Mobile technology has become ubiquitous in everyday life, and mobile devices are now being used to improve human health. Wireless medical sensors, or mobile biosensors, allow clinicians and researchers to gather real-time biometric data on a massive scale, via wearable gadgets and implantable medical devices. The information retrieved from mobile biosensors could revolutionize how clinical research is conducted and how disease therapies are delivered.
On September 30 and October 1, 2015, professionals from science, engineering, analytics, health care, business, and government gathered for a conference on Mobile Health: The Power of Wearables, Sensors, and Apps to Transform Clinical Trials, presented by Medidata and the New York Academy of Sciences. Participants explored the promise of wearable biosensors and mobile apps to improve patient care and clinical outcomes. The conference featured presentations on new devices and on commercial and clinical implementation and regulation of technology. Speakers discussed strategies for managing data from mobile devices and described the broad societal implications of mobile health technologies, including legal and data-privacy considerations.
