Join a Live Debate: Is mHealth an Extender or Disruptor of Existing Healthcare Infrastructure?

By Wayan Vota on November 10, 2010

New technologies in healthcare offer the opportunity for significant changes in how problems are identified, addressed and solved. Mobile technologies, in particular, offer new ways for medical providers to reach patients.

As part of the mHealth Summit, Richard Gallagher will be moderating a Live mHealth Debate that seeks to find which impacts mHealth will have on existing health infrastructure:

  1. Will mHealth extend the geographic and income reach of existing health infrastructures, making current services more efficient, or
  2. Will mHealth disrupt existing health infrastructures, creating new provider, distribution and patient networks, and marginalize or make obsolete current business models – in fact, create entire alternative health ecosystems?

The in-person debate will feature a full panel of discussants, and you can add your opinion to the discussion. Just text the keyword EXTEND or DISRUPT and your opinion to +1.202.506.0148 from anywhere in the world.

Your vote will be added to the debate and you can follow the action on the mHealth Summit tweet feed.
