mHealth Won’t Be Overshadowed at CES 2013

As the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show begins Tuesday in Las Vegas, some of tomorrow’s most promising technologies will take center stage. And while ample attention will befall the myriad high tech toys poised to make life more convenient and enjoyable for the modern mobile masses, a significant spotlight will also shine upon innovations in the mobile health arena.

Just this morning, Asthmapolis announced that founder and CEO David Van Sickle will discuss breakthroughs in mobile health, medical devices and the cloud in a keynote panel later this week at CES.

“2013 is going to be a turning point for digital health, so I’m delighted to join this panel to talk about the promise of mobile and cloud based technologies in healthcare,” said Van Sickle. “With a record number of medical devices and apps being showcased at CES, it’s clear that the Digital Health Summit is harnessing the momentum of this exciting movement.”

Van Sickle’s panel – “Why Healthcare Has Its Head in the Cloud” – will also include a number of mHealth industry heavyweights and pioneers, each of whom will expertly further the discussion about the growing fusion between healthcare and mobile technologies.

MHW is excited to attend this year’s convention and will provide copious feedback on all the mHealth-related news and developments straight from the floor in Las Vegas beginning tomorrow.
