As part of its global mHealth initiative, the Health Debate series by Vodafone Global Enterprise brings together public and private health stakeholders in order to promote thought leadership in healthcare. The series is helping to push issues and share new ways of thinking forward by renowned thought leaders and industry experts.
Alongside the Heath Debate, Vodafone has published a series of insight guides. The first in the series examined barriers presented by human behaviour: issues of culture change for healthcare organisations, doctors, and patients. The second guide covered politics and economics: the need for governments to develop new policies and strategies for healthcare delivery to embrace the new world of flexible, mobile services centred on the patient.
The latest guide in the series continues the discussion around the varying barriers to mHealth technology adoption by focussing on two prominent issues: privacy and regulation. Research shows both doctors and healthcare funders list privacy and security concerns as barriers to greater use of mHealth; whilst the US Federal Communications Commission formed an mHealth task force to explore its regulatory capacity for mHealth technologies. These, and other developments within mHealth, lead to Vodafone examining the implications in more detail in the report.
“As mobile systems become ever more powerful and interconnected, we enter a brave new world. There are technical challenges to face, with hardware, software and networks; and there are cultural challenges, within healthcare organisations and for patients. The debate around these challenges starts here,” says Tony Kane, Head of mHealth Solutions Vodafone Global Enterprise.
