On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week I’ll post live updates from the mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C. mHealth is the term of art for a growing field that seeks to harness mobile phone technology for health outcomes. It is a major driver of innovation in the health sector in the developing world, which will be a focus of much of the discussion this week.
Keynote speakers include Bill Gates, the White House’s first Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra, Rockefeller Foundation President Dr. Judith Rogin, and UN Foundation President Ted Turner. (The UN Foundation is one of the event’s sponsors. Disclosure.)
