Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit 2009, a unique two-day event set in London on 1-2 December.
Dedicated to best practice in global wireless and healthcare convergence, this four stream conference has been developed with support from the Continua Health Alliance, GSMA, M:Health Alliance, international healthcare providers including the NHS, Bluetooth SIG, Mobihealthnews.com and more, to ensure a real 50:50 representation from across the wireless and healthcare sectors.
In 2009, we are delighted to bring you an exclusive keynote presentation from the Vodafone Group CEO, Vittorio Colao, on convergence trends in ICT and healthcare and in our ‘Everything’s Connected Healthcare’ stream we dig out the very best in medical device innovation and sports/wellness consumer development.
Across both days we assess the business and strategy models for partnerships needed to grow the potential in mobile healthcare and our ‘Mobile Health Investment and Partnering’ Stream reflects how start ups are reaching fruition.
The Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit draws together leading network operators, healthcare providers, (numedical) device manufacturers, investors, systems integrators, body networks developers and sports and wellness brands active in this space. With a focus on interactivity and involvement.

Hospitals roll out hand-held computers giving doctors and nurses instant access to database By Tom Gordon
SCOTLAND IS set to become the first country in the world with an entirely paperless health service, as wireless hand-held computers allow doctors and nurses to check and update patient records wherever they go.
The machines let staff move from bedside to bedside downloading patient histories, test results, and digital x-rays on the electronic equivalent of a clipboard called a mobile clinical assistant (MCA), or toughbook.
Information is delivered through dedicated hospital wi-fi systems, with access to the most sensitive information restricted to senior medical professionals.
Wireless computing and homegrown software turn may turn Scoland’s NHS paperless. When PDA’s didn’t work, Scotland’s NHS turned to Intel designed Medical Computer Assistants or Mobile Clinical Assistants (MCA). These together with Coupled or Computer Access on Wheels (COWs) and a lot of local Scottish software may move the NHS to the first paperless health service.
