Description: Have you ever heard the terms “mobile health (mHealth),” “digital health,” or “wearables”? Have you ever had a patient who wanted you to review the data they collected on their smartphone or other device? Have you ever recommended an medical app to a patient? Faculty will take you on a visual journey through the evolving landscape of mobile health. This guided interactive discussion will highlight what you need to know about how medical apps are being increasingly used by both patients and physicians and how these can be incorporated into current practice. Several demos of relevant medical apps will be performed. Other concerns including the amount of evidence that exists for the use of medical apps, HIPAA, and security issues will also be discussed.
