Israel, world leader in mHealth

Israel, world leader in mHealth

First there was eHealth or electronic health and then there was mHealth or mobile health, any health technology that uses a wearable or mobile communications device. This could include a nurse’s hand-sanitizer tracker or a fitness app. For the individual this means having more data to hand over to the clinician on your sugar levels, heart rate and mood. For the masses it means making population healthcare more efficient and less of a burden on the taxpayer.

In 1980, Israel became the first country in the world to roll out mandatory digital health record for each of its citizens. Israel21c was at the Mobile Health Israel Conference to ask international experts how Israel has used the data to reach the cutting edge of mHealth technology.

We speak to :

Jill Seidman, managing director of Healthbox, an accelerator for health care startups

Dr Noel Harvey, Vice President of Research and Development at BD Technologies

Levi Shapiro, a partner a Veritas Ventures, an Israeli VC firm and organizer of the mHealth conference

Music: Getting Better - The Beatles
