Mobile technology is empowering patients and providers, giving them greater control over their health and access to information, as noted in a recent report by the Deloitte Centre for Health Solutions. According to MobiHealthNews, 36 health apps and connected solutions were approved by the FDA in 2016 alone.
The Mobile Wellness Management Challenge - the first in the Health Technology Innovator QuickFire Challenge series - will kick off March 9, 2018 and run through June 1, 2018. Ongoing advances in health technology provide multiple touch points to positively impact patients. Health Technology can be a primary mode of interface, a service offering, or a layer on top of traditional device and/or therapeutic offerings. Wellness and behavioral management applications integrated into mobile and wireless technology are propelling improvements in health outcomes, healthcare services and health research.
Developments in health technology, specifically within mobile, offer the ability to drastically scale improved health care across the globe. Providing better access and care in more places in the world is one of Johnson & Johnson's key commitments in reaching a healthier 2020.
