A Call for Papers on Mobile Health

Mobile health, or mHealth, uses mobile technologies such as cellphones, smartphones, tablet computers, and personal digital assistants as platforms for health research, education, and health delivery. These technologies—and the healthcare applications that run on them—promise to dramatically change the delivery of healthcare, and have the potential to ultimately improve clinical outcomes and lower costs. What do these trends mean for those who develop, implement, manage, and use medical devices?

  • Factors behind the mHealth trend
  • Overview of mHealth technologies
  • Regulation of mHealth technologies
  • Mobile devices: accuracy, image quality, software version control, and more
  • Testing and performance validation
  • Managing suppliers and supplier quality
  • Design and usability of mHealth devices
  • Device security and privacy issues
  • Workflow impact on clinician interactions with technology and patients
  • Analysis of clinician needs and wishes in mobile health
