A fascinating read and although there are plenty of gaps (video being a very obvious one) there are some great insights from a wide selection of passionate mHealth evangelists in the 22 page report including:
‘Mobile heath accessibility, trial and error’
Tracy “Bud” Lawrence MD, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital
‘Patient-centric mobile EMR’
by the GravityTank team
￼￼￼￼￼￼If I had to pick a favorite line it would be Regina Holliday’s:
“As the team listed item after item, I knew the school system would struggle to provide even a quarter of the devices my son would need. Appropriate accommodations were almost unattainable then, but today virtually all my son’s requirements can be provided by the iPhone in my back pocket. 2013 is a very different landscape in both education and health. While some institutions, organizations and individuals still lumber about using tools and technology more appro- priate for yesteryear, quite a few patients have embraced the possibilities of mobile health via tablet or smartphone. If a patient logs on to their patient portal and does not understand a word or term, it takes only seconds to copy and paste that text into a search field. If a patient is searching for the best path to reach the closest hospital there is an app for that. And why settle for closest? Services such as Yelp provide insight that a hospital five more miles away may have much better care”
