Health Information as Health Care: The Role of Mobile in Unlocking Health Data

mHealth Summit 2010

On the occasion of the 2010 mHealth Summit, please join the United Nations Foundation, the Vodafone Foundation Technology Partnership, and the mHealth Alliance for a luncheon discussion of the forthcoming report:

Health Information as Health Care: The Role of Mobile in Unlocking Health Data

This report examines the ecosystem of patient-related health information, tracing data pathways throughout the continuum of care, and from patients in villages to international health organizations and the most important steps in between.

It aims to serve as a map for identifying barriers, choke points and other inefficiencies in current system that may impede progress toward effective health systems transformation, and maternal health goals, and provides recommendations for leveraging modern ICTs to address health data flow challenges.

Please join us to discuss the impact and role health information flows, and information and communications technologies (ICTs), particularly wireless, have on global health. We will open with a brief overview of key findings from our forthcoming report, and then move into a discussion of the key gaps in data flows in health systems.
