Health on the Go: The Law & Business of mHealth

Beginning April 3, 2014

8:00 AM-2:00 PM

Health care is moving from the doctor’s office to the palm of the hand, with 500 million people expected to use mobile health apps by 2015. This shift creates tremendous opportunities for entrepreneurs, providers, clinicians and patients but also significant risks. How will the mHealth revolution affect each segment of the health care ecosystem, and how will regulators seek to protect the public from potential threats? This conference will explore such questions from business, legal, and technical perspectives, enabling the health care system to draw a roadmap for the future.
