The 2014 mHealth Summit, due to be held this month in Washington DC, will start with a two-day symposium on December 6 and 7 to explore mobile devices and apps, wireless technologies, NFC, RFID and RTLS technologies, wearables, ambient sensing and remote monitoring technologies used in a home setting, or in development for home use and in assisted living, nursing home and long term care facilities.

The event is sponsored by the Intelligent Health Association (IHA) in cooperation with the IEEE standards organisation and Frost & Sullivan.

The full summit will be held from December 7 to 11 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington DC, USA.

It will also include a day-long event on December 10 that will examine the leading edge of wearable technology, from glasses to watches to armbands and beyond, and explore what the future holds for ubiquitous computing, both inside the clinic and beyond. This will be sponsored by the IHA and the University of Central Florida.

"We have a great lineup of industry experts, clinical innovators and thought leaders taking part in these two special events during the mHealth Summit,” said Harry P Pappas, founder and CEO of the IHA. “Presentations will focus on case studies, demonstrations and evidence of outcomes with wearable technologies, as well as IMH innovation and deployment, including clinical workflow, business models and partnerships, RoI and outcomes measurement, interoperability, technology selection, privacy and security."
