  • The industry's premier forum for Mobile Health networking and deal-making with the C- Level leaders of healthcare institutions, mobile network operators, development organisations and solutions providers, as well as regulators and policymakers.
Thought Leadership Conference

MHS 2012 will deliver a thought-leadership conference programme that will cover the hottest topics in mobile health: from service-provider business-models and MNO partnerships, through regulation and privacy, to on-the-ground innovations that are saving lives.

Last year's event brought together the full spectrum of decision makers, influential people and thinkers from across the mobile health value chain to discuss the key topics in mobile health. Speakers from mobile operators, insurance groups, pharma companies, healthcare providers, equipment manufacturers, infrastructure vendors, applications developers and integrators from around the globe presented the latest developments in mobile health and in the ecosystem that supports it.

You can get involved with the development of the 2012 Mobile Health Summit conference programme by submitting to our call for papers process. Call for papers will open on 7 February 2012 and will run for six weeks. The deadline for submission is 22 March 2012. Guidance on the topics for consideration and on the process itself will be provided before February 2012.
