Mobile health (mHealth) provides unprecedented opportunities to measure dynamic changes in health and physical, biological, behavioral, social, and environmental factors that contribute to health and disease risk. Over the last decade, a significant number of mHealth technologies have been developed and applied to health research. They include wearable and mobile sensors for data collection; discovery and validation of novel mHealth biomarkers; software platforms for large-scale participant enrollment and data collection; big data software for data analysis, visualization, and discovery; and mobile apps for self-monitoring and intervention.
An mHealth Technology Showcase will bring together technology developers and health researchers to discuss how these communities can work together to improve the specificity, reliability, and validity of health indicators measured by wearable and mobile sensors.
For more information and to register, visit the mHealth Technology Showcase website. Registration is free.
