The Wireless Health Academic/Industry Conference was established in 2010 to provide the highest profile academic and industrial research forum for the emerging field of Wireless Health. The mission of the Wireless Health conference is to include and promote an international community that will accelerate the development and adoption of this new vision for healthcare. Central to this objective is to create a nurturing research forum that communicates the latest developments in the field, creates an opportunity for cross fertilization, and provides an archival venue for the progress being achieved.
This second in the series of the Wireless Health conference seeks to build upon the success of Wireless Health 2010, which included more than 400 attendees from academia, industry, government, and press. Wireless Health 2010 included an outstanding set of peer-reviewed papers, interactive workshops, industrial and academic application demonstrations, topical panel discussions, and world renowned invited speakers.
Wireless Health 2011 will provide a critical networking opportunity that links each of the Wireless Health communities and organizations – ranging from the academic, engineering, medical and industry communities to the federal, regulatory and standards communities – together in one forum. It also provides a valuable and timely education event that informs each of the communities about opportunities that occur in this new field combining healthcare, wireless technology, information technology, and a broad set of new products and services.
