl’s research activities have covered a broad range of topics in cardiology with a primary early focus on trials of novel antithrombotic therapies for the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease, and more recently on the application of an integrated systems-based approach to the optimal identification, communication and treatment of an individual’s risk for various manifestations of cardiovascular disease. He has been principal investigator or helped lead over a dozen large-scale, international randomized trials and has authored nearly 200 peer-reviewed manuscripts as well as numerous book chapters, and abstracts.
