Telemedicine and Remote Monitoring – A Smartphone Perspective

June 4, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm



The capabilities of smartphones and their platforms will play major roles in driving the practicality of Mobile Health (mHealth) applications, which are expected to impact prevention and treatment methods in diverse medical fields. These emerging mobile applications will require 4G mobile networks (and beyond) for biomedical data transport, including establishing, maintaining, and transmitting health-related information, research, education, and training. This presentation opens the concept of mHealth from an end-to-end perspective, covering biomedical applications, Quality of Service (QoS), security, and cloud computing requirements, including current and future directions.
