Mobile phones are becoming an increasingly important platform for the delivery of health interventions. Phones are used to encourage physical activity and healthy diets, to monitor symptoms of asthma, heart disease, and chemotherapy side effects, and to send patients reminders to take medications and to attend appointments. In this talk, Predrag will discuss why mobile phones are particularly well suited for creation of innovative and effective health interventions, the types of interventions that have been tried so far and the outcomes such interventions are able to achieve, and some of the challenges involved in making mobile health an integral part of the way we deliver healthcare services.
