Mobile Health Interoperability
The proliferation of mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, combined with wireless medical devices, presents an opportunity to have patients more engaged in their healthcare. Mobile applications allow patients to view their blood pressure, glucose, and other measurements in real-time, even on a daily basis. However, the data collected from these devices comes in a variety of data formats. The lack of interoperability causes a barrier to the healthcare provider. This presentation discusses the benefits of interoperability and efforts under way to achieve interoperability in mobile health.
