About the Summit

Mobile Health is emerging as a significant growth opportunity for companies looking to capitalize on advances in wireless healthcare utilizing M2M technology.

According to recent studies, analysts forecast that the potential value of the mHealth market is to be approximately $4.6 billion as early as 2014. It highlights the importance of wireless as an important crossover point for the healthcare sector and high-tech industry. Device and service connectivity is the model for future care applications, and mobile networks will link a growing number of monitoring products to healthcare providers.

The Annual Wireless Healthcare Asia Summit is the premier forum connecting the mobile and wireless health ecosystem for mHealth deployment, research & education, thought leadership, exhibits showcase and action-provoking panel discussions. The Conference sessions will explore, examine, and debate the ways mobile technology is transforming health care delivery, research, business and policy in Asia Pacific & globally.

Innovative healthcare providers and practitioners believe that wireless health is not just another solution but a new paradigm in the way healthcare is provisioned, monitored, assessed and delivered. Concurrently mobile network operators are looking at incremental revenue from this sector. MNOs are beginning to deliver life-changing value added services in their efforts to increase customer retention and boost market share.

Hospitals & clinicians are increasingly empowering the patient to proactively track his or her biometric health information and then transmit usable data into personal health records, or to doctors, care coordinators or loved ones. These technologies are at the forefront of the changing face of healthcare. Against the backdrop of healthcare reform, Asia's aging population and the growing burden of chronic diseases, there is an unprecedented interest to tap into wireless technologies and introduce a new era of medical devices and healthcare delivery. There is a critical need to enable this healthcare delivery options beyond in-person encounters in order to make care more accessible to more patients, whenever and wherever needed. A new frontier for Telehealth is emerging across Asia Pacific.

Only this Summit offers unique insights into how to drive
Wireless & Mobile Health services.
