Moore’s Law and The Future of Health Care by Wayne Caswell
As founder and senior editor of Modern Health Talk, I see the future of mHealth as less about Mobile health and more about modern healthcare that includes all sorts of solutions for addressing demographic shift of retiring baby boomers and the resulting doctor shortage. These solutions include mobile technologies (smartphones & tablets) and big broadband support of high-def video calls with medical imaging, as well as new delivery options such as retail clinics and insurance-funded home care (and home modifications), remote sensor monitoring, healthcare robots, Watson-like cloud services, new laws & regulations, support of family caregivers, and more.
