MobCon Digital Health is an event put on by the team at MobCon, focused exclusively on digital health and advances in technology that impact health, wellness, and business. Featuring presentations by some of the top minds and most innovative folks in the digital health space, it's sure to be a terrific event and we're proud to be a media partner.
During the show, Dan and Brian discuss the following:
The Medical Internet of Things. With the mass consumer adoption of wearables, sensors, and so forth, what implications does that have as it relates to data? The answer: many!
Can Big Data Help With Diagnostics? This is fascinating stuff, for sure. At least it is for tech geeks like us. Dan and Brian touch on the overall usage of Big Data in modern medicine, reducing the need for trial-and-error medicine, cost savings in healthcare, potential pitfalls such as privacy issues/patient information. This is where the importance of data comes into play and where dirty data can lead to lost revenue and lost opportunities.
How to Win at the Digital Health Game. The future of Digital health is huge business, with $7.4 billion flowing into the space since 2010. How to capitalize? Dan and Brian talk about why digital healthcare entrepreneurs are looking directly to consumers nowadays and also discuss regulatory issues.
It's a great episode and if you're interested in the digital health space, we'd love your thoughts.
