3rd Mobile Health Forum 2016

A German-speaking conference with English-speaking parts


Mobile information and communication technologies open up enormous opportunities for personal healthcare, and also for the related industries such as health, care, fitness and IT.

Mobile Health - or briefly: mhealth - aims at the medical and health care of the future. It’s a mobile life that human beings – doctors, patients and the health conscious – are leading, and so the development and utilisation of mobile digital health technology is also on the move. Mores and more clinics, medical practices, pharmacies, health insurances, patients and private individuals are using mobile devices and medical apps for prevention, diagnosis and therapy.
