Mobile Health: Innovations in Care & the Spectrum Challenge

Are you up to speed on the real health care reform that's increasing access, improving quality and lowering costs? It's being achieved not through legislation but through innovation—in mobile health care: Doctors are embracing mobile devices, allowing them to deliver better patient care both in the office and across the country; hospitals are integrating wireless connectivity to move information immediately to health care providers; and thousands of innovators are developing new mobile apps and other wireless products that will change the face of health care.

However, these advancements in mobile health are threatened by the rapidly dwindling supply of spectrum, which will hinder or even prevent access to medical care communication. Join us July 26 as we examine the explosion of new and innovative ways wireless connectivity is changing the face of health care and the spectrum challenges that could kill real health care reform in its tracks.
