“mHealth, telehealth and the digital society: Where does the ‘value’ lie?”

Don’t know how I managed to miss this great presentation at the Healthcare Informatics New Zealand 2012 Conference (November 8, 2012) by Claudia Pagliari PhD FRCPE, Senior Lecturer in Primary Care at The University of Edinburgh Medical School, as the slide deck even features a couple of 3G Doctor plugs:

My thoughts:

A fascinating video but questioning a flawed quote from the mHealth Alliance that “mHealth will save money” doesn’t do anything but highlight a flawed understanding of the opportunity. While a basic misunderstanding like this may not be all that surprising the reality is that it can be very tricky to challenge accepted wisdom: Most of us want to be cared for in our own homes but it’s not going to ever be cheaper.
