In the coming years, mHealth - the provision of health services by mobile communications - will revolutionize the way healthcare is delivered. This technology will cut the costs associated with provision while maintaining and improving quality of care and reaching patients for whom access to healthcare has until now been limited.

Join NEIBC for an insightful discussion on how mobile devices and services are changing the healthcare landscape and hear from industry experts how they are dealing with issues that are arising in the industry, such as security, privacy and FDA regulations to name a few.
